13 Now Iēsous having heard, he went out from there in a boat to a deserted-placel by himself. And when the crowd heard they followed him on foot from their cities. 14 And having come out he saw a great crowd, and had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 Now when it became evening, the disciples came to him saying: This place is a desertl and the hour has already past. Therefore disperse the crowd so having gone into the towns they may buy themselves bread. 16 But Iēsous said to them: They have no need to be going. You give to them to be eating. 17 But they say to him: We do not have here but five loaves and two fish. 18 So he says: Be bringing them here to me. 19 And having ordered the crowd to lay back on the grass, taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up to heaven he gave thanks, and having broken them he gave to the disciples the loaves, and disciples gave them to the crowd. 20 And all ate and were filledm. And they took the surplus of the fragments, twelve baskets full. 21 And those eating were about five thousand menn apart from womeno and children.
✣ Walking on Water ✣
22 And he compelledp his disciplesj to embark in the boat and go to the other side, until he disperse the crowd. 23 And having dispersed the crowd he went up to a mountain by himself to pray. 24 Now the boat was already many stadionsq away from the land, being put to the test by the swells, for the wind was against them. 25 So in the fourth watchr of the night he came to them walking on the sea. 26 Now the disciples having seen him walking on the sea, they were frightened saying: It is a ghosts, and they screamed from fear. 27 But immediately Iēsous spoke to them saying: Take courage, It is I, Be not fearing. 28 But Petros answering said to him: Lord if it is you, order me to be coming to you on the water. 29 So he said: Come! And coming out of the boat Petros walked on the water and came towards Iēsous. 30 But seeing the strongA wind he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out saying: Lord, save me. 31 So immediately Iēsous having stretched out his hand laid hold of him, and says to him: O little-faith, why did you doubtt? 32 And when they came into the boat the wind abated. 33 And those in the boat worshipped him saying: Truly you are the son of God.
