Jesus Walks on the Water

45 (A)Immediately he (B)made his disciples get into (C)the boat and go before him to the other side, (D)to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 And after he had taken leave of them, (E)he went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when (F)evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about (G)the fourth watch of the night[a] he came to them, walking on the sea. (H)He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, 50 for they all saw him and (I)were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, (J)“Take heart; it is I. (K)Do not be afraid.” 51 And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for (L)they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts (M)were hardened.

Jesus Heals the Sick in Gennesaret

53 (N)When they had crossed over, they came to land at (O)Gennesaret and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately (P)recognized him 55 and ran about the whole region and began to bring (Q)the sick people (R)on their beds to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, (S)they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even (T)the fringe of his garment. And (U)as many as touched it were made well.

Glorious Things of You Are Spoken

A Psalm of (A)the Sons of Korah. A Song.

87 On (B)the holy mount (C)stands the city he founded;
    the Lord (D)loves the gates of Zion
    more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
(E)Glorious things of you are spoken,
    O (F)city of God. Selah

Among those who (G)know me I mention (H)Rahab and Babylon;
    behold, Philistia and Tyre, with (I)Cush[a]
    “This one was born there,” they say.
And of Zion it shall be said,
    “This one and that one were born in her”;
    for the Most High himself will (J)establish her.
The Lord records as he (K)registers the peoples,
    “This one was born there.” Selah

(L)Singers and (M)dancers alike say,
    “All my (N)springs are in you.”
