Acts 27


Act 27:1 When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, they proceeded to deliver Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan cohort named Julius.
Act 27:2 And embarking in an Adramyttian ship, which was about to sail to the regions along the coast of Asia, we put out to sea accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica.
Act 27:3 The next day we put in at Sidon; and Julius treated Paul with consideration and allowed him to go to his friends and receive care.
Act 27:4 From there we put out to sea and sailed under the shelter of Cyprus because the winds were contrary.
Act 27:5 When we had sailed through the sea along the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia.
Act 27:6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy, and he put us aboard it.
Act 27:7 When we had sailed slowly for a good many days, and with difficulty had arrived off Cnidus, since the wind did not permit us to go farther, we sailed under the shelter of Crete, off Salmone;
Act 27:8 and with difficulty sailing past it we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea.
Act 27:9 When considerable time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous, since even the fast was already over, Paul began to admonish them,
Act 27:10 and said to them," Men, I perceive that the voyage will certainly be with damage and great loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives."
Act 27:11 But the centurion was more persuaded by the pilot and the captain of the ship than by what was being said by Paul.
Act 27:12 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 Crete, facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there.
Act 27:13 When a moderate south wind came up, supposing that they had attained their purpose, they weighed anchor and began sailing along Crete, close inshore.
Act 27:14 But before very long there rushed down from the land a violent wind, called Euraquilo;
Act 27:15 and when the ship was caught in it and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and let ourselves be driven along.
Act 27:16 Running under the shelter of a small island called Clauda, we were scarcely able to get the ship's boat under control.
Act 27:17 After they had hoisted it up, they used supporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might run aground on the shallows of Syrtis, they let down the sea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along.
Act 27:18 The next day as we were being violently storm-tossed, they began to jettison the cargo;
Act 27:19 and on the third day they threw the ship's tackle overboard with their own hands.
Act 27:20 Since neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small storm was assailing us, from then on all hope of our being saved was gradually abandoned.
Act 27:21 When they had gone a long time without food, then Paul stood up in their midst and said," Men, you ought to have followed my advice and not to have set sail from Crete and incurred this damage and loss.
Act 27:22 Yet now I urge you to keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.
Act 27:23 For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me,
Act 27:24 saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you. '
Act 27:25 Therefore, keep up your courage, men, for I believe God that it will turn out exactly as I have been told.
Act 27:26 But we must run aground on a certain island."
Act 27:27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors began to surmise that they were approaching some land.
Act 27:28 They took soundings and found it to be twenty fathoms; and a little farther on they took another sounding and found it to be fifteen fathoms.
Act 27:29 Fearing that we might run aground somewhere on the rocks, they cast four anchors from the stern and wished for daybreak.
Act 27:30 But as the sailors were trying to escape from the ship and had let down the ship's boat into the sea, on the pretense of intending to lay out anchors from the bow,
Act 27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers," Unless these men remain in the ship, you yourselves cannot be saved."
Act 27:32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the ship's boat and let it fall away.
Act 27:33 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.
Act 27:34 Therefore I encourage you to take some food, for this is for your preservation, for not a hair from the head of any of you will perish."
Act 27:35 Having said this, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of all, and he broke it and began to eat.
Act 27:36 All of them were encouraged and they themselves also took food.
Act 27:37 All of us in the ship were two hundred and seventy-six persons.
Act 27:38 When they had eaten enough, they began to lighten the ship by throwing out the wheat into the sea.
Act 27:39 When day came, they could not recognize the land; but they did observe a bay with a beach, and they resolved to drive the ship onto it if they could.
Act 27:40 And casting off the 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.
Act 27:41 But striking a reef 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.
Act 27:42 The soldiers' plan was to kill the prisoners, so that none of them would swim away and escape;
Act 27:43 but the centurion, wanting to bring Paul safely through, kept them from their intention, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land,
Act 27:44 and the rest should follow, some on planks, and others on various things from the ship. And so it happened that they all were brought safely to land.

King James Version New American Standard Koine Greek
Act 27:1 And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band. Act 27:1 When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, they proceeded to deliver Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan cohort named Julius. Act 27:1 ὡς δὲ ἐκρίθη τοῦ ἀποπλεῖν ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν ἰταλίαν, παρεδίδουν τόν τε παῦλον καί τινας ἑτέρους δεσμώτας ἑκατοντάρχῃ ὀνόματι ἰουλίῳ σπείρης σεβαστῆς.
Act 27:2 And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia; one Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us. Act 27:2 And embarking in an Adramyttian ship, which was about to sail to the regions along the coast of Asia, we put out to sea accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica. Act 27:2 ἐπιβάντες δὲ πλοίῳ ἀδραμυττηνῶ μέλλοντι πλεῖν εἰς τοὺς κατὰ τὴν ἀσίαν τόπους ἀνήχθημεν, ὄντος σὺν ἡμῖν ἀριστάρχου μακεδόνος θεσσαλονικέως·
Act 27:3 And the next day we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously entreated Paul, and gave him liberty to go unto his friends to refresh himself. Act 27:3 The next day we put in at Sidon; and Julius treated Paul with consideration and allowed him to go to his friends and receive care. Act 27:3 τῇ τε ἑτέρᾳ κατήχθημεν εἰς σιδῶνα, φιλανθρώπως τε ὁ ἰούλιος τῶ παύλῳ χρησάμενος ἐπέτρεψεν πρὸς τοὺς φίλους πορευθέντι ἐπιμελείας τυχεῖν.
Act 27:4 And when we had launched from thence, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary. Act 27:4 From there we put out to sea and sailed under the shelter of Cyprus because the winds were contrary. Act 27:4 κἀκεῖθεν ἀναχθέντες ὑπεπλεύσαμεν τὴν κύπρον διὰ τὸ τοὺς ἀνέμους εἶναι ἐναντίους,
Act 27:5 And when we had sailed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia. Act 27:5 When we had sailed through the sea along the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. Act 27:5 τό τε πέλαγος τὸ κατὰ τὴν κιλικίαν καὶ παμφυλίαν διαπλεύσαντες κατήλθομεν εἰς μύρα τῆς λυκίας.
Act 27:6 And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us therein. Act 27:6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy, and he put us aboard it. Act 27:6 κἀκεῖ εὑρὼν ὁ ἑκατοντάρχης πλοῖον ἀλεξανδρῖνον πλέον εἰς τὴν ἰταλίαν ἐνεβίβασεν ἡμᾶς εἰς αὐτό.
Act 27:7 And when we had sailed slowly many days, and scarce were come over against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over against Salmone; Act 27:7 When we had sailed slowly for a good many days, and with difficulty had arrived off Cnidus, since the wind did not permit us to go farther, we sailed under the shelter of Crete, off Salmone; Act 27:7 ἐν ἱκαναῖς δὲ ἡμέραις βραδυπλοοῦντες καὶ μόλις γενόμενοι κατὰ τὴν κνίδον, μὴ προσεῶντος ἡμᾶς τοῦ ἀνέμου, ὑπεπλεύσαμεν τὴν κρήτην κατὰ σαλμώνην,
Act 27:8 And, hardly passing it, came unto a place which is called The fair havens; nigh whereunto was the city of Lasea. Act 27:8 and with difficulty sailing past it we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea. Act 27:8 μόλις τε παραλεγόμενοι αὐτὴν ἤλθομεν εἰς τόπον τινὰ καλούμενον καλοὺς λιμένας, ᾧ ἐγγὺς πόλις ἦν λασαία.
Act 27:9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them, Act 27:9 When considerable time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous, since even the fast was already over, Paul began to admonish them, Act 27:9 ἱκανοῦ δὲ χρόνου διαγενομένου καὶ ὄντος ἤδη ἐπισφαλοῦς τοῦ πλοὸς διὰ τὸ καὶ τὴν νηστείαν ἤδη παρεληλυθέναι, παρῄνει ὁ παῦλος
Act 27:10 And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives. Act 27:10 and said to them," Men, I perceive that the voyage will certainly be with damage and great loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives." Act 27:10 λέγων αὐτοῖς, ἄνδρες, θεωρῶ ὅτι μετὰ ὕβρεως καὶ πολλῆς ζημίας οὐ μόνον τοῦ φορτίου καὶ τοῦ πλοίου ἀλλὰ καὶ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν μέλλειν ἔσεσθαι τὸν πλοῦν.
Act 27:11 Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul. Act 27:11 But the centurion was more persuaded by the pilot and the captain of the ship than by what was being said by Paul. Act 27:11 ὁ δὲ ἑκατοντάρχης τῶ κυβερνήτῃ καὶ τῶ ναυκλήρῳ μᾶλλον ἐπείθετο ἢ τοῖς ὑπὸ παύλου λεγομένοις.
Act 27:12 And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west. Act 27:12 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 Crete, facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there. Act 27:12 ἀνευθέτου δὲ τοῦ λιμένος ὑπάρχοντος πρὸς παραχειμασίαν οἱ πλείονες ἔθεντο βουλὴν ἀναχθῆναι ἐκεῖθεν, εἴ πως δύναιντο καταντήσαντες εἰς φοίνικα παραχειμάσαι, λιμένα τῆς κρήτης βλέποντα κατὰ λίβα καὶ κατὰ χῶρον.
Act 27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete. Act 27:13 When a moderate south wind came up, supposing that they had attained their purpose, they weighed anchor and began sailing along Crete, close inshore. Act 27:13 ὑποπνεύσαντος δὲ νότου δόξαντες τῆς προθέσεως κεκρατηκέναι, ἄραντες ἆσσον παρελέγοντο τὴν κρήτην.
Act 27:14 But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon. Act 27:14 But before very long there rushed down from the land a violent wind, called Euraquilo; Act 27:14 μετ᾽ οὐ πολὺ δὲ ἔβαλεν κατ᾽ αὐτῆς ἄνεμος τυφωνικὸς ὁ καλούμενος εὐρακύλων·
Act 27:15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive. Act 27:15 and when the ship was caught in it and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and let ourselves be driven along. Act 27:15 συναρπασθέντος δὲ τοῦ πλοίου καὶ μὴ δυναμένου ἀντοφθαλμεῖν τῶ ἀνέμῳ ἐπιδόντες ἐφερόμεθα.
Act 27:16 And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat: Act 27:16 Running under the shelter of a small island called Clauda, we were scarcely able to get the ship's boat under control. Act 27:16 νησίον δέ τι ὑποδραμόντες καλούμενον καῦδα ἰσχύσαμεν μόλις περικρατεῖς γενέσθαι τῆς σκάφης,
Act 27:17 Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven. Act 27:17 After they had hoisted it up, they used supporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might run aground on the shallows of Syrtis, they let down the sea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along. Act 27:17 ἣν ἄραντες βοηθείαις ἐχρῶντο ὑποζωννύντες τὸ πλοῖον· φοβούμενοί τε μὴ εἰς τὴν σύρτιν ἐκπέσωσιν, χαλάσαντες τὸ σκεῦος, οὕτως ἐφέροντο.
Act 27:18 And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship; Act 27:18 The next day as we were being violently storm-tossed, they began to jettison the cargo; Act 27:18 σφοδρῶς δὲ χειμαζομένων ἡμῶν τῇ ἑξῆς ἐκβολὴν ἐποιοῦντο,
Act 27:19 And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship. Act 27:19 and on the third day they threw the ship's tackle overboard with their own hands. Act 27:19 καὶ τῇ τρίτῃ αὐτόχειρες τὴν σκευὴν τοῦ πλοίου ἔρριψαν.
Act 27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away. Act 27:20 Since neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small storm was assailing us, from then on all hope of our being saved was gradually abandoned. Act 27:20 μήτε δὲ ἡλίου μήτε ἄστρων ἐπιφαινόντων ἐπὶ πλείονας ἡμέρας, χειμῶνός τε οὐκ ὀλίγου ἐπικειμένου, λοιπὸν περιῃρεῖτο ἐλπὶς πᾶσα τοῦ σῴζεσθαι ἡμᾶς.
Act 27:21 But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. Act 27:21 When they had gone a long time without food, then Paul stood up in their midst and said," Men, you ought to have followed my advice and not to have set sail from Crete and incurred this damage and loss. Act 27:21 πολλῆς τε ἀσιτίας ὑπαρχούσης τότε σταθεὶς ὁ παῦλος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν εἶπεν, ἔδει μέν, ὦ ἄνδρες, πειθαρχήσαντάς μοι μὴ ἀνάγεσθαι ἀπὸ τῆς κρήτης κερδῆσαί τε τὴν ὕβριν ταύτην καὶ τὴν ζημίαν.
Act 27:22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship. Act 27:22 Yet now I urge you to keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. Act 27:22 καὶ τὰ νῦν παραινῶ ὑμᾶς εὐθυμεῖν, ἀποβολὴ γὰρ ψυχῆς οὐδεμία ἔσται ἐξ ὑμῶν πλὴν τοῦ πλοίου·
Act 27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Act 27:23 For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me, Act 27:23 παρέστη γάρ μοι ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τοῦ θεοῦ οὖ εἰμι [ἐγώ], ᾧ καὶ λατρεύω, ἄγγελος
Act 27:24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Act 27:24 saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you. ' Act 27:24 λέγων, μὴ φοβοῦ, παῦλε· καίσαρί σε δεῖ παραστῆναι, καὶ ἰδοὺ κεχάρισταί σοι ὁ θεὸς πάντας τοὺς πλέοντας μετὰ σοῦ.
Act 27:25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. Act 27:25 Therefore, keep up your courage, men, for I believe God that it will turn out exactly as I have been told. Act 27:25 διὸ εὐθυμεῖτε, ἄνδρες· πιστεύω γὰρ τῶ θεῶ ὅτι οὕτως ἔσται καθ᾽ ὃν τρόπον λελάληταί μοι.
Act 27:26 Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island. Act 27:26 But we must run aground on a certain island." Act 27:26 εἰς νῆσον δέ τινα δεῖ ἡμᾶς ἐκπεσεῖν.
Act 27:27 But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country; Act 27:27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors began to surmise that they were approaching some land. Act 27:27 ὡς δὲ τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτη νὺξ ἐγένετο διαφερομένων ἡμῶν ἐν τῶ ἀδρίᾳ, κατὰ μέσον τῆς νυκτὸς ὑπενόουν οἱ ναῦται προσάγειν τινὰ αὐτοῖς χώραν.
Act 27:28 And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms. Act 27:28 They took soundings and found it to be twenty fathoms; and a little farther on they took another sounding and found it to be fifteen fathoms. Act 27:28 καὶ βολίσαντες εὖρον ὀργυιὰς εἴκοσι, βραχὺ δὲ διαστήσαντες καὶ πάλιν βολίσαντες εὖρον ὀργυιὰς δεκαπέντε·
Act 27:29 Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day. Act 27:29 Fearing that we might run aground somewhere on the rocks, they cast four anchors from the stern and wished for daybreak. Act 27:29 φοβούμενοί τε μή που κατὰ τραχεῖς τόπους ἐκπέσωμεν, ἐκ πρύμνης ῥίψαντες ἀγκύρας τέσσαρας ηὔχοντο ἡμέραν γενέσθαι.
Act 27:30 And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship, Act 27:30 But as the sailors were trying to escape from the ship and had let down the ship's boat into the sea, on the pretense of intending to lay out anchors from the bow, Act 27:30 τῶν δὲ ναυτῶν ζητούντων φυγεῖν ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου καὶ χαλασάντων τὴν σκάφην εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν προφάσει ὡς ἐκ πρῴρης ἀγκύρας μελλόντων ἐκτείνειν,
Act 27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved. Act 27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers," Unless these men remain in the ship, you yourselves cannot be saved." Act 27:31 εἶπεν ὁ παῦλος τῶ ἑκατοντάρχῃ καὶ τοῖς στρατιώταις, ἐὰν μὴ οὖτοι μείνωσιν ἐν τῶ πλοίῳ, ὑμεῖς σωθῆναι οὐ δύνασθε.
Act 27:32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off. Act 27:32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the ship's boat and let it fall away. Act 27:32 τότε ἀπέκοψαν οἱ στρατιῶται τὰ σχοινία τῆς σκάφης καὶ εἴασαν αὐτὴν ἐκπεσεῖν.
Act 27:33 And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing. Act 27:33 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. Act 27:33 ἄχρι δὲ οὖ ἡμέρα ἤμελλεν γίνεσθαι παρεκάλει ὁ παῦλος ἅπαντας μεταλαβεῖν τροφῆς λέγων, τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτην σήμερον ἡμέραν προσδοκῶντες ἄσιτοι διατελεῖτε, μηθὲν προσλαβόμενοι·
Act 27 34 Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you. Act 27:34 Therefore I encourage you to take some food, for this is for your preservation, for not a hair from the head of any of you will perish." Act 27:34 διὸ παρακαλῶ ὑμᾶς μεταλαβεῖν τροφῆς, τοῦτο γὰρ πρὸς τῆς ὑμετέρας σωτηρίας ὑπάρχει· οὐδενὸς γὰρ ὑμῶν θρὶξ ἀπὸ τῆς κεφαλῆς ἀπολεῖται.
Act 27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat. Act 27:35 Having said this, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of all, and he broke it and began to eat. Act 27:35 εἴπας δὲ ταῦτα καὶ λαβὼν ἄρτον εὐχαρίστησεν τῶ θεῶ ἐνώπιον πάντων καὶ κλάσας ἤρξατο ἐσθίειν.
Act 27:36 Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat. Act 27:36 All of them were encouraged and they themselves also took food. Act 27:36 εὔθυμοι δὲ γενόμενοι πάντες καὶ αὐτοὶ προσελάβοντο τροφῆς.
Act 27:37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls. Act 27:37 All of us in the ship were two hundred and seventy-six persons. Act 27:37 ἤμεθα δὲ αἱ πᾶσαι ψυχαὶ ἐν τῶ πλοίῳ διακόσιαι ἑβδομήκοντα ἕξ.
Act 27:38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat into the sea. Act 27:38 When they had eaten enough, they began to lighten the ship by throwing out the wheat into the sea. Act 27:38 κορεσθέντες δὲ τροφῆς ἐκούφιζον τὸ πλοῖον ἐκβαλλόμενοι τὸν σῖτον εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν.
Act 27:39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship. Act 27:39 When day came, they could not recognize the land; but they did observe a bay with a beach, and they resolved to drive the ship onto it if they could. Act 27:39 ὅτε δὲ ἡμέρα ἐγένετο, τὴν γῆν οὐκ ἐπεγίνωσκον, κόλπον δέ τινα κατενόουν ἔχοντα αἰγιαλὸν εἰς ὃν ἐβουλεύοντο εἰ δύναιντο ἐξῶσαι τὸ πλοῖον.
Act 27:40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore. Act 27:40 And casting off the 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. Act 27:40 καὶ τὰς ἀγκύρας περιελόντες εἴων εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν, ἅμα ἀνέντες τὰς ζευκτηρίας τῶν πηδαλίων, καὶ ἐπάραντες τὸν ἀρτέμωνα τῇ πνεούσῃ κατεῖχον εἰς τὸν αἰγιαλόν.
Act 27:41 And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves. Act 27:41 But striking a reef 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. Act 27:41 περιπεσόντες δὲ εἰς τόπον διθάλασσον ἐπέκειλαν τὴν ναῦν, καὶ ἡ μὲν πρῶρα ἐρείσασα ἔμεινεν ἀσάλευτος, ἡ δὲ πρύμνα ἐλύετο ὑπὸ τῆς βίας [τῶν κυμάτων].
Act 27:42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape. Act 27:42 The soldiers' plan was to kill the prisoners, so that none of them would swim away and escape; Act 27:42 τῶν δὲ στρατιωτῶν βουλὴ ἐγένετο ἵνα τοὺς δεσμώτας ἀποκτείνωσιν, μή τις ἐκκολυμβήσας διαφύγῃ·
Act 27:43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land: Act 27:43 but the centurion, wanting to bring Paul safely through, kept them from their intention, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land, Act 27:43 ὁ δὲ ἑκατοντάρχης βουλόμενος διασῶσαι τὸν παῦλον ἐκώλυσεν αὐτοὺς τοῦ βουλήματος, ἐκέλευσέν τε τοὺς δυναμένους κολυμβᾶν ἀπορίψαντας πρώτους ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐξιέναι,
Act 27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land. Act 27:44 and the rest should follow, some on planks, and others on various things from the ship. And so it happened that they all were brought safely to land. Act 27:44 καὶ τοὺς λοιποὺς οὓς μὲν ἐπὶ σανίσιν οὓς δὲ ἐπί τινων τῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ πλοίου· καὶ οὕτως ἐγένετο πάντας διασωθῆναι ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν.
