But they were filled with fury, and deliberated with each other what they might do to Jesus.

But his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy behind him, saying, We do not want this man to reign over us.



When therefore the chief priests and the subordinates saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify, crucify him! Pilate says to them, Ye take ye him and crucify, for I find no cause in him.


And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you.

I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own, but because ye are not of the world (instead I chose you out of the world), because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, A bondman is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would not have had sin, but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause. But when the helper comes whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.

But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you. read more.
And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me because he will receive from me, and will report to you. All things, as many as the Father has are mine. Because of this I said that he takes from me, and will report to you.



They reward me evil for good, [to] the bereaving of my soul.

They also who render evil for good are adversaries to me, because I follow the thing that is good.


He who rewards evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.

Shall evil be recompensed for good? For they have dug a pit for my soul. Remember how I stood before thee to speak good for them, to turn away thy wrath from them.

Jesus answered them, I have shown you many good works from my Father. Because of them, which work do ye stone me?

I am LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other gods before me. Thou shall not make to thee a graven image, nor any likeness [of anything] that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. read more.
Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I, LORD thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of those who hate me,

Now after these things the Lord also appointed seventy other men, and sent them by twos before his face into every city and place where he himself was going to come. Therefore he said to them, The harvest indeed is plentiful, but the workmen are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth workmen into his harvest. Go ye. Behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry no bag, no pouch, no shoes, and greet no man on the way. And into whatever house ye enter, first say, Peace to this house. And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him, and if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house eating and drinking from their things, for the workman is worthy of his wage. Do not depart from house to house. And into whatever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat the things that are set before you. And heal the weak in it, and say to them, The kingdom of God has come near to you. But into whatever city ye enter, and they will not receive you, after departing into the thoroughfares if it, say, Even the dust that clings on us from your city, we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know ye this, that the kingdom of God has come near to you. I say to you, that it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe to thee, Chorazin! Woe to thee, Bethsaida! Because if the mighty works were done in Tyre and Sidon, which were done in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which was exalted to the sky, will be thrust down to Hades. He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.

Know therefore that LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with those who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations, and repays those who hate him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack to him who hates him. He will repay him to his face.

For LORD will judge his people, and regrets for his servants, when he sees that [their] power is gone, and there is none [remaining], shut up or left at large. And he will say, Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge, which ate the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the wine of their drink-offering? Let them rise up and help you, let them be your protection. read more.
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me. I kill, and I make alive. I wound, and I heal. And there is none that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, As I live forever, if I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to my adversaries, and will recompense those who hate me.

Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, nor will he uphold the evil-doers. He will yet fill thy mouth with laughter, and thy lips with shouting. Those who hate thee shall be clothed with shame, and the tent of the wicked shall be no more.

For the king trusts in LORD. And through the loving kindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. Thy hand will find out all thine enemies. Thy right hand will find out those who hate thee. Thou will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger. LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. read more.
Thou will destroy their fruit from the earth, and their seed from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against thee. They conceived a device which they are not able to perform. For thou will make them turn their back. Thou will make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.

O God, keep thou not silence. Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult, and those who hate thee have lifted up the head. They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult together against thy hidden ones. read more.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent. They make a covenant against thee: the tents of Edom, and the Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes, Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre, Assyria also is joined with them; they have helped the sons of Lot. Selah. Do thou to them as to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon, who perished at Endor, who became as dung for the earth. Make their ranking men like Oreb and Zeeb, yea, all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God. O my God, make them like the whirling dust, as stubble before the wind, as the fire that burns the forest, and as the flame that sets the mountains on fire. So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy storm. Fill their faces with confusion, that they may seek thy name, O LORD. Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever. Yea, let them be confounded and perish,

Jesus therefore says to them, My time is not yet here, but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify about it, that its works are evil. Go ye up to this feast. I am not yet going to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled.

When therefore the chief priests and the subordinates saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify, crucify him! Pilate says to them, Ye take ye him and crucify, for I find no cause in him.




Let not those who are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me. Neither let them wink with the eye who hate me without a cause.

If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would not have had sin, but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause.



Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head. Those who would cut me off, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty. That which I took not away I have to restore.


This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth.

And likewise also the Spirit helps our weaknesses, for we know not what we would pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. And he who searches the hearts knows what is the mentality of the Spirit, because he appeals to God for the sanctified. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to purpose.

But as it is written, What an eye has not seen, and an ear has not heard, and have not arisen in a heart of a man, are things that God prepared for those who love him. But God disclosed it to us through his Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

I have spoken these things to you, so that ye may not be caused to stumble. They will make you excommunicated from the synagogues. But the hour comes that every man who kills you will presume to be offering service to God. And they will do these things, because they have not known the Father nor me. read more.
But I have told you these things, so that when the hour comes, ye may remember that I told you of them. But I did not tell you these things from the beginning because I was with you. But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you. And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me because he will receive from me, and will report to you.

And we have such confidence toward God through Christ, not that we are sufficient of ourselves to reckon anything as from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us qualified helpers of a new covenant, not of a document, but of a spirit, for the document kills but the spirit makes alive.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye murdered, having hung on a tree. God exalted this man with his right hand, a Pathfinder and a Savior to give repentance to Israel and remission of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

And now behold, I, bound in the spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me in it, except that the Holy Spirit testifies from city to city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me.

For this reason I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles, since indeed ye heard of the administration of the grace of God, which was given to me for you, that according to revelation he made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. read more.
With which reading ye can recognize my understanding in the mystery of the Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by Spirit to his holy apostles and prophets.

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, after indeed foretelling,

And who is he who overcomes the world, if not he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth. Because those who testify are three:

And those who heard lifted up a voice to God with one accord, and said, Thou Master, the God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all things in them.

But Saul, still breathing threat and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, after going to the high priest, he requested letters from him for Damascus, to the synagogues, so that if he found any who were of the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. And on going, it came to pass for him to approach Damascus. And suddenly there shone around him a light out of heaven. read more.
And after falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me? And he said, Who are thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute.

The man departed and reported to the Jews that Jesus is the man who made him well. And because of this the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill him, because he did these things on a Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now and I work. read more.
Because of this therefore the Jews sought even more to kill him, because not only did he relax the Sabbath, but also he called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.

And there happened to me, while going and approaching Damascus about noon, suddenly to flash forth from heaven a great light around me. And I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me? And I answered, Who are thou, Lord? And he said to me, I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom thou persecute.


I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own, but because ye are not of the world (instead I chose you out of the world), because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, A bondman is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would not have had sin, but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause. But when the helper comes whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me. And ye also testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you. read more.
Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more, but ye see me. Because I live, ye will also live.

But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you. read more.
And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye murdered, having hung on a tree. God exalted this man with his right hand, a Pathfinder and a Savior to give repentance to Israel and remission of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

And now behold, I, bound in the spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me in it, except that the Holy Spirit testifies from city to city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me.

For this reason I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles, since indeed ye heard of the administration of the grace of God, which was given to me for you, that according to revelation he made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. read more.
With which reading ye can recognize my understanding in the mystery of the Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by Spirit to his holy apostles and prophets.

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, after indeed foretelling,

And who is he who overcomes the world, if not he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth. Because those who testify are three:

Jesus therefore says to them, My time is not yet here, but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify about it, that its works are evil. Go ye up to this feast. I am not yet going to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled.
