4. The Miracle of Walking on the Sea
22 aAnd immediately He 1compelled the disciples to step into the boat and to go before Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away.
23 And after He sent the crowds away, He went up to the mountain privately to 1apray. And when 2night fell, He was there alone.
24 Now the boat was already 1in the midst of the sea, being battered by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the 1fourth awatch of the night He came to them, 2bwalking on the sea.
26 And the disciples, seeing Him walking on the sea, were astartled, saying, It is a ghost! And they cried out for fear.
27 But immediately Jesus talked to them, saying, Take acourage. 1It is I. Do bnot be afraid.
28 And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.
29 And He said, Come. And Peter, coming down from the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30 But 1seeing the strong wind, he became frightened; and as he began to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, asave me!
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him and said to him, You of alittle faith, why did you 1bdoubt?
32 And when they got up into the boat, the 1wind ceased.
33 And those who were in the boat aworshipped Him, saying, Truly You are the 1bSon of God.
