And having dismissed the crowds, he went up into the mountain apart to pray. And when even was come, he was alone there,
but the ship was already in the middle of the sea tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
But in the fourth watch of the night he went off to them, walking on the sea.
And the disciples, seeing him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, It is an apparition. And they cried out through fear.
But Jesus immediately spoke to them, saying, Take courage; it is *I*: be not afraid.
And Peter answering him said, Lord, if it be *thou*, command me to come to thee upon the waters.
And he said, Come. And Peter, having descended from the ship, walked upon the waters to go to Jesus.
But seeing the wind strong he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, Lord, save me.
And immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?
And when they had gone up into the ship, the wind fell.
But those in the ship came and did homage to him, saying, Truly thou art God's Son.
