Acts 27:  20 - 27


 20And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small

     tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.


 21But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said,

     Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete,

      and to have gained this harm and loss.


 22And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss

      of any man's life among you, but of the ship.


 23For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,


 24Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo,

      God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.


 25Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.


 26Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.
