add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 But 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

41 And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
