Matthew 14:13-36

NLT 13 As soon as Jesus heard the news, he left in a boat to a remote area to be alone. But the crowds heard where he was headed and followed on foot from many towns. NIV 13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. NLT 14 Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. NIV 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. NLT 15 That evening the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.” NIV 15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” NLT 16 But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.” NIV 16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” NLT 17 “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” they answered. NIV 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. NLT 18 “Bring them here,” he said. NIV 18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. NLT 19 Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. NIV 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. NLT 20 They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. NIV 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. NLT 21 About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children! NIV 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children. NLT 22 Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. NIV 22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. NLT 23 After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. NIV 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, NLT 24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. NIV 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. NLT 25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. NIV 25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. NLT 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” NIV 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. NLT 27 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here! ” NIV 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” NLT 28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” NIV 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” NLT 29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. NIV 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. NLT 30 But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. NIV 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” NLT 31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?” NIV 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” NLT 32 When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. NIV 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. NLT 33 Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed. NIV 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” NLT 34 After they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. NIV 34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. NLT 35 When the people recognized Jesus, the news of his arrival spread quickly throughout the whole area, and soon people were bringing all their sick to be healed. NIV 35 And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him NLT 36 They begged him to let the sick touch at least the fringe of his robe, and all who touched him were healed. NIV 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.
