JOHN · Chapter 8
8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what says you?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those your accusers? has no man condemned you?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then spoke Jesus again unto 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.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, You bear record of yourself; your record is not true.
8:14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and where I go; but all of you cannot tell whence I come, and where I go.
8:15 All of you judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.
8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, All of you neither know me, nor my Father: if all of you had known me, all of you should have known my Father also.
8:20 These words spoke Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and all of you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: where I go, all of you cannot come.
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he says, Where I go, all of you cannot come.
8:23 And he said unto them, All of you are from beneath; I am from above: all of you are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:24 I said therefore unto you, that all of you shall die in your sins: for if all of you believe not that I am he, all of you shall die in your sins.
8:25 Then said they unto him, Who are you? And Jesus says unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:26 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 have heard of him.
8:27 They understood not that he spoke to them of the Father.
8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When all of you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall all of you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
8:30 As he spoke these words, many believed on him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If all of you continue in my word, then are all of you my disciples indeed;
8:32 And all of you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how says you, All of you shall be made free?
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abides ever.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, all of you shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that all of you are Abraham's seed; but all of you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.
8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and all of you do that which all of you have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus says unto them, If all of you were Abraham's children, all of you would do the works of Abraham.
8:40 But now all of you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
8:41 All of you do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, all of you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43 Why do all of you not understand my speech? even because all of you cannot hear my word.
8:44 All of you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father all of you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
8:45 And because I tell you the truth, all of you believe me not.
8:46 Which of you convinces me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do all of you not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God hears God's words: all of you therefore hear them not, because all of you are not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan, and have a devil?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and all of you do dishonour me.
8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeks and judges.
8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that you have a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you says, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom make you yourself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom all of you say, that he is your God:
8:55 Yet all of you 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 keep his saying.
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
