“And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.”
King James Version (KJV)
27:19 We cast out the tackling of the ship - Cutting away even those masts that were not absolutely necessary.
Ac 27:19 The third [day] we cast out . . . the tackling. On this, the third day of the storm, the Christians aided to cast off the tackling, the spars, etc. It is evident that the situation was dangerous.
