And they are waking him [perhaps: are shaking him until he is awake?] and they are saying to him: "Teacher, not is it of concern to you that we are [about to be] perishing?" 39 And after having been woken up [aor. pass. partc.], he gave a command to the wind and said to the sea: "Calm down! Be silent!" And/then ceased the wind and there was a great calm.40 And he said to them: "Why cowardly you all are? Not yet you all are having faith?" 41 And they feared a great fear and they were saying to one another: "Who, then, is this man that the wind and the sea are obeying [giving obedience to] (3 sg pres. act. indic.) him?"
