And when they had done this
Had put the ship out further to sea, and had let down their net:
they enclosed a great multitude of fish;
in their net, which by the secret divine power of Christ, were gathered together just in that place, where by his order they cast the net:
and their net brake;
with the weight and number, of the fishes, yet not so as to let the fish out; the Arabic version reads, "it was within a little that their nets were broke": they were just upon breaking, the draught was so numerous, the struggling so great, and the weight so heavy.
