John 7

Book of John - Chapter 7

John 7:1

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

John 7:2

Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

John 7:3

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

John 7:4

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

John 7:5

For neither did his brethren believe in him.

John 7:6

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

John 7:7

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

John 7:8

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

John 7:9

When he had said these words unto them, he abode [still] in Galilee.

John 7:10

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

John 7:11

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

John 7:12

And 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.

John 7:13

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

John 7:14

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

John 7:15

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

John 7:16

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

John 7:17

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

John 7:18

He 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.

John 7:19

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

John 7:20

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

John 7:21

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

John 7:22

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

John 7:23

If 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?

John 7:24

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

John 7:25

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

John 7:26

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

John 7:27

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

John 7:28

Then 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.

John 7:29

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

John 7:30

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

John 7:31

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

John 7:32

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

John 7:33

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

John 7:34

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

John 7:35

Then 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?

John 7:36

What [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?

John 7:37

In 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.

John 7:38

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

John 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.)

John 7:40

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

John 7:41

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

John 7:42

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

John 7:43

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

John 7:44

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

John 7:45

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

John 7:46

The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

John 7:47

Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?

John 7:48

Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

John 7:49

But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

John 7:50

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

John 7:51

Doth our law judge [any] man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

John 7:52

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

John 7:53

And every man went unto his own house.
