katapi HOME Luke 5:1-11 - The Calling of the First Disciples  Lk.5.1-11 (Capernaum)- Mt.4.18-22, Mk.1.16-20 | KNSB Contents | notes

5 1 While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret. 5 2 And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 5 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 5 4 And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." 5 5 And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets." 5 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking, 5 7 they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 5 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, 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 catch of fish which they had taken; 5 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men." 5 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
