John 10:19-42 in the KJV and AWPR Versions

John 10:19-42

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue

Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow
My Comments are in Green

19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.   

19)    Accordingly - Therefore,  a schism - a division
         (once) again came into being    in the Judeans
         through these intelligent words.

20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?    (KJV)             

20)   Then many out of them  laid down definite words, and said,
               'He has - holds - possesses ( and continues to possess)
                a demon, and is ravingly insane!'

               'Why do you hear and listen intently to him?'



21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?     (KJV)           

21)  Others (of the same kind) laid down definite words, and said,
            'These, the statements - sayings - teachings - words
             are certainly not of someone who is 
             demon possessed / possessed by a devil.'

             'A demon certainly does not have the power -

              A demon certainly is not able
              to open open (the) eyes of blind ones.'

22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.   (KJV)            

22)   Then the New Consecration - New Dedication 
         [the Feast / Festival of Channukah]
         came into being in Jerusalem,
         and it was winter / and it was cold with frost.

23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.    (KJV)   

23)   And Jesus / Yeshua walked around and about in the Temple
        in the Porch of Solomon.                                           


24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.    (KJV)        

24)   Accordingly - Therefore  the Judeans 
         encircled - circled around (and surrounded) Him
         and laid down definite words and said to Him, 
             'Until what time / Until when / How long
              do you take up, bear and carry /  do you lift, raise, and 
              carry away
              the soul of us?'

             'If perhaps you are the Messiah / the Christ,

              tell us freely, plainly, and publicly!'                     

25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.   (KJV)                            

25)   Jesus / Yeshua  discerningly answered them,
             'I told you, and you certainly do not trust - believe.

              The work performances which I  

               do - make - cause - perform - bring about
               in the Name of the Father of Me,
               these witness - these bear testimony - these testify
               round about - concerning  Me.


26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.  (KJV)            

26)         But you certainly did not trust - believe
               because you are certainly not out of the 
               quadrupeds / Sheep      of Me.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:   (KJV)       

27)    According as I said to you,
          My quadrupeds - My Sheep   intently hear and listen to
          the voice of Me;
          and I know them (by inquiry and examination),
          and they accompany together and follow Me.       


28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.     (KJV)                                    

28)    And I of My own good will and accord give - bestow 
          to them perpetual eternal life.

          And certainly not perhaps not - And in no way

          shall they perish away - shall they be wholly destroyed -
          suffer complete loss
          into the Age;
          and certainly not anyone shall seize upon and 
          snatch them away     out of the hand of Me.

29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.    (KJV)            

29)   The Father of Me,
         who of His own good will and accord has given (them) to Me,
         is greater - more  than all;
         and certainly not even one - and certainly no one 
         is able - is capable - is empowered
         to violently take and seize out of the hand of the Father of Me.

30 I and my Father are one.       (KJV)          

30)   I and Father, we are One -  I and Father, we are Ehad.'

[The reference of Jesus / Yeshua to the title of Messiah (which is to one called YHVeH in the Hebrew of  Lamentations 4:20) is in the affirmative that He is both Messiah and YHVeH.  The reference of  "we are" / "esmen"  One , in the Greek passage of the New Testament here,  is to explain the plurality of persons within the singularity of GOD in the Sh'ma, where GOD calls Himself "One", which is a direct reference to the  Hebrew "ehad" of Deuteronomy 6:4 - 
Sh'ma Yisrael, YHVeH elohaynoo, YHVeH ehad' - 

'Hear and listen intently Israel:
  YHVeH your GOD, YHVeH is One.'

To which the companion verse in Jewish theology is:
  “And it is (to be) said, IN THAT DAY,
YHVeH will be King over all the Earth

 (and all that therein is);
YHVeH shall be ONE (united), 

and His NAME: ‘ONE’ !”  
(Zechariah 14:9 - AWPR)

 Jesus, who comes in the NAME of the Father, YHVeH, unmistakenly identifies Himself as YHVeH,  the GOD of Israel:  the GOD of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, who also spoke to Moses out of the Burning Bush and from atop Mount Sinai to all Israel at their Exodus from Egypt, et cetera.  To the rabbinic ear, there was no doubt as to what Jesus / Yeshua either meant or implied...He identified Himself both as Messiah and GOD in clear and concise language with great brevity.  The confusion to the modern anti-Yeshua rabbi comes when they try to humanize the identity of King Messiah, which the Scriptures identify must be YHVeH Himself, in order to steal away His kingdom, exclude Him, and spiritually (but also literally after a sense) claim the Earth for their own, because their Judah ha-Nasi and ff. derived Oral Torah (which is a claim at times to replace Scriptures) informs those who follow it over the Scriptures that any king who exalts Himself above the Sanhedrin, even YHVeH Himself of Psalm 10:16, is to them a robber.  Which leads us, who are enlightened through Yeshua,  to the parable of  Matthew 21:33-41.]                                    

31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.     (KJV)     

31)    Therefore - Accordingly, again the Judeans took up, bore, 
          and held stones    in order that   they might stone Him.

32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?     (KJV)                     

32)    Jesus discerningly answered them,
              'Many - A great number of     work performances
               I  (by exhibition or display) showed you 
               from the Father of Me;
               through what one - through which one 
               work performance   do you stone Me?'

33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.     (KJV)                                            

33)    The Judeans judgingly answered Him, 
          laying down definite words, saying,
               'Round about - Concerning a good work performance
                we certainly do not stone You.
                But round about - concerning blasphemy;
                and because  You, being a man, 
                make Yourself GOD.'

34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?   

34)    Jesus answered them,
             'Is it certainly not having been engraved - inscribed - written 
              in the Law of you,
                  "I said, you are gods?" ' 

35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;    (KJV)       

35)   If perhaps --
         and the Scriptures are  certainly not 
         able - empowered  to be unfastened (and broken), 
         nor loosened (and  dissolved) or unbound (and done away with)   --
         those ones there,
         He called "gods"   up alongside with whom 
         the word of GOD came into being, 


36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?     (KJV)             

36)  whom the Father set apart and consecrated as Sacred 
        and sent forth out   into the world (of man - of mankind):

        you lay down definite words and say,
         "That blasphemy!", 
         because I said (I) am (the) Son of GOD?

37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.       (KJV)         

37)   If perhaps I certainly not 
         do - make - perform - cause - bring about
         the work performances of the Father of Me,
         you may not       believe - trust into  Me.   

38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.      (KJV)       

38)   If perhaps I do - make - cause - perform - bring about,
         even if Me you may not believe - trust into, 
         believe - trust into the work performances,
         in order that you may know (by examination and inquiry)
         and may believe - trust   the Father   (is) in Me, 
         and I in Him.'                 

39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,         (KJV)        

39)   They sought - strove    accordingly - therefore     again,
         [as a group in unison]  
         to press down and lay hold upon / to tackle  -  (to rush upon) 
         and seize, laying hold of and compressing down upon     Him.

         And He went forth - escaped  out of the hand of them.

40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.      (KJV)              

40)   And He withdrew - departed and went away    again
         beyond the Jordan   into the place 
         where John was at the first baptizing 
         [fully immersing others by ritual into living / flowing waters];
         and dwelled - lived - remained - waited   there.

41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.           (KJV)      

41)  And many came forth (so as to publicly appear)
       up alongside with Him,
       and laid down definite words and said,
           'Indeed, John did not 
            do - make - perform - cause - bring about    
            not even a sign (having a spiritual end or purpose) 
            or miracle;
            then, all things  as many as  John said 
            concerning - round about this One were true.


42 And many believed on him there.         (KJV)         

42)  And many believed - trusted into Him in that place there.
