And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk? The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you; read more.
But, the Princely Leader of Life, ye slew: - whom, God, raised from among the dead, whereof, we, are witnesses. And, by the faith of his name, unto this man whom ye see and know, hath his name given strength, - yea, the faith which is through him, hath given unto him this perfect soundness, over against you all! And now brethren, I know that by way of ignorance ye acted, - just as even your rulers. Howbeit, God - what things he had before declared, through the mouth of all the prophets, for his Christ to suffer, - did thus fulfill! Repent ye, therefore, and turn, - unto the blotting out of your sins; to the end that in that case, there may come seasons of refreshing from the face of the Lord, And he may send forth him who had been fore-appointed for you - Christ Jesus: Unto whom, indeed, heaven must needs give welcome, until the times of the due establishment of all things, of which God hath spoken through the mouth of his holy age-past prophets. Moses, indeed, said - A prophet, unto you, shall the Lord God raise up among your brethren, like unto me: unto him, shall ye hearken respecting all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you. And it shall be - every soul, whatsoever, which shall not hearken unto that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people. But, indeed, all the prophets, - from Samuel and those following after, as many as have spoken, have even announced these days. Ye, are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God covenanted unto your fathers, saying unto Abraham - And, in thy seed, shall be blessed, all the families of the ground. Unto you first, God - having raised up his Servant - hath sent him forth, ready to bless you, when ye are turning away, each one, from your wickednesses.

If, we, this day, are to be examined for doing good to a sick man, - in whom, this, man hath been made well, Be it known unto you all, and unto all the people of Israel: that, in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, - whom, ye, crucified, whom, God, raised from among the dead, in him, doth, this man stand by, in your presence, whole. This, is the stone, set at nought by you the builders, which became the head of the corner; read more.
And there is in no one else, salvation, for, neither is there any other name, under heaven, which hath been set forth among men, in which we must needs be saved. And, looking at Peter's boldness of speech, and John's, and having discovered that they were unlettered and obscure men, they began to marvel, recognising them also, that they had been with Jesus;

But, Peter and John, answering, said unto them - Whether it be right in presence of God, unto you, to be hearkening, rather than unto God, judge! For, we, cannot but be speaking the things which we have seen and heard.

Now, when they heard this, they entered, under the dawn, into the temple, and began teaching. And the High-priest and they who were with him, arriving, called together the high-council, and all the senate of the sons of Israel; and sent off unto the prison, to have them brought.

But Peter and the Apostles, answering, said - It is needful to be yielding obedience unto God rather than unto men: - The God of our fathers, hath raised up Jesus, - whom, ye, got into your hands, suspending him upon a tree: - Him, as Princely-leader and Saviour, hath God exalted unto his right hand, - to give repentance unto Israel, and remission of sins. read more.
And, we, are witnesses of these things, - also the Holy Spirit, which God hath given unto them who are yielding obedience unto him.

So they cried aloud again, saying - Not this man, but Barabbas! Now, Barabbas, was, a robber.

The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you;


And, as he held fast Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them, in the portico which is called Solomon's, - greatly amazed. And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk?

For we reckon that a man is to be declared righteous by faith, apart from works of law. Or, is God the God, of Jews only, and not of the nations also? Yea! of the nations also: - If, at all events, God is one, who will declare righteous - the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcision through their faith. read more.
Do we then make, law, void through means of our faith? Far be it! On the contrary, law, we do establish!

What, then, shall we say? That, they of the nations, who were not in pursuit of righteousness, have laid hold of righteousness, - a righteousness, however, which is by faith;

And, the scripture, foreseeing, that, by faith, God would declare the nations righteous, fore-announced the good news unto Abraham, saying, All the nations shall be blessed in thee. So then, they who are of faith, are blessed with believing Abraham; For, as many as are of works of law, are, under a curse, - for it is written - Accursed, is everyone that continueth not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them. read more.
Moreover, that, in law, no one, is declared righteous with God, is evident, - because, The righteous one, by faith, shall live; And, the law, is not of faith, but - he that hath done them, shall live in them, Christ, hath redeemed, us, out of the curse of the law, having become, in our behalf, a curse; - because it is written - Cursed, is every one that hangeth upon a tree; - In order that, unto the nations, the blessing of Abraham, might come about in Jesus Christ, - in order that, the promise of the Spirit, we might receive through means of the faith.

For, by his favour, have ye been saved, through means of faith, and this hath come to pass - not from you, of God, the free-gift! Not from works, lest anyone should boast. His, in fact we are - his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus upon a footing of good works, which God prepared beforehand, that, therein, we might walk.

But faith is, of things hoped for, a confidence, of facts, a conviction, when they are not seen; For, thereby, well-attested were the ancients. By faith, we understand the ages to have been fitted together, by declaration of God, - to the end that, not out of things appearing, should that which is seen, have come into existence. read more.
By faith, a fuller sacrifice, did Abel, offer unto God, than Cain, - through which, he received witness that he was righteous, there being a witnessing upon his gifts, by God; and, through it, though he died, he yet is speaking. By faith, Enoch was translated, so as not to see death, and was not found, because that, God, had translated him; for, before the translation, he had received witness that he had become well-pleasing unto God; - But, apart from faith, it is impossible to be well-pleasing; for he that approacheth unto God - must needs have faith, that he is, and that, to them who seek him out, a rewarder he becometh. By faith, Noah, having received intimation concerning the things not yet seen, filled with reverence, prepared an ark to the saving of his house - through which he condemned the world, and, of the righteousness by way of faith, became heir. By faith, being called, Abraham obeyed - to come forth into a place he was destined to receive for an inheritance; and he came forth, not well knowing whither he was coming. By faith, he sojourned in the land of promise, as a foreign land, in tents, dwelling, along with Isaac and Jacob, the joint-heirs of the same promise; For he was awaiting the city having foundations, whose architect and builder is, God. By faith, even Sarah herself, received power for founding a seed, even beyond the season of life's prime, - seeing that, faithful, she reckoned, him that had promised;



For, not as having followed, cleverly devised stories, made we known unto you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but as having been made, spectators, of his majesty. For, when he received from God the Father honour and glory, a voice, being borne to him such as this, by the magnificent glory - My Son, the beloved, is, this, in whom, I, delight, Even this voice, we, heard, when, out of heaven, it was borne, we being, with him, in the holy mount.

When, therefore, he had gone out, Jesus saith - Just now, was, the Son of Man, glorified, and, God, was glorified in him; And, God, will glorify him, in himself, - and, straightway, glorify him.

These things, spake Jesus, and, lifting up his eyes unto heaven, said: - Father! The hour is come! Glorify thy Son, that, the Son, may glorify, thee, - Even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that, as touching whatsoever thou hast given him, he might give unto them, life age-abiding. And, this, is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. read more.
I, glorified thee on the earth, The work, finishing, which thou hast given me that I should do. And, now, glorify me - thou, Father! with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world's existence, with thee. I manifested thy name, unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: Thine, they were, and, to me, thou gavest them, and, thy word, have they kept: Now, have they come to know, That, all things, as many as thou gavest me, are, from thee; And, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth, - and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth. I, concerning them, make request: not, concerning the world, do I make request, but concerning them whom thou hast given me, because, thine, they are, - And, all my possessions, are, thine, and, thy possessions, mine, and I have been glorified in them. And, no longer, am I in the world, and, they, are, in the world, - and, I, unto thee, am coming. Holy Father! Keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, as, we. When I was with them, I, kept them in thy name which thou hast given me, - And I kept watch, and, none from among them, went the destruction, - save the son of destruction, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled. But, now, unto thee, am I coming; and, these things, am I speaking in the world, that they may have my own joy fulfilled in themselves. I, have given them thy word, and, the world, hated them, because they are not of the world - even as, I, am not of the world. I request not, that thou wouldst take them out of the world, but that thou wouldst keep them out of the evil: Of the world, they are not, even as, I, am not of the world. Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word, is, truth: Even as thou didst send me forth into the world, I also, send them forth into the world; And, on their behalf, I, hallow myself, that, they also, may have become hallowed in truth. Not however concerning these alone, do I make request, but, concerning them also who believe, through their word, on me: That they, all, may be, one, - even as, thou, Father, in me, and, I, in thee, - that, they also, in us, may be; - that, the world, may believe that, thou, didst send me forth. And, I, the glory which thou hast given to me, have given to them, that they may be one, even as, we, are, one. - I, in them and, thou, in me; That they may have been perfected into, one, - That the world may get to know, that, thou, didst send me forth, and didst love them even as thou didst love, me. Father! As touching that which thou hast given me, I desire - That, where, I, am, they also, may be, with me, that they may behold my own glory which thou hast given me, - because thou lovedst me, before the foundation of the world.

The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him;

Knowing that, Not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, have ye been redeemed from your unmeaning behaviour paternally handed down, But with precious blood, as of a lamb, unblemished and unspotted, of an Anointed One, - Foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but made manifest at a last stage of the times, for the sake of you read more.
who, through him, are faithful towards God, - Who raised him from among the dead, and glory to him gave, So that your faith and hope are directed towards God:


The Almighty, whom we have not fully found out, is great in vigour, - Neither, justice nor abounding righteousness, will he weaken.


The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you;

Now, therefore, O our God - the GOD great, mighty, and fearful - keeping the covenant and the lovingkindness, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, which hath come upon us - on our kings, on our rulers, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all thy people, - from the days of the kings of Assyria, until this day. But, thou, art righteous, as to all that hath fallen upon us, - for, faithfulness, hast thou wrought, whereas, we, have been lawless;

Yahweh, the Righteous One, is in her midst, he dealeth not perversely, - Morning by morning, his justice, bringeth he forth the light, He is not found lacking, but the perverse man knoweth no shame.




That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we for ourselves gazed upon, and our hands did handle, concerning the Word of Life, - And, the Life, was made manifest, and we have seen, and are bearing witness, and announcing unto you, the Age-abiding Life, which, indeed, was with the Father, and was made manifest unto us; That which we have seen and heard, are we announcing, even unto you, in order that, ye too, may have fellowship with us, and, our own fellowship also, may be with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.



to love Yahweh thy God, to hearken unto his voice, and to cleave unto him, - for, he, is thy life, and thy length of days, that thou mayest abide upon the soil which Yahweh sware to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob, to give unto them.

Our fathers, did eat, the manna, in the desert, - just as it is written: Bread out of heaven, he gave them to eat. Jesus said unto them - Verily, verily, I say unto you: Not Moses, gave you the bread out of heaven; but, my Father, giveth you the real bread out of heaven. For, the bread of God, is that which is coming down out of heaven, and giving, life, unto the world. read more.
They said, therefore, unto him - Sir! Evermore, give us this bread. Jesus said unto them - I, am the bread of life: he that cometh unto me, in nowise shall hunger, and, he that believeth on me, in nowise shall thirst, any more.

The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you; But, the Princely Leader of Life, ye slew: - whom, God, raised from among the dead, whereof, we, are witnesses.


And, this, she continued to do for many days. But Paul, worn out, and turning unto the spirit, said - I charge thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to come out from her. And it came out the same hour.

But Peter said - Silver and gold, have none, but, what I have, the same, unto thee do give: - In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, Walk!

And, by the faith of his name, unto this man whom ye see and know, hath his name given strength, - yea, the faith which is through him, hath given unto him this perfect soundness, over against you all!

Be it known unto you all, and unto all the people of Israel: that, in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, - whom, ye, crucified, whom, God, raised from among the dead, in him, doth, this man stand by, in your presence, whole.


And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk? The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him;

And Peter said unto him - Aeneas! Jesus Christ healeth thee! Arise, and smooth thy bed for thyself. And, straightway, he arose. And all who dwelt in Lydda and Saron, saw him, - and, they, turned unto the Lord.


For they were gathered together, of a truth, in this city, against thy holy servant Jesus, whom thou hadst anointed, - both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with them of the nations, and peoples of Israel; -

I charge thee, before God, who engendereth life in all things, and Christ Jesus, who, before Pontius Pilate, witnessed the noble confession,

The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him;

So they lead Jesus from Caiaphas unto the judgment-hall. Now it was early; and, they themselves, entered not into the judgment-hall, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the passover. Pilate, therefore, went forth outside unto them, and saith, - What accusation bring ye against this man? They answered and said unto him - If this one had not been doing, mischief, unto thee, had we not delivered him up. read more.
Pilate, therefore, said unto them - Ye, take him, and, according to your law, judge ye him. The Jews said unto him - Unto us, it is not allowed, to kill anyone! - that, the word of Jesus, might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying, by what manner of death, he was about to die. Pilate, therefore, entered again into the judgment-hall; and addressed Jesus, and said unto him - Art, thou, the king of the Jews? Jesus answered - Of thyself, art, thou, this thing saying; or did, others, tell thee concerning me? Pilate answered - Am, I, a Jew? Thine own nation, and the High-priests, delivered thee up, unto me! What, hast thou done? Jesus answered - My kingdom, is not of this world: If, of this world, had been my kingdom, mine own officers, would have been striving, that I should not be delivered up unto the Jews: but, now, my kingdom, is not from hence. Pilate, therefore, said unto him - And yet, thou, art, not a king? Jesus answered - Thou, sayest, that, a king, I am: I, for this, have been born, and, for this, have come into the world, - that I may bear witness unto the truth: Every one who is of the truth, hearkeneth unto my voice. Pilate saith unto him - What, is truth? And, this saying, again, went he out to the Jews, and saith unto them, - I, find in him, not a single fault. Howbeit ye have, a custom, that, some one, I should release unto you, during the passover: - Are ye minded, then, that I release unto you the king of the Jews? So they cried aloud again, saying - Not this man, but Barabbas! Now, Barabbas, was, a robber.

And, though no single cause of death they found, yet claimed they of Pilate that he should be slain.


And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk?

But, the Princely Leader of Life, ye slew: - whom, God, raised from among the dead, whereof, we, are witnesses. And, by the faith of his name, unto this man whom ye see and know, hath his name given strength, - yea, the faith which is through him, hath given unto him this perfect soundness, over against you all! And now brethren, I know that by way of ignorance ye acted, - just as even your rulers. Howbeit, God - what things he had before declared, through the mouth of all the prophets, for his Christ to suffer, - did thus fulfill! Repent ye, therefore, and turn, - unto the blotting out of your sins; to the end that in that case, there may come seasons of refreshing from the face of the Lord, And he may send forth him who had been fore-appointed for you - Christ Jesus: Unto whom, indeed, heaven must needs give welcome, until the times of the due establishment of all things, of which God hath spoken through the mouth of his holy age-past prophets. Moses, indeed, said - A prophet, unto you, shall the Lord God raise up among your brethren, like unto me: unto him, shall ye hearken respecting all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you. And it shall be - every soul, whatsoever, which shall not hearken unto that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people. But, indeed, all the prophets, - from Samuel and those following after, as many as have spoken, have even announced these days. Ye, are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God covenanted unto your fathers, saying unto Abraham - And, in thy seed, shall be blessed, all the families of the ground. Unto you first, God - having raised up his Servant - hath sent him forth, ready to bless you, when ye are turning away, each one, from your wickednesses.

But, taking his stand, Peter with the eleven lifted up his voice, and sounded out unto them - Ye men of Judaea, and all ye who are sojourning in Jerusalem! Let, this, unto you be known, and give ear unto my declarations; - For not, as, ye, suppose, are these men drunken, for it is the third hour of the day; - But this is that which hath been spoken through the prophet Joel - read more.
And it shall be, in the last days saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and, your young men, visions shall see and, your elders, in dreams shall dream, - And, even upon my men-servants and upon my maid-servants in those days, will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy; And I will set forth wonders in the heaven above, and signs upon the earth beneath, - blood and fire and vapour of smoke: The sun, shall be turned into darkness and, the moon, into blood, - before the coming of the day of the Lord, the great and manifest day ; And it shall be - Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. Ye men of Israel! hear these words: - Jesus the Nazarene, a man pointed out of God unto you by mighty works and wonders and signs, which God did through him in your midst, just as ye yourselves know, The same, by the marked out counsel and foreknowledge of God given up, through the hands of lawless men, suspending, ye slew, Whom, God, raised up, loosing the pangs of death, inasmuch as it was, not possible, for him to continue held fast by it. For, David, saith concerning him - I foresaw the Lord before me continually, because he is, on my right hand, that I may not be shaken; For this reason, was my heart made glad and my tongue exulted, - ye further, even my flesh, shall encamp on hope: Because thou wilt not abandon my soul unto hades, neither wilt thou give thy man of lovingkindness to see corruption; Thou madest known unto me paths of life, thou wilt make me full of gladness with thy countenance. Brethren! it is, allowable, to say with freedom of speech unto you, concerning the patriarch David, - that he both died and was buried, and, his tomb, is among us until this day. Being then, a prophet, and knowing that, with an oath, God had sworn unto him, of the fruit of his loins, to seat on his throne, With foresight, spake he concerning the resurrection of the Christ - that neither was he abandoned unto hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. The same Jesus, hath God raised up, whereof, all we, are witnesses! By the right hand of God, therefore, having been exalted, also, the promise of the Holy Spirit, having received from the Father, He hath poured out this which, yourselves, do see and hear. For, David, hath not ascended into the heavens; but he saith, himself, - Said the Lord unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, Assuredly, then, let all the house of Israel know: that, both Lord and Christ, hath God made him, even the same Jesus whom, ye, crucified! And, when they heard this, they were pricked to the heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles - What are we to do, brethren? And Peter said unto them - Repent ye, and let each one of you be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, into the remission of your sins, - and ye shall receive the free-gift of the Holy Spirit; For, unto you, is the promise, and unto your children, - and unto all them who are afar off: as many soever as the Lord our God shall call unto him. And, with many different words, bare he frail witness, and went on exhorting them saying - Be saved from this perverse generation!


Now, Peter and John, were going up into the temple, for the hour of prayer - the ninth; And, a certain man, who had been, lame from his mother's womb, was being carried, - whom they used to lay daily at the door of the temple - the door called Beautiful, that he might ask alms of them who were entering into the temple: Who, seeing Peter and John about to enter into the temple, was requesting to receive, an alms. read more.
But Peter looking steadfastly at him - with John - said: Look on us! And, he, gave heed unto them, expecting to receive, something from them. But Peter said - Silver and gold, have none, but, what I have, the same, unto thee do give: - In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, Walk! And, laying hold of him by the right hand, he raised him up; and, instantly, were his feet and ankles strengthened; - And, leaping forward, he stood and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God. And all the people saw him, walking and praising God; And they began to recognise him, that, the same, was he who, for the alms, used to sit at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; - and they were filled with amazement and transport at what had happened unto him. And, as he held fast Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them, in the portico which is called Solomon's, - greatly amazed. And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk? The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you; But, the Princely Leader of Life, ye slew: - whom, God, raised from among the dead, whereof, we, are witnesses. And, by the faith of his name, unto this man whom ye see and know, hath his name given strength, - yea, the faith which is through him, hath given unto him this perfect soundness, over against you all!


That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we for ourselves gazed upon, and our hands did handle, concerning the Word of Life, - And, the Life, was made manifest, and we have seen, and are bearing witness, and announcing unto you, the Age-abiding Life, which, indeed, was with the Father, and was made manifest unto us; That which we have seen and heard, are we announcing, even unto you, in order that, ye too, may have fellowship with us, and, our own fellowship also, may be with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

But Peter and the Apostles, answering, said - It is needful to be yielding obedience unto God rather than unto men: - The God of our fathers, hath raised up Jesus, - whom, ye, got into your hands, suspending him upon a tree: - Him, as Princely-leader and Saviour, hath God exalted unto his right hand, - to give repentance unto Israel, and remission of sins. read more.
And, we, are witnesses of these things, - also the Holy Spirit, which God hath given unto them who are yielding obedience unto him.

Ye yourselves, know what hath come to pass throughout the whole of Judaea, beginning from Galilee, after the immersion which John proclaimed, respecting Jesus who was of Nazareth: - How God anointed him with Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the adversary, because, God, was with him. We also, are witnesses of all things which he did, both in the country of the Jews and Jerusalem; whom they even slew by suspending upon a tree; - read more.
The same, God raised up on the third day, and gave him to become, manifest, Not unto all the people, but unto witnesses who had been fore-appointed by God, unto us, who, indeed, did eat and drink with him after his rising from among the dead. And he charged us to proclaim unto the people, and bear full witness, that - This, is he that hath been marked out by God to be judge of living and dead. Unto the same, do all the prophets bear witness, That, remission of sins, is to be received through his name, by every one that believeth on him.

There arose a man, sent from God, whose name was, John: The same, came, for a witness, That he might bear witness, concerning the light, that, all, might believe, through him. He, was not the light, - but, that he might bear witness concerning the light, read more.
It, was - The real light that enlighteneth every man - Coming into the world. In the world, he was, and, the world, through him, came into existence, and, the world, knew him not. Into his own possessions, he came, and, his own people, received him not home. But, as many as did receive him, he gave, unto them, authority, children of God, to become, - unto them who were believing on his name: Who - not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but - of God, were born. And, the Word, became, flesh, and pitched his tent among us, and we gazed upon his glory, - a glory, as an Only-begotten from his Father. Full of favour and truth. (John beareth witness concerning him, and hath cried aloud, saying - the same, was he that said - He who, after me, was coming, before me, hath advanced; because, my Chief, was he.)

That, all, may honour the Son, just as they honour the Father: he that doth not honour the Son, doth not, in fact, honour the Father who sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you: He that heareth, my word, and believeth in him that sent me, hath life age-abiding, and, into judgment, cometh not, but hath passed over, out of death into life. Verily, verily, I say unto you: There cometh an hour, and now is, when, the dead, shall hearken unto the voice of the Son of God, and, they who have hearkened, shall live. read more.
For, just as, the Father, hath life, in himself, in like manner, unto the Son also, hath he given, life, to have, in himself; And, authority, hath he given him, to be executing, judgment, - because, Son of Man, is he! Do not be marvelling at this: because there come an hour, in which, all they in the tombs, shall hearken unto his voice, and shall come forth, - they who, the good things, have done, unto a resurrection, of life; but, they who the corrupt things, have practised, unto a resurrection, of judgment. I, cannot be doing, of myself, a single thing, - Just as I hear, I judge; and, my judging, is, just, - because I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me. If, I, bear witness, concerning myself, my witness, is not, true. Another, it is, who beareth witness concerning me, - and I know that, true, is the witness which he witnesseth concerning me. Ye, have sent forth unto John, - and he hath borne witness to the truth: - I, however, not from man, my witness, receive; but, these things, I say, that, ye, may be saved: - He, was the burning and shining lamp, and, ye, were willing to exult, for an hour, in his light. But, I, have, as my witness, something greater than John's; for, the works which the Father hath given me, that I should complete them, - the works themselves which I am doing, bear witness concerning me, that, the Father, hath sent me. And so, the Father who sent me, he, hath borne witness concerning me; Neither, a sound of him, at any time, have ye heard, nor, a form of him, have ye seen; And, his word, ye have not, within you abiding - because, as touching him whom, he, sent, in him, ye, believe not. Ye search the Scriptures, because, ye, think, by them, to have, life age-abiding; and, those Scriptures , are they which bear witness concerning me: And yet ye choose not to come unto me, that, life, ye may have. Glory from men, am I not receiving; - But I have taken knowledge of you, that, the love of God, ye have not, in yourselves: - I, have come, in the name of my Father, - and ye are not receiving me: If, another, shall come in his own name, him, ye will receive! How can, ye, believe, - Glory from one another, receiving; and, the glory which is from the only God, are not seeking? Do not think that, I, will accuse you unto the Father: There, is, who accuseth you, even, Moses, - on whom, ye, have set your hope. For, if ye had been believing, in Moses, ye would, in that case, have been believing, in me: for, concerning me, he wrote. But, if, in his writings, ye are not believing, how, in my sayings, will ye believe?

For, I, - Yahweh, am, Thy God, The Holy One of Israel Ready to save thee, - I have given, as thy ransom, Egypt, Ethiopia and Seba, in thy stead. Because thou art precious in mine eyes, art honoured And, I, love thee, - And will give mankind, in thy stead, Yea, peoples, for thy life, Do not fear for, with thee, I am, - From the East, will I bring in thy seed, And, from the West, will I gather thee: read more.
I will say to the North Give up! And to the South Do not withhold! Bring in My sons from far, and My daughters from the end of the earth; Every one who is called by my Name, Whom for mine own glory, I have created - formed - yea, made! Bring forth A blind people that have, eyes, and A deaf, that have, ears. All the nations, are gathered together Yea there is an assembling of peoples, Who among them, can tell this, And things in advance, can let us hear? Let them set forth their witnesses that they may get their right, Or let them hear, and say Truth! Ye, are my witnesses Declareth Yahweh, And my Servant, whom I have chosen, - That ye may take note - and believe me, And perceive that, I, am He, Before me, was not formed a GOD, Nor after me, shall one come into being: I - I, am Yahweh, - And there is none besides me ready to save: I, have told - and will save, and make known, That there is among you no strange one; And, ye, are my witnesses, Declareth Yahweh That, I, am GOD.

Now, then - hear, O Jacob, my Servant, - and Israel whom I have chosen: Thus, saith Yahweh - Who made thee and formed thee from birth, Who helpeth thee: Do not fear O my Servant Jacob, and Jeshurun whom I have chosen; For I will pour, Water upon the thirsty soil, and Floods upon the dry ground, - I will pour My spirit upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thine offspring; read more.
So will they spring up among the grass, As willows by the water-courses: This one, will say Yahweh's, am I, and That one, will call himself by the name of Jacob, and Yonder one will write on his hand - Yahweh's, And after the name of Israel, will one entitle himself. Thus saith Yahweh - King of Israel, Even his Redeemer, Yahweh of hosts, - I, am, First, and, I, Last, And besides me, there is no God. Who then, like me, can call, and declare it, and order it, for me, Seeing that I appointed an age-abiding people, - Or things yet to be, and that shall come to pass, Let them declare on their part. Do not ye dread, nor yet be alarmed, Have I not from olden time, told thee and declared? So that, ye, are my witnesses, - Whether there is a GOD besides me? Or is no Rock - I knew of none!

They, therefore, having come together, began to question him, saying - Lord! art thou at this time duly establishing the kingdom unto Israel? He said unto them - It is not yours to get to know times or seasons which the Father hath put in his own authority; But ye shall receive power when the Holy Spirit cometh upon you, and ye shall be my witnesses, both in Jerusalem and inall Judaea and Samaria and as far as the uttermost part of the land. read more.
And having said these things, as they were beholding, he was lifted up, and a cloud caught him away from their eyes. And, while they were looking steadfastly into heaven as he was going his way, then lo! two men had taken their stand beside them, in white garments, - Who also said - Men of Galilee! why stand ye looking into heaven? This Jesus who hath been taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, in like manner as ye yourselves have gazed upon him going into heaven.

And, as he held fast Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them, in the portico which is called Solomon's, - greatly amazed. And Peter, seeing it, made answer unto the people: - Ye men of Israel! Why marvel ye at this man? Or, upon us, why are ye intently looking, as though, by our own power or godliness, we had made him walk? The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, - the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus: - whom, ye, indeed, delivered up and denied to Pilate's, face when he had adjudged to release him; read more.
But, ye, denied, the Holy and Righteous One, and claimed a man that was a murderer to be granted you; But, the Princely Leader of Life, ye slew: - whom, God, raised from among the dead, whereof, we, are witnesses.

Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, unto them who have obtained, equally precious, faith, with us, in the righteousness of our God, and Saviour Jesus Christ, Favour unto you, and peace, be multiplied, in the personal knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; - As, all things, suited for life and godliness his divine power, unto us, hath given, through the personal knowledge of him that hath called us through glory and excellence, - read more.
Through which, his precious, and very great, promises, have, unto us, been given, in order that, through these, ye might become sharers in a divine nature - escaping the corruption that is in the world by coveting. And, for this very reason also - adding, on your part, all diligence, supply, in your faith, excellence, and, in your excellence, knowledge, And, in your knowledge, self-control, and, in your self-control, endurance, and, in your endurance, godliness, And, in your godliness, brotherly affection, and, in your brotherly affection, love. These things, unto you, belonging and abounding, neither idle nor unfruitful, constitute you, regarding the personal knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; For, he to whom these things are not present, is, blind, seeing only what is near, having come, to forget, his purification from his old sins. Wherefore, all the more, brethren, give diligence to be making, firm, your calling and election; for, these things, doing, in nowise shall ye stumble at any time, For, thus, shall richly be further supplied unto you - the entrance into the age-abiding kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Wherefore, I shall be certain to be, always, putting you in remembrance concerning these things, - although, indeed, ye know them, and have become confirmed in the present truth; Right, nevertheless, I account it - as long as I am in this tent, to be stirring you up by putting you in remembrance, Knowing that, speedy, is the putting off of my tent - even as, our Lord Jesus Christ also, made clear to me: Yea, I will give diligence also, that, at every time, ye may be able, after my own departure, to be keeping up the remembrance of, these very things. For, not as having followed, cleverly devised stories, made we known unto you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but as having been made, spectators, of his majesty.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, to point out unto his servants the things which must needs come to pass with speed, - and he shewed them by signs, sending through his messenger, unto his servant John; who bare witness as to the word of God, and the witness of Jesus Christ, - whatsoever things he saw.
