Ac 27:8

NET © Notes

tn Grk “sailing along the coast…we came.” The participle παραλεγόμενοι (paralegomenoi) has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style. L&N 54.8, “παραλέγομαι: (a technical, nautical term) to sail along beside some object – ‘to sail along the coast, to sail along the shore.’ …‘they sailed along the coast of Crete’ Ac 27:13.”

tn Grk “it”; the referent (Crete) has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

sn Lasea was a city on the southern coast of the island of Crete. This was about 60 mi (96 km) farther.
