Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 27:14-15

_ _ a tempestuous — “typhonic”

_ _ wind — that is, like a typhon or tornado, causing a whirling of the clouds, owing to the meeting of opposite currents of air.

_ _ called Euroclydon — The true reading appears to be Euro-aquilo, or east-northeast, which answers all the effects here ascribed to it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 27:12-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

These furious winds are now called levanters, and blow in all directions from the northeast to the southeast.

Acts 27:14

But not long after there arose against (c) it a tempestuous wind, called (d) Euroclydon.

(c) By Crete, from whose shore our ship was driven by that means.

(d) Northeast wind.
