The miraculous draught of Fishes.
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.
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes:
and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which
were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came,
and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter
saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for
I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was astonished, and all that were with
him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken. (KJV)
