    SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:38

    Y satisfechos de comida, aliviaban la nave, echando el grano al mar.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 27:38

    Verse 38. They lightened the
    ship] They hoped that, by casting out the lading, the ship would draw less water; in consequence of which, they could get nearer the shore.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. And when they had eaten enough , etc.]] Were satisfied, having eaten a
    full meal: they lightened the ship ; of its burden, that it might the better carry them to the shore, and that by the following method: and cast out the wheat into the sea ; which seems to have been part of the ships provision; or one part of their lading, which they brought from Egypt, and were carrying to Italy: they had cast out some of the goods of the ship before, and also the tackling of the ship, and now, last of all, the wheat; for what was eatable they reserved till last, not knowing to what extremity they might be reduced.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 30-38 -
    God, who appointed the end, that they should be saved, appointed the means, that they should be saved by the help of these shipmen. Duty is ours, events are God's; we do not trust God, but tempt him, when we saw we put ourselves under his protection, if we do not use proper means such as are within our power, for our safety. But how selfish are me in general, often even ready to seek their own safety by the destruction of others! Happy those who have such a one as Paul in their company, who not only had intercourse with Heaven, but was of a enlivening spirit to those about him. The sorrow of the world work death, while joy in God is life and peace in the greatest distresse and dangers. The comfort of God's promises can only be ours by believing dependence on him, to fulfil his word to us; and the salvation he reveals must be waited for in use of the means he appoints. If God has chosen us to salvation, he has also appointed tha we shall obtain it by repentance, faith, prayer, and perseverin obedience; it is fatal presumption to expect it in any other way. It is an encouragement to people to commit themselves to Christ as their Saviour, when those who invite them, clearly show that they do s themselves.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    27:38 {When they had eaten enough} (koresqentes trofes). First aorist passive of korennumi, old verb to satisfy, to satiate, with the genitive. Literally, "Having been satisfied with
    food." Here only in the N.T. {They lightened} (ekoufizon). Inchoative imperfect active, began to lighten. Old verb from koufos and originally to be light, but transitive to lighten, as here, from Hippocrates on. {Throwing out the wheat} (ekballomenoi ton siton). The cargo of wheat. The second ekbole (verse #18) or casting out and overboard which was only partially done at first.
