View In My Bible
29 Fearing that we might 1run aground somewhere on the arocks, they cast four anchors from the stern and bwished for daybreak. 30 But as the sailors were trying to escape from the ship and had let down 2the ship's boat into the sea, on the pretense of intending to lay out anchors from the bow, 31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, "Unless these men remain in the ship, you yourselves cannot be saved." 32 Then the soldiers cut away the 3ropes of the ship's boat and let it fall away. 33 Until the day was about to dawn, Paul was encouraging them all to take some food, saying, "Today is the fourteenth day that you have been constantly watching and going without eating, having taken nothing. 34 "Therefore I encourage you to take some food, for this is for your preservation, for 4not a hair from the head of any of you will perish." 35 Having said this, he took bread and 5gave thanks to God in the presence of all, and he broke it and began to eat. 36 All 6of them cwere encouraged and they themselves also took food. 37 All of us in the ship were two hundred and seventy-six d7persons. 38 When they had eaten enough , they began to lighten the ship by 8throwing out the wheat into the sea. 39 When day came, 9they ecould not recognize the land; but they did observe a bay with a beach, and they resolved to drive the ship onto it if they could.
