water, for they fished for a living. 19Jesus
called out to them, “Come, follow me,
and I will show you how to fish for
people!” 20And they left their nets at
once and followed him.
21 A little farther up the shore he saw
two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee,
repairing their nets. And he called them
