fortunate, (Ac 20:9-12), a young man of Troas who fell through drowsiness from the open window of the third floor of the house where Paul was preaching, and was "taken up dead." The lattice-work of the window being open to admit the air, the lad fell out and down to the court below. Paul restored him to life again. (Comp. 1Ki 17:21; 2Ki 4:34.)
Ac 20:9. A youth who sat in a window and, falling asleep during Paul's long and late discourse, fell from the third story, and was restored to life by the apostle, who fell on the dead body and embraced it, as Elijah of old (1Ki 17:21), and Elisha (2Ki 4:34).
A young man who fell down from a third storey while sleeping during St. Paul's sermon at Troas, and was 'taken up dead' (Ac 20:9). St. Paul fell on him and, embracing him, declared life to be in him. It is not actually said that Eutychus was dead, but that seems at least to have been the general belief. The incident is described in parallel terms with the raising of Dorcas and of Jairus' daughter.
