5 Revised Standard Version Passage

1While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennes'aret.The Calling of the First Disciples Lk.5.1-11 (Capernaum) | Mt.4.18-22 | Mk.1.16-20
2And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 
3Getting 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. 
4And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." 
5And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets." 
6And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking, 
7they 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. 
8But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord." 
9For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had taken; 
10and so also were James and John, sons of Zeb'edee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men." 
11And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
