1 When it was determined that we should sail for Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners to a centurion named Julius, of the Augustan band.

1 ὡς δὲ ἐκρίθη τοῦ ἀποπλεῖν ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν ἰταλίαν, παρεδίδουν τόν τε παῦλον καί τινας ἑτέρους δεσμώτας ἑκατοντάρχῃ ὀνόματι ἰουλίῳ σπείρης σεβαστῆς.

2 Embarking in a ship of Adramyttium, which was about to sail to places on the coast of Asia, we put to sea; Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.

2 ἐπιβάντες δὲ πλοίῳ ἀδραμυττηνῶ μέλλοντι πλεῖν εἰς τοὺς κατὰ τὴν ἀσίαν τόπους ἀνήχθημεν, ὄντος σὺν ἡμῖν ἀριστάρχου μακεδόνος θεσσαλονικέως·

3 The next day, we touched at Sidon. Julius treated Paul kindly, and gave him permission to go to his friends and refresh himself.

3 τῇ τε ἑτέρᾳ κατήχθημεν εἰς σιδῶνα, φιλανθρώπως τε ὁ ἰούλιος τῶ παύλῳ χρησάμενος ἐπέτρεψεν πρὸς τοὺς φίλους πορευθέντι ἐπιμελείας τυχεῖν.

4 Putting to sea from there, we sailed under the lee of Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.

4 κἀκεῖθεν ἀναχθέντες ὑπεπλεύσαμεν τὴν κύπρον διὰ τὸ τοὺς ἀνέμους εἶναι ἐναντίους,

5 When we had sailed across the sea which is off Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia.

5 τό τε πέλαγος τὸ κατὰ τὴν κιλικίαν καὶ παμφυλίαν διαπλεύσαντες κατήλθομεν εἰς μύρα τῆς λυκίας.

6 There the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing for Italy, and he put us on board.

6 κἀκεῖ εὑρὼν ὁ ἑκατοντάρχης πλοῖον ἀλεξανδρῖνον πλέον εἰς τὴν ἰταλίαν ἐνεβίβασεν ἡμᾶς εἰς αὐτό.

7 When we had sailed slowly many days, and had come with difficulty opposite Cnidus, the wind not allowing us further, we sailed under the lee of Crete, opposite Salmone.

7 ἐν ἱκαναῖς δὲ ἡμέραις βραδυπλοοῦντες καὶ μόλις γενόμενοι κατὰ τὴν κνίδον, μὴ προσεῶντος ἡμᾶς τοῦ ἀνέμου, ὑπεπλεύσαμεν τὴν κρήτην κατὰ σαλμώνην,

8 With difficulty sailing along it we came to a certain place called Fair Havens, near the city of Lasea.

8 μόλις τε παραλεγόμενοι αὐτὴν ἤλθομεν εἰς τόπον τινὰ καλούμενον καλοὺς λιμένας, ᾧ ἐγγὺς πόλις ἦν λασαία.

9 When much time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous, because the Fast had now already gone by, Paul admonished them,

9 ἱκανοῦ δὲ χρόνου διαγενομένου καὶ ὄντος ἤδη ἐπισφαλοῦς τοῦ πλοὸς διὰ τὸ καὶ τὴν νηστείαν ἤδη παρεληλυθέναι, παρῄνει ὁ παῦλος

10 and said to them, "Sirs, I perceive that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives."

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.

11 But the centurion gave more heed to the master and to the owner of the ship than to those things which were spoken by Paul.

11 ὁ δὲ ἑκατοντάρχης τῶ κυβερνήτῃ καὶ τῶ ναυκλήρῳ μᾶλλον ἐπείθετο ἢ τοῖς ὑπὸ παύλου λεγομένοις.

12 Because the haven was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised going to sea from there, if by any means they could reach Phoenix, and winter there, which is a port of Crete, looking northeast and southeast.

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.

13 When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed along Crete, close to shore.

13 ὑποπνεύσαντος δὲ νότου δόξαντες τῆς προθέσεως κεκρατηκέναι, ἄραντες ἆσσον παρελέγοντο τὴν κρήτην.

14 But before long, a tempestuous wind beat down from shore, which is called Euroclydon.{Or, "a northeaster."}

14 μετ᾽ οὐ πολὺ δὲ ἔβαλεν κατ᾽ αὐτῆς ἄνεμος τυφωνικὸς ὁ καλούμενος εὐρακύλων·

15 When the ship was caught, and couldn't face the wind, we gave way to it, and were driven along.

15 συναρπασθέντος δὲ τοῦ πλοίου καὶ μὴ δυναμένου ἀντοφθαλμεῖν τῶ ἀνέμῳ ἐπιδόντες ἐφερόμεθα.

16 Running under the lee of a small island called Clauda, we were able, with difficulty, to secure the boat.

16 νησίον δέ τι ὑποδραμόντες καλούμενον καῦδα ἰσχύσαμεν μόλις περικρατεῖς γενέσθαι τῆς σκάφης,

17 After they had hoisted it up, they used cables to help reinforce the ship. Fearing that they would run aground on the Syrtis sand bars, they lowered the sea anchor, and so were driven along.

17 ἣν ἄραντες βοηθείαις ἐχρῶντο ὑποζωννύντες τὸ πλοῖον· φοβούμενοί τε μὴ εἰς τὴν σύρτιν ἐκπέσωσιν, χαλάσαντες τὸ σκεῦος, οὕτως ἐφέροντο.

18 As we labored exceedingly with the storm, the next day they began to throw things overboard.

18 σφοδρῶς δὲ χειμαζομένων ἡμῶν τῇ ἑξῆς ἐκβολὴν ἐποιοῦντο,

19 On the third day, they threw out the ship's tackle with their own hands.

19 καὶ τῇ τρίτῃ αὐτόχειρες τὴν σκευὴν τοῦ πλοίου ἔρριψαν.

20 When neither sun nor stars shone on us for many days, and no small tempest pressed on us, all hope that we would be saved was now taken away.

20 μήτε δὲ ἡλίου μήτε ἄστρων ἐπιφαινόντων ἐπὶ πλείονας ἡμέρας, χειμῶνός τε οὐκ ὀλίγου ἐπικειμένου, λοιπὸν περιῃρεῖτο ἐλπὶς πᾶσα τοῦ σῴζεσθαι ἡμᾶς.

21 When they had been long without food, Paul stood up in the middle of them, and said, "Sirs, you should have listened to me, and not have set sail from Crete, and have gotten this injury and loss.

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.

22 Now I exhort you to cheer up, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.

22 καὶ τὰ νῦν παραινῶ ὑμᾶς εὐθυμεῖν, ἀποβολὴ γὰρ ψυχῆς οὐδεμία ἔσται ἐξ ὑμῶν πλὴν τοῦ πλοίου·

23 For there stood by me this night an angel, belonging to the God whose I am and whom I serve,

23 παρέστη γάρ μοι ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τοῦ θεοῦ οὖ εἰμι [ἐγώ], ᾧ καὶ λατρεύω, ἄγγελος

24 saying, 'Don't be afraid, Paul. You must stand before Caesar. Behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.'

24 λέγων, μὴ φοβοῦ, παῦλε· καίσαρί σε δεῖ παραστῆναι, καὶ ἰδοὺ κεχάρισταί σοι ὁ θεὸς πάντας τοὺς πλέοντας μετὰ σοῦ.

25 Therefore, sirs, cheer up! For I believe God, that it will be just as it has been spoken to me.

25 διὸ εὐθυμεῖτε, ἄνδρες· πιστεύω γὰρ τῶ θεῶ ὅτι οὕτως ἔσται καθ᾽ ὃν τρόπον λελάληταί μοι.

26 But we must run aground on a certain island."

26 εἰς νῆσον δέ τινα δεῖ ἡμᾶς ἐκπεσεῖν.

27 But when the fourteenth night had come, as we were driven back and forth in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors surmised that they were drawing near to some land.

27 ὡς δὲ τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτη νὺξ ἐγένετο διαφερομένων ἡμῶν ἐν τῶ ἀδρίᾳ, κατὰ μέσον τῆς νυκτὸς ὑπενόουν οἱ ναῦται προσάγειν τινὰ αὐτοῖς χώραν.

28 They took soundings, and found twenty fathoms.{20 fathoms = 120 feet = 36.6 meters} After a little while, they took soundings again, and found fifteen fathoms.{15 fathoms = 90 feet = 27.4 meters}.

28 καὶ βολίσαντες εὖρον ὀργυιὰς εἴκοσι, βραχὺ δὲ διαστήσαντες καὶ πάλιν βολίσαντες εὖρον ὀργυιὰς δεκαπέντε·

29 Fearing that we would run aground on rocky ground, they let go four anchors from the stern, and wished for daylight.

29 φοβούμενοί τε μή που κατὰ τραχεῖς τόπους ἐκπέσωμεν, ἐκ πρύμνης ῥίψαντες ἀγκύρας τέσσαρας ηὔχοντο ἡμέραν γενέσθαι.

30 As the sailors were trying to flee out of the ship, and had lowered the boat into the sea, pretending that they would lay out anchors from the bow,

30 τῶν δὲ ναυτῶν ζητούντων φυγεῖν ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου καὶ χαλασάντων τὴν σκάφην εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν προφάσει ὡς ἐκ πρῴρης ἀγκύρας μελλόντων ἐκτείνειν,

31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, "Unless these stay in the ship, you can't be saved."

31 εἶπεν ὁ παῦλος τῶ ἑκατοντάρχῃ καὶ τοῖς στρατιώταις, ἐὰν μὴ οὖτοι μείνωσιν ἐν τῶ πλοίῳ, ὑμεῖς σωθῆναι οὐ δύνασθε.

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

32 τότε ἀπέκοψαν οἱ στρατιῶται τὰ σχοινία τῆς σκάφης καὶ εἴασαν αὐτὴν ἐκπεσεῖν.

33 While the day was coming on, Paul begged them all to take some food, saying, "This day is the fourteenth day that you wait and continue fasting, having taken nothing.

33 ἄχρι δὲ οὖ ἡμέρα ἤμελλεν γίνεσθαι παρεκάλει ὁ παῦλος ἅπαντας μεταλαβεῖν τροφῆς λέγων, τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτην σήμερον ἡμέραν προσδοκῶντες ἄσιτοι διατελεῖτε, μηθὲν προσλαβόμενοι·

34 Therefore I beg you to take some food, for this is for your safety; for not a hair will perish from any of your heads."

34 διὸ παρακαλῶ ὑμᾶς μεταλαβεῖν τροφῆς, τοῦτο γὰρ πρὸς τῆς ὑμετέρας σωτηρίας ὑπάρχει· οὐδενὸς γὰρ ὑμῶν θρὶξ ἀπὸ τῆς κεφαλῆς ἀπολεῖται.

35 When he had said this, and had taken bread, he gave thanks to God in the presence of all, and he broke it, and began to eat.

35 εἴπας δὲ ταῦτα καὶ λαβὼν ἄρτον εὐχαρίστησεν τῶ θεῶ ἐνώπιον πάντων καὶ κλάσας ἤρξατο ἐσθίειν.

36 Then they all cheered up, and they also took food.

36 εὔθυμοι δὲ γενόμενοι πάντες καὶ αὐτοὶ προσελάβοντο τροφῆς.

37 In all, we were two hundred seventy-six souls on the ship.

37 ἤμεθα δὲ αἱ πᾶσαι ψυχαὶ ἐν τῶ πλοίῳ διακόσιαι ἑβδομήκοντα ἕξ.

38 When they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, throwing out the wheat into the sea.

38 κορεσθέντες δὲ τροφῆς ἐκούφιζον τὸ πλοῖον ἐκβαλλόμενοι τὸν σῖτον εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν.

39 When it was day, they didn't recognize the land, but they noticed a certain bay with a beach, and they decided to try to drive the ship onto it.

39 ὅτε δὲ ἡμέρα ἐγένετο, τὴν γῆν οὐκ ἐπεγίνωσκον, κόλπον δέ τινα κατενόουν ἔχοντα αἰγιαλὸν εἰς ὃν ἐβουλεύοντο εἰ δύναιντο ἐξῶσαι τὸ πλοῖον.

40 Casting off the anchors, they left them in the sea, at the same time untying the rudder ropes. Hoisting up the foresail to the wind, they made for the beach.

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.

41 But coming to a place where two seas met, they ran the vessel aground. The bow struck and remained immovable, but the stern began to break up by the violence of the waves.

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].

42 The soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, so that none of them would swim out and escape.

42 τῶν δὲ στρατιωτῶν βουλὴ ἐγένετο ἵνα τοὺς δεσμώτας ἀποκτείνωσιν, μή τις ἐκκολυμβήσας διαφύγῃ·

43 But the centurion, desiring to save Paul, stopped them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should throw themselves overboard first to go toward the land;

43 ὁ δὲ ἑκατοντάρχης βουλόμενος διασῶσαι τὸν παῦλον ἐκώλυσεν αὐτοὺς τοῦ βουλήματος, ἐκέλευσέν τε τοὺς δυναμένους κολυμβᾶν ἀπορίψαντας πρώτους ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐξιέναι,

44 and the rest should follow, some on planks, and some on other things from the ship. So it happened that they all escaped safely to the land.

44 καὶ τοὺς λοιποὺς οὓς μὲν ἐπὶ σανίσιν οὓς δὲ ἐπί τινων τῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ πλοίου· καὶ οὕτως ἐγένετο πάντας διασωθῆναι ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν.
