John 21


John 21:1 After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way.
John 21:2 Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together.
John 21:3 Simon Peter said to them," I am going fishing." They said to him," We will also come with you." They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.
John 21:4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
John 21:5 So Jesus said to them," Children, you do not have any fish, do you?" They answered Him," No."
John 21:6 And He said to them," Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch." So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.
John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter," It is the Lord." So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea.
John 21:8 But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.
John 21:9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid and fish placed on it, and bread.
John 21:10 Jesus said to them," Bring some of the fish which you have now caught."
John 21:11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.
John 21:12 Jesus said to them," Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples ventured to question Him," Who are You?" knowing that it was the Lord.
John 21:13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and the fish likewise.
John 21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.
John 21:15 So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter," Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him," Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him," Tend My lambs."
John 21:16 He said to him again a second time," Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" He said to Him," Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him," Shepherd My sheep."
John 21:17 He said to him the third time," Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time," Do you love Me?" And he said to Him," Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him," Tend My sheep.
John 21:18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go."
John 21:19 Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him," Follow Me!"
John 21:20 Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said," Lord, who is the one who betrays You?"
John 21:21 So Peter seeing him said to Jesus," Lord, and what about this man?"
John 21:22 Jesus said to him," If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!"
John 21:23 Therefore this saying went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only," If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?"
John 21:24 This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.

John 21:1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. John 21:1 After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. John 21:1 μετὰ ταῦτα ἐφανέρωσεν ἑαυτὸν πάλιν ὁ ἰησοῦς τοῖς μαθηταῖς ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς τιβεριάδος· ἐφανέρωσεν δὲ οὕτως.

John 21:2 Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. John 21:2 ἦσαν ὁμοῦ σίμων πέτρος καὶ θωμᾶς ὁ λεγόμενος δίδυμος καὶ ναθαναὴλ ὁ ἀπὸ κανὰ τῆς γαλιλαίας καὶ οἱ τοῦ ζεβεδαίου καὶ ἄλλοι ἐκ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ δύο.
John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. John 21:3 Simon Peter said to them," I am going fishing." They said to him," We will also come with you." They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing. John 21:3 λέγει αὐτοῖς σίμων πέτρος, ὑπάγω ἁλιεύειν. λέγουσιν αὐτῶ, ἐρχόμεθα καὶ ἡμεῖς σὺν σοί. ἐξῆλθον καὶ ἐνέβησαν εἰς τὸ πλοῖον, καὶ ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ νυκτὶ ἐπίασαν οὐδέν.
John 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. John 21:4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. John 21:4 πρωΐας δὲ ἤδη γενομένης ἔστη ἰησοῦς εἰς τὸν αἰγιαλόν· οὐ μέντοι ᾔδεισαν οἱ μαθηταὶ ὅτι ἰησοῦς ἐστιν.
John 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. John 21:5 So Jesus said to them," Children, you do not have any fish, do you?" They answered Him," No." John 21:5 λέγει οὗν αὐτοῖς [ὁ] ἰησοῦς, παιδία, μή τι προσφάγιον ἔχετε; ἀπεκρίθησαν αὐτῶ, οὔ.
John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. John 21:6 And He said to them," Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch." So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish. John 21:6 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, βάλετε εἰς τὰ δεξιὰ μέρη τοῦ πλοίου τὸ δίκτυον, καὶ εὑρήσετε. ἔβαλον οὗν, καὶ οὐκέτι αὐτὸ ἑλκύσαι ἴσχυον ἀπὸ τοῦ πλήθους τῶν ἰχθύων.
John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter," It is the Lord." So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea. John 21:7 λέγει οὗν ὁ μαθητὴς ἐκεῖνος ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ ἰησοῦς τῶ πέτρῳ, ὁ κύριός ἐστιν. σίμων οὗν πέτρος, ἀκούσας ὅτι ὁ κύριός ἐστιν, τὸν ἐπενδύτην διεζώσατο, ἦν γὰρ γυμνός, καὶ ἔβαλεν ἑαυτὸν εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν·
John 21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. John 21:8 But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish. John 21:8 οἱ δὲ ἄλλοι μαθηταὶ τῶ πλοιαρίῳ ἦλθον, οὐ γὰρ ἦσαν μακρὰν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἀλλὰ ὡς ἀπὸ πηχῶν διακοσίων, σύροντες τὸ δίκτυον τῶν ἰχθύων.
John 21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. John 21:9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid and fish placed on it, and bread. John 21:9 ὡς οὗν ἀπέβησαν εἰς τὴν γῆν βλέπουσιν ἀνθρακιὰν κειμένην καὶ ὀψάριον ἐπικείμενον καὶ ἄρτον.
John 21:10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. John 21:10 Jesus said to them," Bring some of the fish which you have now caught." John 21:10 λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἐνέγκατε ἀπὸ τῶν ὀψαρίων ὧν ἐπιάσατε νῦν.
John 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. John 21:11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. John 21:11 ἀνέβη οὗν σίμων πέτρος καὶ εἵλκυσεν τὸ δίκτυον εἰς τὴν γῆν μεστὸν ἰχθύων μεγάλων ἑκατὸν πεντήκοντα τριῶν· καὶ τοσούτων ὄντων οὐκ ἐσχίσθη τὸ δίκτυον.
John 21:12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. John 21:12 Jesus said to them," Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples ventured to question Him," Who are You?" knowing that it was the Lord. John 21:12 λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, δεῦτε ἀριστήσατε. οὐδεὶς δὲ ἐτόλμα τῶν μαθητῶν ἐξετάσαι αὐτόν, σὺ τίς εἶ; εἰδότες ὅτι ὁ κύριός ἐστιν.
John 21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. John 21:13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and the fish likewise. John 21:13 ἔρχεται ἰησοῦς καὶ λαμβάνει τὸν ἄρτον καὶ δίδωσιν αὐτοῖς, καὶ τὸ ὀψάριον ὁμοίως.
John 21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.

He said to Him," Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him," Tend My lambs." John 21:15 ὅτε οὗν ἠρίστησαν λέγει τῶ σίμωνι πέτρῳ ὁ ἰησοῦς, σίμων ἰωάννου, ἀγαπᾷς με πλέον τούτων; λέγει αὐτῶ, ναί, κύριε, σὺ οἶδας ὅτι φιλῶ σε. λέγει αὐτῶ, βόσκε τὰ ἀρνία μου.
John 21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. John 21:16 He said to him again a second time," Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" He said to Him," Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him," Shepherd My sheep." John 21:16 λέγει αὐτῶ πάλιν δεύτερον, σίμων ἰωάννου, ἀγαπᾷς με; λέγει αὐτῶ, ναί, κύριε, σὺ οἶδας ὅτι φιλῶ σε. λέγει αὐτῶ, ποίμαινε τὰ πρόβατά μου.
John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. John 21:17 He said to him the third time," Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time," Do you love Me?" And he said to Him," Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him," Tend My sheep. John 21:17 λέγει αὐτῶ τὸ τρίτον, σίμων ἰωάννου, φιλεῖς με; ἐλυπήθη ὁ πέτρος ὅτι εἶπεν αὐτῶ τὸ τρίτον, φιλεῖς με; καὶ λέγει αὐτῶ, κύριε, πάντα σὺ οἶδας, σὺ γινώσκεις ὅτι φιλῶ σε. λέγει αὐτῶ [ὁ ἰησοῦς], βόσκε τὰ πρόβατά μου.
John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. John 21:18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go." John 21:18 ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω σοι, ὅτε ἦς νεώτερος, ἐζώννυες σεαυτὸν καὶ περιεπάτεις ὅπου ἤθελες· ὅταν δὲ γηράσῃς, ἐκτενεῖς τὰς χεῖράς σου, καὶ ἄλλος σε ζώσει καὶ οἴσει ὅπου οὐ θέλεις.
John 21:19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. John 21:19 Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him," Follow Me!" John 21:19 τοῦτο δὲ εἶπεν σημαίνων ποίῳ θανάτῳ δοξάσει τὸν θεόν. καὶ τοῦτο εἰπὼν λέγει αὐτῶ, ἀκολούθει μοι.
John 21:20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? John 21:20 Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said," Lord, who is the one who betrays You?" John 21:20 ἐπιστραφεὶς ὁ πέτρος βλέπει τὸν μαθητὴν ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ ἰησοῦς ἀκολουθοῦντα, ὃς καὶ ἀνέπεσεν ἐν τῶ δείπνῳ ἐπὶ τὸ στῆθος αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν, κύριε, τίς ἐστιν ὁ παραδιδούς σε;
John 21:21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? John 21:21 So Peter seeing him said to Jesus," Lord, and what about this man?" John 21:21 τοῦτον οὗν ἰδὼν ὁ πέτρος λέγει τῶ ἰησοῦ, κύριε, οὖτος δὲ τί;
John 21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. John 21:22 Jesus said to him," If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!" John 21:22 λέγει αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἐὰν αὐτὸν θέλω μένειν ἕως ἔρχομαι, τί πρὸς σέ; σύ μοι ἀκολούθει.
John 21:23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? John 21:23 Therefore this saying went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only," If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?" John 21:23 ἐξῆλθεν οὗν οὖτος ὁ λόγος εἰς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὅτι ὁ μαθητὴς ἐκεῖνος οὐκ ἀποθνῄσκει. οὐκ εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς ὅτι οὐκ ἀποθνῄσκει, ἀλλ᾽, ἐὰν αὐτὸν θέλω μένειν ἕως ἔρχομαι [, τί πρὸς σέ];
John 21:24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. John 21:24 This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true. John 21:24 οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ μαθητὴς ὁ μαρτυρῶν περὶ τούτων καὶ ὁ γράψας ταῦτα, καὶ οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἀληθὴς αὐτοῦ ἡ μαρτυρία ἐστίν.
John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written. John 21:25 ἔστιν δὲ καὶ ἄλλα πολλὰ ἃ ἐποίησεν ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἅτινα ἐὰν γράφηται καθ᾽ ἕν, οὐδ᾽ αὐτὸν οἶμαι τὸν κόσμον χωρῆσαι τὰ γραφόμενα βιβλία.
