7 And after these things Jesus was walking in Galilee; for he was not wishing in Judaea to be walking, because the Jews were seeking to slay him.
2 But the feast of the Jews was near, that of the pitching of tents.
3 His brethren therefore said unto him—Remove hence and withdraw into Judaea, that thy disciples also may view thy works which thou art doing.
4 For no one anything in secret doeth, and yet is seeking himself to be well-known. If these things thou art doing manifest thyself unto the world.
5 For not even his brethren were believing on him.
6 Jesus therefore saith unto them—My season not yet is here; But your season at any time is ready:
7 The world cannot hate you; But me it hateth, Because I bear witness concerning it That the works thereof are wicked.
8 Ye go up unto the feast: I not yet am coming up unto this feast, Because my season not yet hath fully come.
9 And these things having said unto them he was still abiding in Galilee.
10 But when his brethren had gone up unto the feast then he also went up,—not openly, but as it were in secret.
11 The Jews therefore were seeking him in the feast, and were saying—Where is that one?
12 and there was great murmuring about him among the multitudes: some indeed were saying—Good is he! [but] others were saying—Not so! but he is leading the multitude astray.
13 No one nevertheless was speaking openly about him, because of their fear of the Jews.
14 Presently however the feast being at its height Jesus went up unto the temple and was teaching.
15 The Jews therefore began to marvel, saying—How doth this one know letters, not having learned?
16 Jesus therefore answered them, and said—My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.
17 If any one intend his will to do He shall get to know concerning the teaching—Whether it is of God Or I from myself am speaking.
18 He that from himself doth speak His own glory is seeking: He that seeketh the glory of him that sent him The same is true, And injustice in him is there none.
19 Did not Moses give you the law? And yet not one of you doeth the law!—Why seek ye to slay me?
20 The multitude answered—A demon thou hast: Who is seeking to slay thee?
21 Jesus answered and said unto them—One work I did, and ye all are marvelling:
22 For this cause Moses hath given you circumcision,—Not that of Moses it is, but of the fathers;—And on Sabbath ye circumcise a man.
23 If circumcision a man receiveth on Sabbath, That the law of Moses may not be broken With me are ye bitter as gall, Because a whole man I made well on Sabbath?
24 Be not judging according to appearance, But just judgment be judging.
25 So then, some of them of Jerusalem were saying—Is not this he whom they are seeking to kill?
26 And yet see! with freedom of speech he is talking, And nothing unto him do they say:—Have the rulers perhaps come to know of a truth That this is the Christ?
27 But as for this one we know whence he is; The Christ however whensoever he shall come no one getteth to know whence he is.
28 Jesus therefore cried aloud in the temple, teaching and saying—Both me ye know, and ye know whence I am,—And yet of myself have I not come, But he is real who sent me, whom ye know not.
29 I know him, Because from him I am And he sent me forth.
30 They were seeking therefore to seize him; and yet no one laid on him his hand, because not yet had come his hour.
31 But from amongst the multitude many believed on him, and were saying—The Christ whensoever he cometh Greater signs will he do than those which this one did?
32 The Pharisees hearkened unto the multitude murmuring concerning him these things; and the High-priests and the Pharisees sent forth officers that they might seize him.
33 Jesus therefore said—Yet a little time I am with you, And withdraw unto him that sent me:
34 Ye shall seek me and not find me, And where I am ye cannot come.
35 The Jews therefore said unto themselves—Whither is this one about to go, That we shall not find him? Unto the dispersion of the Greeks is he about to go, And teach the Greeks?
36 What is this which he said: Ye shall seek me and not find me, And where I am ye cannot come?
37 Now on the last—the great—day of the feast Jesus was standing, and he cried aloud saying—If any man thirst Let him come unto me and drink:
38 He that believeth on me—just as said the Scripture,—Rivers from within him shall flow of living water.
39 Now this spake he concerning the Spirit which they who believed on him were about to receive; for not yet was there Spirit, because Jesus not yet was glorified!
40 Some from amongst the multitude therefore having hearkened unto these words were saying—This is in truth the prophet.
41 Others were saying—This is the Christ. But others were saying—Out of Galilee is the Christ to come?
42 Hath not the Scripture said: Of the seed of David, And from Bethlehem the village where David was Cometh the Christ?
43 A division therefore arose in the multitude, because of him.
44 Certain indeed from among them were wishing to seize him; but no one thrust upon him his hands.
45 So then the officers came unto the High-priests and Pharisees, and they said unto them—For what cause have ye not brought him?
46 The officers answered—Never man spake thus!
47 The Pharisees therefore answered them—Surely ye also have not been led astray?
48 Surely none of the rulers hath believed in him, Nor of the Pharisees?
49 But this multitude that take no note of the law are laid under a curse.
50 Nicodemus saith unto them—he that came unto him formerly, being one from among them—
51 Surely our law doth not judge the man, unless it hear first from him and get to know what he is doing?
52 They answered and said unto him—Surely thou also art not of Galilee? Search and see! that out of Galilee a prophet is not to arise.
