Now it came to pass on a certain day
The same day at even, as Mark says, ( Mark 4:35 ) in which he delivered the parables of the sower, and of the seed cast into the ground, and of the grain of mustard seed:
that he went into a ship with his disciples;
they following him into it, ( Matthew 8:23 )
and he said unto them, let us go over unto the other side
of Gennesaret, or sea of Galilee:
and they launched forth;
into the sea; they set sail, and proceeded: this clause is omitted in the Syriac and Persic versions.
