Do not go to Jerusalem! (Acts 21:12)

“When we heard this,

We,

And the people there,

Urged Paul

Not to go up to Jerusalem.”

ὡς δὲ ἠκούσαμεν ταῦτα, παρεκαλοῦμεν ἡμεῖς τε καὶ οἱ ἐντόπιοι τοῦ μὴ ἀναβαίνειν αὐτὸν εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ.

The author of Acts indicated that when the companions of Paul heard this (ὡς δὲ ἠκούσαμεν ταῦτα), everyone there in that place (ἡμεῖς τε καὶ οἱ ἐντόπιοι τοῦ) urged (παρεκαλοῦμεν) Paul not to go up (μὴ ἀναβαίνειν αὐτὸν) to Jerusalem (εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ).  Upon hearing this from the prophet, the traveling companions of Paul, including the author of Acts, and everybody there tried to convince Paul not to go to Jerusalem.  Have you ever been told not to go to someplace?
