Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 27:43 - 27:43

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

To save Paul (diasōsai ton Paulon). Effective first aorist active infinitive of diasōzō. And no wonder for the centurion knew now how much they all owed to Paul.

Stayed them from their purpose (ekōleusen autous tou boulēmatos.) Ablative case of boulēma after ekōleusen (from kōleuō, to hinder, common verb).

And get first to land (prōtous eis tēn gēn exienai). This classic verb exeimi occurs four times in Act 13:42; Act 17:15; Act 20:7; Act 27:32 and nowhere else in the N.T. It was a wise command.
