John 7

CHAPTER 7

Jesus at the Feast of Tabernacles

And Jesus was walking with these in Galilee, for he did not want [2in 3Judea 1to walk], for [3sought 5him 1the 2Jews 4to kill]. And it was near the holiday of the Jews -- the one of pitching tents. [3said 1Then 4to 5him 2his brothers], Cross over from here, and go into Judea! that also your disciples should view your works which you do. For no one [2in 3secret 1does anything], and [2seeks 1he himself 4in 5an open manner 3to be]. If these things you do, manifest yourself to the world! For neither his brothers believed in him. Then says Jesus to them, [2time 1My] is not yet at hand; but [2time 1your] at all times is ready. [3is not 4able 1The 2world] to detest you; but me it detests, for I testify concerning it, that its works are evil. You ascend unto this holiday feast! I not yet ascend unto this holiday feast, for [2time 1my] has not yet been fulfilled. And these things having said to them, he stayed in Galilee. 10 But as [2ascended 1his brothers], then also he ascended unto the holiday feast, not openly, but as in secret. 11 Then the Jews sought him during the holiday feast, and they said, Where is that one? 12 And [3grumbling 2much 4concerning 5him 1there was] among the multitudes. Some said that, He is good. Others said, No, but he misleads the multitude! 13 No one however in an open manner spoke concerning him for fear of the Jews.

Jesus Teaches in the Temple

14 But already [2of the 3holiday 1being in the middle], Jesus ascended into the temple, and was teaching. 15 And [3marvelled 1the 2Jews], saying, How did this one [2letters 1know], not having learned? 16 [2answered 3them 1Jesus], and said, My teaching is not mine, but the one having sent me. 17 If anyone should want [2his will 1to do], he shall know concerning the teaching, whether [2of 3God 1it is], or I [2from 3myself 1speak]. 18 The one [2from 3himself 1speaking], [3glory 2his own 1seeks]; but the one seeking the glory of the one having sent him, this one is true, and unrighteousness [2in 3him 1is not]. 19 Has not Moses given you the law, and not one of you practices the law? Why [3me 1do you seek 2to kill]? 20 [3answered 1The 2multitude] and said, [2a demon 1You have]; who [3you 1seeks 2to kill]? 21 Jesus answered and said to them, One work I did, and you all marvel. 22 On account of this Moses has given to you circumcision, not that [2from 3Moses 1it is], but from the fathers; and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man. 23 If [3circumcision 2receives 1a man] on the Sabbath, that [4should not 5be untied 1the 2law 3of Moses], [2with me 1why are you incensed] that entirely [2a man 3in health 1I made] on the Sabbath? 24 Judge not according to appearance, but [2righteous 3judgment 1judge]! 25 Said then some of the ones of Jerusalem, [2not 1Is this] whom they seek to kill? 26 And you see! [2in an open manner 1he speaks], and [2nothing 3to him 1they say]; perhaps truly [3know 1the 2rulers] that this is truly the Christ. 27 But this we know from what place he is; but the Christ whenever he should come, no one knows from what place he is. 28 [3cried out 2then 4in 5the 6temple 7teaching 1Jesus], and saying, And me you have known, and you have known from what place I am. And of myself I have not come, but [4is 5true 1the one 2sending 3me], whom you know not. 29 I have known him, for from him I am, and that one sent me. 30 They were seeking then to lay hold of him; and no one put [3upon 4him 1their 2hand], for [2had not yet 3come 1his hour]. 31 But many from out of the multitude believed in him, and said that, The Christ, whenever he should come, will [2more 3signs 4than these 1he do] which this one did? 32 [3heard 1The 2Pharisees] of the multitude murmuring [2concerning 3him 1these things]; and [6sent 7officers 1the 2Pharisees 3and 4the 5chief priests] that they should lay hold of him. 33 [2said 3then 4to them 1Jesus], Still a little time [2with 3you 1I am], and I go away to the one having sent me. 34 You shall seek me, and shall not find; and where I am, you are not able to come. 35 [3said 4then 1The 2Jews] to themselves, Where is this one about to go that we shall not find him? Is [3unto 4the 5dispersion 6of the 7Greeks 1he about 2to go], and to teach the Greeks? 36 What is this word which he said, You shall seek me, and shall not find; and, Where I am, you are not able to come? 37 And during the last day, the great one of the holiday feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone should thirst, come to me and drink! 38 The one believing in me, as [3said 1the 2scripture], [4rivers 1From out of 2his belly 3shall flow 6water 5of living]. 39 But this he said concerning the spirit, of which [5were about 6to receive 1the ones 2believing 3in 4him]; [3not yet 1for 2there was 5spirit 4holy], for Jesus was not yet glorified. 40 Many then from out of the multitude, hearing the word, said, This is truly the prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. And others said, Does [4from out of 5Galilee 1the 2Christ 3come]? 42 [2not 3the 4scripture 1Said] that from out of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, of the town where David was from, the Christ comes? 43 A split then among the multitude took place because of him. 44 But some [3wanted 1of 2them] to lay hold of him, but no one put [3upon 4him 1the 2hands].

The Unbelief of the Religious Leaders

45 Came then the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees, and [2said 3to them 1those], For why did you not bring him? 46 [3answered 1The 2officers], At no time thus spoke a man as this man. 47 [3responded 4then 5to them 1The 2Pharisees], Have you also been misled? 48 Did any of the rulers believe in him, or of the Pharisees? 49 But this multitude, the one not knowing the law, they are accursed. 50 Nicodemus says to them, (the one coming by night to him, being one of them), 51 Does our law judge the man, if it not be heard from him prior, and made known what he does? 52 They answered and said to him, [2you also 3from out of 4Galilee 1Are]? Search and see! that a prophet [2from out of 3Galilee 1arises not]. 53 And [2went 1each] unto his house.
