1 AFTER these there was a feast of the Jihudoyee, and Jeshu went up to Urishlem.
2 Now there was there in Urishlem a certain place of ablution, which was called in Hebrew Bethchesda, and having in it five porticoes.
3 And in these were many infirm people, blind and lame and withered, awaiting the moving of the waters.
4 For an angel at times descended to the pool and moved the waters; and he who first descended after the movement of the waters was healed of whatever disease he had.
5 But a certain man was there who for thirtyand-eight years had been in a disease.
6 Jeshu saw this (man) as he lay, and knew that for a long time he had (been thus), and said to him, Art thou willing to be healed?
7 The diseased man answered and said, Yes, my Lord; but I have no man who, when the waters are moved, shall cast me into the pool: but while I am coming, another before me descendeth.
8 Jeshu saith to him, Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And in the instant that man was healed, and, arising, he took up his bed, and walked: and that day was the shabath.
10 And the Jihudoyee said to him who had been healed, This is the shabath: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 But he answered and said to them, He who made me whole, he said to me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
12 And they said to him, What man is this who told thee to take up thy bed, and walk?
13 But he who had been healed knew not who it was; for Jeshu had retired among the great multitude which was in that place.
14 After a time Jeshu found him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, thou art healed: sin not again, lest there be to thee that which is worse than the first.
15 And that man went away, and told the Jihudoyee, that it was Jeshu who had healed him.
16 On account of this the Jihudoyee persecuted Jeshu, and sought to kill him, because these things he had done on the shabath.
17 But he, Jeshu, said to them, My Father until now worketh, I also work.
18 But on this account the more sought the Jihudoyee to kill him, not only because he had loosed the shabath, but also that of Aloha he had said that he was his Father, and had made himself equal with Aloha.
19 BUT Jeshu answered and said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you, The Son cannot do any thing from the will of himself, but that which he seeth the Father do.
20 For those which the Father doeth, these also the Son likewise doeth. For the Father loveth the Son, and every thing that he doeth he showeth him; and greater than these works he showeth him, that you may wonder.
21 For as the Father raiseth the dead, and quickeneth, so also the Son quickeneth those whom he willeth.
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but all judgment he hath given to the Son;
23 that all men should honour the Son, as they honour the Father. He who honoureth not the Son, honoureth not the Father who sent him.
24 Amen, amen, I say to you, He who heareth my word and believeth on him who sent me, hath the life that is eternal, and into condemnation he cometh not, but hath passed from death unto life.
25 Amen, amen, I say to you, That the hour cometh and also now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of Aloha; and they who hear shall live
26 For as the Father hath life in his person, so hath he given also to the Son to have life in his person,
27 and hath empowered him also to execute judgment. Because he is the Son of man,
28 marvel not at this; for the hour cometh when all they who are in the sepulchres shall hear his voice,
29 and shall come forth; they who have done good unto the resurrection of life, and they who have done evil unto the resurrection of condemnation.
30 I CANNOT of the will of myself do any thing; but as I hear I judge, and my judgment is just; for I seek not my will, but the will of Him who sent me.
31 If I should witness concerning myself, my testimony would not be (regarded as) truth:
32 there is another who witnesseth of me, and I know that true is his testimony which he hath witnessed of me.
33 You sent to Juchanon, and he witnessed of the truth.
34 But I do not from man (only) receive testimony. But these (things) speak I that you may be saved.
35 He was a lamp that burneth and shineth, and you were willing to glory for the hour in his light.
36 But I have a testimony which is greater than that of Juchanon; for the works that the Father hath given me to accomplish, these works that I do testify of me that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father who hath sent me, he testifieth of me: but his voice you have never heard, nor his appearance seen.
38 And his word abideth not in you, because in Him whom he hath sent you do not believe.
39 Investigate the scriptures; for in them you think you have the life that is eternal, and they testify of me.
40 And you will not come to me that the life that is eternal you might have.
41 Glory from the sons of men I receive not.
42 But I know you, that the love of Aloha is not in you.
43 I have come in the name of my Father, and you have not received me.
44 If another should come in his own name, him you would receive. How can you believe, who glory one from another are receiving, and the glory which is from one, Aloha, you seek not?
45 How think you that I will accuse you before the Father? There is one who accuseth you, Musha himself, in whom you hope.
46 For if in Musha you had believed, you would also have believed in me; for Musha of me hath written.
47 But if his writings you believe not, how my words will you believe?
