10 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Joshua went up
11 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which
is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
12 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind,
halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
13 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and
troubled the water:
14 whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made
whole of whatsoever disease he had.
15 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty
and eight years.
16 When Joshua saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a
long time in that case, he saith unto him,
Wilt thou be made whole?
impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to
put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
18 Joshua saith unto him, Rise,
take up thy bed, and walk.
immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the
same day was the sabbath.
20 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the
sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
21 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto
me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
22 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee,
Take up thy bed, and walk?
23 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Joshua had
conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
24 Afterward Joshua findeth him in the temple, and said unto
Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
25 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Joshua,
which had made him whole.
