Paul Is Sent to Rome
1 When° it was decided° that awe bwould sail° for cItaly°, they proceeded to deliver° Paul° and some° other° prisoners° to a centurion° of the Augustan° Idcohort° named° Julius°. 2 And embarking° in an Adramyttian° ship°, which was about° to sail° to the regions° along° the coast° of IaAsia°, we put° out to sea° accompanied°° by bAristarchus°, a cMacedonian° of dThessalonica°. 3 The next° day we put° in at aSidon°; and Julius° btreated° Paul° with consideration° and callowed° him to go° to his friends° and receive° care°. 4 From there° we put° out to sea° and sailed° under° the shelter° of aCyprus° because° bthe winds° were contrary°. 5 When we had sailed° through° the sea° along° the coast° of aCilicia° and bPamphylia°, we landed° at Myra° in Lycia°. 6 There° the centurion° found° an aAlexandrian° ship° sailing° for bItaly°, and he put° us aboard° it. 7 When we had sailed° slowly° for a good° many° days°, and with difficulty° had arrived° off° Cnidus°, asince the wind° did not permit° us [to go] farther°, we sailed° under° the shelter° of bCrete°, off° Salmone°; 8 and with difficulty° asailing° past° it we came° to a place° called° Fair° Havens°, near° which° was the city° of Lasea°.

Paul shipping toward Rome,

assured of their safety,
22 Andº nowº I exhortºª youº to be of good cheer:ºª forº there shall beºª noº lossº of [any man's] lifeº amongº you,º butº of the² ship.º 23 Forº there stood byºª meº thisº nightº the angelº of God,º whoseº I am,ºª andº whomº I serve,ºª 24 Saying,ºª Fearºªª not,º Paul;º thouº mustºª be brought beforeºª Caesar:º and,º lo,ºª Godº hath givenºª theeº allº them that sailºª withº thee.º 25 Wherefore,º sirs,º be of good cheer:ºª forº I believeºª God,º thatº itº shall beºª even¹¹ asº²² it was toldºª me.º 26 Howbeitº weº mustºª be castºª uponº a certainº island.º 27 Butº whenº the fourteenthº nightº was come,ºª as weº were driven up and downºª inº Adria,º aboutº midnightºº the² shipmenº deemedºª that they¹² drew nearºª to someº country;º 28 Andº sounded,ºª and foundºª [it] twentyº fathoms:º andº when they had gone¹ª a little further,º² they soundedºª again,º andº foundºª [it] fifteenº fathoms.º 29 Thenº fearingºª lestº¹ we should have fallenºªª uponº rocks,ºº they castºª fourº anchorsº out² of¹ the stern,º and wishedºª¹ª for the day.º² 30 Andº as the² shipmenº were aboutºª to fleeºª out ofº the² ship,º whenº they had let downºª the² boatº intoº the² sea,º under colourº as thoughº they wouldºª have castºª anchorsº out ofº the foreship,º 31 Paulº saidºª to the² centurionº andº to the² soldiers,º Exceptº theseº abideºª inº the² ship,º yeº cannotººª be saved.ºª 32 Thenº the² soldiersº cut offºª the² ropesº of the² boat,º andº letºª herº fall off.ºª 33 Andº whileºº the dayº was² coming¹ª on,¹ª² Paulº besoughtºª [them] allº to takeºª meat,º saying,ºª This dayº is the fourteenthº dayº that ye have tarried¹ª² and continuedºª fasting,º having taken¹ª² nothing.º 34 Whereforeº I prayºª youº to takeºª [some] meat:º forº thisº isºª forº yourº health:º forº there shall¹ª not¹ª an hairº fallºª fromº the² headº of anyº of you.º 35 Andº when he had thusº spoken,ºª¹ he² tookºª bread,º and gave thanksºª to Godº in presenceº of them all:º andº when he had brokenºª [it], he beganºª to eat.ºª 36 Thenº wereºª they¹¹ª allº of good cheer,º and they¹ª² alsoº tookºª [some] meat.º 37 Andº we wereºª in allº inº the² shipº two hundred¹ threescore¹ and sixteenº²² souls.º 38 Andº when they had eaten¹ enough,ºª² they lightenedºª the² ship,º and cast outºª the² wheatº intoº the² sea.º 39 Andº whenº it wasºª day,º they knewºª notº the² land:º butº they discoveredºª a certainº creekº withºª a shore,º intoº the whichº they were minded,ºª ifº it were possible,ºª to thrust inºª the² ship.º 40 Andº when they had taken up¹ª² the² anchors,º they committedºª [themselves] untoº the² sea,º andº loosedºª the² rudderº bands,º andº hoised upºª the² mainsailº to the² wind,ºª and madeºª towardº shore.º
