Acts 27:7-13

MSG 7 We ran into bad weather and found it impossible to stay on course. After much difficulty, we finally made it to the southern coast of the island of Crete 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. MSG 8 and docked at Good Harbor (appropriate name!). NIV 8 We moved along the coast with difficulty and came to a place called Fair Havens, near the town of Lasea. MSG 9 By this time we had lost a lot of time. We had passed the autumn equinox, so it would be stormy weather from now on through the winter, too dangerous for sailing. Paul warned, 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, MSG 10 "I see only disaster ahead for cargo and ship - to say nothing of our lives! - if we put out to sea now." 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.” MSG 11 The centurion set Paul's warning aside and let the ship captain and the shipowner talk him into trying for the next harbor. 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. MSG 12 But it was not the best harbor for staying the winter. Phoenix, a few miles further on, was more suitable. 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. MSG 13 When a gentle southerly breeze came up, they weighed anchor, thinking it would be smooth sailing. 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.
