John 7:40-44 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

40 Therefore of that company, when they had heard these words of him, they said, This is verily a prophet.

41 Others said, This is Christ. But some said, Whether Christ cometh from Galilee?

42 Whether the scripture saith not, that of the seed of David, and of the castle of Bethlehem, where David was, Christ cometh?

43 Therefore dissension was made among the people for him. [And so dissension is made in the company for him.]

44 And some of them would have taken him, but no man set hands on him.

John 7:40-44 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

40 Many of the people, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth, this is a prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. Some said, Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Does the scripture not say that Christ will come of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

43 So was there dissension among the people about him. 44 And some of them wanted to seize him, but no man laid hands on him.

40 [a]So many of the people, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is that Prophet:

41 Others said, This is that Christ: and some said, But shall that Christ come out of Galilee?

42 Saith not the Scripture that that Christ shall come of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

43 So was there dissension among the people for him.

44 And some of them would have taken him, but no man laid hands on him.

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? 43 So there was a division among the people because of him. 44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
