Acts 27:1  Acts 27:18

1 And when it was decided that 1we should sail to aItaly, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion named Julius of the 2Augustan 3cohort.

2 And going on board an Adramyttian ship which was about to sail to places along the coast of Asia, we 1put out to sea, aAristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.

3 And on the next day we landed at Sidon; and Julius, treating Paul akindly, allowed him to go to his friends to receive care.

4 And from there we put out to sea and sailed under the shelter of Cyprus because the winds were contrary.

5 And having sailed across the open sea which lies off Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came down to Myra of Lycia.

6 And there the centurion found an aAlexandrian ship sailing for Italy, and he put us onto it.

7 And when we had sailed slowly for a considerable number of days and came with difficulty off Cnidus, the wind not permitting us to go on, we sailed under the shelter of Crete, off Salmone.

8 And coasting along it with difficulty, we came to a certain place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea.

9 And when considerable time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous, and also because the 1Fast had already gone by, Paul advised them,

11 But the centurion was persuaded by the navigator and the ship’s aowner rather than by the things that were being said by Paul.

12 And as the harbor was not suitable for wintering, the majority gave counsel to put out to sea from there, if somehow they might be able to reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete 1facing northeast and southeast, and spend the winter there.

13 And when a south wind blew gently, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed along Crete close inshore.

14 But not long afterward there beat down from 1the island a hurricane awind called 2Euraquilo.

15 And when the ship was caught by it and was not able to face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along.

16 And running under the shelter of a certain little island called Clauda, we were hardly able to 1get control of the asmall boat.

17 And when they had hoisted it up, they 1used supports to undergird the ship. And because they afeared that they might run aground on 2Syrtis, they 3lowered the gear and so were driven along.

18 The next day, as we were being violently storm-tossed, they began to ajettison the cargo;
