Coptic Mark 4:35-41

Even the wind and the sea obey him

35.auw peJaF nau Hm peHoou etmmau ntererouHe Swpe Je maron epikro
And he said to them on that day, when it had become evening, "Let us go to the (other) shore."

36.aukapmhhSe Ce autaloF epJoei nqe etFnHhts aHenkeeJhu sChr nmmaF
And having left the crowd, they took him aboard the boat as he was, and some other boats sailed with him.

37.auw aunoC nHathu Swpe anHoeim FwCe epJoei Hwste eomsF
And a great whirlwind occurred, the waves were leaping up into the boat, so that it was about to sink.

38.ntoF de neFHipaHou mpJoei eFnkotk HiJn ouSot auw auneHse mmoF euJw mmos naF. Je psaH ngo an pe rroouS Je tnnamou
But he was in the back of the boat, asleep upon a cushion. So they woke him up, saying to him: "Master! Have you no care that we may die?"

39.aFtwounF de aFepitima mpthu auw peJaF nteqalassa Je karw nteStmrw auw apthu HrhC aunoC nJamh Swpe
But he got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Be silent! Be quiet!" And the wind became still, and a great calm occurred.

40.auw peJaF nau Je aHrwtn tetno nCabHht mpatetnkapistis nhtn
Then he said to them, "Why were you fainthearted? Do you not yet have faith?"

41.auw aurHote Hn ounoC nHote euJw mmos nneuerhu Je ouaS mmine pe pai Je pkethu nmteqalassa swtm nswF
And they became afraid with great fear, saying to one another, "What sort of (person) is this One, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"
