of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.
ACT 27:12 And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the
more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might
attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and
lieth toward the south west and north west.
ACT 27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had
obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete.
ACT 27:14 But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind,
ACT 27:15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the
wind, we let her drive.
