Acts 27:10-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 and said to them, "Men, I perceive that the voyage will certainly be with 1damage and great loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives." 11 But the centurion was more persuaded by the 2pilot and the acaptain of the ship than by what was being said by Paul. 12 Because the harbor was not suitable for wintering, the majority reached a decision to put out to sea from there, if somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of 3Crete, facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there. 13 bWhen a moderate south wind came up, supposing that they had attained their purpose, they weighed anchor and began 4sailing along 5Crete, close inshore.

Shipwreck

14 But before very long there 6rushed down from cthe land a violent wind, called dEuraquilo; 15 and when the ship was caught in it and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and let ourselves be driven along. 16 Running under the shelter of a small island called Clauda, we were scarcely able to get the ship's eboat under control. 17 After they had hoisted it up, they used fsupporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might 7run aground on the shallows of Syrtis, they let down the gsea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along. 18 The next day as we were being violently storm-tossed, hthey began to 8jettison the cargo; 19 and on the third day they threw the ship's tackle overboard with their own hands. 20 Since neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small storm was assailing us, from then on all hope of our being saved was gradually abandoned. 21 iWhen they had gone a long time without food, then Paul stood up in their midst and said, "9Men, you ought to have jfollowed my advice and not to have set sail from 10Crete and kincurred this 11damage and loss. 22 "Yet now I urge you to 12keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 23 "For this very night 13an angel of the God to whom I belong and 14whom I serve 15stood before me, 24 saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; 16you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you 17all those who are sailing with you.' 25 "Therefore, 18keep up your courage, men, for I believe God that lit will turn out exactly as I have been told.
