John 8

RHE 1 And Jesus went unto mount Olivet. NIV 1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. RHE 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple: and all the people came to him. And sitting down he taught them. NIV 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. RHE 3 And the scribes and Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst, NIV 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group RHE 4 And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery. NIV 4 and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. RHE 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou? NIV 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" RHE 6 And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground. NIV 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. RHE 7 When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. NIV 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." RHE 8 And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground. NIV 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. RHE 9 But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst. NIV 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. RHE 10 Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee? NIV 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" RHE 11 Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more. NIV 11 "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin." RHE 12 Again therefore, Jesus spoke to: them, saying: I am the light of the world. He that followeth me walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life. NIV 12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." RHE 13 The Pharisees therefore said to him: Thou givest testimony of thyself. Thy testimony is not true. NIV 13 The Pharisees challenged him, "Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid." RHE 14 Jesus answered and said to them: Although I give testimony of myself, my testimony is true: for I know whence I came and whither I go. NIV 14 Jesus answered, "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. RHE 15 You judge according to the flesh: I judge not any man. NIV 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. RHE 16 And if I do judge, my judgment is true: because I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. NIV 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. RHE 17 And in your law it is written that the testimony of two men is true. NIV 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid. RHE 18 I am one that give testimony of myself: and the Father that sent me giveth testimony of me. NIV 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me." RHE 19 They said therefore to him: Where is thy Father? Jesus answered: Neither me do you know, nor my Father. If you did know me, perhaps you would know my Father also. NIV 19 Then they asked him, "Where is your father?" "You do not know me or my Father," Jesus replied. "If you knew me, you would know my Father also." RHE 20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, teaching in the temple: and no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. NIV 20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple area near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his time had not yet come. RHE 21 Again therefore Jesus said to them: I go: and you shall seek me. And you shall die in your sin. Whither I go, you cannot come. NIV 21 Once more Jesus said to them, "I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come." RHE 22 The Jews therefore said: Will he kill himself, because he said: Whither I go you cannot come? NIV 22 This made the Jews ask, "Will he kill himself ? Is that why he says, 'Where I go, you cannot come'?" RHE 23 And he said to them: You are from beneath: I am from above. You are of this world: I am not of this world. NIV 23 But he continued, "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. RHE 24 Therefore I said to you that you shall die in your sins. For if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sin. NIV 24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be], you will indeed die in your sins." RHE 25 They said therefore to him: Who art thou? Jesus said to them: The beginning, who also speak unto you. NIV 25 "Who are you?" they asked. "Just what I have been claiming all along," Jesus replied. RHE 26 Many things I have to speak and to judge of you. But he that sent me, is true: and the things I have heard of him, these same I speak in the world. NIV 26 "I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world." RHE 27 And they understood not that he called God his Father. NIV 27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. RHE 28 Jesus therefore said to them: When you shall have lifted up, the Son of man, then shall you know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself. But as the Father hath taught me, these things I speak. NIV 28 So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [the one I claim to be] and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. RHE 29 And he that sent me is with me: and he hath not left me alone. For I do always the things that please him. NIV 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him." RHE 30 When he spoke these things, many believed in him. NIV 30 Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him. RHE 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. NIV 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. RHE 32 And you shall know the truth: and the truth shall make you free. NIV 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." RHE 33 They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham: and we have never been slaves to any man. How sayest thou: You shall be free? NIV 33 They answered him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?" RHE 34 Jesus answered them: Amen, amen, I say unto you that whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. NIV 34 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. RHE 35 Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the son abideth for ever. NIV 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. RHE 36 If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. NIV 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. RHE 37 I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. NIV 37 I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word. RHE 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. NIV 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father's presence, and you do what you have heard from your father. " RHE 39 They answered and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. NIV 39 "Abraham is our father," they answered. "If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do the things Abraham did. RHE 40 But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not. NIV 40 As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. RHE 41 You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. NIV 41 You are doing the things your own father does." "We are not illegitimate children," they protested. "The only Father we have is God himself." RHE 42 Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded and came. For I came not of myself: but he sent me. NIV 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. RHE 43 Why do you not know my speech? Because you cannot hear my word. NIV 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. RHE 44 You are of your father the devil: and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning: and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. NIV 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. RHE 45 But if I say the truth, you believe me not. NIV 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! RHE 46 Which of you shall convince me of sin? If I say the truth to you, why do you not believe me: NIV 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me? RHE 47 He that is of God heareth the words of God. Therefore you hear them not, because you are not of God. NIV 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God." RHE 48 The Jews therefore answered and said to him: Do not we say well that thou art a Samaritan and hast a devil? NIV 48 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?" RHE 49 Jesus answered: I have not a devil: but I honour my Father. And you have dishonoured me. NIV 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. RHE 50 But I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. NIV 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. RHE 51 Amen, amen, I say to you: If any man keep my word, he shall not see death for ever. NIV 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death." RHE 52 The Jews therefore said: Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets: and thou sayest: If any man keep my word, he shall not taste death for ever. NIV 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. RHE 53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Whom dost thou make thyself? NIV 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" RHE 54 Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father that glorifieth me, of whom you say that he is your God. NIV 54 Jesus replied, "If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me. RHE 55 And you have not known him: but I know him. And if I shall say that I know him not, I shall be like to you, a liar. But I do know him and do keep his word. NIV 55 Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and keep his word. RHE 56 Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see my day: he saw it and was glad. NIV 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad." RHE 57 The Jews therefore said to him: Thou art not yet fifty years old. And hast thou seen Abraham? NIV 57 "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" RHE 58 Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM. NIV 58 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" RHE 59 They took up stones therefore to cast at him. But Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple. NIV 59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
