João 7

1 After these things, Iesus walked in Galile, and woulde not walke in Iudea: for the Iewes sought to kill him.

2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

4 For there is no man that doeth any thing secretely, and hee himselfe seeketh to be famous. If thou doest these things, shewe thy selfe to the worlde.

5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

7 The world can not hate you: but me it hateth, because I testifie of it, that the workes thereof are euill.

8 Go ye vp vnto this feast: I wil not go vp yet vnto this feast: for my time is not yet fulfilled.

9 These things he sayde vnto them, and abode still in Galile.

10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

11 Then the Iewes sought him at the feast, and saide, Where is hee?

12 And much murmuring was there of him among the people. Some said, He is a good man: other sayd, Nay: but he deceiueth the people.

13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.

14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

15 And the Iewes marueiled, saving, Howe knoweth this man the Scriptures, seeing that hee neuer learned!

16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

17 If any man will doe his will, he shall knowe of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speake of my selfe.

18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

19 Did not Moses give you the law, and [yet] none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

20 The people answered, and said, Thou hast a deuil: who goeth about to kill thee?

21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.

22 Moses therefore gaue vnto you circumcision, (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers) & ye on the Sabbath day circumcise a man.

23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?

26 And beholde, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing to him: doe the rulers know in deede that this is in deede that Christ?

27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

29 But I knowe him: for I am of him, and he hath sent me.

30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

31 Now many of the people beleeued in him, and said, When that Christ commeth, will he doe moe miracles then this man hath done?

32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.

33 Then saide Iesus vnto them, Yet am I a little while with you, and then goe I vnto him that sent mee.

34 Ye shall seeke me, and shall not finde me, and where I am, can ye not come.

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?

36 What saying is this that hee saide, Ye shall seeke mee, and shall not finde mee? and where I am, cannot ye come?

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.

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet [given]; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

41 Other saide, This is that Christ: and some said, But shall that Christ come out of Galile?

42 Saith not the Scripture that that Christ shall come of the seede of Dauid, and out of the towne of Beth-leem, where Dauid was?

43 So was there dissension among the people for him.

44 And some of them would haue taken him, but no man layde handes on him.

45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

46 The officers answered, Neuer man spake like this man.

47 Then answered them the Pharises, Are yee also deceiued?

48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

49 But this people, which know not the Law, are cursed.

50 Nicodemus said vnto them, ( he that came to Iesus by night, and was one of them.)

51 Doth our law judge [any] man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

52 They answered, and said vnto him, Art thou also of Galile? Searche and looke: for out of Galile ariseth no Prophet.

53 And every man went unto his own house.
