In the 14th night land was sighted. The sounding lead was thrown over: 15, 20 fathoms They were afraid of rocks and dropped 4 anchors astern The sailors left the ship and tried to escape. The lifeboat was let down. But Paul said: If they don't stay on the ship we cannot be saved. Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the boat, and let it fall off. Paul begged them all to take some food, saying it would help them be saved, Then he took a loaf of bread broke it and ate. Then they all cheered up, and they also took food. When they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, throwing out the wheat into the sea. When it was day, they noticed a certain bay with a beach they did not recognize. After casting off the anchor they hoisted the sail to the wind. They landed on a sandbank. The bow of the ship was stuck because it had run aground. But the soldiers wanted to kill the prisoners so that none would escape. But the centurion wanted to keep Paul and defended him, those who could swim should go on land the others try to get to land with planks and debris from the ship. That is what happened and everyone was saved.
