And when we had sailed slowly many days and scarcely had come as far as Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under the lee of Crete off Salmone;
and, with difficulty passing by it, we came unto a place which is called The Fair Havens, nigh unto the city of Lasea.
Now after much time had been lost, and when sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was now already past, Paul admonished them
and said unto them, "Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be attended by hurt and much damage, not only to the lading and ship, but also to our lives."
Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, rather than those things which were spoken by Paul.
And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the greater number advised to depart thence also, hoping that by some means they might attain Phoenix, which is a haven of Crete and lieth toward the southwest and northwest, and there to winter.
And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, casting loose from thence, they sailed close by Crete.
