5:2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. Swimming pool
κολυμβηθρα (2861)
2 Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, called in Aramaic, `Bethesda,´ having five covered colonnades. AR.Bethesda (N.I.V.)
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.   3 In those porches there happened to congregate a number of invalids, who were blind, lame or had withered limbs. They would wait expectantly.  *                                            *   
5:4 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.   4 For at times an angel went down into the pool and disturbed the water. the person who then stepped in first, after the water moved, was cured of whatever ailment he (or she) had been suffering from at that time.  *                                      * 
5:5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.   5 And there was a man there who had been infirm for thirty-eight years.  
5:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he says unto him, Will you be made whole?   6 Jesus saw him lying in the alcove, and knowing that he had been in that condition for a long time, asked him, "Do you wish to be made whole again?"  
5:7 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 steps down before me.   7 "Sir," replied the invalid man, "I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is disturbed: when I try to move someone else steps down before me."  
5:8 Jesus says unto him, Rise, take up your bed, and walk.   8 "Rise up," said Jesus, "take your mat with you and walk."  
5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.   9 Immediately, the man was restored to health, and he took up his mat and began to walk. That day was the Sabbath.  
5:10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.  the healed man
τεθεραπευμενωι      (2323)
10 So the Judeans said to the man who had been cured, "It is the Sabbath: you must not carry your mat."  
5:11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up your bed, and walk.   11 "He who healed me," he replied, "said to me, `Take your mat with you and walk.´"  
5:12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto you, Take up your bed, and walk?   12 "Who is the man," they asked, "that said to you, `Take your mat with you and walk´?"  
5:13 And he that was healed know not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.   13 But the man did not know who healed him; for Jesus had passed through the crowd unnoticed. K.J.V. "wist not"
5:14 Afterward Jesus finds him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you.   14 After a time, Jesus found him in the Temple and said, "You are now restored to health. Do not sin anymore, or something worse may befall you."  
5:15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.   15 The man went and told the Judeans that it was Jesus who had restored him to health;  
5:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.   16 and on this account the Judeans began to persecute Jesus—because He did these things on the Sabbath.  
5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now, and I work.   17 His reply was, "My Father continues to work and so do I."  
5:18 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.   18 Then the Judeans were more eager to put Him to death, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also spoke of God as being His Father, thus making Himself equal with God.  
5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things whatsoever he does, these also does the Son likewise.   19 Jesus answered by saying, "In all truthfulness, I tell you, the Son can do nothing of Himself—He can only do what He sees the Father doing; for whatever HE does, the Son does in like manner. COPT.answered saying AR. 
5:20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that all of you may marvel.   20 The Father loves the Son and reveals to Him all that HE is doing. And greater deeds than these will HE reveal to Him, in order that you may marvel even more.  
5:21 For as the Father raises up the dead, and replenishes life to them; even so the Son gives life to whom he will.   21 For as the Father awakens the dead and gives them life, so the Son gives life to whom He will.  
5:22 For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son:   22 For the Father judges no one, but has committed judgment wholly to the Son,  
5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him.   23 that all may honor the Son even as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who has sent Him.  
5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, (o. logos) and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.   24 In all truthfulness, I tell you, anyone who listens to my teaching and believes in HIM who sent me has eternal Life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death into Life. (5:40)
5:25 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 shall live.   25 Truthfully again, I tell you that a time is coming, even now comes, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.  
5:26 For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself;   26 For just as the Father has life, so HE has given to the Son to have that life in Himself.  
5:27 And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.   27 And HE has given Him authority to act as Judge, because He is the Son of Man.  
5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,   28 Do not wonder at this: An hour will come when all the dead in the graves will hear His voice,  
5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. To resurrection   of life
ειςαναστασιν (386) ζωης
29 and come out—those who have done right to the resurrection of Life, but those who acted wrongly to the resurrection of judgment. (4:29)
5:30 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 has sent me.   30 I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, so I judge; and my judgment is true, because I do not seek my own will, but the will of HIM who sent me.  
5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.   31 If I give evidence on myself, my witness cannot be accepted.  
5:32 There is another that bears witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesses of me is true.   32 There is another giving evidence concerning me, and I know that the witness is true which HE offers about me.  
5:33 All of you sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.   33 You sent to John, and he was a witness to the truth.  
5:34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that all of you might be saved.   34 But the evidence which I receive is not from any man; though I say all this that you may be saved.  
5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and all of you were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.   35 He was the lamp that did burn and did shine, and for a time you were willing to bathe in his light.  
5:36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father has given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me.   36 But I have a greater witness than John; for the work the Father has appointed me to complete—the very work which I am doing—affords testimony concerning me that the Father has sent me.  
5:37 And the Father himself, which has sent me, has borne witness of me. All of you have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.   37 And the Father who sent me bore witness of me. None of you have ever heard HIS voice or seen what HE is like.  
5:38 And all of you have not his word (o. logos) abiding in you: for whom he has sent, him all of you believe not.   38 You do not have HIS word abiding within you, for you refuse to believe Him whom HE has sent.  
5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them all of you think all of you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.   39 You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you will find eternal Life; these Scriptures testify about me;  
5:40 And all of you will not come to me, that all of you might have life.   40 But you are unwilling to come to me that you may have Life. (10:28)
5:41 I receive not honour from men.

  41 I do not accept honor from such people.  
5:42 But I know you, that all of you have not the love (o. agape) of God in you.   42 I know that in your hearts you do not love God.  
5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and all of you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him all of you will receive.   43 I come in my Father's name, and you do not receive me. If someone else comes in his (or her) own name, you will receive that person. HOLY IS HIS NAME.
LU. 1:49
5:44 How can all of you believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that comes from God only?                    LATIN
  et   gloriam   ab   unico    Deo
44 How is it possible for you to believe, while you receive honor from one another and do not seek the honor that comes from the only true God? SACRED NAME Codex D
5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, in whom all of you trust.   45 I will not make an accusation against you to the Father. There is one who accuses you, namely Moses, on whom you trust.  
5:46 For had all of you believed Moses, all of you would have believed me; for he wrote of me.   46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me.  
5:47 But if all of you believe not his writings, how shall all of you believe my words? (o. rhema) words   you shall believe
ρημασιν πιστευσετε (4100)
47 But if you do not believe his writings, how are you to believe my words?"
