1After these thingsJesuswalkedinGalilee:for he wouldnotwalkinJewry,because the Jewssought to killhim.2Now the Jews'feast of tabernacleswas at hand.3Hisbrethrenthereforesaiduntohim,Departhence,andgointoJudaea,thatthydisciplesalso may see the worksthatthoudoest .
4For there is no man that doeth any thinginsecret,and he himselfseeketh to be known openly . If thou do these things,shewthyself to the world.5Forneitherdidhisbrethrenbelieveinhim.6ThenJesussaid unto them,Mytimeis not yetcome : butyourtimeisalwayready.7The worldcannothateyou;butme it hateth , becauseItestifyofit,that the worksthereofareevil.8Goyeupuntothisfeast:Igonotupyetuntothisfeast;formytimeis not yet full come .9When he had said these words unto them, he abode still inGalilee.10Butwhenhisbrethren were gone up , thenwenthealsoupunto the feast,notopenly,but as it wereinsecret.11Then the Jewssoughthimat the feast,andsaid , Whereishe?12And there wasmuchmurmuringamong the peopleconcerninghim: for somesaid , He is a good man:otherssaid , Nay;but he deceiveth the people.13Howbeit no manspakeopenlyofhimforfear of the Jews.14Nowabout the midst of the feastJesus went upinto the temple,andtaught .
15And the Jewsmarvelled , saying , Howknoweth this manletters,ahavingneverlearned ?
16Jesusansweredthem,andsaid , Mydoctrineisnotmine,but his that sentme.17If any manwilldohiswill, he shall knowof the doctrine,whether it beofGod,or whether Ispeakofmyself.18He that speakethofhimselfseeketh his ownglory:but he that seeketh his glory that senthim, the sameistrue,andnounrighteousnessisinhim.19DidnotMosesgiveyou the law,and yet noneofyoukeepeth the law?Why go ye about to killme?20
The peopleansweredandsaid , Thou hast a devil:who goeth about to killthee?21Jesusansweredandsaid unto them,I have doneonework,andyeallmarvel .22Mosesthereforegave unto youcircumcision; (not because it isofMoses,butof the fathers;) andyeon the sabbath daycircumcise a man.23If a manon the sabbath dayreceivecircumcision,thatb the law of Mosesshouldnot be broken ; are ye angry at me,because I have made a man every whitwholeon the sabbath day?24Judgenot according to the appearance,butjudgerighteousjudgment.25Thensaidsomeof them of Jerusalem,Isnotthis he, whom they seek to kill ?
26But,lo, he speakethboldly,and they saynothing unto him.Do the rulersknowindeedthatthisis the veryChrist?27Howbeit we know this manwhence he is : butwhenChristcometh , no manknowethwhence he is .
28ThencriedJesusin the temple as he taught , saying , Ye both know me , and ye knowwhence I am : and I amnotcomeofmyself,but he that sentmeistrue,whomyeknownot.29ButIknowhim:for I amfromhim, and he hath sentme.30Then they sought to takehim:but no manlaidhandsonhim,becausehishourwas not yetcome .
31Andmanyof the peoplebelievedonhim,andsaid , WhenChristcometh , will he domoremiracles than thesewhichthis man hath done ?
The Phariseesheard that the peoplemurmured such thingsconcerninghim;and the Phariseesand the chief priestssentofficerstotakehim.33ThensaidJesus unto them,Yet a littlewhile am Iwithyou,and then I gounto him that sentme.34Ye shall seekme,andshallnotfind me: andwhereIam , thither yecannotcome .35Thensaid the Jewsamongthemselves,Whitherwillhego , thatweshallnotfindhim?will he gounto the dispersed among the Gentiles,candteach the Gentiles?36What manner of sayingisthisthat he said , Ye shall seekme,andshallnotfind me:andwhereIam , thither yecannotcome ?37In the lastday, that great day of the feast,Jesusstoodandcried , saying , If any manthirst , let him comeuntome,anddrink .38He that believethonme,as the scripture hath said , out ofhisbelly shall flowrivers of livingwater.39
(But this spake heof the Spirit,which they that believeonhimshouldreceive : for the HolyGhostwas not yet given; because that Jesuswas not yetglorified .)
40Manyof the peopletherefore, when they heard this saying,said , Of a truththisis the Prophet.41Otherssaid , Thisis the Christ.Butsomesaid , ShallChristcome out ofGalilee?42
Hath not the scripturesaid , ThatChristcomethof the seed of David,and out of the town of Bethlehem,whereDavidwas ?
43So there was a divisionamong the peoplebecause of him.44Andsomeofthemwould have takenhim;but no manlaidhandsonhim.45Thencame the officersto the chief priestsandPharisees;andtheysaid unto them,Why have yenotbroughthim?46
The officersanswered , Nevermanspakelikethisman.47Thenansweredthem the Pharisees,Areyealsodeceived ?
Have anyof the rulersorof the Phariseesbelievedonhim?49Butthispeoplewhoknowethnot the lawarecursed.50Nicodemussaithuntothem, (he that came to Jesusdbynight,beingoneof them,)
51Dothourlawjudge any man,beforeithearhim,andknowwhat he doeth ?
They answeredandsaid unto him,ArtthoualsoofGalilee?Search , andlook:for out ofGalileearisethnoprophet.53And every manwentunto his ownhouse.
