John 21


Jesus Appears at the Sea of Tiberias

1After these things [2manifested 3himself 4again 1Jesus] to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. And he manifested thus -- 2were together Simon Peter, and Thomas, the one being called Didymus, and Nathanael, the one from Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and [2others 3of 4his disciples 1two]. 3[3says 4to them 1Simon 2Peter], I go to fish. They say to him, [3go 2also 1We] with you. And they went forth, ascending into the boat straightly; and in that night they laid hold of nothing. 4And morning already coming to pass, Jesus stood on the shore; not however [3know 1did the 2disciples] that it is Jesus. 5[2then says 3to them 1Jesus], Sons [2anything 3for eating 1do you have]? They answered to him, No. 6 And he said to them, Cast unto the right parts of the boat with the net and you shall find. They cast then, and no longer [2to draw 1were they able] because of the multitude of the fishes. 7Says then that disciple whom Jesus loved to Peter, [2the 3Lord 1It is]. Then Simon Peter, having heard that [2the 3Lord 1it is], [2the outer garment 1girded up], (for he was naked,) and threw himself into the sea. 8And the other disciples [2in the 3boat 1came], ([3not 1for 2they were] far from the land, but about [2cubits 1two hundred],) dragging along the net of the fishes. 9Then as they disembarked onto the land, they see a charcoal bed being situated, and little fish resting upon it, and bread. 10[2says 3to them 1Jesus], bring of the little fish which you laid hold of just now. 11[3ascended 1Simon 2Peter], and he drew the net upon the land full [2fishes 1of great], a hundred and fifty-three; and being so great [3was not 4split 1the 2net]. 12[2says 3to them 1Jesus], Come dine! But no one dared of the disciples to diligently inquire of him, [3you 1Who 2are]? knowing that [2the 3Lord 1it is]. 13Then comes Jesus, and takes the bread, and gives to them, and the little fish in like manner. 14This is already the third time Jesus was manifested to his disciples, having been raised from the dead. 15When therefore they dined, [2says 3to Simon 4Peter 1Jesus], Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me more than these? He says to him, Yes, O Lord, you know that I am fond of you. He says to him, Graze my little lambs! 16He says to him again a second time, Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me? He says to him, Yes, O Lord, you know that I am fond of you. He says to him, Tend my sheep! 17He says to him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, are you fond of me? Peter fretted that he said to him the third time, Are you fond of me? And he said to him, O Lord, you know all things, you know that I am fond of you. [2says 3to him 1Jesus], Graze my sheep! 18Amen, amen, I say to you, When you were younger you tied up yourself, and you walked where you wanted; but whenever you shall grow old, you shall stretch out your hands, and another will tie you up, and shall bring you where you do not want. 19And this he said, signifying by what death he shall glorify God. And this having said, he says to him, You follow me! 20[3turning 1And 2Peter], sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; the one who also reclined at the supper upon his breast and said, O Lord, who is the one delivering you up? 21Seeing this one, Peter says to Jesus, O Lord, [3about this one 1but 2what]? 22[2says 3to him 1Jesus], If I want him to remain until I come, what is it to you? You follow me! 23[3went forth 1Then 2this word] unto the brethren, that that disciple does not die. But [2said not 3to him 1Jesus] that he does not die; but, If I want him to remain until I come, what is it to you? 24This is the disciple, the one witnessing concerning these things, and writing these things; and we know that [2is true 1his witness]. 25And there are also [2other things 1many], as much as Jesus did, which if they should be written one by one, [2not even 5itself 1I imagine 3the 4world] to have space for the [2being written 1scrolls]. Amen.
