21. But after long abstinence Paul stood in the midst and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened to me, and not have loosed from
Candia, neither have brought upon us this injury and loss. 22. And now I exhort you that ye be of good courage: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life, but only of the ship. 23. For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I worship. 24. And he said to me, Fear
not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, behold, God hath given thee all those which sail with thee. 25. Wherefore be of good courage, sirs: for I believe God that it shall be so, as it hath been told me. 26. But we must fall into a certain island. 27. And when the fourteenth night was come, as we sailed in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the mariners supposed that some
country appeared to them. 28. And when they had sounded, they found it twenty fathoms:
and when they were gone a little farther, they sounded again, and they found it fifteen fathoms. 29. And fearing lest they should have fallen into some rough places, having cast four anchors out of the stern, they wished for
day. 30. And when the mariners sought to fly out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under a color as if they
would have cast anchors out of the foreship, 31. Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, Unless these abide in the
ship, you cannot be saved. 32. Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and they suffered it to fall away.
