In Mark 8:37-40 Jesus is received by two different groups of people with two very different results.
And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
I will seek your way, Speak of thy testimonies, and Also before kings will I confess my faith. And I will wait patiently for your provision, I will not be ashamed of my portion in this life.
Incline yourself to me; My heart is inclined to its appetites. Unto thy testimonies train me to walk, And show me the way of your discipline; Not to covetousness which leads me away from you.
