Chapter 21

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      After that Jesus showed himself again, at the sea of Tiberias. And on this wise showed he himself. There were together Simon Peter and Thomas, which is called Didymus: and Nathanael of Cana a city of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of the disciples. Simon Peter said unto them: I go a fishing. They said unto him: we also will go with thee. They went their way and entered into a ship straight way, and that night caught they nothing. But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: nevertheless the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus said unto them: sirs, have ye any meat? They answered him, no. And he said unto them: cast out the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast out, and *anon they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
      Then said the disciple whom Jesus loved unto Peter: It is the Lord. When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his mantle to him (for he was naked) and sprang into the sea. The other disciples came by ship for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits, and they drew the net with fishes. As soon as they were come to land, they saw hot coals and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus said unto them: bring of the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter stepped forth and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty three. And for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. Jesus said unto them: come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him: what art thou? For they knew that it was the Lord. Jesus then came and took bread, and gave them, and fish likewise. *Ans this is now the third time that Jesus appeared to his disciples, after that he was risen again from death.
      When they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter: Simon Joanna, lovest thou me more than these? He said unto him: yes Lord thou knowest, that I love thee. He said unto him: feed my lambs. He said to him again the second time: Simon Joanna, lovest thou me? He said unto him: ye Lord thou knowest that I love thee. He said unto him: feed my sheep. He said unto him the third time: Simon Joanna, lovest thou me? And Peter sorrowed because he said to him the third time, lovest thou me, and said unto him: Lord thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus said unto him: feed my sheep.
      Verily, verily I say unto thee, when thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou art old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and lead thee whither thou wouldest not. That spake he signifying by what death he should glorify God.
      And when he had said thus, he said to him follow me. Peter turned about, and saw that disciple whom Jesus loved following: which also leaned on his breast at supper and said: Lord which is he that shall betray thee? When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus: Lord what shall he here do? Jesus said unto him: If I will have him to tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. Then went this saying 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 tarry till I come, what is that to thee? The same disciple is he, which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things. And we know, that his testimony is true. There are also many other things which Jesus did the which if they should be written every one I suppose the world could not contain the books that should be written.
