The Temple.

John vii. 37.


Jefus Speaks again in the Temple the
Laft day of the Feast. Some take
him for a Prophet; others not, be-
cause he came out of Galilee. They
Seek again to lay hold on him.

Etat 32.
Minift. 3.

N the last day, that great day of the feaft, Jefus ftood and cried, faying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me 38. and drink. He that believeth on me,

as the Scripture bath faid, out of his bel 39. ly fhall flow rivers of living water. (But

this fpake he of the Spirit, which they that believe should receive, for the Holy Ghost was not yet given, because that Jefus was not yet glorified) Many of the people therefore, when they heard this faying, faid, Of a truth this 41. is the prophet. Others faid, This is


the Chrift. But fome faid, Shall Chrift 42. come out of Galilee? Hath not the Scrip


ture faid, that Chrift cometh of the feed
of David, and out of the town of Bethle-
hem, where David was? So there was
a divifion among the people because
of him. And fome of them would
have taken him; but no man laid hands
on him.



Then came Officers to the chief priests and Pharifees; and they faid unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

46. The officers anfwer'd, Never man pake

like this man. Then answered them



the Pharifees, Are ye alfo deceived? The Temple. Atat. 32. Have any of the Rulers or of the Pha-47. Joh. vii. Minift. 3. rifees believed on him? But this people 48. who knoweth not the Law are curfed. Nicodemus faith unto them, (He that so. came to Jefus by night, being one of them) Doth our Law judge any man be- 51. fore it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and faid unto him, 52. Art thou alfo of Galilee? Search and look; for out of Galilee arifeth no Prophet. And every man went to his own 53. house.

Olives: early in the morning 2. he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he far down, and taught them.

And the Scribes and Pharifees brought 3. unto him a woman taken in Adultery; and when they had fet her in the mids, They say unto him, Mafter, this wo-4. man was taken in adultery, in the very alt. Now Mofes in the Law command-s. ed us, that fuch fhould be ftoned; but what fayeft thou? This they faid, tempt-6. ing him, that they might have to accufe him. But Jefus tooped down. and with his finger wrote on the ground as tho' he heard them not.


So when they continued asking him, Anno
