John 5 (ASV)
 After these things there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches.
 In these lay a multitude of them that were sick, blind, halt, withered, [waiting for the moving of the water.]
 [for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the waters stepped in was made whole, with whatsoever disease he was holden.]
 And a certain man was there, who had been thirty and eight years in his infirmity.
 When Jesus saw him lying, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wouldest thou be made whole?
 The sick 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, Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.
 And straightway the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked. Now it was the sabbath on that day.
 So the Jews said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath, and it is not lawful for thee to take up thy bed.
 But he answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
 They asked him, Who is the man that said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
 But he that was healed knew not who it was; for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in the place.
 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing befall thee.
 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him whole.
 And for this cause the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did these things on the sabbath.
 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work.
 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.
 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel.
 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will.
 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son;
 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live.
 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself:
 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.
 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs 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 judgment.
 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth.
 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved.
 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light.
 But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
 And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe not.
 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me;
 and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
 I receive not glory from men.
 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves.
 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, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that cometh from the only God ye seek not?
 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, on whom ye have set your hope.
 For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.
 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

John 5 (KJVS)
 After G3326 this G5023 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a feast G1859 of the Jews G2453; and G2532 Jesus G2424 went up G305 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414.
 Now G1161 there is G2076 (PresInd) at G1722 Jerusalem G2414 by G1909 the sheep G4262 [market] a pool G2861, which G3588 is called G1951 (PresPasPtc) in the Hebrew tongue G1447 Bethesda G964, having G2192 (PresActPtc) five G4002 porches G4745.
 In G1722 these G5025 lay G2621 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) a great G4183 multitude G4128 of impotent folk G770 (PresActPtc), of blind G5185, halt G5560, withered G3584, waiting for G1551 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the moving G2796 of the water G5204.
 For G1063 an angel G32 went down G2597 (ImpfActInd) at G2596 a certain season G2540 into G1722 the pool G2861, and G2532 troubled G5015 (ImpfActInd) the water G5204: whosoever then G3767 first G4413 after G3326 the troubling G5016 of the water G5204 stepped in G1684 (Aor2ActPtc) was made G1096 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) whole G5199 of G3739 whatsoever G1221 disease G3553 he had G2722 (ImpfPasInd).
 And G1161 a certain G5100 man G444 was G2258 (ImpfInd) there G1563, which had G2192 (PresActPtc) an infirmity G1722 G769 thirty G5144 and eight G3638 years G2094.
 When Jesus G2424 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) him G5126 lie G2621 (PresMidPasDepPtc), and G2532 knew G1097 (Aor2ActPtc) that G3754 he had been G2192 (PresActInd) now G2235 a long G4183 time G5550 [in that case], he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Wilt thou G2309 (PresActInd) be made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) whole G5199?
 The impotent man G770 (PresActPtc) answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) him G846, Sir G2962, I have G2192 (PresActInd) no G3756 man G444, when G3752 the water G5204 is troubled G5015 (AorPasSubj), to G2443 put G906 (PresActSubj) me G3165 into G1519 the pool G2861: but G1161 while G1722 G3739 I G1473 am coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), another G243 steppeth down G2597 (PresActInd) before G4253 me G1700.
 Jesus G2424 saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Rise G1453 (AorMidImpr), take up G142 (AorActImpr) thy G4675 bed G2895, and G2532 walk G4043 (PresActImpr).
 And G2532 immediately G2112 the man G444 was made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) whole G5199, and G2532 took up G142 (AorActInd) his G846 bed G2895, and G2532 walked G4043 (ImpfActInd): and G1161 on G1722 the same G1565 day G2250 was G2258 (ImpfInd) the sabbath G4521.
 The Jews G2453 therefore G3767 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto him that was cured G2323 (PerfPasPtc), It is G2076 (PresInd) the sabbath day G4521: it is G1832 not G3756 lawful G1832 (PresInd) for thee G4671 to carry G142 (AorActInf) [thy] bed G2895.
 He answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, He that made G4160 (AorActPtc) me G3165 whole G5199, the same G1565 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto me G3427, Take up G142 (AorActImpr) thy G4675 bed G2895, and G2532 walk G4043 (PresActImpr).
 Then G3767 asked they G2065 (AorActInd) him G846, What G5101 man G444 is G2076 (PresInd) that which G3588 said G2036 (Aor2ActPtc) unto thee G4671, Take up G142 (AorActImpr) thy G4675 bed G2895, and G2532 walk G4043 (PresActImpr)?
 And G1161 he that was healed G2390 (AorPasPtc) wist G1492 (PlupfActInd) not G3756 who G5101 it was G2076 (PresInd): for G1063 Jesus G2424 had conveyed himself away G1593 (AorActInd), a multitude G3793 being G5607 (PresPtc) in G1722 [that] place G5117.
 Afterward G3326 G5023 Jesus G2424 findeth G2147 (PresActInd) him G846 in G1722 the temple G2411, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Behold G2396, thou art made G1096 (Perf2ActInd) whole G5199: sin G264 (PresActImpr) no more G3371, lest G3363 a worse thing G5501 G5100 come G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) unto thee G4671.
 The man G444 departed G565 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 told G312 (AorActInd) the Jews G2453 that G3754 it was G2076 (PresInd) Jesus G2424, which G3588 had made G4160 (AorActPtc) him G846 whole G5199.
 And G2532 therefore G1223 G5124 did G1377 the Jews G2453 persecute G1377 (ImpfActInd) Jesus G2424, and G2532 sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) to slay G615 (AorActInf) him G846, because G3754 he had done G4160 (ImpfActInd) these things G5023 on G1722 the sabbath day G4521.
 But G1161 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, My G3450 Father G3962 worketh G2038 (PresMidPasDepInd) hitherto G2193 G737, and I G2504 work G2038 (PresMidPasDepInd).
 Therefore G1223 G5124 G3767 the Jews G2453 sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) the more G3123 to kill G615 (AorActInf) him G846, because G3754 he G3089 not G3756 only G3440 had broken G3089 (ImpfActInd) the sabbath G4521, but G235 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) also G2532 that God G2316 was his G2398 Father G3962, making G4160 (PresActPtc) himself G1438 equal G2470 with God G2316.
 Then G3767 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) Jesus G2424 and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, The Son G5207 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) G3756 do G4160 (PresActInf) nothing G3762 of G575 himself G1438, but G3362 what G5100 he seeth G991 (PresActSubj) the Father G3962 do G4160 (PresActPtc): for G1063 what things soever G3739 G302 he G1565 doeth G4160 (PresActSubj), these G5023 also G2532 doeth G4160 (PresActInd) the Son G5207 likewise G3668.
 For G1063 the Father G3962 loveth G5368 (PresActInd) the Son G5207, and G2532 sheweth G1166 (PresActInd) him G846 all things G3956 that G3739 himself G846 doeth G4160 (PresActInd): and G2532 he will shew G1166 (FutActInd) him G846 greater G3187 works G2041 than G3187 these G5130, that G2443 ye G5210 may marvel G2296 (PresActSubj).
 For G1063 as G5618 the Father G3962 raiseth up G1453 (PresActInd) the dead G3498, and G2532 quickeneth G2227 (PresActInd) [them]; even G2532 so G3779 the Son G5207 quickeneth G2227 (PresActInd) whom G3739 he will G2309 (PresActInd).
 For G1063 G3761 the Father G3962 judgeth G2919 (PresActInd) no man G3762, but G235 hath committed G1325 (PerfActInd) all G3956 judgment G2920 unto the Son G5207:
 That G2443 all G3956 [men] should honour G5091 (PresActSubj) the Son G5207, even as G2531 they honour G5091 (PresActInd) the Father G3962. He that honoureth G5091 (PresActPtc) not G3361 the Son G5207 honoureth G5091 (PresActInd) not G3756 the Father G3962 which G3588 hath sent G3992 (AorActPtc) him G846.
 Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 He that heareth G191 (PresActPtc) my G3450 word G3056, and G2532 believeth G4100 (PresActPtc) on him that sent G3992 (AorActPtc) me G3165, hath G2192 (PresActInd) everlasting G166 life G2222, and G2532 shall G2064 not G3756 come G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) into G1519 condemnation G2920; but G235 is passed G3327 (PerfActInd) from G1537 death G2288 unto G1519 life G2222.
 Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 The hour G5610 is coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), and G2532 now G3568 is G2076 (PresInd), when G3753 the dead G3498 shall hear G191 (FutMidDepInd) the voice G5456 of the Son G5207 of God G2316: and G2532 they that hear G191 (AorActPtc) shall live G2198 (FutMidDepInd).
 For G1063 as G5618 the Father G3962 hath G2192 (PresActInd) life G2222 in G1722 himself G1438; so G2532 G3779 hath he given G1325 (AorActInd) to the Son G5207 to have G2192 (PresActInf) life G2222 in G1722 himself G1438;
 And G2532 hath given G1325 (AorActInd) him G846 authority G1849 to execute G4160 (PresActInf) judgment G2920 also G2532, because G3754 he is G2076 (PresInd) the Son G5207 of man G444.
 Marvel G2296 (PresActImpr) not G3361 at this G5124: for G3754 the hour G5610 is coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), in G1722 the which G3739 all G3956 that are in G1722 the graves G3419 shall hear G191 (FutMidDepInd) his G846 voice G5456,
 And G2532 shall come forth G1607 (FutMidDepInd); they that have done G4160 (AorActPtc) good G18, unto G1519 the resurrection G386 of life G2222; and G1161 they that have done G4238 (AorActPtc) evil G5337, unto G1519 the resurrection G386 of damnation G2920.
 I G1473 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) of G575 mine own self G1683 do G4160 (PresActInf) nothing G3756 G3762: as G2531 I hear G191 (PresActInd), I judge G2919 (PresActInd): and G2532 my G1699 judgment G2920 is G2076 (PresInd) just G1342; because G3754 I seek G2212 (PresActInd) not G3756 mine own G1699 will G2307, but G235 the will G2307 of the Father G3962 which hath sent G3992 (AorActPtc) me G3165.
 If G1437 I G1473 bear witness G3140 (PresActSubj) of G4012 myself G1683, my G3450 witness G3141 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 true G227.
 There is G2076 (PresInd) another G243 that beareth witness G3140 (PresActPtc) of G4012 me G1700; and G2532 I know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 the witness G3141 which G3739 he witnesseth G3140 (PresActInd) of G4012 me G1700 is G2076 (PresInd) true G227.
 Ye G5210 sent G649 (PerfActInd) unto G4314 John G2491, and G2532 he bare witness G3140 (PerfActInd) unto the truth G225.
 But G1161 I G1473 receive G2983 (PresActInd) not G3756 testimony G3141 from G3844 man G444: but G235 these things G5023 I say G3004 (PresActInd), that G2443 ye G5210 might be saved G4982 (AorPasSubj).
 He G1565 was G2258 (ImpfInd) a burning G2545 (PresPasPtc) and G2532 a shining G5316 (PresActPtc) light G3088: and G1161 ye G5210 were willing G2309 (AorActInd) for G4314 a season G5610 to rejoice G21 (AorPasDepInf) in G1722 his G846 light G5457.
 But G1161 I G1473 have G2192 (PresActInd) greater G3187 witness G3141 than [that] of John G2491: for G1063 the works G2041 which G3739 the Father G3962 hath given G1325 (AorActInd) me G3427 to G2443 finish G5048 (AorActSubj) G846, the same G846 works G2041 that G3739 I G1473 do G4160 (PresActInd), bear witness G3140 (PresActInd) of G4012 me G1700, that G3754 the Father G3962 hath sent G649 (PerfActInd) me G3165.
 And G2532 the Father G3962 himself G846, which hath sent G3992 (AorActPtc) me G3165, hath borne witness G3140 (PerfActInd) of G4012 me G1700. Ye have G191 neither G3777 heard G191 (Perf2ActInd) his G846 voice G5456 at any time G4455, nor G3777 seen G3708 (PerfActInd) his G846 shape G1491.
 And G2532 ye have G2192 (PresActInd) not G3756 his G846 word G3056 abiding G3306 (PresActPtc) in G1722 you G5213: for G3754 whom G3739 G1565 he hath sent G649 (AorActInd), him G5129 ye G5210 believe G4100 (PresActInd) not G3756.
 Search G2045 (PresActInd) the scriptures G1124; for G3754 in G1722 them G846 ye G5210 think G1380 (PresActInd) ye have G2192 (PresActInf) eternal G166 life G2222: and G2532 they G1565 are they G1526 (PresInd) which testify G3140 (PresActPtc) of G4012 me G1700.
 And G2532 ye will G2309 (PresActInd) not G3756 come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) to G4314 me G3165, that G2443 ye might have G2192 (PresActSubj) life G2222.
 I receive G2983 (PresActInd) not G3756 honour G1391 from G3844 men G444.
 But G235 I know G1097 (PerfActInd) you G5209, that G3754 ye have G2192 (PresActInd) not G3756 the love G26 of God G2316 in G1722 you G1438.
 I am G1473 come G2064 (Perf2ActInd) in G1722 my G3450 Father’s G3962 name G3686, and G2532 ye receive G2983 (PresActInd) me G3165 not G3756: if G1437 another G243 shall come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) in G1722 his own G2398 name G3686, him G1565 ye will receive G2983 (FutMidDepInd).
 How G4459 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) ye G5210 believe G4100 (AorActInf), which receive G2983 (PresActPtc) honour G1391 one of another G3844 G240, and G2532 seek G2212 (PresActInd) not G3756 the honour G1391 that [cometh] from G3844 God G2316 only G3441?
 Do G1380 not G3361 think G1380 (PresActImpr) that G3754 I G1473 will accuse G2723 (FutActInd) you G5216 to G4314 the Father G3962: there is G2076 (PresInd) [one] that accuseth G2723 (PresActPtc) you G5216, [even] Moses G3475, in G1519 whom G3739 ye G5210 trust G1679 (PerfActInd).
 For G1063 G1487 had ye believed G4100 (ImpfActInd) Moses G3475, ye would have believed G4100 (ImpfActInd) G302 me G1698: for G1063 he G1565 wrote G1125 (AorActInd) of G4012 me G1700.
 But G1161 if G1487 ye believe G4100 (PresActInd) not G3756 his G1565 writings G1121, how G4459 shall ye believe G4100 (FutActInd) my G1699 words G4487?
Young’s Literal Translation
John 5 (YLT)
 After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
 and there is in Jerusalem by the sheep-gate a pool that is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches,
 in these were lying a great multitude of the ailing, blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water,
 for a messenger at a set time was going down in the pool, and was troubling the water, the first then having gone in after the troubling of the water, became whole of whatever sickness he was held.
 And there was a certain man there being in ailment thirty and eight years,
 him Jesus having seen lying, and having known that he is already a long time, he saith to him, ‘Dost thou wish to become whole?’
 The ailing man answered him, ‘Sir, I have no man, that, when the water may be troubled, he may put me into the pool, and while I am coming, another doth go down before me.’
 Jesus saith to him, ‘Rise, take up thy couch, and be walking;’
 and immediately the man became whole, and he took up his couch, and was walking, and it was a sabbath on that day,
 the Jews then said to him that hath been healed, ‘It is a sabbath; it is not lawful to thee to take up the couch.’
 He answered them, ‘He who made me whole-that one said to me, Take up thy couch, and be walking;’
 they questioned him, then, ‘Who is the man who is saying to thee, Take up thy couch and be walking?’
 But he that was healed had not known who he is, for Jesus did move away, a multitude being in the place.
 After these things, Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him, ‘Lo, thou hast become whole; sin no more, lest something worse may happen to thee.’
 The man went away, and told the Jews that it is Jesus who made him whole,
 and because of this were the Jews persecuting Jesus, and seeking to kill him, because these things he was doing on a sabbath.
 And Jesus answered them, ‘My Father till now doth work, and I work;’
 because of this, then, were the Jews seeking the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the sabbath, but he also called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.
 Jesus therefore responded and said to them, ‘Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son is not able to do anything of himself, if he may not see the Father doing anything; for whatever things He may do, these also the Son in like manner doth;
 for the Father doth love the Son, and doth shew to him all things that He himself doth; and greater works than these He will shew him, that ye may wonder.
 ‘For, as the Father doth raise the dead, and doth make alive, so also the Son doth make alive whom he willeth;
 for neither doth the Father judge any one, but all the judgment He hath given to the Son,
 that all may honour the Son according as they honour the Father; he who is not honouring the Son, doth not honour the Father who sent him.
 ‘Verily, verily, I say to you-He who is hearing my word, and is believing Him who sent me, hath life age-during, and to judgment he doth not come, but hath passed out of the death to the life.
 ‘Verily, verily, I say to you-There cometh an hour, and it now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those having heard shall live;
 for, as the Father hath life in himself, so He gave also to the Son to have life in himself,
 and authority He gave him also to do judgment, because he is Son of Man.
 ‘Wonder not at this, because there doth come an hour in which all those in the tombs shall hear his voice,
