Matthew 14 : 15 - 36

Chapter 14

15When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food."
16But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
17And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish."
18He said, "Bring them here to Me."
19Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
20So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.
21Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
22Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
23And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.
24But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
25Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear.
27But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."
28And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
29So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
30But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
31And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
33Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God."
34When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret.
35And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick,
36and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.
