1: And when our sailing to Italy was determined, they were delivering up both Paul and certain others, prisoners, to a centurion, by name Julius, of the band of Sebastus, 2: and having embarked in a ship of Adramyttium, we, being about to sail by the coasts of Asia, did set sail, there being with us Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, 3: on the next [day] also we touched at Sidon, and Julius, courteously treating Paul, did permit [him], having gone on unto friends, to receive [their] care. 4: And thence, having set sail, we sailed under Cyprus, because of the winds being contrary, 5: and having sailed over the sea over-against Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myria of Lycia, 6: and there the centurion having found a ship of Alexandria, sailing to Italy, did put us into it, 7: and having sailed slowly many days, and with difficulty coming over-against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over-against Salmone, 8: and hardly passing it, we came to a certain place called 'Fair Havens,' nigh to which was the city [of] Lasaea. 9: And much time being spent, and the sailing being now dangerous -- because of the fast also being already past -- Paul was admonishing, 10: saying to them, 'Men, I perceive that with hurt, and much damage, not only of the lading and of the ship, but also of our lives -- the voyage is about to be;' 11: but the centurion to the pilot and to the shipowner gave credence more than to the things spoken by Paul; 12: and the haven being incommodious to winter in, the more part gave counsel to sail thence also, if by any means they might be able, having attained to Phenice, [there] to winter, [which is] a haven of Crete, looking to the south-west and north-west, 13: and a south wind blowing softly, having thought they had obtained [their] purpose, having lifted anchor, they sailed close by Crete, 14: and not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, that is called Euroclydon, 15: and the ship being caught, and not being able to bear up against the wind, having given [her] up, we were borne on, 16: and having run under a certain little isle, called Clauda, we were hardly able to become masters of the boat, 17: which having taken up, they were using helps, undergirding the ship, and fearing lest they may fall on the quicksand, having let down the mast -- so were borne on. 18: And we, being exceedingly tempest-tossed, the succeeding [day] they were making a clearing, 19: and on the third [day] with our own hands the tackling of the ship we cast out, 20: and neither sun nor stars appearing for more days, and not a little tempest lying upon us, thenceforth all hope was taken away of our being saved. 21: And there having been long fasting, then Paul having stood in the midst of them, said, 'It behoved [you], indeed, O men -- having hearkened to me -- not to set sail from Crete, and to save this hurt and damage; 22: and now I exhort you to be of good cheer, for there shall be no loss of life among you -- but of the ship; 23: for there stood by me this night a messenger of God -- whose I am, and whom I serve -- 24: saying, Be not afraid Paul; before Caesar it behoveth thee to stand; and, lo, God hath granted to thee all those sailing with thee; 25: wherefore be of good cheer, men! for I believe God, that so it shall be, even as it hath been spoken to me, 26: and on a certain island it behoveth us to be cast.' 27: And when the fourteenth night came -- we being borne up and down in the Adria -- toward the middle of the night the sailors were supposing that some country drew nigh to them; 28: and having sounded they found twenty fathoms, and having gone a little farther, and again having sounded, they found fifteen fathoms, 29: and fearing lest on rough places we may fall, out of the stern having cast four anchors, they were wishing day to come. 30: And the sailors seeking to flee out of the ship, and having let down the boat to the sea, in pretence as [if] out of the foreship they are about to cast anchors, 31: Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, 'If these do not remain in the ship -- ye are not able to be saved;' 32: then the soldiers did cut off the ropes of the boat, and suffered it to fall off. 33: And till the day was about to be, Paul was calling upon all to partake of nourishment, saying, 'Fourteen days to-day, waiting, ye continue fasting, having taken nothing, 34: wherefore I call upon you to take nourishment, for this is for your safety, for of not one of you shall a hair from the head fall;' 35: and having said these things, and having taken bread, he gave thanks to God before all, and having broken [it], he began to eat; 36: and all having become of good cheer, themselves also took food, 37: (and we were -- all the souls in the ship -- two hundred, seventy and six), 38: and having eaten sufficient nourishment, they were lightening the ship, casting forth the wheat into the sea. 39: And when the day came, they were not discerning the land, but a certain creek were perceiving having a beach, into which they took counsel, if possible, to thrust forward the ship, 40: and the anchors having taken up, they were committing [it] to the sea, at the same time -- having loosed the bands of the rudders, and having hoisted up the mainsail to the wind -- they were making for the shore, 41: and having fallen into a place of two seas, they ran the ship aground, and the fore-part, indeed, having stuck fast, did remain immoveable, but the hinder-part was broken by the violence of the waves. 42: And the soldiers' counsel was that they should kill the prisoners, lest any one having swam out should escape, 43: but the centurion, wishing to save Paul, hindered them from the counsel, and did command those able to swim, having cast themselves out first -- to get unto the land, 44: and the rest, some indeed upon boards, and some upon certain things of the ship; and thus it came to pass that all came safe unto the land.
