John 7

WEB 1 After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee, for he would not 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. WEB 2 Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand. NIV 2 But when the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near, WEB 3 His brothers therefore said to him, "Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see your works which you do. 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. WEB 4 For no man does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, reveal 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." WEB 5 For even his brothers didn't believe in him. NIV 5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him. WEB 6 Jesus therefore 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. WEB 7 The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about 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. WEB 8 You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled." 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." WEB 9 Having said these things to them, he stayed in Galilee. NIV 9 Having said this, he stayed in Galilee. WEB 10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, 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. WEB 11 The Jews therefore 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?" WEB 12 There was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others said, "Not so, but he leads the multitude 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." WEB 13 Yet 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. WEB 14 But when it was now the midst 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. WEB 15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?" NIV 15 The Jews were amazed and asked, "How did this man get such learning without having studied?" WEB 16 Jesus therefore answered them, "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. WEB 17 If anyone desires to do his will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is from God, or if 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. WEB 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him, the same 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. WEB 19 Didn't Moses give you the law, and 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?" WEB 20 The multitude 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?" WEB 21 Jesus answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it. NIV 21 Jesus said to them, "I did one miracle, and you are all astonished. WEB 22 Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy. 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. WEB 23 If a boy receives circumcision on the Sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me, because I made a man every bit whole 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? WEB 24 Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment." NIV 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." WEB 25 Some therefore of them of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this 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? WEB 26 Behold, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know 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 ? WEB 27 However we know where this man comes from, but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from." NIV 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from." WEB 28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, "You both know me, and know where I am from. I have not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you don't 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, WEB 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." WEB 30 They sought therefore to take him. 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. WEB 31 But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more signs than those 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?" WEB 32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest 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. WEB 33 Then Jesus said, "Yet a little while, am I 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. WEB 34 You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come." NIV 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come." WEB 35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we won't find him? Will he 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? WEB 36 What is this word that he said, 'You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't 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'?" WEB 37 Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "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. WEB 38 He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him 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." WEB 39 But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. For the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus wasn't 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. WEB 40 Many of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet." NIV 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." WEB 41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "What, does the Christ come out of Galilee? NIV 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee? WEB 42 Hasn't the Scripture said that the Christ comes of the seed 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?" WEB 43 So there arose a division in the multitude because of him. NIV 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. WEB 44 Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him. NIV 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. WEB 45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why didn't you 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?" WEB 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. WEB 47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, "Are you also led astray? NIV 47 "You mean he has deceived you also?" the Pharisees retorted. WEB 48 Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees? NIV 48 "Has any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? WEB 49 But this multitude that doesn't know the law is accursed." NIV 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law--there is a curse on them." WEB 50 Nicodemus (he who came to him 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, WEB 51 "Does our law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?" NIV 51 "Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is doing?" WEB 52 They answered him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search, and see that 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." WEB 53 Everyone went to his own house, NIV 53 Then each went to his own home.
