The Gospel According to Saint John
N the beginning was the Word, and
the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not
any thing made that was made.
1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of
1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness
comprehended it not.
1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was
1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the
Light, that all men through him might believe.
1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.
1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every
man that cometh into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him,
and the world knew him not.
1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him
1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on
1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of
the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of
the Father,) full of grace and truth.
1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This
was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred
before me: for he was before me.
1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace
1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace
and truth came by Jesus Christ.
1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten
Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared
1:19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent
priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art
1:20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I
am not the Christ.
1:21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And
he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered,
1:22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may
give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of
1:23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the
1:24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
1:25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why
baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias,
neither that prophet?
1:26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water:
but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
1:27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before
me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
1:28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan,
where John was baptizing.
1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and
saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the
1:30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man
which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
1:31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made
manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with
1:32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit
descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
1:33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize
with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the
Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which
baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of
1:35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his
1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith,
Behold the Lamb of God!
1:37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they
1:38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and
saith unto them, What seek ye?
They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted,
Master,) where dwellest thou?
1:39 He saith unto them, Come and
see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with
him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
1:40 One of the two which heard John speak, and
followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
1:41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith
unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being
interpreted, the Christ.
1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld
him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of
Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by
interpretation, A stone.
1:43 The day following Jesus would go forth into
Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
1:44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and
1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We
have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did
write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
1:46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good
thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and
1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of
him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom
is no guile!
1:48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Before
that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I
1:49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou
art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
1:50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig
tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than
1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall
see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending
upon the Son of man.

ND the third day there was a
marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was
2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the
2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith
unto him, They have no wine.
2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman,
what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet
2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he
saith unto you, do it.
2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone,
after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two
or three firkins apiece.
2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill
the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the
2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw
out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And
they bare it.
2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water
that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the
servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast
called the bridegroom,
2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth
set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that
which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until
2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of
Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples
believed on him.
2:12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his
mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued
there not many days.
2:13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went
up to Jerusalem,
2:14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and
sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
2:15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he
drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen;
and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the
Christ Driving the Moneylenders from the Temple

2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house
an house of merchandise.
2:17 And his disciples remembered that it was written,
The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
2:18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign
shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise
2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this
temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
2:22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his
disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they
believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in
the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw
the miracles which he did.
2:24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because
he knew all men,
2:25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for
he knew what was in man.

HERE was a man of the Pharisees,
named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him,
Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no
man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with
3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born
again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when
he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb,
and be born?
3:5 Jesus answered, Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and
of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of
3:6 That which is born of the
flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is
3:7 Marvel not that I said unto
thee, Ye must be born again.
3:8 The wind bloweth where it
listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell
whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is
born of the Spirit.
3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these
3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these
3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen;
and ye receive not our witness.
3:12 If I have told you earthly
things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you
of heavenly things?
3:13 And no man hath ascended up
to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the
Son of man which is in heaven.
3:14 And as Moses lifted up the
serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be
3:15 That whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have eternal life.
3:16 For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into
the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him
might be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him is
not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten
Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness
rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil
hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds
should be reproved.
3:21 But he that doeth truth
cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that
they are wrought in God.
3:22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples
into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and
3:23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim,
because there was much water there: and they came, and were
3:24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
3:25 Then there arose a question between some of
John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi,
he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest
witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to
3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing,
except it be given him from heaven.
3:28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am
not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
3:29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the
friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him,
rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my
joy therefore is fulfilled.
3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is
of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that
cometh from heaven is above all.
3:32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he
testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his
seal that God is true.
3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of
God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto
3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all
things into his hand.
3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the
wrath of God abideth on him.

HEN therefore the Lord knew how
the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more
disciples than John,
4:2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his
4:3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
4:5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called
Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son
4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being
wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well:
and it was about the sixth hour.
4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus
saith unto her, Give me to
4:8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to
4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it
that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of
Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that
saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of
him, and he would have given thee living water.
4:11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to
draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou
that living water?
4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave
us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and
4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst
4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the
water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water
that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing
up into everlasting life.
4:15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water,
that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
4:16 Jesus saith unto her, Go,
call thy husband, and come hither.
4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband.
Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said,
I have no husband:
4:18 For thou hast had five
husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that
saidst thou truly.
4:19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou
art a prophet.
4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye
say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to
4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman,
believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this
mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
4:22 Ye worship ye know not what:
we know what we worship: for salvation is of the
4:23 But the hour cometh, and now
is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in
spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship
4:24 God is a Spirit: and
they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in
4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias
cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell
us all things.
4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that
speak unto thee am he.
4:27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled
that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest
thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way
into the city, and saith to the men,
4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever
I did: is not this the Christ?
4:30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto
4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying,
4:32 But he said unto them, I have
meat to eat that ye know not of.
4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath
any man brought him ought to eat?
4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My
meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his
4:35 Say not ye, There are yet
four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto
you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest.
4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth
wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that
soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
4:37 And herein is that saying
true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
4:38 I sent you to reap that
whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are
entered into their labours.
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on
him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me
all that ever I did.
4:40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they
besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there
4:41 And many more believed because of his own word;
4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not
because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves,
and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the
4:43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went
4:44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no
honour in his own country.
4:45 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans
received him, having seen all the things that he did at
Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
4:46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he
made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose
son was sick at Capernaum.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea
into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would
come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of
4:48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not
4:49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my
4:50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy
way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that
Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him,
and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to
amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour
the fever left him.
4:53 So the father knew that it was at the same
hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and
himself believed, and his whole house.
4:54 This is again the second miracle that
Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
[ John: Chapter 4:
| Verses: 54 | Words: 1094 ]
FTER this there was a feast of
the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
5:2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market
a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of
blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
5:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the
pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the
troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever
disease he had.
5:5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity
thirty and eight years.
5:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been
now a long time in that case, he saith unto him,
Wilt thou be made whole?
5:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man,
when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while
I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise,
take up thy bed, and walk.
5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up
his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
5:10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It
is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry
5:11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same
said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
5:12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said
unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
5:13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for
Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in
5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said
unto him, Behold, thou art made whole:
sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
5:15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was
Jesus, which had made him whole.
5:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and
sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the
5:17 But Jesus answered them, My
Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him,
because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that
God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son
can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for
what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son
5:20 For the Father loveth the
Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will
shew him greater works than these, that ye may
5:21 For as the Father raiseth up
the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son
quickeneth whom he will.
5:22 For the Father judgeth no
man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
5:23 That all men should
honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that
honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent
5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent
me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into
condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear
the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall
5:26 For as the Father hath life
in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in
5:27 And hath given him authority
to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of
5:28 Marvel not at this: for the
hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall
hear his voice,
5:29 And shall come forth; they
that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they
that have done evil, unto the resurrection of
5:30 I can of mine own self do
nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I
seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath
5:31 If I bear witness of myself,
my witness is not true.
5:32 There is another that beareth
witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth
of me is true.
5:33 Ye sent unto John, and he
bare witness unto the truth.
5:34 But I receive not testimony
from man: but these things I say, that ye might be
5:35 He was a burning and a
shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in
5:36 But I have greater witness
than that of John: for the works which the Father hath
given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of
me, that the Father hath sent me.
5:37 And the Father himself, which
hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard
his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
5:38 And ye have not his word
abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe
5:39 Search the scriptures; for in
them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which
testify of me.
5:40 And ye will not come to me,
that ye might have life.
5:41 I receive not honour from
5:42 But I know you, that ye have
not the love of God in you.
5:43 I am come in my Father's
name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own
name, him ye will receive.
5:44 How can ye believe, which
receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that
cometh from God only?
5:45 Do not think that I will
accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth
you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye
would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
5:47 But if ye believe not his
writings, how shall ye believe my words?

FTER these things Jesus went over
the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
6:2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw
his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
6:3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat
with his disciples.
6:4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
6:5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a
great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may
6:6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew
what he would do.
6:7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread
is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a
6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother,
saith unto him,
6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves,
and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
6:10 And Jesus said, Make the men
sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the
men sat down, in number about five thousand.
6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given
thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to
them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as
6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples,
Gather up the fragments that remain, that
nothing be lost.
6:13 Therefore they gathered them together, and
filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley
loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had
6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that
Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should
come into the world.
6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come
and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again
into a mountain himself alone.
6:16 And when even was now come, his disciples
went down unto the sea,
6:17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea
toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come
6:18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that
6:19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or
thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing
nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
6:20 But he saith unto them, It is
I; be not afraid.
6:21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and
immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
6:22 The day following, when the people which stood on
the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat
there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and
that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but
that his disciples were gone away alone;
6:23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh
unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord
had given thanks:)
6:24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not
there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came
to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
6:25 And when they had found him on the other side of
the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou
6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not
because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the
loaves, and were filled.
6:27 Labour not for the meat which
perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting
life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath
God the Father sealed.
6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we
might work the works of God?
6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom
he hath sent.
6:30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest
thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou
6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is
written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not
that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread
6:33 For the bread of God is he
which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the
6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us
6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I
am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger;
and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
6:36 But I said unto you, That ye
also have seen me, and believe not.
6:37 All that the Father giveth me
shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise
6:38 For I came down from heaven,
not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent
6:39 And this is the Father's will
which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should
lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last
6:40 And this is the will of him
that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth
on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at
the last day.
6:41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I
am the bread which came down from heaven.
6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of
Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he
saith, I came down from heaven?
6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them,
Murmur not among yourselves.
6:44 No man can come to me, except
the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up
at the last day.
6:45 It is written in the
prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man
therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father,
cometh unto me.
6:46 Not that any man hath seen
the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the
6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
6:48 I am that bread of
6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in
the wilderness, and are dead.
6:50 This is the bread which
cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not
6:51 I am the living bread which
came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall
live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh,
which I will give for the life of the world.
6:52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying,
How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the
flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up
at the last day.
6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed.
6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
6:57 As the living Father hath
sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even
he shall live by me.
6:58 This is that bread which came
down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are
dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for
6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught
6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had
heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear
6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples
murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth
this offend you?
6:62 What and if ye shall
see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
6:63 It is the spirit that
quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak
unto you, they are spirit, and they are
6:64 But there are some of you
that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who
they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
6:65 And he said, Therefore said I
unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given
unto him of my Father.
6:66 From that time many of his disciples went
back, and walked no more with him.
6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall
we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
6:69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that
Christ, the Son of the living God.
6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not
I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
6:71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon:
for he it was that should betray him, being one of the

FTER these things Jesus walked in
Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews
sought to kill him.
7:2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence,
and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works
that thou doest.
7:4 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.
7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My
time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7:7 The world cannot hate you; but
me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof
7:8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go
not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full
7:9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode
still in Galilee.
7:10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he
also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in
7:11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said,
Where is he?
7:12 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.
7:13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the
7:14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into
the temple, and taught.
7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this
man letters, having never learned?
7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent
7:17 If any man will do his will,
he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or
whether I speak of myself.
7:18 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
7:19 Did not Moses give you the
law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye
about to kill me?
7:20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil:
who goeth about to kill thee?
7:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
7:22 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.
7:23 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?
7:24 Judge not according to the
appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
7:25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this
he, whom they seek to kill?
7:26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing
unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very
7:27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when
Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
7:28 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.
7:29 But I know him: for I am from
him, and he hath sent me.
7:30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands
on him, because his hour was not yet come.
7:31 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?
7:32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such
things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests
sent officers to take him.
7:33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I
go unto him that sent me.
7:34 Ye shall seek me, and shall
not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot
7:35 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?
7:36 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?
7:37 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.
7:38 He that believeth on me, as
the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of
7:39 (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.)
7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this
saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
7:41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said,
Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
7:42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of
the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where
7:43 So there was a division among the people because of
7:44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man
laid hands on him.
7:45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and
Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought
7:46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this
7:47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also
7:48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed
7:49 But this people who knoweth not the law are
7:50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus
by night, being one of them,)
7:51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear
him, and know what he doeth?
7:52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of
Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no
7:53 And every man went unto his own house.

ESUS went unto the mount of
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the
temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a
woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in
adultery, in the very act.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should
be stoned: but what sayest thou?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have
to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his
finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up
himself, and said unto them, He that is
without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by
their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at
the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left
alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but
the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where
are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no
8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that
followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest
record of thyself; thy record is not true.
8:14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record
is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye
cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I
judge no man.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my
judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that
8:17 It is also written in your
law, that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am one that bear witness of
myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of
8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus
answered, Ye neither know me, nor my
Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father
8:20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he
taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his
hour was not yet come.
8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in
your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because
he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are
from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not
of this world.
8:24 I said therefore unto you,
that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am
he, ye shall die in your sins.
8:25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus
saith unto them, Even the same
that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:26 I have many things to say and
to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to
the world those things which I have heard of him.
8:27 They understood not that he spake to them of the
8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye
know that I am he, and that I do nothing of
myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these
8:29 And he that sent me is with
me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those
things that please him.
8:30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on
him, If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;
8:32 And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.
8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were
never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant
8:35 And the servant abideth not
in the house for ever: but the Son abideth
8:36 If the Son therefore shall
make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's
seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in
8:38 I speak that which I have
seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with
8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our
father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were
Abraham's children, ye would do the works of
8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a
man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God:
this did not Abraham.
8:41 Ye do the deeds of your
father. Then said they to him, We be not born of
fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God
were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and
came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent
8:43 Why do ye not understand my
speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
8:44 Ye are of your father
the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a
murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he
speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of
8:45 And because I tell you
the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46 Which of you convinceth me of
sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe
8:47 He that is of God heareth
God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are
not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we
not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a
devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour
8:50 And I seek not mine own
glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see
8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou
hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou
sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of
8:53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is
dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour
myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth
me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
8:55 Yet ye have not known him;
but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be
a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced
to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty
years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus
hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the
midst of them, and so passed by.
[ John: Chapter 8:
| Verses: 59 | Words: 1307 ]
ND as Jesus passed by, he
saw a man which was blind from his birth.
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did
sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath
this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God
should be made manifest in him.
9:4 I must work the works of him
that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man
9:5 As long as I am in the world,
I am the light of the world.
9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and
made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind
man with the clay,
9:7 And said unto him, Go, wash in
the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.)
He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
9:8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had
seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and
9:9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is
like him: but he said, I am he.
9:10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes
9:11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus
made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the
pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received
9:12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I
9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime
9:14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the
clay, and opened his eyes.
9:15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had
received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine
eyes, and I washed, and do see.
9:16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is
not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others
said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And
there was a division among them.
9:17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou
of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a
9:18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that
he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called
the parents of him that had received his sight.
9:19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who
ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
9:20 His parents answered them and said, We know that
this is our son, and that he was born blind:
9:21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who
hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he
shall speak for himself.
9:22 These words spake his parents, because they
feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any
man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the
9:23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask
9:24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and
said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a
9:25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or
no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was
blind, now I see.
9:26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee?
how opened he thine eyes?
9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye
did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye
also be his disciples?
9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his
disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
9:29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for
this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
9:30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is
a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and
yet he hath opened mine eyes.
9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if
any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he
9:32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man
opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
9:33 If this man were not of God, he could do
9:34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast
altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he
had found him, he said unto him, Dost
thou believe on the Son of God?
9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might
believe on him?
9:37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou
hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with
9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped
9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment
I am come into this world, that they which see not might see;
and that they which see might be made blind.
9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with
him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind
9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye
were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see;
therefore your sin remaineth.
[ John: Chapter 9:
| Verses: 41 | Words: 876 ]
verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into
the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a
thief and a robber.
10:2 But he that entereth in by
the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3 To him the porter openeth;
and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by
name, and leadeth them out.
10:4 And when he putteth forth his
own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for
they know his voice.
10:5 And a stranger will they not
follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of
10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they
understood not what things they were which he spake unto
10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the
10:8 All that ever came before me
are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear
10:9 I am the door: by me if any
man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and
10:10 The thief cometh not, but
for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they
might have life, and that they might have it more
10:11 I am the good shepherd: the
good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
10:12 But he that is an hireling,
and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the
wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf
catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
10:13 The hireling fleeth, because
he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
10:14 I am the good shepherd, and
know my sheep, and am known of mine.
10:15 As the Father knoweth me,
even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the
10:16 And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they
shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and
10:17 Therefore doth my Father
love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it
10:18 No man taketh it from me,
but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I
have power to take it again. This commandment have I received
of my Father.
10:19 There was a division therefore again among the
Jews for these sayings.
10:20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is
mad; why hear ye him?
10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that
hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the
dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's
10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto
him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the
Christ, tell us plainly.
10:25 Jesus answered them, I told
you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's
name, they bear witness of me.
10:26 But ye believe not, because
ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and
I know them, and they follow me:
10:28 And I give unto them eternal
life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man
pluck them out of my hand.
10:29 My Father, which gave
them me, is greater than all; and no man is able
to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

10:32 Jesus answered them, Many
good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those
works do ye stone me?
10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we
stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being
a man, makest thyself God.
10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it
not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
10:35 If he called them gods, unto
whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be

Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou
blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
10:37 If I do not the works of my
Father, believe me not.
10:38 But if I do, though ye
believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and
believe, that the Father is in me, and I in
10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he
escaped out of their hand,
10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place
where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
10:41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no
miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were
10:42 And many believed on him there.
[ John: Chapter 10:
| Verses: 42 | Words: 820 ]
OW a certain man was sick,
named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her
11:2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord
with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother
Lazarus was sick.)
11:3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord,
behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of
God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and
11:6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he
abode two days still in the same place where he was.
11:7 Then after that saith he to his disciples,
Let us go into Judaea again.
11:8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews
of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not
twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he
stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this
11:10 But if a man walk in the
night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in
11:11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto
them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I
go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
11:12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he
shall do well.
11:13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought
that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
11:14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
11:15 And I am glad for your sakes
that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe;
nevertheless let us go unto him.
11:16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto
his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with
11:17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had
lain in the grave four days already.
11:18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen
11:19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to
comfort them concerning their brother.
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was
coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the
11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst
been here, my brother had not died.
11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt
ask of God, God will give it thee.
11:23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy
brother shall rise again.
11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise
again in the resurrection at the last day.
11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am
the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though
he were dead, yet shall he live:
11:26 And whosoever liveth and
believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou
11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou
art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the
11:28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and
called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come,
and calleth for thee.
11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose
quickly, and came unto him.
11:30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was
in that place where Martha met him.
11:31 The Jews then which were with her in the house,
and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily
and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to
11:32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw
him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou
hadst been here, my brother had not died.
11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews
also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and
11:34 And said, Where have ye laid
him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
11:35 Jesus wept.
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
11:37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which
opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man
should not have died?
11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh
to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the
stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith
unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been
dead four days.
11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I
not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest
see the glory of God?
11:41 Then they took away the stone from the
place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up
his eyes, and said, Father, I
thank thee that thou hast heard me.
11:42 And I knew that thou hearest
me always: but because of the people which stand by I said
it, that they may believe that thou hast sent
11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud
voice, Lazarus, come forth.
11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and
foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a
napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him,
and let him go.
11:45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had
seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
11:46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees,
and told them what things Jesus had done.
11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees
a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many
11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men will
believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both
our place and nation.
11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the
high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one
man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish
11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high
priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that
11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he
should gather together in one the children of God that were
11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel
together for to put him to death.
11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the
Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness,
into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his
11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many
went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to
11:56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among
themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he
will not come to the feast?
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had
given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he
should shew it, that they might take him.
[ John: Chapter 11:
| Verses: 57 | Words: 1157 ]
HEN Jesus six days before the
passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been
dead, whom he raised from the dead.
12:2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served:
but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard,
very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet
with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the
12:4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot,
Simon's son, which should betray him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred
pence, and given to the poor?
12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but
because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put
12:7 Then said Jesus, Let her
alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept
12:8 For the poor always ye have
with you; but me ye have not always.
12:9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was
there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they
might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
12:10 But the chief priests consulted that they might
put Lazarus also to death;
12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews
went away, and believed on Jesus.
12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the
feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to
meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of
Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat
thereon; as it is written,
12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King
cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
12:16 These things understood not his disciples at the
first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that
these things were written of him, and that they had done
these things unto him.
12:17 The people therefore that was with him when he
called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead,
12:18 For this cause the people also met him, for that
they heard that he had done this miracle.
12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves,
Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone
12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came
up to worship at the feast:
12:21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of
Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would
12:22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew
and Philip tell Jesus.
12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be
12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it
abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much
12:25 He that loveth his life
shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall
keep it unto life eternal.
12:26 If any man serve me, let him
follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if
any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and
what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this
cause came I unto this hour.
12:28 Father, glorify thy
name. Then came there a voice from heaven,
saying, I have both glorified it, and will
glorify it again.
12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard
it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake
12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your
12:31 Now is the judgment of this
world: now shall the prince of this world be cast
12:32 And I, if I be lifted up
from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should
12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the
law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son
of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while
ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that
walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
12:36 While ye have light, believe
in the light, that ye may be the children of light.
These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself
12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before
them, yet they believed not on him:
12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be
fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report?
and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that
Esaias said again,
12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their
heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor
understand with their heart, and be converted, and I
should heal them.
12:41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory,
and spake of him.
12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many
believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not
confess him, lest they should be put out of the
12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the
praise of God.
12:44 Jesus cried and said, He
that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent
12:45 And he that seeth me seeth
him that sent me.
12:46 I am come a light into the
world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in
12:47 And if any man hear my
words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to
judge the world, but to save the world.
12:48 He that rejecteth me, and
receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word
that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last
12:49 For I have not spoken of
myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment,
what I should say, and what I should speak.
12:50 And I know that his
commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore,
even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
[ John: Chapter 12:
| Verses: 50 | Words: 1061 ]
OW before the feast of the
passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should
depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own
which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put
into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray
13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things
into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to
13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments;
and took a towel, and girded himself.
13:5 After that he poureth water into a basin, and began
to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the
towel wherewith he was girded.
13:6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto
him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know
13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my
feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee
not, thou hast no part with me.
13:9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only,
but also my hands and my head.
13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that
is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is
clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
13:11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said
he, Ye are not all clean.
13:12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken
his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them,
Know ye what I have done to
13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord:
and ye say well; for so I am.
13:14 If I then, your Lord
and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one
13:15 For I have given you an
example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that
is sent greater than he that sent him.
13:17 If ye know these things,
happy are ye if ye do them.
13:18 I speak not of you all: I
know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be
fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel
13:19 Now I tell you before it
come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am
13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he
that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
13:21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in
spirit, and testified, and said, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray
13:22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting
of whom he spake.
13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his
disciples, whom Jesus loved.
13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he
should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him,
Lord, who is it?
13:26 Jesus answered, He it is, to
whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it.
And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas
Iscariot, the son of Simon.
13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then
said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do
13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he
spake this unto him.
13:29 For some of them thought, because Judas had
the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things
that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give
something to the poor.
13:30 He then having received the sop went immediately
out: and it was night.
13:31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said,
Now is the Son of man glorified, and God
is glorified in him.
13:32 If God be glorified in him,
God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway
13:33 Little children, yet a
little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said
unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to
13:34 A new commandment I give
unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that
ye also love one another.
13:35 By this shall all men
know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to
13:36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest
thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go,
thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me
13:37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow
thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt
thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me
[ John: Chapter 13:
| Verses: 38 | Words: 826 ]
ET not your
heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in
14:2 In my Father's house are many
mansions: if it were not so, I would have told
you. I go to prepare a place for you.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.
14:4 And whither I go ye know, and
the way ye know.
14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither
thou goest; and how can we know the way?
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me.
14:7 If ye had known me, ye should
have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and
have seen him.
14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father,
and it sufficeth us.
14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I
been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me,
Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how
sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
14:10 Believest thou not that I am
in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak
unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in
me, he doeth the works.
14:11 Believe me that I am
in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the
very works' sake.
14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do
also; and greater works than these shall he do; because
I go unto my Father.
14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask
in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in
14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in
my name, I will do it.
14:15 If ye love me, keep my
14:16 And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with
you for ever;
14:17 Even the Spirit of
truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.
14:18 I will not leave you
comfortless: I will come to you.
14:19 Yet a little while, and the
world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall
14:20 At that day ye shall know
that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in
14:21 He that hath my
commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he
that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love
him, and will manifest myself to him.
14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is
it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the
14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my
Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our
abode with him.
14:24 He that loveth me not
keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine,
but the Father's which sent me.
14:25 These things have I spoken
unto you, being yet present with you.
14:26 But the Comforter, which
is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he
shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
14:27 Peace I leave with you, my
peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto
you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be
14:28 Ye have heard how I said
unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye
loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
Father: for my Father is greater than I.
14:29 And now I have told you
before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might
14:30 Hereafter I will not talk
much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath
nothing in me.
14:31 But that the world may know
that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment,
even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

am the true vine, and my Father is the
15:2 Every branch in me that
beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that
beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more
15:3 Now ye are clean through the
word which I have spoken unto you.
15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As
the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the
vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
15:5 I am the vine, ye are
the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same
bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
15:6 If a man abide not in me, he
is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather
them, and cast them into the fire, and they are
15:7 If ye abide in me, and my
words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be
done unto you.
15:8 Herein is my Father
glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my
15:9 As the Father hath loved me,
so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
15:10 If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's
commandments, and abide in his love.
15:11 These things have I spoken
unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your
joy might be full.
15:12 This is my commandment, That
ye love one another, as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love hath no man
than this, that a man lay down his life for his
15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do
whatsoever I command you.
15:15 Henceforth I call you not
servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but
I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of
my Father I have made known unto you.
15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I
have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring
forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that
whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give
15:17 These things I command you,
that ye love one another.
15:18 If the world hate you, ye
know that it hated me before it hated you.
15:19 If ye were of the world, the
world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world,
but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world
15:20 Remember the word that I
said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If
they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they
have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
15:21 But all these things will
they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him
that sent me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken
unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for
15:23 He that hateth me hateth my
15:24 If I had not done among them
the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but
now have they both seen and hated both me and my
15:25 But this cometh to
pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in
their law, They hated me without a cause.
15:26 But when the Comforter is
come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even
the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall
testify of me:
15:27 And ye also shall bear
witness, because ye have been with me from the
[ John: Chapter 15:
| Verses: 27 | Words: 613 ]
have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be
16:2 They shall put you out of the
synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you
will think that he doeth God service.
16:3 And these things will they do
unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor
16:4 But these things have I told
you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told
you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the
beginning, because I was with you.
16:5 But now I go my way to him
that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest
16:6 But because I have said these
things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the
truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not
away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I
will send him unto you.
16:8 And when he is come, he will
reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of
16:9 Of sin, because they believe
not on me;
16:10 Of righteousness, because I
go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
16:11 Of judgment, because the
prince of this world is judged.
16:12 I have yet many things to
say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit
of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he
shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to
16:14 He shall glorify me: for he
shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto
16:15 All things that the Father
hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine,
and shall shew it unto you.
16:16 A little while, and ye shall
not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me,
because I go to the Father.
16:17 Then said some of his disciples among
themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while,
and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye
shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
16:18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A
little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
16:19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him,
and said unto them, Do ye enquire among
yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see
me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto
you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall
rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be
turned into joy.
16:21 A woman when she is in
travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as
she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the
anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
16:22 And ye now therefore have
sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice,
and your joy no man taketh from you.
16:23 And in that day ye shall ask
me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall
ask the Father in my name, he will give it
16:24 Hitherto have ye asked
nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy
may be full.
16:25 These things have I spoken
unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more
speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the
16:26 At that day ye shall ask in
my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father
16:27 For the Father himself
loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I
came out from God.
16:28 I came forth from the
Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world,
and go to the Father.
16:29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou
plainly, and speakest no proverb.
16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and
needest not that any man should ask thee: but this we believe
that thou camest forth from God.
16:31 Jesus answered them, Do ye
16:32 Behold, the hour cometh,
yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his
own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because
the Father is with me.
16:33 These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall
have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the

HESE words spake Jesus, and
lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy
Son also may glorify thee:
17:2 As thou hast given him power
over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as
thou hast given him.
17:3 And this is life eternal,
that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent.
17:4 I have glorified thee on the
earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to
17:5 And now, O Father, glorify
thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with
thee before the world was.
17:6 I have manifested thy name
unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they
were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy
17:7 Now they have known that all
things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
17:8 For I have given unto them
the words which thou gavest me; and they have received
them, and have known surely that I came out from thee,
and they have believed that thou didst send me.
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not
for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they
17:10 And all mine are thine, and
thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
17:11 And now I am no more in the
world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy
Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given
me, that they may be one, as we are.
17:12 While I was with them in the
world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I
have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition;
that the scripture might be fulfilled.
17:13 And now come I to thee; and
these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy
fulfilled in themselves.
17:14 I have given them thy word;
and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the
world, even as I am not of the world.
17:15 I pray not that thou
shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest
keep them from the evil.
17:16 They are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them through thy
truth: thy word is truth.
17:18 As thou hast sent me into
the world, even so have I also sent them into the
17:19 And for their sakes I
sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the
17:20 Neither pray I for these
alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through
17:21 That they all may be one; as
thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also
may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast
17:22 And the glory which thou
gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we
17:23 I in them, and thou in me,
that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may
know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast
17:24 Father, I will that they
also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they
may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst
me before the foundation of the world.
17:25 O righteous Father, the
world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these
have known that thou hast sent me.
17:26 And I have declared unto
them thy name, and will declare it: that the love
wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in

HEN Jesus had spoken these words,
he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where
was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
18:2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place:
for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
18:3 Judas then, having received a band of men
and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh
thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should
come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith
unto them, I am he. And
Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
18:6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am
he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of
18:8 Jesus answered, I have told
you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go
18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake,
Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote
the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The
servant's name was Malchus.
18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my
Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
18:12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the
Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father
in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the
Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did
another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest,
and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out
that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and
spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
18:17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto
Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He
saith, I am not.
18:18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had
made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed
themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples,
and of his doctrine.
18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake
openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the
temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I
18:21 Why askest thou me? ask them
which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know
what I said.
18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers
which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying,
Answerest thou the high priest so?
18:23 Jesus answered him, If I
have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why
smitest thou me?
18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the
18:25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They
said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his
disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
18:26 One of the servants of the high priest, being
his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I
see thee in the garden with him?
18:27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock
18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of
judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into
the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they
might eat the passover.
18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What
accusation bring ye against this man?
18:30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a
malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge
him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It
is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which
he spake, signifying what death he should die.
18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again,
and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the
18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest
thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of
18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and
the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou
18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom
is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then
would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the
Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king
then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I
am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I
into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.
Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he
had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto
them, I find in him no fault at all.
18:39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto
you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto
you the King of the Jews?
18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man,
but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
[ John: Chapter 18:
| Verses: 40 | Words: 947 ]
HEN Pilate therefore took Jesus,
and scourged him.
19:2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put
it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
19:3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote
him with their hands.
19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto
them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I
find no fault in him.
19:5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns,
and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold
19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw
him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify
him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify
him: for I find no fault in him.
19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our
law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of
19:8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the
19:9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith
unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto
me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and
have power to release thee?
19:11 Jesus answered, Thou
couldest have no power at all against me, except it were
given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee
hath the greater sin.
19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him:
but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou
art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king
speaketh against Caesar.
19:13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he
brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a
place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew,
19:14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and
about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your
19:15 But they cried out, Away with him, away
with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I
crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king
19:16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be
crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
19:17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place
called the place of a skull, which is called in the
19:18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him,
on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the
cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE
19:20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the
place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it
was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
19:21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate,
Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of
19:22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have
19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus,
took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a
part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam,
woven from the top throughout.
19:24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not
rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the
scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my
raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots.
These things therefore the soldiers did.
19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother,
and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and
19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the
disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother,
Woman, behold thy son!
19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that
disciple took her unto his own home.
19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith,
19:29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and
they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon
hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he
said, It is finished: and he bowed
his head, and gave up the ghost.
19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the
preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross
on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,)
besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and
that they might be taken away.
19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the
first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was
dead already, they brake not his legs:
19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his
side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his
record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye
19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture
should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look
on him whom they pierced.
19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a
disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought
Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate
gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of
19:39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first
came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and
aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
19:40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in
linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to
19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was
a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never
man yet laid.
19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the
Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at

HE first day of the week
cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the
sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the
20:2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to
the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They
have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not
where they have laid him.
20:3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other
disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
20:4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple
did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
20:5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw
the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
20:6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went
into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
20:7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying
with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by
20:8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came
first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
20:9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he
must rise again from the dead.
20:10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own
20:11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping:
and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the
20:12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at
the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus
20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?
She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and
I know not where they have laid him.
20:14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself
back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was
20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman,
why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him
to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him
hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him
20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him,
Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch
me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my
brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your
Father; and to my God, and your God.
20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that
she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these
things unto her.
20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first
day of the week, when the doors were shut where the
disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and
stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them
his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad,
when they saw the Lord.
20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath
sent me, even so send I you.
20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on
them, and saith unto them, Receive
ye the Holy Ghost:
20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit,
they are remitted unto them; and whose soever
sins ye retain, they are retained.
20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was
not with them when Jesus came.
20:25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We
have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see
in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the
print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will
20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were
within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors
being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and
reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and
be not faithless, but believing.
20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and
20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast
believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and
yet have believed.
20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the
presence of his disciples, which are not written in this
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye
might have life through his name.
[ John: Chapter 20:
| Verses: 31 | Words: 759 ]
FTER these things Jesus shewed
himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on
this wise shewed he himself.
21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called
Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons
of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They
say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and
entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught
21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on
the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him,
21:6 And he said unto them, Cast
the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall
find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to
draw it for the multitude of fishes.
21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto
Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was
the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him,
(for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for
they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred
cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a
fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
21:10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring
of the fish which ye have now caught.
21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full
of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all
there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
21:12 Jesus saith unto them, Come
and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask
him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth
them, and fish likewise.
21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed
himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the
21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon
Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest
thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord;
thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
21:16 He saith to him again the second time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou
me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I
love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?
Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time,
Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all
things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him,
Feed my sheep.
21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst
whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt
stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry
thee whither thou wouldest not.
21:19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should
glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him,
21:20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom
Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at
supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21:21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what
shall this man do?
21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I
will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
follow thou me.
21:23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren,
that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him,
He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come,
what is that to thee?
21:24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these
things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony
21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus
did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose
that even the world itself could not contain the books that
should be written. Amen.
