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.
