The Healing at Bethesda

1 After these things there was 1a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by 2the sheep gate a pool, which is called 3in aHebrew bBethesda, having five porticoes. 3 In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [cwaiting for the moving of the waters; 4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.] 5 A man was there who had been dill for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, "Do you wish to get well?" 7 The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when 4the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me." 8 Jesus said to him, "5Get up, pick up your pallet and walk." 9 Immediately the man became well, and picked up his pallet and began to walk. 6Now it was the Sabbath on that day.
