Paul and Silas came to Derbe, and then to Lystra. And there was disciple called Timothy, son of a Jewess whose father was a Greek. Paul wanted to take him along and circumcised him. As they visited one town after another, they passed on the decisions reached by the apostles and elders. They went through Phrygia, Galatia, Mysia, Bithynia, but the Holy Ghost forbade them to speak in Asia. So they went to Mysia and came down to Troas. And a vision came to Paul in the night that told him to come to Macedonia to help. From Troas they went to Samothrace; the next day left for Neapolis and from there to Philippi, the principal city of that part of Macedonia..
