King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do . He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 48 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?"
49 Jesus answered , I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.
50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth . 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge.
51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death."
52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead , and the prophets; and thou sayest , If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 52 At this the Jews exclaimed, "Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that if anyone keeps your word, he will never taste death.
