    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 20:1

    After the uproar was ceased - The tumult excited by Demetrius apparently induced Paul to leave Ephesus sooner than he had intended. He had written to the Corinthians that he should leave that place after pentecost, 1 Corinthians 16:8; but it is very probable that he left it sooner.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 20:1

    The uproar - The tumult excited, by Demetrius and the workmen. After it had been quieted by the town-clerk, Acts 19:40-41.

    Embraced them - Saluted them; gave them parting expressions of kindness. Compare the Luke 7:45 note; Romans 16:16 note; 1 Corinthians 16:20 note; 2 Corinthians 13:12 note; 1 Thessalonians 5:26 note; 1 Peter 5:14 note. The Syriac translates this, "Paul caned the disciples, and consoled them, and kissed them."

    To go into Macedonia - On his way to Jerusalem, agreeably to his purpose, as recorded in Acts 19:21.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 20:1

    20:1 After the tumult was ceased - So Demetrius gained nothing. Paul remained there till all was quiet.
