"As he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the shiP. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a draught; and Simon answering, said unto him, master we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing; nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
