徒 Acts 19: 21-22
21 这些事以后，保罗心里定意要经过马其顿、亚该亚，往耶路撒冷去。他说：“我到了那边以后，也该去罗马看看。” 22 于是从服事他的人中，派了提摩太和以拉都两人去马其顿，自己暂时留在亚西亚。
21 After all this had happened, Paul decided to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. “After I have been there,” he said, “I must visit Rome also.” 22 He sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, while he stayed in the province of Asia a little longer.
Paul’s whole intention was to benefit the churches, neglecting his own convenience, for he preferred to deprive himself of Timothy rather than not to provide for the Macedonians, even though Timothy was the best and most faithful, the dearest, and in fact the most suitable companion of all.
