THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

John (Author John)

7:14Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

7:15And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

7:16Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

7:17If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

7:18He 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 him.

7:19Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

7:20The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

7:21Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.

7:22Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.

7:23If 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?

7:24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

7:25Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?

7:26But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

7:27Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

7:28Then 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.

7:29But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

7:30Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

7:31And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?

7:32The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.

7:33Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.

7:34Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.

7:35Then 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?

7:36What 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?

7:37In 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.

7:38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

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.)

7:40Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

7:41Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

7:42Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

7:43So there was a division among the people because of him.

7:44And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.

7:45Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

7:46The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

7:47Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?

7:48Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

7:49But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

7:50Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)

7:51Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

7:52They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

7:53And every man went unto his own house.
