John 7

7:2  Now the feast of the Jews, the feast of tabernacles, was at hand1.

7:3  His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea1, that thy disciples also may behold thy works which thou doest2.

7:4  For no man doeth anything in secret, and himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou doest these things, manifest thyself to the world1.

7:5  For even his brethren did not believe on him1.

7:6  Jesus therefore saith unto them, My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready.

7:7  The world cannot hate you1; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that its works are evil2.

7:8  Go ye up unto the feast: I go not up unto this feast; because my time is not yet fulfilled1.

7:10  But when his brethren were gone up unto the feast, then went he also up, not publicly, but as it were in secret1.

7:11  The Jews therefore sought him at the feast1, and said, Where is he?

7:12  And there was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him1: some said, He is a good man; others said, Not so, but he leadeth the multitude astray.

7:13  Yet no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews1.

7:14  But when it was now the midst of the feast1 Jesus went up into the temple, and taught2.

7:15  The Jews therefore marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned1?

7:16  Jesus therefore answered them and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me.

7:17  If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching1, whether it is of God, or [whether] I speak from myself.

7:18  He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory1: but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

7:19  Did not Moses give you the law, and [yet] none of you doeth the law? Why seek ye to kill me1?

7:20  The multitude answered, Thou hast a demon: who seeketh to kill thee1?

7:21  Jesus answered and said unto them, I did one work, and ye all marvel because thereof1.

7:22  Moses hath given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers); and on the sabbath ye circumcise a man1.

7:23  If a man receiveth circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken1; are ye wroth with me, because I made a man every whit whole on the sabbath2?

7:24  Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment1.

7:25  Some therefore of them of Jerusalem said, Is not this he whom they seek to kill1?

7:26  And lo, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing unto him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is the Christ1?

7:27  Howbeit we know this man whence he is1: but when the Christ cometh, no one knoweth whence he is2.

7:28  Jesus therefore cried in the temple, teaching and saying, Ye both know me, and know whence I am; and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not1.

7:29  I know him; because I am from him, and he sent me1.

7:30  They sought therefore to take him1: and no man laid his hand on him, because his hour was not yet come2.

7:31  But of the multitude many believed on him; and they said, When the Christ shall come, will he do more signs than those which this man hath done1?

7:32  The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him; and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to take him2.

7:33  Jesus therefore said, Yet a little while am I with you, and I go unto him that sent me1.

7:34  Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me1: and where I am, ye cannot come.

7:35  The Jews therefore said among themselves, Whither will this man go that we shall not find him1? will he go unto the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks2?

7:37  Now on the last day1, the great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink2.

7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said1, from within him shall flow rivers of living water2.

7:39  But this spake he of the Spirit1, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet [given]; because Jesus was not yet glorified.

7:40  [Some] of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is of a truth the prophet1.

7:41  Others said, This is the Christ1. But some said, What, doth the Christ come out of Galilee2?

7:42  Hath not the scripture said that the Christ cometh of the seed of David1, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was2?

7:44  And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him1.

7:45  The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees1; and they said unto them, Why did ye not bring him2?

7:46  The officers answered, Never man so spake1.

7:47  The Pharisees therefore answered them, Are ye also led astray1?

7:50  Nicodemus saith unto them (he that came to him before, being one of them),

7:51  Doth our law judge a man, except it first hear from himself and know what he doeth1?

7:52  They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee1? Search, and see that out of Galilee ariseth no prophet2.

7:53  [And they went every man unto his own house:
