Jesus Speaks again in the Temple the
last day of the Feast. Some take
him for a Prophet; others not,

cause he came out of Galilee. They

seek again to lay bold on bim. John vii. 37 I

N the last day, that great day of the

feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me 38. and drink. He that believeth on me; as the Scripture hath

said, out of his bei.
39. ly shall flow rivers of living water. (But

this spake he of the Spirit, which they
that believe should receive, for the Ho-
ly Ghost was not yet given, because
that Jesus was not yet glorified) Many
of the people therefore, when they

heard this saying, said, Of a truth this
41. is the prophet. Others said, This is

the Christ. But some faid, Shall Christ
42. come out of Galilee? Hath not the Scrip-

ture said, that Christ cometh of the seed
of David, and out of the town of Bethle-
hem, where David was? So there was
a division among the people because
of him. And some of them would
have taken him; but no man laid hands

on him.


Then came Officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him? The officers answer'd, Never man Spake like thiş man. Then answered them
