    Section XXXVII.

    [1] 2515

    2515 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 blind2516

    2516 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 blind2517

    2517 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.2518

    2518 Or, is permanent.

    [4] [Arabic, p. 140] 2519

    2519 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.  2520

    2520 John x. 2.

    But he that entereth by the door is the shepherd of the sheep2521

    2521 John x. 3.

    And therefore2522

    2522 Or, to him.

    the keeper of the door openeth for him the door; and the sheep hear his voice:  and [7] he calleth his sheep2523

    2523 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.  2524

    2524 John x. 4.

    And when he putteth forth his sheep, he goeth before them, and his sheep2525

    2525 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.  2526

    2526 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 stranger2527

    2527 John x. 6.

    This parable spake Jesus unto them:  but they knew not what he was saying unto them.

    [10] 2528

    2528 John x. 7.

    Jesus said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the [11] sheep2529

    2529 John x. 8.

    And all that came are thieves and stealers:  but the sheep heard them not.  [12] 2530

    2530 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 pasture2531

    2531 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.2532

    2532 Or, best thing.  Vat. ms. omits from but I came.


    2533 John x. 11.

    I am the good shepherd; and the good shepherd giveth [15] himself2534

    2534 Or, his life.

    for his sheep2535

    2535 John x. 12.

    But the hireling, who is not a shepherd, and whose the sheep2536

    2536 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 scattereth2537

    2537 Or, to snatch…and scatter.

    them:  2538

    2538 John x. 13.

    and the [17] hireling fleeth because he is an hireling, and hath no care for the sheep2539

    2539 John x. 14.

    I am the [18] good shepherd; 2540

    2540 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 myself2541

    2541 Or, my life.

    for the sheep.  [19] 2542

    2542 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] 2543

    2543 John x. 17.

    And therefore doth my Father love me, because I give my life, that I may [21] take it again.  2544

    2544 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] 2545

    2545 John x. 19.

    And there occurred a disagreement among the Jews because of these sayings.  [23] 2546

    2546 John x. 20.

    And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is afflicted with madness;2547

    2547 Lit. epilepsy.

    why listen [24] ye to him?  2548

    2548 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] 2549

    2549 John x. 22.

    And the feast of the dedication came on at Jerusalem:  and it was winter2550

    2550 John x. 23.

    And [27] Jesus was walking in the temple in the porch of Solomon2551

    2551 John x. 24.

    The Jews therefore surrounded him, and said unto him, Until when dost thou make our hearts anxious?  [28] 2552

    2552 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.  2553

    2553 John x. 26.

    But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep,2554

    2554 cf. § 37, 6.

    as I said unto you.  [31] 2555

    2555 John x. 27.

    And my sheep2556

    2556 cf. § 37, 6.

    hear my voice, and I know them, and they come after me:  2557

    2557 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.2558

    2558 Or, hand; but probably dual (cf. Syr.).


    2559 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 my2560

    2560 So Peshitta; but Sin. the.  Borg. ms. omits the hand of.


    2561 John x. 30.

    I and [34, 35] my Father are one.  2562

    2562 John x. 31.

    And the Jews took stones to stone him.  2563

    2563 John x. 32.

    Jesus said unto them, Many good deeds from my Father have I shewed you; because of which2564

    2564 Lit. which deed.

    of them, [36] then, do ye stone me?  2565

    2565 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 [37] God2566

    2566 John x. 34.

    Jesus said unto them, Is it not thus written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  [38] [Arabic, p. 142] 2567

    2567 John x. 35.

    And if he called those gods—for2568

    2568 cf. Peshitta.

    to them came the word of God (and it is [39] not possible in2569

    2569 This in could more easily arise as a clerical error (repetition) in the Syriac text.

    the scripture that anything should be undone)—2570

    2570 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 God2571

    2571 John x. 37.

    If then I do not the deeds of my [41] Father, ye believe me not.2572

    2572 So Ciasca’s text, following Vat. ms.  But this is probably a clerical error for the reading of Borg. ms., which omits ye.


    2573 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] 2574

    2574 John x. 39.

    And they sought again to take him:  and he went forth out of their hands.

    [43] 2575

    2575 John x. 40.

    And he went beyond Jordan to the place where John was baptizing formerly; [44] and abode there.  2576

    2576 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 truth2577

    2577 John x. 42.

    And many believed in him.

    [46] 2578

    2578 John xi. 1.

    And there was a sick man, named Lazarus, of the village of Bethany, the brother [47] of Mary and Martha2579

    2579 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.2580

    2580 cf. Peshitta.


    2581 John xi. 3.

    And his sisters sent unto Jesus, and said unto him, Our [49] Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick2582

    2582 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.  2583

    2583 John xi. 5.

    And Jesus loved Martha, and Mary, and Lazarus2584

    2584 John xi. 6.

    And when he [52] heard that he was sick, he abode in the place where he was two days.  2585

    2585 John xi. 7.

    And after that, [53] he said unto his disciples, Come, let us go into Judæa.  2586

    2586 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] 2587

    2587 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 world2588

    2588 John xi. 10.

    But if [56] a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no lamp in him.  2589

    2589 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.  2590

    2590 John xi. 12.

    His disciples said unto him, Our Lord, if he hath [58] fallen asleep, he will recover2591

    2591 John xi. 13.

    But Jesus said that concerning his death:  while they [59] supposed that he spake of lying down to sleep2592

    2592 John xi. 14.

    Then Jesus said unto them plainly, [60] Lazarus is dead.  2593

    2593 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.  2594

    2594 John xi. 16.

    Thomas, who is called Thama,2595

    2595 The Syriac word for Twin.

    said to the disciples, his companions, Let us also go, and die with him.
