Acts 20:23 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Testifieth (διαμαρτύρεται)

The compound verb signifies full, clear testimony. Not by internal intimations of the Spirit, but by prophetic declarations "in every city." Two of these are mentioned subsequently, at Tyre and Caesarea (Acts 21:4, Acts 21:11).
