New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
12 Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. 12 When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he returned to Galilee.
13 He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, 13 Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali--
14 so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: 14 to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah:
15 "Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles— 15 "Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, along the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles--
16 the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned." 16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
17 From that time Jesus began to proclaim, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near." 17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
18 As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. 18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
19 And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fish for people." 19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
21 As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. 21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them,
22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him. 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
