Matthew 14:23-34 BBE
(23) And after he had sent the people away, he went up into the mountain by himself for prayer: and when evening was come, he was there by himself. (24) But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, and was troubled by the waves: for the wind was against them. (25) And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. (26) And when they saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they gave cries of fear. (27) But straight away Jesus said to them, Take heart; it is I, have no fear. (28) And Peter, answering, said to him, Lord, if it is you, give me the order to come to you on the water. (29) And he said, Come. And Peter got out of the boat, and walking on the water, went to Jesus. (30) But when he saw the wind he was in fear and, starting to go down, he gave a cry, saying, Help, Lord. (31) And straight away Jesus put out his hand and took a grip of him, and said to him, O man of little faith, why were you in doubt? (32) And when they had got into the boat, the wind went down. (33) And those who were in the boat gave him worship, saying, Truly you are the Son of God. (34) And when they had gone across, they came to land at Gennesaret.

Matthew 14:23-34 CEV
(23) Then he went up on a mountain where he could be alone and pray. Later that evening, he was still there. (24) By this time the boat was a long way from the shore. It was going against the wind and was being tossed around by the waves. (25) A little while before morning, Jesus came walking on the water toward his disciples. (26) When they saw him, they thought he was a ghost. They were terrified and started screaming. (27) At once, Jesus said to them, "Don't worry! I am Jesus. Don't be afraid." (28) Peter replied, "Lord, if it is really you, tell me to come to you on the water." (29) "Come on!" Jesus said. Peter then got out of the boat and started walking on the water toward him. (30) But when Peter saw how strong the wind was, he was afraid and started sinking. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted. (31) Right away, Jesus reached out his hand. He helped Peter up and said, "You surely don't have much faith. Why do you doubt?" (32) When Jesus and Peter got into the boat, the wind died down. (33) The men in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, "You really are the Son of God!" (34) Jesus and his disciples crossed the lake and came to shore near the town of Gennesaret.

Matthew 14:23-34 Darby
(23) And having dismissed the crowds, he went up into the mountain apart to pray. And when even was come, he was alone there, (24) but the ship was already in the middle of the sea tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. (25) But in the fourth watch of the night he went off to them, walking on the sea. (26) And the disciples, seeing him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, It is an apparition. And they cried out through fear. (27) But Jesus immediately spoke to them, saying, Take courage; it is *I*: be not afraid. (28) And Peter answering him said, Lord, if it be *thou*, command me to come to thee upon the waters. (29) And he said, Come. And Peter, having descended from the ship, walked upon the waters to go to Jesus. (30) But seeing the wind strong he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. (31) And immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt? (32) And when they had gone up into the ship, the wind fell. (33) But those in the ship came and did homage to him, saying, Truly thou art God's Son. (34) And having crossed over they came to the land of Gennesaret.

Since we don't speak those languages, we rely on those who have come before and made the effort to translate those texts into English for us. Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
