John 7:27-53 In The KJV And AWPR Versions

John 7:27-53

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue

Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow

My Comments are in Green

27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.   (KJV)

27)   But this one we know and are acquainted with
         from where - from what place He is.

         Then  whensoever the Christ - the Messhiach - the Messiah

         comes forth so as to make a public appearance,
         no one knows - understands - comprehends
         from where - from what place He is.

28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.   (KJV)

28)   Therefore - Accordingly,  orally teaching and instructing 
         in the Temple, Jesus loudly and hoarsely exclaimed,
         and laying down definite words, saying,
              'And Me you know and are acquainted with.

               Also, you know and are acquainted with 

               from where - from what place (I have) come to be;
               and from Myself I have certainly not
               come forth so as to make a public appearance.

               But He is true - genuine - One who cannot lie,

               He sending and dispatching Me forth out,
               who you certainly do not know nor are acquainted with.

29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.   (KJV)

29)   I then know and (am) acquainted with with and understand 
         Him,  because from Him (I have) come to be

         [Note: Speaking of the incarnation of Himself into the 
                     world through His virgin birth at Bethlehem
                     and his subsequent time spent in the clothing of 
                     humanity among humanity from the womb to this point.]

        and that One has sent Me forth out.

30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.    (KJV)

30)    Accordingly - Therefore  they sought and strove to find Him

          [Note:  They rushed into the crowds - multitudes in the 
                      direction from which they heard His voice, but He was out
                      of view.  Jesus - Yeshua regularly taught specifically
                      in or along Solomon's Porch just south of the Eastern Gate.]

          to take and squeeze - to seize and hold fast,
          and not even one  threw - cast   the hand upon Him,
          because the hour of Him had certainly not yet 
          come forth to make its public appearance
          [ - the hour of Him was not yet manifest].

31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?   (KJV)

31)   Many then,  out of the crowd - multitude
         believed - trusted into Him,
         having laid down definite words and said,
             'Because the Christ - the Messhiach - the Messiah,
              when He comes forth so as to make a public appearance,
              perhaps not more  plenteous - more numerous 
              miraculous signs (having a spiritual purpose) 
              than these will He  do - make - cause - bring about - perform
              (than) which - (than) what    this One
              did - made - caused - brought about - performed?'

32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.    (KJV)

32)   The Pharisees listened intently and heard the crowd - multitude
          muttering in low and indistinct voices and words
          round about these things concerning Him;
          and the Pharisees and the first priests - the chief priests
          sent away forth out under officers

          [officers as attendants of junior rank who acted as Temple 
            Police in an official and legal capacity]* 

          in order that they might seize Him.

33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.   (KJV)             

33)   Accordingly - Therefore  Jesus - Yeshua  said to them,
              'Yet (I have) come to be  a small - little  time 
               in the midst of - with - among  you,
               and I go away (out of sight)
               up to, alongside and with  the (One)
               sending forth and dispatching Me.                        


34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.   (KJV)

34)        You will seek and strive to find Me,
              and will certainly not find by search or inquiry;
              and where - in what place  I (have) come to be - I am,
              you are certainly not able - empowered - capable
              to come forth and publicly appear.'                

35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?   (KJV)

35)   Accordingly - Therefore the Judeans said up alongside with
              'Where -   In what place   is this person (about) to
               pass through and go to  - pass through and depart to,
               that we will certainly not find Him
               whether by search or inquiry?

               Perhaps He is about to pass through and go to
               the Hellenes - the Greeks,
               into the Diaspora - the Dispersion
               [of the tribes of Israel]
               to also orally teach - orally instruct 
               the Hellenes - the Greeks?

36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?   (KJV)

36)    What is this intelligent word / reason which He said,
               'You will seek and strive to find Me,
              and will certainly not find by search or inquiry;
              and where - in what place  I (have) come to be - I am,
              you are certainly not able - empowered - capable
              to come forth and publicly appear?'      

37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.   (KJV)

37)    Then in the Last - (most extreme) End Day,
           the great   [the greatest]  of the Festival -the Feast 
           [of Tabernacles  - of Booths],
           and Jesus - Yeshua   
           hoarsely and loudly exclaimed
            laying down definite words saying,
                'If anyone be dry and thirst,
                 let him come forth publicly  up alongside with Me
                 and drink.

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.    (KJV)

38)         He believing and trusting into Me,
               according to as the Scripture said,
                   "Rivers - Streams of drinking
                    out of the innermost hollow

    [LXX  alternative Greek to English  options:

              Out of the Belly:   Numbers 5:22, Psalm 22:14, Jonah 2:2
                   or the preferred by me, which is 

              Out of the Heart:  Job 15:35, Psalm 40:8, Proverbs 20:27
                   However, the spear wound at the Cross in fact
                   takes in BOTH applications to Jesus Christ as viable
                   together.   Cf. John 19:33-34.]      

                  of Him will flow  [as though uttering forth endless words]
                  living  [and running]  water.'


39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)    (KJV)

39)   Then this He said round about - concerning the Spirit,
         whom those believing and trusting into Him 
         were at the point of and about to take and receive,
         for (the) Holy Spirit was not as yet
         [come down and arrived from Heaven]

         because Jesus - Yeshua was not as yet 
         glorified - honored and exalted 
         [resurrected and ascended into Heaven].

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.    (KJV)

40)    Therefore - Accordingly,  many of the crowd - multitude
          hearing the intelligent word and listening intently 
          laid down definite words and said,
              'This is in truth - truly - certainly  THE Prophet.'

          Others laid down definite words and said,
              'This is THE Christ - THE Messhiach - THE Messiah.'

41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?**    (KJV)

41)   Then others laid down definite words and said,
              'Perhaps not, because out of the Galilee 
               the Christ comes forth and makes a public appearance?**


42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?   (KJV)                     

42)        Has the Scripture certainly not said that out of the 
              sperm - seed of David  and from Bethlehem,
              the outlying  village - town - city (without walls)
              where - in what place    David was,
              the Christ - the Messhiach - the Messiah
              comes forth and makes a public appearance?'

[Note:  Cf. 2 Samuel 7:12-16, Micah 5:2.]    

43 So there was a division among the people because of him.   (KJV)           

43)    Accordingly - Therefore    a schism - a tearing factionalism
          came into being -  occurred    in the    crowd - multitude
          through / because of     Him.                                 

44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.    (KJV)                                     

44)    Then some - Then a part (or group)      out of them
          willed - wished - desired 
          to take and squeeze - to hold fast and seize   Him,
          but not even one threw or cast the hands upon Him.

45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?    (KJV)                  

45)    Accordingly - Therefore  the under officers             
          [officers as attendants of junior rank who acted as Temple 
           Police in an official and legal capacity]* 
          came forth publicly up alongside with the 
          first priests - chief priests  and Pharisees,
          and said to them, those (that were) there,
              'Through what - Through which      (reason) 
               did you certainly not   
               remove - carry - bring - lead   Him?'

46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.   (KJV)                 

46)   The under officers 
           [officers as attendants of junior rank who acted as Temple 
           Police in an official and legal capacity]*            
           answered discreetly,
              'Not even ever - Never    so in this manner  (has) 
               a man spoken at random as this man!'

47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?   (KJV)          

47)   Accordingly - Therefore  the Pharisees judgingly answered them,
             'Perhaps not also you 
              have been caused to wander astray - have been deceived?

48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?   (KJV)      

48)       (It is) Likely not any out of the rulers 
             have believed or trusted into Him, 
             or out of the Pharisees.

49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.   (KJV)              

49)       But this crowd - this multitude,
             perhaps not knowing and understanding the Law,
             are cusred upon!'                      

50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)   (KJV)                          

50)   Nicodemus [the chief rabbi of all eretz Israel outside Jerusalem]
         -- he having come forth so as to make a public appearance (by)
             night up alongside with Him, being one out of themselves --
         lays down definite words and says up alongside with them,          

51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?    (KJV)                      

51)       'Perhaps the Law of us does not discern and judge the man
             if not (first) - unless   it hear and listen intently from him
             and know by inquiry and examination
             what he does - works - performs - causes - brings about?'         

52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.    (KJV)               

52)   They judgingly answered and said to him, 
              'Perhaps you are not also out of Galilee?
               Search out - Investigate,
               and behold and see,
               because a prophet has not been raised
               out of the Galilee.'                  

[Note: Here the Pharisees egregiously erred.  The prophet Jonah, who was swallowed by a sperm whale or like creature,

 was raised out of the Galilee at Gath-hepher (2 Kings 14:25), just 3 miles north of Nazareth.  Nazareth of Galilee was where Jesus was brought up after being born in Bethlehem, being taken to Egypt to flee from Herod, and then some weeks later being brought back to Jerusalem to be dedicated at the Temple, before being taken to and settling in Nazareth only days after his dedication and recognition as the promised Messiah by two old ones at over 100 years old each, Simeon and Anna, there at the Temple.]                   

53 And every man went unto his own house.   (KJV)             

53)   And they passed through and went,
        each and every one into his (own) house.

End Notes:

*Verses 32, 45, 46   "Under Officers"

A tier of where the Under Officers of the Temple were in regards to the authority tier can be reconstructed based on Tosefta’s Horayot 2:8-10, the Gospels, and the histories left us by  Josephus.  It appears to me that the tier of authority for the Holy Temple will probably normally place the Temple Police under officers at number 9 in the authority tier at the Temple, unless acting on the authority of whatever higher up's tier in the authority and task of the moment, temporarily then placing them secondly after whosoever assigns them; and thereafter likely returning to the tier in which I list below until such another temporary occasion of temporary new found authority for the moment or task arises.    

1) High Priest (appointed by lot through the Sanhedrin)
2) Priest over Temple garments and artifacts (appointed by the Sanhedrin)
3) Priest of War (Commander of the Trumpets)
4) Vice Priest (primarily Administrative)
5) Military Commanders of the Temple Police (answer to war priest)
6) Senior Priests (upper administrative, who also deem if object is “kosher” or “traif ”), these are inclusive of the “first-priests” who are senior Levitical priests and those members of the Small Sanhedrin of 23 (Sanhedrin Katan) or the Great Jerusalem Sanhedrin of 70 under the High Priest (the Sanhedrin Gadol).  The Sanhedrin usually met in a sanctified area of the Temple, making  them necessitated to have been Levites during the time of the Temple’s operation, which is not required once the Temple was destroyed and in times since, as it is not yet rebuilt.      
7) Temple Task-masters
8) Temple Accountants and Treasurers (lower administrative)
9) Temple Police or under-officers, with the authority to kill any who violate the sanctity or security of the Holy Area of the Temple, where no Gentile (even converts to Judaism) may ever pass.  These were all required to be Levites, of the priestly class, and acted in a manner as professional police / soldier priests skilled in the ritualism of the priesthood as well as the arts of war and arrests.
10) Other Sanhedrin priests and rabbis (later called “wise ones” and “sages)
11) Lay Priests (ordinary priests, but set aside as “special”, the sons of Aaron)             during the serving of their appointed courses at the Temple.

 ** Verse 41
       The answer is yes, in Isaiah 9:1-2  King James Version:

Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined   (Isaiah 9:1-2, KJV)
