Chapter 7John


1And after these things :Jesus walked in :Galilee: for he would not walk in :Judæa, because the Jews sought to kill him.
2 Now the feast of the Jews, the feast of tabernacles, was nigh. 3 His :brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into :Judæa, that thy :disciples also shall behold thy :works which thou doest. 4 For no one doeth aught in secret, and himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou doest these things, manifest thyself to the world. 5 For even his :brethren did not believe unto him. 6 :Jesus therefore saith to them, :My :season is not yet come; but your :season is always ready. 7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I witness of it, that its :works are evil. 8 Go YE up unto the feast: I go not up yet unto this :feast; because :my :season is not yet fulfilled. 9 And having said these things to them, he remained in :Galilee. 10 But when his :brethren were gone up unto the feast, then he himself also went up, not openly, but as if in secret. 11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, Where is that man? 12 And much murmuring was among the crowds concerning him: some said [that], He is a good man; but others said, No, but he leadeth the multitude astray. 13 Yet no one spake openly of him for the fear of the Jews. 14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, not having learned? 16 Jesus therefore answered them, and said, My :teaching is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any willeth to do his :will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of :God, or whether I speak from myself. 18 Who speaketh from himself seeketh his :own :glory: but who seeketh the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law, and none of you doeth the law? Why seek ye to kill me? 20 The crowd answered, Thou hast a demon: who seeketh to kill thee? 21 Jesus answered and said to them, I did one work, and ye all marvel. 22 Therefore Moses hath given you :circumcision (not that it is of :Moses but of the fathers); and on a sabbath ye circumcise a man. 23 If the man receiveth circumcision on a sabbath, that the law of Moses be not broken; are ye wroth with me, because I made a man every whit whole on a sabbath? 24 Judge not according to appearance, but judge :righteous judgment. 25 Some therefore of them of Jerusalem said, Is not this he whom they seek to kill? 26 And behold, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers verily know that this is the Christ? 27 But we know this man whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no one knoweth whence he is. 28 :Jesus therefore cried, teaching in the temple and saying, Ye both know me, and know whence I am; and I am not come of myself, but who sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 I know him; because I am from him, and HE sent me. 30 They sought therefore to take him: and no one laid :hand on him, because his :hour was not yet come. 31 But of the crowd many believed unto him and said, When the Christ shall come, will he do more signs than what this man hath done? 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things concerning him; and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to take him. 33 :Jesus therefore said, Yet a little time am I with you, and I go unto him that sent me. 34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, YE cannot come. 35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, Whither will this man go that WE shall not find him? will he go unto the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 What is this :word that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me; and where I am, YE cannot come?
37 Now on the last, the great day of the feast, :Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any thirst, let him come unto me and drink. 38 Who believeth unto me, as the scripture hath said, out of his :belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 But this he spake of the Spirit, which they that believed unto him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet; because Jesus was not yet glorified. 40 Some of the crowd therefore, when they heard these :words, said that this is truly the prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, What, doth the Christ come out of :Galilee? 42 Did not the scripture say that the Christ cometh of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was? 43 A division therefore arose in the crowd because of him. 44 And some of them would have taken him; but no one laid :hands on him. 45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and these said to them, Why did ye not bring him? 46 The officers answered, Never man so spake. 47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, Are ye also deceived? 48 Hath any of the rulers believed unto him, or of the Pharisees? 49 But this :crowd that knoweth not the law are accursed. 50 Nicodemus saith to them (he that came unto him before, being one of them), 51 Doth our :law judge the man, except it first hear from him and know what he doeth? 52 They answered and said to him, Art THOU also of :Galilee? Search, and see that out of :Galilee ariseth no prophet. 53 And they went each unto his :house:
