John 7

NAS 1 After these things Jesus was walking in Galilee, for He was unwilling to walk in Judea because the Jews were seeking to kill Him. NIV 1 After this, Jesus went around in Galilee, purposely staying away from Judea because the Jews there were waiting to take his life. NAS 2 Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was near. NIV 2 But when the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near, NAS 3 Therefore His brothers said to Him, "Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see Your works which You are doing. NIV 3 Jesus' brothers said to him, "You ought to leave here and go to Judea, so that your disciples may see the miracles you do. NAS 4 "For no one does anything in secret when he himself seeks to be known publicly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world." NIV 4 No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world." NAS 5 For not even His brothers were believing in Him. NIV 5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him. NAS 6 So Jesus said to them, "My time is not yet here, but your time is always opportune. NIV 6 Therefore Jesus told them, "The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right. NAS 7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil. NIV 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil. NAS 8 "Go up to the feast yourselves; I do not go up to this feast because My time has not yet fully come." NIV 8 You go to the Feast. I am not yet going up to this Feast, because for me the right time has not yet come." NAS 9 Having said these things to them, He stayed in Galilee. NIV 9 Having said this, he stayed in Galilee. NAS 10 But when His brothers had gone up to the feast, then He Himself also went up, not publicly, but as if, in secret. NIV 10 However, after his brothers had left for the Feast, he went also, not publicly, but in secret. NAS 11 So the Jews were seeking Him at the feast and were saying, "Where is He?" NIV 11 Now at the Feast the Jews were watching for him and asking, "Where is that man?" NAS 12 There was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him; some were saying, "He is a good man "; others were saying, "No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray." NIV 12 Among the crowds there was widespread whispering about him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others replied, "No, he deceives the people." NAS 13 Yet no one was speaking openly of Him for fear of the Jews. NIV 13 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews. NAS 14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and began to teach. NIV 14 Not until halfway through the Feast did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. NAS 15 The Jews then were astonished, saying, "How has this man become learned, having never been educated?" NIV 15 The Jews were amazed and asked, "How did this man get such learning without having studied?" NAS 16 So Jesus answered them and said, "My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. NIV 16 Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. NAS 17 "If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. NIV 17 If anyone chooses to do God's will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. NAS 18 "He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. NIV 18 He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. NAS 19 "Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law? Why do you seek to kill Me?" NIV 19 Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?" NAS 20 The crowd answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill You?" NIV 20 "You are demon-possessed," the crowd answered. "Who is trying to kill you?" NAS 21 Jesus answered them, "I did one deed, and you all marvel. NIV 21 Jesus said to them, "I did one miracle, and you are all astonished. NAS 22 "For this reason Moses has given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but from the fathers ), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man. NIV 22 Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a child on the Sabbath. NAS 23 "If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath? NIV 23 Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath? NAS 24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment." NIV 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." NAS 25 So some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, "Is this not the man whom they are seeking to kill? NIV 25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, "Isn't this the man they are trying to kill? NAS 26 "Look, He is speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to Him. The rulers do not really know that this is the Christ, do they? NIV 26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Christ ? NAS 27 "However, we know where this man is from; but whenever the Christ may come, no one knows where He is from." NIV 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from." NAS 28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, "You both know Me and know where I am from; and I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know. NIV 28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, "Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, NAS 29 "I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me." NIV 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me." NAS 30 So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come. NIV 30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come. NAS 31 But many of the crowd believed in Him; and they were saying, "When the Christ comes, He will not perform more signs than those which this man has, will He?" NIV 31 Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs than this man?" NAS 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to seize Him. NIV 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him. NAS 33 Therefore Jesus said, "For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me. NIV 33 Jesus said, "I am with you for only a short time, and then I go to the one who sent me. NAS 34 "You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come." NIV 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come." NAS 35 The Jews then said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we will not find Him? He is not intending to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks, is He? NIV 35 The Jews said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? NAS 36 "What is this statement that He said, 'You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come '?" NIV 36 What did he mean when he said, 'You will look for me, but you will not find me,' and 'Where I am, you cannot come'?" NAS 37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. NIV 37 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. NAS 38 "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.' " NIV 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." NAS 39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. NIV 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. NAS 40 Some of the people therefore, when they heard these words, were saying, "This certainly is the Prophet." NIV 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." NAS 41 Others were saying, "This is the Christ." Still others were saying, "Surely the Christ is not going to come from Galilee, is He? NIV 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee? NAS 42 "Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?" NIV 42 Does not the Scripture say that the Christ will come from David's family and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?" NAS 43 So a division occurred in the crowd because of Him. NIV 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. NAS 44 Some of them wanted to seize Him, but no one laid hands on Him. NIV 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. NAS 45 The officers then came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?" NIV 45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why didn't you bring him in?" NAS 46 The officers answered, "Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks." NIV 46 "No one ever spoke the way this man does," the guards declared. NAS 47 The Pharisees then answered them, "You have not also been led astray, have you? NIV 47 "You mean he has deceived you also?" the Pharisees retorted. NAS 48 "No one of the rulers or Pharisees has believed in Him, has he? NIV 48 "Has any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? NAS 49 "But this crowd which does not know the Law is accursed." NIV 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law--there is a curse on them." NAS 50 Nicodemus (he who came to Him before, being one of them) said to them, NIV 50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, NAS 51 "Our Law does not judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he is doing, does it?" NIV 51 "Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is doing?" NAS 52 They answered him, "You are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee." NIV 52 They replied, "Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee." NAS 53 [Everyone went to his home. NIV 53 Then each went to his own home.
