Paul is shipped for Rome. His voyage and shipwreck.
1 And when it was determined that he should sail into Italy, and that Paul, with the other prisoners, should be delivered to a centurion, named Julius, of the band Augusta,
Ut autem judicatum est navigare eum in Italiam, et tradi Paulum cum reliquis custodiis centurioni nomine Julio cohortis Augustae,
2 Going on board a ship of Adrumetum, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia, Aristarchus, the Macedonian of Thessalonica, continuing with us.
ascendentes navem Adrumetinam, incipientes navigare circa Asiae loca, sustulimus, perseverante nobiscum Aristarcho Macedone Thessalonicensi.
3 And the day following we came to Sidon. And Julius treating Paul courteously, permitted him to go to his friends, and to take care of himself.
Sequenti autem die devenimus Sidonem. Humane autem tractans Julius Paulum, permisit ad amicos ire, et curam sui agere.
4 And when we had launched from thence, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.
Et inde cum sustulissemus, subnavigavimus Cyprum, propterea quod essent venti contrarii.
5 And sailing over the sea of Cilicia, and Pamphylia, we came to Lystra, which is in Lycia:
Et pelagus Ciliciae et Pamphyliae navigantes, venimus Lystram, quae est Lyciae :
6 And there the centurion finding a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy, removed us into it.
et ibi inveniens centurio navem Alexandrinam navigantem in Italiam, transposuit nos in eam.
7 And when for many days we had sailed slowly, and were scarce come over against Gnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed near Crete by Salmone:
Et cum multis diebus tarde navigaremus, et vix devenissemus contra Gnidum, prohibente nos vento, adnavigavimus Cretae juxta Salmonem :
8 And with much ado sailing by it, we came into a certain place, which is called Good-havens, nigh to which was the city of Thalassa.
et vix juxta navigantes, venimus in locum quemdam qui vocatur Boniportus, cui juxta erat civitas Thalassa.
9 And when much time was spent, and when sailing now was dangerous, because the fast was now past, Paul comforted them,
Multo autem tempore peracto, et cum jam non esset tuta navigatio, eo quod et jejunium jam praeteriisset, consolabatur eos Paulus,
10 Saying to them: Ye men, I see that the voyage beginneth to be with injury and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives.
dicens eis : Viri, video quoniam cum injuria et multo damno non solum oneris, et navis, sed etiam animarum nostrarum incipit esse navigatio.
11 But the centurion believed the pilot and the master of the ship, more than those things which were said by Paul.
Centurio autem gubernatori et nauclero magis credebat, quam his quae a Paulo dicebantur.
12 And whereas it was not a commodious haven to winter in, the greatest part gave counsel to sail thence, if by any means they might reach Phenice to winter there, which is a haven of Crete, looking towards the southwest and northwest.
Et cum aptus portus non esset ad hiemandum, plurimi statuerunt consilium navigare inde, si quomodo possent, devenientes Phoenicen, hiemare, portum Cretae respicientem ad Africum et ad Corum.
13 And the south wind gently blowing, thinking that they had obtained their purpose, when they had loosed from Asson, they sailed close by Crete.
Aspirante autem austro, aestimantes propositum se tenere, cum sustulissent de Asson, legebant Cretam.
14 But not long after, there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroaquilo.
Non post multum autem misit se contra ipsam ventus typhonicus, qui vocatur Euroaquilo.
15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up against the wind, giving up the ship to the winds, we were driven.
Cumque arrepta esset navis, et non posset conari in ventum, data nave flatibus, ferebamur.
16 And running under a certain island, that is called Cauda, we had much work to come by the boat.
In insulam autem quamdam decurrentes, quae vocatur Cauda, potuimus vix obtinere scapham.
17 Which being taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship, and fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, they let down the sail yard, and so were driven.
Qua sublata, adjutoriis utebantur, accingentes navem, timentes ne in Syrtim inciderent, summisso vase sic ferebantur.
18 And we being mightily tossed with the tempest, the next day they lightened the ship.
Valida autem nobis tempestate jactatis, sequenti die jactum fecerunt :
19 And the third day they cast out with their own hands the tackling of the ship.
et tertia die suis manibus armamenta navis projecerunt.
20 And when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small storm lay on us, all hope of our being saved was now taken away.
Neque autem sole, neque sideribus apparentibus per plures dies, et tempestate non exigua imminente, jam ablata erat spes omnis salutis nostrae.
21 And after they had fasted a long time, Paul standing forth in the midst of them, said: You should indeed, O ye men, have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and have gained this harm and loss.
Et cum multa jejunatio fuisset, tunc stans Paulus in medio eorum, dixit : Oportebat quidem, o viri, audito me, non tollere a Creta, lucrique facere injuriam hanc et jacturam.
22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer. For there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but only of the ship.
Et nunc suadeo vobis bono animo esse : amissio enim nullius animae erit ex vobis, praeterquam navis.
23 For an angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, stood by me this night,
Astitit enim mihi hac nocte angelus Dei, cujus sum ego, et cui deservio,
24 Saying: Fear not, Paul, thou must be brought before Caesar; and behold, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
dicens : Ne timeas Paule, Caesari te oportet assistere : et ecce donavit tibi Deus omnes qui navigant tecum.
25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer; for I believe God that it shall so be, as it hath been told me.
Propter quod bono animo estote viri : credo enim Deo, quia sic erit, quemadmodum dictum est mihi.
26 And we must come unto a certain island.
In insulam autem quamdam oportet nos devenire.
27 But after the fourteenth night was come, as we were sailing in Adria, about midnight, the shipmen deemed that they discovered some country.
Sed posteaquam quartadecima nox supervenit, navigantibus nobis in Adria circa mediam noctem, suspicabantur nautae apparere sibi aliquam regionem.
28 Who also sounding, found twenty fathoms; and going on a little further, they found fifteen fathoms.
Qui et summittentes bolidem, invenerunt passus viginti : et pusillum inde separati, invenerunt passus quindecim.
29 Then fearing lest we should fall upon rough places, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.
Timentes autem ne in aspera loca incideremus, de puppi mittentes anchoras quatuor, optabant diem fieri.
30 But as the shipmen sought to fly out of the ship, having let down the boat into the sea, under colour, as though they would have cast anchors out of the forepart of the ship,
Nautis vero quaerentibus fugere de navi, cum misissent scapham in mare, sub obtentu quasi inciperent a prora anchoras extendere,
31 Paul said to the centurion, and to the soldiers: Except these stay in the ship, you cannot be saved.
dixit Paulus centurioni et militibus : Nisi hi in navi manserint, vos salvi fieri non potestis.
32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.
Tunc absciderunt milites funes scaphae, et passi sunt eam excidere.
33 And when it began to be light, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying: This day is the fourteenth day that you have waited, and continued fasting, taking nothing.
Et cum lux inciperet fieri, rogabat Paulus omnes sumere cibum, dicens : Quartadecima die hodie exspectantes jejuni permanetis, nihil accipientes.
34 Wherefore I pray you to take some meat for your health's sake; for there shall not an hair of the head of any of you perish.
Propter quod rogo vos accipere cibum pro salute vestra : quia nullius vestrum capillus de capite peribit.
35 And when he had said these things, taking bread, he gave thanks to God in the sight of them all; and when he had broken it, he began to eat.
Et cum haec dixisset, sumens panem, gratias egit Deo in conspectu omnium : et cum fregisset, coepit manducare.
36 Then were they all of better cheer, and they also took some meat.
Animaequiores autem facti omnes, et ipsi sumpserunt cibum.
37 And we were in all in the ship, two hundred threescore and sixteen souls.
Eramus vero universae animae in navi ducentae septuaginta sex.
38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, casting the wheat into the sea.
Et satiati cibo alleviabant navem, jactantes triticum in mare.
39 And when it was day, they knew not the land; but they discovered a certain creek that had a shore, into which they minded, if they could, to thrust in the ship.
Cum autem dies factus esset, terram non agnoscebant : sinum vero quemdam considerabant habentem littus, in quem cogitabant si possent ejicere navem.
40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, loosing withal the rudder bands; and hoisting up the mainsail to the wind, they made towards shore.
Et cum anchoras sustulissent, committebant se mari, simul laxantes juncturas gubernaculorum : et levato artemone secundum aurae flatum, tendebant ad littus.
41 And when we were fallen into a place where two seas met, they run the ship aground; and the forepart indeed, sticking fast, remained unmoveable: but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the sea.
Et cum incidissemus in locum dithalassum, impegerunt navem : et prora quidem fixa manebat immobilis, puppis vero solvebatur a vi maris.
42 And the soldiers' counsel was, that they should kill the prisoners, lest any of them, swimming out, should escape.
Militum autem consilium fuit ut custodias occiderent : nequis cum enatasset, effugeret.
43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, forbade it to be done; and he commanded that they who could swim, should cast themselves first into the sea, and save themselves, and get to land.
Centurio autem volens servare Paulum, prohibuit fieri : jussitque eos, qui possent natare, emittere se primos, et evadere, et ad terram exire :
44 And the rest, some they carried on boards, and some on those things that belonged to the ship. And so it came to pass, that every soul got safe to land.
et ceteros alios in tabulis ferebant : quosdam super ea quae de navi erant. Et sic factum est, ut omnes animae evaderent ad terram.
