1: After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. edit

2: Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand. edit

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

4: For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. edit

5: For neither did his brethren believe in him. edit

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

7: The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. edit

8: Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come. edit

9: When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. edit

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

11: Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he? edit

12: And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. edit

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

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

15: And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? edit

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

17: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. edit

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. edit

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

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

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

22: Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. edit

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? edit

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

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

26: But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? edit

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

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. edit

29: But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me. edit

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

31: And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done? edit

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

33: Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. edit

34: Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. edit

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? edit

36: What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come? edit

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. edit

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

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.) edit

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

41: Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? edit

42: Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? edit

43: So there was a division among the people because of him. edit

44: And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him. edit

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

46: The officers answered, Never man spake like this man. edit

47: Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived? edit

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

49: But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. edit

50: Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) edit

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

52: They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. edit

53: And every man went unto his own house. edit
