View In My Bible
37 "I know that you are 1Abraham's descendants; yet 2you seek to kill Me, because My word ahas no place in you. 38 "I speak the things which I have seen bwith My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from 3your father." 39 They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is 4our father." Jesus said to them, "5If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham. 40 "But as it is, 6you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has 7told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do. 41 "You are doing the deeds of 8your father." They said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; 9we have one Father: God." 42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, 10you would love Me, 11for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have 12not even come on My own initiative, but c13He sent Me. 43 "Why do you not understand d14what I am saying? It is because you cannot 15hear My word. 44 "16You are of 17your father the devil, and 18you want to do the desires of your father. 19He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because 20there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks ea lie, he 21speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of flies. 45 "But because 22I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 "Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If 23I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 "24He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God."
