Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 27:25
- Wherefore be of good cheer (dio eutumeite).
- God had spoken. That was enough. This old verb from eutumov in the N.T. only here, verse 25; James 5:13. See the adjective Acts 27:36.
- For I believe God (pisteuw gar twi tewi).
- This is Paul's reason for his own good cheer and for his exhortation to confidence in spite of circumstances so untoward. Paul had doubtless prayed for his own life and for the lives of all. He was sure that he was to bear his witness in Rome.
