ST. JOHN.

Nicodemux cometh to Jesiis.

[merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors]

0 And there were set there 8ix watcrpots of stone, 'after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

7 Jesus saith unto thoin, Fill the watcrpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted 'the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servants which drew the water knew,) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, s and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

12 H After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and h his brethren, and his disciples; and they continued there not many days.

13 H "And the jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,

14 "And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers1 money, and overthrew the tables;

10 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not 'my Father's house a house of merchandise.

17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, m The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

18 T Then answered the Jews and said unto him, "What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

19 Jesus answered and said unto them, "Destroy this temple,

1 and in three days I will raise it iup.

20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

21 But he spake Pof the temple of his body.

22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, Rills disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

23 IF Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because lie knew all men,

25 And needed not that any should testify of man; for rhe knew what was in man.

CHAPTER III.

1 Christ tenchcth Xicoftemvs the necessity of rerfeneration. 14 Of faith in his death. 10 The qreat lore of God towards the world. 18 Condemnation for unbelief. 28 Tfie baptism, witness and doctrine of John concerning Christ.

THERE was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodenius.a ruler of the Jews:

2 aThe same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for bno man can do these miracles that thou doest, exceptc God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, "Except a man be horn I again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodcmiis saith unto him. How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born f

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, e Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

0 That which is horn of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born I again.

8 'The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, eHow can these things

be?

10 Jesus answered and said upto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

11 h Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and 'ye receive not our witness.

12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And k no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 IT'And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so "must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever helieveth in him should not perish, but-" have eternal life.

16 T "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever bclieveth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 PFor God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 Tf iHc that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, rthat light is come into the | world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For "every one that docth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds Bhould be I reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

22 T After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judea; and there he tarried with them, 'and baptized.

23 1 And John also was baptizing in Enon near to ■Salim, because there was much water there: * and they came, and were baptized.

24 For v John was not yet cast into prison.

25 K Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.

20 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, zto whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

27 John answered and said, aA man can I receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

28 y e yourselves bear me witness, that I said, b I am not the Christ, but 'that I am sent before him.

29 'He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: butc the friend

of the bridegroom, which fitulul

Ctll and heareth him, rejoiced greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

31 'He that cometh from above 'is above all: hhe that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: 'he that cometh from heaven is above all.

32 And k what he hath seen and heard, that he testifielh; and no man receiveth his testimony.

33 He that hath received his ] testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

34 mFor he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit "by measure unto him.

35 0 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

86 Pile that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not 6ee life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

3 He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.

4 And he must needs go through Samaria.

5 Then eomcth he to a city of Samaria, which is called Syehnr, near to the parcel of ground bthat Jacob gave to his Son Joseph.

6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with hin journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

7 There eomcth a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for cthe Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldst have asked of him, and he would have given thee d living water.

11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living watery

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

14 Bute whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him 'shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

15 sThe woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, hI perceive that thou art a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped in 'this mountain; and ye say, that in k Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour comcth, 'when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

22 Ye worship mye know not what: we know what we worship; for "salvation is of the Jews.

23 But the hour cometli, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in "spirit rand in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 iGod U a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias eomcth, which is called Christ: when he is come, rlie will tell us all things.

26 Jesus saith unto her, 'I that speak unto thee am he.

27 T And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou?' or, Why talkest thou with her?

28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

29 Come, 6ee a man, 'which' told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

31 If In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him aught to eat?

34 Jesus saith unto them, "My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then eometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; 'for they are white already to harvest.

38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

3D II And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him 2 for the 6aying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two t days.

43 IT Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

44 For b Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.

45 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him, "having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: dfor they also went unto the feast.

46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, e where he made the water wine. And there was

a certain I nobleman, whose son i and eight years.

down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.

52 Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.

54 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judea into Gali

CHAPTER V.

1 Jesus on the eightieth day cureth him that was f/feeour*) eiaht and thirty years. 10 The Jews therefore caril, and persecute him for it. 17 lie answereth for himself, and reproreth them, shewing by the testimony of his Father, 3-Iqf John, "A'iofhis works, 39 and of the Scriptures, who he is.

AFTER "this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 3 Now there is at Jerusalem bby the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty

was sick at Capernaum

47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

48 Then said Jesus unto him, 'Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.

50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.

51 And as he was now going

6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, c Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and dou the same day was the sabbath.

10 T The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is

the sabbath day: * it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, la multitude being in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: 'sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

17 If But Jesus answered them, My Father workcth hitherto, and I work.

18 Therefore the Jews h sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, kThe Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

20 For I the Father loveth the Son, and ■howeth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

I 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeueth them; "even so the Sou quickeueth whom he will.

22 For the Father judgeth no man, but "hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. "He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, p He that heareth my word, and beliovoth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;

i but is passed from death unto life.

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when r the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And »hath given him authority to execute judgment also, 1 because he is the Son of man.

28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

20 "And shall come forth; 'they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

30 y I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because z I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

31 »If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

3*2 If b There is another that bearcth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

33 Ye sent unto John,c and he bare witness unto the truth.

34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

35 He was a^buruing and da shining light: andc ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

36 H But 'I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hhath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, 'nor seen his shape.

38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

39 If kSearch the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and 1 they are they which testify of me.

40 m And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
