    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:8

    Lo cual viendo Simn Pedro, se derrib de rodillas a Jess, diciendo: Aprtate de mí, Seor, porque soy hombre pecador.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 5:8

    Verse 8. Depart from me; for I am a
    sinful man] exelqe ap emou, Go out from me, i.e. from my boat. Peter was fully convinced that this draught of fish was a miraculous one; and that God himself had particularly interfered in this matter, whose presence and power he reverenced in the person of Jesus. But as he felt himself a sinner, he was afraid the Divine purity of Christ could not possibly endure him; therefore he wished for a separation from that power, which he was afraid might break forth and consume him. It seems to have been a received maxim among the Jews, that whoever had seen a particular manifestation of God should speedily die.

    Hence Jacob seemed astonished that his life should have been preserved, when he had seen God face to face, Gen. xxxii. 30. So the nobles of Israel saw God, and yet did eat and drink; for on them he had laid not his hand, i.e. to destroy them, though it appears to have been expected by them, in consequence of this discovery which he made of himself. See Exod. xxiv. 10, 11, and the notes there. This supposition of the Jews seems to have been founded on the authority of God himself, Exod. xxxiii. 20: There shall no man see my FACE and LIVE. So Moses, Deuteronomy v. x16: Who is there of all flesh that hath heard the voice of the living God, speaking out of the midst of the fire as we have, and LIVED? So Gideon expected to be immediately slain, because he had seen an angel of the Lord, and a miracle performed by him. See Judg. vi. 21-23. So likewise Manoah and his wife, Judges xiii. 22: We shall surely DIE, for we have SEEN GOD. These different passages sufficiently show in what sense these words of Peter are to be understood.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. When Simon Peter saw it , etc.] The multitude of fish that was taken, and both vessels filled with them, and the danger they were in of sinking, he fell down at Jesus' knees . The Arabic and Persic versions read, at his feet: he fell on his knees before him, and threw himself prostrate at his feet, as a worshipper of him, and a supplicant unto him: saying, depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord ; this he said, not as though the presence of Christ was burdensome, or disagreeable to him; but as one amazed at the greatness of the miracle wrought, and struck with the sense of the power of Christ, put forth therein; and with the greatness of his majesty so near him; and as conscious to himself of his own vileness and unworthiness to be in his presence; and so the Persic version adds, and which may serve as a comment, and am not worthy that thou shouldst be with me: he had much the same sense of things as the centurion had, ( Matthew 8:8) and when it is considered how gracious persons have been struck with awe and fear, and a consciousness of sin, weakness, and unworthiness, at the appearance of an angel, as Zacharias, ( Luke 1:12) and the shepherds, ( Luke 2:9) yea, at the presence of an holy man of God, as the widow of Sarepta at Elijah, saying much the same as Peter does here, ( 1 Kings 17:18) it need not be wondered at, that Peter should so express himself, in these circumstances.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - When
    Christ had done preaching, he told Peter to apply to the busines of his calling. Time spent on week days in public exercises of religion, need be but little hinderance in time, and may be grea furtherance to us in temper of mind, as to our worldly business. With what cheerfulness may we go about the duties of our calling, when we have been with God, and thus have our worldly employments sanctified to us by the word and prayer! Though they had taken nothing, yet Chris told them to let down their nets again. We must not abruptly quit ou callings because we have not the success in them we desire. We ar likely to speed well, when we follow the guidance of Christ's word. The draught of fishes was by a miracle. We must all, like Peter, ow ourselves to be sinful men, therefore Jesus Christ might justly depar from us. But we must beseech him that he would not depart; for woe unt us if the Saviour depart from sinners! Rather let us entreat him to come and dwell in our hearts by faith, that he may transform an cleanse them. These fishermen forsook all, and followed Jesus, when their calling prospered. When riches increase, and we are tempted to set our hearts upon them, then to quit them for Christ is thankworthy.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Fell down at
    Jesus' knees. Compare Sophocles, "Oedipus at Colonus," 1605:

    "Zeus from the dark depths thundered, and the girls Heard it, and shuddering, at their father's knees Falling, they wept."


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:8 {Fell down at Jesus' knees} (prosepesen tois gonasin iesou). Just like Peter, from extreme self-confidence and pride (verse #5) to abject humilation. But his impulse here was right and sincere. His confession was true. He was a sinful man.
