And he saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of thiem and were washing their nets. And going up into one of the ships that was Simon's, he desired him to draw back a little from the land. And sitting he taught the multitudes out of the slrip. Now when he had ceased to speak, he said to Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering, said to him. Master, we have laboured all the night, and have taken nothing: best at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had done this, they enclosed a very great multitude of fishes and their net broke. And they beckoned to their partners that were in the other ship, tha: they should come and help them. And they carne and filled both the ships, so that they were almost sinking. Which when Simon Peter saw, he fel! down at Jesus's knees, saying, Depart from me, fut i I am a sinful man, O Lorů. For he was wholly astopished, and all that were with him, at the draugti of the fishes which they had taken. And so went also James and John the sons of Zebedee, who were Simon's partners.

EPISTLE. Rom. vi. 3. Brethren: All we who are baptized in Christ Jesus, are baptized in his death. For we are buried together with him by baptism unto death; that as Christ is risen from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we also may walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection. Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sia may be destroyed, and that we may serve sin no longer. For he that is dead is justified from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live also together with Christ. Knowing that Cbrist, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have dominion over him. For in that he died to sin, he died once : but in that le liveth, he liveth unto God. So do you also reckw yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
