Acts 27:17-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
17 After they had hoisted it up, they used asupporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might 1run aground on the shallows of Syrtis, they let down the bsea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along. 18 The next day as we were being violently storm-tossed, cthey began to 2jettison 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 dWhen they had gone a long time without food, then Paul stood up in their midst and said, "3Men, you ought to have efollowed my advice and not to have set sail from 4Crete and fincurred this 5damage and loss. 22 "Yet now I urge you to 6keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 23 "For this very night 7an angel of the God to whom I belong and 8whom I serve 9stood before me, 24 saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; 10you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you 11all those who are sailing with you.' 25 "Therefore, 12keep up your courage, men, for I believe God that git will turn out exactly as I have been told. 26 "But we must 13run aground on a certain 14island." 27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors began to surmise that hthey were approaching some land.
