7:1  After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
7:2  Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3  His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
7:4  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 the world.
7:5  For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7:6  Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7:7  The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
7:8  Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
7:9  When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
7:10  But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
7:11  Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
7:12  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 people.
7:13  Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
7:14  Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
7:15  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
7:16  Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
7:17  If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
7:18  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.
7:19  Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
7:20  The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
7:21  Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
7:22  Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
7:23  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?
7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
7:25  Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
7:26  But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
7:27  Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
7:28  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.
7:29  But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
7:30  Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
7:31  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?
7:32  The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
7:33  Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
7:34  Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
7:35  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?
7:36  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?
7:37  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.
7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
7:39  (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.)
7:40  Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
7:41  Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
7:42  Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
7:43  So there was a division among the people because of him.
7:44  And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
7:45  Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
7:46  The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
7:47  Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
7:48  Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
7:49  But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
7:50  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
7:51  Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
7:52  They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
7:53  And every man went unto his own house.
