Jesus Walks on the Water

45 (A)And immediately Jesus had His disciples get into (B)the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, to (C)Bethsaida, while He Himself *dismissed the crowd. 46 And after (D)saying goodbye to them, He left (E)for the mountain to pray.

47 When it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He was alone on the land. 48 Seeing them [a]straining at the oars—for the wind was against them—at about the [b](F)fourth watch of the night, He *came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them. 49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they thought that it was a ghost, and they cried out; 50 for they all saw Him and were [c]terrified. But immediately He spoke with them and *said to them, (G)Take courage; it is I, (H)do not be afraid.” 51 Then He got into (I)the boat with them, and the wind stopped; and they were utterly astonished, 52 for (J)they [d]had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but [e]their hearts (K)were hardened.
