    King James Bible - Acts 20:9

    And a certain young man named Eutychus, sitting on the
    window, being oppressed with a deep sleep, (as Paul was long preaching,) by occasion of his sleep fell from the third loft down, and was taken up dead.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And there sat in a
    window a certain young man named Eutychus, having fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell from the third loft, and was taken up dead.

    VERSE (9) -
    Jon 1:5,6 Mt 26:40,41 Mr 13:36

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:9

    Y un joven llamado Eutico que estaba sentado en una ventana, tomado de un sueo profundo, como Pablo predicaba largamente, postrado del sueo cay del tercer piso abajo, y fue alzado muerto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 20:9

    Verse 9. There sat in a
    window] This was probably an opening in the wall, to let in light and air, for there was no glazing at that time; and it is likely that Eutychus fell backward through it, down to the ground, on the outside; there being nothing to prevent his falling out, when he had once lost the power to take care of himself, by getting into a deep sleep.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. And there sat in a
    window a certain young man , etc.] In the upper room, where he placed himself, either for air and refreshment, the chamber being suffocating, through the number of people, and of lights; or for want of room, the place being full: named Eutychus ; a Greek name, which signifies one of good fortune: being fallen into a deep sleep ; which may be accounted for without aggravating the case; as from his youth, he was a young man, and so more subject to sleep, and more easily overcome with it, than persons in years, by reason of the humours of the body which incline to it; and also from the length of service, and the lateness of the season of the night, all which contributed to bring on this deep sleep: it can hardly be thought that he purposely composed himself to sleep, for had he, he would never have chose so dangerous a place to sit in as a window, and that at so great an height from the ground; but this sleep seemed to come upon him at an unawares; what hand soever Satan might have in it, with a view to the young mans hurt, both as to soul and body, and to bring reproach and scandal upon the church, and the Gospel, it seems evident that the providence of God was in it, and which overruled it for a good end, even the greater confirmation of the Gospel, and very probably for the spiritual good of the young man. And as Paul was long preaching he sunk down with sleep ; being quite overcome, and bore down with it, not able to hold up his head, he either bowed down, or leaned backwards: and fell down from the third loft: or three story high, where the upper room was. It seems that he did not fall inward, for then he would have fallen no further than the floor of the upper room, but outward, out of the window into the street or yard; and this is the more evident from Pauls going down to him, mentioned in the next verse: and was taken up dead ; not only for dead, or as one dead, but he really was dead, as it is no wonder he should.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-12 - Though the
    disciples read, and meditated, and prayed, and sung apart and thereby kept up communion with God, yet they came together to worship God, and so kept up their communion with one another. They cam together on the first day of the week, the Lord's day. It is to be religiously observed by all disciples of Christ. In the breaking of the bread, not only the breaking of Christ's body for us, to be a sacrific for our sins, is remembered, but the breaking of Christ's body to us to be food and a feast for our souls, is signified. In the early time it was the custom to receive the Lord's supper every Lord's day, thu celebrating the memorial of Christ's death. In this assembly Pau preached. The preaching of the gospel ought to go with the sacraments They were willing to hear, he saw they were so, and continued his speech till midnight. Sleeping when hearing the word, is an evil thing a sign of low esteem of the word of God. We must do what we can to prevent being sleepy; not put ourselves to sleep, but get our heart affected with the word we hear, so as to drive sleep far away Infirmity requires tenderness; but contempt requires severity. I interrupted the apostle's preaching; but was made to confirm his preaching. Eutychus was brought to life again. And as they knew no when they should have Paul's company again, they made the best use of it they could, and reckoned a night's sleep well lost for that purpose How seldom are hours of repose broken for the purposes of devotion! but how often for mere amusement or sinful revelry! So hard is it for spiritual life to thrive in the heart of man! so naturally do carna practices flourish there!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. The
    window. See on ch. ix. 25. The windows of an Eastern house are closed with lattice-work, and usually reach down to the floor, resembling a door rather than a window. They open, for the most part, to the court, and not to the street, and are usually kept open on account of the heat.

    Fallen into a deep sleep (kataferomenov upnw baqei). Lit., born down by, etc. A common Greek phrase for being over come by sleep. In medical language the verb was more frequently used in this sense, absolutely, than with the addition of sleep. In this verse the word is used twice: in the first instance, in the present participle, denoting the corning on of drowsiness - falling asleep; and the second time, in the aorist participle, denoting his being completely overpowered by sleep. Mr. Hobart thinks that the mention of the causes of Eutychus' drowsiness - the heat and smell arising; from the numerous lamps, the length of the discourse, and the lateness of the hour - are characteristic of a physician's narrative. Compare Luke xxii. 45.

    Dead (nekrov). Actually dead. Not as dead, or for dead.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    20:9 {Sat} (kaqezomenos). Sitting (present middle participle describing his posture). {In the window} (epi tes quridos). Old word diminutive from qura, door, a little door. Latticed window (no glass) opened because of the heat from the lamps and the crowd. Our window was once spelt _windore_ (Hudibras), perhaps from the wrong idea that it was derived from _wind_ and _door_. Eutychus (a common slave name) was sitting on (epi) the window sill. Ahaziah "fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber" (#2Ki 1:2). In the N.T. quris only here and #2Co 11:33 (dia quridos) through which Paul was let down through the wall in Damascus. {Borne down with deep sleep} (kataferomenos hupnwi baqei). Present passive participle of kataferw, to bear down, and followed by instrumental case (hupnwi). Describes the gradual process of going into deep sleep. Great medical writers use baqus with hupnos as we do today (deep sleep). D here has basei (heavy) for baqei (deep). {As Paul discoursed yet longer} (dialegomenou tou paulou epi pleion). Genitive absolute of present middle participle of dialegomai (cf. verse #7). with epi pleion. Eutychus struggled bravely to keep awake, vainly hoping that Paul would finish. But he went on "for more." {Being born down by his sleep} (katenecqeis apo tou hupnou). First aorist (effective) passive showing the final result of the process described by kataferomenos, finally overcome as a result of (apo) the (note article tou) sleep (ablative case). These four participles (kaqezomenos, kataferomenos, dialegomenou, katenecqeis) have no connectives, but are distinguished clearly by case and tense. The difference between the present kataferomenos and the aorist katenecqeis of the same verb is marked. {Fell down} (epesen katw). Effective aorist active indicative of piptw with the adverb katw, though katapiptw (compound verb) could have been used (#Ac 26:14; 28:6). Hobart (_Medical Language of St. Luke_) thinks that Luke shows a physician's interest in the causes of the drowsiness of Eutychus (the heat, the crowd, the smell of the lamps, the late hour, the long discourse). Cf. #Lu 22:45. {From the third story} (apo tou tristegou). From treis (three) and stege (roof), adjective tristegos having three roofs. {Was taken up dead} (erqe nekros). First aorist passive indicative of air". Luke does not say hws (as) or hwsei (#Mr 9:26 as if). The people considered him dead and Luke the physician seems to agree with that view.
