Acts 27

NKJV 1 And when it was decided that we should sail to Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to one named Julius, a centurion of the Augustan Regiment. NIV 1 When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, Paul and some other prisoners were handed over to a centurion named Julius, who belonged to the Imperial Regiment. NKJV 2 So, entering a ship of Adramyttium, we put to sea, meaning to sail along the coasts of Asia. Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, was with us. NIV 2 We boarded a ship from Adramyttium about to sail for ports along the coast of the province of Asia, and we put out to sea. Aristarchus, a Macedonian from Thessalonica, was with us. NKJV 3 And the next day we landed at Sidon. And Julius treated Paul kindly and gave him liberty to go to his friends and receive care. NIV 3 The next day we landed at Sidon; and Julius, in kindness to Paul, allowed him to go to his friends so they might provide for his needs. NKJV 4 When we had put to sea from there, we sailed under the shelter of Cyprus, because the winds were contrary. NIV 4 From there we put out to sea again and passed to the lee of Cyprus because the winds were against us. NKJV 5 And when we had sailed over the sea which is off Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia. NIV 5 When we had sailed across the open sea off the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. NKJV 6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing to Italy, and he put us on board. NIV 6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy and put us on board. NKJV 7 When we had sailed slowly many days, and arrived with difficulty off Cnidus, the wind not permitting us to proceed, we sailed under the shelter of Crete off Salmone. NIV 7 We made slow headway for many days and had difficulty arriving off Cnidus. When the wind did not allow us to hold our course, we sailed to the lee of Crete, opposite Salmone. NKJV 8 Passing it with difficulty, we came to a place called Fair Havens, near the city of Lasea. NIV 8 We moved along the coast with difficulty and came to a place called Fair Havens, near the town of Lasea. NKJV 9 Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them, NIV 9 Much time had been lost, and sailing had already become dangerous because by now it was after the Day of Atonement. So Paul warned them, NKJV 10 saying, "Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also 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.” NKJV 11 Nevertheless the centurion was more persuaded by the helmsman and the owner of the ship than by the things spoken by Paul. 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. NKJV 12 And because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised to set sail from there also, if by any means they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete opening toward the southwest and northwest, and winter there. NIV 12 Since the harbor was unsuitable to winter in, the majority decided that we should sail on, hoping to reach Phoenix and winter there. This was a harbor in Crete, facing both southwest and northwest. NKJV 13 When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete. NIV 13 When a gentle south wind began to blow, they saw their opportunity; so they weighed anchor and sailed along the shore of Crete. NKJV 14 But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called Euroclydon. NIV 14 Before very long, a wind of hurricane force, called the Northeaster, swept down from the island. NKJV 15 So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive. NIV 15 The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along. NKJV 16 And running under the shelter of an island called Clauda, we secured the skiff with difficulty. NIV 16 As we passed to the lee of a small island called Cauda, we were hardly able to make the lifeboat secure, NKJV 17 When they had taken it on board, they used cables to undergird the ship; and fearing lest they should run aground on the Syrtis Sands, they struck sail and so were driven. NIV 17 so the men hoisted it aboard. Then they passed ropes under the ship itself to hold it together. Because they were afraid they would run aground on the sandbars of Syrtis, they lowered the sea anchor and let the ship be driven along. NKJV 18 And because we were exceedingly tempest-tossed, the next day they lightened the ship. NIV 18 We took such a violent battering from the storm that the next day they began to throw the cargo overboard. NKJV 19 On the third day we threw the ship's tackle overboard with our own hands. NIV 19 On the third day, they threw the ship’s tackle overboard with their own hands. NKJV 20 Now when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest beat on us, all hope that we would be saved was finally given up. NIV 20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved. NKJV 21 But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them and said, "Men, you should have listened to me, and not have sailed from Crete and incurred this disaster and loss. NIV 21 After they had gone a long time without food, Paul stood up before them and said: “Men, you should have taken my advice not to sail from Crete; then you would have spared yourselves this damage and loss. NKJV 22 And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. NIV 22 But now I urge you to keep up your courage, because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed. NKJV 23 For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, NIV 23 Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me NKJV 24 saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.' NIV 24 and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.’ NKJV 25 Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. NIV 25 So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me. NKJV 26 However, we must run aground on a certain island." NIV 26 Nevertheless, we must run aground on some island.” NKJV 27 Now when the fourteenth night had come, as we were driven up and down in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors sensed that they were drawing near some land. NIV 27 On the fourteenth night we were still being driven across the Adriatic Sea, when about midnight the sailors sensed they were approaching land. NKJV 28 And they took soundings and found it to be twenty fathoms; and when they had gone a little farther, they took soundings again and found it to be fifteen fathoms. NIV 28 They took soundings and found that the water was a hundred and twenty feet deep. A short time later they took soundings again and found it was ninety feet deep. NKJV 29 Then, fearing lest we should run aground on the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern, and prayed for day to come. NIV 29 Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight. NKJV 30 And as the sailors were seeking to escape from the ship, when they had let down the skiff into the sea, under pretense of putting out anchors from the prow, NIV 30 In an attempt to escape from the ship, the sailors let the lifeboat down into the sea, pretending they were going to lower some anchors from the bow. NKJV 31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, "Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot be saved." NIV 31 Then Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved.” NKJV 32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the skiff and let it fall off. NIV 32 So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the lifeboat and let it drift away. NKJV 33 And as day was about to dawn, Paul implored them all to take food, saying, "Today is the fourteenth day you have waited and continued without food, and eaten nothing. NIV 33 Just before dawn Paul urged them all to eat. “For the last fourteen days,” he said, “you have been in constant suspense and have gone without food—you haven’t eaten anything. NKJV 34 Therefore I urge you to take nourishment, for this is for your survival, since not a hair will fall from the head of any of you." NIV 34 Now I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head.” NKJV 35 And when he had said these things, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of them all; and when he had broken it he began to eat. NIV 35 After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat. NKJV 36 Then they were all encouraged, and also took food themselves. NIV 36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves. NKJV 37 And in all we were two hundred and seventy-six persons on the ship. NIV 37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. NKJV 38 So when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship and threw out the wheat into the sea. NIV 38 When they had eaten as much as they wanted, they lightened the ship by throwing the grain into the sea. NKJV 39 When it was day, they did not recognize the land; but they observed a bay with a beach, onto which they planned to run the ship if possible. NIV 39 When daylight came, they did not recognize the land, but they saw a bay with a sandy beach, where they decided to run the ship aground if they could. NKJV 40 And they let go the anchors and left them in the sea, meanwhile loosing the rudder ropes; and they hoisted the mainsail to the wind and made for shore. NIV 40 Cutting loose the anchors, they left them in the sea and at the same time untied the ropes that held the rudders. Then they hoisted the foresail to the wind and made for the beach. NKJV 41 But striking a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the prow stuck fast and remained immovable, but the stern was being broken up by the violence of the waves. NIV 41 But the ship struck a sandbar and ran aground. The bow stuck fast and would not move, and the stern was broken to pieces by the pounding of the surf. NKJV 42 And the soldiers' plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim away and escape. NIV 42 The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners to prevent any of them from swimming away and escaping. NKJV 43 But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land, NIV 43 But the centurion wanted to spare Paul’s life and kept them from carrying out their plan. He ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and get to land. NKJV 44 and the rest, some on boards and some on parts of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land. NIV 44 The rest were to get there on planks or on other pieces of the ship. In this way everyone reached land safely.
