And the soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape. But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they who could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:
Y el plan de los soldados era matar a los presos, para que ninguno de ellos escapara a nado; pero el centurión, queriendo salvar a Pablo, impidió su propósito, y ordenó que los que pudieran nadar se arrojaran primero por la borda y llegaran a tierra
When we walk with God and trust Him, He can and will control any situation. These soldiers were not believers, but God controlled them not to do what they were supposed to do. Man is nothing in comparison to God almighty. Give Him reverence and praise. He has the whole world in His hands.
