JOHN VIII. do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth ; because there is no truth in him. When he

speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own ; for he is a liar, and 45 the father of it. And because I tell

And because I tell you the truth, ye be46 lieve me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin ? if I say 47 the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God,

heareth God's words; ye therefore hear them not, because -48 ye are not of God. The Jews answered, and said unto him ;

Say we not well, that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 49 Jesus answered; I have not a devil, but I honour my

Fa50 ther, and ye do dishonour me. And I seek not mine own 61 glory ; there is one that seeketh and judgeth. Verily, veri

ly, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying, he shall never 52 see death.

Then said the Jews unto him; Now we know that thou hast a devil; Abraham is dead, and the prophets,

and thou sayest ; If a man keep my saying, he shall never 53 taste of death. Art thou greater than our father Abraham,

which is dead ? and the prophets are dead; whom makest 54 thou thyself? Jesus answered; If I honour myself, my

honour is nothing. It is my Father that honoureth me, of 55 whom ye say, that he is your God, yet ye have not known

him ; but I know him. And if I should say, I know him

not, I shall be a liar like unto you. But I know him, and 56 keep his saying. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my 57 day; and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews

unto him ; Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou 58 seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them; Verily, verily, I unto you, before Abraham was, I am.

Then took they up stones to cast at him; but Jesus hid himself,

and went out of the temple. 9 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind 2 from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying ; Mas

ter, who did sin ? this man, or his parents, that he was born 3 blind? Jesus answered; Neither hath this man sinned, nor

his parents ; but that the works of God should be made 4 manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent

me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can 5 work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the 8 world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground,

and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the 7 blind man with the clay, and said unto him; Go, wash in the

pool of Siloam; (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came

answered and said ; A man that is called Jesus, made clay and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me; Go to Siloam,

and wash. And I went and washed, and I received sight. 12 Then said they unto him ; Where is he? He said ; I know not. They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was

And it was the sabbath-day when Jesus made the 15 clay, and opened his eyes. · Then again the Pharisees also

asked him, how he had received his sight. He said unto them ; He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do

Therefore said some of the Pharisees ; This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath-day.

Others said ; How can a man that is a sinner do such mira17 cles ? And there was a division among them. They say unto

the blind man again; What sayest thou of him, that he hath 18 opened thine eyes ? He said ; He is a prophet. But the

Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind,

and received his sight, until they called the parents of him 19 that had received his sight. And they asked them, saying ;

Is this your son, who ye say was born blind ? how then doth 20 he now see? His parents answered them and said ; We 21 know that this is our son, and that he was born blind ; but

by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath

opened his eyes, we know not; he is of age, ask him ; he 22 shall speak for himself. These words spake his parents, be

cause they feared the Jews. For the Jews had agreed al

ready, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he 23 should be put out of the synagogue. Therefore said his 24 parents ; He is of age, ask him. Then again called

they the man that was blind, and said unto him; Give God 25 the praise ; we know that this man is a sinner.

swered and said ; Whether he be a sinner or no, I know

not; one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26 Then said they to him again; What did he to thee? How 27 opened he thine eyes? He answered them; I have told

you already, and ye did not hear; wherefore would ye 28 hear it again ? will ye also be his disciples ? They reviled

him, and said ; Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses'

JOHN IX. 29 disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses; as for 30 this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man an

swered and said unto them ; Why, herein is a marvellous

thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath 31 opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not

sinners; but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth 32 his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not

heard, that any man opened the eyes of one that was born 33 blind ; if this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 34 They answered and said unto him ; Thou wast altogether

born in sins; and dost thou teach us ? And they cast him

out.

35

Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him ; Dost thou believe on the 36 Son of God? He answered and said ; Who is he, Lord, 37 that I might believe on him ?. And Jesus said unto him ;

Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38 And he said ; Lord, I believe ; and he worshipped him. 39 And Jesus said ; For judgment I am come into this world,

that they which see not might see, and that they which see 40 might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees

which were with him heard these words, and said unto him; 41 Are we blind also ? Jesus said unto them ; If ye were

blind, ye should have no sin; but now ye say ; We see; 10 therefore your sin remaineth. Verily, verily, I say unto you,

he that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a rob2 ber; but he that entereth in by the door, is the shepherd of 3 the sheep. To him the porter openeth ; and the sheep

hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by name, and 4 leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep,

he goeth before them; and the sheep follow him, for they 5 know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him ; for they know not the voice of stran

- This parable spake Jesus unto them; but they understood not what things they were which he spake 7 unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again ; Verily, veri8 ly, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that

ever came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep 9 did not hear them. I am the door ; by me if any man en

ter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find 10 pasture. The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill,

and to destroy ; I am come that they might have life, and

6 gers.

JOHN X. 11 that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good

shepherd ; the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own

the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the

sheep and fleeth ; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth 13 the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, and 14 careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd ; and know 15 my sheep, and am known of mine, as the Father knoweth

me, and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the 16 sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold;

them also I must bring ; and they shall hear my voice, and 17 there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. Therefore doth

my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might 18 take it again ; no man taketh it from me, but I lay it down

of myself ; I have power to lay it down, and I have power

to take it again ; this commandment have I received of my 19 Father.

There was a division therefore again among 20 the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said ; He a hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? Others said ;

These are not the words of him that hath a devil ; can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
