8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
8:5 "Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?"

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 ].
8:6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

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.
8:7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."

8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, "You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness 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 whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
8:14 Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going.

8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

8:19 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.
8:19 Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also."

8:20 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.
8:20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.

8:21 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.
8:21 Then Jesus said to them again, "I am going away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come."

8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:22 So the Jews said, "Will He kill Himself, because He says, 'Where I go you cannot come'?"

8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:23 And He said to them, "You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.
8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."

8:25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even [the same] that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:25 Then they said to Him, "Who are You?" And Jesus said to them, "Just what I have been saying 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 of him.
8:26 "I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him."

8:27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
8:27 They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father.

8:28 Then said Jesus unto 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 things.
8:28 Then Jesus said to them, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.

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.

8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
8:32 "And 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 sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
8:33 They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, 'You will be made free'?"

8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
8:34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.

8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever.
8:35 "And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.

8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
8:37 "I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but 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 ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
8:38 "I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father."

8:39 They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you 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 of God: this did not Abraham.
8:40 "But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even] God.
8:41 "You do the deeds of your father." Then they said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father--God."

8:42 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.
8:42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.

8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word.
8:43 "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to 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.
8:44 "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

8:45 And because I tell [you] the truth, ye believe me not.
8:45 "But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

8:46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
8:46 "Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you 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.
8:47 "He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."

8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
8:48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?"

8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
8:49 Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.

8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
8:50 "And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges.

8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
8:51 "Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death."

8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
8:52 Then the Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, 'If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.'

8:53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:53 "Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Whom do You make Yourself out to be?"

8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
8:54 Jesus answered, "If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God.

8:55 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 keep his saying.
8:55 "Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, 'I do not know Him,' I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word.

8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw [it], and was glad.
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, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:57 Then the Jews said to 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.
8:58 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to 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.
