and said to them, "Men, I perceive that the voyagewillcertainly be with 1damage and greatloss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives."
But the centurion was morepersuaded by the 2pilot and the acaptain of the shipthan by what was being said by Paul.
Because the harbor was not suitable for wintering, the majorityreached a decision to put out to sea from there, ifsomehow they couldreachPhoenix, a harbor of 3Crete, facingsouthwest and northwest, and spend the winter there.
13bWhen a moderatesouthwindcame up, supposing that they had attained their purpose, they weighedanchor and began 4sailingalong5Crete, close inshore.
But beforeverylong there 6rusheddown from cthe land a violentwind, calleddEuraquilo ;
and when the ship was caught in it and could not face the wind, we gaveway to it and let ourselves be driven along.
16Runningunder the shelter of a smallislandcalledClauda, we were scarcelyable to get the ship's eboatundercontrol.
After they had hoisted it up, they usedfsupportingcables in undergirding the ship ; and fearing that they might 7runaground on the shallows of Syrtis, they letdown the gseaanchor and in thisway let themselves be driven along.
The next day as we were being violentlystorm-tossed, hthey began to 8jettison the cargo ;
and on the third day they threw the ship'stackle overboard with their ownhands.
Since neithersunnorstarsappeared for manydays, and nosmallstorm was assailing us, from then on allhope of our being saved was gradually abandoned.
21iWhen they had gone a longtimewithoutfood, thenPaulstood up in their midst and said, "9Men, you ought to have jfollowed my advice and not to have setsail from 10Crete and kincurredthis11damage and loss.
"Yet now I urge you to 12keep up your courage, for there will be noloss of lifeamong you, but only of the ship.
"For this very night13an angel of the God to whom I belong and 14whom I serve15stoodbefore me,
24saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul ; 16you muststandbeforeCaesar ; and behold, God has granted you 17allthose who are sailing with you.'
25"Therefore, 18keep up your courage, men, for I believeGod that lit will turn out exactly as I have been told.
