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 Jesus’ knees, 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.
