Bible: Acts 27:9-13
Caught in a Violent Storm
27:9 Since considerable time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous 1 because the fast 2 was already over, 3 Paul advised them, 4 27:10 “Men, I can see the voyage is going to end 5 in disaster 6 and great loss not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives.” 7 27:11 But the centurion 8 was more convinced 9 by the captain 10 and the ship’s owner than by what Paul said. 11 27:12 Because the harbor was not suitable to spend the winter in, the majority decided 12 to put out to sea 13 from there. They hoped that 14 somehow they could reach 15 Phoenix, 16 a harbor of Crete facing 17 southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there. 27:13 When a gentle south wind sprang up, they thought 18 they could carry out 19 their purpose, so they weighed anchor 20 and sailed close along the coast 21 of Crete.
