And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about 1the fourth watch of the nighta he came to them, walking on the sea. 2He meant to pass by them,
but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out,
for they all saw him and 3were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, 4"Take heart; it is I. 5Do not be afraid."51
And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded,
for 6they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts 7were hardened.
538When they had crossed over, they came to land at 9Gennesaret and moored to the shore.
And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately 10recognized him
and ran about the whole region and began to bring 11the sick people 12on their beds to wherever they heard he was.
And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, 13they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even 14the fringe of his garment. And 15as many as touched it were made well.
