He aseendeth into heaven.

47 And that repentance and ^ remission of
sins should be preached in his name ■■ among
all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.*

48 And "ye are witnesses of these
things.

49 IF ' And behold, I send the promise of
my Father upon you : but tarry ye in .the city
of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power
from on high."

50 1 And he led them out » as far as to
Bethany : and he lifted up his hands, and
blessed them.

51 ^ And it came to pass, while he blessed
them, he was parted from them, and carried
up into heaven.

praising and blessing God. Amen.

13 p Which were born, not of blood, nor

mail, but of God.

14 lAnd the Word "^ was made « flesh,
and dwelt among us, (and * we beheld his
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) "full of grace and truth.

saying. This was he of whom I spake, ^ He

that sent ug. What sayest thou of thy-
self ?

23 ^ He said, I am the voice of one crying
in the wilderness, Make straight the way of
the Lord, as • said the prophet Esaias.

24 And they which were sent were of the
Pharisees.

25* And they asked him, and said unto
him. Why baptizest thou then, if thou be
not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that pro-
phet?

26 John answered them, saying, ""I bap-
tize with water: "bul; there standeth one
among you, whom ye know not :

27 °He it is, who coming after me, is
preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I
am not worthy to unloose.

28 These things were done Pin Bethabara
beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

29 IT The next dayJohnseeth Jesus coming
uirto him, and saith. Behold *i the Lamb of
God, ' which || taketh away the sin of the
world !

30 ^This is he of whom I said, After me
cometh a man which is preferred before me ;
for he was before me.

31 And I knew him not : but that he
should be made manifest to Israel, * there-
fore am I come baptizing with water.

32 "And John bare record, saying, I saw
the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove,
and it abode upon him.

33 And I knew him not: but he that sent
me to baptize with water, the same said unto
me. Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit de-
scending and remaining on him, * the same
is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

34 And I saw and bare record, that this
is the Son of God.

35 II Again the next day after, John stood,
and two of his disciples ;

36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked,
he saith, y Behold the Lamb of God!

37 And the two disciples heard him speak,
and they followed Jesus.

38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them fol-
lowing, q,nd saith unto them. What seek ye ?
They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say,
being interpreted. Master,) where j] dwellest
thou?

39 He saith unto them. Come and see.
They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode
with him that day : for it was || about the
tenth hour.

and saith of him. Behold •" an Israelite in-

48 Nathanael saith unto him. Whence
knowest thou me ? Jesus answered and said
unto him. Before that- Philip called thee,

thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him,
Rabbi, ' thou art the Son of God ;. thou art
^ the King of Israel.

50 Jesus answered and said unto him.
Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under

greater things than these.

1 Christ turneth water into wine, 12 departeth into Ca-
pernaum, and to Jerusalem, 14 where he puryeth the

death and resurrection. 23 Many believed because of
his miracles, but he would not trust himself with them.

AND the third day there was a marriage
.in^Cana of Galilee; and the mother of
Jesus was there.

2 And both Jesus was called, and his dis-
ciples, to the marriage.

3 And when they wanted wine, the mo-

apiece.

7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the water-
pots with water. And they filled them up to
the brim.

8 And he saith unto them, Draw out npw,
and bear unto the governor of the feast.
And they bare it.

9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted
''the water that was made wine, and knew
•not whence it was, (but the servants which
drew the water knew,) the governor of the
feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him. Every man at the
beginning doth set forth good wine ; and
wheo men have well drunk, then that which
is worse : but thou hast kept the good wine
until now.

11 This'beginning of miracles did Jesus in
Cana of Galilee, e and manifested forth his
glory; and his disciples believed on him.

12 IT After this he went down to Caper-
naum, he, and his mother, and ''his brethren,
and his disciples ; and they continued there
not many days.

13 IT' And the Jews' passover was at hand,
and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,

14 ^ And found in the temple those that
sold oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the
changers of money, sitting :

15 And when he had made a scourge of
small cords, he drove them all out of the
temple, and the sheep, and the oxen ; and
poured out the changers' money, and over-
threw the tables ;

16 And said unto them that sold doves.
Take these things hence : make not 'my Fa-
ther's house ailhouse of merchandise.

17 And his disciples remembered that it
was written, ™ The zeal of thine house hath
eaten me up.

J 18 IF Then answered the Jews, and said
unto him, "What sign shewest thou unto us,
seeing that thou doest these things ?

19 Jesus answered and said unto them,
° Destroy this temple, and in three days I
will raise it up.

20 Then said the Jews, Forty ancT six
years was this temple in building, and wilt
thou rear it up in three days?

21 But he spake p of the temple of his
body.

22 When therefore he was risen from the
dead, <i his disciples remembered that he had
said this unto them : and they believed the
scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

23 IT Now when he was jn Jerusalem at the
passover, in the feast-day, many believed in
his name, when they saw the miracles which
he did.

He teachetli the necessity of regeneration.

24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto
them, because he knew all men,

25 And needed not that any should testify
of man: for "^he knew what was in man.

CHAP. HI.

1 Christ teacheth Nicodemus the necessity ofregeneration
14 Of faith in his death. 16 The great love of God
towards the world. 18 Condemnation for unbelief.
23 The baptism, witness, and doctrine of John con-
cerning Christ.

THERE was a man of the Pharisees
named TN^icodemus, a ruler of the Jews :

2 *The same came to Jesus by night, and
said unto him, Rab^i, we know that thou
art a teacher come from God : for '' no man
can do these miracles that thou doest, except
''God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, ^ Except a
man be born || again, he cannot see the king-
dom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him. How can- a
man be born when he is old? can he enter
the second time into his mother's womb, and
be born?

5 Jesus answered. Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, •= Except a man be born of water,
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God.

6 That Avhich is born of the flesh, is flesh ;
and that which is born of the Spirit, is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye
must be born || again. •

8 ''The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof, but
canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither
it goeth : so is every one that is born of the
Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him,
!?How can these things be?

10 Jesus answered and said unto him. Art
thou a master of Israel, and knowest not
these tkings?

11 ''Verily, verily, I say unto thee. We
speak that we do know, and testify that
we have seen ; and ' ye receive not our wit-
ness.

12 If I have told you earthly things, and
ye believe not, how shall ye believe if 1 tell
you oy heavenly things?

13 And ''no man hath ascended up to
heaven, but he that came down from heaven,
even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 IT 'And as Moses hfted up the serpent '
in the wilderness, even so ™must the Son of
man be lifted up :

15 That whosoever belioveth in him should
not perish, but "have eternal life.

16 H" For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever

884



r



The witness of John concerning Christ.

believeth in him, should not perish", but have
everlasting life.

17 PFor God sent not his Son into the
werld to condemn the world, but that the
world through him might be saved.

18 IT'iHe that beheveth on him, is not
condemned : but he that believeth not, is con-
demned already, because he hath not believ-
ed in the name of the only begotten Son of
God.

19 And this is the condemnation, ""that
light is come into the world, and men loved
darkness rather than light, because their
deeds were evil.

20 For = every one that doeth evil hateth
the light, neither cometh to the light, lest
his deeds should be || reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth, cometh to the
light, that his deeds may be made manifest,
that they are wrought in God.

22 TT After these things came Jesus and
his disciples into the land of Judea; and
there he tarried with them, *and baptized.

23 IT And John also was baptizing in
^non, near to " Salim, because there was
much water there : ^ and they came, and
were baptized.

24 For y John was not yet cast into prison.

25 H Then there arose a question between
some of John's disciples and the Jews, about
purifying.

26 And they came unto John, and said
unto him. Rabbi, he that was with thee be-
yond Jordan, ^ to whom thou barest witness,
behold, the same baptizeth, and all men
come to him.

27 John answered and said, " A man can
II receive nothing, except it be given him
from heaven.

28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I
said, '' I am not the Cha-ist, but ■= that I am
sent before him.

29 'iHe that hath the bride, is the bride-
groom : but '^ the friend of the bridegroom,
which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth
greatly, because of the bridegroom's voice :
this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

31 ""He that cometh from above sis above
all: ''he that is of the earth is earthly, and
speaketh of the earth: 'he that cometh from
heaven is above all.

32 And ''what he hath seen- and heard,
that he testifieth ; and no man receiveth his
testimony. •• »

33 He that hath received his testimony,
'hath set to his seal that God is true.

34 ""For he whom God hath sent, speaketh
the words of God : for God giveth not the
Spirit " by measure unto Mm.

Christ tallieth with a woman of Samaria.

35 "The Father loveth the Son and hath
given all things into his hand.

36 pHe that believeth on the Son hath
everlasting life: and he that believeth not
the Son, shall not see life ; but the wrath of
God abideth. on him.

CHAP. IV. •

1 Christ talketh with a woman gf Samaria, and reveatelh
himself unto her.' 27 His disciples marvel. 31 He
declareth to them his zeal to God's glory. 39 Many
Samaritajis believe on him. 43 He departeth into
Galilee, and healeth the ruler's son that lay sick at
Capernaum.

WHEN therefore the Lord knew how
the Pharisees had heard that Jesus
made and ''baptized more disciples than John,

2 ("Though Jesus himself baptized not, but
his disciples,)

3 He left Judea, and departed again into
Galilee.

4 And he must needs go through Sama-
ria.

5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria,
which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of
ground ''that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

6 . Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus
therefore being Avearied with Ms journey, sat
thus on the well : and it was about the sixth
hour.

7 There cometh a woman of, Samaria to
draw water • Jesus saith unto her, Give me
to drink.

8 (For his disciples were gone away unto
the city to buy meat.)

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto
him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest
drink of me, which am a woman of Sama-
ria? for "the Jews have no dealings with the
Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her. If
thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is
that saith to thee. Give me to drink ; thou
wouldest have asked of him, and he would
have given thee ■' living water.

11 The woman saith unto him. Sir, thou
hast nothing to draw with, and the well is
deep : from whence then hast thou that
living water?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob,
which gave us the well, and drank thereof
himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh of this water, shall
thirst again :

14 But « whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him, shall never thirst; but
the water that I shall give him, '"shall be in
him a well of water springing up into ever-
lasting life.

15 eThe woman saith unto him. Sir, give

Chrisfs zeal to do the work of God.

me this water, that I thirst not, neither
come hither to draw.

16 Jesus saith unto her, Go call thy hus-
band, and come hither.

17 The woman answered and said, I have
no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast

.well said, I have no husband :

18 For thou hast had five husbands, and
he whom thou now hast, is not thy husband :
in that saidst thou truly.

19 The woman saith unto him. Sir, '■I
perceive that thou art a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped in 'this moun-
tain ; and ye say, that in '' Jerusalem is the
place where men ought to worship.

21 Jesus saith Unto her, Woman, beheve
me, the hour cometh, ' when ye shall neither
in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, wor-
ship the Father.

22 Ye worship ""ye know not what: we
know what we worship, for "salvation is of
the Jews.

23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
when the true worshippers shall worship the
Father .in ° spirit p and in truth : for the
Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 1 God is a Spirit : and they that wor-
ship him, must worship him in spirit and in
truth.

25 The woman saith unto him, I know-
that Messias cometh, which is called Christ;
when he is come, "^he will tell us all things.

26 Jesus saith unto her, =1 that speak unto
thee am he.

27 H And upon this came his disciples, and
marvelled that he talked with the woman :
yet ho man said. What seekest thou ? or.
Why talkest thou with her ?

28 The woman then- left her water-pot,
and went her way into the city, and saith to
the men,

29 Come, see a man ' which told me all
things that ever I did : is not this the Christ?

30 Then they went out of the city, and
came unto him.

31 II In the mean while his disciples
prayed him, saying. Master, eat.

32 But he said unto them, I have meat to
eat that ye know not of.

33 Therefore said the disciples one to
another. Hath any man brought him aught
to eat?

34 Jesus saith unto them, " My meat is to
do the will of him that sent me, and to finish
