John 7:1-10,37-39 Reading the Passage

Come to Jesus for Spiritual Life – John 7:1-10,37-39

7 After this Jesus stayed in Galilee; he would not stay in Judaea, because the Jews sought to kill him. (2) Now the Jewish feast, the Feast of Tabernacles, was about to take place, (3) so Jesus’ brothers said to him, Leave here and go to Judaea, so that your disciples may see the works that you are doing. (4) No one who wants to be known publicly does anything in private. Since you are doing these things, make yourself known to the world. (5) (Not even his brothers believed in him.) (6) Jesus said to them, The right time for me has not yet come; but any time is right for you. (7) The world cannot hate you; but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil. (8) Go up to the Feast; I will not go up to this Feast; because the right time for me has not yet come. (9) After having said these things to them, he remained in Galilee. (10) But after his brothers had gone up to the Feast, then he also went up—not publicly, but secretly… (37) Now on the last day, the great day of the Feast, Jesus stood and cried out, If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. (38) Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, From within him shall flow rivers of living water. (39) Now he was referring to the Holy Spirit, whom they who believed in him were to receive; for the Spirit had not yet been given; because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
