    SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:8

    Y costendola difícilmente, llegamos a un lugar que llaman Buenos Puertos, cerca del cual estaba la ciudad de Lasea.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 27:8

    Verse 8. The Fair Havens] This
    port still remains, and is known by the same name; it was situated towards the northern extremity of the island.

    Was the city of Lasea.] There is no city of this name now remaining: the Codex Alexandrinus reads alassa, Alassa; probably Lysia, near the port of Gortyna, to the eastward.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And hardly passing it , etc.] That is, Salmone, with great difficulty, because of the winds: came unto a place which is called the Fair Havens ; called by other writers Cale Acte, or the fair shore, and is placed by Ptolomy in Eubaea, and by Herodotus in Sicily; but by Stephanus is said to be a city of the Cretians, and which agrees with this account; nigh whereunto was the city of Lasae ; there was a city in Crete called by Solinus Lisson, and by Ptolomy Lyssus, which he places on the south side of the island; and by Pliny Lasos, which comes pretty near to this name, but then he places it in the midland part of Crete; who also makes mention of an island called Lasia over against Troezenium, and another that was one of the Cyclades; the Syriac version here read, Lasia: Jerom says, Lasea is a city on the shore of the island of Crete, near the place which is called the Fair Havens, as Luke himself explains it; for which some corruptly read Thalassa; as do the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions; and the Alexandrian copy Alassa: Beza conjectures that it is the same with Eloea, which Pliny makes mention of in the above cited place, as a city in Crete.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - It was determined by the
    counsel of God, before it was determined by the counsel of Festus, that Paul should go to Rome; for God had wor for him to do there. The course they steered, and the places the touched at, are here set down. And God here encourages those who suffe for him, to trust in him; for he can put it into the hearts of those to befriend them, from whom they least expect it. Sailors must make the best of the wind: and so must we all in our passage over the ocean of this world. When the winds are contrary, yet we must be getting forwar as well as we can. Many who are not driven backward by cros providences, do not get forward by favourable providences. And man real Christians complain as to the concerns of their souls, that the have much ado to keep their ground. Every fair haven is not a saf haven. Many show respect to good ministers, who will not take their advice. But the event will convince sinners of the vanity of their hopes, and the folly of their conduct.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    27:8 {Coasting along} (paralegomenoi). Present middle participle of paralegw, to lay beside, not from legw, to collect or legw, to say. Diodorus Siculus uses paralegomai in precisely this sense of coasting along, like
    Latin _legere oram_. In N.T. only here and verse #13. {Fair Havens} (kalous limenas). this harbor is named Kalus Limeonas, a small bay two miles east of Cape Matala. It opens to the East and Southeast, but is not fit to winter in. this harbor would protect them for a time from the winds. {The city of Lasea} (polis lasea). Neither Lasea nor Fair Havens is mentioned by any ancient writer, two of the hundred cities of Crete.
