25 And in (A)the [a]fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. 26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is (B)a ghost!” And they cried out [b]in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, (C)Take courage, [c]it is I; (D)do not be afraid.”

28 Peter responded and said to Him, “Lord, if [d]it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and came toward Jesus.
