    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:26

    Y l les dice: ¿Por qu temis, hombres de poca fe? Entonces, despierto, reprendi a los vientos y al mar; y se hizo grande bonanza.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 8:26

    Verse 26. Why are ye fearful, O ye of little
    faith?] Faith is ever bold-incredulity always timid. When faith fails in temptation, there is the utmost danger of shipwreck. Lord, increase our faith! is a necessary prayer for all who desire to be saved.

    Then he arose and rebuked the winds, &c.] As the agitation of the sea was only the effect of the wind, it was necessary to remove the cause of the disturbance, that the effect might cease. Joshua did not say to the earth, Earth, stand thou still, because the earth is not the cause of its own motion: but, Sun, stand thou still, wd m shemesh dom, Sun, be silent, or restrain thy influence, which is a proper cause of the revolutions of all the planets. When the solar influence was by the miraculous power of God suspended, the standing still of the earth was a necessary consequence.

    Both Christ and Joshua spoke with the strictest philosophical precision. See the notes on Josh. x. 12-14.

    There was a great calm.] One word of Christ can change the face of nature; one word of his can restore calm and peace to the most troubled and disconsolate soul. Prayer and faith, if sincere, shall be heard, though they may be weak. 1. That our imperfections may not hinder us from praying to God. 2. That we may be persuaded it is not our merits which make our prayers effectual. 3. That we may offer them up with great humility: and, 4. That we may be fully united to Christ, without which union there is no salvation.

    There was at first a great agitation; then a great calm. Thus God ever proportions the comfort to the affliction.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. And he saith unto them, why are ye fearful ? etc.] Though they had some faith in him, yet there was a great deal of fear and unbelief, for which Christ blames them, saying, O ye of little faith : (see Gill on Matthew 6:30). In Luke, the phrase is, where is your faith? what is become of it? You professed but just now to believe in me, is your faith gone already? In Mark it is, how is it that ye have no faith? That is, in exercise, their faith was very small, it could hardly be discerned: some faith they had, as appears by their application to him, but it was very little. They had no faith in him, as sleeping, that he could deliver them; but had some little faith in him that he might, could he be awaked out of sleep; and for this Christ blames them; for he, as the eternal God, was as able to save them sleeping as waking. Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm : being awaked by his disciples, he raises his head from his pillow, stands up, and with a majestic voice, in an authoritative manner, showing some kind of resentment at the wind and sea, as if they had exceeded their commission; and the one had blown, and the other raged too much and too long; he rebukes them in such language as this, peace, be still; siwpa pefimwso , as it is in Mark, be silent, hold your peace, stop your mouth, put a bridle on it, as the words used signify; and go on no longer to threaten with shipwreck and loss of lives; upon which the wind ceased, the sea became calm, and the ship moved quietly on.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-27 - It is a
    comfort to those who go down to the sea in ships, and are ofte in perils there, to reflect that they have a Saviour to trust in an pray to, who knows what it is to be on the water, and to be in storm there. Those who are passing with Christ over the ocean of this world must expect storms. His human nature, like to ours in every thing but sin, was wearied, and he slept at this time to try the faith of his disciples. They, in their fear, came to their Master. Thus is it in soul; when lusts and temptations are swelling and raging, and God is as it were, asleep to it, this brings it to the brink of despair. The it cries for a word from his mouth, Lord Jesus, keep not silence to me or I am undone. Many that have true faith, are weak in it. Christ' disciples are apt to be disquieted with fears in a stormy day; to torment themselves that things are bad with them, and with disma thoughts that they will be worse. Great storms of doubt and fear in the soul, under the power of the spirit of bondage, sometimes end in wonderful calm, created and spoken by the Spirit of adoption. They wer astonished. They never saw a storm so turned at once into a perfec calm. He that can do this, can do any thing, which encourage confidence and comfort in him, in the most stormy day, within of without, Isa 26:4.
