THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

John (Author John)

4:1When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

4:2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

4:3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

4:4And he must needs go through Samaria.

4:5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

4:6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

4:7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

4:8(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

4:9Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

4:10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

4:11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

4:12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

4:13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

4:14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

4:15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

4:16Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

4:17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

4:18For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

4:19The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

4:20Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

4:21Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

4:22Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

4:25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

4:26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

4:27And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

4:28The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

4:29Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

4:30Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

4:31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

4:32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

4:33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

4:34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

4:35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

4:36And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

4:37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

4:38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

4:39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

4:40So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

4:41And many more believed because of his own word;

4:42And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

4:43Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

4:44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.

4:45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

4:46So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.

4:47When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

4:48Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

4:49The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.

4:50Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.

4:51And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.

4:52Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

4:53So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.

4:54This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

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.

5:17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

5:18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

5:19Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

5:20For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

5:21For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

5:22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

5:23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

5:24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

5:25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

5:26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

5:27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

5:28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

5:29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

5:30I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

5:31If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

5:32There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

5:33Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

5:34But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

5:35He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

5:36But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

5:37And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

5:38And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

5:40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

5:41I receive not honour from men.

5:42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

5:43I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

5:44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

5:45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

5:46For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.

5:47But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

6:1After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

6:2And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

6:3And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

6:4And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

6:5When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

6:6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

6:7Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

6:8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

6:9There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

6:10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

6:11And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

6:12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

6:13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

6:14Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

6:15When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

6:16And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

6:17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.

6:18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

6:19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.

6:20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

6:21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

6:22The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;

6:23(Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)

6:24When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.

6:25And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

6:26Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

6:27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

6:28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

6:29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

6:30They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

6:31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

6:32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

6:33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

6:34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

6:35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

6:36But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

6:37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

6:38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

6:39And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

6:40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:41The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

6:42And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

6:43Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

6:46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

6:47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

6:48I am that bread of life.

6:49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

6:50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

6:51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

6:52The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

6:53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

6:54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

6:56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

6:57As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

6:58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

6:59These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

6:60Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

6:61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

6:62What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

6:64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

6:65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

6:66From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

6:67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

6:68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

6:69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

6:70Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

6:71He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
