1 S. Peter 3. 8
BE ye all of one mind, having compassion one of
love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous; not rendering evil for
or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are
thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that
will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from
and his lips that they speak no guile: let him eschew evil, and do
let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are
the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face
the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will

S. Luke 5. 1
IT came to pass, that, as the people pressed

ships standing by the lake; but the fishermen were gone out of them,
were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships,

land: and he sat down, and taught the people out of the boat. Now
when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the
and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said
him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing;
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.
they beckoned unto their partners which were in the other ship, that
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
For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of
fishes which they had taken; and so was also James, and John, the sons
of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto
Fear not, from henceforth thou shalt catch men. And when they had
brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
