1 After athis there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem bby the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, dand knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, cWilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, eRise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on fthe same day was the sabbath.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: git is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. 11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. 12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? 13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. 14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: hsin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. 16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
17 But Jesus answered them, iMy Father worketh hitherto, and I work. 18 Therefore the Jews jsought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, kmaking himself equal with God. 19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, lThe Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For mthe Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; neven so the Son quickeneth whom he will. 22 For the Father judgeth no man, but ohath committed all judgment unto the Son: 23 That all men should phonour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; qbut is passed from death unto life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when rthe dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath slife in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, tbecause he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 vAnd shall come forth; uthey that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because wI seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. 31 xIf I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye sent unto John, yand he bare witness unto the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 35 He was a burning and za shining light: and aye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
36 But cI have greater witness than that of John: for bthe works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, ehath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, dnor seen his shape. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
39 gSearch the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and fthey are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 hI receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not ithe honour that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: jthere is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: kfor he wrote of me. 47 But if lye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
