New Testament

 

   

27:1And when it was determined that we should sail to Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to one named Julius, a centurion of the Augustan Regiment.
27:2So, entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we launched, meaning to sail along the coasts of Asia. One Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, was with us.
27:3And the next day we landed at Sidon. And Julius treated Paul kindly and gave him liberty to go to his friends and refresh himself.
27:4When we had launched from there, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.
27:5And when we had sailed over the sea which is off Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia.
27:6And there the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing to Italy, and he put us on board.
27:7And when we had sailed slowly many days, and arrived with difficulty off Cnidus, the wind not permitting us to proceed, we sailed under Crete off Salmone.
27:8And passing it with difficulty, we came to a place called The Fair Havens; nearby was the city of Lasea.
27:9Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them,
27:10and said to them, "Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives."
27:11Nevertheless the centurion believed the helmsman and the owner of the ship than those things which were spoken by Paul.
27:12And because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised to set sail from there also, if by any means they might reach Phoenix, which is a harbor of Crete opening toward the southwest and northwest, and winter there.
27:13And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, leaving there, they sailed close by Crete.
27:14But not long after, a tempestuous wind arose against it, called Euroclydon.
27:15So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive.
27:16And running underneath an island which is called Clauda, we secured the smaller boat with difficulty.
27:17Which, when they had taken it on board, they used cables to undergird the ship; and fearing lest they should run aground on the sandbanks, they struck sail and so were driven.
27:18And because we were exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship.
27:19And on the third day we threw the ship's tackle overboard with our own hands.
27:20Now when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest beat on us, all hope that we would be saved was finally gone.
27:21But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them and said, "Men, you should have listened to me, and not have untied from Crete and incurred this disaster and loss.
27:22And now I urge you to be optimistic, because there will be no loss of any man's life among you, but only of the ship.
27:23Because, there stood by me this night the angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve,
27:24saying, 'Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.'
27:25Therefore men, take heart, because I believe God that it will be just as it was told me.
27:26However, we must run aground on a certain island."
27:27Now when the fourteenth night had come, as we were driven up and down in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors sensed that they were drawing near some land.
27:28And they took soundings and found it to be twenty fathoms; and when they had gone a little farther, they took soundings again and found it to be fifteen fathoms.
27:29Then, fearing lest we should run aground on the rocks, they dropped four anchors from the stern, and wished for day to come.
27:30And as the sailors were seeking to escape from the ship, when they had let down the small boat into the sea, pretending to be about to cast out anchors from the front of the ship,
27:31Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, "Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot all be saved."
27:32Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the small boat and let it fall off.
27:33And as day was about to dawn, Paul implored them all to take food, saying, "Today is the fourteenth day you have waited and continued fasting, and eaten nothing.
27:34Therefore I urge you to take some food, because this is for your survival, because not a hair will fall from the head of any of you."
27:35And when he had said these things, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of them all; and when he had broken it he began to eat.
27:36Then they were all encouraged, and they also took some food.
27:37And in all we were two hundred and seventy six persons on the ship.
27:38So when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship and threw out the wheat into the sea.
27:39And when it was day, they did not recognize the land; but they observed a bay with a beach, onto which they planned to drive the ship if possible.
27:40And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, untied the rudder ropes, hoisted the mainsail to the wind, and made for shore.
27:41And striking a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the front stuck fast and remained immovable, but the back part was being broken up by the violence of the waves.
27:42And the soldiers' instructions were to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim away and escape.
27:43But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should throw themselves first into the sea and get to land,
27:44and the rest, some on boards and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land.

King James Bible 2016

Unlike most other modern versions, this Bible's text is based upon the same Hebrew Masoretic Text, and Greek Textus Receptus, of the King James Version of 1611.

In non Textus Receptus versions, the issue of having the best underlying manuscripts, is often overshadowed by the massive amount of omissions in the text. Because the KJV 2016 is not dealing with issues of omission and addition, the focus has been upon definition, and the KJV translators choices have been used as the benchmark.

One issue not often majored upon in the bible version debate is simply the way Greek words are defined. Many times, the NKJV leans upon the definition choices of modern versions as well as defaulting to Vines and Strong's definitions, which are almost always favorable to the Revised Version. In other words, one may have a correct text to translate from, but use erroneous modern version/modern dictionary definitions which change or distort the meaning of the words. Jay Green was accused of having a good TR bible but with "Alexandrian readings".

The KJV 2016 Edition rejects such erroneous modern definitions and restores the distinctness of historical KJV readings. The NKJV also tended to gravitate toward KJV marginal notes, which are in truth, rejected readings, and also toward Geneva Bible definitions, which the KJV had already cleared up.
