“And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.”
King James Version (KJV)
20:3 An ambush being laid for him - In his way to the ship.
Ac 20:3 The Jews laid wait for him. "A plot was laid against him by the Jews" (Revised Version). We have no further details, but it was, no doubt, a murderous plot. To prevent it, his plans were changed, and instead of sailing to Syria, he again took the route to Macedonia.
