CHAPTERS: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21]

JN 7:1  After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.

JN 7:2  Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

JN 7:3  And his brethren said to him: Pass from hence, and go into Judea; that thy disciples also may see thy works which thou dost.

JN 7:4  For there is no man that doth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, manifest thyself to the world.

JN 7:5  For neither did his brethren believe in him.

JN 7:6  Then Jesus said to them: My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready.

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

JN 7:8  Go you up to this festival day, but I go not up to this festival day: because my time is not accomplished.

JN 7:9  When he had said these things, he himself stayed in Galilee.

JN 7:10  But after his brethren were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but, as it were, in secret.

JN 7:11  The Jews therefore sought him on the festival day, and said: Where is he?

JN 7:12  And there was much murmuring among the multitude concerning him. For some said: He is a good man. And others said: No, but he seduceth the people.

JN 7:13  Yet no man spoke openly of him, for fear of the Jews.

JN 7:14  Now about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

JN 7:15  And the Jews wondered, saying: How doth this man know letters, having never learned?

JN 7:16  Jesus answered them, and said: My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

JN 7:17  If any man do the will of him; he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

JN 7:18  He that speaketh of himself, seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, he is true, and there is no injustice in him.

JN 7:19  Did Moses not give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?

JN 7:20  Why seek you to kill me? The multitude answered, and said: Thou hast a devil; who seeketh to kill thee?

JN 7:21  Jesus answered, and said to them: One work I have done; and you all wonder:

JN 7:22  Therefore, Moses gave you circumcision (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and on the sabbath day you circumcise a man.

JN 7:23  If a man receive circumcision on the sabbath day, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are you angry at me because I have healed the whole man on the sabbath day?

JN 7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge just judgment.

JN 7:25  Some therefore of Jerusalem said: Is not this he whom they seek to kill?

JN 7:26  And behold, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers known for a truth, that this is the Christ?

JN 7:27  But we know this man, whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

JN 7:28  Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching, and saying: You both know me, and you know whence I am: and I am not come of myself; but he that sent me, is true, whom you know not.

JN 7:29  I know him, because I am from him, and he hath sent me.

JN 7:30  They sought therefore to apprehend him: and no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

JN 7:31  But of the people many believed in him, and said: When the Christ cometh, shall he do more miracles, than these which this man doth?

JN 7:32  The Pharisees heard the people murmuring these things concerning him: and the rulers and Pharisees sent ministers to apprehend him.

JN 7:33  Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while I am with you: and then I go to him that sent me.

JN 7:34  You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither you cannot come.

JN 7:35  The Jews therefore said 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?

JN 7:36  What is this saying that he hath said: You shall seek me, and shall not find me; and where I am, you cannot come?

JN 7:37  And on the last, and great day of the festivity, Jesus stood and cried, saying: If any man thirst, let him come to me, and drink.

JN 7:38  He that believeth in me, as the scripture saith, Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

JN 7:39  Now this he said of the Spirit which they should receive, who believed in him: for as yet the Spirit was not given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

JN 7:40  Of that multitude therefore, when they had heard these words of his, some said: This is the prophet indeed.

JN 7:41  Others said: This is the Christ. But some said: Doth the Christ come out of Galilee?

JN 7:42  Doth not the scripture say: That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem the town where David was?

JN 7:43  So there arose a dissension among the people because of him.

JN 7:44  And some of them would have apprehended him: but no man laid hands on him.

JN 7:45  The ministers therefore came to the chief priests and the Pharisees. And they said to them: Why have you not brought him?

JN 7:46  The ministers answered: Never did man speak like this man.

JN 7:47  The Pharisees therefore answered them: Are you also seduced?

JN 7:48  Hath any one of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees?

JN 7:49  But this multitude, that knoweth not the law, are accursed.

JN 7:50  Nicodemus said to them, (he that came to him by night, who was one of them:)

JN 7:51  Doth our law judge any man, unless it first hear him, and know what he doth?

JN 7:52  They answered, and said to him: Art thou also a Galilean? Search the scriptures, and see, that out of Galilee a prophet riseth not.

JN 7:53  And every man returned to his own house.
