Jesus answered, "1If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; 2it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, 'He is our God ';
and 3you have not come to know Him, 4but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be 5a liar like you, 6but I do know Him and 7keep His word.
"8Your father Abraham 9rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."
10So the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?"
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, 11I am."
Therefore they 12picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus 13hid Himself and went out of the temple.
