Luke 5:1–11

And ait came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by bthe lake of Gennesaret, cAnd saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he dsat down, and taught the people eout of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, fLaunch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, gMaster, ggwe have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, fthey inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their hpartners, which were in ithe other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, iihe fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, jDepart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were hpartners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, kthey forsook all, and followed him.
