And behold there arose a great Tempest in the Sea, (L.) and there came down [M.] a great Storm of Wind (L.) on the Lake, (Mr.] and the Waves beat into the Ship, [M.] infomuch that the Ship was covered with Waves, [Mr.] so that it was now full, (L.) and they were filled with Water, and were in Jeopardy : [ Mr.) and he was in the hinder Part of the Ship, afleep on a Pillow. [M.] And his Disciples came unto him, [L.) and awoke him, saying, Master, Mafter, we perish ; [Mr.] Master, carest thou not that we perish? [M.] Lord, save us; we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of LITTLE FAITH? Then he arose, and rebuked the Winds and the Sea, (L.) and the raging of the Water, [Mr.] and said unto the Sea, Peace, be still: and the Wind ALLAYED, (L.) and they ceased, [Mr.] and there was a great Calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful ? how is it that ye have not FAITH? [L.] where is your Faith? [Mr.] And they feared exceedingly. [.11.)

And always Night and Day he was in the Mountains, and in the Tombs, CRYING, and cutting himself with Stones. But when he saw
