Luke 5:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

They beckoned (κατένευσαν)

The word originally means to nod assent, and so, generally, to make a sign. They made signs because of the distance of the other boat; hardly, as has been suggested, because they were too much amazed to speak.

Help (συλλαβέσθαι)

Lit., take hold with. Compare Philippians 4:3.

Began to sink (βυθίζεσθαι)

Only here and 1 Timothy 6:9, of drowning men in destruction. From βυθός, the depth. Wyc., they were almost drenched.
