    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:25

    Mas a la cuarta vela de la noche, Jess fue a ellos andando sobre el mar.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 14:25

    Verse 25. The fourth
    watch] Anciently the Jews divided the night into three watches, consisting of four hours each. The first watch is mentioned, Lamenations ii. 19: the second, Judg. vii. 19; and the third, Exod. xiv. 24; but a fourth watch is not mentioned in any part of the OLD Testament.

    This division the Romans had introduced in Judea, as also the custom of dividing the day into twelve hours: see John xi. 9. The first watch began at six o'clock in the evening, and continued till nine; the second began at nine, and continued till twelve; the third began at twelve, and continued till three next morning; and the fourth began at three, and continued till six. It was therefore between the hours of three and six in the morning that Jesus made his appearance to his disciples.

    Walking on the sea.] Thus suspending the laws of gravitation was a proper manifestation of unlimited power. Jesus did this by his own power; therefore Jesus showed forth his Godhead. In this one miracle we may discover three:-1. Though at a distance from his disciples, he knew their distress. 2. He found them out on the lake, and probably in the midst of darkness. 3. He walked upon the water. Job, speaking of those things whereby the omnipotence of God was demonstrated, says particularly, Job ix. 8, He walketh upon the waves of the sea: intimating that this was impossible to any thing but Omnipotence.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 25. And in the fourth watch of the night , etc.] This is said, according to the division of the night into four watches, by the Jews; who say, that there are four watches in the night, and four watches in the day.

    It is true indeed, that it is disputed among them, whether there were four watches, or only three in the night: some say there were four, others say there were but three f860 ; not but that these made a division of the night into four parts, the three first of which, they thought were properly the watches of the night, and the fourth was the morning. The first watch began at six oclock in the evening, and lasted till nine; the second began at nine, and ended at twelve, which was midnight; the third began at twelve, and closed at three; the fourth began at three, and ended at six in the morning. But since some Jewish writers are so positive for the division of the night into three watches only, and a watch is with them called the third part of the night; and it is dubious with some, whether the Jewish division is here referred to; and since it is so clear a point, that the Romans divided their night into four watches, and their writers speak not only of the first, second, and third watches, but also of the fourth watch f864 ; it is thought by some, that the evangelist speaks after the Roman manner: but however, certain it is, that within this period, probably at the beginning of it, after three oclock in the morning, Christ came to his disciples, when they had been almost all the night at sea, tossed with waves, and in great danger. Jesus went unto them ; from the mountain where he had been praying, the greatest part of the night, to the sea side, and so upon the waters to them; for it follows, walking upon the sea ; as on dry land: though it was so stormy and boisterous, that the disciples, though in a ship, were in the utmost danger, yet he upon the waves, was in none at all; by which action he showed himself to be the Lord of the sea, and to be truly and properly God; whose character is, that he treadeth upon the waves of the sea, ( Job 9:8).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-33 - Those are not Christ's followers who cannot enjoy being alone with God and their own hearts. It is good, upon special occasions, and when we find our hearts enlarged, to continue long in secret prayer, and i pouring out our hearts before the Lord. It is no new thing for Christ' disciples to meet with storms in the way of duty, but he thereby show himself with the more grace to them and for them. He can take what wa he pleases to save his people. But even appearances of deliveranc sometimes occasion trouble and perplexity to God's people, from mistakes about Christ. Nothing ought to affright those that have Chris near them, and know he is theirs; not death itself. Peter walked upo the water, not for diversion or to boast of it, but to go to Jesus; an in that he was thus wonderfully borne up. Special supports ar promised, and are to be expected, but only in spiritual pursuits; no can we ever come to Jesus, unless we are upheld by his power. Chris bade Peter come, not only that he might walk upon the water, and s know his Lord's power, but that he might know his own weakness. And the Lord often lets his servants have their choice, to humble and prove them, and to show the greatness of his power and grace. When we loo off from Christ, and look at the greatness of opposing difficulties, we shall begin to fall; but when we call to him, he will stretch out his arm, and save us. Christ is the great Saviour; those who would be saved, must come to him, and cry to him, for salvation; we are neve brought to this, till we find ourselves sinking: the sense of nee drives us to him. He rebuked Peter. Could we but believe more, we should suffer less. The weakness of faith, and the prevailing of ou doubts, displease our Lord Jesus, for there is no good reason wh Christ's disciples should be of a doubtful mind. Even in a stormy da he is to them a very present help. None but the world's Creator coul multiply the loaves, none but its Governor could tread upon the water of the sea: the disciples yield to the evidence, and confess their faith. They were suitably affected, and worshipped Christ. He tha comes to God, must believe; and he that believes in God, will come, He 11:6.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:25 {
    Walking upon the sea} (peripatwn epi ten qalassan). Another nature miracle. Some scholars actually explain it all away by urging that Jesus was only walking along the beach and not on the water, an impossible theory unless Matthew's account is legendary. Matthew uses the accusative (extension) with epi in verse #25 and the genitive (specifying case) in #26.
