38 that the word of Esaias, the prophet, should be fulfilled, which he said, Lord, who hath believed to our hearing, and to whom is the arm of the Lord showed? 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?"
39 Therefore they might not believe, for again Esaias said, 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hath made hard the heart of them [and he hath endured, or made hard, the heart of them], that they see not with eyes, and understand [not] with heart; and that they be converted, and I heal them. 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."

44 And Jesus cried, and said, He that believeth in me, believeth not in me, but in him that sent me. 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.
45 He that seeth me, seeth him that sent me. 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me.

47 And if any man heareth my words, and keepeth them not, I deem him not [And if any man shall hear my words, and shall not keep, I deem not him]; for I came not, that I deem the world, but that I make the world safe. 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.
48 He that despiseth me, and taketh not my words, hath him that shall judge him; that word that I have spoken, [that] shall deem him in the last day [the word that I have spoken, that shall deem him in the last day]. 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 him at the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself, but that Father that sent me, [he] gave to me a commandment, what I shall say, and what I shall speak. 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it.
50 And I know, that his commandment is everlasting life; therefore those things that I speak, as the Father said to me, so I speak. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
