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 sheep.
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
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
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 the sheep.
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 of mine.
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 these sayings.
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
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 plainly.
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 me:
10:28 And I give unto them eternal life;
and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of
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
10:30 I and my Father are one.
10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to
10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works
have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone
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 of God?
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
10:42 And many believed on him there.
11:1 Now a certain man was sick, named
Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2 (It was that Mary which anointed the
Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother
Lazarus was sick.)
11:3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him,
saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This
sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of
God might be glorified thereby.
11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her
sister, and Lazarus.
11:6 When he had heard therefore that he
was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
11:7 Then after that saith he to his
disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.
11:8 His disciples say unto him, Master,
the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve
hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not,
because he seeth the light of this world.
11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he
stumbleth, because there is no light in him.
11:11 These things said he: and after that
he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may
awake him out of sleep.
11:12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he
sleep, he shall do well.
11:13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but
they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
11:14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I
was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go
11:16 Then said Thomas, which is called
Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die
11:17 Then when Jesus came, he found that
he had lain in the grave four days already.
11:18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem,
about fifteen furlongs off:
11:19 And many of the Jews came to Martha
and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard
that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the
11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if
thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever
thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
11:23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother
shall rise again.
11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he
shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the
resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were
dead, yet shall he live:
11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in
me shall never die. Believest thou this?
11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I
believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come
into the world.
11:28 And when she had so said, she went
her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is
come, and calleth for thee.
11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose
quickly, and came unto him.
11:30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the
town, but was in that place where Martha met him.
11:31 The Jews then which were with her in
the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up
hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave
to weep there.
11:32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus
was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if
thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping,
and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the
spirit, and was troubled.
11:34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
11:35 Jesus wept.
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he
11:37 And some of them said, Could not this
man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this
man should not have died?
11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in
himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this
time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto
thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of
11:41 Then they took away the stone from
the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and
said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
11:42 And I knew that thou hearest me
always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they
may believe that thou hast sent me.
11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried
with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
11:44 And he that was dead came forth,
bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about
with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
11:45 Then many of the Jews which came to
Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
11:46 But some of them went their ways to
the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.
11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and
the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many
11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men
will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our
place and nation.
11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas,
being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for
us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation
11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but
being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for
11:52 And not for that nation only, but
that also he should gather together in one the children of God that
were scattered abroad.
11:53 Then from that day forth they took
counsel together for to put him to death.
11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly
among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness,
into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at
hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the
passover, to purify themselves.
11:56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake
among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he
will not come to the feast?
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the
Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he
were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
12:1 Then Jesus six days before the
passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom
he raised from the dead.
12:2 There they made him a supper; and
Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with
12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of
spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his
feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the
12:4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas
Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for
three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
12:6 This he said, not that he cared for
the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what
was put therein.
12:7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone:
against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
12:8 For the poor always ye have with you;
but me ye have not always.
12:9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew
that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that
they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
12:10 But the chief priests consulted that
they might put Lazarus also to death;
12:11 Because that by reason of him many of
the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
12:12 On the next day much people that were
come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went
forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel
that cometh in the name of the Lord.
12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young
ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold,
thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
12:16 These things understood not his
disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered
they that these things were written of him, and that they had done
these things unto him.
12:17 The people therefore that was with
him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the
dead, bare record.
12:18 For this cause the people also met
him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among
themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is
gone after him.
12:20 And there were certain Greeks among
them that came up to worship at the feast:
12:21 The same came therefore to Philip,
which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we
would see Jesus.
12:22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and
again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The
hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone:
but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose
it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life
12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow
me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve
me, him will my Father honour.
12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what
shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I
unto this hour.
12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came
there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will
glorify it again.
12:29 The people therefore, that stood by,
and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to
12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice
came not because of me, but for your sakes.
12:31 Now is the judgment of this world:
now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the
earth, will draw all men unto me.
12:33 This he said, signifying what death
he should die.
12:34 The people answered him, We have
heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest
thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a
little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest
darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not
whither he goeth.
12:36 While ye have light, believe in the
light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus,
and departed, and did hide himself from them.
12:37 But though he had done so many
miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet
might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our
report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe,
because that Esaias said again,
12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and
hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor
understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
12:41 These things said Esaias, when he saw
his glory, and spake of him.
12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers
also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not
confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
12:43 For they loved the praise of men more
than the praise of God.
12:44 Jesus cried and said, He that
believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
12:45 And he that seeth me seeth him that
12:46 I am come a light into the world,
that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
12:47 And if any man hear my words, and
believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but
to save the world.
12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth
not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken,
the same shall judge him in the last day.
12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but
the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say,
and what I should speak.
12:50 And I know that his commandment is
life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father
said unto me, so I speak.
13:1 Now before the feast of the passover,
when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of
this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the
world, he loved them unto the end.
13:2 And supper being ended, the devil
having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to
13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had
given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and
went to God;
13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside
his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
13:5 After that he poureth water into a
bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with
the towel wherewith he was girded.
13:6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and
Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What
I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never
wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no
part with me.
13:9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not
my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed
needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are
clean, but not all.
13:11 For he knew who should betray him;
therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
13:12 So after he had washed their feet,
and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye
say well; for so I am.
13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have
washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
13:15 For I have given you an example, that
ye should do as I have done to you.
13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The
servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater
than he that sent him.
13:17 If ye know these things, happy are ye
if ye do them.
13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I
have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth
bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that,
when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He
that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth
me receiveth him that sent me.
13:21 When Jesus had thus said, he was
troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
13:22 Then the disciples looked one on
another, doubting of whom he spake.
13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom
one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to
him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith
unto him, Lord, who is it?
13:26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I
shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the
sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into
him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what
intent he spake this unto him.
13:29 For some of them thought, because
Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that
we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something
to the poor.
13:30 He then having received the sop went
immediately out: and it was night.
13:31 Therefore, when he was gone out,
Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in
13:32 If God be glorified in him, God shall
also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
13:33 Little children, yet a little while I
am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I
go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
13:34 A new commandment I give unto you,
That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one
13:35 By this shall all men know that ye
are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
13:36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord,
whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not
follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
13:37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot
I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay
down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock
shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye
believe in God, believe also in me.
14:2 In my Father's house are many
mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a
place for you.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for
you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am,
there ye may be also.
14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way
14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know
not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have
known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen
14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us
the Father, and it sufficeth us.
14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so
long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that
hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us
14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the
Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak
not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He
that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and
greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my
name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name,
I will do it.
14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he
shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the
world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I
will come to you.
14:19 Yet a little while, and the world
seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am
in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
14:21 He that hath my commandments, and
keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be
loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to
14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot,
Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto
14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If
a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and
we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my
sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's
which sent me.
14:25 These things have I spoken unto you,
being yet present with you.
14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy
Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all
things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have
said unto you.
14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I
give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your
heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I
go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice,
because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
14:29 And now I have told you before it
come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with
you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
14:31 But that the world may know that I
love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.
Arise, let us go hence.
15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is
15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not
fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth
it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
15:3 Now ye are clean through the word
which I have spoken unto you.
15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the
branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no
more can ye, except ye abide in me.
15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He
that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast
forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them
into the fire, and they are burned.
15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide
in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye
bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I
loved you: continue ye in my love.
15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall
abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and
abide in his love.
15:11 These things have I spoken unto you,
that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love
one another, as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do
whatsoever I command you.
15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants;
for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you
friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made
known unto you.
15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have
chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit,
and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the
Father in my name, he may give it you.
15:17 These things I command you, that ye
love one another.
15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that
it hated me before it hated you.
15:19 If ye were of the world, the world
would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have
chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
15:20 Remember the word that I said unto
you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted
me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they
will keep yours also.
15:21 But all these things will they do
unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto
them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father
15:24 If I had not done among them the
works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have
they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the
word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me
without a cause.
15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom
I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which
proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
15:27 And ye also shall bear witness,
because ye have been with me from the beginning.
16:1 These things have I spoken unto you,
that ye should not be offended.
16:2 They shall put you out of the
synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will
think that he doeth God service.
16:3 And these things will they do unto
you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
16:4 But these things have I told you, that
when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And
these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with
16:5 But now I go my way to him that sent
me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
16:6 But because I have said these things
unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It
is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the
Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him
16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove
the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on
16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my
Father, and ye see me no more;
16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of
this world is judged.
16:12 I have yet many things to say unto
you, but ye cannot bear them now.
16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth,
is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of
himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he
will shew you things to come.
16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall
receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
16:15 All things that the Father hath are
mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it
16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see
me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to
16:17 Then said some of his disciples among
themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye
shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and,
Because I go to the Father?
16:18 They said therefore, What is this
that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
16:19 Now Jesus knew that they were
desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among
yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me:
and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That
ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be
sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath
sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of
the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is
born into the world.
16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but
I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no
man taketh from you.
16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me
nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the
Father in my name, he will give it you.
16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my
name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
16:25 These things have I spoken unto you
in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you
in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name:
and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
16:27 For the Father himself loveth you,
because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am
come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
16:29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now
speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all
things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we
believe that thou camest forth from God.
16:31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now
16:32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now
come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall
leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
16:33 These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have
tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up
his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy
Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
17:2 As thou hast given him power over all
flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given
17:3 And this is life eternal, that they
might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast
17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I
have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me
with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the
17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the
men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou
gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
17:7 Now they have known that all things
whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
17:8 For I have given unto them the words
which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known
surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou
didst send me.
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the
world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are
mine; and I am glorified in them.
17:11 And now I am no more in the world,
but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep
through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be
one, as we are.
17:12 While I was with them in the world, I
kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none
of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be
17:13 And now come I to thee; and these
things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in
17:14 I have given them thy word; and the
world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am
not of the world.
17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take
them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the
17:16 They are not of the world, even as I
am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy
word is truth.
17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world,
even so have I also sent them into the world.
17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify
myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but
for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
17:21 That they all may be one; as thou,
Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us:
that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I
have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they
may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast
sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom
thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my
glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the
foundation of the world.
17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath
not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou
hast sent me.
17:26 And I have declared unto them thy
name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me
may be in them, and I in them.
18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he
went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a
garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
18:2 And Judas also, which betrayed him,
knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his
18:3 Judas then, having received a band of
men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither
with lanterns and torches and weapons.
18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things
that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek
18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him,
stood with them.
18:6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek
ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I
am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled,
which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew
it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear.
The servant's name was Malchus.
18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up
thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me,
shall I not drink it?
18:12 Then the band and the captain and
officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for
he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave
counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and
so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest,
and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door without.
Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high
priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
18:17 Then saith the damsel that kept the
door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He
saith, I am not.
18:18 And the servants and officers stood
there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed
themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of
his disciples, and of his doctrine.
18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to
the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither
the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
18:21 Why askest thou me? ask them which
heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of
the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand,
saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken
evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto
Caiaphas the high priest.
18:25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed
himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his
disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
18:26 One of the servants of the high
priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I
see thee in the garden with him?
18:27 Peter then denied again: and
immediately the cock crew.
18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas
unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went
not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they
might eat the passover.
18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and
said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
18:30 They answered and said unto him, If
he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto
18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye
him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto
him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be
fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.
18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment
hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of
18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this
thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine
own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what
hast thou done?
18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of
this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants
fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my
kingdom not from hence.
18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art
thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To
this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I
should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth
heareth my voice.
18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?
And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith
unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
18:39 But ye have a custom, that I should
release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release
unto you the King of the Jews?
18:40 Then cried they all again, saying,
Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
19:1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and
19:2 And the soldiers platted a crown of
thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
19:3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and
they smote him with their hands.
19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and
saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know
that I find no fault in him.
19:5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the
crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them,
Behold the man!
19:6 When the chief priests therefore and
officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no
fault in him.
19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law,
and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of
19:8 When Pilate therefore heard that
saying, he was the more afraid;
19:9 And went again into the judgment hall,
and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest
thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee,
and have power to release thee?
19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no
power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:
therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to
release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go,
thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh
19:13 When Pilate therefore heard that
saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a
place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
19:14 And it was the preparation of the
passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold
19:15 But they cried out, Away with him,
away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify
your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
19:16 Then delivered he him therefore unto
them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
19:17 And he bearing his cross went forth
into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the
19:18 Where they crucified him, and two
other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it
on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE
19:20 This title then read many of the
Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city:
and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
19:21 Then said the chief priests of the
Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I
am King of the Jews.
19:22 Pilate answered, What I have written
I have written.
19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had
crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every
soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam,
woven from the top throughout.
19:24 They said therefore among themselves,
Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the
scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment
among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things
therefore the soldiers did.
19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus
his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and
19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother,
and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold
thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own
19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all
things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled,
saith, I thirst.
19:29 Now there was set a vessel full of
vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon
hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the
vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up
19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was
the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on
the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought
Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken
19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the
legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw
that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear
pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and
his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might
19:36 For these things were done, that the
scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
19:37 And again another scripture saith,
They shall look on him whom they pierced.
19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea,
being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought
Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him
leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
19:39 And there came also Nicodemus, which
at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh
and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
19:40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and
wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews
is to bury.
19:41 Now in the place where he was
crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre,
wherein was never man yet laid.
19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore
because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at
20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary
Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth
the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
20:2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon
Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto
them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know
not where they have laid him.
20:3 Peter therefore went forth, and that
other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
20:4 So they ran both together: and the
other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
20:5 And he stooping down, and looking in,
saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
20:6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him,
and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
20:7 And the napkin, that was about his
head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a
place by itself.
20:8 Then went in also that other disciple,
which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
20:9 For as yet they knew not the
scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
20:10 Then the disciples went away again
unto their own home.
20:11 But Mary stood without at the
sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into
20:12 And seeth two angels in white
sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the
body of Jesus had lain.
20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why
weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my
LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.
20:14 And when she had thus said, she
turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was
20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why
weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the
gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me
where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She
turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not;
for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say
unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God,
and your God.
20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the
disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these
things unto her.
20:19 Then the same day at evening, being
the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the
disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in
the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed
unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when
they saw the LORD.
20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace
be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
20:22 And when he had said this, he
breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are
remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are
20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called
Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
20:25 The other disciples therefore said
unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall
see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the
print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not
20:26 And after eight days again his
disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the
doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither
thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust
it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto
him, My LORD and my God.
20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because
thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not
seen, and yet have believed.
20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus
in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing
ye might have life through his name.
21:1 After these things Jesus shewed
himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this
wise shewed he himself.
21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and
Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons
of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a
fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and
entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
21:4 But when the morning was now come,
Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was
21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children,
have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on
the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore,
and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus
loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard
that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was
naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
21:8 And the other disciples came in a
little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two
hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
21:9 As soon then as they were come to
land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and
21:10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the
fish which ye have now caught.
21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net
to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for
all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
21:12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it
was the Lord.
21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread,
and giveth them, and fish likewise.
21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus
shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the
21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith
to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith
unto him, Feed my lambs.
21:16 He saith to him again the second
time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea,
Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said
unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord,
thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith
unto him, Feed my sheep.
21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When
thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou

disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast
at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21:21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus,
Lord, and what shall this man do?
21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that
he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
21:23 Then went this saying abroad among
the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not
unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come,
what is that to thee?
21:24 This is the disciple which testifieth
of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his
testimony is true.
21:25 And there are also many other things
which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I
suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that
should be written. Amen.
