    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 20:6

    Days of unleavened bread - The seven days of the passover, in which they ate unleavened bread. See the account of this festival in the notes on Exodus 12:1-51 (note). It is evident, from the manner in which St. Luke writes here, that he had not been with St. Paul since the time he accompanied him to Philippi, Acts 16:10-12; but he now embarks at Philippi with the apostle, and accompanies him to Troas, and continues with him through the rest of his journey.

    To Troas in five days - So long they were making this voyage from Philippi, being obliged to keep always by the coast, and in sight of the land; for the magnetic needle was not yet known. See the situation of these places upon the map.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 20:6

    After the days of unleavened bread - After the seven days of the Passover, during which they ate only unleavened bread. See Exodus 12.

    In five days - They crossed the Aegean Sea. Paul, when he crossed it on a former occasion, did it in two days Acts 16:11-12; but the navigation of the sea is uncertain, and they were now probably hindered by contrary winds.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 20:6

    20:6 We set sail - St. Luke was now with St. Paul again, as we learn from his manner of expressing himself.
