John 5:30-47

ESV 30 "I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me. NIV 30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. ESV 31 If I alone bear witness about myself, my testimony is not deemed true. NIV 31 "If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid. ESV 32 There is another who bears witness about me, and I know that the testimony that he bears about me is true. NIV 32 There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is valid. ESV 33 You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. NIV 33 "You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth. ESV 34 Not that the testimony that I receive is from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved. NIV 34 Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved. ESV 35 He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. NIV 35 John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light. ESV 36 But the testimony that I have is greater than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I am doing, bear witness about me that the Father has sent me. NIV 36 "I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me. ESV 37 And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen, NIV 37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, ESV 38 and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent. NIV 38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. ESV 39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, NIV 39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, ESV 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. NIV 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life. ESV 41 I do not receive glory from people. NIV 41 "I do not accept praise from men, ESV 42 But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. NIV 42 but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. ESV 43 I have come in my Father's name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. NIV 43 I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. ESV 44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? NIV 44 How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God ? ESV 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. NIV 45 "But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set. ESV 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. NIV 46 If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. ESV 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?" NIV 47 But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?"
