This Bible story happens right after the miracle of the loaves and fishes in the Gospel of Matthew 14:22-33:
14:22 And forthwith Jesus obliged his disciples to go up into the boat, and to go before him over the water, till he dismissed the people.
14:23 And having dismissed the multitude, he went into a mountain alone to pray. And when it was evening, he was there alone.
14:24 But the boat in the midst of the sea was tossed with the waves: for the wind was contrary.
14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night, he came to them walking upon the sea.
14:26 And they seeing him walking upon the sea, were troubled, saying: It is an apparition. And they cried out for fear.
14:27 And immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying: Be of good heart: it is I, fear ye not.
14:28 And Peter making answer, said: Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee upon the waters.
14:29 And he said: Come. And Peter going down out of the boat walked upon the water to come to Jesus.
14:30 But seeing the wind strong, he was afraid: and when he began to sink, he cried out, saying: Lord, save me.
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretching forth his hand took hold of him, and said to him: O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?
14:32 And when they were come up into the boat, the wind ceased.
14:33 And they that were in the boat came and adored him, saying: Indeed thou art the Son of God.
