Luke 5:1-16 Darby’s Translation

The Great Catch of Fish

5 1  And it came to pass, as the crowd pressed on him to hear the word of God, that he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret: 2  and he saw two ships standing by the lake, but the fishermen, having come down from them, were washing their nets. 3  And getting into one of the ships, which was Simon's, he asked him to draw out a little from the land; and he sat down and taught the crowds out of the ship. 4  But when he ceased speaking, he said to Simon, Draw out into the deep [water] and let down your nets for a haul. 5  And Simon answering said to him, Master, having laboured through the whole night we have taken nothing, but at thy word I will let down the net. 6  And having done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes. And their net broke. 7  And they beckoned to their partners who were in the other ship to come and help them, and they came, and filled both the ships, so that they were sinking. 8  But Simon Peter, seeing it, fell at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord. 9  For astonishment had laid hold on him, and on all those who were with him, at the haul of fishes which they had taken; 10  and in like manner also on James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, Fear not; henceforth thou shalt be catching men. 11  And having run the ships on shore, leaving all they followed him.

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

12  And it came to pass as he was in one of the cities, that behold, there was a man full of leprosy, and seeing Jesus, falling upon his face, he besought him saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou art able to cleanse me. 13  And stretching forth his hand he touched him, saying, I will; be thou cleansed: and immediately the leprosy departed from him. 14  And he enjoined him to tell no one; but go, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing as Moses ordained, for a testimony to them. 15  But the report concerning him was spread abroad still more, and great crowds came together to hear, and to be healed from their infirmities. 16  And he withdrew himself, and was about in the desert [places] and praying.
