    VERSE (25) -
    :38 Ro 15:23

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:25

    Y ahora, he aquí, yo s que ninguno de todos vosotros, por quienes he pasado predicando el Reino de Dios, ver ms mi rostro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:25

    Verse 25. Ye all-shall see my face no more.] This probably refers simply to the persons who were now present; concerning whom he might have had a
    Divine intimation, that they should not be found in life when he should come that way again. Or it may refer only to Ephesus and Miletus.

    From the dangers to which he was exposed, it was, humanly speaking, unlikely that he should ever return; and this may be all that is implied: but that he did revisit those parts, though probably not Miletus or Ephesus, appears likely from Phil. i. 25-27; ii. 24; Philemon 22; Heb. xiii. 19-23. But in all these places he speaks with a measure of uncertainty: he had not an absolute evidence that he should not return; but, in his own mind, it was a matter of uncertainty. The Holy Spirit did not think proper to give him a direct revelation on this point.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 25. And now behold , etc.] This is not only a note of asseveration, but of attention, stirring up to observe what is here asserted: I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more ; the sense is, that none of them should ever see him again, none of the churches of Asia, or the members of them; among whom he had been some years preaching the Gospel, the things concerning the Messiah, his kingdom and glory, and the meetness of the saints for, and their right unto the heavenly inheritance, prepared by God, and given by him to all that love him: Bezas ancient copy reads, the kingdom of Jesus: this the apostle knew by divine revelation, by the same spirit in which he was going bound to Jerusalem, though he knew not whether he should die there or elsewhere; however, he knew, and was persuaded, he should visit these parts no more.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-27 - The
    elders knew that Paul was no designing, self-seeking man. Those wh would in any office serve the Lord acceptably, and profitably to others, must do it with humility. He was a plain preacher, one tha spoke his message so as to be understood. He was a powerful preacher he preached the gospel as a testimony to them if they received it; but as a testimony against them if they rejected it. He was a profitabl preacher; one that aimed to inform their judgments, and reform their hearts and lives. He was a painful preacher, very industrious in his work. He was a faithful preacher; he did not keep back reproofs when necessary, nor keep back the preaching of the cross. He was a trul Christian, evangelical preacher; he did not preach notions or doubtfu matters; nor affairs of state or the civil government; but he preache faith and repentance. A better summary of these things, without whic there is no salvation, cannot be given: even repentance towards God and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ, with their fruits and effects Without these no sinner can escape, and with these none will come shor of eternal life. Let them not think that Paul left Asia for fear of persecution; he was in full expectation of trouble, yet resolved to go on, well assured that it was by Divine direction. Thanks be to God tha we know not the things which shall befall us during the year, the week the day which has begun. It is enough for the child of God to know tha his strength shall be equal to his day. He knows not, he would no know, what the day before him shall bring forth. The powerfu influences of the Holy Spirit bind the true Christian to his duty. Eve when he expects persecution and affliction, the love of Chris constrains him to proceed. None of these things moved Paul from his work; they did not deprive him of his comfort. It is the business of our life to provide for a joyful death. Believing that this was the last time they should see him, he appeals concerning his integrity. He had preached to them the whole counsel of God. As he had preached to them the gospel purely, so he had preached it to them entire; he faithfully did his work, whether men would bear or forbear.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    25. I know. The I is emphatic: I know through these
    special revelations to myself (ver. 23).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    20:25 {And now, behold} (kai nun, idou). Second
    time and solemn reminder as in verse #22. {I know} (egw oida). Emphasis on egw which is expressed. {Ye all} (humeis pantes). In very emphatic position after the verb oyesqe (shall see) and the object (my face). Twice Paul will write from Rome (#Php 2:24; Phm 1:22) the hope of coming east again; but that is in the future, and here Paul is expressing his personal conviction and his fears. The Pastoral Epistles show Paul did come to Ephesus again (#1Ti 1:3; 3:14; 4:13) and Troas (#2Ti 4:13) and Miletus (#2Ti 4:20). There need be no surprise that Paul's fears turned out otherwise. He had reason enough for them. {Among whom I went about} (en hois dielqon). Apparently Paul here has in mind others beside the ministers. They represented the church in Ephesus and the whole region where Paul labored.
