Mark 6 : 45 - 56

Chapter 6

45Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He sent the multitude away.
46And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray.
47Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land.
48Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by.
49And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out;
50for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."
51Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled.
52For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.
53When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there.
54And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,
55ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.
56Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.

And Glory be to God forever.
