The stormy boat ride (Mt 8:24-8:24)

“A windstorm arose

On the sea.

Thus,

The boat

Was being swamped

By the waves.

But Jesus was asleep.”

 

καὶ ἰδοὺ σεισμὸς μέγας ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ, ὥστε τὸ πλοῖον καλύπτεσθαι ὑπὸ τῶν κυμάτων· αὐτὸς δὲ ἐκάθευδεν.

 

This stormy boat ride episode can be found in Mark, chapter 4:37-38, and Luke, chapter 8:23, somewhat the same as here.  A great severe storm, almost like an earthquake, arouse (καὶ ἰδοὺ σεισμὸς μέγας ἐγένετο), while they were at sea (ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ).  Their boat was being enveloped or swamped with surging waves (ὥστε τὸ πλοῖον καλύπτεσθαι ὑπὸ τῶν κυμάτων).  However, Jesus was asleep (αὐτὸς δὲ ἐκάθευδεν), while this storm was hitting their boat.
