21:1 After these things Yehoshua (יהושע) shewed himself again to the talmidim at the sea of Tiberias (Τιβεριάς); and on this way He showed Himself.
21:2 There were together Shim'on Kĕfa, and Thomas called Didumos (twins), and Natana'el of Kanah in Galil, and Bnei Zavdai, and two other of His Talmidim.
Shim'on Kĕfa said to them,
I go a fishing.
They say to him,
We also go with you.
They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
21:4 But when the morning was now come, Yehoshua (יהושע) stood on the shore: but the talmidim knew not that it was Yehoshua (יהושע).
21:5 Then Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them,
Children, have you any fish?
They answered him,
21:6 And Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them,
Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
21:7 Therefore that the talmidim whom Yehoshua (יהושע) loved (agapao) said to Kefa, It is Adonay. Now when Shim'on Kĕfa heard that it was Adonay, he girt [his] fisher's coat [to him], (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
21:8 And the other talmidim came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and Lechem.
21:10 Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them:
Bring of the fish which you have now caught.
21:11 Shim'on Kĕfa went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
21:12 Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them:
"Come and dine". Yet none of the Talmidim dared to question Him, "Who are You? knowing that it was Adonay.
21:13 Yehoshua (יהושע) then came and took the lechem, and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.
21:14 This is now the third time that Yehoshua (יהושע) was manifested to His Talmidim, after having been raised from the dead.
21:15 So when they had dined,
Yehoshua (יהושע) said to Shim'on Kĕfa:
Shimon Bar-Yochanan, Do you agapao (love) Me more than these?
He said to Him:
Yes, Adonay; You know that I phileo (care, love) for You.
He said to him,
Feed (Bosko) My lambs (arnion).
Yehoshua (יהושע) said to him again the second time:
Shimon Bar-Yochanan , Do you agapao (love) Me?
He said to him:
Yes, Adonay (Kurios); You know that I phileo (love, care) for You.
He said to him:
Shepherd (Poimaino) My Sheep (probaton).
Yehoshua (יהושע) said to him the third time:
Shimon Bar-Yochanan, Do you phileo (care, love) for Me?
Kefa was grieved (lupeo) because He said to him the third time, Do you phileo (care, love) for Me?
And he said to Him:
"Adonay (Kurios), You know all things; You know that I phileo (care, love) for You."
Yehoshua (יהושע) said to him:
Feed (bosko) My Sheep (probaton).
21:18 Amein, Amein, I say to you:
When you were younger, you used gird yourself, and walk wherever you wish: but when you grow old, you will stretch forth your hands, and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.
21:19 This He spoke, signifying by what death he should glorify Elohim (אלוה). And when he had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me."
21:20 Then Kefa, turning about, sees the talmidim whom Yehoshua (יהושע) loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Master, who is the one who betrays You?
21:21 Kefa seeing him said to Yehoshua (יהושע), Master, and what about this man?
21:22 Yehoshua(יהושע) said to him:
"If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me."
21:23 Then went this saying went out among the brethren, that this talmidim would not die. Yet Yehoshua (יהושע) did not say to him that he would not die, but "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you?"
21:24 This is the talmidim which testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
21:25 And there are also many other things which Yehoshua (יהושע) did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even Olam Hazeh itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amein.
