27:1 And when our sailing to Italy was determined, they were delivering up both Paul and certain others, prisoners, to a centurion, by name Julius, of the band of Sebastus,
27:2 and having embarked in a ship of Adramyttium, we, being about to sail by the coasts of Asia, did set sail, there being with us Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica,
27:3 on the next `day' also we touched at Sidon, and Julius, courteously treating Paul, did permit `him', having gone on unto friends, to receive `their' care.
27:4 And thence, having set sail, we sailed under Cyprus, because of the winds being contrary,
27:5 and having sailed over the sea over-against Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myria of Lycia,
27:6 and there the centurion having found a ship of Alexandria, sailing to Italy, did put us into it,
27:7 and having sailed slowly many days, and with difficulty coming over-against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over-against Salmone,
27:8 and hardly passing it, we came to a certain place called `Fair Havens,' nigh to which was the city `of' Lasaea.
27:9 And much time being spent, and the sailing being now dangerous -- because of the fast also being already past -- Paul was admonishing,
27:10 saying to them, `Men, I perceive that with hurt, and much damage, not only of the lading and of the ship, but also of our lives -- the voyage is about to be;'
27:11 but the centurion to the pilot and to the shipowner gave credence more than to the things spoken by Paul;
27:12 and the haven being incommodious to winter in, the more part gave counsel to sail thence also, if by any means they might be able, having attained to Phenice, `there' to winter, `which is' a haven of Crete, looking to the south-west and north-west,
27:13 and a south wind blowing softly, having thought they had obtained `their' purpose, having lifted anchor, they sailed close by Crete,
27:14 and not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, that is called Euroclydon,
27:15 and the ship being caught, and not being able to bear up against the wind, having given `her' up, we were borne on,
27:16 and having run under a certain little isle, called Clauda, we were hardly able to become masters of the boat,
27:17 which having taken up, they were using helps, undergirding the ship, and fearing lest they may fall on the quicksand, having let down the mast -- so were borne on.
27:18 And we, being exceedingly tempest-tossed, the succeeding `day' they were making a clearing,
27:19 and on the third `day' with our own hands the tackling of the ship we cast out,
27:20 and neither sun nor stars appearing for more days, and not a little tempest lying upon us, thenceforth all hope was taken away of our being saved.
27:21 And there having been long fasting, then Paul having stood in the midst of them, said, `It behoved `you', indeed, O men -- having hearkened to me -- not to set sail from Crete, and to save this hurt and damage;
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;
27:23 for there stood by me this night a messenger of God -- whose I am, and whom I serve --
27:24 saying, Be not afraid Paul; before Caesar it behoveth thee to stand; and, lo, God hath granted to thee all those sailing with thee;
27:25 wherefore be of good cheer, men! for I believe God, that so it shall be, even as it hath been spoken to me,
27:26 and on a certain island it behoveth us to be cast.'
27:27 And when the fourteenth night came -- we being borne up and down in the Adria -- toward the middle of the night the sailors were supposing that some country drew nigh to them;
27:28 and having sounded they found twenty fathoms, and having gone a little farther, and again having sounded, they found fifteen fathoms,
27:29 and fearing lest on rough places we may fall, out of the stern having cast four anchors, they were wishing day to come.
27:30 And the sailors seeking to flee out of the ship, and having let down the boat to the sea, in pretence as `if' out of the foreship they are about to cast anchors,
27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, `If these do not remain in the ship -- ye are not able to be saved;'
27:32 then the soldiers did cut off the ropes of the boat, and suffered it to fall off.
27:33 And till the day was about to be, Paul was calling upon all to partake of nourishment, saying, `Fourteen days to-day, waiting, ye continue fasting, having taken nothing,
27:34 wherefore I call upon you to take nourishment, for this is for your safety, for of not one of you shall a hair from the head fall;'
27:35 and having said these things, and having taken bread, he gave thanks to God before all, and having broken `it', he began to eat;
27:36 and all having become of good cheer, themselves also took food,
27:37 (and we were -- all the souls in the ship -- two hundred, seventy and six),
27:38 and having eaten sufficient nourishment, they were lightening the ship, casting forth the wheat into the sea.
27:39 And when the day came, they were not discerning the land, but a certain creek were perceiving having a beach, into which they took counsel, if possible, to thrust forward the ship,
27:40 and the anchors having taken up, they were committing `it' to the sea, at the same time -- having loosed the bands of the rudders, and having hoisted up the mainsail to the wind -- they were making for the shore,
27:41 and having fallen into a place of two seas, they ran the ship aground, and the fore-part, indeed, having stuck fast, did remain immoveable, but the hinder-part was broken by the violence of the waves.
27:42 And the soldiers' counsel was that they should kill the prisoners, lest any one having swam out should escape,
27:43 but the centurion, wishing to save Paul, hindered them from the counsel, and did command those able to swim, having cast themselves out first -- to get unto the land,
27:44 and the rest, some indeed upon boards, and some upon certain things of the ship; and thus it came to pass that all came safe unto the land.
