7:2 Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.
Tent fastening σκηνοπηγια (4634)
2 And the Judean Festival of Tabernacles was drawing near.
7:3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart behind, and go into Judaea, that your disciples also may see the works that you do.
3 Therefore His brothers said to Him, "Cross over the territory into Judea, so that your disciples may witness the works which you perform. * *
7:4 For there is no man that does any thing in secret, and he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.
4 No one acts in secret, while desiring to be known openly. Since you are doing these deeds, show yourself to the world."
7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
5 For even His brothers did not believe in Him.
7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is always ready.
6 "My hour," replied Jesus, "has not yet come, but for you, time is always ready.
7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
7 The world is not able to hate you; but it hates me, for I give testimony concerning the world that its works are evil.
7:8 Go all of you up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
8 All of you go to the Festival. I am not going up yet, because my time is not fulfilled."
7:9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
9 Having given this directive, He stayed 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.
10 However, when His brothers left for the Festival, then He went up also, not openly, but in a private manner.
7:11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
11 Meanwhile the Judeans at the Festival were looking for Him and were inquiring, "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 deceives the people.
12 Among the mass of people there was much debate about Him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others said, "Not so: He is misleading the people."
7:13 Nevertheless no man spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews.
13 Yet, fearing the wrath of the Judean leaders no one spoke openly about Him.
7:14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
In the middle μεσουσης (3322)
14 The Festival was already half over when Jesus arrived at the Temple and began to teach.
7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knows this man letters, having never learned?
15 The leaders of Judea asked, in wonderment, "How does this man know anything of letters, having never been taught."
7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
16 Jesus answered them by saying, "My teaching is not mine, but comes from HIM who 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.
17 If anyone is willing to do HIS will, that person shall know about the teaching, whether it is from God or I speak of myself.
7:18 He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
18 The man whose teaching originates with himself seeks his own glory. He who seeks the glory of HIM who sent Him teaches the truth, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Truth: No ordinary man here.
7:19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why go all of you about to kill me?
19 Did not Moses give you the Law? And yet not one of you obeys the Law. Why do you mean to kill me?"
7:20 The people answered and said, You have a devil: who goes about to kill you?
20 "You are possessed by a demon, who wants to kill you?" replied the people.
7:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and all of you all marvel.
21 "A single work I have done," replied Jesus, "and all of you are full of wonder.
7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and all of you on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
22 So, Moses gave you the rite of circumcision (not that it began with Moses, but with the fathers), and even on a Sabbath day you circumcise a child.
7:23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are all of you angry at me, because I have made a man everything whole on the sabbath day?
23 For the Law of Moses to remain unbroken, a man child is circumcised even on a Sabbath day, why are you angry with me because I have restored a man entirely to health on a Sabbath day?
7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
24 Do not judge by appearance, but judge rightly in any judgment."
7:25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
25 Then some of the people of Jerusalem said, "Is this not the man they want to kill?
7:26 But, lo, he speaks boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
26 See how He is speaking openly, and they say nothing to Him! Can the leaders really have discovered that this man is the Christ?
7:27 Nevertheless we know this man whence he is: but when Christ comes, no man knows whence he is.
27 Regardless, we know this man and we know where He is from; but as for the Christ, when He comes, no one will know where He comes from."
7:28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, All of you both know me, and all of you know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom all of you know not.
28 Jesus therefore, while teaching in the Temple, cried out, and said, "Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. And yet I have not come on my own; but there is ONE who has truly sent me, of whom you do not know.
7:29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he has sent me.
29 I know HIM, because I came from HIM, and HE sent me."
7:30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
30 They wanted to arrest Him; and not a hand was laid on Him, for His hour had not yet come.
7:31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ comes, will he do more miracles than these which this man has done?
31 But among the crowd a large number believed in Him. "When the Christ comes," they said, "will He perform more miracles than this Teacher has performed?"
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.
32 The Pharisees heard the people expressing their various concerns about Him, and the Pharisees and High Priests sent some officers to seize 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.
33 Then Jesus said, "I am with you for a short time only, and afterward I go away to HIM who sent me.
7:34 All of you shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither all of you cannot come.
34 You will look for me and not find me, thus where I am you are not able to come."
7:35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Where will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
35 The Judeans therefore said to one another, "Where is He about to go, so that we shall not find Him? Will He go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?
7:36 What manner of saying (o. logos) is this that he said, All of you shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither all of you cannot come?
36 What is this saying of His, `You will look for me, and not find me, and where I am you are not able to 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.
37 On the great day which was the last day of the Festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone thirst, come unto me and drink.
7:38 He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
LATIN sicut dixit scriptura
38 The person who believes in me, as the scripture says, from that very being shall flow rivers of living water."
7:39 (But this spoke he of the Spirit, (o. pneuma) which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit (o. pneuma) was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
39 He referred to the Spirit which those who believed in Him would receive; for the Spirit was not yet bestowed, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, (o. logos) said, Truthfully this is the Prophet.
40 After listening to this discourse, many of the crowd began to say, "This must be the Prophet."
7:41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
41 Others said, "He is the Christ." And again others, "Does the Christ come from Galilee?
7:42 Has not the scripture said, That Christ comes of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
42 Did the Scripture not declare that the Christ is to come from the lineage of David and from Bethlehem, the town of David?"
7:43 So there was a division among the people because of him.
43 So there was division among the people on His account.
7:44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
44 Some of them wanted to arrest Him, but no one put a hand upon Him.
7:45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have all of you not brought him?
45 The officers returned to the High Priests and Pharisees, and the leadership asked them, "Why did you not bring Him?"
7:46 The officers answered, Never man spoke like this man.
46 The reply from the officers, "Never before has a man spoken the words that this man speaks."
7:47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are all of you also deceived?
47 "Have you been misled also?" responded the Pharisees.
7:48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
48 "Have any of the leaders or the Pharisees believed in Him?
7:49 But this people who know[s] not the law are cursed.
are accursed επικαταρατοι (1944)
49 As for this crowd who understand nothing about the Law, they are accursed."
7:50 Nicodemus says unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
LATINIZED(-us) GREEK(-ous) dicit Nicodemus ad illos
50 Nicodemus spoke up as one of the leaders—the one who had come to Jesus at night.
7:51 Does our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he does?
51 "Does our Law," he asked, "judge a man without first hearing what he will say and know what he has done?"
7:52 They answered and said unto him, Are you also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee arises no prophet.
52 "Do you also come from Galilee?" they asked in reply. "Search for yourself and see that no Prophet arises out of Galilee."
