5:1 icapsfter this there was a feast of the Iewes, and Iesus went vp to Hierusalem.  
5:2 Now there is at Hierusalem by the sheepe market, a poole, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, hauing fiue porches. Margin Note
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folke, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the mouing of the water.  
5:4 For an Angel went downe at a certaine season into the poole, and troubled the water: whosoeuer then first after the troubling of the water stepped in, was made whole of whatsoeuer disease he had.  
5:5 And a certaine man was there, which had an infirmitie thirtie and eight yeeres.  
5:6 When Iesus saw him lie, & knew that hee had beene now a long time in that case, he sayth vnto him, Wilt thou be made whole?  
5:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I haue no man when the water is troubled, to put mee into the poole: but while I am comming, another steppeth downe before me.  
5:8 Iesus sayth vnto him, Rise, take vp thy bed, and walke.  
5:9 And immediatly the man was made whole, and tooke vp his bed, and walked: And on the same day was the Sabbath.  
5:10 The Iewes therefore said vnto him that was cured, It is the Sabbath day, it is not lawfull for thee to cary thy bed.  
5:11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said vnto me, Take vp thy bed, and walke.  
5:12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said vnto thee, Take vp thy bed, and walke?  
5:13 And he that was healed, wist not who it was: for Iesus had conueyed himselfe away, a multitude being in that place. Margin Note
5:14 Afterward Iesus findeth him in the Temple, & said vnto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sinne no more, lest a worse thing come vnto thee.  
5:15 The man departed, and tolde the Iewes that it was Iesus which had made him whole.  
5:16 And therefore did the Iewes persecute Iesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the Sabbath day.  
5:17 But Iesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, & I worke.  
5:18 Therefore the Iewes sought the more to kill him, not onely because hee had broken the Sabbath, but said also, that God was his father, making himselfe equall with God.  
5:19 Then answered Iesus, and saide vnto them, Uerily, verily I say vnto you, The sonne can doe nothing of himselfe, but what he seeth the Father doe: for what things soeuer he doeth, these also doth the sonne likewise.  
5:20 For the father loueth the sonne, and sheweth him all things that himselfe doth: & he will shew him greater works then these, that ye may marueile.  
5:21 For as the Father raiseth vp the dead, and quickeneth them: euen so the Sonne quickeneth whom he will.  
5:22 For the Father iudgeth no man: but hath committed all iudgement vnto the Sonne:  
5:23 That all men should honour the Son, euen as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not ye Sonne, honoreth not ye Father which hath sent him.  
5:24 Uerily, verily I say vnto you, Hee that heareth my word, & beleeueth on him that sent mee, hath euerlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation: but is passed from death vnto life.  
5:25 Uerily, verily I say vnto you, The houre is comming, & now is, when the dead shall heare the voice of the Sonne of God: and they that heare, shall liue.  
5:26 For as the Father hath life in himselfe: so hath he giuen to the Sonne to haue life in himselfe:  
5:27 And hath giuen him authority to execute iudgement also, because he is the Sonne of man.  
5:28 Marueile not at this: for the houre is comming, in the which all that are in the graues shall heare his voice,  
5:29 And shall come foorth, they that haue done good, vnto the resurrection of life, and they that haue done euill, vnto the resurrection of damnation.  
5:30 I can of mine owne selfe doe nothing: as I heare, I iudge: and my iudgement is iust, because I seeke not mine owne will, but the will of the Father, which hath sent me.  
5:31 If I beare witnesse of my selfe, my witnesse is not true.  
5:32 There is another that beareth witnesse of me, & I know that the witnesse which he witnesseth of me, is true.  
5:33 Ye sent vnto Iohn, and he bare witnesse vnto the trueth.  
5:34 But I receiue not testimonie from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saued.  
5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to reioyce in his light.  
5:36 But I haue greater witnesse then that of Iohn: for the workes which the Father hath giuen me to finish, the same workes that I doe, beare witnesse of mee, that the Father hath sent me.  
5:37 And the Father himselfe which hath sent me, hath borne witnesse of me. Ye haue neither heard his voyce at any time, nor seene his shape.  
5:38 And ye haue not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye beleeue not.  
5:39 Search the Scriptures, for in them ye thinke ye haue eternall life, and they are they which testifie of me.  
5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might haue life.  
5:41 I receiue not honour from men.  
5:42 But I know you, that ye haue not the loue of God in you.  
5:43 I am come in my Fathers name, and ye receiue me not: if another shall come in his owne Name, him ye will receiue.  
5:44 How can ye beleeue, which receiue honour one of another, & seeke not the honour that commeth from God onely?  
5:45 Doe not thinke that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, euen Moses, in whom ye trust?  
5:46 For had ye beleeued Moses, ye would haue beleeued me: for he wrote of me.  
5:47 But if ye beleeue not his writings, how shall ye beleeue my words?
