down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be
42:021:025 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in
the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with
perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
42:021:026 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after
those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of
heaven shall be shaken.
42:021:027 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with
power and great glory.
42:021:028 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and
lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
42:021:029 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all
42:021:030 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves
that summer is now nigh at hand.
42:021:031 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye
that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
42:021:032 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away,
till all be fulfilled.
42:021:033 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass
42:021:034 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be
overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of
this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
42:021:035 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the
face of the whole earth.
42:021:036 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted
worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and
to stand before the Son of man.
42:021:037 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at
night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the
mount of Olives.
42:021:038 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the
temple, for to hear him.
42:022:001 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called
42:022:002 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill
him; for they feared the people.
42:022:003 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the
number of the twelve.
42:022:004 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and
captains, how he might betray him unto them.
42:022:005 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
42:022:006 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto
them in the absence of the multitude.
42:022:007 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must
42:022:008 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the
passover, that we may eat.
42:022:009 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
42:022:010 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the
city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water;
follow him into the house where he entereth in.
42:022:011 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master
saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat
the passover with my disciples?
42:022:012 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make
42:022:013 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they
made ready the passover.
42:022:014 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve
apostles with him.
42:022:015 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this
passover with you before I suffer:
42:022:016 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it
be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
42:022:017 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and
divide it among yourselves:
42:022:018 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine,
until the kingdom of God shall come.
42:022:019 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave
unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you:
this do in remembrance of me.
42:022:020 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the
new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
42:022:021 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on
42:022:022 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe
unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
42:022:023 And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it
was that should do this thing.
42:022:024 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should
be accounted the greatest.
42:022:025 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise
lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them
are called benefactors.
42:022:026 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let
him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth
42:022:027 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that
serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as
he that serveth.
42:022:028 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.
42:022:029 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed
42:022:030 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit
on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
42:022:031 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to
have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
42:022:032 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when
thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
42:022:033 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both
into prison, and to death.
42:022:034 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this
day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
42:022:035 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and
scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
42:022:036 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him
take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword,
let him sell his garment, and buy one.
42:022:037 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be
accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the
transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
42:022:038 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said
unto them, It is enough.
42:022:039 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of
Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
42:022:040 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye
enter not into temptation.
42:022:041 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and
kneeled down, and prayed,
42:022:042 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
42:022:043 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven,
42:022:044 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat
was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the
42:022:045 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his
disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
42:022:046 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter
42:022:047 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was
called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew
near unto Jesus to kiss him.
42:022:048 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man
with a kiss?
42:022:049 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they
said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
42:022:050 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut
off his right ear.
42:022:051 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he
touched his ear, and healed him.
42:022:052 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the
temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come
out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
42:022:053 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no
hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of
42:022:054 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high
priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.
42:022:055 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and
were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
42:022:056 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and
earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with
42:022:057 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
42:022:058 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art
also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
42:022:059 And about the space of one hour after another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him:
for he is a Galilaean.
42:022:060 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And
immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
42:022:061 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter
remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him,
Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
42:022:062 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
42:022:063 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
42:022:064 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the
face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote
42:022:065 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
42:022:066 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the
chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into
their council, saying,
42:022:067 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell
you, ye will not believe:
42:022:068 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
42:022:069 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the
power of God.
42:022:070 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said
unto them, Ye say that I am.
42:022:071 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we
ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
42:023:001 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto
42:023:002 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow
perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to
Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.
42:023:003 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews?
And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
42:023:004 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I
find no fault in this man.
42:023:005 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the
people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee
to this place.
42:023:006 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a
42:023:007 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's
jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at
Jerusalem at that time.
42:023:008 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was
desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard
many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle
done by him.
42:023:009 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him
42:023:010 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused
42:023:011 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked
him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to
42:023:012 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together:
for before they were at enmity between themselves.
42:023:013 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and
the rulers and the people,
42:023:014 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that
perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him
before you, have found no fault in this man touching those
things whereof ye accuse him:
42:023:015 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing
worthy of death is done unto him.
42:023:016 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
42:023:017 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
42:023:018 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man,
and release unto us Barabbas:
42:023:019 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder,
was cast into prison.)
42:023:020 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to
42:023:021 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
42:023:022 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he
done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore
chastise him, and let him go.
42:023:023 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he
might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief
42:023:024 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
42:023:025 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was
cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered
Jesus to their will.
42:023:026 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a
Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the
cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
42:023:027 And there followed him a great company of people, and of
women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
42:023:028 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep
not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
42:023:029 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say,
Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the
paps which never gave suck.
42:023:030 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and
to the hills, Cover us.
42:023:031 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be
done in the dry?
42:023:032 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be
put to death.
42:023:033 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary,
there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the
right hand, and the other on the left.
42:023:034 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what
they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
42:023:035 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them
derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if
he be Christ, the chosen of God.
42:023:036 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering
42:023:037 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
42:023:038 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of
Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
42:023:039 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him,
saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
42:023:040 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou
fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
42:023:041 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our
deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42:023:042 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest
into thy kingdom.
42:023:043 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt
thou be with me in paradise.
42:023:044 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over
all the earth until the ninth hour.
42:023:045 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent
in the midst.
42:023:046 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father,
into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he
gave up the ghost.
42:023:047 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God,
saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
42:023:048 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding
the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
42:023:049 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from
Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
42:023:050 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and
he was a good man, and a just:
42:023:051 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;)
he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself
waited for the kingdom of God.
42:023:052 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
42:023:053 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a
sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was
42:023:054 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
42:023:055 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed
after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
42:023:056 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and
rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
42:024:001 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning,
they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they
had prepared, and certain others with them.
42:024:002 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
42:024:003 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
42:024:004 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout,
behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
42:024:005 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the
earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the
42:024:006 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you
when he was yet in Galilee,
42:024:007 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of
sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
42:024:008 And they remembered his words,
42:024:009 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things
unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
42:024:010 It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of
James, and other women that were with them, which told these
things unto the apostles.
42:024:011 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they
believed them not.
42:024:012 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping
down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and
departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
42:024:013 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village
called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore
42:024:014 And they talked together of all these things which had
42:024:015 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and
reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
42:024:016 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
42:024:017 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these
that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
42:024:018 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said
unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not
known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
42:024:019 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him,
Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in
deed and word before God and all the people:
42:024:020 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be
condemned to death, and have crucified him.
42:024:021 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed
Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since
these things were done.
42:024:022 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished,
which were early at the sepulchre;
42:024:023 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they
had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was
42:024:024 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre,
and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw
42:024:025 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe
all that the prophets have spoken:
42:024:026 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter
into his glory?
42:024:027 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto
them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
42:024:028 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he
made as though he would have gone further.
42:024:029 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is
toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to
tarry with them.
42:024:030 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took
bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
42:024:031 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished
out of their sight.
42:024:032 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within
us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to
us the scriptures?
42:024:033 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and
found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with
42:024:034 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
42:024:035 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was
known of them in breaking of bread.
42:024:036 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of
them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
42:024:037 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they
had seen a spirit.
42:024:038 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do
thoughts arise in your hearts?
42:024:039 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me,
and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me
42:024:040 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his
42:024:041 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said
unto them, Have ye here any meat?
42:024:042 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an
42:024:043 And he took it, and did eat before them.
42:024:044 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto
you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be
fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the
prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
42:024:045 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand
42:024:046 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved
Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
42:024:047 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached
in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
42:024:048 And ye are witnesses of these things.
42:024:049 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but
tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with
power from on high.
42:024:050 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his
hands, and blessed them.
42:024:051 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from
them, and carried up into heaven.
42:024:052 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great
42:024:053 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God.
Book 43 John
43:001:001 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God.
43:001:002 The same was in the beginning with God.
43:001:003 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing
made that was made.
43:001:004 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
43:001:005 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness
comprehended it not.
43:001:006 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
43:001:007 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,
that all men through him might believe.
43:001:008 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that
43:001:009 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh
into the world.
43:001:010 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the
world knew him not.
43:001:011 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
43:001:012 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
43:001:013 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of man, but of God.
43:001:014 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and truth.
43:001:015 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of
whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me:
for he was before me.
43:001:016 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
43:001:017 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by
43:001:018 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which
is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
43:001:019 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and
Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
43:001:020 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the
43:001:021 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I
am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
43:001:022 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an
answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
43:001:023 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make
straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
43:001:024 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
43:001:025 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou
then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that
43:001:026 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there
standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
43:001:027 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose
shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
43:001:028 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John
43:001:029 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the
43:001:030 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is
preferred before me: for he was before me.
43:001:031 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to
Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
43:001:032 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from
heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
43:001:033 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water,
the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit
descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which
baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
43:001:034 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
43:001:035 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
43:001:036 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb
43:001:037 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed
43:001:038 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto
them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to
say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
43:001:039 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he
dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth
43:001:040 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
43:001:041 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We
have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the
43:001:042 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he
said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called
Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
43:001:043 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and
findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
43:001:044 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
43:001:045 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found
him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write,
Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
43:001:046 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out
of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
43:001:047 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an
Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
43:001:048 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus
answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee,
when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
43:001:049 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son
of God; thou art the King of Israel.
43:001:050 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I
saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see
greater things than these.
43:001:051 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God
ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
43:002:001 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and
the mother of Jesus was there:
43:002:002 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
43:002:003 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him,
They have no wine.
43:002:004 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine
hour is not yet come.
43:002:005 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto
you, do it.
43:002:006 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the
manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three
43:002:007 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim.
43:002:008 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the
governor of the feast. And they bare it.
43:002:009 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made
wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew
the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the
43:002:010 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth
good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is
worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
43:002:011 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
43:002:012 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and
his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not
43:002:013 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to
43:002:014 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and
doves, and the changers of money sitting:
43:002:015 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them
all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured
out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
43:002:016 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence;
make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
43:002:017 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of
thine house hath eaten me up.
43:002:018 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest
thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
43:002:019 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in
three days I will raise it up.
43:002:020 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in
building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
43:002:021 But he spake of the temple of his body.
43:002:022 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples
remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed
the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
43:002:023 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast
day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles
which he did.
43:002:024 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew
43:002:025 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew
what was in man.
43:003:001 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of
43:003:002 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we
know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do
these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
43:003:003 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of
43:003:004 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is
old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and
43:003:005 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God.
43:003:006 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is
born of the Spirit is spirit.
43:003:007 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
43:003:008 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound
thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it
goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
43:003:009 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
43:003:010 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel,
and knowest not these things?
43:003:011 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and
testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
43:003:012 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how
shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
43:003:013 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down
from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
43:003:014 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so
must the Son of man be lifted up:
43:003:015 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
43:003:016 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life.
43:003:017 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.
43:003:018 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
43:003:019 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their
deeds were evil.
43:003:020 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh
to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
43:003:021 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds
may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
43:003:022 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land
of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
43:003:023 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because
there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
43:003:024 For John was not yet cast into prison.
43:003:025 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples
and the Jews about purifying.
43:003:026 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was
with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold,
the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
43:003:027 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it
be given him from heaven.
43:003:028 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the
Christ, but that I am sent before him.
43:003:029 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of
the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth
greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy
therefore is fulfilled.
43:003:030 He must increase, but I must decrease.
43:003:031 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the
earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh
from heaven is above all.
43:003:032 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no
man receiveth his testimony.
43:003:033 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that
God is true.
43:003:034 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God
giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
43:003:035 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his
43:003:036 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he
that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath
of God abideth on him.
43:004:001 When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that
Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
43:004:002 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
43:004:003 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
43:004:004 And he must needs go through Samaria.
43:004:005 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar,
near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son
43:004:006 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied
with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the
43:004:007 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith
unto her, Give me to drink.
43:004:008 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
43:004:009 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou,
being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?
for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
43:004:010 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of
God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou
wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee
43:004:011 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with,
and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living
43:004:012 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the
well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his
43:004:013 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water shall thirst again:
43:004:014 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him
shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall
be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
43:004:015 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I
thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
43:004:016 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
43:004:017 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said
unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
43:004:018 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is
not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
43:004:019 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a
43:004:020 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in
Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
43:004:021 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when
ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem,
worship the Father.
43:004:022 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for
salvation is of the Jews.
43:004:023 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers
shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the
Father seeketh such to worship him.
43:004:024 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in
spirit and in truth.
43:004:025 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is
called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
43:004:026 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
43:004:027 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked
with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why
talkest thou with her?
43:004:028 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the
city, and saith to the men,
43:004:029 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is
not this the Christ?
43:004:030 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
43:004:031 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master,
43:004:032 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
43:004:033 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man
brought him ought to eat?
43:004:034 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that
sent me, and to finish his work.
43:004:035 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh
harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look
on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
43:004:036 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto
life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may
43:004:037 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another
43:004:038 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other
men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
43:004:039 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for
the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that
ever I did.
43:004:040 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him
that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
43:004:041 And many more believed because of his own word;
43:004:042 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy
saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is
indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43:004:043 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
43:004:044 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in
his own country.
43:004:045 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received
him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at
the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
43:004:046 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the
water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was
sick at Capernaum.
43:004:047 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee,
he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down,
and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
43:004:048 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye
will not believe.
43:004:049 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
43:004:050 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man
believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went
43:004:051 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told
him, saying, Thy son liveth.
43:004:052 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And
they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever
43:004:053 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which
Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and
his whole house.
43:004:054 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was
come out of Judaea into Galilee.
43:005:001 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to
43:005:002 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is
called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
43:005:003 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind,
halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
43:005:004 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and
troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling
of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease
43:005:005 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and
43:005:006 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long
time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
43:005:007 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the
water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am
coming, another steppeth down before me.
43:005:008 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
43:005:009 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed,
and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
43:005:010 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the
sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
43:005:011 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto
me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
43:005:012 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee,
Take up thy bed, and walk?
43:005:013 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had
conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
43:005:014 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him,
Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing
come unto thee.
43:005:015 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which
had made him whole.
43:005:016 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay
him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
43:005:017 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I
43:005:018 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not
only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his
Father, making himself equal with God.
43:005:019 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth
the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also
doeth the Son likewise.
43:005:020 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that
himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these,
that ye may marvel.
43:005:021 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them;
even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
43:005:022 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment
unto the Son:
43:005:023 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the
Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father
which hath sent him.
43:005:024 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and
believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and
shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death
43:005:025 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now
is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and
they that hear shall live.
43:005:026 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to
the Son to have life in himself;
43:005:027 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because
he is the Son of man.
43:005:028 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all
that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
43:005:029 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the
resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation.
43:005:030 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the
will of the Father which hath sent me.
43:005:031 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
43:005:032 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that
the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
43:005:033 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
43:005:034 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say,
that ye might be saved.
43:005:035 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for
a season to rejoice in his light.
43:005:036 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works
which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that
I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
43:005:037 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness
of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen
43:005:038 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath
sent, him ye believe not.
43:005:039 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal
life: and they are they which testify of me.
43:005:040 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
43:005:041 I receive not honour from men.
43:005:042 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43:005:043 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if
another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
43:005:044 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and
seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
43:005:045 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is
one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
43:005:046 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he
wrote of me.
43:005:047 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my
43:006:001 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which
is the sea of Tiberias.
43:006:002 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his
miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
43:006:003 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his
43:006:004 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
43:006:005 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company
come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy
bread, that these may eat?
43:006:006 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he
43:006:007 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
43:006:008 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith
43:006:009 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two
small fishes: but what are they among so many?
43:006:010 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much
grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five
43:006:011 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he
distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that
were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they
43:006:012 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up
the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
43:006:013 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve
baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which
remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
43:006:014 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into
43:006:015 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take
him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a
mountain himself alone.
43:006:016 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the
43:006:017 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward
Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to
43:006:018 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
43:006:019 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty
furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh
unto the ship: and they were afraid.
43:006:020 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
43:006:021 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and
immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
43:006:022 The day following, when the people which stood on the other
side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save
that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus
went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his
disciples were gone away alone;
43:006:023 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the
place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given
43:006:024 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there,
neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to
Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
43:006:025 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they
said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
43:006:026 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye
did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
43:006:027 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat
which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man
shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
43:006:028 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work
the works of God?
43:006:029 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God,
that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
43:006:030 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then,
that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
43:006:031 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He
gave them bread from heaven to eat.
43:006:032 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father
giveth you the true bread from heaven.
43:006:033 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and
giveth life unto the world.
43:006:034 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
43:006:035 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that
cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me
shall never thirst.
43:006:036 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe
43:006:037 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that
cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
43:006:038 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the
will of him that sent me.
43:006:039 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all
which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise
it up again at the last day.
43:006:040 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which
seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting
life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
43:006:041 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread
which came down from heaven.
43:006:042 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose
father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I
came down from heaven?
43:006:043 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among
43:006:044 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me
draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
43:006:045 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of
God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of
the Father, cometh unto me.
43:006:046 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of
God, he hath seen the Father.
43:006:047 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath
43:006:048 I am that bread of life.
43:006:049 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
43:006:050 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man
may eat thereof, and not die.
43:006:051 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man
eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that
I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the
43:006:052 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can
this man give us his flesh to eat?
43:006:053 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his
blood, ye have no life in you.
43:006:054 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
43:006:055 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
43:006:056 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in
me, and I in him.
43:006:057 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father:
so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
43:006:058 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your
fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this
bread shall live for ever.
43:006:059 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in
43:006:060 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this,
said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
43:006:061 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
43:006:062 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was
43:006:063 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are
43:006:064 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew
from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who
should betray him.
43:006:065 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come
unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
43:006:066 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no
more with him.
43:006:067 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
43:006:068 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou
hast the words of eternal life.
43:006:069 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son
of the living God.
43:006:070 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of
you is a devil?
43:006:071 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was
that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
43:007:001 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not
walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
43:007:002 Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.
43:007:003 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go
into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that
43:007:004 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he
himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things,
shew thyself to the world.
43:007:005 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
43:007:006 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your
time is alway ready.
43:007:007 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify
of it, that the works thereof are evil.
43:007:008 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for
my time is not yet full come.
43:007:009 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in
43:007:010 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto
the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
43:007:011 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
43:007:012 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him:
for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he
deceiveth the people.
43:007:013 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
43:007:014 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the
temple, and taught.
43:007:015 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters,
having never learned?
43:007:016 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but
his that sent me.
43:007:017 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine,
whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
43:007:018 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that
seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no
unrighteousness is in him.
43:007:019 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth
the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
43:007:020 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth
about to kill thee?
43:007:021 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and
ye all marvel.
43:007:022 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is
of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day
circumcise a man.
43:007:023 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law
of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I
have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
43:007:024 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous
43:007:025 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they
seek to kill?
43:007:026 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do
the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
43:007:027 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh,
no man knoweth whence he is.
43:007:028 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both
know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself,
but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
43:007:029 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
43:007:030 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him,
because his hour was not yet come.
43:007:031 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ
cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man
43:007:032 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things
concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent
officers to take him.
43:007:033 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you,
and then I go unto him that sent me.
43:007:034 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am,
thither ye cannot come.
43:007:035 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that
we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the
Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
43:007:036 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me,
and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
43:007:037 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and
cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and
43:007:038 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of
his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
43:007:039 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on
him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;
because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
43:007:040 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying,
said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
43:007:041 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ
come out of Galilee?
43:007:042 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of
David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
43:007:043 So there was a division among the people because of him.
43:007:044 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands
43:007:045 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and
they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
43:007:046 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
43:007:047 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
43:007:048 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
43:007:049 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
43:007:050 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night,
being one of them,)
43:007:051 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what
43:007:052 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee?
Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
43:007:053 And every man went unto his own house.
43:008:001 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
43:008:002 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and
all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught
43:008:003 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
43:008:004 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery,
in the very act.
43:008:005 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned:
but what sayest thou?
43:008:006 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse
him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the
ground, as though he heard them not.
43:008:007 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and
said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him
first cast a stone at her.
43:008:008 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
43:008:009 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own
conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even
unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman
standing in the midst.
43:008:010 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman,
he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath
no man condemned thee?
43:008:011 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I
condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
43:008:012 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of
the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.
43:008:013 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of
thyself; thy record is not true.
43:008:014 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of
myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and
whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I
43:008:015 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
43:008:016 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone,
but I and the Father that sent me.
43:008:017 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men
43:008:018 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent
me beareth witness of me.
43:008:019 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered,
Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye
should have known my Father also.
43:008:020 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the
temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet
43:008:021 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall
seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot
43:008:022 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith,
Whither I go, ye cannot come.
43:008:023 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above:
ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
43:008:024 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for
if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
43:008:025 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto
them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
43:008:026 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that
sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I
have heard of him.
43:008:027 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
43:008:028 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of
man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of
myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
43:008:029 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me
alone; for I do always those things that please him.
43:008:030 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
43:008:031 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye
continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
43:008:032 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
43:008:033 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in
bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
43:008:034 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever
committeth sin is the servant of sin.
43:008:035 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son
43:008:036 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free
43:008:037 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me,
because my word hath no place in you.
43:008:038 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that
which ye have seen with your father.
43:008:039 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus
saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do
the works of Abraham.
43:008:040 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the
truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
43:008:041 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be
not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
43:008:042 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love
me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of
myself, but he sent me.
43:008:043 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot
hear my word.
43:008:044 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father
ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode
not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he
speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and
the father of it.
43:008:045 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
43:008:046 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why
do ye not believe me?
43:008:047 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them
not, because ye are not of God.
43:008:048 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well
that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
43:008:049 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father,
and ye do dishonour me.
43:008:050 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and
43:008:051 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he
shall never see death.
43:008:052 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a
devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If
a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
43:008:053 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and
the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
43:008:054 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it
is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is
43:008:055 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should
say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I
know him, and keep his saying.
43:008:056 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and
43:008:057 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old,
and hast thou seen Abraham?
43:008:058 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before
Abraham was, I am.
43:008:059 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid
himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst
of them, and so passed by.
43:009:001 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his
43:009:002 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this
man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
43:009:003 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents:
but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
43:009:004 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh, when no man can work.
43:009:005 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
43:009:006 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay
of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with
43:009:007 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is
by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and
washed, and came seeing.
43:009:008 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him
that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
43:009:009 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he
said, I am he.
43:009:010 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
43:009:011 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay,
and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of
Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
43:009:012 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
43:009:013 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
43:009:014 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and
opened his eyes.
43:009:015 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received
his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and
I washed, and do see.
43:009:016 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God,
because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a
man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a
division among them.
43:009:017 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him,
that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
43:009:018 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been
blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents
of him that had received his sight.
43:009:019 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was
born blind? how then doth he now see?
43:009:020 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our
son, and that he was born blind:
43:009:021 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath
opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall
speak for himself.
43:009:022 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews:
for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess
that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
43:009:023 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
43:009:024 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto
him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
43:009:025 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know
not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
43:009:026 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened
he thine eyes?
43:009:027 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not
