[1] 15351535    Luke v. 12.And when Jesus came to a certain village, there drew near to him a leper, and fell at his feet, and besought him, and said unto him, If thou wilt, thou art able to [2] cleanse me.  15361536    Mark i. 41.And Jesus had mercy upon him, and stretched forth his hand, and [3] touched him, and said, I will cleanse15371537    Lit. to cleanse. thee.  15381538    Mark i. 42.And immediately his leprosy departed [4] from him, and he was cleansed.  15391539    Mark i. 43.And he sternly charged him, and sent him out, [5] [Arabic, p. 85] and said unto him, 15401540    Mark i. 44.See that thou tell not any man:  but go and shew thyself to the priests, and offer an offering for thy cleansing as Moses commanded [6] for their testimony.  15411541    Mark i. 45a.But he, when he went out, began to publish much, and spread abroad the news, so that Jesus could not enter into any of the cities openly, for the extent to which the report of him spread, but he remained without in a desert [7] place.  15421542    Luke v. 15.And much people came unto him from one place and another,15431543    This phrase does not occur in the Syriac versions (Cur. wanting), but is obviously a Syriac construction. to hear [8] his word, and that they might be healed of their pains.  15441544    Luke v. 16.And he used to withdraw from them into the desert, and pray.

[9] 15451545    John v. 1.And after that, was the feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

[10] 15461546    John v. 2.And there was in Jerusalem a place prepared for bathing,15471547    Or, baptism.  The phrase almost exactly reproduces the Syriac versions. which was called in [11] Hebrew the House of Mercy, having five porches.  15481548    John v. 3.And there were laid in them much people of the sick, and blind, and lame, and paralysed, waiting for the moving [12] of the water.  15491549    John v. 4.And the angel from time to time went down into the place of bathing,15501550    Or, baptism.  The phrase almost exactly reproduces the Syriac versions. and moved the water; and the first that went down after the moving [13] of the water, every pain that he had was healed.  15511551    John v. 5.And a man was there who had a [14] disease for thirty-eight years.  15521552    John v. 6.And Jesus saw this man laid, and knew15531553    Or, learned. that he had [15] been thus a long time; and he said unto him, Wouldest thou be made whole?  15541554    John v. 7.That diseased one answered and said, Yea, my Lord, I have no man, when the water moveth, to put me into the bathing-place; but when I come, another goeth down before [16, 17] me.  15551555    John v. 8.Jesus said unto him, Rise, take thy bed, and walk.  15561556    John v. 9.And immediately that man was healed; and he rose, and carried his bed, and walked.

[18] 15571557    John v. 10.And that day was a sabbath.  And when the Jews saw that healed one, they15581558    Vat. ms. has he. said [19] unto him, It is a sabbath:  thou hast no authority to carry thy bed.  15591559    John v. 11.And he answered and said unto them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take thy bed, [20] [Arabic, p. 86] and walk.  15601560    John v. 12.They asked him therefore, Who is this man that said unto thee, [21] Take thy bed, and walk?  15611561    John v. 13.But he that was healed knew not who it was; for Jesus had removed from that place to another, because of the press of the great multitude [22] which was in that place.  15621562    John v. 14.And after two days Jesus happened upon him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art whole:  sin not again, lest there come upon 78[23] thee what is worse than the first.  15631563    John v. 15.And that man went, and said to the Jews that it [24] was Jesus that had healed him.  15641564    John v. 16.And because of that the Jews persecuted Jesus and [25] sought to kill him, because he was doing this on the sabbath.  15651565    John v. 17.And Jesus said unto [26] them, My Father worketh until now, and I also work.  15661566    John v. 18.And because of this especially the Jews sought to kill him, not because he profaned the sabbath only; but for his saying also that God was his Father, and his making himself equal with God.  [27] 15671567    John v. 19.Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son cannot do anything of himself, but what he seeth the Father do; what the Father doeth, [28] that the Son also doeth like him.  15681568    John v. 20.The Father loveth his Son, and everything that he doeth he sheweth him:  and more than these works will he shew him, that ye [29] may marvel.  15691569    John v. 21.And as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, so the Son [30] also giveth life to whomsoever he will.  15701570    John v. 22.And the Father judgeth no man, but hath [31] given all judgement unto the Son; 15711571    John v. 23.that every man may honour the Son, as he honoureth the Father.  And he that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which [32] sent him.  15721572    John v. 24.Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever heareth my word, and believeth in him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgement, but passeth from [33] [Arabic, p. 87] death unto life.  15731573    John v. 25.Verily, verily, I say unto you, An hour shall come, and now is also, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and those [34] which hear shall live.  15741574    John v. 26.And as the Father hath life in himself,15751575    Borg. ms. reads his person. likewise he gave to [35] the Son also that he might have life in himself,15761576    Borg. ms. reads his person.  15771577    John v. 27.and authority to do judgement also, [36] because15781578    Lit. that; or, Verily. he is the Son of man.  15791579    John v. 28.Marvel not then at that:  I mean the coming of the hour when all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, and shall come forth:  [37] 15801580    John v. 29.those that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those that have done evil deeds, to the resurrection of judgement.

[38] 15811581    John v. 30.I am not able of myself to do anything; but as I hear, I judge:  and my judgement [39] is just; I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me.  15821582    John v. 31.I15831583    So Ciasca’s Arabic text.  Borg. ms. has If I, and instead of and so, etc., simply a witness which is not true, etc.; but its text of the next sentence is quite corrupt. bear witness [40] of myself, and so15841584    So Ciasca’s Arabic text.  Borg. ms. has If I, and instead of and so, etc., simply a witness which is not true, etc.; but its text of the next sentence is quite corrupt. my witness is not true.  15851585    John v. 32.It is another that beareth witness [41] of me; and I know that the witness which he beareth of me is true.  15861586    John v. 33.Ye have sent [42] unto John, and he hath borne witness of the truth.  15871587    John v. 34.But not from man do I seek [43] witness; but I say that ye may live.15881588    Or, be saved.  15891589    John v. 35.That15901590    Or, that (man). was a lamp which shineth and [44] giveth light:  and ye were pleased to glory now15911591    Were it not also in Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary (Brit. Mus. text) we should assume now to be a corruption of an original Arabic reading, for a season (cf. Syr.). in his light.  15921592    John v. 36.But I have witness greater than that of John:  the works which my Father hath given me to accomplish, [45] those works which I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.  15931593    John v. 37.And the Father which sent me, he hath borne witness of me.  Ye have neither heard his [46] voice at any time, nor seen his appearance.  15941594    John v. 38.And his word abideth not in you; because [47] in him whom he hath sent ye do not believe.  15951595    John v. 39.Search the scriptures, in which ye rejoice15961596    This word (often used by our translator) means in Syriac (transposed) believe, think, hope (cf. § 8, 8, note).
