27:1 And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band. Acts
27:2 And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia. Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, was with us. Acts
27:3 And the next day we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously treated Paul, and gave him freedom to go to his friends to refresh himself. Acts
27:4 And when we had launched from there, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary. Acts
27:5 And when we had sailed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Mira, a city of Lycia. Acts
27:6 And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us in it. Acts
27:7 And when we had sailed slowly many days, and with difficulty had come over against Cnidus, the wind not allowing us, we sailed under Crete, over against Salmone: Acts
27:8 And hardly passing it, came to a place which is called, The fair havens; near to which was the city of Lasea.
27:9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them. Acts
27:10 And said to them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives. Acts
27:11 Nevertheless, the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship more than the things which were spoken by Paul. Acts
27:12 And because the harbor was not commodious to winter in, the greater part advised to depart from there also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is a harbor of Crete, and lies towards the southwest and northwest.
27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing from there, they sailed close by Crete.
27:14 But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon. Acts
27:15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive. Acts
27:16 And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, with much work we had secured the boat: Acts
27:17 Which when they had taken up, they used ropes to undergird the ship; and fearing, lest they should fall into the quicksands, they struck sail, and so were driven. Acts
27:18 And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship; Acts
27:19 And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship. Acts
27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
27:21 But after long abstinence, Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, you* should have listened to me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. Acts
27:22 And now I exhort you* to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of life among you*, but of the ship. Acts
27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of Elohim, whose I am, and whom I serve, Acts
27:24 Saying, Do not fear, Paul; you must be brought before Cesar: and behold, Elohim has given you all those who sail with you. Acts
27:25 Therefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe Elohim, that it will be even as it was told to me. Acts
27:26 But we must be cast upon a certain island.
27:27 When the fourteenth night had come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen suspected that they drew near to some country: Acts
27:28 And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms. Acts
27:29 Then fearing lest we should fall upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day. Acts
27:30 And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under color as though they would cast anchors out of the foreship, Acts
27:31 Paul said to the centurion, and to the soldiers, Unless these abide in the ship, you* cannot be saved. Acts
27:32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.
27:33 And while the day was coming on, Paul prayed them all to take food, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that you* have stayed, and continued fasting, having taken nothing. Acts
27:34 Therefore I pray you* to take some food; for this is for your* health: for there shall not a hair fall from the head of any of you*. Acts
27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to Elohim in presence of them all; and when he had broken it, he began to eat. Acts
27:36 Then they were all of good cheer, and they also took food. Acts
27:37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred and seventy-six souls. Acts
27:38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast the wheat into the sea.
27:39 And when it was day, they did not know the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into which they purposed, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship. Acts
27:40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, loosed the rudder bands, hoisted the mainsail to the wind, and made towards the shore. Acts
27:41 And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained immovable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves. Acts
27:42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape. Acts
27:43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim, should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land: Acts
27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship: And so it came to pass, that they all escaped safely to land.
