For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
 

5:4 draught. This Greek word (different from that in Matthew 15:17) refers to a “draw” or “draft” of fishes.

5:6 fishes. This was not necessarily a miracle of creation (like the multiplication of the loaves and fishes at the feeding of the five thousand), but rather a miracle of providence, whereby the omniscient Lord understood and controlled the time and place where the fish would be. Compare John 21:6-8.
