might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but [came] that he might bear witness of the light.
9 There was the true light, [even the light] which lighteth every man, coming
into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of
God, [even] to them that believe on his name:
13 which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will
of man, but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory
as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.
15 ∂ John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, This was he of whom I

19 ∂ And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him from
priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith, I am not. Art
thou the prophet? And he answered, No.
22 They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to
them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the
way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.

me, Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon him,
the same is he that baptizeth with the Holy Spirit.

39 He saith unto them, Come, and ye shall see. They came therefore and saw where

to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the ruler of the feast.
And they bare it.

whence it was (but the servants which had drawn the water knew), the ruler of
the feast calleth the bridegroom,

glory; and his disciples believed on him.

abode not many days.

changers of money sitting:
15 and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the
sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changersí money, and overthrew their
16 and to them that sold the doves he said, Take these things hence; make not my
Fatherís house a house of merchandise.
17 His disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house shall
eat me up.
18 The Jews therefore answered and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto
us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I
will raise it up.
20 The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and
wilt thou raise it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he
spake this; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23 ∂ Now when he was in
at the passover, during the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his
signs which he did.
24 But Jesus did not trust himself unto them, for that he knew all men,
25 and because he needed not that any one should bear witness concerning man;
for he himself knew what was in man.
1 ∂ Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came unto him by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that thou art
a teacher come from God: for no man can do these signs that thou doest, except
God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born anew, he cannot see the

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou the teacher of

11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and bear witness
of that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I
tell you heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended out of heaven,
[even] the Son of man, which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of
man be lifted up:
15 that whosoever believeth may in him have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.
17 For God sent not the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the
world should be saved through him.
18 He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been
judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten
Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men
loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doeth ill hateth the light, and cometh not to the light,
lest his works should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made
manifest, that they have been wrought in God.

23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much
water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 There arose therefore a questioning on the part of Johnís disciples with a
Jew about purifying.
26 And they came unto John, and said to him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond
Jordan, to whom thou hast borne witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men
come to him.
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it have been given
him from heaven.
28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but, that I
am sent before him.
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom,
which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroomís

31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is of the
earth, and of the earth he speaketh: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

7 There cometh a woman of

8 For his disciples were gone away into the city to buy food.
9 The Samaritan woman therefore saith unto him, How is it that thou, being a
Jew, askest drink of me, which am a Samaritan woman? (For Jews have no dealings
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it
is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he
would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well
is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank
thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?

but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water

come all the way hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said unto him, I have no husband. Jesus saith unto
her, Thou saidst well, I have no husband:
18 for thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy
husband: this hast thou said truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in

this mountain, nor in

22 Ye worship that which ye know not: we worship that which we know: for
salvation is from the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the
Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

Christ): when he is come, he will declare unto us all things.

8 Jesus saith unto him, Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.

The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what
things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth:
and greater works than these will he shew him, that ye may marvel.
21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and quickeneth them, even so the Son also
quickeneth whom he will.
22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment
unto the Son;
23 that all may honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that
honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which sent him.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him
that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed
out of death into life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead
shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to
have life in himself:
27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs
shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of
life; and they that have done ill, unto the resurrection of judgment.
30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous;
because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

a season in his light.
36 But the witness which I have is greater than [that of] John: for the works
which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear
witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father which sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither
heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe
39 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life;
and these are they which bear witness of me;
40 and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
41 I receive not glory from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves.
43 I am come in my Fatherís name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come
in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive glory one of another, and the glory that

which is [the sea] of Tiberias.
2 And a great multitude followed him, because they beheld the signs which he did
on them that were sick.
3 And Jesus went up into the mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
4 Now the passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
5 Jesus therefore lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a great multitude cometh
unto him, saith unto Philip, Whence are we to buy bread, that these may eat?
6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for
them, that every one may take a little.
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peterís brother, saith unto him,
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two fishes: but what
are these among so many?
10 Jesus said, Make the people sit down. Now there was much grass in the place.
So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11 Jesus therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to
them that were set down; likewise also of the fishes as much as they would.
12 And when they were filled, he saith unto his disciples, Gather up the broken
pieces which remain over, that nothing be lost.
13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from
the five barley loaves, which remained over unto them that had eaten.
14 When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, This is of a
truth the prophet that cometh into the world.

boat was at the land whither they were going.

that there was none other boat there, save one, and that Jesus entered not with
his disciples into the boat, but [that] his disciples went away alone

the bread after the Lord had given thanks):

disciples, they themselves got into the boats, and came to Capernaum, seeking
25 And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him,
Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not
because ye saw signs, but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Work not for the meat which perisheth, but for the meat which abideth unto
eternal life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him the Father,
[even] God, hath sealed.
28 ∂ They said therefore unto him, What must we do, that we may work the works
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What then doest thou for a sign, that we may
see, and believe thee? what workest thou?
31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, He gave them
bread out of heaven to eat.
32 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, It was not
Moses that gave you the bread out of heaven; but my Father giveth you the true
bread out of heaven.
33 For the bread of God is that which cometh down out of heaven, and giveth life
unto the world.
34 They said therefore unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
35 Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not
hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, that ye have seen me, and yet believe not.
37 All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me; and him that cometh
to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him
that sent me.
39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all that which he hath
given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
40 For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholdeth the Son, and
believeth on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last
41 The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, I am the bread
which came down out of heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother
we know? how doth he now say, I am come down out of heaven?
43 Jesus answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which sent me draw him: and I will
raise him up in the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every one
that hath heard from the Father, and hath learned, cometh unto me.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is from God, he hath
seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth hath eternal life.
48 I am the bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
50 This is the bread which cometh down out of heaven, that a man may eat
thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven: if any man eat of this
bread, he shall live for ever: yea and the bread which I will give is my flesh,
for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove one with another, saying, How can this man give us
his flesh to eat?
53 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat
the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves.
54 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life; and I will
raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he that
eateth me, he also shall live because of me.
58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven: not as the fathers did eat,
and died: he that eateth this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in
60 ∂ Many therefore of his disciples, when they heard [this], said, This is a
hard saying; who can hear it?
61 But Jesus knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said unto
them, Doth this cause you to stumble?
62 [What] then if ye should behold the Son of man ascending where he was before?
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that
I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life.
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning
who they were that believed not, and who it was that should betray him.
65 And he said, For this cause have I said unto you, that no man can come unto
me, except it be given unto him of the Father.
66 Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Jesus said therefore unto the twelve, Would ye also go away?
68 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of
69 And we have believed and know that thou art the Holy One of God.
70 Jesus answered them, Did not I choose you the twelve, and one of you is a
71 Now he spake of Judas [the son] of Simon Iscariot, for he it was that should
betray him, [being] one of the twelve.
1 ∂ And after these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in
, because the Jews sought to kill him.
2 Now the feast of the Jews, the feast of tabernacles, was at hand.
3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into
, that thy disciples also may behold thy works which thou doest.
4 For no man doeth anything in secret, and himself seeketh to be known openly.
If thou doest these things, manifest thyself to the world.
5 For even his brethren did not believe on him.
6 Jesus therefore saith unto them, My time is not yet come; but your time is
7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that its
works are evil.
8 Go ye up unto the feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; because my time is
not yet fulfilled.
9 And having said these things unto them, he abode [still] in
10 But when his brethren were gone up unto the feast, then went he also up, not
publicly, but as it were in secret.
11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
12 And there was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him: some said,
He is a good man; others said, Not so, but he leadeth the multitude astray.
13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
14 ∂ But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple,
15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having
16 Jesus therefore answered them, and said, My teaching is not mine, but his
that sent me.
17 If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it
be of God, or [whether] I speak from myself.
18 He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the
glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
19 Did not Moses give you the law, and [yet] none of you doeth the law? Why seek
ye to kill me?
20 The multitude answered, Thou hast a devil: who seeketh to kill thee?
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I did one work, and ye all marvel.
22 For this cause hath Moses given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses,
but of the fathers); and on the sabbath ye circumcise a man.
23 If a man receiveth circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not
be broken; are ye wroth with me, because I made a man every whit whole on the
24 Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25 Some therefore of them of
said, Is not this he whom they seek to kill?
26 And lo, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing unto him. Can it be that the
rulers indeed know that this is the Christ?
27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no one
knoweth whence he is.
28 Jesus therefore cried in the temple, teaching and saying, Ye both know me,
and know whence I am; and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true,
whom ye know not.
29 I know him; because I am from him, and he sent me.
30 They sought therefore to take him: and no man laid his hand on him, because
his hour was not yet come.
31 But of the multitude many believed on him; and they said, When the Christ
shall come, will he do more signs than those which this man hath done?
32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him; and
the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to take him.
33 Jesus therefore said, Yet a little while am I with you, and I go unto him
that sent me.
34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, ye cannot come.
35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, Whither will this man go that we
shall not find him? will he go unto the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach
36 What is this word that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and
where I am, ye cannot come?
37 ∂ Now on the last day, the great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall
flow rivers of living water.
39 But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to
receive: for the Spirit was not yet [given]; because Jesus was not yet
40 [Some] of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is
of a truth the prophet.
41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, What, doth the Christ come
42 Hath not the scripture said that the Christ cometh of the seed of David, and
, the village where David was?
43 So there arose a division in the multitude because of him.
44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
45 ∂ The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they
said unto them, Why did ye not bring him?
46 The officers answered, Never man so spake.
47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, Are ye also led astray?
48 Hath any of the rulers believed on him, or of the Pharisees?
49 But this multitude which knoweth not the law are accursed.
50 Nicodemus saith unto them (he that came to him before, being one of them),
51 Doth our law judge a man, except it first hear from himself and know what he

? Search, and see that out of
ariseth no prophet.
53 [And they went every man unto his own house:
1 ∂ but Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people
came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery; and having
set her in the midst,
4 they say unto him, Master, this woman hath been taken in adultery, in the very
5 Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such: what then sayest thou of her?
6 And this they said, tempting him, that they might have [whereof] to accuse
him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.
7 But when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them,
He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.
9 And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest,
[even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in

man condemn thee?
11 And she said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go thy
way; from henceforth sin no more.]
12 ∂ Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the
light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest witness of thyself; thy
witness is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Even if I bear witness of myself, my
witness is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye know not
whence I come, or whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 Yea and if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I and the
Father that sent me.
17 Yea and in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true.
18 I am he that beareth witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth
witness of me.
19 They said therefore unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye know
neither me, nor my Father: if ye knew me, ye would know my Father also.
20 These words spake he in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man
took him; because his hour was not yet come.
21 ∂ He said therefore again unto them, I go away, and ye shall seek me, and
shall die in your sin: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, that he saith, Whither I go,
ye cannot come?
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this
world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye
believe that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.
25 They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? Jesus said unto them, Even that
which I have also spoken unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you: howbeit he that sent
me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these speak I unto the world.
27 They perceived not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Jesus therefore said, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye
know that I am [he], and [that] I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught
me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me; he hath not left me alone; for I do always
the things that are pleasing to him.
30 As he spake these things, many believed on him.
31 ∂ Jesus therefore said to those Jews which had believed him, If ye abide in
my word, [then] are ye truly my disciples;
32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered unto him, We be Abrahamís seed, and have never yet been in
bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Every one that
committeth sin is the bondservant of sin.
35 And the bondservant abideth not in the house for ever: the son abideth for
36 If therefore the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abrahamís seed; yet ye seek to kill me, because my word
hath not free course in you.
38 ∂ I speak the things which I have seen with [my] Father: and ye also do the
things which ye heard from [your] father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Our father is Abraham. Jesus saith unto
them, If ye were Abrahamís children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I heard
from God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the works of your father. They said unto him, We were not born of
fornication; we have one Father, [even] God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came
forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? [Even] because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your
will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stood not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his
own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
45 But because I say the truth, ye believe me not.
46 ∂ Which of you convicteth me of sin? If I say truth, why do ye not believe
47 He that is of God heareth the words of God: for this cause ye hear [them]
not, because ye are not of God.
48 The Jews answered and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a
Samaritan, and hast a devil?
49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye dishonour
50 But I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
51 ∂ Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my word, he shall never see
52 The Jews said unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead,
and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my word, he shall never taste
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are
dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father
that glorifieth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God;
55 and ye have not known him: but I know him; and if I should say, I know him
not, I shall be like unto you, a liar: but I know him, and keep his word.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it, and was glad.

thou seen Abraham?

out of the temple.
1 ∂ And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who did sin, this man, or his
parents, that he should be born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works
of God should be made manifest in him.
4 We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh,
when no man can work.
5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle,
and anointed his eyes with the clay,
7 and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation,
Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 ∂ The neighbours therefore, and they which saw him aforetime, that he was a
beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him. He said, I am

11 He answered, The man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes,
and said unto me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away and washed, and I

13 ∂ They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14 Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his

he said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16 Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he
keepeth not the sabbath. But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such
signs? And there was a division among them.
17 They say therefore unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, in that
he opened thine eyes? And he said, He is a prophet.
18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind,
and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had
received his sight,
19 and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then
doth he now see?
20 His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was
21 but how he now seeth, we know not; or who opened his eyes, we know not: ask
him; he is of age; he shall speak for himself.
22 These things said his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had
agreed already, that if any man should confess him [to be] Christ, he should be
put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give
glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He therefore answered, Whether he be a sinner, I know not: one thing I know,
that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not hear: wherefore would
ye hear it again? would ye also become his disciples?
28 And they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples
29 We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we know not
whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know
not whence he is, and [yet] he opened mine eyes.
31 We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God,
and do his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a
man born blind.
33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost
thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 ∂ Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and finding him, he said, Dost
thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with

39 ∂ And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they which see
not may see; and that they which see may become blind.
40 Those of the Pharisees which were with him heard these things, and said unto
him, Are we also blind?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin: but now ye say,
We see: your sin remaineth.

fold of the sheep, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a

3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his
own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 When he hath put forth all his own, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow
him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not
the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they
were which he spake unto them.
7 Jesus therefore said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the
door of the sheep.
8 All that came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in
and go out, and shall find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came
that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd layeth down his life for the sheep.
12 He that is a hireling, and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not,
beholdeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth, and the wolf
snatcheth them, and scattereth [them]:
13 [he fleeth] because he is a hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd; and I know mine own, and mine own know me,
15 even as the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father; and I lay down my life
for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice; and they shall become one flock, one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may
take it again.
18 No one taketh it away from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to
lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment received I from
19 ∂ There arose a division again among the Jews because of these words.
20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
21 Others said, These are not the sayings of one possessed with a devil. Can a
devil open the eyes of the blind?
22 ∂ And it was the feast of the dedication at
: it was winter;
23 and Jesus was walking in the temple in Solomonís porch.
24 The Jews therefore came round about him, and said unto him, How long dost
thou hold us in suspense? If thou art the Christ, tell us plainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believe not: the works that I do in
my Fatherís name, these bear witness of me.
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, and no one
shall snatch them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which hath given [them] unto me, is greater than all; and no one
is able to snatch [them] out of the Fatherís hand.
30 I and the Father are one.
31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from the Father; for
which of those works do ye stone me?
33 The Jews answered him, For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy;
and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture
cannot be broken),
36 say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou
blasphemest; because I said, I am [the] Son of God?
37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
38 But if I do them, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may
know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.
39 ∂ They sought again to take him: and he went forth out of their hand.
40 And he went away again beyond
into the place where John was at the first baptizing; and there he abode.
41 And many came unto him; and they said, John indeed did no sign: but all
things whatsoever John spake of this man were true.
42 And many believed on him there.
1 ∂ Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the
and her sister Martha.
2 And it was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet
with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
3 The sisters therefore sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest
4 But when Jesus heard it, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the
glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified thereby.
5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
6 When therefore he heard that he was sick, he abode at that time two days in
the place where he was.
7 Then after this he saith to the disciples, Let us go into

thee; and goest thou thither again?

day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.
10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in

is fallen asleep; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12 The disciples therefore said unto him, Lord, if he is fallen asleep, he will
13 Now Jesus had spoken of his death: but they thought that he spake of taking
rest in sleep.
14 Then Jesus therefore said unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may
believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
16 Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said unto his fellowĖdisciples,
Let us also go, that we may die with him.
17 ∂ So when Jesus came, he found that he had been in the tomb four days
Joh 11:18 Now

Mary still sat in the house.
21 Martha therefore said unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother
had not died.
22 And even now I know that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at
the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth
on me, though he die, yet shall he live:
26 and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the
Son of God, [even] he that cometh into the world.
28 And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister
secretly, saying, The Master is here, and calleth thee.
29 And she, when she heard it, arose quickly, and went unto him.
30 (Now Jesus was not yet come into the village, but was still in the place
where Martha met him.)
31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and were comforting her, when
they saw Mary, that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing
that she was going unto the tomb to weep there.
32 Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, and saw him, fell down at his
feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33 ∂ When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews [also] weeping which
came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
34 and said, Where have ye laid him? They say unto him, Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 The Jews therefore said, Behold how he loved him!
37 But some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of him that
was blind, have caused that this man also should not die?
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the tomb. Now it was a
cave, and a stone lay against it.
39 Jesus saith, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead,
saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been [dead] four
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou
shouldest see the glory of God?
41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father,
I thank thee that thou heardest me.
42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the multitude which
standeth around I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me.
43 And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44 He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveĖclothes; and
his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and
let him go.
45 ∂ Many therefore of the Jews, which came to Mary and beheld that which he
did, believed on him.
46 But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which
Jesus had done.
47 The chief priests therefore and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said,
What do we? for this man doeth many signs.
48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans will
come and take away both our place and our nation.
49 But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said unto
them, Ye know nothing at all,
50 nor do ye take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die
for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
51 Now this he said not of himself: but being high priest that year, he
prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation;
52 and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one
the children of God that are scattered abroad.
53 So from that day forth they took counsel that they might put him to death.
54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews, but departed thence
into the country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim; and there
he tarried with the disciples.
55 Now the passover of the Jews was at hand: and many went up to
out of the country before the passover, to purify themselves.
56 They sought therefore for Jesus, and spake one with another, as they stood in
the temple, What think ye? That he will not come to the feast?
57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commandment, that, if any
man knew where he was, he should shew it, that they might take him.
1 ∂ Jesus therefore six days before the passover came to
, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead.
2 So they made him a supper there: and Martha served; but Lazarus was one of
them that sat at meat with him.
3 Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very precious, and
anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was
filled with the odour of the ointment.
4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, which should betray him, saith,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6 Now this he said, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a
thief, and having the bag took away what was put therein.
7 Jesus therefore said, Suffer her to keep it against the day of my burying.
8 For the poor ye have always with you; but me ye have not always.
9 The common people therefore of the Jews learned that he was there: and they
came, not for Jesusí sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he
had raised from the dead.
10 But the chief priests took counsel that they might put Lazarus also to death;
11 because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on

heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
13 took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried
out, Hosanna: Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord, even the King
14 And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
15 Fear not, daughter of
: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an assís colt.
16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was
glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that
they had done these things unto him.
17 The multitude therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of the
tomb, and raised him from the dead, bare witness.
18 For this cause also the multitude went and met him, for that they heard that
he had done this sign.
19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Behold how ye prevail nothing:
lo, the world is gone after him.
20 ∂ Now there were certain Greeks among those that went up to worship at the

him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: Andrew cometh, and Philip, and they tell

should be glorified.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the earth
and die, it abideth by itself alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit.
25 He that loveth his life loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world
shall keep it unto life eternal.
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my
servant be: if any man serve me, him will the Father honour.
27 ∂ Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this
hour. But for this cause came I unto this hour.
28 Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice out of heaven,
[saying], I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
29 The multitude therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it had
thundered: others said, An angel hath spoken to him.
30 Jesus answered and said, This voice hath not come for my sake, but for your

32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself.
33 But this he said, signifying by what manner of death he should die.
34 The multitude therefore answered him, We have heard out of the law that the
Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up?
who is this Son of man?
35 Jesus therefore said unto them, Yet a little while is the light among you.
Walk while ye have the light, that darkness overtake you not: and he that
walketh in the darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
36 While ye have the light, believe on the light, that ye may become sons of
light. These things spake Jesus, and he departed and hid himself from them.

42 ∂ Nevertheless even of the rulers many believed on him; but because of the
Pharisees they did not confess [it], lest they should be put out of the

44 ∂ And Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me,
but on him that sent me.
45 And he that beholdeth me beholdeth him that sent me.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me may not
abide in the darkness.
47 And if any man hear my sayings, and keep them not, I judge him not: for I
came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my sayings, hath one that judgeth
him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I spake not from myself; but the Father which sent me, he hath given me a
commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal: the things therefore which I
speak, even as the Father hath said unto me, so I speak.
1 ∂ Now before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour was come
that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own
which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
2 And during supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas
Iscariot, Simonís [son], to betray him,
3 [Jesus], knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that
he came forth from God, and goeth unto God,
4 riseth from supper, and layeth aside his garments; and he took a towel, and
5 Then he poureth water into the bason, and began to wash the disciplesí feet,
and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 So he cometh to Simon Peter. He saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou
shalt understand hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I
wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my

is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew him that should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all
12 So when he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and sat down again,
he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call me, Master, and, Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, the Lord and the Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to
wash one anotherís feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye also should do as I have done to

may be fulfilled, He that eateth my bread lifted up his heel against me.

20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth
me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in the spirit, and testified, and
said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 The disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
23 There was at the table reclining in Jesusí bosom one of his disciples, whom
24 Simon Peter therefore beckoneth to him, and saith unto him, Tell [us] who it
is of whom he speaketh.
25 He leaning back, as he was, on Jesusí breast saith unto him, Lord, who is

it him. So when he had dipped the sop, he taketh and giveth it to Judas, [the
son] of Simon Iscariot.
27 And after the sop, then entered Satan into him. Jesus therefore saith unto
him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
29 For some thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus said unto him, Buy

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

manifest myself unto him.
22 Judas (not Iscariot) saith unto him, Lord, what is come to pass that thou
wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my word: and
my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me.

16 Ye did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that ye should go
and bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide: that whatsoever ye shall ask
of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

lord. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they kept my word,
they will keep yours also.

know not him that sent me.

have no excuse for their sin.

righteousness, and of judgment:

ye inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said, A little while, and ye
behold me not, and again a little while, and ye shall see me?
20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that ye shall weep and lament, but the world
shall rejoice: ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but
when she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for the
joy that a man is born into the world.

shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.

ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

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

given him, to them he should give eternal life.
3 And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and
him whom thou didst send, [even] Jesus Christ.

given me to do.

I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; that the
scripture might be fulfilled.
13 But now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may
have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hated them, because they are not of
the world, even as I am not of the world.

shouldest keep them from the evil [one].

disciple was known unto the high priest, and entered in with Jesus into the
court of the high priest;

known unto the high priest, went out and spake unto her that kept the door, and
brought in Peter.
17 The maid therefore that kept the door saith unto Peter, Art thou also [one]
of this manís disciples? He saith, I am not.
18 Now the servants and the officers were standing [there], having made a fire
of coals; for it was cold; and they were warming themselves: and Peter also was
with them, standing and warming himself.

20 Jesus answered him, I have spoken openly to the world; I ever taught in
synagogues, and in the temple, where all the Jews come together; and in secret
spake I nothing.
21 Why askest thou me? ask them that have heard [me], what I spake unto them:
behold, these know the things which I said.
22 And when he had said this, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with
his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if
well, why smitest thou me?

him, Art thou also [one] of his disciples? He denied, and said, I am not.

but might eat the passover.
29 Pilate therefore went out unto them, and saith, What accusation bring ye
against this man?
30 They answered and said unto him, If this man were not an evilĖdoer, we
should not have delivered him up unto thee.
31 Pilate therefore said unto them, Take him yourselves, and judge him according
to your law. The Jews said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to
32 that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying by what
manner of death he should die.
33 Pilate therefore entered again into the palace, and called Jesus, and said
unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
34 Jesus answered, Sayest thou this of thyself, or did others tell it thee
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests delivered
thee unto me: what hast thou done?
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this
world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews:
but now is my kingdom not from hence.
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou
sayest that I am a king. To this end have I been born, and to this end am I come
into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of
the truth heareth my voice.
38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out
again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find no crime in him.
39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover:
will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
40 They cried out therefore again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now
Barabbas was a robber.
1 ∂ Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
2 And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and
arrayed him in a purple garment;
3 and they came unto him, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they struck him
with their hands.
4 And Pilate went out again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him out to
you, that ye may know that I find no crime in him.
5 Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.
And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold, the man!
6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out,
saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]. Pilate saith unto them, Take him
yourselves, and crucify him: for I find no crime in him.
7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by that law he ought to die, because
he made himself the Son of God.
8 When Pilate therefore heard this saying, he was the more afraid;
9 and he entered into the palace again, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou?
But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Pilate therefore saith unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not
that I have power to release thee, and have power to crucify thee?
11 Jesus answered him, Thou wouldest have no power against me, except it were
given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath greater
12 Upon this Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If
thou release this man, thou art not Caesarís friend: every one that maketh
himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
13 When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down
on the judgmentĖseat at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 Now it was the Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And
he saith unto the Jews, Behold, your King!
15 They therefore cried out, Away with [him], away with [him], crucify him.
Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered,
We have no king but Caesar.
16 ∂ Then therefore he delivered him unto them to be crucified.
17 They took Jesus therefore: and he went out, bearing the cross for himself,
unto the place called The place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha:
18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and
Jesus in the midst.
19 ∂ And Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. And there was
written, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20 This title therefore read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was
crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, [and] in Latin,
[and] in Greek.
21 The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, Write not, The King
of the Jews; but, that he said, I am King of the Jews.
22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and
made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also the coat: now the coat was
without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore one to another, 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 garments among them, And upon my vesture did they cast lots. These
things therefore the soldiers did.
25 But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his motherís
sister, Mary the [wife] of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he
loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold, thy son!
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold, thy mother! And from that hour the
disciple took her unto his own [home].
28 After this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the
scripture might be accomplished, saith, I thirst.
29 There was set there a vessel full of vinegar: so they put a sponge full of
the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and
he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
31 ∂ The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, that the bodies should
not remain on the cross upon the sabbath (for the day of that sabbath was a high
[day]), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might
be taken away.
32 The soldiers therefore came, and brake the legs of the first, and of the
other which was crucified with him:
33 but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not
34 howbeit one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and straightway
there came out blood and water.
35 And he that hath seen hath borne witness, and his witness is true: and he
knoweth that he saith true, that ye also may believe.
36 For these things came to pass, that the scripture might be fulfilled, A bone
of him shall not be broken.
37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
38 ∂ And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus,
but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away the
body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave. He came therefore, and took away his
39 And there came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to him by night,
bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds [weight].
40 So they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices,
as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden
a new tomb wherein was never man yet laid.
42 There then because of the Jewsí Preparation (for the tomb was nigh at hand)
they laid Jesus.
1 ∂ Now on the first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, while it
was yet dark, unto the tomb, and seeth the stone taken away from the tomb.
2 She runneth therefore, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple,
whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the
tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.
3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the
4 And they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came
first to the tomb;
5 and stooping and looking in, he seeth the linen cloths lying; yet entered he
6 Simon Peter therefore also cometh, following him, and entered into the tomb;
and he beholdeth the linen cloths lying,
7 and the napkin, that was upon his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but
rolled up in a place by itself.
8 Then entered in therefore the other disciple also, which came first to the
tomb, and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
10 So the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11 ∂ But Mary was standing without at the tomb weeping: so, as she wept, she
stooped and looked into the tomb;
12 and she beholdeth two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at
the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because
they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
14 When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and beholdeth Jesus
standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She,
supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou hast borne him
hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turneth herself, and saith unto him in
Hebrew, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith to her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended unto the Father:
but go unto my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my Father and your
Father, and my God and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene cometh and telleth the disciples, I have seen the Lord; and
[how that] he had said these things unto her.
19 ∂ When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first [day] of the week,
and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you.
20 And when he had said this, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. The
disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.
21 Jesus therefore said to them again, Peace [be] unto you: as the Father hath
sent me, even so send I you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive
ye the Holy Ghost:
23 whose soever sins ye forgive, they are forgiven unto them; whose soever
[sins] ye retain, they are retained.
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he
said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put
my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not
26 ∂ And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with
them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said,
Peace [be] unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and see my hands; and reach
[hither] thy hand, and put it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28 Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
29 Jesus saith unto him, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed
[are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.
30 Many other signs therefore did Jesus in the presence of the disciples, which
are not written in this book:
31 but these are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son
of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name.
1 ∂ After these things Jesus manifested himself again to the disciples at the
; and he manifested [himself] on this wise.
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of
, and the [sons] of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also come
with thee. They went forth, and entered into the boat; and that night they took
4 But when day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach: howbeit the disciples
knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Jesus therefore saith unto them, Children, have ye aught to eat? They answered
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye
shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the
multitude of fishes.
7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. So
when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his coat about him (for he
was naked), and cast himself into the sea.
8 But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from
the land, but about two hundred cubits off), dragging the net [full] of fishes.
9 So when they got out upon the land, they see a fire of coals there, and fish
laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now taken.
11 Simon Peter therefore went up, and drew the net to land, full of great
fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, the net
was not rent.
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come [and] break your fast. And none of the disciples
durst inquire of him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus cometh, and taketh the bread, and giveth them, and the fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after
that he was risen from the dead.
15 ∂ So when they had broken their fast, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon,
[son] of John, 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.
16 He saith to him again a second time, Simon, [son] of John, lovest thou me? He
saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him,
Tend my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, [son] of John, lovest thou me? Peter
was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said
unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus
saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself,
and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt
stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither
thou wouldest not.
19 Now this he spake, signifying by what manner of death he should glorify God.
And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20 ∂ Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which
also leaned back on his breast at the supper, and said, Lord, who is he that
21 Peter therefore seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what [is that] to
thee? follow thou me.
23 This saying therefore went forth among the brethren, that that disciple
should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, that he should not die; but, If I
will that he tarry till I come, what [is that] to thee?
24 This is the disciple which beareth witness of these things, and wrote these
things: and we know that his witness is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which if they
should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself would not
contain the books that should be written.
