5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
market a pool
5:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
The Sinai MS. omits "waiting for the moving of the water." and all of John 5:4 .
5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
5:34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
Cf. John 8:14 . In John 5:31 our Lord, defending His Messianic claims before Jews who denied those claims, accepts the biblical rule of evidence, which required "two witnesses" ; John 8:17 ; Numbers 35:30 ; Deuteronomy 17:6 . A paraphrase of verse John 5:31 would be: "If I bear witness of myself ye will say my witness is not true." Cf. John 8:14 .
5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
