John 5:1-14 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
5 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of invalid folk — blind, halt, withered — waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool and troubled the water. Whosoever then first stepped in, after the troubling of the water, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there who had an infirmity for thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been in that state a long time, He said unto him, “Wilt thou be made whole?”
7 The infirm 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.”
8 Jesus said unto him, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked. Now it was the Sabbath on that day.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, “It is the Sabbath day; it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.”
11 He answered them, “He that made me whole said unto me, ‘Take up thy bed and walk.’”
12 Then they asked him, “What man is that who said unto thee, ‘Take up thy bed and walk’?”
13 And he that was healed knew not who it was, for Jesus had removed Himself away, a multitude being in that place.
14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said unto him, “Behold, thou art made whole. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.”
