13 He left Nazareth and settled in Capernaum, which lies alongside the sea in the area 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 This fulfilled what Isaiah the prophet said: 14 to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah:

16 the people who lived in the dark have seen a great light, and a light has come upon those who lived in the region and in shadow of death. 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 announce, "Change your hearts and lives! Here comes the kingdom of heaven!" 17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."

20 Right away, they left their nets and followed him. 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
