NAS 31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; NIV 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. NAS 32 and you will 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." NAS 33 They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, 'You will 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?" NAS 34 Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone 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. NAS 35 "The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. NIV 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. NAS 36 "So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. NIV 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. NAS 37 "I know that you are Abraham's descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has 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. NAS 38 "I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you 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. " NAS 39 They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds 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. NAS 40 "But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do. 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. NAS 41 "You are doing the deeds of your father." They said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: 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." NAS 42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, 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. NAS 43 "Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is 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. NAS 44 "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, 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. NAS 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! NAS 46 "Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak 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? NAS 47 "He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, 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." NAS 48 The Jews answered and said to Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?" NIV 48 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?" NAS 49 Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. NIV 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. NAS 50 "But I do not seek My glory; there is One who seeks and judges. NIV 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. NAS 51 "Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death." NIV 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death." NAS 52 The Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, 'If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of 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. NAS 53 "Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom 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?" NAS 54 Jesus answered, "If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, 'He is our 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. NAS 55 and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and 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. NAS 56 "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see 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." NAS 57 So the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?" NIV 57 "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" NAS 58 Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am." NIV 58 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"
