And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of people.” Bible other translations

“Follow me.” See commentary on Mark 1:17. The word “follow” here is a different word from “follow” in Matthew 4:20. The disciple would follow behind the teacher in the biblical culture.

“I will make you fishers of people.” For more on Jesus’ metaphor about being fishers for people, see commentary on Mark 1:17.
