27"1Now My soul has become troubled ; and what shall I say, '2Father, save Me from 3thishour '? But for this purpose I came to thishour.28"4Father, glorify Your name."Then a 5voicecame out of heaven : "I have bothglorified it, and will glorify it again."
29So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered ; others were saying, "6An angel has spoken to Him."
30Jesusanswered and said, "7Thisvoice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes.31"8Nowjudgment is upon thisworld ; now9the ruler of thisworld will be cast out.32"And I, if I 10am lifted up from the earth, will 11drawallmen to Myself."33
But He was sayingthis12to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.
The crowdthenanswered Him, "We have heard out of 13the Law that a14the Christ is to remainforever ; and how can You say, 'The 15Son of Manmust be 16lifted up'? Who is this17Son of Man ?"
35SoJesussaid to them, "18For a littlewhilelonger19the Light is among you. 20Walkwhile you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who 21walks in the darkness does not knowwhere he goes.36"While you have the Light, 22believe in the Light, so that you may become23sons of Light."ThesethingsJesusspoke, and He wentaway and b24hid Himself from them.
But though He had performedsomanycsignsbefore them, yet they were not believing in Him.
This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophetwhich he spoke : "25LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT ? AND TO WHOM HAS THE ARM OF THE LORD BEEN REVEALED ?"
For thisreason they could not believe, for Isaiahsaidagain,
"26HE HAS BLINDED THEIR EYES AND HE 27HARDENED THEIR HEART, SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES AND PERCEIVE WITH THEIR HEART, AND dBE CONVERTED AND I HEAL THEM"41ThesethingsIsaiahsaidbecause28he saw His glory, and 29he spoke of Him.
42Nevertheless30manyeven of 31the rulersbelieved in Him, but 32because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be e33put out of the synagogue ;
4334for they loved the fapproval of menratherthan the gapproval of God.
And Jesuscried out and said, "35He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me.45"36He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me.46"37I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.47"Ifanyonehears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for 38I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.48"39He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; 40the word I spoke is what will judge him at 41the lastday.49"42For I did not speakhon My owninitiative, but the FatherHimself who sent Me 43has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.50"I know that 44His commandment is eternallife ; therefore the things I speak, I speak45just as the Father has told Me."
