Acts 27:12

Overview - Acts 27
Paul shipping towards Rome,
10 foretells of the danger of the voyage,

41 and suffer shipwreck;
44 yet all come safe to land.

Acts 27:12  (King James Version)
And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west.

the haven
8 ; Psalms 107:30

Phenice, was a sea-port on the western side of Crete; probably defended from the fury of the winds by a high and winding shore, forming a semicircle, and perhaps by some small island in front; leaving two openings, one towards the south-west, and the other towards the north-west.
