Acts 27:24 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
27:24 God hath given - Paul had prayed for them. And God gave him their lives; perhaps their souls also. And the centurion, subserving the providence of God, gave to Paul the lives of the prisoners.

That night the Lord appeared to Paul and said, "Be encouraged, Paul. Just as you have been a witness to me here in Jerusalem, you must preach the Good News in Rome as well."
But Paul said to the commanding officer and the soldiers, "You will all die unless the sailors stay aboard."
The soldiers wanted to kill the prisoners to make sure they didn't swim ashore and escape.
One more thing--please prepare a guest room for me, for I am hoping that God will answer your prayers and let me return to you soon.
