5:1After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
5:2Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
5:3In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
5:4For 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.
5:5And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
5:6When 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?
5:7The 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.
5:8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
5:9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
5:10The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
5:11He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
5:12Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
5:13And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
5:14Afterward 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.
5:15The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
5:16And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
