When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."1
Simon answered, "Master,2 we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything.3 But because you say so, I will let down the nets."
When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.4
