        1 While the people pressed
          upon him
          to hear the word of God,
18 As he walked 16 And passing along   he was standing
  by the Sea of Galilee,   by the Sea of Galilee,   by the lake of Gennesaret.
  he saw two brothers,   he saw 2 And he saw two boats
          by the lake;
          but the fishermen* had gone
          out of them
          and were washing their nets.
        3 Getting into one of the boats,
  Simon who is called Peter   Simon   which was Simon's,
  and Andrew   and Andrew    
  his brother,   the brother of Simon    
          he asked him
          to put out a little from the land.
          And he sat down
          and taught the people
          from the boat.
        4 And when he had ceased
          he said to Simon,
          "Put out into the deep
  casting a net into the sea;   casting a net in the sea;   and let down your nets
          for a catch."
  for they were fishermen.*   for they were fishermen.*    
        5 And Simon answered,
          "Master, we toiled all night
          and took nothing!
          But at your word 
          I will let down the nets."
        6 And when they had done this,
          they enclosed a great shoal
          of fish;
          and as their nets were breaking,
        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.
        8 But when Simon Peter saw it,
          he fell down at Jesus' knees,
          "Depart from me,
          for I am a sinful man, O Lord."
        9 For he was astonished,
          and all that were with him,
          at the catch of fish
          which they had taken;
        10 and so also were James
          and John,*
          sons of Zebedee,*
          who were partners with Simon.
19 And he said to them, 17 And Jesus said to them, 11 And Jesus said to Simon,
          "Do not be afraid;
  "Follow me,   "Follow me,    
  and I will make you   and I will make you   henceforth you will be
  fishers of men."   become fishers of men."   catching men."
20 Immediately 18 And immediately   And when they had brought
          their boats to land,
  they left their nets   they left their nets   they left everything
  and followed him.   and followed him.   and followed him.
21 And going on 19 And going on    
  from there   a little farther,    
  he saw two other brothers,   he saw    
  James the son of Zebedee*   James the son of Zebedee*    
  and John* his brother,   and John* his brother,    
  in the boat   who were in their boat    
  with Zebedee their father,        
  mending their nets,   mending the nets.    
  and 20 And immediately *    
  he called them.   he called them;    
22 Immediately *   and    
  they left the boat *   they left

  and followed him.   and followed him.
