Acts 27:19  Acts 27:39

19 And on the third day they threw the ship’s 1gear overboard, even with their own hands.

20 And when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and while no small storm was assailing us, from then on all hope that we might be saved was being abandoned.

21 And when they had been a long time without food, Paul then stood in their midst and said, O 1men, you 2should have listened to me and not set sail from Crete and gained this damage and loss.

22 And now I advise you to acheer up, for there will be bno loss of life among you, but only of the ship.

23 For this very anight an bangel of the God whose I cam and whom I 1dserve estood by me,

24 Saying, Do anot fear, Paul; you must 1stand before Caesar. And behold, God has bgranted you all those who are sailing with you.

25 Therefore, acheer up, 1men, for I bbelieve God that it shall be so, even in the way in which it has been cspoken to me.

26 But we must run aaground on a certain bisland.

27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about the middle of the night the sailors suspected that some land was approaching them.

28 And they 1took soundings and found it to be twenty 2fathoms; and when they had gone a little farther, they sounded again and found it to befifteen 2fathoms.

29 And afearing that we might run baground somewhere on 1rocky places, they threw four anchors from the stern and wished for day to come.

30 And when the sailors sought to flee from the ship, having lowered the asmall boat into the sea under pretense of intending to lay out anchors from the bow,

31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, Unless these men remain in the ship, you cannot be saved.

32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the small boat and let it fall away.

33 And until day was about to come, Paul encouraged them all to take some food, saying, Today is the fourteenth day that you have continued watching without food, taking nothing.

34 Therefore I encourage you to take some food, for this is for your salvation; for not a ahair from the head of any one of you shall perish.

35 And when he had said these things and had taken bread, he gave athanks to God before all; and he broke it and began to beat.

36 And all became acheerful, and they also took food.

37 Now we were in all two hundred and seventy-six souls in the ship.

38 And when they were satisfied with food, they began to lighten the ship, athrowing out the wheat into the sea.

39 And when day came, they could not recognize the land, but they noticed a certain bay, which had a beach, into which they took counsel to drive the ship, if they were able.
