[1-4]: Cf. Pétr 5/8-9: Jesus retti þa sina signaðu hond i mot honum ok reisti hann upp ‘Jesus then stretched out his blessed hand towards him and raised him up’; Matt. XIV.31. St. 16/5-8 and st. 17/1-4 may originally have formed one st. (see next Note). — [5-8]: Cf. Pétr 4/4-6: Þeir fyrirletu þegar netin ok batinn fylgiandi honum með o᷎llu þaðan af ‘They immediately abandoned the nets and the boat, following him completely from then onward’; Matt. IV.20: at illi continuo relictis retibus secuti sunt eum ‘and they immediately leaving their nets, followed him’. This helmingr looks as though it should follow st. 15.
