John 5


5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews: and Jesus went up
 to Jerusalem.
5:2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep [market] a pool,
 which is called in the Hebrew tongue, Bethesda, having five
 porches.
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent persons, of
 blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
5:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool,
 and agitated the water: whoever then first after the stirring
 of the water stepped in, was cured of whatever disease he had.
5:5 And a certain man was there, who had an infirmity thirty and
 eight years.
5:6 When Jesus saw him lying, and knew that he had been now a
 long time [in that case], he saith to him, Wilt thou be healed?
5:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the
 water is agitated, to put me into the pool: but while I am
 coming, another steppeth down before me.
5:8 Jesus saith to him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
5:9 And immediately the man was healed, and took up his bed, and
 walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
5:10 The Jews therefore said to him that was cured, it is the
 sabbath; it is not lawful for thee to carry [thy] bed.
5:11 He answered them, He that healed me, the same said to me,
 Take up thy bed, and walk.
5:12 Then they asked him, What man is that who said to thee,
 Take up thy bed, and walk?
5:13 And he that was healed knew not who it was: for Jesus had
 conveyed himself away, a multitude being in [that] place.
5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him,
 Behold, thou art cured: sin no more, lest a worse thing come to
 thee.
5:15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who
 had healed him.
5:16 And therefore the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to slay
 him, because he had done these things on the sabbath.
5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I
 work.
5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he
 not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his
 Father, making himself equal with God.
5:19 Then answered Jesus, and said to them, Verily, verily, I
 say to you, The Son can do nothing by himself, but what he
 seeth the Father do: for whatever things he doeth, these also
 doeth the Son likewise.
5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things
 that himself doeth: and he will show him greater works than
 these, that ye may marvel.
5:21 For as the Father raiseth the dead, and reviveth [them];
 even so the Son reviveth whom he will.
5:22 For the Father judgeth no man; but hath committed all
 judgment to the Son:
5:23 That all [men] should honor the Son, even as they honor the
 Father. He that honoreth not the Son, honoreth not the Father
 who hath sent him.
5:24 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that heareth my word, and
 believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall
 not come into condemnation; but hath passed from death to life.
5:25 Verily, verily, I say to you, The hour is coming, and now
 is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and
 they that hear shall live.
5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to
 the Son to have life in himself;
5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also,
 because he is the Son of man.
5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all
 that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good to the
 resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, to the
 resurrection of damnation.
5:30 I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
 judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will
 of the Father who hath sent me.
5:31 If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true.
5:32 There is another that testifieth concerning me, and I know
 that the testimony which he beareth concerning me is true.
5:33 Ye sent to John, and he testified to the truth.
5:34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I
 say, that ye may be saved.
5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing
 for a season to rejoice in his light.
5:36 But I have greater testimony than [that] of John: for the
 works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works
 that I do, bear testimony concerning me, that the Father hath
 sent me.
5:37 And the Father himself who hath sent me, hath borne
 testimony concerning me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any
 time, nor seen his shape.
5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath
 sent, him ye believe not.
5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal
 life: and they are they which testify of me.
5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
5:41 I receive not honor from men.
5:42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
5:43 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.
5:44 How can ye believe, who receive honor one from another, and
 seek not the honor that [cometh] from God only?
5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is
 [one] that accuseth you, [even] Moses, in whom ye trust.
5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for
 he wrote concerning me.
5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my
 words?
