The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 4:22
And they immediately left the ship…
expressed here than before, for they not only left their nets, but
their ship too; which was of much more value; nay, even "their father"
also, "with the hired servants", (Mark 1:20) and so complied with
the call of Christ to his people, (Psalms 45:10) and thereby proved,
that they were sincerely his followers, (Luke 14:26) and might
expect the gracious promise of Christ to be made good unto them,
(Matthew 19:28,29) .
