Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Choose three important verses that speak to you today.
1. One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, great crowds pressed in on him to listen to the word of God.
2. He noticed two empty boats at the water's edge, for the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets.
3. Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there.
4. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon "Now go out where it is deeper and let down your nets to catch some fish."
5. "Master," Simon replied, "we worked hard all last night and didn't catch a thing. But if you say so, I'll let the nets down again."
6. And this time there nets were so full of fish they began to tear!
7. A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking.
8. When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, "Oh, Lord, please leave me — I'm too much of a sinner to be around you."
9. For he was awestruck by the number of fish they had caught, as were the others with him.
10. His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed.
Jesus replied to Simon, "Don't be afraid! From now on you'll be fishing for people!"
11. And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus.
Luke 5:1:11 NLT
