João 7

1 AFTER these Jeshu walked in Galila; for he would not walk in Jihuda, because the Jihudoyee had sought to kill him.

2 And the feast of tabernacles of the Jihudoyee drew nigh.

3 And his brethren said to Jeshu, Remove thee hence, and go into Jihuda, that thy disciples may see the works which thou doest.

4 For there is no man who doeth any thing in concealment, and willeth himself to be in openness: if these things thou doest, show thyself to the world.

5 For neither did his brethren believe in him, in Jeshu.

6 Jeshu saith to them, My time until now cometh not, but your time is always ready.

7 The world cannot hate you: but me it hateth, because I bear witness against it that the works of it are evil.

8 Go you up to this feast: I do not ascend now to this feast, because my time is not yet complete.

9 These things said he, and remained in Galila.

10 But when his brethren had ascended to the feast, then also he ascended; not in openness, but as in concealment.

11 But the Jihudoyee sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

12 and there was great murmuring concerning him among the people; for some said that he was good, and others said, No; but he deceiveth the people.

13 But no man openly spoke of him, for fear of the Jihudoyee.

14 But when the days of the feast divided, Jeshu ascended to the temple, and taught.

15 And the Jihudoyee wondered and said, How knoweth this man the scripture, when he hath not learned?

16 Jeshu answered and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his who sent me.

17 Whosoever willeth to do his will understandeth my doctrine, if it be from Aloha, or (if) from the will of myself I speak.

18 He who from the will of his (own) mind speaketh, the glory of himself seeketh; but he who the glory of him who hath sent him seeketh, is true, and no iniquity is in him.

19 Did not Musha give you the law? But no man of you keepeth the law. Why seek you to kill me?

20 The people answered, saying, Thou hast a demon: who seeketh to kill thee?

21 Jeshu answered and said to them, One work have I performed, and all of you wondered on this account.

22 Musha gave you circumcision, not because it was from the fathers, and on the shabath you circumcise a man.

23 But if a man is circumcised on the day of shabath because the law of Musha may not be broken, why against me do you murmur, because I have altogether healed a man on the day of shabath?

24 Judge not with acceptance of persons, but righteous judgment judge you.

25 And some of Urishlem said, Is not this he whom they seek to kill?

26 and, behold, openly he discourseth, and nothing say they to him. Do the elders know that this is truly the Meshicha?

27 Yet of this we know from whence he is; but when the Meshicha cometh, no man knoweth from whence he is.

28 Jeshu lifted up his voice as he taught in the temple, and said, You know me, and from whence I am you know: and of myself I am not come; but true is he who sent me, he whom you know not.

29 But I know him who am from him; and he hath sent me.

30 And they sought to apprehend him; but no man laid hands on him, because not yet was come his hour.

31 But many of the multitude believed in him, and said, When the Meshicha is come, will he exceed the miracles which this doeth?

32 The Pharishee heard the assembly, that they said these things of him, and the chief priests sent officers to apprehend him.

33 Jeshu said, Yet a little while am I with you, and I go unto him who sent me:

34 and you will seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am you cannot come.

35 The Jihudoyee say among themselves, Whither is this about to go, that we cannot find him? To the countries of the nations is he to go, and to teach the Heathens?

36 What is this word he hath said, You shall seek me, and not find me; and where I am you cannot come?

37 BUT in the great day, which was the last of the feast, stood Jeshu and cried, and said, If (any) man thirst, let him come unto me and drink;

38 for whosoever believeth in me, as have said the scriptures, rivers of living waters shall flow from his belly.

39 But this he spake of the Spirit which they should receive who believe in him. For not yet was the Spirit given, because not yet was Jeshu glorified.

40 Now many of the assemblies who heard his words said, This is truly the Prophet.

41 Others said, This is the Meshicha. Others said, How from Galila cometh the Meshicha?

42 Hath not the scripture said, That from the seed of David, and from Beth-lechem the town of David, cometh the Meshicha?

43 And there was a division concerning him among the assemblies;

44 and there were men of them who would have apprehended him; but no man laid hands on him.

45 AND those officers came to the chief priests and the Pharishee; and the priests said to them, Why have you not brought him?

46 The officers say to them, Never so spake a son of man as speaks this man!

47 The Pharishee say to them, Are you also deceived?

48 Have any of the heads, or of the Pharishee, believed in him?

49 But if this people who know not the law (believe in him), they are accursed.

50 One of them, Nikodimos, he who came to Jeshu by night, saith to them,

51 Does our law condemn a man unless it shall hear from him first, and know what he hath done?

52 They answered and said to him, Art thou also of Galila? Investigate, and see, that the Prophet from Galila ariseth not.
