The Holy Gospel According to Matthew   14: 22-26

14:22 And Jesus promptly compelled his disciples to climb into the boat, and to precede him in crossing the sea, while he dismissed the crowds.
14:23 And having dismissed the multitude, he ascended alone onto a mountain to pray. And when evening arrived, he was alone there.
14:24 But in the midst of the sea, the boat was being tossed about by the waves. For the wind was against them.
14:25 Then, in the fourth watch of the night, he came to them, walking upon the sea.
14:26 And seeing him walking upon the sea, they were disturbed, saying: “It must be an apparition.” And they cried out, because of fear.
