When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
King James Bible
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
American Standard Version
And when they had done this, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their nets were breaking;
Young's Literal Translation
And having done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net was breaking,
Luke 5:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Their net brake - Or, began to break, διερῥηγνυτο, or, was likely to be broken. Had it broke, as our version states, they could have caught no fish. Grammarians give the following rule concerning words of this kind. Verba completiva inchoative intelligenda. Verbs which signify the accomplishment of a thing, are often to be understood as only signifying the beginning of that accomplishment. Raphelius gives some very pertinent examples of this out of Herodotus.
