John 21

WEB 1 After these things, Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself this way. NIV 1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way: WEB 2 Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. NIV 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. WEB 3 Simon Peter 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. NIV 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. WEB 4 But when day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. NIV 4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. WEB 5 Jesus therefore said to them, "Children, have you anything to eat?" They answered him, "No." NIV 5 He called out to them, "Friends, haven't you any fish?" "No," they answered. WEB 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. NIV 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. WEB 7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It's the Lord!" So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around him (for he was naked), and threw himself into the sea. NIV 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. WEB 8 But the other disciples 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. NIV 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. WEB 9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. NIV 9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. WEB 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have just caught." NIV 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you have just caught." WEB 11 Simon Peter 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. NIV 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. WEB 12 Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." None of the disciples dared inquire of him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord. NIV 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. WEB 13 Then Jesus came and took the bread, gave it to them, and the fish likewise. NIV 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. WEB 14 This is now the third time that Jesus was revealed to his disciples, after he had risen from the dead. NIV 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead. WEB 15 So when they had eaten their breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, 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." NIV 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." WEB 16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, 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." NIV 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." WEB 17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you have affection for me?" Peter 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." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. NIV 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. WEB 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." NIV 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." WEB 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." NIV 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, "Follow me!" WEB 20 Then Peter, turning around, saw a disciple following. This was the disciple whom Jesus sincerely loved, the one who had also leaned on Jesus' breast at the supper and asked, "Lord, who is going to betray You?" NIV 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?") WEB 21 Peter seeing him, said to Jesus, "Lord, and what will this man do?" NIV 21 When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?" WEB 22 Jesus said to him, "If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you? You follow me." NIV 22 Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me." WEB 23 This saying therefore went forth among the brothers, that this disciple wouldn't die. Yet Jesus 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?" NIV 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?" WEB 24 This is the disciple who testifies about these things, and wrote these things. We know that his witness is true. NIV 24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. WEB 25 There are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they would all be written, I suppose that even the world itself wouldn't contain the books that would be written. NIV 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.
