“Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.”
King James Version (KJV)
27:11 The centurion regarded the master - And indeed it is a general rule, believe an artificer in his own art. Yet when there is the greatest need, a real Christian will often advise even better than him.
Ac 27:11 The centurion believed, etc. The master, or captain, and the owner, were both aboard, and it was but natural that their wishes would prevail with the centurion. The chief argument for proceeding was that Fair Havens was not a good harbor, and they hoped to reach a better one.
