Bible: Acts 27:14-20

27:14 Not long after this, a hurricane-force 1  wind called the northeaster 2  blew down from the island. 3  27:15 When the ship was caught in it 4  and could not head into 5  the wind, we gave way to it and were driven 6  along. 27:16 As we ran under the lee of 7  a small island called Cauda, 8  we were able with difficulty to get the ship’s boat 9  under control. 27:17 After the crew 10  had hoisted it aboard, 11  they used supports 12  to undergird the ship. Fearing they would run aground 13  on the Syrtis, 14  they lowered the sea anchor, 15  thus letting themselves be driven along. 27:18 The next day, because we were violently battered by the storm, 16  they began throwing the cargo overboard, 17  27:19 and on the third day they threw the ship’s gear 18  overboard with their own hands. 27:20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and a violent 19  storm continued to batter us, 20  we finally abandoned all hope of being saved. 21
