NIV - Matthew 14:22-36

Jesus Walks on the Water

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. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. 25 During the fourth watch of night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” 34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. 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 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Jesus Anda sobre as Águas

22 Logo em seguida, Jesus insistiu com os discípulos para que entrassem no barco e fossem adiante dele para o outro lado, enquanto ele despedia a multidão. 23 Tendo despedido a multidão, subiu sozinho a um monte para orar. Ao anoitecer, ele estava ali sozinho, 24 mas o barco já estava a considerável distânciaa da terra, fustigado pelas ondas, porque o vento soprava contra ele. 25 Alta madrugadab, Jesus dirigiu-se a eles, andando sobre o mar. 26 Quando o viram andando sobre o mar, ficaram aterrorizados e disseram: “É um fantasma!” E gritaram de medo. 27 Mas Jesus imediatamente lhes disse: “Coragem! Sou eu. Não tenham medo!” 28 “Senhor”, disse Pedro, “se és tu, manda-me ir ao teu encontro por sobre as águas”. 29 “Venha”, respondeu ele. Então Pedro saiu do barco, andou sobre as águas e foi na direção de Jesus. 30 Mas, quando reparou no vento, ficou com medo e, começando a afundar, gritou: “Senhor, salva-me!” 31 Imediatamente Jesus estendeu a mão e o segurou. E disse: “Homem de pequena fé, por que você duvidou?” 32 Quando entraram no barco, o vento cessou. 33 Então os que estavam no barco o adoraram, dizendo: “Verdadeiramente tu és o Filho de Deus”. 34 Depois de atravessarem o mar, chegaram a Genesaré. 35 Quando os homens daquele lugar reconheceram Jesus, espalharam a notícia em toda aquela região e lhe trouxeram os seus doentes. 36 Suplicavam-lhe que apenas pudessem tocar na borda do seu manto; e todos os que nele tocaram foram curados.
