5 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

5 1One day as he stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and the people crowded upon him to listen to the word of God,The Calling of the First Disciples Lk.5.1-11 (Capernaum) | Mt.4.18-22 | Mk.1.16-20Ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ τὸν ὀχλον ἐπικεῖσθαι αὐτῷ καὶ ἀκούειν τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ αὐτὸς ἦν ἑστὼς παρὰ τὴν λίμνην Γεννησαρέτ,
2he noticed two boats lying at the water's edge; the fishermen had come ashore and were washing their nets. καὶ εἶδεν δύο πλοῖα ἑστῶτα παρὰ τὴν λίμνην· οἱ δὲ ἀλιεῖς ἀπ' αὐτῶν ἀποβάντες ἐπλυνον τὰ δίκτυα.
3He got into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore; then he went on teaching the crowds from his seat in the boat. ἐμβὰς δὲ εἰς ἓν τῶν πλοίων, ὃ ἦν Σίμωνος, ἠρώτησεν αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἐπαναγαγεῖν ὀλίγον, καθίσας δὲ ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου ἐδίδασκεν τοὺς ὀχλους.
4When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.' ὡς δὲ ἐπαύσατο λαλῶν, εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν Σίμωνα, Ἐπανάγαγε εἰς τὸ βάθος καὶ χαλάσατε τὰ δίκτυα ὑμῶν εἰς ἀγραν.
5Simon answered, 'Master, we were hard at work all night and caught nothing at all; but if you say so, I will let down the nets.' καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς Σίμων εἶπεν, Ἐπιστάτα, δῖ ὁλης νυκτὸς κοπιάσαντες οὐδὲν ἐλάβομεν, ἐπὶ δὲ τῷ ῥήματί σου χαλάσω τὰ δίκτυα.
6They did so and made a big haul of fish; and their nets began to split. καὶ τοῦτο ποιήσαντες συνέκλεισαν πλῆθος ἰχθύων πολύ, διερρήσσετο δὲ τὰ δίκτυα αὐτῶν.
7So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. This they did, and loaded both boats to the point of sinking. καὶ κατένευσαν τοῖς μετόχοις ἐν τῷ ἑτέρῳ πλοίῳ τοῦ ἐλθόντας συλλαβέσθαι αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἦλθον, καὶ ἐπλησαν ἀμφότερα τὰ πλοῖα ὡστε βυθίζεσθαι αὐτά.
8When Simon saw what had happened he fell at Jesus's knees and said, 'Go, Lord, leave me, sinner that I am!' ἰδὼν δὲ Σίμων Πέτρος προσέπεσεν τοῖς γόνασιν Ἰησοῦ λέγων, Ἔξελθε ἀπ' ἐμοῦ, ὅτι ἀνὴρ ἀμαρτωλός εἰμι, κύριε·
9For he and all his companions were amazed at the catch they had made; θάμβος γὰρ περιέσχεν αὐτὸν καὶ πάντας τοὺς σὺν αὐτῷ ἐπὶ τῇ ἀγρᾳ τῶν ἰχθύων ὧν συνέλαβον,
10so too were his partners James and John, Zebedee's sons. 'Do not be afraid,' said Jesus to Simon; 'from now on you will be catching men.' ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ Ἰάκωβον καὶ Ἰωάννην υἱοὺς Ζεβεδαίου, οἳ ἦσαν κοινωνοὶ τῷ Σίμωνι. καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν Σίμωνα ὁ Ἰησοῦς, μὴ φοβοῦ· ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἀνθρώπους ἐσῃ ζωγρῶν.
11As soon as they had brought the boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
 καὶ καταγαγόντες τὰ πλοῖα ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἀφέντες πάντα ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ.
