John 21


21:1 After these things Jesus showed himself again to the
 disciples at the sea of Tiberias: and in this manner did he
 show [himself].
21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus,
 and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the [sons] of Zebedee,
 and two others of his disciples.
21:3 Simon Peter saith to them, I go a fishing. They say to him,
 We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a boat
 immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
21:4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the
 shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
21:5 Then Jesus saith to them, Children, have ye any victuals?
 They answered him, No.
21:6 And he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the
 boat, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were
 not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith to Peter, It
 is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
 he girt [on] his fisher's coat, (for he was naked) and cast
 himself into the sea.
21:8 And the other disciples came in a little boat (for they
 were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits)
 dragging the net with fishes.
21:9 As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of
 coals there, and fish laid upon them, and bread.
21:10 Jesus saith to them, Bring of the fish which ye have now
 caught.
21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of
 great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and
 notwithstanding there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
21:12 Jesus saith to them, Come [and] dine. And none of the
 disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the
 Lord.
21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and
 fish likewise.
21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed himself to
 his disciples, after he had risen from the dead.
21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon
 [son] of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith to
 him, Yes, Lord: thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him,
 Feed my lambs.
21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon [son] of
 Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith to him, Yes, Lord: thou knowest
 that I love thee. He saith to him, Feed my sheep.
21:17 He saith to him the third time, Simon [son] of Jonas,
 lovest thou me? Peter was grieved, because he said to him the
 third time, Lovest thou me? And he said to him, Lord, thou
 knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith
 to him, Feed my sheep.
21:18 Verily, verily, I say to thee, When thou wast young, thou
 didst gird thyself and walk 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 wouldst
 not.
21:19 This he spoke, signifying by what death he should glorify
 God. And when he had spoken this, he saith to him, Follow me.
21:20 Then Peter turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus
 loved, following; (who also leaned on his breast at supper, and
 said, Lord, who is he that betrayeth thee?)
21:21 Peter seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what [shall]
 this man [do]?
21:22 Jesus saith to him, If I will that he shall tarry till I
 come, what [is that] to thee? Follow thou me.
21:23 Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that that
 disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not to him, He shall
 not die; but, if I will that he shall tarry till I come, what
 [is that] to thee?
21:24 This is the disciple who testifieth of these things, and
 wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did,
 which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even
 the world itself could not contain the books that would be
 written. Amen.
