Jesus' Brothers Do Not Believe In Him

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

1 After these things Jesus was walking in Galilee, for He was unwilling to walk in Judea because the Jews were seeking to kill Him.

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

1 After this, Jesus traveled in Galilee, since He did not want to travel in Judea because the Jews were trying to kill Him.

1 After this, Jesus traveled throughout Galilee, because he didn't want to travel in Judea, since the Jewish leaders there were trying to kill him.

2 Now the feast of the Jews, the feast of tabernacles, was at hand.

2 Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was near.

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

2 The Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near,

2 Now the Jewish Festival of Tents was approaching.

3 His brothers therefore said to him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see thy works which thou art doing.

3 Therefore His brothers said to Him, "Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see Your works which You are doing.

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

3 so His brothers said to Him, "Leave here and go to Judea so Your disciples can see Your works that You are doing.

3 So his brothers told him, "You should leave this place and go to Judea, so that your disciples can see the actions that you're doing,

4 For no one doeth anything in secret, and yet himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou doest these things, manifest thyself to the world.

4 "For no one does anything in secret when he himself seeks to be known publicly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world."

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, shew thyself to the world.

4 For no one does anything in secret while he's seeking public recognition. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world."

4 since no one acts in secret if he wants to be known publicly. If you're going to do these things, you should reveal yourself to the world!"

5 For even his brothers did not believe in him.

5 For not even His brothers were believing in Him.

5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

5 (For not even His brothers believed in Him.)

5 Not even his brothers believed in him.

Jesus At The Feast Of Tabernacles

6 Jesus saith to them, My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready.

6 So Jesus said to them, "My time is not yet here, but your time is always opportune.

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

6 Jesus told them, "My time has not yet arrived, but your time is always at hand.

6 Jesus told them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always here.

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

7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil.

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

7 The world cannot hate you, but it does hate Me because I testify about it-that its deeds are evil.

7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify against it that its actions are evil.

8 Go ye up to the feast; I go not up to this feast; for my time is not yet fully come.

8 "Go up to the feast yourselves; I do not go up to this feast because My time has not yet fully come."

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

8 Go up to the festival yourselves. I'm not going up to the festival yet, because My time has not yet fully come."

8 Go up to the festival yourselves. I am not going to this festival yet, because my time hasn't fully come yet."

9 Having said these things, he remained in Galilee.

9 Having said these things to them, He stayed in Galilee.

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

9 After He had said these things, He stayed in Galilee.

9 After saying this, he remained in Galilee.

Jesus At The Festival Of Tabernacles

10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not openly, but as it were in secret.

10 But when His brothers had gone up to the feast, then He Himself also went up, not publicly, but as if, in secret.

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

10 After His brothers had gone up to the festival, then He also went up, not openly but secretly.

10 But after his brothers had gone up to the festival, he went up himself, not openly but, as it were, in secret.

11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, Where is that man?

11 So the Jews were seeking Him at the feast and were saying, "Where is He?"

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

11 The Jews were looking for Him at the festival and saying, "Where is He?"

11 The Jewish leaders kept looking for him at the festival, asking, "Where is that man?"

12 And there was much debating among the multitude concerning him. Some said, He is a good man; others said, Nay, but he deceiveth the multitude.

12 There was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him; some were saying, "He is a good man"; others were saying, "No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray."

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.

12 And there was a lot of discussion about Him among the crowds. Some were saying, "He's a good man." Others were saying, "No, on the contrary, He's deceiving the people."

12 And there was a great deal of discussion about him among the crowds. Some were saying, "He is a good man," while others were saying, "No, he is deceiving the crowds!"

13 No one, however, spoke openly of him, for fear of the Jews.

13 Yet no one was speaking openly of Him for fear of the Jews.

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

13 Still, nobody was talking publicly about Him because they feared the Jews.

13 Nevertheless, no one would speak openly about him because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders.

Teaching In The Temple

14 But when it was now the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught.

14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and began to teach.

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

14 When the festival was already half over, Jesus went up into the temple complex and began to teach.

14 Halfway through the festival, Jesus went up to the Temple and began teaching.

15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

15 The Jews then were astonished, saying, "How has this man become learned, having never been educated?"

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

15 Then the Jews were amazed and said, "How does He know the Scriptures, since He hasn't been trained?"

15 The Jewish leaders were astonished and remarked, "How can this man be so educated when he has never gone to school?"

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

16 So Jesus answered them and said, "My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me.

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

16 Jesus answered them, "My teaching isn't Mine but is from the One who sent Me.

16 Jesus replied to them, "My teaching is not mine but comes from the one who sent me.

17 If any one is desirous to do his will, he will know concerning the teaching, whether it is from God, or whether I speak from myself.

17 "If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.

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.

17 If anyone wants to do His will, he will understand whether the teaching is from God or if I am speaking on My own.

17 If anyone wants to do his will, he'll know whether this teaching is from God or whether I'm speaking on my own.

18 He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory; but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, he is true, and in him is no unrighteousness.

18 "He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

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.

18 The one who speaks for himself seeks his own glory. But He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

18 The one who speaks on his own seeks his own praise. But the one who seeks the praise of him who sent him is genuine, and there's nothing false in him.

19 Hath not Moses given you the Law? and none of you keepeth the Law! Why do ye seek to kill me?

19 "Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law? Why do you seek to kill Me?"

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

19 Didn't Moses give you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law! Why do you want to kill Me?"

19 Moses gave you the Law, didn't he? Yet none of you is keeping the Law. Why are you trying to kill me?"

20 The multitude answered, Thou hast a demon! Who seeketh to kill thee?

20 The crowd answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill You?"

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

20 "You have a demon!" the crowd responded. "Who wants to kill You?"

20 The crowd answered, "You have a demon! Who is trying to kill you?"

21 Jesus answered and said to them, I have done one good work, and ye are all wondering.

21 Jesus answered them, "I did one deed, and you all marvel.

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

21 "I did one work, and you are all amazed," Jesus answered.

21 Jesus answered them, "I performed one action, and all of you are astonished.

22 Moses hath given you circumcision, (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath circumcise a man.

22 "For this reason Moses has given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man.

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.

22 "Consider this: Moses has given you circumcision-not that it comes from Moses but from the fathers-and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.

22 Moses gave you circumcision not that it is from Moses, but from the Patriarchs and so you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.

23 If a man receive circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are ye angry at me, because I have restored soundness to the whole body of a man on the sabbath?

23 "If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath?

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?

23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses won't be broken, are you angry at Me because I made a man entirely well on the Sabbath?

23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because I made a man perfectly well on the Sabbath?

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

24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

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

24 Stop judging according to outward appearances; rather judge according to righteous judgment."

24 Stop judging by appearances, but judge with righteous judgment!"

Is Jesus The Christ?

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

25 So some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, "Is this not the man whom they are seeking to kill?

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

25 Some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, "Isn't this the man they want to kill?

25 Then some of the people of Jerusalem began saying, "This is the man they are trying to kill, isn't it?

26 and see! he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers discovered certainly that this man is the Christ?

26 "Look, He is speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to Him. The rulers do not really know that this is the Christ, do they?

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

26 Yet, look! He's speaking publicly and they're saying nothing to Him. Can it be true that the authorities know He is the Messiah?

26 And look, he is speaking in public, and they are not saying anything to him! Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Messiah?

27 Still, as to this man, we know whence he is; but when the Christ cometh, no one knoweth whence he is.

27 "However, we know where this man is from; but whenever the Christ may come, no one knows where He is from."

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

27 But we know where this man is from. When the Messiah comes, nobody will know where He is from."

27 We know where this man comes from. But when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he comes from."

28 Jesus therefore cried aloud, teaching in the temple and saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am; and I have not come of myself, but there is in truth one who sent me, whom ye know not.

28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, "You both know Me and know where I am from; and I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.

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.

28 As He was teaching in the temple complex, Jesus cried out, "You know Me and you know where I am from. Yet I have not come on My own, but the One who sent Me is true. You don't know Him;

28 At this point Jesus, still teaching in the Temple, shouted, "So you know me and know where I've come from? I haven't come on my own accord. But the one who sent me is true, and he's the one you don't know.

29 I know him, because I am from him, and he hath sent me.

29 "I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me."

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

29 I know Him because I am from Him, and He sent Me."

29 I know him because I've come from him, and he sent me."

30 Therefore they sought to take him; but no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come.

30 So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.

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

30 Then they tried to seize Him. Yet no one laid a hand on Him because His hour had not yet come.

30 Then the Jewish leaders tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him because his hour had not yet come.

31 But of the multitude many believed in him, and said, When the Christ cometh, will he do more signs than these which this man doeth?

31 But many of the crowd believed in Him; and they were saying, "When the Christ comes, He will not perform more signs than those which this man has, will He?"

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?

31 However, many from the crowd believed in Him and said, "When the Messiah comes, He won't perform more signs than this man has done, will He?"

31 However, many in the crowd believed in him. They kept saying, "When the Messiah comes, he won't do more signs than this man has done, will he?"

Officers Sent To Arrest Jesus

32 The Pharisees heard the multitude thus debating concerning him; and the chief priest and the Pharisees sent officers to seize him.

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to seize Him.

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

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, so the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple police to arrest Him.

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd debating these things about him, so the high priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest Jesus.

33 Jesus therefore said, Yet a little while I am with you, and then I go to him that sent me.

33 Therefore Jesus said, "For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me.

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

33 Then Jesus said, "I am only with you for a short time. Then I'm going to the One who sent Me.

33 Then Jesus said, "I'll be with you only a little while longer, and then I'm going back to the one who sent me.

34 Ye will seek me and not find me; and where I am, ye cannot come.

34 "You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come."

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

34 You will look for Me, but you will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come."

34 You'll look for me but won't find me. And where I am, you cannot come."

35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, Whither will this man go, that we shall not find him? Will he go to the dispersed among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

35 The Jews then said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we will not find Him? He is not intending to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks, is He?

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?

35 Then the Jews said to one another, "Where does He intend to go so we won't find Him? He doesn't intend to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks, does He?

35 Then the Jewish leaders asked one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we won't be able to find him? Surely he's not going to the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks, is he?

36 What meaneth this which he said, Ye will seek me, and not find me; and where I am, ye cannot come?

36 "What is this statement that He said, 'You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come'?"

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?

36 What is this remark He made: 'You will look for Me, and you will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come' ?"

36 What does this statement mean that he said, "You'll look for me but won't find me,' and, "Where I am, you cannot come'?"

The Promise Of The Spirit

37 On the last day, which is the great day, of the feast, Jesus stood and cried aloud, saying, If any one thirst, let him come to me, and drink.

37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.

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.

37 On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, he should come to Me and drink!

37 On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and shouted, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink!

38 He that believeth in me, from within him, as the Scripture hath said, will flow rivers of living water.

38 "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'"

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

38 The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him."

38 The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."

39 But this he said of the Spirit, which those that believed in him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

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.)

39 He said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been received, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

39 Now he said this about the Spirit, whom those who were believing in him were to receive, because the Spirit was not yet present and Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Different Opinions About Jesus

40 Some of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is in truth the prophet. Others said, This is the Christ.

40 Some of the people therefore, when they heard these words, were saying, "This certainly is the Prophet."

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

40 When some from the crowd heard these words, they said, "This really is the Prophet!"

41 Others said, Doth the Christ then come from Galilee?

41 Others were saying, "This is the Christ." Still others were saying, "Surely the Christ is not going to come from Galilee, is He?

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

41 Others said, "This is the Messiah!" But some said, "Surely the Messiah doesn't come from Galilee, does He?

41 while others were saying, "This is the Messiah!"

42 Hath not the Scripture said, that the Christ cometh from the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the town where David was?

42 "Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?"

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

42 Doesn't the Scripture say that the Messiah comes from David's offspring and from the town of Bethlehem, where David once lived?"

42 But some were saying, "The Messiah doesn't come from Galilee, does he? Doesn't the Scripture say that the Messiah is from David's family and from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?"

43 So there was a division among the multitude because of him.

43 So a division occurred in the crowd because of Him.

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

43 So a division occurred among the crowd because of Him.

43 So there was a division in the crowd because of him.

44 And some of them wished to seize him; but no one laid hands on him.

44 Some of them wanted to seize Him, but no one laid hands on Him.

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

Debate Over Jesus' Claims

45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, Why did ye not bring him?

45 The officers then came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?"

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

45 Then the temple police came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why haven't you brought Him?"

45 Then the officers returned to the high priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why didn't you bring him?"

46 The officers answered, Never man spoke like this man.

46 The officers answered, "Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks."

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

46 The police answered, "No man ever spoke like this!"

46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like that!"

47 The Pharisees answered them, Have ye also been deceived?

47 The Pharisees then answered them, "You have not also been led astray, have you?

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

47 Then the Pharisees responded to them: "Are you fooled too?

47 Then the Pharisees replied to them, "You haven't been deceived, too, have you?

48 Hath any one of the rulers believed in him? or of the Pharisees?

48 "No one of the rulers or Pharisees has believed in Him, has he?

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

48 Have any of the rulers believed in Him? Or any of the Pharisees?

48 None of the authorities or Pharisees has believed in him, have they?

49 but this multitude that know not the Law are accursed.

49 "But this crowd which does not know the Law is accursed."

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

49 But this crowd, which doesn't know the law, is accursed!"

49 But this mob that does not know the Law they're under a curse!"

50 Nicodemus saith to them, being one of them,

50 Nicodemus (he who came to Him before, being one of them) said to them,

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

50 Nicodemus-the one who came to Him previously, being one of them-said to them,

50 One of their own, Nicodemus (the man who had previously met with Jesus), asked them,

51 Doth our law judge a man, unless it first hear from him, and know what he doeth?

51 "Our Law does not judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he is doing, does it?"

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

51 "Our law doesn't judge a man before it hears from him and knows what he's doing, does it?"

51 "Surely our Law does not condemn a person without first hearing from him and finding out what he is doing, does it?"

52 They answered and said to him, Art thou too from Galilee? Search and see that no prophet ariseth from Galilee.

52 They answered him, "You are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee."

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

52 "You aren't from Galilee too, are you?" they replied. "Investigate and you will see that no prophet arises from Galilee." [

52 They answered him, "You aren't from Galilee, too, are you? Search and see that no prophet comes from Galilee."

The Woman Caught In Adultery

53 {Joh 7:538:12: This passage is omitted as ungenuine by Tischendorf and most critical editors of the Greek Testament. It is found in some manuscripts, but not in the most ancient. It is, however, very generally regarded as a genuine relic of the teaching of Christ, though not forming a part of the fourth Gospel. I give it in the text of Tregelles, omitting the words which he incloses in brackets. Tregelles, however, does not suppose it to be genuine.} [And they went each to his house;

53 [Everyone went to his home.

53 And every man went unto his own house.

53 So each one went to his house.

53 Then all of them went to their own homes.
