V. 1-6 This island is known today as Malta. Paul is bitten by a poisonous snake, but the people of the island didn't know the power of God in Paul. From supposing Paul to be some wicked man, they turn to supposing him to be a god.
V. 7-15 Italy at last! A long walk before them, but the Lord had His own people waiting to greet Paul.
V. 16-24 Paul witnesses about Jesus. Some believed, some did not.
V. 25-31 A very important statement here. God's salvation now goes out to the world! Read Rom. 11:1111I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. (Romans 11:11). How sweet the last four words. So will it be in the life of each one who walks with God a quiet repose, not in ourselves, or in our work, but in the Lord.
