John 5:1-15

ESV 1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. MSG 1 Soon another Feast came around and Jesus was back in Jerusalem. ESV 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic called Bethesda, which has five roofed colonnades. MSG 2 Near the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem there was a pool, in Hebrew called Bethesda, with five alcoves. ESV 3 In these lay a multitude of invalids--blind, lame, and paralyzed. MSG 3 Hundreds of sick people - blind, crippled, paralyzed - were in these alcoves. ESV 5 One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. MSG 5 One man had been an invalid there for thirty-eight years. ESV 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be healed?" MSG 6 When Jesus saw him stretched out by the pool and knew how long he had been there, he said, "Do you want to get well?" ESV 7 The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me." MSG 7 The sick man said, "Sir, when the water is stirred, I don't have anybody to put me in the pool. By the time I get there, somebody else is already in." ESV 8 Jesus said to him, "Get up, take up your bed, and walk." MSG 8 Jesus said, "Get up, take your bedroll, start walking." ESV 9 And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked. Now that day was the Sabbath. MSG 9 The man was healed on the spot. He picked up his bedroll and walked off. ESV 10 So the Jews said to the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed." MSG 10 The Jews stopped the healed man and said, "It's the Sabbath. You can't carry your bedroll around. It's against the rules." ESV 11 But he answered them, "The man who healed me, that man said to me, 'Take up your bed, and walk.'" MSG 11 But he told them, "The man who made me well told me to. He said, 'Take your bedroll and start walking.'" ESV 12 They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, 'Take up your bed and walk'?" MSG 12 They asked, "Who gave you the order to take it up and start walking?" ESV 13 Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. MSG 13 But the healed man didn't know, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd. ESV 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you." MSG 14 A little later Jesus found him in the Temple and said, "You look wonderful! You're well! Don't return to a sinning life or something worse might happen." ESV 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. MSG 15 The man went back and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
