NIV 8 We moved along the coast with difficulty and came to a place called Fair Havens, near the town of Lasea. NRS 9 Since much time had been lost and sailing was now dangerous, because even the Fast had already gone by, Paul advised them, NIV 9 Much time had been lost, and sailing had already become dangerous because by now it was after the Fast. So Paul warned them, NRS 10 saying, "Sirs, I can see that the voyage will be with danger and much heavy loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives." NIV 10 "Men, I can see that our voyage is going to be disastrous and bring great loss to ship and cargo, and to our own lives also." NRS 11 But the centurion paid more attention to the pilot and to the owner of the ship than to what Paul said. NIV 11 But the centurion, instead of listening to what Paul said, followed the advice of the pilot and of the owner of the ship.
