[1] 25152515    John ix. 39.And Jesus said, To judge the world am I come, so that they that see not may [2] see, and they that see may become blind.  25162516    John ix. 40.And some of the Pharisees which were [3] with him heard that, and they said unto him, Can it be that we are blind?  25172517    John ix. 41.Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should not have sin:  but now ye say, We see:  and because of this your sin remaineth.25182518    Or, is permanent.

[4] [Arabic, p. 140] 25192519    John x. 1.Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever entereth not into the fold of the sheep by the door, but goeth up from another place, that man is a thief and a [5, 6] stealer.  25202520    John x. 2.But he that entereth by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  25212521    John x. 3.And therefore25222522    Or, to him. the keeper of the door openeth for him the door; and the sheep hear his voice:  and [7] he calleth his sheep25232523    A different word (lit. rams) from that used in the other verses; so in Peshitta (cf. Sin., which, however, differs somewhat); cf. also § 54, 40 f., note. by their names, and they go forth unto him.  25242524    John x. 4.And when he putteth forth his sheep, he goeth before them, and his sheep25252525    A different word (lit. rams) from that used in the other verses; so in Peshitta (cf. Sin., which, however, differs somewhat); cf. also § 54, 40 f., note. follow him:  because [8] they know his voice.  25262526    John x. 5.And after a stranger will the sheep not go, but they flee from [9] him:  because they hear not the voice of a stranger.  25272527    John x. 6.This parable spake Jesus unto them:  but they knew not what he was saying unto them.

[10] 25282528    John x. 7.Jesus said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the [11] sheep.  25292529    John x. 8.And all that came are thieves and stealers:  but the sheep heard them not.  [12] 25302530    John x. 9.I am the door:  and if a man enter by me, he shall live, and shall go in and go out, [13] and shall find pasture.  25312531    John x. 10.And the stealer cometh not, save that he may steal, and kill, and destroy:  but I came that they might have life, and that they might have [14] the thing that is better.25322532    Or, best thing.  Vat. ms. omits from but I came.  25332533    John x. 11.I am the good shepherd; and the good shepherd giveth [15] himself25342534    Or, his life. for his sheep.  25352535    John x. 12.But the hireling, who is not a shepherd, and whose the sheep25362536    cf. note to § 37, 6. are not, when he seeth the wolf as it cometh, leaveth the sheep, and fleeth, [16] and the wolf cometh, and snatcheth away the sheep, and scattereth25372537    Or, to snatch…and scatter. them:  25382538    John x. 13.and the [17] hireling fleeth because he is an hireling, and hath no care for the sheep.  25392539    John x. 14.I am the [18] good shepherd; 25402540    John x. 15.and I know what is mine, and what is mine knoweth me, as my Father knoweth me, and I know my Father; and I give myself25412541    Or, my life. for the sheep.  [19] 25422542    John x. 16.And I have other sheep also, that are not of this flock:  them also I must invite, and they shall hear my voice; and all the sheep shall be one, and the shepherd one.  [20] [Arabic, p. 141] 25432543    John x. 17.And therefore doth my Father love me, because I give my life, that I may [21] take it again.  25442544    John x. 18.No man taketh it from me, but I leave it of my own choice.  And I have the right to leave it, and have the right also to take it.  And this commandment did I receive of my Father.

[22] 25452545    John x. 19.And there occurred a disagreement among the Jews because of these sayings.  [23] 25462546    John x. 20.And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is afflicted with madness;25472547    Lit. epilepsy. why listen [24] ye to him?  25482548    John x. 21.And others said, These sayings are not those of men possessed with demons.  Can a demon haply open the eyes of a blind man?

[25, 26] 25492549    John x. 22.And the feast of the dedication came on at Jerusalem:  and it was winter.  25502550    John x. 23.And [27] Jesus was walking in the temple in the porch of Solomon.  25512551    John x. 24.The Jews therefore surrounded him, and said unto him, Until when dost thou make our hearts anxious?  [28] 25522552    John x. 25.If thou art the Messiah, tell us plainly.  He answered and said unto them, I told you, and ye believe not:  and the deeds that I do in my Father’s name bear witness [29, 30] to me.  25532553    John x. 26.But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep,25542554    cf. § 37, 6. as I said unto you.  [31] 25552555    John x. 27.And my sheep25562556    cf. § 37, 6. hear my voice, and I know them, and they come after me:  25572557    John x. 28.and I give them eternal life; and they shall not perish for ever, nor shall any man snatch [32] them out of my hands.25582558    Or, hand; but probably dual (cf. Syr.).  25592559    John x. 29.For the Father, who hath given them unto me, is greater [33] than all; and no man is able to take them from the hand of my25602560    So Peshitta; but Sin. the.  Borg. ms. omits the hand of. Father.  25612561    John x. 30.I and [34, 35] my Father are one.  25622562    John x. 31.And the Jews took stones to stone him.  25632563    John x. 32.Jesus said unto them, Many good deeds from my Father have I shewed you; because of which25642564    Lit. which deed. of them, [36] then, do ye stone me?  25652565    John x. 33.The Jews said unto him, Not for the good deeds do we stone thee, but because thou blasphemest; and, whilst thou art a man, makest thyself 101 [37] God.  25662566    John x. 34.Jesus said unto them, Is it not thus written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  [38] [Arabic, p. 142] 25672567    John x. 35.And if he called those gods—for25682568    cf. Peshitta. to them came the word of God (and it is [39] not possible in25692569    This in could more easily arise as a clerical error (repetition) in the Syriac text. the scripture that anything should be undone)—25702570    John x. 36.he then, whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world, do ye say that he blasphemeth; [40] because I said unto you, I am the Son of God?  25712571    John x. 37.If then I do not the deeds of my [41] Father, ye believe me not.25722572    So Ciasca’s text, following Vat. ms.  But this is probably a clerical error for the reading of Borg. ms., which omits ye.  25732573    John x. 38.But if I do, even if ye believe not me, believe the deeds:  that ye may know and believe that my Father is in me, and I in my Father.  [42] 25742574    John x. 39.And they sought again to take him:  and he went forth out of their hands.

[43] 25752575    John x. 40.And he went beyond Jordan to the place where John was baptizing formerly; [44] and abode there.  25762576    John x. 41.And many people came unto him; and they said, John did not [45] work even one sign:  but all that John said of this man is truth.  25772577    John x. 42.And many believed in him.

[46] 25782578    John xi. 1.And there was a sick man, named Lazarus, of the village of Bethany, the brother [47] of Mary and Martha.  25792579    John xi. 2.And Mary was she that anointed with sweet ointment the feet of Jesus, and wiped them with her hair; and Lazarus, who was sick, was the [48] brother of this woman.25802580    cf. Peshitta.  25812581    John xi. 3.And his sisters sent unto Jesus, and said unto him, Our [49] Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.  25822582    John xi. 4.But Jesus said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glorifying of God, that the Son of God may be glorified [50, 51] because of it.  25832583    John xi. 5.And Jesus loved Martha, and Mary, and Lazarus.  25842584    John xi. 6.And when he [52] heard that he was sick, he abode in the place where he was two days.  25852585    John xi. 7.And after that, [53] he said unto his disciples, Come, let us go into Judæa.  25862586    John xi. 8.His disciples said unto him, Our [Arabic, p. 143] Master, now the Jews desire to stone thee; and goest thou again thither?  [54, 55] 25872587    John xi. 9.Jesus said unto them, Is not the day of twelve hours?  If then a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of the world.  25882588    John xi. 10.But if [56] a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no lamp in him.  25892589    John xi. 11.This said Jesus:  and after that, he said unto them, Lazarus our friend hath fallen asleep; but [57] I am going to awaken him.  25902590    John xi. 12.His disciples said unto him, Our Lord, if he hath [58] fallen asleep, he will recover.  25912591    John xi. 13.But Jesus said that concerning his death:  while they [59] supposed that he spake of lying down to sleep.  25922592    John xi. 14.Then Jesus said unto them plainly, [60] Lazarus is dead.  25932593    John xi. 15.And I am glad that I was not there for your sakes, that ye may [61] believe; but let us go thither.  25942594    John xi. 16.Thomas, who is called Thama,25952595    The Syriac word for Twin. said to the disciples, his companions, Let us also go, and die with him.
