Romans 11:25-36
Matthew 14:22-36

Romans 11:25-36
[25] Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brethren: a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in,
[26] and so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion,
he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;
[27] “and this will be my covenant with them
when I take away their sins.”
[28] As regards the gospel they are enemies of God, for your sake; but as regards election they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers.
[29] For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.
[30] Just as you were once disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience,
[31] so they have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may receive mercy.
[32] For God has consigned all men to disobedience, that he may have mercy upon all.
[33] O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
[34] “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
[35] “Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”
[36] For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.

Matthew 14:22-36
[22] Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
[23] And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
[24] but the boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves; for the wind was against them.
[25] And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.
[26] But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
[27] But immediately he spoke to them, saying, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.”
[28] And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water.”
[29] He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus;
[30] but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”
[31] Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “O man of little faith, why did you doubt?”
[32] And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
[33] And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
[34] And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret.
[35] And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent round to all that region and brought to him all that were sick,
[36] and besought him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment; and as many as touched it were made well.
