Acts 20. Paul left Ephesus ministered in Greece for 3 months, left and ministered at Troas, where on the last day there he preached on and on and a young man fell down from a third floor window and died, but was revived by Paul. Undaunted Paul continued preaching until daybreak, then he left and went to Miletus. From there he called the Ephesian Elders and when they arrived he exhorted them, said farewell and told them he would never see them again.

2 Samuel 15. Absalom revolted against David, and David Escaped from Jerusalem.
