John 8:48-59

NIRV 48 The Jews answered Jesus, "Aren't we right when we say you are a Samaritan? Aren't you controlled by a demon?" NIV 48 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?" NIRV 49 "I am not controlled by a demon," said Jesus. "I honor my Father. You do not honor me. NIV 49 "I am not possessed by a demon," said Jesus, "but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. NIRV 50 I am not seeking glory for myself. But there is One who brings glory to me. He is the judge. NIV 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. NIRV 51 What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who obeys my word will never die." NIV 51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death." NIRV 52 Then the Jews cried out, "Now we know you are controlled by a demon! Abraham died. So did the prophets. But you say that anyone who obeys your word will never die. 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. NIRV 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died. So did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" NIV 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" NIRV 54 Jesus replied, "If I bring glory to myself, my glory means nothing. You claim that my Father is your God. He is the one who brings glory to me. 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. NIRV 55 You do not know him. But I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you. But I do know him. And I obey 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. NIRV 56 "Your father Abraham was filled with joy at the thought of seeing 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." NIRV 57 "You are not even 50 years old," the Jews said to Jesus. "And you have seen Abraham?" NIV 57 "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" NIRV 58 "What I'm about to tell you is true," Jesus answered. "Before Abraham was born, I am!" NIV 58 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" NIRV 59 When he said this, they picked up stones to kill him. But Jesus hid himself. He slipped away from the temple area. NIV 59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
