John 8

Whiston(i) 1 Now Jesus went unto the mount of Olives: 2 And in the morning he cometh again into the temple, and all the people came to him. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman taken in sin, and when they had set her in the midst. 4 The priests say unto him, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him, Master this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 But Moses in the law commanded, to stone such women, But what sayst thou now? 6 But Jesus stooped down, and with [his] finger wrote on the ground. 7 So when they continued asking, he lift up himself and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. 9 But every one of the Jews went out, beginning at the eldest, till all were gone out: and Jesus was left alone, the woman being in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lift up himself, he said to the woman, Where are those men? hath no one condemned thee? 11 And she said to him, No one Lord. But he said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee; go away, and from this time sin no more. 12 Jesus therefore spake again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me, shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of they self, thy record is not true. 14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of my self, my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, or whither I go. 15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no one. 16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and he that sent me. 17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am one that bear witness of my self, and the Father that sent me, beareth witness of me. 19 Therefore said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. 20 These words he spake in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no one seized on him, for his hour was not yet come. 21 Then said he again unto them, I go away and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go ye cannot come. 22 The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go ye cannot come. 23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath, But I am from above: ye are of this world, I am not of this world. 24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your Sins: for if ye believe not me that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins. 25 They therefore said unto him, Who art thou? Jesus therefore said unto them, Even [he] that I said unto you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to say, and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard of him. 27 They understood not that he said God was his Father. 28 Jesus said unto them again, When ye shall have lift up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am [he]; and I do nothing of my self; but as the Father hath taught me, I speak these things 29 And he that sent me, is with me: He hath not left me alone: for I do always those things that please him. 30 As he spake these words, many believed on him. 31 Jesus therefore said to those Jews who had believed on him, If ye will continue in my word, ye are my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him and said, We be Abrahams seed, and were never in bondage to any one: how sayst thou, Ye shall be made free? 34 Jesus answered them, Verily verily I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin, is a servant, 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37 I know that ye are Abrahams seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 What things I have seen with my Father, Those I speak; and what things ye have seen with your father, those ye do. 39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus therefore said unto them, If ye were Abrahams children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which he hath heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 But ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, God, 42 Jesus therefore said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth, and came from God; for I came not of my self but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he was a murderer of men from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 Because I tell the truth, ye believe me not. 46 -- 47 He that is of God, heareth Gods words: ye therefore hear [them] not. 48 The Jews, answered and said unto him, Say we not well, that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a daemon? 49 Jesus answered, I have not a daemon; but I honour my Father, and ye dishonour me. 50 But I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 51 Verily verily I say unto you, whosoever observeth my saying, he shall never see death. 52 The Jews therefore said unto him, Now we have known that thou hast a daemon. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayst, If a man observe my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53 Art thou greater than Abraham, who is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thy self? 54 Jesus answered, If I shall honour my self, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me, of whom ye say, that his is your God: 55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and If I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and observe his saying. 56 Your father Abraham rejoyced to see my day: and he saw [it], and was glad. 57 The Jews therefore said to him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 58 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily verily I say unto you, Before Abraham I am. 59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple, and so passed by.
