And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
Therefore I say unto you, Take no
thought for your life, what ye
shall eat, or what ye shall drink;
nor yet for your body, what ye
shall put on. Is not the life more

Behold the fowls of the air: for
they sow not, neither do they
reap, nor gather into barns; yet
your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can
add one cubit unto his stature?

Solomon in all his glory was not

Wherefore, if God so clothe the
grass of the field, which to day

every wing; in the shadow of the
branches thereof shall they dwell.

made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD
have spoken and have done it.
