When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to.
King James Bible
After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
American Standard Version
and when they were come over against Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia; and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not;
Young's Literal Translation
having gone toward Mysia, they were trying to go on toward Bithynia, and the Spirit did not suffer them,
Acts 16:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
After they were come to Mysia - They passed through Phrygia into Mysia, which lay between Bithynia on the north, Phrygia on the east, Aeolia on the south, and the Mediterranean on the west.
But the Spirit suffered them not - God saw that that was not the most proper time to preach the word at Bithynia; as he willed them to go immediately to Macedonia, the people there being ripe for the word of life. Instead of το πνευμα, the Spirit merely, το πνευμα Ιησου, the Spirit of Jesus, is the reading of ABCDE, several others, with both the Syriac, the Coptic, Ethiopic, Armenian, Vulgate, Itala, and several of the fathers. The reading is undoubtedly genuine, and should be immediately restored to the text.
