Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 27:33-37

_ _ while day was coming on — “until it should be day”; that is, in the interval between the cutting off of the boat and the approach of day, which all were “anxiously looking for” (Acts 27:29).

_ _ Paul — now looked up to by all the passengers as the man to direct them.

_ _ besought them all to take meat — “partake of a meal.”

_ _ saying, This is the fourteenth day ye have tarried — “waited for a breathing time.”

_ _ having eaten nothing — that is, taken no regular meal. The impossibility of cooking, the occupation of all hands to keep down leakage, etc., sufficiently explain this, which is indeed a common occurrence in such cases.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 27:21-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 27:33

(10) And while the day was coming on, Paul besought [them] all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.

(10) When the world trembles, the faithful alone are not only at peace, but strengthen and encourage others by their example.
