John 5:2-9

2Now there is in Jerusalem by athe Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic
Or Hebrew
called Bethesda
Some manuscripts Bethsaida
which has five roofed colonnades.
3In these lay a multitude of invalidsblind, lame, and dparalyzed.
Some manuscripts insert, wholly or in part, waiting for the moving of the water; 4for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool, and stirred the water: whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water was healed of whatever disease he had
5One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” 7The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” 8Jesus said to him, fGet up, take up your bed, and walk.” 9 gAnd at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked.

hNow that day was the Sabbath.
