King James Bible : John : Chapter 5


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