THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

John (Author John)

7:1After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

7:2Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

7:3His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

7:4For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

7:5For neither did his brethren believe in him.

7:6Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

7:7The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

7:8Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.

7:9When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

7:10But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

7:11Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

7:12And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.

7:13Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.

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.

8:1Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

8:2And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

8:3And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

8:4They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

8:5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

8:6This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

8:7So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8:8And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

8:9And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

8:10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

8:11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

8:13The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

8:14Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

8:15Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

8:16And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

8:17It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

8:18I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

8:19Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

8:20These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

8:21Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

8:22Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

8:23And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

8:25Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

8:26I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

8:27They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

8:28Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

8:29And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

8:30As he spake these words, many believed on him.

8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

8:32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

8:33They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

8:34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

8:35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

8:36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

8:37I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

8:38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

8:39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

8:40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

8:41Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

8:42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

8:43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

8:44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

8:45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

8:46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

8:47He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

8:48Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

8:49Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

8:50And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

8:52Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

8:53Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

8:54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

8:55Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

8:56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

8:57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

8:59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

9:1And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

9:2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

9:3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

9:4I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

9:5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

9:6When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

9:7And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

9:8The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9:9Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

9:10Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

9:11He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

9:12Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

9:13They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

9:14And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

9:15Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

9:16Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

9:17They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

9:18But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.

9:19And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

9:20His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

9:21But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.

9:22These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

9:23Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

9:24Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

9:25He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

9:26Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?

9:27He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

9:28Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.

9:29We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

9:30The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

9:31Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

9:32Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

9:33If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

9:34They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

9:35Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

9:36He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

9:37And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.

9:38And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

9:39And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

9:40And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

9:41Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

10:1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

10:2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

10:3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

10:4And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

10:5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

10:6This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

10:7Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

10:8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

10:9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10:10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

10:11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

10:12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

10:13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

10:14I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

10:15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

10:16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

10:17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

10:18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

10:19There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

10:20And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

10:21Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

10:22And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

10:23And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

10:24Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

10:25Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

10:26But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

10:27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

10:28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

10:29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

10:30I and my Father are one.

10:31Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

10:32Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

10:33The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

10:34Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

10:35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

10:36Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

10:37If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

10:38But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

10:39Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

10:40And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

10:41And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.

10:42And many believed on him there.
