8 and with difficulty asailing past it we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea.
10 and said to them, “Men, I perceive that the voyage will certainly be with adamage and great loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives.”
12 Because the harbor was not suitable for wintering, the majority reached a decision to put out to sea from there, if somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of aCrete, facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there.
16 Running under the shelter of a small island called Clauda, we were scarcely able to get the ship’s 1boat under control.
17 After they had hoisted it up, they used 1supporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might arun aground on the shallows of Syrtis, they let down the 2sea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along.
21 1When they had gone a long time without food, then Paul stood up in their midst and said, “aMen, you ought to have 2followed my advice and not to have set sail from bCrete and 3incurred this adamage and loss.
22 “Yet now I urge you to akeep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.
27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors began to surmise that 1they were approaching some land.
30 But as the sailors were trying to escape from the ship and had let down athe ship’s boat into the sea, on the pretense of intending to lay out anchors from the bow,
32 Then the soldiers cut away the aropes of the ship’s boat and let it fall away.
33 Until the day was about to dawn, Paul was encouraging them all to take some food, saying, “Today is the fourteenth day that you have been constantly watching and going without eating, having taken nothing.
34 “Therefore I encourage you to take some food, for this is for your preservation, for anot a hair from the head of any of you will perish.”
35 Having said this, he took bread and agave thanks to God in the presence of all, and he broke it and began to eat.
38 When they had eaten enough, they began to lighten the ship by athrowing out the wheat into the sea.
40 And casting off athe anchors, they left them in the sea while at the same time they were loosening the ropes of the rudders; and hoisting the foresail to the wind, they were heading for the beach.
41 But striking a 1reef where two seas met, they ran the vessel aground; and the prow stuck fast and remained immovable, but the stern began to be broken up by the force of the waves.
42 The soldiers’ plan was to akill the prisoners, so that none of them would swim away and escape;
44 and the rest should follow, some on planks, and others on various things from the ship. And so it happened that athey all were brought safely to land.
