Acts 27:27-44

GNT 27 It was the fourteenth night, and we were being driven in the Mediterranean by the storm. About midnight the sailors suspected that we were getting close to 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. GNT 28 So they dropped a line with a weight tied to it and found that the water was one hundred and twenty feet deep; a little later they did the same and found that it was ninety feet deep. 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. GNT 29 They were afraid that the ship would go on the rocks, so they lowered four anchors from the back of the ship and prayed for daylight. NIV 29 Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight. GNT 30 Then the sailors tried to escape from the ship; they lowered the boat into the water and pretended that they were going to put out some anchors from the front 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. GNT 31 But Paul said to the army officer and soldiers, "If the sailors don't stay on board, you have no hope of being saved." NIV 31 Then Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved.” GNT 32 So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the boat and let it go. NIV 32 So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the lifeboat and let it drift away. GNT 33 Just before dawn, Paul begged them all to eat some food: "You have been waiting for fourteen days now, and all this time you have not eaten a thing. 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. GNT 34 I beg you, then, eat some food; you need it in order to survive. Not even a hair of your heads will be lost." 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.” GNT 35 After saying this, Paul took some bread, gave thanks to God before them all, broke it, and 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. GNT 36 They took courage, and every one of them also ate some food. NIV 36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves. GNT 37 There was a total of 276 of us on board. NIV 37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. GNT 38 After everyone had eaten enough, they lightened the ship by throwing all 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. GNT 39 When day came, the sailors did not recognize the coast, but they noticed a bay with a beach and decided that, if possible, they would run the ship aground there. 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. GNT 40 So they cut off the anchors and let them sink in the sea, and at the same time they untied the ropes that held the steering oars. Then they raised the sail at the front of the ship so that the wind would blow the ship forward, and we headed 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. GNT 41 But the ship hit a sandbank and went aground; the front part of the ship got stuck and could not move, while the back part was being broken to pieces 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. GNT 42 The soldiers made a plan to kill all the prisoners, in order to keep them from swimming ashore and escaping. NIV 42 The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners to prevent any of them from swimming away and escaping. GNT 43 But the army officer wanted to save Paul, so he stopped them from doing this. Instead, he ordered everyone who could swim to jump overboard first and swim ashore; 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. GNT 44 the rest were to follow, holding on to the planks or to some broken pieces of the ship. And this was how we all got safely ashore. NIV 44 The rest were to get there on planks or on other pieces of the ship. In this way everyone reached land safely.
