John 5 : 1 - 9

Chapter 5

1After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.
3In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.
4For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.
5Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.
6When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"
7The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."
8Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk."
9And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.
