Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 After these things, Yeshua revealed himself again to the talmidim at the sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself this way. 1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way:
2 Shim`on Kefa, T'oma called Didymus, Natan'el of Kanah in the Galil, and the sons of Zavdai, and two others of his talmidim were together. 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together.
3 Shim`on Kefa said to them, "I'm going fishing." They told him, "We are also coming with you." They immediately went forth, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. 3 "I'm going out to fish," Simon Peter told them, and they said, "We'll go with you." So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
4 But when day was now breaking, Yeshua stood on the beach, yet the talmidim didn't know that it was Yeshua. 4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
5 Yeshua therefore said to them, "Children, have you anything to eat?" They answered him, "No." 5 He called out to them, "Friends, haven't you any fish?" "No," they answered.
6 He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fish. 6 He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
7 That talmid therefore whom Yeshua loved said to Kefa, "It's the Lord!" So when Shim`on Kefa heard that it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around him (for he was naked), and threw himself into the sea. 7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, "It is the Lord," he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water.
8 But the other talmidim came in the little boat (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits away), dragging the net full of fish. 8 The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.
9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. 9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.
10 Yeshua said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have just caught." 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you have just caught."
11 Shim`on Kefa went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fish, one hundred fifty-three; and even though there were so many, the net wasn't torn. 11 Simon Peter climbed aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.
12 Yeshua said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." None of the talmidim dared inquire of him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord. 12 Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord.
13 Then Yeshua came and took the bread, gave it to them, and the fish likewise. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.
14 This is now the third time that Yeshua was revealed to his talmidim, after he had risen from the dead. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
15 So when they had eaten their breakfast, Yeshua said to Shim`on Kefa, "Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." 15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."
16 He said to him again a second time, "Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." 16 Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."
17 He said to him the third time, "Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you have affection for me?" Kefa was grieved because he asked him the third time, "Do you have affection for me?" He said to him, "Lord, you know everything. You know that I have affection for you." Yeshua said to him, "Feed my sheep. 17 The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.
18 Most assuredly I tell you, when you were young, you dressed yourself, and walked where you wanted to. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you, and carry you where you don't want to go." 18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."
19 Now he said this, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. When he had said this, he said to him, "Follow me." 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, "Follow me!"
20 Then Kefa, turning around, saw a talmid following. This was the talmid whom Yeshua sincerely loved, the one who had also leaned on Yeshua' breast at the supper and asked, "Lord, who is going to betray You?" 20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?")
21 Kefa seeing him, said to Yeshua, "Lord, what about this man?" 21 When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?"
22 Yeshua said to him, "If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you? You follow me." 22 Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me."
23 This saying therefore went forth among the brothers, that this talmid wouldn't die. Yet Yeshua didn't say to him that he wouldn't die, but, "If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you?" 23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?"
24 This is the talmid who testifies about these things, and wrote these things. We know that his witness is true. 24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
25 There are also many other things which Yeshua did, which if they would all be written, I suppose that even the world itself wouldn't contain the books that would be written. 25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
