Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 27:21-26.


Acts 27:24

_ _ saying, Fear not, Paul: thou must be brought before Caesar and, lo, God hath given thee all ... that sail with thee — While the crew were toiling at the pumps, Paul was wrestling in prayer, not for himself only and the cause in which he was going a prisoner to Rome, but with true magnanimity of soul for all his shipmates; and God heard him, “giving him” (remarkable expression!) all that sailed with him. “When the cheerless day came he gathered the sailors (and passengers) around him on the deck of the laboring vessel, and raising his voice above the storm” [Howson], reported the divine communication he had received; adding with a noble simplicity, “for I believe God that it shall be even as it was told me,” and encouraging all on board to “be of good cheer” in the same confidence. What a contrast to this is the speech of Caesar in similar circumstances to his pilot, bidding him keep up his spirit because he carried Caesar and Caesar’s fortune! [Plutarch]. The Roman general knew no better name for the Divine Providence, by which he had been so often preserved, than Caesar’s fortune [Humphry]. From the explicit particulars — that the ship would be lost, but not one that sailed in it, and that they “must be cast on a certain island” — one would conclude a visional representation of a total wreck, a mass of human beings struggling with the angry elements, and one and all of those whose figures and countenances had daily met his eye on deck, standing on some unknown island shore. From what follows, it would seem that Paul from this time was regarded with a deference akin to awe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 27:21-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 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. How wonderfully does his providence reign in the most contingent things! And rather will many bad men be preserved with a few good, (so it frequently happens,) than one good man perish with many bad. So it was in this ship: so it is in the world. Thee — At such a time as this, there was not the same danger, which might otherwise have been, of St. Paul's seeming to speak out of vanity, what he really spoke out of necessity. All the souls — Not only all the prisoners, as Julius afterward did, Acts 27:43; ask for souls, they shall be given thee: yea, more than thou hopest for, that sail with thee — So that Paul, in the sight of God, was the master and pilot of the ship.
