John 5:1-9

1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to

Jerusalem. 2 Now there is at 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 impotent folk, of

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 after the troubling of the water

stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. 5 And a

certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight

years. 6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a

long time [in that case], he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made

whole? 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 steppeth down before me. 8 Jesus saith unto him,

Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9 And immediately the man was

made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day

was the sabbath.
