The Gospel According to St. John

1:1In the beginning was theWord, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2The same was in the beginning withGod. 1:3All things were madeby him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 1:4In him was life; and the life wasthe light of men. 1:5And thelight shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

1:6There was a man sentfrom God, whose name was John. 1:7The same came for a witness, tobear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 1:8He was not that Light, butwas sent to bear witness of that Light. 1:9That was the true Light,which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 1:10He was in the world, and theworld was made by him, and the world knew him not. 1:11He came unto his own, and his ownreceived him not. 1:12But asmany as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,even to them that believe on his name: 1:13Which were born, not of blood,nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 1:14And the Word was made flesh, anddwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the onlybegotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

1:15John bare witness ofhim, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh afterme is preferred before me: for he was before me. 1:16And of his fulness have all wereceived, and grace for grace. 1:17For the law was given by Moses,but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 1:18No man hath seen God at any time;the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hathdeclared him.

1:19And this is the recordof John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him,Who art thou? 1:20And heconfessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 1:21And they asked him, What then?Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And heanswered, No. 1:22Then saidthey unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sentus. What sayest thou of thyself? 1:23He said, I am the voice ofone crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as saidthe prophet Esaias. 1:24Andthey which were sent were of the Pharisees. 1:25And they asked him, and said untohim, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias,neither that prophet? 1:26John answered them, saying, Ibaptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 1:27He it is, who comingafter me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy tounloose. 1:28These thingswere done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

1:29The next day Johnseeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, whichtaketh away the sin of the world. 1:30This is he of whom I said, Afterme cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 1:31And I knew him not: butthat he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizingwith water. 1:32And John barerecord, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, andit abode upon him. 1:33And Iknew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same saidunto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining onhim, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 1:34And I saw, and bare record thatthis is the Son of God.

1:35Again the next dayafter John stood, and two of his disciples; 1:36And looking upon Jesus as hewalked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! 1:37And the two disciples heard himspeak, and they followed Jesus. 1:38Then Jesus turned, and saw themfollowing, and saith unto them, What seek ye? Theysaid unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) wheredwellest thou? 1:39He saithunto them, Come and see. They came and saw where hedwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. 1:40One of the two whichheard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’sbrother. 1:41He first findethhis own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias,which is, being interpreted, the Christ. 1:42And he brought him to Jesus. Andwhen Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son ofJona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, Astone.

1:43The day followingJesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him,Follow me. 1:44Now Philip was of Bethsaida, thecity of Andrew and Peter. 1:45Philip findeth Nathanael, andsaith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and theprophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 1:46And Nathanael said unto him, Canthere any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come andsee. 1:47Jesus saw Nathanaelcoming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israeliteindeed, in whom is no guile! 1:48Nathanael saith unto him, Whenceknowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Beforethat Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 1:49Nathanael answeredand saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King ofIsrael. 1:50Jesus answeredand said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw theeunder the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things thanthese. 1:51And hesaith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafterye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descendingupon the Son of man.

2:1And the third day there was amarriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2:2And both Jesus was called, and hisdisciples, to the marriage. 2:3And when they wanted wine, themother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 2:4Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 2:5His mother saithunto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 2:6And there were set there sixwaterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews,containing two or three firkins apiece. 2:7Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up tothe brim. 2:8And he saithunto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of thefeast. And they bare it. 2:9When the ruler of the feast hadtasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but theservants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called thebridegroom, 2:10And saithunto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and whenmen have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast keptthe good wine until now. 2:11This beginning of miracles didJesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and hisdisciples believed on him.

2:12After this he wentdown to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and hisdisciples: and they continued there not many days.

2:13And the Jews’passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 2:14And found in the temple thosethat sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 2:15And when he had made ascourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and thesheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrewthe tables; 2:16And said untothem that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not myFather’s house an house of merchandise. 2:17And his disciples remembered thatit was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

2:18Then answered the Jewsand said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doestthese things? 2:19Jesusanswered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and inthree days I will raise it up. 2:20Then said the Jews, Forty and sixyears was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 2:21But he spake of thetemple of his body. 2:22Whentherefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he hadsaid this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word whichJesus had said.

2:23Now when he was inJerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in hisname, when they saw the miracles which he did. 2:24But Jesus did not commit himselfunto them, because he knew all men, 2:25And needed not that any shouldtestify of man: for he knew what was in man.

3:1There was a man of thePharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 3:2The 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. 3:3Jesus answered and saidunto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man beborn again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 3:4Nicodemus saith unto him, How cana man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into hismother’s womb, and be born? 3:5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of waterand of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 3:6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is bornof the Spirit is spirit. 3:7Marvel not that Isaid unto thee, Ye must be born again. 3:8The wind blowethwhere it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tellwhence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born ofthe Spirit. 3:9Nicodemus answered and said untohim, How can these things be? 3:10Jesus answered and said unto him,Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 3:11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, andtestify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 3:12If I have toldyou earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tellyou of heavenly things? 3:13And no man hathascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even theSon of man which is in heaven.

3:14And as Moseslifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man belifted up: 3:15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but haveeternal life.

3:16For God so lovedthe world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth inhim should not perish, but have everlasting life. 3:17For God sent nothis Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world throughhim might be saved.

3:18He that believethon 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. 3:19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world,and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 3:20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither comethto the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 3:21But he that doethtruth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that theyare wrought in God.

3:22After these things came Jesus andhis disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, andbaptized.

3:23And John also wasbaptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: andthey came, and were baptized. 3:24For John was not yet cast intoprison.

3:25Then there arose aquestion between some of John’s disciples and the Jews aboutpurifying. 3:26And they cameunto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan,to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and allmen come to him. 3:27John answered and said, A man canreceive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 3:28Ye yourselves bear me witness,that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 3:29He that hath the bride is thebridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and hearethhim, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joytherefore is fulfilled. 3:30He must increase, but Imust decrease. 3:31Hethat 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. 3:32And what he hath seen andheard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 3:33He that hath received histestimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 3:34For he whom God hath sentspeaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measureunto him. 3:35TheFather loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 3:36He that believeth on the Son hatheverlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;but the wrath of God abideth on him.

4:1When therefore the Lordknew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized moredisciples than John, 4:2(Though Jesus himself baptizednot, but his disciples,) 4:3He left Judaea, and departed againinto Galilee. 4:4And he mustneeds go through Samaria. 4:5Then cometh he to a city ofSamaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacobgave to his son Joseph. 4:6Now Jacob’s well was there.Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on thewell: and it was about the sixth hour. 4:7There cometh a woman of Samaria todraw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. 4:8(For his discipleswere gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 4:9Then saith the woman of Samariaunto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am awoman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 4:10Jesus answered and saidunto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it isthat saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, andhe would have given thee living water. 4:11The woman saith unto him, Sir,thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence thenhast thou that living water? 4:12Art thou greater than our fatherJacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and hischildren, and his cattle? 4:13Jesus answered and said unto her,Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 4:14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shallnever thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a wellof water springing up into everlasting life. 4:15The woman saith unto him, Sir,give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 4:16Jesus saith unto her,Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 4:17The woman answered and said, Ihave no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said,I have no husband: 4:18For thou hast hadfive husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in thatsaidst thou truly. 4:19The woman saith unto him, Sir, Iperceive that thou art a prophet. 4:20Our fathers worshipped in thismountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought toworship. 4:21Jesus saith untoher, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shallneither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 4:22Yeworship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of theJews. 4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shallworship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such toworship him. 4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worshiphim in spirit and in truth. 4:25The woman saith unto him, I knowthat Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tellus all things. 4:26Jesussaith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

4:27And upon this came his disciples,and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekestthou? or, Why talkest thou with her? 4:28The woman then left her waterpot,and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 4:29Come, see a man, which told meall things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? 4:30Then they went out of the city,and came unto him.

4:31In the mean while hisdisciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. 4:32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. 4:33Therefore said the disciples oneto another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? 4:34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish hiswork. 4:35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then comethharvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on thefields; for they are white already to harvest. 4:36And he thatreapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that bothhe that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 4:37And herein isthat saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 4:38I sent you toreap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye areentered into their labours.

4:39And many of the Samaritans ofthat city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, Hetold me all that ever I did. 4:40So when the Samaritans were comeunto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abodethere two days. 4:41And manymore believed because of his own word; 4:42And said unto the woman, Now webelieve, not because of thy saying: for we have heard himourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of theworld.

4:43Now after two days hedeparted thence, and went into Galilee. 4:44For Jesus himself testified, thata prophet hath no honour in his own country. 4:45Then when he was come intoGalilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that hedid at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast. 4:46So Jesus came again into Cana ofGalilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman,whose son was sick at Capernaum. 4:47When he heard that Jesus was comeout of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that hewould come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. 4:48Then said Jesus unto him,Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. 4:49The nobleman saithunto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. 4:50Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the wordthat Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. 4:51And as he was now going down, hisservants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. 4:52Then enquired he of them the hourwhen he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventhhour the fever left him. 4:53So the father knew that itwas at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his wholehouse. 4:54This isagain the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out ofJudaea into Galilee.

5:1After this there was afeast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 5:2Now there is at Jerusalem by thesheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda,having five porches. 5:3Inthese lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered,waiting for the moving of the water. 5:4For an angel went down at acertain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then firstafter the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoeverdisease he had. 5:5And acertain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 5:6When Jesus saw him lie,and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saithunto him, Wilt thou be made whole? 5:7The 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. 5:8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 5:9And immediately the man was madewhole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was thesabbath.

5:10The Jews thereforesaid unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful forthee to carry thy bed. 5:11He answered them, He that made mewhole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. 5:12Then asked theyhim, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thybed, and walk? 5:13Andhe that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himselfaway, a multitude being in that place. 5:14Afterward Jesus findeth him inthe temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art madewhole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 5:15The man departed, and told theJews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. 5:16And therefore did the Jewspersecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these thingson the sabbath day.

5:17But Jesus answeredthem, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. 5:18Therefore the Jewssought 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. 5:19Then answered Jesus andsaid unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Soncan do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for whatthings soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 5:20For the Fatherloveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he willshew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 5:21For as the Fatherraiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Sonquickeneth whom he will. 5:22For the Fatherjudgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 5:23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honourthe Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father whichhath sent him. 5:24Verily, verily, Isay 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 passedfrom death unto life. 5:25Verily, verily, Isay unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear thevoice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 5:26For as the Fatherhath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 5:27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, becausehe is the Son of man. 5:28Marvel not atthis: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the gravesshall hear his voice, 5:29And shall comeforth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and theythat have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 5:30I can of mine ownself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because Iseek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. 5:31IfI bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

5:32There is anotherthat beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which hewitnesseth of me is true. 5:33Ye sent untoJohn, and he bare witness unto the truth. 5:34But I receive nottestimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 5:35Hewas a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season torejoice in his light.

5:36But I havegreater witness than that of John: for the works which the Fatherhath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me,that the Father hath sent me. 5:37And the Fatherhimself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neitherheard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 5:38And ye have nothis word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

5:39Search thescriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are theywhich testify of me. 5:40And ye will notcome to me, that ye might have life. 5:41I receive nothonour from men. 5:42But I know you,that ye have not the love of God in you. 5:43I am come in myFather’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his ownname, him ye will receive. 5:44How can yebelieve, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour thatcometh from God only? 5:45Do not think thatI will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you,even Moses, in whom ye trust. 5:46For had yebelieved Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 5:47But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe mywords?

6:1After these things Jesus went overthe sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 6:2And a great multitude followedhim, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that werediseased. 6:3And Jesus wentup into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 6:4And the passover, a feast of theJews, was nigh.

6:5When Jesus then liftedup his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith untoPhilip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? 6:6And this he said toprove him: for he himself knew what he would do. 6:7Philip answered him, Two hundredpennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them maytake a little. 6:8One of hisdisciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, 6:9There is a lad here, which hathfive barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 6:10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in theplace. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 6:11And Jesus took the loaves; andwhen he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and thedisciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as muchas they would. 6:12When theywere filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up thefragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 6:13Therefore they gatheredthem together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of thefive barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that hadeaten. 6:14Then those men,when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truththat prophet that should come into the world.

6:15When Jesus thereforeperceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king,he departed again into a mountain himself alone. 6:16And when even was nowcome, his disciples went down unto the sea, 6:17And entered into a ship, and wentover the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not cometo them. 6:18And the seaarose by reason of a great wind that blew. 6:19So when they had rowed about fiveand twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, anddrawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 6:20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 6:21Then they willingly received himinto the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

6:22The day following,when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that therewas none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples wereentered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, butthat his disciples were gone away alone; 6:23(Howbeit there came other boatsfrom Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that theLord had given thanks:) 6:24When the people therefore sawthat Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping,and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus. 6:25And when they had found him onthe other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thouhither? 6:26Jesus answeredthem 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, andwere filled. 6:27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat whichendureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you:for him hath God the Father sealed. 6:28Then said they unto him, Whatshall we do, that we might work the works of God? 6:29Jesus answered and said untothem, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whomhe hath sent. 6:30Theysaid therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, andbelieve thee? what dost thou work? 6:31Our fathers did eat manna in thedesert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 6:32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that breadfrom heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 6:33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, andgiveth life unto the world. 6:34Then said they unto him, Lord,evermore give us this bread. 6:35And 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. 6:36But I said untoyou, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 6:37All that theFather giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in nowise cast out. 6:38For I came downfrom heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 6:39And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of allwhich he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up againat the last day. 6:40And this is thewill of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, andbelieveth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up atthe last day. 6:41TheJews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the breadwhich came down from heaven. 6:42And they said, Is not this Jesus,the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that hesaith, I came down from heaven? 6:43Jesus therefore answered and saidunto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 6:44No man can cometo me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise himup at the last day. 6:45It is written inthe prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man thereforethat hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. 6:46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God,he hath seen the Father. 6:47Verily, verily, Isay unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 6:48Iam that bread of life. 6:49Your fathers dideat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 6:50This is the breadwhich cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 6:51Iam the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of thisbread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh,which I will give for the life of the world. 6:52The Jews therefore strove amongthemselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 6:53Then Jesus said untothem, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat theflesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 6:54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life;and I will raise him up at the last day. 6:55For my flesh ismeat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 6:56He that eateth myflesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 6:57As the livingFather hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, evenhe shall live by me. 6:58This is thatbread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, andare dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. 6:59These things said he in thesynagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. 6:60Many therefore of his disciples,when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who canhear it? 6:61When Jesus knewin himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? 6:62What andif ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 6:63Itis the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words thatI speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 6:64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesusknew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who shouldbetray him. 6:65And he said,Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me,except it were given unto him of my Father.

6:66From that time many of hisdisciples went back, and walked no more with him. 6:67Then said Jesus unto the twelve,Will ye also go away? 6:68Then Simon Peter answered him,Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 6:69And we believe and are sure thatthou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. 6:70Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 6:71He spake of JudasIscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him,being one of the twelve.

7:1After these thingsJesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jewssought to kill him. 7:2Nowthe Jews’ feast of tabernacles was at hand. 7:3His brethren therefore said untohim, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see theworks that thou doest. 7:4Forthere is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and hehimself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyselfto the world. 7:5For neitherdid his brethren believe in him. 7:6Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. 7:7Theworld cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that theworks thereof are evil. 7:8Go ye up unto thisfeast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. 7:9When he had saidthese words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

7:10But when his brethrenwere gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as itwere in secret. 7:11Then theJews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he? 7:12And there was much murmuringamong the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: otherssaid, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. 7:13Howbeit no man spake openly ofhim for fear of the Jews.

7:14Now about the midst ofthe feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 7:15And the Jews marvelled, saying,How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? 7:16Jesus answered them, and said,My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 7:17Ifany man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be ofGod, or whether I speak of myself. 7:18He that speakethof himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that senthim, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 7:19Did not Mosesgive you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go yeabout to kill me? 7:20The people answered and said,Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee? 7:21Jesus answered and said untothem, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 7:22Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it isof Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 7:23Ifa man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Mosesshould not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man everywhit whole on the sabbath day? 7:24Judge notaccording to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 7:25Then said some of them ofJerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? 7:26But, lo, he speaketh boldly, andthey say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the veryChrist? 7:27Howbeit we knowthis man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence heis. 7:28Then cried Jesus inthe temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and yeknow whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me istrue, whom ye know not. 7:29But I know him:for I am from him, and he hath sent me. 7:30Then they sought to take him: butno man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. 7:31And many of the people believedon him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than thesewhich this man hath done?

7:32The Pharisees heardthat the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees andthe chief priests sent officers to take him. 7:33Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto himthat sent me. 7:34Ye shall seek me,and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannotcome. 7:35Then saidthe 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? 7:36What manner ofsaying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shallnot find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come? 7:37In the last day,that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 7:38Hethat believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shallflow rivers of living water. 7:39(But this spake he of the Spirit,which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was notyet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

7:40Many of the peopletherefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is theProphet. 7:41Others said,This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 7:42Hath not the scripturesaid, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town ofBethlehem, where David was? 7:43So there was a division among thepeople because of him. 7:44And some of them would have takenhim; but no man laid hands on him.

7:45Then came the officersto the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have yenot brought him? 7:46Theofficers answered, Never man spake like this man. 7:47Then answered them the Pharisees,Are ye also deceived? 7:48Have any of the rulers or of thePharisees believed on him? 7:49But this people who knoweth notthe law are cursed. 7:50Nicodemus saith unto them, (hethat came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 7:51Doth our law judge anyman, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? 7:52They answered and said unto him,Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth noprophet. 7:53And every manwent unto his own house.

8:1Jesus went unto themount of Olives. 8:2And earlyin the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came untohim; and he sat down, and taught them. 8:3And the scribes and Phariseesbrought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her inthe midst, 8:4They say untohim, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 8:5Now Moses in the law commanded us,that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 8:6This they said, tempting him, thatthey might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with hisfinger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 8:7So when they continued asking him,he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that iswithout sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8:8And again he stooped down, andwrote on the ground. 8:9Andthey which heard it, being convicted by their ownconscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even untothe last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 8:10When Jesus had lifted uphimself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemnedthee? 8:11She said, Noman, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemnthee: go, and sin no more.

8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them,saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth meshall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 8:13The Phariseestherefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is nottrue. 8:14Jesus answered andsaid unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yetmy record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but yecannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. 8:15Ye judge afterthe flesh; I judge no man. 8:16And yet if Ijudge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father thatsent me. 8:17It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men istrue. 8:18I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sentme beareth witness of me. 8:19Then said they unto him, Where isthy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor myFather: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. 8:20These words spakeJesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid handson him; for his hour was not yet come. 8:21Then said Jesus again unto them,I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in yoursins: whither I go, ye cannot come. 8:22Then said the Jews, Will he killhimself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. 8:23And he said untothem, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of thisworld; I am not of this world. 8:24I said thereforeunto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I amhe, ye shall die in your sins. 8:25Then said they unto him, Who artthou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same thatI said unto you from the beginning. 8:26I have manythings to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and Ispeak to the world those things which I have heard of him. 8:27They understood not that he spaketo them of the Father. 8:28Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that Iam he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Fatherhath taught me, I speak these things. 8:29And he that sentme is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always thosethings that please him. 8:30As he spake these words, manybelieved on him. 8:31Thensaid Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If yecontinue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 8:32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

8:33They answered him, We beAbraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou,Ye shall be made free? 8:34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is theservant of sin. 8:35And the servantabideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 8:36Ifthe Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 8:37Iknow that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my wordhath no place in you. 8:38I speak thatwhich I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen withyour father. 8:39Theyanswered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them,If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works ofAbraham. 8:40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth,which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 8:41Ye do the deedsof your father. Then said they to him, We be not born offornication; we have one Father, even God. 8:42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forthand came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 8:43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because yecannot hear my word. 8:44Ye are of yourfather the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was amurderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there isno truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he isa liar, and the father of it. 8:45And because Itell you the truth, ye believe me not. 8:46Which of youconvinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 8:47Hethat is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not,because ye are not of God. 8:48Then answered the Jews, and saidunto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 8:49Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonourme. 8:50And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh andjudgeth. 8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, heshall never see death. 8:52Then said the Jews unto him, Nowwe know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; andthou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never tasteof death. 8:53Art thougreater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead:whom makest thou thyself? 8:54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father thathonoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: 8:55Yet ye have notknown him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall bea liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying. 8:56Your fatherAbraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. 8:57Then said the Jewsunto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 8:58Jesus said unto them,Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 8:59Then took they upstones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple,going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

9:1And as Jesuspassed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. 9:2And his disciples asked him,saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was bornblind? 9:3Jesus answered,Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but thatthe works of God should be made manifest in him. 9:4I must work theworks of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no mancan work. 9:5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 9:6When he had thusspoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and heanointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 9:7And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is byinterpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and cameseeing.

9:8The neighbourstherefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Isnot this he that sat and begged? 9:9Some said, This is he: otherssaid, He is like him: but he said, I am he. 9:10Therefore said they unto him, Howwere thine eyes opened? 9:11He answered and said, A man thatis called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went andwashed, and I received sight. 9:12Then said they unto him, Where ishe? He said, I know not.

9:13They brought to thePharisees him that aforetime was blind. 9:14And it was the sabbath day whenJesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 9:15Then again the Pharisees alsoasked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clayupon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 9:16Therefore said some of thePharisees, 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 therewas a division among them. 9:17They say unto the blind managain, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said,He is a prophet. 9:18But theJews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and receivedhis sight, until they called the parents of him that had received hissight. 9:19And they askedthem, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then dothhe now see? 9:20His parentsanswered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was bornblind: 9:21But by what meanshe now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he isof age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 9:22These words spake hisparents, 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 ofthe synagogue. 9:23Thereforesaid his parents, He is of age; ask him. 9:24Then again called they the manthat was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that thisman is a sinner. 9:25Heanswered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: onething I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 9:26Then said they to him again, Whatdid he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 9:27He answered them, I have told youalready, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again?will ye also be his disciples? 9:28Then they reviled him, and said,Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. 9:29We know that God spake untoMoses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. 9:30The man answered and saidunto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whencehe is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. 9:31Now we know that God heareth notsinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him heheareth. 9:32Since the worldbegan was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was bornblind. 9:33If this man werenot of God, he could do nothing. 9:34They answered and said unto him,Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they casthim out. 9:35Jesus heard thatthey had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 9:36He answered and said, Who is he,Lord, that I might believe on him? 9:37And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 9:38And he said, Lord,I believe. And he worshipped him.

9:39And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see notmight see; and that they which see might be made blind. 9:40And some of the Phariseeswhich were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blindalso? 9:41Jesus said untothem, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now yesay, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

10:1Verily, verily, Isay unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, butclimbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 10:2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of thesheep. 10:3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and hecalleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 10:4And when heputteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep followhim: for they know his voice. 10:5And a strangerwill they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voiceof strangers. 10:6Thisparable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things theywere which he spake unto them. 10:7Then said Jesus unto them again,Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of thesheep. 10:8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but thesheep did not hear them. 10:9I am the door: byme if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, andfind pasture. 10:10The thief comethnot, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that theymight have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 10:11Iam the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 10:12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own thesheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. 10:13The hirelingfleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 10:14Iam the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 10:15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I laydown my life for the sheep. 10:16And other sheepI have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shallhear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 10:17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,that I might take it again. 10:18No man taketh itfrom me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and Ihave power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

10:19There was a division thereforeagain among the Jews for these sayings. 10:20And many of them said, He hath adevil, and is mad; why hear ye him? 10:21Others said, These are not thewords of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

10:22And it was atJerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 10:23And Jesus walked in the templein Solomon’s porch. 10:24Then came the Jews round abouthim, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou bethe Christ, tell us plainly. 10:25Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in myFather’s name, they bear witness of me. 10:26But ye believenot, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 10:27My sheep hear myvoice, and I know them, and they follow me: 10:28And I give untothem eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall anyman pluck them out of my hand. 10:29My Father, whichgave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able topluck them out of my Father’s hand. 10:30I and myFather are one. 10:31Then the Jews took up stonesagain to stone him. 10:32Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which ofthose works do ye stone me? 10:33The Jews answered him, saying,For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because thatthou, being a man, makest thyself God. 10:34Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 10:35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and thescripture cannot be broken; 10:36Say ye of him,whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thoublasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 10:37If I do not theworks of my Father, believe me not. 10:38But if I do,though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, andbelieve, that the Father is in me, and I in him. 10:39Therefore they sought again totake him: but he escaped out of their hand, 10:40And went away again beyondJordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode. 10:41And many resorted untohim, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of thisman were true. 10:42And manybelieved on him there.

11:1Now a certainman was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Maryand her sister Martha. 11:2(It was that Mary whichanointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whosebrother Lazarus was sick.) 11:3Therefore his sisters sent untohim, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 11:4When Jesus heard that, hesaid, This sickness is not unto death, but for the gloryof God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. 11:5Now Jesus loved Martha, and hersister, and Lazarus. 11:6Whenhe had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in thesame place where he was. 11:7Then after that saith he tohis disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 11:8Hisdisciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; andgoest thou thither again? 11:9Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in theday, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 11:10But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there isno light in him. 11:11These things said he: and afterthat he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; butI go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 11:12Then said his disciples, Lord,if he sleep, he shall do well. 11:13Howbeit Jesus spake of hisdeath: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 11:14Then said Jesus untothem plainly, Lazarus is dead. 11:15And I am gladfor your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe;nevertheless let us go unto him. 11:16Then said Thomas, which iscalled Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may diewith him. 11:17Then whenJesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four daysalready. 11:18Now Bethany wasnigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 11:19And many of the Jews came toMartha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 11:20Then Martha, as soon as sheheard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat stillin the house. 11:21Then saidMartha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 11:22But I know, that evennow, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 11:23Jesus saith unto her,Thy brother shall rise again. 11:24Martha saith unto him, I knowthat he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me,though he were dead, yet shall he live: 11:26And whosoeverliveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 11:27She saith untohim, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, whichshould come into the world. 11:28And when she had so said, shewent her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master iscome, and calleth for thee. 11:29As soon as she heardthat, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 11:30Now Jesus was not yet come intothe town, but was in that place where Martha met him. 11:31The Jews then which were withher in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose uphastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave toweep there. 11:32Then whenMary 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. 11:33When Jesus therefore sawher weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned inthe spirit, and was troubled, 11:34And said, Wherehave ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 11:35Jesus wept. 11:36Then said the Jews, Behold howhe loved him! 11:37And someof them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, havecaused that even this man should not have died? 11:38Jesus therefore again groaningin himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 11:39Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him thatwas dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath beendead four days. 11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thoushouldest see the glory of God? 11:41Then they took away the stonefrom the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted uphis eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thouhast heard me. 11:42And I knew thatthou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I saidit, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 11:43And when he thus had spoken, hecried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 11:44And he that wasdead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face wasbound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loosehim, and let him go. 11:45Then many of the Jews which cameto Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. 11:46But some of them went their waysto the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

11:47Then gathered thechief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for thisman doeth many miracles. 11:48If we let him thus alone, allmen will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take awayboth our place and nation. 11:49And one of them, namedCaiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye knownothing at all, 11:50Norconsider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for thepeople, and that the whole nation perish not. 11:51And this spake he not ofhimself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus shoulddie for that nation; 11:52Andnot for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in onethe children of God that were scattered abroad. 11:53Then from that day forth theytook counsel together for to put him to death. 11:54Jesus therefore walked no moreopenly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to thewilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with hisdisciples.

11:55And the Jews’passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up toJerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves. 11:56Then sought they for Jesus, andspake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, thathe will not come to the feast? 11:57Now both the chief priests andthe Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where hewere, he should shew it, that they might take him.

12:1Then Jesus six daysbefore the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had beendead, whom he raised from the dead. 12:2There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 12:3Then took Mary a pound ofointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, andwiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour ofthe ointment. 12:4Then saithone of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which shouldbetray him, 12:5Why was notthis ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 12:6This he said, not that he caredfor the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare whatwas put therein. 12:7Thensaid Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my buryinghath she kept this. 12:8For the pooralways ye have with you; but me ye have not always. 12:9Much people of the Jews thereforeknew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but thatthey might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

12:10But the chief priestsconsulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; 12:11Because that by reason of himmany of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

12:12On the next day muchpeople that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 12:13Tookbranches 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. 12:14And Jesus, when he hadfound a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 12:15Fear not, daughter of Sion:behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt. 12:16These things understood not hisdisciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered theythat these things were written of him, and that they had done thesethings unto him. 12:17Thepeople therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of hisgrave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. 12:18For this cause the people alsomet him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. 12:19The Pharisees therefore saidamong themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world isgone after him.

12:20And there werecertain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: 12:21The same came therefore toPhilip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir,we would see Jesus. 12:22Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.

12:23And Jesus answeredthem, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man shouldbe glorified. 12:24Verily, verily,I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, itabideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 12:25He that lovethhis life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shallkeep it unto life eternal. 12:26If any man serveme, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: ifany man serve me, him will my Father honour. 12:27Now is my soultroubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but forthis cause came I unto this hour. 12:28Father, glorifythy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, Ihave both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 12:29The people therefore, that stoodby, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angelspake to him. 12:30Jesusanswered and said, This voice came not because of me, butfor your sakes. 12:31Now is thejudgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 12:32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw allmen unto me. 12:33This he said, signifying whatdeath he should die. 12:34Thepeople answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth forever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be liftedup? who is this Son of man? 12:35Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have thelight, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darknessknoweth not whither he goeth. 12:36While ye havelight, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

12:37But though he haddone so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 12:38That the saying of Esaias theprophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed ourreport? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 12:39Therefore they could notbelieve, because that Esaias said again, 12:40He hath blinded their eyes, andhardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, norunderstand with their heart, and be converted, and I should healthem. 12:41These things saidEsaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

12:42Nevertheless amongthe chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Phariseesthey did not confess him, lest they should be put out of thesynagogue: 12:43For theyloved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

12:44Jesus cried and said,He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on himthat sent me. 12:45And he thatseeth me seeth him that sent me. 12:46I am come alight into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide indarkness. 12:47And 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. 12:48He thatrejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: theword that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 12:49For 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 speak. 12:50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoeverI speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

13:1Now before the feast of thepassover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart outof this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in theworld, he loved them unto the end. 13:2And supper being ended, the devilhaving now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, tobetray him; 13:3Jesus knowingthat the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was comefrom God, and went to God; 13:4He riseth from supper, and laidaside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 13:5After that he poureth water intoa bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe themwith the towel wherewith he was girded. 13:6Then cometh he to Simon Peter:and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 13:7Jesus answered and said unto him,What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt knowhereafter. 13:8Petersaith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 13:9Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord,not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 13:10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, butis clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 13:11For he knew who should betrayhim; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 13:12So after he hadwashed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, hesaid unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13:13Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 13:14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet;ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. 13:15For I have givenyou an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. 13:16Verily, verily,I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he thatis sent greater than he that sent him. 13:17If ye know thesethings, happy are ye if ye do them.

13:18I speak not ofyou all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may befulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel againstme. 13:19Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, yemay believe that I am he. 13:20Verily, verily,I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and hethat receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 13:21When Jesus had thus said, he wastroubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily,verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 13:22Then the disciples looked one onanother, doubting of whom he spake. 13:23Now there was leaning onJesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. 13:24Simon Peter therefore beckonedto him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. 13:25He then lying on Jesus’ breastsaith unto him, Lord, who is it? 13:26Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dippedit. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it toJudas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 13:27And after the sop Satan enteredinto him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, doquickly. 13:28Now noman at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. 13:29For some of them thought,because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy thosethings that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should givesomething to the poor. 13:30He then having received the sopwent immediately out: and it was night.

13:31Therefore, when hewas gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified,and God is glorified in him. 13:32If God beglorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shallstraightway glorify him. 13:33Little children,yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto theJews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. 13:34A newcommandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have lovedyou, that ye also love one another. 13:35By this shallall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one toanother.

13:36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord,whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thoucanst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. 13:37Peter said untohim, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thysake. 13:38Jesus answeredhim, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily,verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied methrice.

14:1Let not yourheart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 14:2In my Father’shouse are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.I go to prepare a place for you. 14:3And if I go andprepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;that where I am, there ye may be also. 14:4And whither I goye know, and the way ye know. 14:5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, weknow not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto theFather, but by me. 14:7If ye had knownme, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him,and have seen him. 14:8Philip saith unto him, Lord, shewus the Father, and it sufficeth us. 14:9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not knownme, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thouthen, Shew us the Father? 14:10Believest thounot that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speakunto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, hedoeth the works. 14:11Believe me thatI am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me forthe very works’ sake. 14:12Verily, verily,I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he doalso; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go untomy Father. 14:13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that theFather may be glorified in the Son. 14:14If ye shall askany thing in my name, I will do it.

14:15If ye love me,keep my commandments. 14:16And I will praythe Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abidewith you for ever; 14:17Even theSpirit 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 shallbe in you. 14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 14:19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye seeme: because I live, ye shall live also. 14:20At that day yeshall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 14:21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is thatloveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I willlove him, and will manifest myself to him. 14:22Judas saith unto him, notIscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and notunto the world? 14:23Jesusanswered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keepmy words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and makeour abode with him. 14:24He that lovethme not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, butthe Father’s which sent me. 14:25These thingshave I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 14:26But theComforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in myname, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to yourremembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 14:27Peace I leavewith you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I untoyou. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 14:28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and comeagain unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, Igo unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 14:29And now I havetold you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye mightbelieve. 14:30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of thisworld cometh, and hath nothing in me. 14:31But that theworld may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave mecommandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

15:1I am the truevine, and my Father is the husbandman. 15:2Every branch inme that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch thatbeareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 15:3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 15:4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit ofitself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide inme. 15:5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth inme, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me yecan do nothing. 15:6If a man abidenot in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gatherthem, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 15:7Ifye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, andit shall be done unto you. 15:8Herein is myFather glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 15:9Asthe Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 15:10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as Ihave kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 15:11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain inyou, and that your joy might be full. 15:12This is mycommandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 15:13Greater lovehath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 15:14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15:15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth notwhat his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that Ihave heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 15:16Ye have notchosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go andbring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: thatwhatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 15:17These things I command you, that ye love one another. 15:18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before ithated you. 15:19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: butbecause ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world,therefore the world hateth you. 15:20Remember theword that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. Ifthey have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have keptmy saying, they will keep yours also. 15:21But all thesethings will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know nothim that sent me. 15:22If I had notcome and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have nocloke for their sin. 15:23He that hatethme hateth my Father also. 15:24If I had notdone 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. 15:25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilledthat is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 15:26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you fromthe Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from theFather, he shall testify of me: 15:27And ye alsoshall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

16:1These things have I spoken untoyou, that ye should not be offended. 16:2They shall putyou out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killethyou will think that he doeth God service. 16:3And these thingswill they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 16:4But 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 untoyou at the beginning, because I was with you. 16:5But now I go myway to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 16:6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hathfilled your heart. 16:7Nevertheless Itell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I gonot away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I willsend him unto you. 16:8And when he iscome, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and ofjudgment: 16:9Of sin, because they believe not on me; 16:10Ofrighteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 16:11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 16:12Ihave yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 16:13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide youinto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shallhear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 16:14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shallshew it unto you. 16:15All things thatthe Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine,and shall shew it unto you. 16:16A little while,and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me,because I go to the Father. 16:17Then said some of hisdisciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a littlewhile, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father? 16:18They saidtherefore, What is this that he saith, A littlewhile? we cannot tell what he saith. 16:19Now Jesus knew that they weredesirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquireamong yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me:and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? 16:20Verily, verily,I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shallrejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned intojoy. 16:21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour iscome: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth nomore the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 16:22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, andyour heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. 16:23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I sayunto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will giveit you. 16:24Hitherto have yeasked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may befull. 16:25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the timecometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shewyou plainly of the Father. 16:26At that day yeshall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Fatherfor you: 16:27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, andhave believed that I came out from God. 16:28I came forthfrom the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, andgo to the Father. 16:29His disciples said unto him, Lo,now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 16:30Now are we sure that thouknowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by thiswe believe that thou camest forth from God. 16:31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 16:32Behold, the hourcometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to hisown, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Fatheris with me. 16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might havepeace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; Ihave overcome the world.

17:1These words spake Jesus, andlifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the houris come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 17:2Asthou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal lifeto as many as thou hast given him. 17:3And this is lifeeternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ,whom thou hast sent. 17:4I have glorifiedthee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 17:5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with theglory which I had with thee before the world was. 17:6I have manifestedthy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine theywere, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 17:7Now they haveknown that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 17:8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; andthey have received them, and have known surely that I came out fromthee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 17:9I pray for them:I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for theyare thine. 17:10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorifiedin them. 17:11And 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 whomthou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 17:12While I was withthem in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me Ihave kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that thescripture might be fulfilled. 17:13And now come Ito thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have myjoy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14I have giventhem thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of theworld, even as I am not of the world. 17:15I pray not thatthou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keepthem from the evil. 17:16They are not ofthe world, even as I am not of the world. 17:17Sanctify themthrough thy truth: thy word is truth. 17:18As thou hastsent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 17:19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might besanctified through the truth. 17:20Neither pray Ifor these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through theirword; 17:21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, andI in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believethat thou hast sent me. 17:22And the glorywhich thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as weare one: 17:23I 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. 17:24Father, I willthat they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that theymay behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me beforethe foundation of the world. 17:25O righteousFather, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and thesehave known that thou hast sent me. 17:26And I havedeclared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the lovewherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

18:1When Jesus had spoken thesewords, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was agarden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. 18:2And Judas also, which betrayedhim, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with hisdisciples. 18:3Judas then,having received a band of men and officers from the chief priestsand Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 18:4Jesus therefore, knowingall things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them,Whom seek ye? 18:5They answered him, Jesus ofNazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he.And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 18:6As soon then as he had said untothem, I am he, they went backward, and fellto the ground. 18:7Then askedhe them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesusof Nazareth. 18:8Jesusanswered, I have told you that I am he: iftherefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 18:9That the saying might befulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest mehave I lost none. 18:10Then Simon Peter having a sworddrew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear.The servant’s name was Malchus. 18:11Then said Jesus unto Peter,Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Fatherhath given me, shall I not drink it? 18:12Then the band and the captainand officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 18:13And led him away to Annas first;for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that sameyear. 18:14Now Caiaphas washe, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one manshould die for the people.

18:15And Simon Peterfollowed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple wasknown unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of thehigh priest. 18:16But Peterstood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which wasknown unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, andbrought in Peter. 18:17Thensaith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou alsoone of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not. 18:18And the servants and officersstood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and theywarmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

18:19The high priest thenasked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 18:20Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, andin the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I saidnothing. 18:21Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have saidunto them: behold, they know what I said. 18:22And when he had thus spoken, oneof the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand,saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? 18:23Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well,why smitest thou me? 18:24Now Annas had sent him boundunto Caiaphas the high priest. 18:25And Simon Peter stood and warmedhimself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of hisdisciples? He denied it, and said, I am not. 18:26One of the servants of the highpriest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not Isee thee in the garden with him? 18:27Peter then denied again: andimmediately the cock crew.

18:28Then led they Jesusfrom Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and theythemselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled;but that they might eat the passover. 18:29Pilate then went out unto them,and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? 18:30They answered and said unto him,If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee. 18:31Then said Pilate untothem, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews thereforesaid unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: 18:32That the saying of Jesus mightbe fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die. 18:33Then Pilate entered into thejudgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou theKing of the Jews? 18:34Jesusanswered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or didothers tell it thee of me? 18:35Pilate answered, Am I a Jew?Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: whathast thou done? 18:36Jesusanswered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdomwere of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not bedelivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 18:37Pilate thereforesaid unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thousayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came Iinto the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one thatis of the truth heareth my voice. 18:38Pilate saith unto him, What istruth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, andsaith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. 18:39But ye have a custom, that Ishould release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that Irelease unto you the King of the Jews? 18:40Then cried they all again,saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

19:1Then Pilate thereforetook Jesus, and scourged him. 19:2And the soldiers platted a crownof thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purplerobe, 19:3And said, Hail,King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 19:4Pilate therefore went forthagain, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye mayknow that I find no fault in him. 19:5Then came Jesus forth, wearingthe crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith untothem, Behold the man! 19:6When the chief priests thereforeand officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucifyhim. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him:for I find no fault in him. 19:7The Jews answered him, We have alaw, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son ofGod.

19:8When Pilate thereforeheard that saying, he was the more afraid; 19:9And went again into the judgmenthall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. 19:10Then saith Pilate untohim, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power tocrucify thee, and have power to release thee? 19:11Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except itwere given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee haththe greater sin. 19:12And from thenceforth Pilatesought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let thisman go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a kingspeaketh against Caesar.

19:13When Pilate thereforeheard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgmentseat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. 19:14And it was thepreparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith untothe Jews, Behold your King! 19:15But they cried out, Away withhim, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them,Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king butCaesar. 19:16Then deliveredhe him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and ledhim away. 19:17And hebearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of askull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 19:18Where they crucified him, andtwo others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

19:19And Pilate wrote atitle, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OFNAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. 19:20This title then read many of theJews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and itwas written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. 19:21Then said the chief priests ofthe Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, Iam King of the Jews. 19:22Pilate answered, What I havewritten I have written.

19:23Then the soldiers,when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, toevery soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was withoutseam, woven from the top throughout. 19:24They said therefore amongthemselves, 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 raimentamong them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things thereforethe soldiers did.

19:25Now there stood bythe cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary thewife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 19:26When Jesus therefore saw hismother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto hismother, Woman, behold thy son! 19:27Then saith he to the disciple,Behold thy mother! And from that hour that discipletook her unto his own home.

19:28After this, Jesusknowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might befulfilled, saith, I thirst. 19:29Now there was set a vessel fullof vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it uponhyssop, and put it to his mouth. 19:30When Jesus therefore hadreceived the vinegar, he said, It is finished: andhe bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. 19:31The Jews therefore, because itwas the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross onthe sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilatethat their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 19:32Then came the soldiers,and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified withhim. 19:33But when they cameto Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 19:34But one of the soldierswith a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood andwater. 19:35And he that sawit bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that hesaith true, that ye might believe. 19:36For these things were done, thatthe scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 19:37And again anotherscripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

19:38And after this Josephof Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of theJews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: andPilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body ofJesus. 19:39And there camealso Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought amixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. 19:40Then took they the body ofJesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of theJews is to bury. 19:41Now inthe place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden anew sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. 19:42There laid they Jesus thereforebecause of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nighat hand.

20:1The first dayof the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto thesepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 20:2Then she runneth, and cometh toSimon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith untothem, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know notwhere they have laid him. 20:3Peter therefore went forth, andthat other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 20:4So they ran both together: andthe other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 20:5And he stooping down,and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 20:6Then cometh Simon Peterfollowing him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clotheslie, 20:7And the napkin, thatwas about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped togetherin a place by itself. 20:8Then went in also that otherdisciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 20:9For as yet they knew notthe scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 20:10Then the disciples went awayagain unto their own home.

20:11But Mary stoodwithout at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down,and looked into the sepulchre, 20:12And seeth two angels in whitesitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body ofJesus had lain. 20:13And theysay unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because theyhave taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 20:14And when she had thus said, sheturned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it wasJesus. 20:15Jesus saith untoher, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou haveborne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take himaway. 20:16Jesus saith untoher, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him,Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 20:17Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go tomy brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father;and to my God, and your God. 20:18Mary Magdalene came and told thedisciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken thesethings unto her.

20:19Then the same day atevening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shutwhere the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus andstood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace beunto you. 20:20Andwhen he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side.Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. 20:21Then said Jesus to them again,Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sentme, even so send I you. 20:22And when he had said this, hebreathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive yethe Holy Ghost: 20:23Whose soeversins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soeversins ye retain, they are retained.

20:24But Thomas, one of the twelve,called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 20:25The other disciples thereforesaid unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except Ishall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into theprint of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

20:26And after eight daysagain his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then cameJesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 20:27Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hitherthy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, butbelieving. 20:28AndThomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 20:29Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessedare they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

20:30And many other signs truly didJesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in thisbook: 20:31But these arewritten, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God;and that believing ye might have life through his name.

21:1After these thingsJesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and onthis wise shewed he himself. 21:2There were together Simon Peter,and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and thesons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 21:3Simon Peter saith unto them, I goa fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, andentered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 21:4But when the morning wasnow come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it wasJesus. 21:5Then Jesus saithunto them, Children, have ye any meat? Theyanswered him, No. 21:6And hesaid unto them, Cast the net on the right side of theship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were notable to draw it for the multitude of fishes. 21:7Therefore that disciple whomJesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heardthat it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him,(for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. 21:8And the other disciples came in alittle ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundredcubits,) dragging the net with fishes. 21:9As soon then as they were come toland, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 21:10Jesus saith unto them,Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 21:11Simon Peter went up, and drewthe net to land full of great fishes, and hundred and fifty and three: andfor all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 21:12Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst askhim, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 21:13Jesus then cometh, and takethbread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 21:14This is now the third time thatJesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from thedead.

21:15So when they haddined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son ofJonas, 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. 21:16He saith to him again the secondtime, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith untohim, Feed my sheep. 21:17He saith unto him the thirdtime, 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 Ilove thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 21:18Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thougirdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shaltbe old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee,and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. 21:19This spake he, signifying bywhat death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saithunto him, Follow me. 21:20Then Peter, turning about, seeththe disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breastat supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 21:21Peter seeing him saith to Jesus,Lord, and what shall this man do? 21:22Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that tothee? follow thou me. 21:23Then went this saying abroadamong the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said notunto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarrytill I come, what is that to thee? 21:24This is the disciple whichtestifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that histestimony is true. 21:25Andthere are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if theyshould be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself couldnot contain the books that should be written.
