After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to
Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called
in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt,
withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and
troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the
water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight
When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in
that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is
troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another
steppeth down before me.
Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and
walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath
day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take
up thy bed, and walk.
Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up
thy bed, and walk?
And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed
himself away, a multitude being in that place.
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold,
thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made
And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him,
because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only
had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making
himself equal with God.
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father
do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son
For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that
himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye
For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so
the Son quickeneth whom he will.
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.
He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and
believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not
come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when
the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son
to have life in himself;
And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is
the Son of man.
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are
in the graves shall hear his voice,
And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of
the Father which hath sent me.
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the
witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye
might be saved.
He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a
season to rejoice in his light.
But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the
Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear
witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me.
Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him
ye believe not.
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and
they are they which testify of me.
And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
I receive not honour from men.
But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another
shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not
the honour that cometh from God only?
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that
accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of
But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the
sea of Tiberias.
And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles
which he did on them that were diseased.
And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his
And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto
him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may
And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small
fishes: but what are they among so many?
And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in
the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he
distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set
down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the
fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with
the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and
above unto them that had eaten.
Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said,
This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by
force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself
And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And
it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they
see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and
they were afraid.
But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the
ship was at the land whither they went.
The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of
the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one
whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with
his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away
(Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place
where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his
disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking
And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said
unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek
me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the
loaves, and were filled.
Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which
endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto
you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the
works of God?
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye
believe on him whom he hath sent.
They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we
may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave
them bread from heaven to eat.
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave
you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true
bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth
life unto the world.
Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to
me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh
to me I will in no wise cast out.
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of
him that sent me.
And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which
he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again
at the last day.
And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth
the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will
raise him up at the last day.
The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which
came down from heaven.
And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and
mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.
Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father,
cometh unto me.
Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he
hath seen the Father.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath
I am that bread of life.
Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat
thereof, and not die.
I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of
this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is
my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man
give us his flesh to eat?
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye
eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and
I will raise him up at the last day.
For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I
As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he
that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers
did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live
These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This
is an hard saying; who can hear it?
When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said
unto them, Doth this offend you?
What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the
words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the
beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me,
except it were given unto him of my Father.
From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more
Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast
the words of eternal life.
And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the
Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is
He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that
should betray him, being one of the twelve.
After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in
Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into
Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself
seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to
For neither did his brethren believe in him.
Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is
The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it,
that the works thereof are evil.
Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my
time is not yet full come.
When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the
feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for
some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the
Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and
And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that
If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether
it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that
seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no
unrighteousness is in him.
Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?
Why go ye about to kill me?
The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to
Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all
Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of
Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a
If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of
Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a
man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek
But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the
rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man
knoweth whence he is.
Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me,
and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that
sent me is true, whom ye know not.
But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because
his hour was not yet come.
And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh,
will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning
him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take
Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then
I go unto him that sent me.
Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye
Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we
shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles,
and teach the Gentiles?
What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and
shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly
shall flow rivers of living water.
(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that
Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a
truth this is the Prophet.
Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out
Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David,
and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
So there was a division among the people because of him.
And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they
said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one
Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he
They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search,
and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
And every man went unto his own house.
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the
people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in
adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but
what sayest thou?
This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But
Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as
though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said
unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a
stone at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and
Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said
unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn
thee: go, and sin no more.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall
have the light of life.
The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of
thyself; thy record is not true.
Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself,
yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go;
but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I
and the Father that sent me.
It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me
beareth witness of me.
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye
neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have
known my Father also.
These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple:
and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me,
and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I
go, ye cannot come.
And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are
of this world; I am not of this world.
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye
believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them,
Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is
true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man,
then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but
as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone;
for I do always those things that please him.
As he spake these words, many believed on him.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue
in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to
any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever
committeth sin is the servant of sin.
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my
word hath no place in you.
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which
ye have seen with your father.
They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith
unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of
But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which
I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born
of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for
I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he
Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will
do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh
of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye
not believe me?
He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not,
because ye are not of God.
Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou
art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do
And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall
never see death.
Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil.
Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my
saying, he shall never taste of death.
Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the
prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my
Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I
know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and
keep his saying.
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was
Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and
hast thou seen Abraham?
Jesus said unto them, Verily,verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham
was, I am.
Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and
went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man,
or his parents, that he was born blind?
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but
that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night
cometh, when no man can work.
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the
spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by
interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and
The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he
was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am
Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and
anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and
wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his
Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his
sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed,
and do see.
Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because
he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a
sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he
hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind,
and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had
received his sight.
And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born
blind? how then doth he now see?
His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and
that he was born blind:
But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his
eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the
Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was
Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him,
Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one
thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine
He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear:
wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are
We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not
from whence he is.
The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous
thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a
worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes
of one that was born blind.
If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins,
and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he
said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that
talketh with thee.
And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they
which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and
said unto him, Are we blind also?
Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but
now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into
the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief
and a robber.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he
calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and
the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they
know not the voice of strangers.
This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what
things they were which he spake unto them.
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am
the door of the sheep.
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep
did not hear them.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and
shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the
But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep
are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:
and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down
my life for the sheep.
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must
