One day, when evening came, the Rabbi said to his talmidim, "Let us go over to the other side of the sea." Leaving the crowd around them, the talmidim took him along with them in the boat, just as he was; and other boats were with him. And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up.

The Rabbi himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, "Rabbi, do you not care that we are perishing?" And he got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Hush, be still." And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And he said to them, "Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?" They became very much afraid and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"
