12Now when Jesus heard that 1John had been taken into custody, 2He withdrew into Galilee ;
and leavingNazareth, He came and 3settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.
This was to fulfillwhat was spokenthroughIsaiah the prophet :
"4THE LAND OF ZEBULUN AND THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, aBY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE bGENTILES -
"5THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESSSAW A GREATLIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHTDAWNED."
176From that timeJesusbegan to cpreach and say, "7Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
188Now as Jesus was walking by 9the Sea of Galilee, He sawtwobrothers, 10Simon who was calledPeter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea ; for they were fishermen.
And He said to them, "dFollow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."20Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
21Going on from there He sawtwootherbrothers, e11James the son of Zebedee, and fJohn his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets ; and He called them.
22Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
