John 12:38-48 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"a1 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: 40 "He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn--and I would heal them."b2 41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory3 and spoke about him.4 42 Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him.5 But because of the Pharisees6 they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue;7 43 for they loved praise from men8 more than praise from God.9 44 Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.10 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me.11 46 I have come into the world as a light,12 so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. 47 "As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.13 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him14 at the last day.
