- But Jesus went to the mount of Olives.
- And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him;
and he sat down and taught them.
- And the scribes and the Pharisees bring [to him] a woman taken in adultery, and having set her in the midst,
- they say to him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in the very act, committing adultery.
- Now in the law Moses has commanded us to stone such;
thou therefore, what sayest thou?
- But this they said proving him, that they might have [something] to accuse him [of].
But Jesus, having stooped down, wrote with his finger on the ground.
- But when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up and said to them, Let him that is without sin among you first cast the stone at her.
- And again stooping down he wrote on the ground.
- But they, having heard [that], went out one by one beginning from the elder ones until the last;
and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing there.
- And Jesus, lifting himself up and seeing no one but the woman, said to her, Woman, where are those thine accusers?
Has no one condemned thee?
- And she said, No one, sir.
And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
- Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world;
he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
- The Pharisees therefore said to him, Thou bearest witness concerning thyself;
thy witness is not true.
- Jesus answered and said to them, Even if I bear witness concerning myself, my witness is true, because I know whence I came and whither I go: but ye know not whence I come and whither I go.
- Ye judge according to the flesh, I judge no one.
- And if also I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the Father who has sent me.
- And in your law too it is written that the testimony of two men is true:
- I am [one] who bear witness concerning myself, and the Father who has sent me bears witness concerning me.
- They said to him therefore, Where is thy Father?
Jesus answered, Ye know neither me nor my Father.
If ye had known me, ye would have known also my Father.
- These words spoke he in the treasury, teaching in the temple;
and no one took him, for his hour was not yet come.
- He said therefore again to them, I go away, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sin;
where I go ye cannot come.
- The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, that he says, Where I go ye cannot come?
- And he said to them, Ye are from beneath;
I am from above.
Ye are of this world;
I am not of this world.
- I said therefore to you, that ye shall die in your sins;
for unless ye shall believe that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.
- They said therefore to him, Who art thou?
[And] Jesus said to them, Altogether that which I also say to you.
- I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but he that has sent me is true, and I, what I have heard from him, these things I say to the world.
- They knew not that he spoke to them of the Father.
- Jesus therefore said to them, When ye shall have lifted up the Son of man, then ye shall know that I am [he], and [that] I do nothing of myself, but as the Father has taught me I speak these things.
- And he that has sent me is with me;
he has not left me alone, because I do always the things that are pleasing to him.
- As he spoke these things many believed on him.
- Jesus therefore said to the Jews who believed him, If ye abide in my word, ye are truly my disciples;
- and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
- They answered him, We are Abraham's seed, and have never been under bondage to any one;
how sayest thou, Ye shall become free?
- Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Every one that practises sin is the bondman of sin.
- Now the bondman abides not in the house for ever: the son abides for ever.
- If therefore the Son shall set you free, ye shall be really free.
- I know that ye are Abraham's seed;
but ye seek to kill me, because my word has no entrance in you.
- I speak what I have seen with my Father, and ye then do what ye have seen with your father.
- They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus says to them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham;
- but now ye seek to kill me, a man who has spoken the truth to you, which I have heard from God: this did not Abraham.
- Ye do the works of your father.
They said [therefore] to him, We are not born of fornication;
we have one father, God.
- Jesus said to them, If God were your father ye would have loved me, for I came forth from God and am come [from him];
for neither am I come of myself, but *he* has sent me.
- Why do ye not know my speech?
Because ye cannot hear my word.
- Ye are of the devil, as [your] father, and ye desire to do the lusts of your father.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaks falsehood, he speaks of what is his own;
for he is a liar and its father:
- and because I speak the truth, ye do not believe me.
- Which of you convinces me of sin?
If I speak truth, why do ye not believe me?
- He that is of God hears the words of God: therefore ye hear [them] not, because ye are not of God.
- The Jews answered and said to him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan and hast a demon?
- Jesus answered, I have not a demon;
but I honour my Father, and ye dishonour me.
- But I do not seek my own glory: there is he that seeks and judges.
- Verily, verily, I say unto you, If any one shall keep my word, he shall never see death.
- The Jews therefore said to him, Now we know that thou hast a demon.
Abraham has died, and the prophets, and thou sayest, If any one keep my word, he shall never taste death.
- Art thou greater than our father Abraham, who has died?
and the prophets have died: whom makest thou thyself?
- Jesus answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father who glorifies me, [of] whom ye say, He is our God.
- And ye know him not;
but I know him;
and if I said, I know him not, I should be like you, a liar.
But I know him, and I keep his word.
- Your father Abraham exulted in that he should see my day, and he saw and rejoiced.
- The Jews therefore said to him, Thou hast not yet fifty years, and hast thou seen Abraham?
- Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
- They took up therefore stones that they might cast [them] at him;
but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple, [going through the midst of them, and thus passed on.]
