And they came to him, and awoke him
That is, the disciples came from some part of the ship, to the hinder part of it, where Christ was asleep; and by their shrieks and cries, and repeated vociferations, awaked him out of sleep:
saying, Master, Master, we perish.
The Vulgate Latin, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions, only read "master", without a repetition of the word, as in Matthew and Mark; but the Syriac and Persic versions repeat it, and render the words, "our master, our master"; (See Gill on Matthew 8:25).
Then he rose, and rebuked the wind, and the raging of the water, and
they ceased, and there was a calm;
(See Gill on Matthew 8:26).
