23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, (A)he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When (B)evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat by this time was a long way[a] from the land,[b] beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. 25 And (C)in the fourth watch of the night[c] he came to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, (D)they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, (E)“Take heart; it is I. (F)Do not be afraid.”

28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and (G)walked on the water and came to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind,[d] he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, (H)“Lord, save me.” 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, (I)“O you of little faith, why did you (J)doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, (K)the wind ceased. 33 And (L)those in the boat (M)worshiped him, saying, (N)“Truly you are (O)the Son of God.”

34 (P)And when they had crossed over, they came to land at (Q)Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and (R)brought to him all who were sick 36 and implored him that they might only touch (S)the fringe of his garment. And (T)as many as touched it were made well.

16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18 The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles,[a] they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were frightened. 20 (D)But he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” 21 Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.
