1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Je­sus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in He­brew called Beth-za'tha, which has five por­ti­coes. 3 In these lay a mul­ti­tude of in­valids, blind, lame, par­a­lyzed. 5 One man was there, who had been ill for thirty-eight years. 6 When Je­sus saw him and knew that he had been ly­ing there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be healed?" 7 The sick man an­swered him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the wa­ter is trou­bled, and while I am go­ing an­other steps down be­fore me." 8 Je­sus said to him, "Rise, take up your pal­let, and walk." 9 And at once the man was healed, and he took up his pal­let and walked. Now that day was the sab­bath. 10 So the Jews said to the man who was cured, "It is the sab­bath, it is not law­ful for you to carry your pal­let." 11 But he an­swered them, "The man who healed me said to me, `Take up your pal­let, and walk.'" 12 They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, `Take up your pal­let, and walk'?" 13 Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Je­sus had with­drawn, as there was a crowd in the place. 14 Af­ter­ward, Je­sus found him in the tem­ple, and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that noth­ing worse be­fall you." 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Je­sus who had healed him. 16 And this was why the Jews per­se­cuted Je­sus, be­cause he did this on the sab­bath.
