Yoḥanan (John) 7:1-24 TS2009

And after this יהושע was walking in Galil, for He did not wish to walk in Yehuḏah, because the Yehuḏim were seeking to kill Him. And the festival of the Yehuḏim was near, the Festival of Sukkot. So His brothers said to Him, ‘Get away from here and go into Yehuḏah, so that Your taught ones also see the works that You are doing. For no one acts in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these works, show Yourself to the world. For even His brothers did not believe in Him. יהושע therefore said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. “It is impossible for the world to hate you, but it hates Me because I bear witness of it, that its works are wicked. “You go up to this festival. I am not yet going up to this festival, for My time has not yet been filled.” And having said this to them, He stayed in Galil. But when His brothers had gone up to the festival, then He also went up, not openly, but as it were in secret. The Yehuḏim, therefore, were seeking Him at the festival, and said, “Where is He?” And there was much grumbling about Him among the crowd. Some were saying, “He is good,” but others were saying, “No, but He is leading the crowd astray.” However, no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Yehuḏim. And about the middle of the festival יהושע went up into the Set-apart Place, and He was teaching. And the Yehuḏim were marvelling, saying, “How does this Man know letters, not having learned?” יהושע answered them and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone desires to do His desire, he shall know concerning the teaching, whether it is from Elohim, or whether I speak from Myself. “He who speaks from himself is seeking his own esteem, but He who seeks the esteem of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him. “Did not Mosheh give you the Torah? Yet not one of you does the Torah! Why do you seek to kill Me?” The crowd answered and said, “You have a demon, who seeks to kill You?” יהושע answered and said to them, “I did one work, and you all marvel. “Because of this Mosheh has given you the circumcision – though it is not from Mosheh, but from the fathers – and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath. If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the Torah of Mosheh should not be broken, are you wroth with Me because I made a man entirely well on the Sabbath?” Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.
