But when the ship had run aground and began to break to pieces, the soldiers proposed to their cap tain that the prisoners should all be put to death, for fear some of them might escape. Under the Roman law. if a prisoner escaped his guard would be punished in his place. When Pe ter was delivered from prison his guards were put to death (Acts 12: 19). The centurion was not willing that Paul should be put to death, and so would not allow the soldiers to carry out their suggestion. These prison ers owed their lives to the fact that they had a righteous man among them. Few people realize what a blessing it is to have good people liv ing among them. Even wicked Sodom would have been spared if ten right eous people could have been found among them. When the ship was broken to pieces near the shore all those on board reached land, though some of them could not swim. God had promised that they should not be lost, and so their lives were safe, though they had only a broken timber to cling to in the midst of the sea. God's promises never fail. The safety of others is often far more dependent on us than we realize. The sailors, soldiers and prisoners were saved because Paul was faithful to God. GAIA'ESTON, TEX.
