Bible, Ethician Version
 In the
beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by God; and without God was not any thing made that was made.
 In God was life; and the life was the light of men.
 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
 And the
Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
 For every
one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his
deeds should be reproved.
 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 God is a Spirit:
and they that worship God must worship him in spirit and in truth.
 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
 For there is
no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known
openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
 Jesus went
unto the mount of Olives.
 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
 A new
commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,
that ye also love one another.
 When Jesus
had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron,
where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath.
 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.
 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the Passover.
 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to
you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend.
 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
 They cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priest answered.
 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be.
 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
 After this, Jesus saith, I thirst.
 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
 The first day
of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the
sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?
 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen Jesus, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
