Matthew 14:25-33 NLT
[25] About three o'clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. [26] When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, "It's a ghost!" [27] But Jesus spoke to them at once. "Don't be afraid," he said. "Take courage. I am here!" [28] Then Peter called to him, "Lord, if it's really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water." [29] "Yes, come," Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. [30] But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted. [31] Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. "You have so little faith," Jesus said. "Why did you doubt me?" [32] When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. [33] Then the disciples worshiped him. "You really are the Son of God!" they exclaimed.

馬太福音 14:25-33 Chinese Union Version Modern Punctuation (Traditional) (CUVMPT)

25 夜裡四更天,耶穌在海面上走,往門徒那裡去。 26 門徒看見他在海面上走,就驚慌了,說:「是個鬼怪!」便害怕,喊叫起來。 27 耶穌連忙對他們說:「你們放心!是我,不要怕!」 28 彼得說:「主,如果是你,請叫我從水面上走到你那裡去。」 29 耶穌說:「你來吧!」彼得就從船上下去,在水面上走,要到耶穌那裡去。 30 只因見風甚大,就害怕,將要沉下去,便喊著說:「主啊,救我!」 31 耶穌趕緊伸手拉住他,說:「你這小信的人哪,為什麼疑惑呢?」 32 他們上了船,風就住了。 33 在船上的人都拜他,說:「你真是神的兒子了!」
