John 8

8:1 Jesus went to the mount of Olives:
8:2 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.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman taken
 in adultery: and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 They say to 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 sayest thou?
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 raised himself, and
 said to 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 who heard [it], being convicted by [their own]
 conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest,
 [even] to the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman
 standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had raised himself, and saw none but the woman,
 he said to her, Woman, where are those thy accusers? hath no
 man condemned thee?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I
 condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then Jesus spoke again to 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.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said to him, Thou testifiest
 concerning thyself; thy testimony is not true.
8:14 Jesus answered and said to them, Though I testify
 concerning myself, [yet] my testimony is true: for I know
 whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I
 come, and whither I go.
8:15 Ye 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 testifieth concerning myself; and the Father
 that sent me, testifieth concerning me.
8:19 Then said they to him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered,
 Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye would
 have known my Father also.
8:20 These words Jesus spoke 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 to them, I am going away, and ye will
 seek me, and will die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot
8:22 Then said the Jews, will he kill himself? because he saith,
 Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:23 And he said to them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above:
 ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:24 I said therefore to you, that ye will die in your sins: for
 if ye believe not that I am [he], ye will die in your sins.
8:25 Then said they to him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith to
 them, Even [the same] that I said to 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 from him.
8:27 They understood not that he spoke to them concerning the
8:28 Then said Jesus to them, When ye have lifted up the Son of
 man, then shall ye know that I am [he], and [that] I do nothing
 of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath 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 who believed on him, If ye
 continue in my word, ye are my disciples indeed;
8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
8:33 They answered him, We are Abraham's offspring, and were
 never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Whoever
 committeth sin, is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever, [but]
 the Son abideth for ever.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free
8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's offspring; but ye seek to kill
 me, because my word hath no place in you.
8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do
 that which ye have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus
 saith to them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the
 works of Abraham.
8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the
 truth, which I have heard from God: this did not Abraham.
8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We
 are not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even] God.
8:42 Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, ye would love
 me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of
 myself, but he sent me.
8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye
 cannot hear my word.
8:44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your
 father ye will do: he was a murderer 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.
8:45 And because I tell [you] the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46 Which of you convicteth me of sin? And if I speak the
 truth, why do ye not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God, heareth God's words: ye therefore hear
 [them] not, because ye are not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said to him, Say we not well
 that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a demon?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a demon; but I honor my Father,
 and ye dishonor me.
8:50 And I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeketh and
8:51 Verily, verily, I say to you, If a man shall keep my
 saying, he shall never see death.
8:52 Then said the Jews to him, Now we know that thou hast a
 demon. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a
 man shall keep my saying, he shall never taste death.
8:53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? and
 the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it
 is my Father that honoreth me, of whom ye say, that he is your
8:55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should
 say, I know him not, I should be a liar like 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 to him, Thou art not yet fifty years
 old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Before
 Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Then they took 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.
