1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the
Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made by him; and
without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:4 In him was life; and the life was the
light of men.
1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and
the darkness comprehended it not.
1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose
name was John.
1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear
witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to
bear witness of that Light.
1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth
every man that cometh into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was
made by him, and the world knew him not.
1:11 He came unto his own, and his own
received him not.
1:12 But as many as received him, to them
gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on
1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of
the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt
among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten
of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried,
saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is
preferred before me: for he was before me.
1:16 And of his fulness have all we
received, and grace for grace.
1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but
grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the
only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath
1:19 And this is the record of John, when
the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art
1:20 And he confessed, and denied not; but
confessed, I am not the Christ.
1:21 And they asked him, What then? Art
thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he
1:22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou?
that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of
1:23 He said, I am the voice of one crying
in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the
1:24 And they which were sent were of the
1:25 And they asked him, and said unto him,
Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias,
neither that prophet?
1:26 John answered them, saying, I baptize
with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
1:27 He it is, who coming after me is
preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
1:28 These things were done in Bethabara
beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming
unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin
of the world.
1:30 This is he of whom I said, After me
cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
1:31 And I knew him not: but that he should
be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
1:32 And John bare record, saying, I saw
the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
1:33 And I knew him not: but he that sent
me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt
see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which
baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this
is the Son of God.
1:35 Again the next day after John stood,
and two of his disciples;
1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked,
he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
1:37 And the two disciples heard him speak,
and they followed Jesus.
1:38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them
following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him,
Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest
1:39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They
came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was
about the tenth hour.
1:40 One of the two which heard John speak,
and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
1:41 He first findeth his own brother
Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being
interpreted, the Christ.
1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when
Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt
be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
1:43 The day following Jesus would go forth
into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
1:44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city
of Andrew and Peter.
1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith
unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the
prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
1:46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there
any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and
1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and
saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
1:48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence
knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip
called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
1:49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him,
Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
1:50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest
thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of
God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
2:1 And the third day there was a marriage
in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his
disciples, to the marriage.
2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother
of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have
I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
2:5 His mother saith unto the servants,
Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
2:6 And there were set there six waterpots
of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing
two or three firkins apiece.
2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the
waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now,
and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted
the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the
servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called
2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the
beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then
that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus
in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples
believed on him.
2:12 After this he went down to Capernaum,
he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they
continued there not many days.
2:13 And the Jews' passover was at hand,
and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2:14 And found in the temple those that
sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
2:15 And when he had made a scourge of
small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and
the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the
2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of
2:17 And his disciples remembered that it
was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
2:18 Then answered the Jews and said unto
him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these
2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six
years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three
2:21 But he spake of the temple of his
2:22 When therefore he was risen from the
dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and
they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the
passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw
the miracles which he did.
2:24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto
them, because he knew all men,
2:25 And needed not that any should testify
of man: for he knew what was in man.
3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named
Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and
said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God:
for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with
3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God.
3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man
be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's
womb, and be born?
3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot
enter into the kingdom of God.
3:6 That which is born of the flesh is
flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye
must be born again.
3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and
thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him,
How can these things be?
3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art
thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We
speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive
not our witness.
3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and
ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly
3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven,
but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in
3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in
the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have eternal life.
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be
3:18 He that believeth on him is not
condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he
hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that
light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than
light, because their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth
the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be
3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the
light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in
3:22 After these things came Jesus and his
disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and
3:23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon
near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and
3:24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
3:25 Then there arose a question between
some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto
him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest
witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
3:27 John answered and said, A man can
receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
3:28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I
said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
3:29 He that hath the bride is the
bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and
heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this
my joy therefore is fulfilled.
3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
3:31 He that cometh from above is above
all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he
that cometh from heaven is above all.
3:32 And what he hath seen and heard, that
he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
3:33 He that hath received his testimony
hath set to his seal that God is true.
3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the
words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath
given all things into his hand.
3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath
everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see
life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
4:1 When therefore the Lord knew how the
Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than
4:2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but
4:3 He left Judaea, and departed again into
4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
4:5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria,
which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave
to his son Joseph.
4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus
therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and
it was about the sixth hour.
4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw
water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
4:8 (For his disciples were gone away unto
the city to buy meat.)
4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto
him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a
woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If
thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give
me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given
thee living water.
4:11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou
hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast
thou that living water?
4:12 Art thou greater than our father
Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his
children, and his cattle?
4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall
give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting
4:15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me
this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
4:16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy
husband, and come hither.
4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no
husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
4:18 For thou hast had five husbands; and
he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
4:19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I
perceive that thou art a prophet.
4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this
mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought
4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe
me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet
at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know
what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when
the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship
him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that
Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell
us all things.
4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak
unto thee am he.
4:27 And upon this came his disciples, and
marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest
thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and
went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all
things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
4:30 Then they went out of the city, and
came unto him.
4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed
him, saying, Master, eat.
4:32 But he said unto them, I have meat to
eat that ye know not of.
4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to
another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to
do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages,
and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he
that reapeth may rejoice together.
4:37 And herein is that saying true, One
soweth, and another reapeth.
4:38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye
bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that
city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He
told me all that ever I did.
4:40 So when the Samaritans were come unto
him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode
there two days.
4:41 And many more believed because of his
4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we
believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves,
and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
4:43 Now after two days he departed thence,
and went into Galilee.
4:44 For Jesus himself testified, that a
prophet hath no honour in his own country.
4:45 Then when he was come into Galilee,
the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at
Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
4:46 So Jesus came again into Cana of
Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain
nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus was come out
of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he
would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye
see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
4:49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come
down ere my child die.
4:50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy
son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto
him, and he went his way.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his
servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 Then enquired he of them the hour when
he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh
hour the fever left him.
4:53 So the father knew that it was at the
same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and
himself believed, and his whole house.
4:54 This is again the second miracle that
Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
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
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of
impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the
5:4 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.
5:5 And a certain man was there, which had
an infirmity thirty and eight years.
5:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that
he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou
be made whole?
5:7 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.
5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy
bed, and walk.
5:9 And immediately the man was made whole,
and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
5:10 The Jews therefore said unto him that
was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry
5:11 He answered them, He that made me
whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
5:12 Then asked they him, What man is that
which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
5:13 And he that was healed wist not who it
was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that
5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the
temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more,
lest a worse thing come unto thee.
5:15 The man departed, and told the Jews
that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
5:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute
Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the
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 unto
them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The 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.
5:20 For the 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.
5:21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead,
and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but
hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
5:23 That all men should honour the Son,
even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son
honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
5:24 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; but is passed
from death unto life.
5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto 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 the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
5:29 And shall come forth; they that have
done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done
evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
5:30 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 the Father which hath sent me.
5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my
witness is not true.
5:32 There is another that beareth witness
of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
5:33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness
unto the truth.
5:34 But I receive not testimony from man:
but these things I say, that ye might 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 witness than that
of John: 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
5:37 And the Father himself, which hath
sent me, hath borne witness of 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
might have life.
5:41 I receive not honour 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
5:44 How can ye believe, which receive
honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God
5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to
the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye
5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would
have believed me; for he wrote of me.
5:47 But if ye believe not his writings,
how shall ye believe my words?
6:1 After these things Jesus went over the
sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
6:2 And a great multitude followed him,
because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
6:3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and
there he sat with his disciples.
6:4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews,
6:5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and
saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall
we buy bread, that these may eat?
6:6 And this he said to prove him: for he
himself knew what he would do.
6:7 Philip answered him, Two hundred
pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them
may take a little.
6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon
Peter's brother, saith unto him,
6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five
barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
6:10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number
about five thousand.
6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he
had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples
to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they
6:12 When they were filled, he said unto
his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be
6:13 Therefore they gathered them together,
and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley
loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the
miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that
should come into the world.
6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that
they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed
again into a mountain himself alone.
6:16 And when even was now come, his
disciples went down unto the sea,
6:17 And entered into a ship, and went over
the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come
6:18 And the sea arose by reason of a great
wind that blew.
6:19 So when they had rowed about five and
twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and
drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
6:20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be
6:21 Then they willingly received him into
the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
6:22 The day following, when the people
which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other
boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and
that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his
disciples were gone away alone;
6:23 (Howbeit there came other boats from
Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the
Lord had given thanks:)
6:24 When the people therefore saw that
Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping,
and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
6:25 And when they had found him on the
other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou
6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles,
but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
6:27 Labour not for the meat which
perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life,
which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father
6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we
do, that we might work the works of God?
6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
6:30 They said therefore unto him, What
sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost
6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the
desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but
my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
6:33 For the bread of God is he which
cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord,
evermore give us this bread.
6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the
bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that
believeth on me shall never thirst.
6:36 But I said unto you, That ye also have
seen me, and believe not.
6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall
come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do
mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
6:39 And this is the Father's will which
hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose
nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
6:40 And this is the will of him that sent
me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have
everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:41 The Jews then murmured at him, because
he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the
son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he
saith, I came down from heaven?
6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto
them, Murmur not among yourselves.
6:44 No man can come to me, except the
Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the
6:45 It is written in the prophets, And
they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard,
and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father,
save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He
that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
6:48 I am that bread of life.
6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the
wilderness, and are dead.
6:50 This is the bread which cometh down
from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
6:51 I am the living bread which came down
from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and
the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life
of the world.
6:52 The Jews therefore strove among
themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and
drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my
blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my
blood is drink indeed.
6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh
my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
6:57 As the living Father hath sent me, and
I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
6:58 This is that bread which came down
from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that
eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
6:59 These things said he in the synagogue,
as he taught in Capernaum.
6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when
they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his
disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of
man ascend up where he was before?
6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the
flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are
spirit, and they are life.
6:64 But there are some of you that believe
not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed
not, and who should betray him.
6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto
you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my
6:66 From that time many of his disciples
went back, and walked no more with him.
6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will
ye also go away?
6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord,
to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
6:69 And we believe and are sure that thou
art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen
you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
6:71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of
Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
7:1 After these things Jesus walked in
Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to
7:2 Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him,
Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the
works that thou doest.
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
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 Galilee.
7:10 But when his brethren were gone up,
then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in
7:11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast,
and said, Where is he?
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
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 judgment.
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
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 cannot come?
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 drink.
7:38 He that believeth on me, as the
scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living
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
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
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
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
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 go.
8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no
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 yet come.
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 come.
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
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 sins.
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
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
8:30 As he spake these words, many believed
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which
believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples
8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free.
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 indeed.
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
8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then
said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father,
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 and judgeth.
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
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 your God:
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 him.
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
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 synagogue.
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 sinner.
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 see.
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 disciples?
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
9:34 They answered and said unto him, Thou
wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast
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 God?
9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord,
that I might believe on him?
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
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
