    SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:42

    Entonces el acuerdo de los soldados era que matasen los presos, para que ninguno se fugase nadando.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 27:42

    Verse 42. The
    soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners] What blood-thirsty, cowardly villains must these have been! Though, through the providence of God, those poor men had escaped a watery grave, and had borne all the anxiety and distresses of this disastrous voyage, as well as the others, now that there is a likelihood of all getting safe to land that could swim, lest these should swim to shore, and so escape, those men, whose trade was in human blood, desired to have them massacred! We have not many traits in the histories of the most barbarous nations that can be a proper counterpart to this quintessence of humano-diabolic cruelty.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 42. And the soldiers
    counsel was to kill the prisoners , etc.] Paul, and the rest: this they had not only an inclination to, but they declared it, and gave it as their opinion, and what they thought advisable to be done directly: lest any of them should swim out and escape ; and they should be accountable for them: but this was dreadful wickedness in them to seek to take away the lives of others, when they themselves were in so much danger; and monstrous ingratitude to the Apostle Paul, who had been so much concerned for their lives, and careful of them, and had been the means of saving them, and for whose sake they were saved: the devil must have had a great hand in this.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 39-44 - The
    ship that had weathered the storm in the open sea, where it ha room, is dashed to pieces when it sticks fast. Thus, if the heart fixe in the world in affection, and cleaving to it, it is lost. Satan' temptations beat against it, and it is gone; but as long as it keep above the world, though tossed with cares and tumults, there is hop for it. They had the shore in view, yet suffered shipwreck in the harbour; thus we are taught never to be secure. Though there is grea difficulty in the way of the promised salvation, it shall, withou fail, be brought to pass. It will come to pass that whatever the trial and dangers may be, in due time all believers will get safely to heaven. Lord Jesus, thou hast assured us that none of thine shal perish. Thou wilt bring them all safe to the heavenly shore. And what pleasing landing will that be! Thou wilt present them to thy Father and give thy Holy Spirit full possession of them for ever __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    27:42 {
    Counsel was to kill} (boule egeneto hina--apokteinwsin). The soldiers did not relish the idea of the escape of the prisoners. Hence there came this "counsel" (boule). Regular Greek idiom for purpose (hina and aorist active subjunctive of apokteinw, to kill). Soldiers were responsible for the lives of prisoners (#Ac 12:19). {Swim out} (ekkolumbesas). First aorist active participle of ekkolumbaw, old verb to swim out and so away. {Escape} (diafugei). Second aorist (effective) active subjunctive of diafeugw, to make a clean (dia) escape.
