Bible Commentary for Acts 27:35

Wesley's Notes for Acts 27:35


27:33 Ye continue fasting, having taken nothing - No regular meal, through a deep sense of their extreme danger. Let us not wonder then, if men who have a deep sense of their extreme danger of everlasting death, for a time forget even to eat their bread, or to attend to their worldly affairs. Much less let us censure that as madness, which may be the beginning of true wisdom.

27:34 This is for your preservation - That ye may be the better able to swim to shore.

27:36 Then they were all encouraged - By his example, as well as words.
