47 Then answered them the
Pharisees,Are ye also deceived ?

48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them)

51 Doth our law judge any man before it hear him, and know what he doth ?

52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look : for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

53 And every man went unto his own house.

is brought before Jesus.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the templet and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

3 And the scribes and Pha. risees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adul. tery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou ?

CHAP. VIII. accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground as though he heard them not.

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 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

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.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers ? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee, go, and sin no more.

83. Jesus discourses with the Scribes and Pharisees, with those who believed in him, and, ver. 33, with the unbelieving Yews.

12 Then spake Jesus 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 thyself; thy record is not true.

14 Jesus answered and said

CHAP. VIII. unto them, Though I bear re. cord of myself, yet my record is true : for I know whence I

came, and whither I go ; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true : for I am not alone, but I and the Father 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 myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my

Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple : and no man laid hands on him ; for his hour was not yet come.

2i Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins : whither I go, ye cannot come.

22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above : ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

24 I said therefore unto you, that


shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. .

CHAP. VIII. 25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus said unto them, Even the same 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 have heard of him.

27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

28 Then said Jesus unto them, When

have lifted


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 things.

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.

30 As he spake these words many

believed on him. 31 | Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make

you free.

33 | They answered him, Webe Abraham'sseed,and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

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.




JOHN. CHAP. VIII. 37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because


word hath no place in you.

38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which


have seen with

your father.

39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's 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 I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication ; we have one Father, even God.

42 Jesus said unto 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.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil; and the lusts of your fatherye 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. 45 And because I tell


the truth, ve believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth,

why do ye not believe me?

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear
