Matthew 14:28-31 [Latin]

28 And Peter making answer, said: Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee upon the waters.

29 And he said: Come. And Peter going down out of the boat, walked upon the water to come to Jesus.

30 But seeing the wind strong, he was afraid: and when he began to sink, he cried out, saying: Lord, save me.

31 And immediately Jesus stretching forth his hand took hold of him, and said to him: O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?

Domine, si tu es, jube me venire ad te super aquas. Et extendens manum apprehendit eum. Et dixit Jesus: Modicae fidei, quare dubitasti? Cumque vidisset ventum validum venientem, timuit, et cum coepisset mergi, clamavit: Domine, salvum me fac. Et extendens manum apprehendit eum. Et dixit Jesus: Modicae fidei, quare dubitasti?
