|Acts 27: 39 - 44
||Now when it was day, they did not recognize the land, but they noticed a bay with a beach, on which they planned if possible to bring the ship ashore.
||So they cast off the anchors and left them in the sea, at the same time loosening the ropes that tied the rudders; then hoisting the foresail to the wind they made for the beach.
||But striking a shoal they ran the vessel aground; the bow stuck and remained immovable, and the stern was broken up by the surf.
||The soldiers' plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any should swim away and escape;
||but the centurion, wishing to save Paul, kept them from carrying out their purpose. He ordered those who could swim to throw themselves overboard first and make for the land,
||and the rest on planks or on pieces of the ship. And so it was that all escaped to land.
