Part 50 out of 58

43:009:037 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he
that talketh with thee.

43:009:038 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

43:009:039 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that
they which see not might see; and that they which see might be
made blind.

43:009:040 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these
words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

43:009:041 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin:
but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

43:010:001 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the
door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the
same is a thief and a robber.

43:010:002 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the

43:010:003 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and
he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

43:010:004 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them,
and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

43:010:005 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him:
for they know not the voice of strangers.

43:010:006 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not
what things they were which he spake unto them.

43:010:007 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep.

43:010:008 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the
sheep did not hear them.

43:010:009 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

43:010:010 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to
destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly.

43:010:011 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for
the sheep.

43:010:012 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own
the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the
sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth
the sheep.

43:010:013 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not
for the sheep.

43:010:014 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of

43:010:015 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay
down my life for the sheep.

43:010:016 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also
I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be
one fold, and one shepherd.

43:010:017 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again.

43:010:018 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have
power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This
commandment have I received of my Father.

43:010:019 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these

43:010:020 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear
ye him?

43:010:021 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil.
Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

43:010:022 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it
was winter.

43:010:023 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

43:010:024 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How
long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell
us plainly.

43:010:025 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the
works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

43:010:026 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said
unto you.

43:010:027 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

43:010:028 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

43:010:029 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man
is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

43:010:030 I and my Father are one.

43:010:031 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

43:010:032 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my
Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

43:010:033 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee
not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man,
makest thyself God.

43:010:034 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye
are gods?

43:010:035 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and
the scripture cannot be broken;

43:010:036 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into
the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of

43:010:037 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

43:010:038 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that
ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in

43:010:039 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of
their hand,

43:010:040 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at
first baptized; and there he abode.

43:010:041 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but
all things that John spake of this man were true.

43:010:042 And many believed on him there.

43:011:001 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the
town of Mary and her sister Martha.

43:011:002 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and
wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

43:011:003 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he
whom thou lovest is sick.

43:011:004 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto
death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be
glorified thereby.

43:011:005 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

43:011:006 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two
days still in the same place where he was.

43:011:007 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into
Judaea again.

43:011:008 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to
stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

43:011:009 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any
man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the
light of this world.

43:011:010 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is
no light in him.

43:011:011 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our
friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of

43:011:012 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

43:011:013 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had
spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

43:011:014 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

43:011:015 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the
intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

43:011:016 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his
fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

43:011:017 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave
four days already.

43:011:018 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs

43:011:019 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them
concerning their brother.

43:011:020 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went
and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

43:011:021 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my
brother had not died.

43:011:022 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God,
God will give it thee.

43:011:023 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

43:011:024 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the
resurrection at the last day.

43:011:025 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he
that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

43:011:026 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?

43:011:027 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the
Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

43:011:028 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary
her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth
for thee.

43:011:029 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto

43:011:030 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that
place where Martha met him.

43:011:031 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted
her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went
out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep

43:011:032 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell
down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been
here, my brother had not died.

43:011:033 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also
weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was

43:011:034 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord,
come and see.

43:011:035 Jesus wept.

43:011:036 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

43:011:037 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the
eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not
have died?

43:011:038 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave.
It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

43:011:039 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him
that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh:
for he hath been dead four days.

43:011:040 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou
wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

43:011:041 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead
was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I
thank thee that thou hast heard me.

43:011:042 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the
people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that
thou hast sent me.

43:011:043 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice,
Lazarus, come forth.

43:011:044 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with
graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin.
Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

43:011:045 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the
things which Jesus did, believed on him.

43:011:046 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told
them what things Jesus had done.

43:011:047 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council,
and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

43:011:048 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the
Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

43:011:049 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that
same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

43:011:050 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should
die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

43:011:051 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that
year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

43:011:052 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather
together in one the children of God that were scattered

43:011:053 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put
him to death.

43:011:054 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went
thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city
called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

43:011:055 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of
the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify

43:011:056 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as
they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come
to the feast?

43:011:057 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a
commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should
shew it, that they might take him.

43:012:001 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where
Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the

43:012:002 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus
was one of them that sat at the table with him.

43:012:003 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly,
and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her
hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

43:012:004 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son,
which should betray him,

43:012:005 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and
given to the poor?

43:012:006 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he
was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

43:012:007 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying
hath she kept this.

43:012:008 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not

43:012:009 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and
they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see
Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

43:012:010 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus
also to death;

43:012:011 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and
believed on Jesus.

43:012:012 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when
they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

43:012:013 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and
cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in
the name of the Lord.

43:012:014 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it
is written,

43:012:015 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting
on an ass's colt.

43:012:016 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but
when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these
things were written of him, and that they had done these
things unto him.

43:012:017 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus
out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

43:012:018 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard
that he had done this miracle.

43:012:019 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how
ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

43:012:020 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to
worship at the feast:

43:012:021 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of
Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

43:012:022 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip
tell Jesus.

43:012:023 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the
Son of man should be glorified.

43:012:024 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall
into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it
bringeth forth much fruit.

43:012:025 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his
life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

43:012:026 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there
shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my
Father honour.

43:012:027 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me
from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

43:012:028 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven,
saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

43:012:029 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that
it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

43:012:030 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me,
but for your sakes.

43:012:031 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of
this world be cast out.

43:012:032 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men
unto me.

43:012:033 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

43:012:034 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that
Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man
must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

43:012:035 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light
with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come
upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither
he goeth.

43:012:036 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the
children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and
did hide himself from them.

43:012:037 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they
believed not on him:

43:012:038 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled,
which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to
whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

43:012:039 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said

43:012:040 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that
they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their
heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

43:012:041 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of

43:012:042 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest
they should be put out of the synagogue:

43:012:043 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

43:012:044 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not
on me, but on him that sent me.

43:012:045 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

43:012:046 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on
me should not abide in darkness.

43:012:047 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him
not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

43:012:048 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one
that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall
judge him in the last day.

43:012:049 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me,
he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should

43:012:050 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me,
so I speak.

43:013:001 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his
hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the
Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved
them unto the end.

43:013:002 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the
heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

43:013:003 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his
hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

43:013:004 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a
towel, and girded himself.

43:013:005 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash
the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith
he was girded.

43:013:006 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord,
dost thou wash my feet?

43:013:007 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not
now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

43:013:008 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus
answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

43:013:009 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also
my hands and my head.

43:013:010 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash
his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not

43:013:011 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are
not all clean.

43:013:012 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments,
and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have
done to you?

43:013:013 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

43:013:014 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye
also ought to wash one another's feet.

43:013:015 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have
done to you.

43:013:016 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater
than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that
sent him.

43:013:017 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

43:013:018 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that
the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me
hath lifted up his heel against me.

43:013:019 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass,
ye may believe that I am he.

43:013:020 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I
send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that
sent me.

43:013:021 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and
testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one
of you shall betray me.

43:013:022 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he

43:013:023 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples,
whom Jesus loved.

43:013:024 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who
it should be of whom he spake.

43:013:025 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is

43:013:026 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I
have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to
Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

43:013:027 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto
him, That thou doest, do quickly.

43:013:028 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this
unto him.

43:013:029 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that
Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of
against the feast; or, that he should give something to the

43:013:030 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it
was night.

43:013:031 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of
man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

43:013:032 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in
himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

43:013:033 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall
seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot
come; so now I say to you.

43:013:034 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another;
as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

43:013:035 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye
have love one to another.

43:013:036 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus
answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but
thou shalt follow me afterwards.

43:013:037 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I
will lay down my life for thy sake.

43:013:038 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake?
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till
thou hast denied me thrice.

43:014:001 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe
also in me.

43:014:002 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I
would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

43:014:003 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be

43:014:004 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

43:014:005 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest;
and how can we know the way?

43:014:006 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

43:014:007 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and
from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

43:014:008 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it
sufficeth us.

43:014:009 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and
yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath
seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

43:014:010 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in
me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but
the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

43:014:011 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or
else believe me for the very works' sake.

43:014:012 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the
works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

43:014:013 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that
the Father may be glorified in the Son.

43:014:014 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

43:014:015 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

43:014:016 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

43:014:017 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know
him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

43:014:018 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

43:014:019 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see
me: because I live, ye shall live also.

43:014:020 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in
me, and I in you.

43:014:021 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that
loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

43:014:022 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou
wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

43:014:023 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will
keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come
unto him, and make our abode with him.

43:014:024 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word
which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

43:014:025 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with

43:014:026 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father
will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring
all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto

43:014:027 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the
world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

43:014:028 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again
unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I
go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

43:014:029 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it
is come to pass, ye might believe.

43:014:030 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of
this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

43:014:031 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the
Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go

43:015:001 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

43:015:002 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and
every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may
bring forth more fruit.

43:015:003 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto

43:015:004 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of
itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye
abide in me.

43:015:005 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and
I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me
ye can do nothing.

43:015:006 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is
withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire,
and they are burned.

43:015:007 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask
what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

43:015:008 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so
shall ye be my disciples.

43:015:009 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye
in my love.

43:015:010 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as
I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

43:015:011 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain
in you, and that your joy might be full.

43:015:012 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have
loved you.

43:015:013 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his
life for his friends.

43:015:014 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

43:015:015 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth
not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for
all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known
unto you.

43:015:016 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained
you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your
fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the
Father in my name, he may give it you.

43:015:017 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

43:015:018 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it
hated you.

43:015:019 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but
because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of
the world, therefore the world hateth you.

43:015:020 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not
greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will
also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will
keep yours also.

43:015:021 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake,
because they know not him that sent me.

43:015:022 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin:
but now they have no cloak for their sin.

43:015:023 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

43:015:024 If I had not done among them the works which none other man
did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and
hated both me and my Father.

43:015:025 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that
is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

43:015:026 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from
the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from
the Father, he shall testify of me:

43:015:027 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me
from the beginning.

43:016:001 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be

43:016:002 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time
cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth
God service.

43:016:003 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not
known the Father, nor me.

43:016:004 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall
come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these
things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was
with you.

43:016:005 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you
asketh me, Whither goest thou?

43:016:006 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath
filled your heart.

43:016:007 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you
that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not
come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

43:016:008 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgment:

43:016:009 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

43:016:010 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no

43:016:011 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

43:016:012 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear
them now.

43:016:013 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide
you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but
whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will
shew you things to come.

43:016:014 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall
shew it unto you.

43:016:015 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I,
that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

43:016:016 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little
while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

43:016:017 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this
that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see
me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and,
Because I go to the Father?

43:016:018 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little
while? we cannot tell what he saith.

43:016:019 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said
unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A
little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little
while, and ye shall see me?

43:016:020 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament,
but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but
your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

43:016:021 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour
is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she
remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born
into the world.

43:016:022 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again,
and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from

43:016:023 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he
will give it you.

43:016:024 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall
receive, that your joy may be full.

43:016:025 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time
cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I
shall shew you plainly of the Father.

43:016:026 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you,
that I will pray the Father for you:

43:016:027 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me,
and have believed that I came out from God.

43:016:028 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world:
again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

43:016:029 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly,
and speakest no proverb.

43:016:030 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not
that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou
camest forth from God.

43:016:031 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

43:016:032 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be
scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and
yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

43:016:033 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have
peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the world.

43:017:001 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and
said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son
also may glorify thee:

43:017:002 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should
give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

43:017:003 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only
true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

43:017:004 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work
which thou gavest me to do.

43:017:005 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with
the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

43:017:006 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me
out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me;
and they have kept thy word.

43:017:007 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given
me are of thee.

43:017:008 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and
they have received them, and have known surely that I came out
from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

43:017:009 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which
thou hast given me; for they are thine.

43:017:010 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified
in them.

43:017:011 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world,
and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name
those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we

43:017:012 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name:
those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is
lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be

43:017:013 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world,
that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

43:017:014 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them,
because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the

43:017:015 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but
that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

43:017:016 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

43:017:017 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

43:017:018 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent
them into the world.

43:017:019 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be
sanctified through the truth.

43:017:020 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall
believe on me through their word;

43:017:021 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in
thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may
believe that thou hast sent me.

43:017:022 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that
they may be one, even as we are one:

43:017:023 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in
one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and
hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

43:017:024 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be
with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou
hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of
the world.

43:017:025 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have
known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

43:017:026 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it:
that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and
I in them.

43:018:001 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his
disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the
which he entered, and his disciples.

43:018:002 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus
ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

43:018:003 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from
the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns
and torches and weapons.

43:018:004 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him,
went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

43:018:005 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I
am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

43:018:006 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went
backward, and fell to the ground.

43:018:007 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus
of Nazareth.

43:018:008 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye
seek me, let these go their way:

43:018:009 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them
which thou gavest me have I lost none.

43:018:010 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high
priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's
name was Malchus.

43:018:011 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath:
the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

43:018:012 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took
Jesus, and bound him,

43:018:013 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to
Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

43:018:014 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it
was expedient that one man should die for the people.

43:018:015 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple:
that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with
Jesus into the palace of the high priest.

43:018:016 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other
disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto
her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.

43:018:017 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not
thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.

43:018:018 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire
of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and
Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

43:018:019 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his

43:018:020 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught
in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always
resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

43:018:021 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said
unto them: behold, they know what I said.

43:018:022 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood
by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest
thou the high priest so?

43:018:023 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the
evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

43:018:024 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

43:018:025 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore
unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied
it, and said, I am not.

43:018:026 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman
whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the
garden with him?

43:018:027 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

43:018:028 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment:
and it was early; and they themselves went not into the
judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they
might eat the passover.

43:018:029 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation
bring ye against this man?

43:018:030 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor,
we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

43:018:031 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him
according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is
not lawful for us to put any man to death:

43:018:032 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake,
signifying what death he should die.

43:018:033 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called
Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

43:018:034 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did
others tell it thee of me?

43:018:035 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief
priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

43:018:036 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom
were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I
should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not
from hence.

43:018:037 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus
answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I
born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should
bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth
heareth my voice.

43:018:038 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said
this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I
find in him no fault at all.

43:018:039 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at
the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the
King of the Jews?

43:018:040 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas.
Now Barabbas was a robber.

43:019:001 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

43:019:002 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his
head, and they put on him a purple robe,

43:019:003 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with
their hands.

43:019:004 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them,
Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find
no fault in him.

43:019:005 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the
purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

43:019:006 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they
cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto
them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in

43:019:007 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought
to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

43:019:008 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more

43:019:009 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus,
Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

43:019:010 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest
thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to
release thee?

43:019:011 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me,
except it were given thee from above: therefore he that
delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

43:019:012 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the
Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not
Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh
against Caesar.

43:019:013 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus
forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is
called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

43:019:014 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the
sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

43:019:015 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him.
Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief
priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

43:019:016 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And
they took Jesus, and led him away.

43:019:017 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the
place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

43:019:018 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either
side one, and Jesus in the midst.

43:019:019 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the

43:019:020 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where
Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written
in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

43:019:021 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not,
The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

43:019:022 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

43:019:023 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his
garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and
also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the
top throughout.

43:019:024 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but
cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might
be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them,
and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore
the soldiers did.

43:019:025 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his
mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary

43:019:026 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing
by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy

43:019:027 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from
that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

43:019:028 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I

43:019:029 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a
spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his

43:019:030 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is
finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

43:019:031 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the
bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day,
(for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that
their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

43:019:032 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and
of the other which was crucified with him.

43:019:033 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already,
they brake not his legs:

43:019:034 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and
forthwith came there out blood and water.

43:019:035 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he
knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

43:019:036 For these things were done, that the scripture should be
fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

43:019:037 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom
they pierced.

43:019:038 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of
Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that
he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him
leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

43:019:039 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to
Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes,
about an hundred pound weight.

43:019:040 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen
clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

43:019:041 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden;
and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet

43:019:042 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews'
preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

43:020:001 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it
was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken
away from the sepulchre.

43:020:002 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other
disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have
taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not
where they have laid him.

43:020:003 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came
to the sepulchre.

43:020:004 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun
Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

43:020:005 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes
lying; yet went he not in.

43:020:006 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the
sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

43:020:007 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the
linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

43:020:008 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the
sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

43:020:009 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise
again from the dead.

43:020:010 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

43:020:011 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she
wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,

43:020:012 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head,
and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

43:020:013 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto
them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not
where they have laid him.

43:020:014 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw
Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

43:020:015 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest
thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him,
Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast
laid him, and I will take him away.

43:020:016 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto
him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

43:020:017 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended
to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I
ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and
your God.

43:020:018 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen
the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

43:020:019 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week,
when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled
for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and
saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

43:020:020 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his
side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.

43:020:021 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father
hath sent me, even so send I you.

43:020:022 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto
them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

43:020:023 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and
whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

43:020:024 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with
them when Jesus came.

43:020:025 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the
LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands
the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of
the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not

43:020:026 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and
Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and
stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

43:020:027 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold
my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my
side: and be not faithless, but believing.

43:020:028 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.

43:020:029 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou
hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet
have believed.

43:020:030 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his
disciples, which are not written in this book:

43:020:031 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life
through his name.

43:021:001 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples
at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.

43:021:002 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus,
and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and
two other of his disciples.

43:021:003 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto
him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a
ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

43:021:004 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore:
but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

43:021:005 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They
answered him, No.

43:021:006 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the
ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they
were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

43:021:007 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It
is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and
did cast himself into the sea.

43:021:008 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were
not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,)
dragging the net with fishes.

43:021:009 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of
coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.

43:021:010 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now

43:021:011 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great
fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were
so many, yet was not the net broken.

43:021:012 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the
disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the

43:021:013 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish

43:021:014 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his
disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

43:021:015 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son
of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him,
Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him,
Feed my lambs.

43:021:016 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas,
lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest
that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

43:021:017 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest
thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third
time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest
all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto
him, Feed my sheep.

43:021:018 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou
girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when
thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and
another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest

43:021:019 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God.
And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

43:021:020 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved
following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and
said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

43:021:021 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man

43:021:022 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come,
what is that to thee? follow thou me.

43:021:023 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that
disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall
not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is
that to thee?

43:021:024 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and
wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.

43:021:025 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the
which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that
even the world itself could not contain the books that should
be written. Amen.

Book 44 Acts

44:001:001 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that
Jesus began both to do and teach,

44:001:002 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through
the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom
he had chosen:

44:001:003 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many
infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking
of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

44:001:004 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that
they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the
promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

44:001:005 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized
with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

44:001:006 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him,
saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom
to Israel?

44:001:007 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or
the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

44:001:008 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come
upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part
of the earth.

44:001:009 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was
taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

44:001:010 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,
behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

44:001:011 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up
into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into
heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go
into heaven.

44:001:012 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called
Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.

44:001:013 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room,
where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew,
Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of
Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.

44:001:014 These all continued with one accord in prayer and
supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus,
and with his brethren.

44:001:015 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the
disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about
an hundred and twenty,)

44:001:016 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been
fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake
before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took

44:001:017 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this

44:001:018 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity;
and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all
his bowels gushed out.

44:001:019 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch
as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that
is to say, The field of blood.

44:001:020 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be
desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let
another take.

44:001:021 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the
time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,

44:001:022 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he
was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness
with us of his resurrection.

44:001:023 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was
surnamed Justus, and Matthias.

44:001:024 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the
hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

44:001:025 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from
which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own

44:001:026 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon
Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

44:002:001 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all
with one accord in one place.

44:002:002 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing
mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were

44:002:003 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,
and it sat upon each of them.

44:002:004 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to
speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

44:002:005 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of
every nation under heaven.

44:002:006 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together,
and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak
in his own language.

44:002:007 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,
Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

44:002:008 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were

44:002:009 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in
Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and

44:002:010 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya
about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

44:002:011 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the
wonderful works of God.

44:002:012 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to
another, What meaneth this?

44:002:013 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

44:002:014 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice,
and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at
Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

44:002:015 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the
third hour of the day.

44:002:016 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

44:002:017 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will
pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see
visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

44:002:018 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in
those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

44:002:019 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the
earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

44:002:020 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into
blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

44:002:021 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the
name of the Lord shall be saved.

44:002:022 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man
approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs,
which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves
also know:

44:002:023 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and
foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have
crucified and slain:

44:002:024 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death:
because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

44:002:025 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always
before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not
be moved:

44:002:026 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad;
moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

44:002:027 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou
suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

44:002:028 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make
me full of joy with thy countenance.

44:002:029 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the
patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his
sepulchre is with us unto this day.

44:002:030 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with
an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to
the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

44:002:031 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ,
that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see

44:002:032 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

44:002:033 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having
received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath
shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

44:002:034 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith
himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right

44:002:035 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

44:002:036 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God
hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord
and Christ.

44:002:037 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart,
and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and
brethren, what shall we do?

44:002:038 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one
of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

44:002:039 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all
that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall

44:002:040 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying,
Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

44:002:041 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the
same day there were added unto them about three thousand

44:002:042 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and
fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

44:002:043 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were
done by the apostles.

44:002:044 And all that believed were together, and had all things

44:002:045 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all
men, as every man had need.

44:002:046 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and
breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with
gladness and singleness of heart,

44:002:047 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the
Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

44:003:001 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the
hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

44:003:002 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried,
whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called
Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

44:003:003 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an

44:003:004 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look
on us.

44:003:005 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of

44:003:006 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I
have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise
up and walk.

44:003:007 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and
immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

44:003:008 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them
into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

44:003:009 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

44:003:010 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the
Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder
and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

44:003:011 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all
the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called
Solomon's, greatly wondering.

44:003:012 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of
Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on
us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this
man to walk?

44:003:013 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our
fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up,
and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was
determined to let him go.

44:003:014 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a
murderer to be granted unto you;

44:003:015 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the
dead; whereof we are witnesses.

44:003:016 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man
strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him
hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you

44:003:017 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as
did also your rulers.

44:003:018 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of
all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so

44:003:019 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be
blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the
presence of the Lord.

44:003:020 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto

44:003:021 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of
all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy
prophets since the world began.

44:003:022 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the
Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto
me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say
unto you.

44:003:023 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not
hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

44:003:024 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow
after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these

44:003:025 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which
God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy
seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

44:003:026 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him
to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his

44:004:001 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the
captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

44:004:002 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached
through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

44:004:003 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the
next day: for it was now eventide.

44:004:004 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the
number of the men was about five thousand.

44:004:005 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and
elders, and scribes,

44:004:006 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and
Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high
priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

44:004:007 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what
power, or by what name, have ye done this?

44:004:008 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye
rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

44:004:009 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the
impotent man, by what means he is made whole;

44:004:010 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye
crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth
this man stand here before you whole.

44:004:011 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders,
which is become the head of the corner.

44:004:012 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none
other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be

44:004:013 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and
perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they
marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been
with Jesus.

44:004:014 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them,
they could say nothing against it.

44:004:015 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the
council, they conferred among themselves,

44:004:016 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a
notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them
that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.

44:004:017 But that it spread no further among the people, let us
straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man
in this name.

44:004:018 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all
nor teach in the name of Jesus.

44:004:019 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be
right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto
God, judge ye.

44:004:020 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and

44:004:021 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go,
finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the
people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.

44:004:022 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of
healing was shewed.

44:004:023 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported
all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

44:004:024 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God
with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made
heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

44:004:025 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the
heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

44:004:026 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered
together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

44:004:027 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast
anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles,
and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

44:004:028 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined
before to be done.

44:004:029 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy
servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

44:004:030 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and
wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

44:004:031 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were
assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy
Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

44:004:032 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and
of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things
which he possessed was his own; but they had all things

44:004:033 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the
resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them

44:004:034 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as
were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the
prices of the things that were sold,

44:004:035 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was
made unto every man according as he had need.

44:004:036 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which
is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and
of the country of Cyprus,

44:004:037 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at
the apostles' feet.

44:005:001 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold
a possession,

44:005:002 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to
it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles'

44:005:003 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to
lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of
the land?
