John 8

WNT 1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. NIV 1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. WNT 2 At break of day however He returned to the Temple, and there the people came to Him in crowds. He seated Himself; 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. WNT 3 and was teaching them when the Scribes and the Pharisees brought to Him a woman who had been found committing adultery. They made her stand in the centre of the court, and they put the case to Him. NIV 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group WNT 4 "Rabbi," they said, "this woman has been found in the very act of committing adultery. NIV 4 and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. WNT 5 Now, in the Law, Moses has ordered us to stone such women to death. But what do you say?" NIV 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" WNT 6 They asked this in order to put Him to the test, so that they might have some charge to bring against Him. But Jesus leant forward and began to write 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. WNT 7 When however they persisted with their question, He raised His head and said to them, "Let the sinless man among you be the first to throw 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." WNT 8 Then He leant forward again, and again began to write on the ground. NIV 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. WNT 9 They listened to Him, and then, beginning with the eldest, took their departure, one by one, till all were gone. And Jesus was left behind alone--and the woman in the centre of the court. 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. WNT 10 Then, raising His head, Jesus said to her, "Where are they? Has no one condemned you?" NIV 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" WNT 11 "No one, Sir," she replied. "And *I* do not condemn you either," said Jesus; "go, and from this time do not sin any more."] NIV 11 "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin." WNT 12 Once more Jesus addressed them. "I am the Light of the world," He said; "the man who follows me shall certainly not walk in the dark, 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." WNT 13 "You are giving testimony about yourself," said the Pharisees; "your testimony is not true." NIV 13 The Pharisees challenged him, "Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid." WNT 14 "Even if I am giving testimony about myself," replied Jesus, "my testimony is true; for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you know neither of these two things. 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. WNT 15 You judge according to appearances: I am judging no one. NIV 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. WNT 16 And even if I do judge, my judgement is just; for I am not alone, but the Father who sent me is with 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. WNT 17 In your own Law, too, 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. WNT 18 I am one giving testimony about myself, and the Father who sent me gives testimony about me." NIV 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me." WNT 19 "Where is your Father?" they asked. "You know my Father as little as you know me." He replied; "if you knew me, 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." WNT 20 These sayings He uttered in the Treasury, while teaching in the Temple; yet no one arrested Him, because His time had 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. WNT 21 Again He said to them, "I am going away. Then you will try to find me, but you will die in your sins. Where I am going, it is impossible for you to 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." WNT 22 The Jews began to ask one another, "Is he going to kill himself, do you think, that he says, `Where I am going, it is impossible for you to come'?" NIV 22 This made the Jews ask, "Will he kill himself ? Is that why he says, 'Where I go, you cannot come'?" WNT 23 "You," He continued, "are from below, I am from above: you are of this present world, I am not of this present 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. WNT 24 That is why I told you that you will die in your sins; for, unless you believe that I am He, that is what will happen." 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." WNT 25 "You--who are you?" they asked. "How is it that I am speaking to you at all?" replied Jesus. NIV 25 "Who are you?" they asked. "Just what I have been claiming all along," Jesus replied. WNT 26 "Many things I have to speak and to judge concerning you. But He who sent me is true, and the things which I have heard from Him are those which I have come into the world to speak." 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." WNT 27 They did not perceive that He was speaking to them of the Father. NIV 27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. WNT 28 So Jesus added, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He. Of myself I do nothing; but as the Father has taught me, so 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. WNT 29 And He who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone: for I do always what is pleasing to Him." NIV 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him." WNT 30 As He thus spoke, many became believers in Him. NIV 30 Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him. WNT 31 Jesus therefore said to those of the Jews who had now believed in Him, "As for you, if you hold fast to my teaching, then you are truly my disciples; NIV 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. WNT 32 and you shall know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free." NIV 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." WNT 33 "We are descendants of Abraham," they answered, "and have never at any time been in slavery to any one. What do those words of yours mean, `You shall become 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?" WNT 34 "In most solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that every one who commits sin is the slave of sin. NIV 34 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. WNT 35 Now a slave does not remain permanently in his master's house, but a son does. NIV 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. WNT 36 If then the Son shall make you free, you will be free indeed. NIV 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. WNT 37 You are descendants of Abraham, I know; but you want to kill me, because my teaching gains no ground within 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. WNT 38 The words I speak are those I have learnt in the presence of the Father. Therefore you also should do what you have heard from 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. " WNT 39 "Our father is Abraham," they said. "If you were Abraham's children," replied Jesus, "it is Abraham's deeds that you would be doing. NIV 39 "Abraham is our father," they answered. "If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do the things Abraham did. WNT 40 But, in fact, you are longing to kill me, a man who has spoken to you the truth which I have heard from God. Abraham did not do that. 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. WNT 41 You are doing the deeds of your father." "We," they replied, "are not illegitimate children. We have one Father, namely 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." WNT 42 "If God were your Father," said Jesus, "you would love me; for it is from God that I came and I am now here. I have not come 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. WNT 43 How is it you do not understand me when I speak? It is because you cannot bear to listen to my words. NIV 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. WNT 44 The father whose sons you are is the Devil; and you desire to do what gives him pleasure. *He* was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand firm in the truth--for there is no truth in him. Whenever he utters his lie, he utters it out of his own store; for he is a liar, and the father of lies. 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. WNT 45 But because I speak the truth, you do not believe me. NIV 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! WNT 46 Which of *you* convicts me of sin? If I speak the truth, 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? WNT 47 He who is a child of God listens to God's words. You do not listen to them: and why? It is because you are not God's children." 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." WNT 48 "Are we not right," answered the Jews, "in saying that you are a Samaritan and are possessed by a demon?" NIV 48 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?" WNT 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," replied Jesus. "On the contrary I honour my Father, and you dishonour me. NIV 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. WNT 50 I, however, am not aiming at glory for myself: there is One who aims at glory for me--and who judges. NIV 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. WNT 51 In most solemn truth I tell you that if any one shall have obeyed my teaching he shall in no case ever see death." NIV 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death." WNT 52 "Now," exclaimed the Jews, "we know that you are possessed by a demon. Abraham died, and so did the Prophets, and yet *you* say, `If any one shall have obeyed my teaching, he shall in no case ever taste death.' 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. WNT 53 Are you really greater than our forefather Abraham? For he died. And the prophets died. Who do you make yourself out to be?" NIV 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" WNT 54 "Were I to glorify myself," answered Jesus, "I should have no real glory. There is One who glorifies me--namely my Father, who you say 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. WNT 55 You do not know Him, but I know Him perfectly; and were I to deny my knowledge of Him, I should resemble you, and be a liar. On the contrary I do know Him, and I obey His commands. 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. WNT 56 Abraham your forefather exulted in the hope of seeing my day: and 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." WNT 57 "You are not yet fifty years old," cried the Jews, "and have you seen Abraham?" NIV 57 "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" WNT 58 "In most solemn truth," answered Jesus, "I tell you that before Abraham came into existence, I am." NIV 58 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" WNT 59 Thereupon they took up stones with which to stone Him, but He hid Himself and went away 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.
