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, was nigh.
6:5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he says unto Philip, Where 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, says unto him,
6:9 There is a lad here, which has 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 would.
6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
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 to them.
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 says unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
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 you here?
6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, You seek me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
6:27 labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him has God the Father sealed.
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 you believe on him whom he has sent.
6:30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest you then, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work?
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 gives you the true bread from heaven.
6:33For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven, and gives 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 comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
6:36 But I said unto you, That you also have seen me, and believe not.
6:37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes 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.
6:39And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
6:40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes 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 says, I came down from heaven?
6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
6:46Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.
6:47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
6:48 I am that bread of life.
6:49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
6:50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
6:51I 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 you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
6:54Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has 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 eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
6:57As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats 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 eats 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, Does this offend you?
6:62What and if you 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 Father.
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 you also go away?
6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life.
6:69 And we believe and are sure that you are 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 spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
John Chapter 7
7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
7:2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see the works that you doest.
7:4 For there is no man that does any thing in secret, and he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show thyself to the world.
7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
7:8Go you 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 secret.
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 deceives the people.
7:13 However no man spoke 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 knows this man letters, having never learned?
7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
7:18He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
7:19Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why go you about to kill me?
7:20 The people answered and said, You have a devil: who goes about to kill you?
7:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and you all marvel.
7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and you on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
7:23If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
7:24Judge 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 speaks boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
7:27 However we know this man whence he is: but when Christ comes, no man knows whence he is.
7:28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, You both know me, and you know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom you know not.
7:29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he has 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 comes, will he do more miracles than these which this man has 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 You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither you 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, You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither you 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 believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
7:39 (But this spoke he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit 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 Has not the scripture said, That Christ comes 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 you not brought him?
7:46 The officers answered, Never man spoke like this man.
7:47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are you also deceived?
7:48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
7:49 But this people who knows not the law are cursed.
7:50 Nicodemus says unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
7:51 Does our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he does?
7:52 They answered and said unto him, Are you also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee arises no prophet.
7:53 And every man went unto his own house.
John Chapter 8
8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those your accusers? has no man condemned you?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, You bearest record of thyself; your 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 you cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
8:15 You judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.
8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, You neither know me, nor my Father: if you had known me, you should have known my Father also.
8:20 These words spoke 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 you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, you cannot come.
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he says, Whither I go, you cannot come.
8:23 And he said unto them, You are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:24I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sins.
8:25 Then said they unto him, Who are thou? And Jesus says unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
8:27 They understood not that he spoke to them of the Father.
8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
8:30 As he spoke these words, many believed on him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
8:32And you 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 you, You shall be made free?
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
8:35And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abides ever.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.
8:38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus says unto them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.
8:40But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
8:41 You do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word.
8:44You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
8:45 And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not.
8:46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God hears God's words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan, and have a devil?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honor my Father, and you do dishonor me.
8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeks and judges.
8:51Verily, 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 you have a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest you thyself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom you say, that he is your God:
8:55 Yet you 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, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you 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.
John Chapter 9
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 has 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 comes, 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 neighbors 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 your eyes opened?
9:11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
9:12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
9:14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
9:15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
9:16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keeps 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 you of him, that he has opened your 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 you say was born blind? how then does 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 sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
9:22 These words spoke 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 you? how opened he your eyes?
9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: wherefore would you hear it again? will you also be his disciples?
9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
9:29 We know that God spoke 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 you know not from whence he is, and yet he has opened mine eyes.
9:31 Now we know that God hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears.
9:32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
9:33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
9:34 They answered and said unto him, You was altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Do you 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, You have both seen him, and it is he that talketh with you.
9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
9:41 Jesus said unto them, If you were blind, you should have no sin: but now you say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
John Chapter 10
10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that enters 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 enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3 To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
10:4 And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
10:5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
10:6 This parable spoke Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spoke unto them.
10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10:10The thief comes 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.
10:11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.
10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catches 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.
10:15As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
10:16And 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 does my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
10:18 No man takes 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 has a devil, and is mad; why hear you him?
10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long do you make us to doubt? If you be the Christ, tell us plainly.
10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and you believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
10:26 But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
10:27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
10:28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
10:29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
10:30I and my Father are one.
10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me?
10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone you not; but for blasphemy; and because that you, being a man, makest thyself God.
10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, You 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 you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme; 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 you believe not me, believe the works: that you 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 spoke of this man were true.
10:42 And many believed on him there.
John Chapter 11
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 you 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 says he to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again.
11:8His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and goest you 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 sees the light of this world.
11:10But 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 says unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; 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 However Jesus spoke 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 you may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
11:16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
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 house.
11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother had not died.
11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever you will ask of God, God will give it you.
11:23 Jesus says unto her, Your brother shall rise again.
11:24 Martha says 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 believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
11:26 And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?
11:27 She says unto him, Yes, Lord: I believe that you are 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 calls for you.
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 goes 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 you had 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 you laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
11:35 Jesus wept.
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
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 comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
11:39 Jesus said, Take you away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, says unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he has been dead four days.
11:40 Jesus says unto her, Said I not unto you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God?
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 you that you have heard me.
11:42And I knew that you hear me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that you have 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 says 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 does many miracles.
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, You know nothing at all,
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
11:51 And this spoke he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
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 there 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 spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think you, 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 show it, that they might take him.
John Chapter 12
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 him.
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 odor of the ointment.
12:4 Then says 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 has she kept this.
12:8For the poor always you have with you; but me you 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 comes 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, your King comes, 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 you how you 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 comes and tells 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.
12:24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
12:25 He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
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 honor.
12:27Now 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 your 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 spoke to him.
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 abides for ever: and how sayest you, 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 you have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walks in darkness knows not whither he goes.
12:36While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things spoke 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 Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said again,
12:40 He has 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 Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spoke 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 believes on me, believes not on me, but on him that sent me.
12:45 And he that sees me sees him that sent me.
12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on me should not abide in darkness.
12:47And 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 receives not my words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
12:49For 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.
John Chapter 13
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 betray him;
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 comes he to Simon Peter: and Peter says unto him, Lord, do you wash my feet?
13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do you knows not now; but you shall know hereafter.
13:8 Peter says unto him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash you not, you have no part with me.
13:9 Simon Peter says unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
13:10 Jesus says to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and you are clean, but not all.
13:11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, You 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 you what I have done to you?
13:13 You call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am.
13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet.
13:15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
13:16Verily, 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 you know these things, happy are you if you 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 eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.
13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, you may believe that I am he.
13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receives whomsoever I send receives me; and he that receives me receives 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 spoke.
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 spoke.
13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast says 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 you do, do quickly.
13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spoke 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 him.
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. You shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, you cannot come; so now I say to you.
13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
13:35By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.
13:36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, you can not follow me now; but you shall follow me afterwards.
13:37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake.
13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt you lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto you, The cock shall not crow, till you have denied me thrice.
John Chapter 14
14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: you 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 you may be also.
14:4 And whither I go you know, and the way you know.
14:5 Thomas says unto him, Lord, we know not whither you goest; and how can we know the way?
14:6 Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
14:7 If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him.
14:8 Philip says unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
14:9 Jesus says unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father?
14:10Believest you 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 dwells in me, he does the works.
14:11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
14:12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes 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 you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14:14 If you shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
14:15 If you 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;
14:17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.
14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
14:19 Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also.
14:20 At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
14:21He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
14:22 Judas says unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that you will manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
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.
14:24He that loves me not keeps not my sayings: and the word which you 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 Spirit, 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.
14:27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
14:28 You have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
14:29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you might believe.
14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world comes, and has 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.
John Chapter 15
15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
15:2 Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
15:3 Now you 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 you, except you abide in me.
15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you 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 you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you.
15:8Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples.
15:9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: continue you in my love.
15:10 If you keep my commandments, you 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 you love one another, as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.
15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows 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.
15:16You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.
15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates 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 cloke for their sin.
15:23 He that hates me hates my Father also.
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.
15:25But this comes 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 proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me:
15:27 And you also shall bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.
