5:3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.

5:5 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.

5:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time [in that case], he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
5:6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"

5:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
5:7 The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."

5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
5:8 Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk."

5:10 The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, "It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed."

5:11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
5:11 He answered them, "He who made me well said to me, 'Take up your bed and walk.' "

5:12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
5:12 Then they asked him, "Who is the Man who said to you, 'Take up your bed and walk'?"

5:13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in [that] place.
5:13 But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place.

5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
5:14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you."

5:16 For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath.

5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
5:17 But Jesus answered them, "My Father has been working until now, and I have been working."

5:19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.

5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
