7:2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go
into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that
7:4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and
he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things,
shew thyself to the world.
7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your
time is alway ready.
7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I
testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
7:8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast;
for my time is not yet full come.
7:9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in
7:10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up
unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
7:11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is
7:12 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning
him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he
deceiveth the people.
7:13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
7:14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the
temple, and taught.
7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man
letters, having never learned?
7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but
his that sent me.
7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine,
whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
7:18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he
that seeketh his glory 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
keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
7:20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth
about to kill thee?
7:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work,
and ye all marvel.
7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it
is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day
circumcise a man.
7:23 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?
7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous
7:25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom
they seek to kill?
7:26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him.
Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
7:27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ
cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
7:28 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 true, whom ye know not.
7:29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
7:30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him,
because his hour was not yet come.
7:31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When
Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this
man hath done?
7:32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things
concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent
officers to take him.
7:33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with
you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
7:34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am,
thither ye cannot come.
7:35 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 Gentiles?
7:36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek
me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye
7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood
and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and
7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of
his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
7:39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe
on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;
because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying,
said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
7:41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall
Christ come out of Galilee?
7:42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed
of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
7:43 So there was a division among the people because of him.
7:44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid
hands on him.
7:45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees;
and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
7:46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
7:47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
7:48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
7:49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
7:50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night,
being one of them,)
7:51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know
what he doeth?
7:52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee?
Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
7:53 And every man went unto his own house.
8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and
all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery,
in the very act.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be
stoned: but what sayest thou?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse
him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the
ground, as though he heard them not.
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and
said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first
cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 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.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the
woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do
I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of
the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record
of thyself; thy record is not true.
8:14 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 whence I come, and whither I
8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not
alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two
men is true.
8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that
sent me beareth witness of me.
8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus
answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known
me, ye should have known my Father also.
8:20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in
the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not
8:21 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 cannot
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith,
Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from
above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your
8:25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto
them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:26 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
have heard of him.
8:27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son
of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do
nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me
alone; for I do always those things that please him.
8:30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye
continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in
bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but
the Son abideth ever.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free
8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me,
because my word hath no place in you.
8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do
that which ye have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would
do the works of Abraham.
8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the
truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We
be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would
love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came
I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye
cannot hear my word.
8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father ye will 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 the father of it.
8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth,
why do ye not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear
them not, because ye are not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well
that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father,
and ye do dishonour me.
8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh
8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he
shall never see death.
8:52 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 taste of death.
8:53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead?
and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing:
it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is
8:55 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 keep his saying.
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw
it, and was glad.
8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years
old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid
himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of
them, and so passed by.
9:1 And as [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man which was blind from [his] birth.
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin,
this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his
parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in
9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made
clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man
with the clay,
9:7 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 seeing.
9:8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him
that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9:9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but
he said, I am he.
9:10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
9:11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay,
and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of
Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
9:12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
9:14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and
opened his eyes.
9:15 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 see.
9:16 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 miracles? And there was a
division among them.
9:17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him,
that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
9:18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had
been blind, and received his sight, until they called the
parents of him that had received his sight.
9:19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say
was born blind? how then doth he now see?
9:20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is
our son, and that he was born blind:
9:21 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 shall
speak for himself.
9:22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the
Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did
confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the
9:23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
9:24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said
unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a
9:25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I
know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I
9:26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how
opened he thine eyes?
9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not
hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his
9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but
we are Moses' disciples.
9:29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow,
we know not from whence he is.
9:30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a
marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet
he hath opened mine eyes.
9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be
a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
9:32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened
the eyes of one that was born blind.
9:33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
9:34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born
in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had
found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of
9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe
9:37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is
he that talketh with thee.
9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world,
that they which see not might see; and that they which see
might be made blind.
9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these
words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no
sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
10:1 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 robber.
10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the
10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before
them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from
him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not
what things they were which he spake unto them.
10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep.
10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but
the sheep did not hear them.
10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be
saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and
to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly.
10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life
for the sheep.
10:12 But he that is an 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
10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth
not for the sheep.
10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known
10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I
lay down my life for the sheep.
10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them
also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there
shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my
life, that I might take it again.
10:18 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 Father.
10:19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for
10:20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why
hear ye him?
10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a
devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and
it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How
long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us
10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the
works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I
said unto you.
10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow
10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and
no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
10:30 I and my Father are one.
10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you
from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone
thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a
man, makest thyself God.
10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I
said, Ye are gods?
10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came,
and the scripture cannot be broken;
10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent
into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son
10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works:
that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and
I in him.
10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped
out of their hand,
10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where
John at first baptized; and there he abode.
10:41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle:
but all things that John spake of this man were true.
10:42 And many believed on him there.
