1332 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus came unto them, walking upon the  1333 water, after they had rowed 1334 with difficulty about twenty-five or thirty furlongs. p. 73  1335 And when he drew near unto their boat, his disciples saw him walking on the water; and they were troubled, and supposed that it was a false appearance; and they cried  out from their fear. 1336 But Jesus straightway spoke unto them, and said, Take courage,  for it is I; fear not. 1337 Then Cephas answered and said unto him, My Lord, if it be thou,  bid me to come unto thee on the water. 1338 And Jesus said unto him, Come. And  Cephas went down out of the boat, and walked on the water to come unto Jesus. 1339 But [Arabic, p. 74] when he saw the wind strong, he feared, and was on the point of sinking;  and he lifted up his voice, and said, My Lord, save me. 1340 And immediately our Lord stretched out his hand and took hold of him, and said unto him,  Thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt? 1341 And when Jesus came near, he went up  unto them into the boat, he and Simon, and immediately the wind ceased. 1342 And those that were in the ship came and worshipped him, and said, Truly thou art the  Son of God. 1343 And straightway that ship arrived at the land which they made for.  1344 And when they came out of the ship to the land, they marvelled greatly and were  perplexed in themselves: 1345 and they had not understood by means of 1346 that bread, because their heart was gross.
 1347 And when the people of that region knew of the arrival of Jesus, they made haste in all that land, and began to bring those that were diseased, 1348 borne in their  beds to the place where they heard that he was. 1349 And wheresoever the place might be which he entered, of the villages or the cities, they laid the sick in the markets, and sought of him that they might touch 1350 were it only the edge of his garment: and all that touched 1351 him were healed and lived. 1352
 1353 And on the day after that, the multitude which was standing on the shore of the sea saw that there was there no other ship save that into which the disciples had  gone up, 1354 and that Jesus went not up into the ship with his disciples (but there were other ships from Tiberias near 1355 the place where they ate the bread when Jesus blessed  it): 1356 and when that multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor yet his disciples, they  [Arabic, p. 75] went up into those ships, and came to Capernaum, and sought Jesus. 1357 And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Our  Master, when camest thou hither? 1358 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye have not sought me because of 1359 your seeing the signs, but because of  your eating the bread and being satisfied. 1360 Serve not the food which perisheth, but the food which abideth in eternal life, 1361 which the Son of man will give unto you: him 1362  hath God the Father sealed. 1363 They said unto him, What shall we do that we may  work the work of God? 1364 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of  God, that ye believe in him whom he hath sent. 1365 They said unto him, What sign hast thou done, that we may see, and believe in thee? what hast thou wrought?  1366 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it was written, Bread from heaven  gave he them to eat. 1367 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not bread from  heaven; but my Father gave 1368 you the bread of truth 1369 from heaven. 1370 The bread of God is that which came down from heaven and gave the [28, 29] world life. 1371 They said unto him, Our Lord, give us at all times this bread. 1372 Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: whosoever cometh unto me shall not hunger,  and whosoever believeth in me shall not thirst for ever. 1373 But I said unto you,  Ye have seen me, and have not believed. 1374 And all that my Father hath given to me cometh unto me; and whosoever cometh unto me I shall not cast him forth without.  1375 I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but to do the will of him  that sent me; 1376 and this is the will of him that sent me, that I should lose nothing of  [Arabic, p. 76] that which he gave me, but raise it up in the last day. 1377 This is the will of my Father, that every one that seeth the Son, and believeth in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up in the last day.
 1378 The Jews therefore murmured against him because of his saying, I am the bread  which came down from heaven. 1379 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? then how saith this man, I came down from [37, 38] heaven? 1380 Jesus answered and said unto them, Murmur not one with another. 1381 No p. 74 man is able to come unto me, except the Father which sent me draw him; and I will  raise him up in the last day. 1382 It is written in the prophet, They shall all be the taught of God. Every one who heareth from the Father now, 1383 and learneth of him, cometh  unto me. 1384 No man now seeth the Father; but he that is from God, he it is that seeth  the Father. 1385 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever believeth in me hath eternal [42, 43] life. 1386 I am the bread of life. 1387 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and  they died. 1388 This is the bread which came down from heaven, that a man may eat  of it, and not die. 1389 I am the bread of life which came down from heaven: and if a man eat of this bread he shall live for ever: 1390 and the bread which I shall give is my body, which I give for the life of the world.
 1391 The Jews therefore quarrelled one with another, and said, How can he give us  [Arabic, p. 77] his body that we may eat it? 1392 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, If ye do not eat the body of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye shall  not have life in yourselves. 1393 Whosoever eateth of my body and drinketh of my blood  hath eternal life; and I will raise him up in the last day. 1394 My body truly is meat, 1395 and  my blood truly is drink. 1396 1397 Whosoever eateth my body and drinketh my blood abideth  in me, and I in him— 1398 as the living Father sent me, and I am alive because of the  Father; and whosoever eateth me, he also shall live because of me. 1399 This is the bread which came down from heaven: and not according as your fathers ate the  manna, and died: whosoever eateth of this bread shall live for ever. 1400 This he said in  the synagogue, when he was teaching in Capernaum. 1401 And many of his disciples, when they heard, said, This word is hard; who is he that can hear it?
