Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 20:5-6

_ _ These going before — perhaps to announce and prepare for the apostle’s coming.

_ _ tarried for us at Troas.


Acts 20:6

_ _ And we sailed ... from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread — (that is, the Passover). This, compared with 1 Corinthians 16:8, shows that the three months spent at Corinth (Acts 20:3) were the winter months.

_ _ came ... to Troas — for the third and last time. (See on Acts 16:8 and see on Acts 20:1).

_ _ in the five days — As it might have been done in two days, the wind must have been adverse. The vivid style of one now present will be here again observed.

_ _ where we abode seven days — that is, arriving on a Monday, they stayed over the Jewish sabbath and the Lord’s Day following; Paul occupying himself, doubtless, in refreshing and strengthening fellowship with the brethren during the interval.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 20:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 20:6

We set sail — St. Luke was now with St. Paul again, as we learn from his manner of expressing himself.
