Bible: Acts 27:1-8

Paul and Company Sail for Rome

27:1 When it was decided we 1  would sail to Italy, 2  they handed over Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion 3  of the Augustan Cohort 4  named Julius. 27:2 We went on board 5  a ship from Adramyttium 6  that was about to sail to various ports 7  along the coast of the province of Asia 8  and put out to sea, 9  accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian 10  from Thessalonica. 11  27:3 The next day we put in 12  at Sidon, 13  and Julius, treating Paul kindly, 14  allowed him to go to his friends so they could provide him with what he needed. 15  27:4 From there we put out to sea 16  and sailed under the lee 17  of Cyprus because the winds were against us. 27:5 After we had sailed across the open sea 18  off Cilicia and Pamphylia, 19  we put in 20  at Myra 21  in Lycia. 22  27:6 There the centurion 23  found 24  a ship from Alexandria 25  sailing for Italy, and he put us aboard it. 27:7 We sailed slowly 26  for many days and arrived with difficulty off Cnidus. 27  Because the wind prevented us from going any farther, 28  we sailed under the lee 29  of Crete off Salmone. 30  27:8 With difficulty we sailed along the coast 31  of Crete 32  and came to a place called Fair Havens that was near the town of Lasea. 33
