is above all : he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth ; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33 He that hath received his testimony, hath set to his seal that God is true. 34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God; for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of Godabideth

HEN, therefore, the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2 (Though Jesus himself, baptized not; but his disciples,) 3. He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria. . . 5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar.

Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus, therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. 7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water : Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink: 8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9 Then 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 2 (for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.) 10 Jesus 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. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep : from whence then hast thou that living water 2 - 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle : 13 Jesus answered, and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again : 14 But 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. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and comehither,

sid, I have no husband. Jesus slid unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; in that saidst thou truly. 19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, That in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what : we know what we worship ; for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But 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. 24 God is a spirit: and they that worship him, must worship Åim in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ : when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am be. 27 of And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman; yet no Than said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her 28 The woman then left her water-pot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did : is not this the Christ? 30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

31 || In the mean-while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. 32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of 33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? 34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 35 Say 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. 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal; that both he that Soweth, and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38 Isent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. 39 || And 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. 40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. 41 And many more believed, because of his own word; 42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard Aim ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

departed thence, and went into Galilee: 44. For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. 45 Then, when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast. 46 So 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. 47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea 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. 48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. - 49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. 50 Jesus 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. 51 And, as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth ! 52 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the sever left him. 53 So 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. 54. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was

of Bethesda. CHAP. V. The impotent man healed. FTER this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2. Now there is at Jerusalem, by the sheep-market, a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue, Bethesda, having five porches. 3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. 4 For 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 ople of whatsoever disease he aCl. 5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 6 When 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 : 7 The 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. 8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. 10 || The Jews, therefore, said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath-day; it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. 11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said

Take up thy bed, and walk.
13 And he that was healed wist
not who it was: for Jesus had
conveyed himself away, a multi-
tude being in that place.
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him
in the temple, and said unto him,
Behold, thou art made whole: sin
Ino more, lest a worse thing come
unto thee.
15 The man departed, and told
the Jews, that it was Jesus which
had made him whole.
16 And therefore did the Jews
persecute Jesus, and sought to
slay him, because he had done
these things on the sabbath-day.
17 | But Jesus answered them,
My Father worketh hitherto, and
I work.
18 Therefore 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.
19 || Then 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.
20 For 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.
2. For as the Father raiseth up
the dead, and quickeneth them;
even so the Sonquickeneth whom
he will.
22 For the Father judgeth no
man, but hath committed all
judgment unto the Son:
23 That 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,

25 Verily, 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.
26 For as the Father hath life in
himself, so hath he given to the
Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him autho-
rity to execute judgment also, be-
cause he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the
hour is coming, in the which all
that are in the graves shall hear
his voice, -

that have done good, unto the re-

Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you; for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. 39 || Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 Andye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 || I receive not honour from InCI). 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not : if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only : 45 || Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moscs, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my

3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 When 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 (And this, he said to prove him : for he himself knew what he would do.) 7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, 9 There is a lad here which hath five barley-loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many : 1o And 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. 11 And 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. 12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 13 Therefore 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. 14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus
