Chapter 5John


1 After these things was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is in :Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, the one called in Hebrew Bēthzatha, having five porches. 3 In these lay a multitude of the sick, blind, halt, withered. 5 And a certain man was there who had been thirty and eight years in his :infirmity. 6 :Jesus seeing this man lying down, and knowing that he had been thus already a long time, saith to him, Wouldest thou be made whole? 7 The sick 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. 8 :Jesus saith to him, Arise, take up thy :bed, and walk. 9 And straightway the man became whole, and took up his :bed and walked. Now it was the sabbath on that :day. 10 Said the Jews therefore to the one cured, It is the sabbath, and it is not lawful for thee to take up the bed. 11 But he answered them, He who made me whole, the same said to me, Take up thy :bed, and walk. 12 They asked him, Who is the man that said to thee, Take up, and walk? 13 But the one healed knew not who it was; for :Jesus disappeared, a crowd being in the place. 14 After these things :Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, thou art become whole: sin no more, lest aught worse befall thee. 15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him whole. 16 And for this the Jews persecuted :Jesus, because he did these things on a sabbath. 17 But he answered them, My :Father worketh even until now, and I work. 18 For this therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also said :God was his own Father, making himself equal with :God. 19 :Jesus therefore answered and said to them, Amen, Amen, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for whatever things HE doeth, these the Son also doeth likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that YE may marvel. 21 For just as the Father raiseth the dead and maketh alive, thus the Son also maketh alive whom he will. 22 For neither doth the Father judge anyone, but hath given all :judgment to the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. Who honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Amen, Amen, I say unto you [that], Who heareth my :word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of :death into :life. 25 Amen, Amen, I say unto you, that an hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of :God, and who hear shall live. 26 For just as the Father hath life in himself, thus gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to pass judgment, because he is Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all they in the tombs shall hear his :voice, 29 and shall come forth; who have done the good things, unto resurrection of life; who have practiced the evil things, unto resurrection of judgment. 30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and :my :judgment is righteous; because I seek not MY :will, but the will of him that sent me. 31 If I witness of myself, my :witness is not true. 32 It is another that witnesseth of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath witnessed to the truth. 34 But I receive not the witness from man: however, I say these things, that YE be saved. 35 HE was the burning and shining :lamp; and YE were willing to rejoice for an hour in his :light. 36 But the witness I have is greater than :John’s; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father that sent me, HE hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither ever heard his voice, nor seen his form. 38 And ye have not his :word abiding in you: for whom HE sent, him YE believe not. 39 Search the scriptures, because YE think that in them ye have eternal life; and THEY are which witness of me; 40 and ye will not to come to me, that ye may have life. 41 I receive not glory from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of :God in yourselves. 43 I am come in the name of my :Father, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in :his own :name, him ye will receive. 44 How can YE believe, receiving glory one of another, and the glory :from the only God ye seek not? 45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is your :accuser, Moses, on whom ye have set your hope. 46 For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for HE wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not HIS writings, how shall ye believe my :words?
