CEBCommon English Bible
21For a long time no one had eaten. Paul stood up among them and said, "Men, you should have complied with my instructions not to sail from Crete. Then we would have avoided this damage and loss. 22Now I urge you to be encouraged. Not one of your lives will be lost, though we will lose the ship. 23Last night an angel from the God to whom I belong and whom I worship stood beside me. 24The angel said, ‘Don’t be afraid, Paul! You must stand before Caesar! Indeed, God has also graciously given you everyone sailing with you.’ 25Be encouraged, men! I have faith in God that it will be exactly as he told me. 26However, we must run aground on some island."
