Genesis 37:1-4 | Common English Bible (CEB)
1Jacob lived in the land of Canaan where his father was an immigrant.
2 This is the account of Jacob’s descendants. Joseph was 17 years old and tended the flock with his brothers. While he was helping the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father’s wives, Joseph told their father unflattering things about them.
3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons because he was born when Jacob was old. Jacob had made for him a long robe.
4 When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of his brothers, they hated him and couldn’t even talk nicely to him.
And Matthew 14: 22-33 | Common English Bible (CEB)
22 Right then, Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead to the other side of the lake while he dismissed the crowds.
23 When he sent them away, he went up onto a mountain by himself to pray. Evening came and he was alone.
24 Meanwhile, the boat, fighting a strong headwind, was being battered by the waves and was already far away from land.
25 Very early in the morning he came to his disciples, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified and said, “It’s a ghost!” They were so frightened they screamed.
27 Just then Jesus spoke to them, “Be encouraged! It’s me. Don’t be afraid.”
28 Peter replied, “Lord, if it’s you, order me to come to you on the water.”
29 And Jesus said, “Come.” Then Peter got out of the boat and was walking on the water toward Jesus.
30 But when Peter saw the strong wind, he became frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, “Lord, rescue me!”
31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him, saying, “You man of weak faith! Why did you begin to have doubts?”
32 When they got into the boat, the wind settled down.
33 Then those in the boat worshipped Jesus and said, “You must be God’s Son!”
