John 7

NKJV 1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought 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. NKJV 2 Now the Jews' Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. NIV 2 But when the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near, NKJV 3 His brothers therefore said to Him, "Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples also may see the works that 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. NKJV 4 For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. 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." NKJV 5 For even His brothers did not believe in Him. NIV 5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him. NKJV 6 Then Jesus said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. NIV 6 Therefore Jesus told them, "The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right. NKJV 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil. NIV 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil. NKJV 8 You go up to this feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, for 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." NKJV 9 When He had said these things to them, He remained in Galilee. NIV 9 Having said this, he stayed in Galilee. NKJV 10 But when His brothers had gone up, then He also went up to the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. NIV 10 However, after his brothers had left for the Feast, he went also, not publicly, but in secret. NKJV 11 Then the Jews sought Him at the feast, and said, "Where is He?" NIV 11 Now at the Feast the Jews were watching for him and asking, "Where is that man?" NKJV 12 And there was much complaining among the people concerning Him. Some said, "He is good"; others said, "No, on the contrary, He deceives the people." 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." NKJV 13 However, no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Jews. NIV 13 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews. NKJV 14 Now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught. NIV 14 Not until halfway through the Feast did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. NKJV 15 And the Jews marveled, saying, "How does this Man know letters, having never studied?" NIV 15 The Jews were amazed and asked, "How did this man get such learning without having studied?" NKJV 16 Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine 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. NKJV 17 If anyone wants to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. 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. NKJV 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is 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. NKJV 19 Did not Moses give you the law, yet none of you keeps 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?" NKJV 20 The people answered and said, "You have a demon. Who is seeking to kill You?" NIV 20 "You are demon-possessed," the crowd answered. "Who is trying to kill you?" NKJV 21 Jesus answered and said to them, "I did one work, and you all marvel. NIV 21 Jesus said to them, "I did one miracle, and you are all astonished. NKJV 22 Moses therefore gave you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath. 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. NKJV 23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely 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? NKJV 24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment." NIV 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." NKJV 25 Now some of them from Jerusalem said, "Is this not He whom they seek 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? NKJV 26 But look! He speaks boldly, and they say nothing to Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is truly the Christ? 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 ? NKJV 27 However, we know where this Man is from; but when the Christ comes, 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." NKJV 28 Then Jesus cried out, as He taught in the temple, saying, "You both know Me, and you 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, NKJV 29 But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me." NIV 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me." NKJV 30 Therefore they sought to take Him; but no one laid a 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. NKJV 31 And many of the people believed in Him, and said, "When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?" 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?" NKJV 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things concerning Him, and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take 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. NKJV 33 Then Jesus said to them, "I shall be with you a little while longer, and 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. NKJV 34 You will seek Me and 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." NKJV 35 Then the Jews said among themselves, "Where does He intend to go that we shall not find Him? Does He intend to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks? 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? NKJV 36 What is this thing that He said, 'You will seek Me and 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'?" NKJV 37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, 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. NKJV 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart 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." NKJV 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy 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. NKJV 40 Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet." NIV 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." NKJV 41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Will the Christ come out of Galilee? NIV 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee? NKJV 42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, 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?" NKJV 43 So there was a division among the people because of Him. NIV 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. NKJV 44 Now some of them wanted to take Him, but no one laid hands on Him. NIV 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. NKJV 45 Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why have you not brought 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?" NKJV 46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this Man!" NIV 46 "No one ever spoke the way this man does," the guards declared. NKJV 47 Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are you also deceived? NIV 47 "You mean he has deceived you also?" the Pharisees retorted. NKJV 48 Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees believed in Him? NIV 48 "Has any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? NKJV 49 But this crowd that 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." NKJV 50 Nicodemus (he who came to Jesus by night, 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, NKJV 51 "Does our law judge a man before it hears him and knows what he is doing?" NIV 51 "Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is doing?" NKJV 52 They answered and said to him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and look, for no prophet has arisen 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." NKJV 53 And everyone went to his own house. NIV 53 Then each went to his own home.
