Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.”</span></span> <span id="en-ESV-26214" class="text John-5-15"><sup class="versenum">15 </sup>The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him.</span> <span id="en-ESV-26215" class="text John-5-16"><sup class="versenum">16 </sup>And this was why the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath.</span><span id="en-ESV-26216" class="text John-5-17"><sup class="versenum">17 </sup>But Jesus answered them, <span class="woj">“My Father is working until now, and I am working.”</span></span></p> <p><span class="text John-5-18"><sup class="versenum">18 </sup>This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.</span></p> <p><span class="text John-5-19"><sup class="versenum">19 </sup>So Jesus said to them, <span class="woj">“Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.</span></span> <span id="en-ESV-26219" class="text John-5-20"><span class="woj"><sup class="ve"></sup></span></span></p>
