Acts 27

RHE 1 And when it was determined that he should sail into Italy and that Paul, with the other prisoners, should be delivered to a centurion, named Julius, of the band Augusta, 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. RHE 2 Going on board a ship of Adrumetum, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia, Aristarchus, the Macedonian of Thessalonica, continuing 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. RHE 3 And the day following, we came to Sidon. And Julius, treating Paul courteously, permitted him to go to his friends and to take care of himself. 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. RHE 4 And when we had launched from thence, we sailed under 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. RHE 5 And sailing over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Lystra, which is in Lycia. NIV 5 When we had sailed across the open sea off the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. RHE 6 And there, the centurion, finding a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy, removed us into it. NIV 6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy and put us on board. RHE 7 And when for many days we had sailed slowly and were scarce come over against Gnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed near Crete by 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. RHE 8 And with much ado sailing by it, we came into a certain place, which is called Good-havens, nigh to which was the city of Thalassa. NIV 8 We moved along the coast with difficulty and came to a place called Fair Havens, near the town of Lasea. RHE 9 And when much time was spent and when sailing now was dangerous, because the fast was now past, Paul comforted 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, RHE 10 Saying to them: Ye men, I see that the voyage beginneth to be with injury and much damage, not only of the lading and 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.” RHE 11 But the centurion believed the pilot and the master of the ship, more than those things which were said 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. RHE 12 And whereas it was not a commodious haven to winter in, the greatest part gave counsel to sail thence, if by any means they might reach Phenice, to winter there, which is a haven of Crete, looking towards the southwest and northwest. 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. RHE 13 And the south wind gently blowing, thinking that they had obtained their purpose, when they had loosed from Asson, 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. RHE 14 But not long after, there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroaquilo. NIV 14 Before very long, a wind of hurricane force, called the Northeaster, swept down from the island. RHE 15 And when the ship was caught and could not bear up against the wind, giving up the ship to the winds, we were driven. 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. RHE 16 And running under a certain island that is called Cauda, we had much work to come by the boat. NIV 16 As we passed to the lee of a small island called Cauda, we were hardly able to make the lifeboat secure, RHE 17 Which being taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship: and fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, they let down the sail yard 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. RHE 18 And we, being mightily tossed with the tempest, 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. RHE 19 And the third day they cast out with their own hands the tacking of the ship. NIV 19 On the third day, they threw the ship’s tackle overboard with their own hands. RHE 20 And when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and no small storms lay on us, all hope of our being saved was now taken away. 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. RHE 21 And after they had fasted a long time, Paul standing forth in the midst of them, said: You should indeed, O ye men, have hearkened unto me and not have loosed from Crete and have gained this harm 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. RHE 22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer. For there shall be no loss of any man’s 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. RHE 23 For an angel of God, whose I am and whom I serve, stood by me this night, NIV 23 Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me RHE 24 Saying: Fear not, Paul, thou must be brought before Caesar; and behold, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. 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.’ RHE 25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall so be, as it hath been 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. RHE 26 And we must come unto a certain island. NIV 26 Nevertheless, we must run aground on some island.” RHE 27 But after the fourteenth night was come, as we were sailing in Adria, about midnight, the shipmen deemed that they discovered some country. 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. RHE 28 Who also sounding, found twenty fathoms: and going on a little further, they found 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. RHE 29 Then fearing lest we should fall upon rough places, they cast four anchors out of the stern: and wished for the day. NIV 29 Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight. RHE 30 But as the shipmen sought to fly out of the ship, having let down the boat into the sea, under colour, as though they would have cast anchors out of the forepart of the ship, 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. RHE 31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers: Except these 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.” RHE 32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat and let her fall off. NIV 32 So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the lifeboat and let it drift away. RHE 33 And when it began to be light, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying: This day is the fourteenth day that you have waited and continued fasting, taking 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. RHE 34 Wherefore, I pray you to take some meat for your health’s sake: for there shall not an hair of the head of any of you perish. 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.” RHE 35 And when he had said these things, taking bread, he gave thanks to God in the sight 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. RHE 36 Then were they all of better cheer: and they also took some meat. NIV 36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves. RHE 37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls. NIV 37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. RHE 38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, casting 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. RHE 39 And when it was day, they knew not the land. But they discovered a certain creek that had a shore, into which they minded, if they could, to thrust in the ship. 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. RHE 40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, loosing withal the rudder bands. And hoisting up the mainsail to the wind, they made towards 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. RHE 41 And when we were fallen into a place where two seas met, they run the ship aground. And the forepart indeed, sticking fast, remained unmoveable: but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the sea. 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. RHE 42 And the soldiers’ counsel was that they should kill the prisoners, lest any of them, swimming out should escape. NIV 42 The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners to prevent any of them from swimming away and escaping. RHE 43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, forbade it to be done. And he commanded that they who could swim should cast themselves first into the sea and save themselves 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. RHE 44 And the rest, some they carried on boards and some on those things that belonged to the ship. And so it came to pass that every soul got safe 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.
