Catch of Fish
Simon gives Jesus a place to stand and preach
5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon,
Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
5:7 And they beckoned unto
partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
5:8 When Simon Peter saw
, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
5:9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
5:10 And so
also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon,
Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
5:11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
