John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 1:17

And Jesus said unto them, come ye after me
Leave your worldly employments, and become my disciples,

and I will make you to become fishers of men:
which will be a much more excellent and honourable employment, as men, and the souls of men, are more excellent, and of more worth than fishes; (See Gill on Matthew 4:19).
