1Afterthis there was a feast of the Jews;andJesus went uptoJerusalem.2Now there isatJerusalemby the sheep market a pool,which is called in the Hebrew tongueBethesda,havingfiveporches.3Intheselay a greatmultitude of impotent folk , of blind,halt,withered, waiting for the moving of the water.4For an angel went downat a certain seasoninto the pool,andtroubled the water: whosoever thenfirstafter the troubling of the water stepped in was madewholeofwhatsoeverdisease he had .
5And a certainmanwasthere, which had an infirmitythirty and eightyears.6
When Jesussawhimlie , andknewthat he had beennow a longtime in that case, he saith unto him,Wilt thou be madewhole?7
The impotent manansweredhim,Sir, I havenoman,when the water is troubled , toputmeinto the pool:butwhileI am coming , another steppeth downbeforeme.8Jesussaith unto him,Rise , take upthybed,andwalk .9Andimmediately the man was madewhole,and took uphisbed,andwalked : andon the samedaywas the sabbath.10
The Jewsthereforesaid unto him that was cured , It is the sabbath day: it isnotlawful for thee to carry thy bed.11
He answeredthem, He that mademewhole, the samesaid unto me,Take upthybed,andwalk .12Then asked theyhim,Whatmanis that whichsaid unto thee, Take upthybed,andwalk ?
13And he that was healedwistnotwho it was : forJesus had conveyed himself away , a multitudeabeingin that place.14AfterwardJesusfindethhimin the temple,andsaid unto him,Behold, thou art madewhole:sin no more,lest a worse thingcome unto thee.15
The mandeparted , andtold the Jewsthat it wasJesus,which had madehimwhole.16Andthereforedid the JewspersecuteJesus,andsought to slayhim,because he had done these thingson the sabbath day.17ButJesusansweredthem,MyFatherworkethhitherto , and Iwork .18ThereforetheJewssought the more to killhim,becausehenotonly had broken the sabbath,butsaidalso that God was hisFather,makinghimselfequal with God.19ThenansweredJesusandsaid unto them,Verily,verily, I say unto you, The Soncandonothingofhimself,butwhat he seeth the Fatherdo : for what things soeverhedoeth , thesealsodoeth the Sonlikewise.20For the Fatherloveth the Son,andshewethhim all thingsthathimselfdoeth : and he will shewhimgreaterworksthanthese,thatye may marvel .21Foras the Father raiseth up the dead,andquickeneth them; evenso the Sonquickenethwhom he will .22FortheFatherjudgeth no man,but hath committedalljudgment unto the Son:23Thatall men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honourethnot the Sonhonourethnot the Fatherwhich hath senthim.24Verily,verily, I say unto you , He that hearethmyword,andbelieveth on him that sentme,hatheverlastinglife,andshallnotcomeintocondemnation;but is passedfromdeathuntolife.25Verily,verily, I say unto you , The hour is coming , andnowis , when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:and they that hear shall live .26Foras the Fatherhathlifeinhimself;sohath he given to the Son to havelifeinhimself;27And hath givenhimauthority to executejudgmentalso,because he is the Son of man.28Marvelnot at this:for the hour is coming , in the whichall that are in the graves shall hearhisvoice,29And shall come forth ; they that have donegood,unto the resurrection of life;and they that have doneevil,unto the resurrection of damnation.30Icanof mine own selfdonothing : as I hear , I judge : andmyjudgmentisjust;because I seeknot mine ownwill,but the will of the Father which hath sentme.31IfI bear witnessofmyself,mywitnessisnottrue.32There isanother that beareth witnessofme;and I knowthat the witnesswhich he witnessethofmeistrue.33YesentuntoJohn,and he bare witness unto the truth.34ButIreceivenottestimonyfromman:but these things I say , thatye might be saved .35Hewas a burningand a shininglight:andye were willingfor a season to rejoiceinhislight.36ButIhavegreaterwitness than that of John:for the workswhich the Father hath givenmetofinish , the sameworksthatIdo , bear witnessofme,that the Father hath sentme.37And the Fatherhimself, which hath sentme, hath borne witnessofme. Ye haveneitherheardhisvoice at any time,norseenhisshape.38And ye havenothiswordabidinginyou:forwhomhe hath sent , himyebelievenot.39Search the scriptures;forinthemyethink ye haveeternallife:andthey are they which testifyofme.40And ye willnotcometome,that ye might havelife.41I receivenothonourfrommen.42But I knowyou,that ye havenot the love of Godinyou.43I amcomeinmyFather'sname,and ye receivemenot:ifanother shall comein his ownname,him ye will receive .44Howcanyebelieve , which receivehonour one of another , andseeknot the honour that cometh fromGodonly?45DonotthinkthatI will accuseyouto the Father: there is one that accusethyou, even Moses,inwhomyetrust .46Forhad ye believedMoses, ye would have believedme:forhewroteofme.47Butif ye believenothiswritings,how shall ye believemywords?
