Acts 21:8-14


On the next day we who were Paul's companions departed and came to Caesarea, and entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him.


Now this man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.


And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea.


When he had come to us, he took Paul's belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, "Thus says the Holy Spirit, 'So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.' "


Now when we heard these things, both we and those from that place pleaded with him not to go up to Jerusalem.


Then Paul answered, "What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."


So when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, "The will of the Lord be done."
