Original text and translations

German.png German text

Da traten die Jünger zu Jesu
und wecketen ihn auff und sprachen:
"Herr, hilf uns wir verderben".

Da Sagt er zu ihnen: "O ihr kleingleubigen,
warumb seyd ihr so furchtsam?"
und Stund auff, und betrawete den Wind
und das Meer da ward es ganz stille.

Die Menschen aber verwunderten sich und sprachen:
"Was ist das für ein Mann,
daß ihm Wind und Meer gehorsam ist?"

"betrawete" (in 1545 Bible: "bedräuete") = 'Bedrohte'

English.png English translation

And his disciples came to him,
and awoke him, saying,
Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, O ye of little faith,
Why are ye fearful?
Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this
that even the winds and the sea obey him!
Matth. 8:25-27 (KJV)
