JOHN V. shall come forth, they that have done good unto the resur

rection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resur30 rection of damnation. I can of mine own self do nothing.

As I hear, I judge ; and my judgment is just ; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of himn wbich hath sent

If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know 33 that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye 34 sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I

receive not testimony from man; but these things I say, that 35 ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light;

and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of Jolin; for the 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, hath borne wit

ness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor 38 seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you; 39 for whom he hath sent, him

believe not.

Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and 40 they are they which testify of me; and ye will not come to 41 me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from 42 men ; but I know you, that ye have not the love of God in 43 you. I am come in

Father's

ye

receive me not ;

if another shall come in his own name, him ye will 44 receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one

of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God 45 only ? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father ;

there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; 47 for he wrote of me. But if

ye

believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

VH. After these things Jesus walked in Galilee ; for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2.3 Now the Jews' seast of tabernacles was at hand. His

brethren therefore said unto him ; Depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that 4 thou doest. For there is no man that doeth any thing

in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If 5 thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For neither 6 did his brethren believe in him.

Then Jesus said unto them ; My time is not yet come; but your time is alway 7 ready. The world cannot hate you ; but me it hateth, be

JOHN VII. 8 cause I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. Go ye up unto this feast; I go not up now unto this feast, for my

time 9 is not yet full come.

When he had said these words unto 10 them, he abode still in Galilee. But when his brethren were

gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but 11 as it were in secret. Then the Jews sought him at 12 the feast, and said ; Where is he? And there was much

murmuring among the people concerning him. For some

said ; He is a good man; others said ; Nay; but he deceiveth 13 the people. Howbeit, no man spake openly of him, for fear of the Jews.

Now, about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the 15 temple and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying; How 16 knoweth this man letters, having never learned ? Jesus an

glory ; but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same 19 is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. Did not Moses

give you the law ? and yet none of you keepeth the law; 20 why go ye about to kill me? The people answered and

said ; Thou hast a devil ; who goeth about to kill thee? 21 Jesus answered and said unto them ; I have done one work, 22 and ye all marvel because of it. Moses gave unto you

circumcision ; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers ;) 23 and ye on the sabbath-day circumcise a man.

If a man on the sabbath-day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken, are ye angry at me, because

I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath-day ? 24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous 25 judgment. Then said some of them of Jerusalem ; 26 Is not this he whom they seek to kill? but lo, he speaketh

boldly, and they say nothing unto him ; do the rulers know 24 indeed that this is the Christ? Howbeit, we know this man,

whence he is; but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth 28 whence he is. Then cried Jesus in the temple, as

he taught, saying ; Ye both know me, and ye know whence

I am; and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is 29 true, whom ye know not. I know him, for I am from him, 30 and he hath sent me. Then they sought to take him ; but

JOHN VII. When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these 32 which this man hath done? The Pharisees heard that the

people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take

Then said Jesus ; Yet a little while I am with 34 you, and then I go unto him that sent me. Ye shall seek

me, and shall not find me ; and where I am, thither ye can35 not

Then said the Jews among themselves; Whither will he go, that we shall not find him ? will he go

unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gen36 tiles ? What manner of saying is this that he said ; Ye shall

seek me, and shall not find me ; and. where I am, thither ye cannot come ?

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying ; If any man thirst, let him come unto me, 38 and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath 39 said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But

this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him

should receive; for the Holy Ghost was not yet given, be40_cause that Jesus was not yet glorified. Many of the

people therefore, when they heard this saying, said; Of a 41 truth this is the Prophet. Others said ; This is the Christ. 42 But some said; Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath

not the scripture said, that Christ cometh of the seed of Da

vid, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was ? 43 So there was a division among the people because of

And some of them would have taken him; 45 but no man laid hands on him. Then came the officers to

the chief priests and Pharisees. And they said unto them ; 46 Why have ye not brought him? The officers answered; 47 Never man spake like this man. Then answered them the 48 Pharisees; Are ye also deceived ? have any of the rulers, 49 or of the Pharisees believed on him ? but this people, who 50 knoweth not the law, believeth; they are cursed. Nicode

mus saith unto them, he that came to Jesus by night, being 51 one of them; Doth our law judge any man before it hear 52 him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said

unto him ; Art thou also of Galilee ? search and look, for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

JOHN VIII.
And every man went unto his own house.

Jesus went 2 unto the mount of Olives; and early in the morning he came

again into the temple, and all the people came unto him ; 3 and he sat down and taught them. And the scribes and

Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery, and 4 when they had set her in the midst, they say unto him ;

Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be 6 stoned; but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stoop

ed down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though 7 he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he

lifted up himself, and said unto them ; He that is without sin 8 among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he 9 stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which

heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the

woman, he said unto her; Woman, where are those thine 11 accusers ? hath no man condemned thee? She said

;

No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her; Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying; I am the light of the world ; he that followeth me shall not walk in dark13 ness, but shall have the light of life. The Pharisees there

fore said unto him ; Thou bearest record of thyself; thy 14 record is not true. Jesus answered and said unto them;

Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true; for

I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell 15 whence I come, or whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh, 16 I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true; 17 for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is

also written in your law; “ The testimony of two men 18 is true." I am one that bear witness of myself, and the 19 Father that sent me beareth witness of me. Then said they

unto him ; Where is thy Father? Jesus answered ; Ye neither know me, nor my

Father. If

ye

had known me, ye 20 should have known my Father also. These words spake he

in the treasury, as he taught in the temple ; and no man laid hands on him, for his hour was not yet come.

Then said Jesus again unto them; I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins; whither I go, ye

JOHN VIII.

Then said the Jews; Will he kill himself, 23 because he saith; Whither I go, ye cannot come? And he

said unto them; Ye are from beneath, I am from above ; ye 24 are of this world, I am not of this world. I said therefore shall die in you sins; for if

ye

believe not 25 that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Then said they unto

him; Who art thou ? And Jesus saith unto them; Even 26 the same that I said unto you from the beginning. I have

many things to say, and to judge of you ; but he that sent

me is true ; and I speak to the world those things which I 27 have heard of him. They understood not, that he spake to 28 them of the Father. Then said Jesus unto them; When ye have lift

up
the Son of

man,
then shall

ye

know that I am he; and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath 29 taught me, I speak these things; and he that sent me is with

me; the Father hath not left me alone, for I do always those things that please him.

As he spake these words, many believed on him. 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him ; If

ye 32 continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed, and

ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him; We be Abraham's seed, and were

never in bondage to any man; how sayest thou; Ye shall 34 be made free? Jesus answered them; Verily, verily, I say

unto you, whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever ; but the 36 Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make

you free, 37 ye shall be free indeed. I know that ye are Abraham's

seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no 38 place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father; and

ye
do that which

father. 39 They answered and said unto him; Abraham is our father.

Jesus saith unto them ; If ye were Abraham's children, ye 40 would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill

me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard 41 of God; this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your

father. Then said they to him ; We be not born of fornica42 tion

; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them ; If God were your Father, ye would love me; for I
