Five Thousand Fed

13 1Now when Jesus heard about John, He withdrew from there in a boat to a secluded place by Himself; and when the apeople heard of this, they followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 When He went bashore, He 2saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and 3healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and the hour is already clate; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves." 16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!" 17 They said to Him, "We have here only 4five loaves and two fish." 18 And He said, "Bring them here to Me." 19 Ordering the dpeople to esit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He 5blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, 20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full 6baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.

Jesus Walks on the Water

22 7Immediately He fmade the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. 23 After He had sent the crowds away, 8He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone. 24 But the boat was already ga long distance from the land, hbattered by the waves; for the wind was i9contrary. 25 And in 10the jfourth 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 11a ghost!" And they cried out kin fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "12Take courage, it is I; 13do not be afraid." 28 Peter said to Him, "Lord, if 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. 30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" 31 Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, "14You of little faith, why did you doubt?" 32 When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "You are certainly 15God's Son!" 34 16When they had crossed over, they came to land at 17Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place lrecognized Him, they sent word into all that surrounding district and brought to Him all who were sick; 36 and they implored Him that they might just touch 18the fringe of His cloak; and as many as 19touched it were cured.
