John 7:25–52

25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, awhom they seek to kill? 26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do kthe rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? 27 lHowbeit mwe know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth nwhence he is. 28 Then ocried Jesus pin the temple as he taught, saying, qYe both know me, and ye know whence I am: and rI am not come of myself, but he that sent me is strue, twhom ye know not. 29 But uI know him: for I am wfrom him, and xhe hath sent me. 30 Then ythey sought to take him: but zno man laid hands on him, because zahis hour was not yet come. 31 And bmany of the people believed on him, and said, cWhen Christ cometh, will he do more dmiracles than these which this man hath done? 32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent eofficers to take him. 33 Then said Jesus unto them, fYet a little while am I with you, and then gI go unto him that sent me. 34 fhYe shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where iI am, thither jye cannot come. 35 Then said kthe Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto lthe dispersed among the ||Gentiles, and teach the ||Gentiles? 36 What manner of saying is this that he said, mYe shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?

37 In the last day, nthat great day of the feast, Jesus stood and ocried, saying, pIf any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 qHe that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, rout of his belly shall flow rivers of sliving water. 39 (But tthis spake he of uthe Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: xfor the Holy Ghost was not yet ygiven; zbecause that Jesus was not yet aglorified.) 40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is bthe Prophet. 41 Others said, cThis is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come dout of Galilee? 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh eof the seed of David, and out of the town of fBeth-lehem, gwhere David was? 43 So there was ha division among the people because of him. 44 And isome of them would have taken him; ibut no man laid hands on him.

45 Then came kthe officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, kWhy have ye not brought him? 46 kThe officers answered, lNever man spake like this man. 47 Then answered them the Pharisees, mAre ye also deceived? 48 nHave any of othe rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? 49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. 50 oNicodemus saith unto them, p(he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 51 Doth qour law judge any man, before it rhear him, and know what he doeth? 52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for sout of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
