eight days, again his disciples were

came Jesus, the doors being shut, and

them, I go a fishing. They fay unto
him, We also go with thee. They went
forth, and entred into a ship immediate-
ly; and that night they caught nothing.
But when the morning was now come, 4.
Jesus stood on the shore; but the disci-

Jesus faith unto them, Children, have
ye any meat? They answered him, No.
And he faith unto them, Caft the net 6,
on the right side of the ship, and ye shall
find. They cast therefore, and now
they were not able to draw it for the
multitude of fishes. Therefore that 7.
difciple whom Jesus loved, faith unto
Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Si-
mon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
he girt his fishers coat unto him, (for
he was naked) and did cast himself into
the sea. And the other disciples came 8.
in a little ship (for they were not far
from land, but as it were two hundred
cubits) dragging the net with fishes.
As soon then as they were come to
land, they saw a fire of coals there, and

unto them, Bring of the fish which

bave now caught. Simon Peter went 11,

of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and
three: and for all there were so many,
yet was not the net broken, Jesus faith 12.
