Bible: Lk 5:2-11

5:2 He 1  saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gotten out of them and were washing their nets. 5:3 He got into 2  one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then 3  Jesus 4  sat down 5  and taught the crowds from the boat. 5:4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and lower 6  your nets for a catch.” 5:5 Simon 7  answered, 8 Master, 9  we worked hard all night and caught nothing! But at your word 10  I will lower 11  the nets.” 5:6 When 12  they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets started to tear. 13  5:7 So 14  they motioned 15  to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they were about to sink. 16  5:8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesusknees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, 17  for I am a sinful man! 18  5:9 For 19  Peter 20  and all who were with him were astonished 21  at the catch of fish that they had taken, 5:10 and so were James and John, Zebedee’s sons, who were Simon’s business partners. 22  Then 23  Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on 24  you will be catching people.” 25  5:11 So 26  when they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed 27  him.
