8 but Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning again came he into the temple, [and all the people were coming unto him; and sitting down he began to teach them].
3 And the Scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman caught in adultery; and setting her in the midst
4 they say unto him—Teacher! this woman hath been caught in the very act of committing adultery!
5 Now in the law Moses [unto us] gave command to stone such as these. What then dost thou say?
6 [This however they were saying, by way of testing him,—that they might have whereof to accuse him]. But Jesus stooping down with his finger wrote in the ground.
7 When however they still continued questioning him he lifted himself up and said [unto them]—He of you that is without sin let him first cast at her a stone;
8 and again stooping down he wrote in the ground.
9 And they who heard began to go out one by one, beginning from the elders,—and he was left alone; the woman also being in the midst.
10 And lifting himself up Jesus said unto her—Woman, where are they? Hath no one condemned thee?
11 And she said—No one, Sir! And Jesus said—Neither do I condemn thee,—be going thy way: Henceforth be sinning no more.]]
12 Again therefore unto them spake Jesus, saying—I am the light of the world: He that followeth me shall in nowise walk in darkness, But shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him—Thou concerning thyself bearest witness: Thy witness is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto them—Even though I bear witness concerning myself True is my witness, Because I know whence I came and whither I go; But ye know not whence I come and whither I go.
15 Ye according to the flesh do judge: I am judging no one.
16 And even if I am judging My judging is genuine,—Because alone am I not, But I and the Father who sent me;
17 And in your own law it is written That two men’s witness is true:
18 I am the one bearing witness of myself, And the Father who sent me is bearing witness concerning me.
19 They were saying unto him therefore—Where is thy father? Jesus answered—Neither me do ye know nor yet my Father: If me ye had known my Father also had ye known.
20 These sayings spake he in the treasury teaching in the temple, and yet no one seized him because not yet had come his hour.
21 He said unto them again therefore—I go, and ye shall seek me,—and yet in your sin shall ye die: Whither I go ye cannot come.
22 The Jews therefore were saying—Can it be that he will kill himself, that he saith, Whither I go ye cannot come?
23 And he was saying unto them—Ye are of the realms below, I am of the realms above: Ye are of this world. I am not of this world.
24 Therefore said I unto you, Ye shall die in your sins; For if ye believe not that I am he ye shall die in your sins.
25 They were saying unto him therefore—Who art thou? Jesus said unto them—First and foremost Even what I speak unto you.
26 Many things have I concerning you to speak and to judge; But he who sent me is true, And I what things I heard from him the same speak I unto the world.
27 They noted not that as touching the Father unto them he was speaking.
28 Jesus therefore said—Whensoever ye shall lift up the Son of Man Then shall ye know that I am he, And of myself am doing nothing; But just as the Father taught me the same things am I speaking.
29 And he that sent me is with me: He hath not left me alone. Because I the things that please him ever do.
30 As he was speaking these things many believed on him.
31 Jesus was saying therefore unto the Jews who had believed on him—If ye abide in my word Of a truth my disciples ye are;
32 And ye shall know the truth, And the truth shall make you free.
33 They made answer unto him—Seed of Abraham are we, And unto no one have been brought into bondage at any time: How sayest thou Free shall ye be made?
34 Jesus answered them—Verily, verily I say unto you: Every one who committeth sin Is a slave [of sin]:
35 Now the slave doth not abide in the house evermore. The Son abideth evermore.
36 If then the Son shall make you free Really free shall ye be.
37 I know that ye are seed of Abraham; But ye are seeking to kill me, Because my word findeth no place in you.
38 What things I have seen with the Father I am speaking; Ye also then what things ye have heard from your father are doing.
39 They answered and said unto him—Our father is Abraham. Jesus saith unto them—If children of Abraham ye are The works of Abraham are ye doing.
40 But now ye are seeking to kill me,—A man who the truth unto you hath spoken Which I have heard from God: This Abraham did not.
41 Ye are doing the works of your father. They said unto him—We of fornication were not born: One father have we—God.
42 Jesus said unto them—If God had been your father ye had been loving me, For I from God came forth and am here; For not even of myself have I come, But he sent me forth.
43 Wherefore is it that my speech ye do not understand? Because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father—the adversary, And the covetings of your father ye choose to be doing. He was a murderer from the beginning, And in the truth he stood not; Because truth is not in him: Whensoever he speaketh falsehood Of his own he speaketh; Because false he is and the father of it.
45 But as for me Because the truth I speak ye do not believe me.
46 Which of you convicteth me of sin? If truth I speak wherefore do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth the sayings of God; Therefore do ye not hear, because of God ye are not.
48 The Jews answered and said unto him—Do we not well say: Thou art a Samaritan, and hast a demon?
49 Jesus answered—I have not a demon, But honour my Father; And ye dishonour me.
50 But I seek not my glory: There is one who seeketh and judgeth.
51 Verily, verily I say unto you: If anyone shall keep my word Death shall he not see unto times age-abiding.
52 The Jews said unto him—Now we know that a demon thou hast:—Abraham died, and the prophets, And yet thou sayest: If anyone shall keep my word In nowise shall he taste of death unto times age-abiding.
53 Surely thou art not greater than our father Abraham,—who indeed died? And the prophets died:—Whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered—If I glorify myself my glory is nothing: It is my Father that glorifieth me,—Of whom ye say—He is your God!
55 And yet ye have not come to know him; But I do know him: If I say I know him not I shall be like you—false; But I know him, and his word am I keeping.
56 Abraham your father exulted that he should see my day; And he saw and rejoiced.
57 The Jews therefore said unto him—Fifty years old not yet art thou, And Abraham hast thou seen?
58 Jesus said unto them—Verily, verily I say unto you: Before Abraham came into existence I am.
59 They took up stones therefore that they might cast at him; but Jesus was hidden, and went forth out of the temple.
