The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.
King James Bible
And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
American Standard Version
But he that was healed knew not who it was; for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in the place.
Young's Literal Translation
But he that was healed had not known who he is, for Jesus did move away, a multitude being in the place.
John 5:13 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Jesus had conveyed himself away - Or, had withdrawn himself. And this he might easily do, as there was a crowd in the place. Some think the words indicate, that Jesus withdrew on seeing a multitude in the place, i.e. raising a tumult, because of the man's carrying his bed (margin: Or, from the multitude that was). He had not yet finished his work, and would not expose himself to the envy and malice of the Jewish rulers.
