John 8 (WEBP)

[1] but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
[2] Now very early in the morning, he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him. He sat down and taught them.
[3] The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman taken in adultery. Having set her in the middle,
[4] they told him, “Teacher, we found this woman in adultery, in the very act.
[5] Now in our law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. What then do you say about her?”
[6] They said this testing him, that they might have something to accuse him of. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger.
[7] But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her.”
[8] Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger.
[9] They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning from the oldest, even to the last. Jesus was left alone with the woman where she was, in the middle.
[10] Jesus, standing up, saw her and said, “Woman, where are your accusers? Did no one condemn you?”
[11] She said, “No one, Lord.” Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go your way. From now on, sin no more.”
[12] Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
[13] The Pharisees therefore said to him, “You testify about yourself. Your testimony is not valid.”
[14] Jesus answered them, “Even if I testify about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from, and where I am going; but you don’t know where I came from, or where I am going.
[15] You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one.
[16] Even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent me.
[17] It’s also written in your law that the testimony of two people is valid.
[18] I am one who testifies about myself, and the Father who sent me testifies about me.”
[19] They said therefore to him, “Where is your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”
[20] Jesus spoke these words in the treasury, as he taught in the temple. Yet no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
[21] Jesus said therefore again to them, “I am going away, and you will seek me, and you will die in your sins. Where I go, you can’t come.”
[22] The Jews therefore said, “Will he kill himself, because he says, ‘Where I am going, you can’t come’?”
[23] He said to them, “You are from beneath. I am from above. You are of this world. I am not of this world.
[24] I said therefore to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins.”
[25] They said therefore to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning.
[26] I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. However, he who sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these I say to the world.”
[27] They didn’t understand that he spoke to them about the Father.
[28] Jesus therefore said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father taught me, I say these things.
[29] He who sent me is with me. The Father hasn’t left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”
[30] As he spoke these things, many believed in him.
[31] Jesus therefore said to those Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word, then you are truly my disciples.
[32] You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
[33] They answered him, “We are Abraham’s offspring, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How do you say, ‘You will be made free’?”
[34] Jesus answered them, “Most certainly I tell you, everyone who commits sin is the bondservant of sin.
[35] A bondservant doesn’t live in the house forever. A son remains forever.
[36] If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
[37] I know that you are Abraham’s offspring, yet you seek to kill me, because my word finds no place in you.
[38] I say the things which I have seen with my Father; and you also do the things which you have seen with your father.”
[39] They answered him, “Our father is Abraham.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.
[40] But now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham didn’t do this.
[41] You do the works of your father.” They said to him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father, God.”
[42] Therefore Jesus said to them, “If God were your father, you would love me, for I came out and have come from God. For I haven’t come of myself, but he sent me.
[43] Why don’t you understand my speech? Because you can’t hear my word.
[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 doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.
[45] But because I tell the truth, you don’t believe me.
[46] Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?
[47] He who is of God hears the words of God. For this cause you don’t hear, because you are not of God.”
[48] Then the Jews answered him, “Don’t we say well that you are a Samaritan, and have a demon?”
[49] Jesus answered, “I don’t have a demon, but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.
[50] But I don’t seek my own glory. There is one who seeks and judges.
[51] Most certainly, I tell you, if a person keeps my word, he will never see death.”
[52] Then the Jews said to him, “Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, as did the prophets; and you say, ‘If a man keeps my word, he will never taste of death.’
[53] Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died. Who do you make yourself out to be?”
[54] Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is our God.
[55] You have not known him, but I know him. If I said, ‘I don’t know him,’ I would be like you, a liar. But I know him and keep his word.
[56] Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day. He saw it and was glad.”
[57] The Jews therefore said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old! Have you seen Abraham?”
[58] Jesus said to them, “Most certainly, I tell you, before Abraham came into existence, I AM.
[59] Therefore they took up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple, having gone through the middle of them, and so passed by.

[3] And the scribes and Pharisees brought () unto him a woman taken () in adultery ; and when they had set () her in the midst ,
[4] They say () unto him , Master , this woman was taken () in adultery (), in the very act .
[5] Now Moses in the law commanded () us , that such should be stoned (): but what sayest () thou ?
[6] This they said (), tempting () him , that they might have () to accuse () him . But Jesus stooped () down , and with [his] finger wrote () on the ground , [as though he heard () them not ].
[7] So when they continued () asking () him , he lifted up himself (), and said () unto them , He that is without sin among you , let him first cast () a stone at her .
[8] And again he stooped () down , and wrote () on the ground .
[9] And they which heard () [it], being convicted () by [their own] conscience , went out () one by one , beginning () at the eldest , [even] unto the last : and Jesus was left () alone , and the woman standing () in the midst .
[10] When Jesus had lifted up himself (), and saw () none but the woman , he said () unto her , Woman , where are () those thine accusers ? hath no man condemned () thee ?
[11] She said (), No man , Lord . And Jesus said () unto her , Neither do I condemn () thee : go (), and sin () no more .
[12] Then spake () Jesus again unto them , saying (), I am () the light of the world : he that followeth () me shall not walk () in darkness , but shall have () the light of life .
[13] The Pharisees therefore said () unto him , Thou bearest record () of thyself ; thy record is () not true .
[14] Jesus answered () and said () unto them , Though I bear record () of myself , [yet] my record is () true : for I know () whence I came (), and whither I go (); but ye cannot tell () whence I come (), and whither I go ().
[15] Ye judge () after the flesh ; I judge () no man .
[16] And yet if I judge (), my judgment is () true : for I am () not alone , but I and the Father that sent () me .
[17] It is also written () in your law , that the testimony of two men is () true .
[18] I am () one that bear witness () of myself , and the Father that sent () me beareth witness () of me .
[19] Then said they () unto him , Where is () thy Father ? Jesus answered (), Ye neither know () me , nor my Father : if ye had known () me , ye should have known () my Father also .
[20] These words spake () Jesus in the treasury , as he taught () in the temple : and no man laid hands () on him ; for his hour was not yet come ().
[21] Then said () Jesus again unto them , I go my way (), and ye shall seek () me , and shall die () in your sins : whither I go (), ye cannot () come ().
[22] Then said () the Jews , Will he kill () himself ? because he saith (), Whither I go (), ye cannot () come ().
[23] And he said () unto them , Ye are () from beneath ; I am () from above : ye are () of this world ; I am () not of this world .
[24] I said () therefore unto you , that ye shall die () in your sins : for if ye believe () not that I am () [he], ye shall die () in your sins .
[25] Then said they () unto him , Who art () thou ? And Jesus saith () unto them , Even [the same] that I said () unto you from the beginning .
[26] I have () many things to say () and to judge () of you : but he that sent () me is () true ; and I speak () to the world those things which I have heard () of him .
[27] They understood () not that he spake () to them of the Father .
[28] Then said () Jesus unto them , When ye have lifted up () the Son of man , then shall ye know () that I am () [he], and [that] I do () nothing of myself ; but as my Father hath taught () me , I speak () these things .
[29] And he that sent () me is () with me : the Father hath not left () me alone ; for I do () always those things that please him .
[30] As he spake () these words , many believed () on him .
[31] Then said () Jesus to those Jews which believed () on him , If ye continue () in my word , [then] are ye () my disciples indeed ;
[32] And ye shall know () the truth , and the truth shall make you free ().
[33] They answered () him , We be () Abraham’s seed , and were never in bondage () to any man : how sayest () thou , Ye shall be made () free ?
[34] Jesus answered () them , Verily , verily , I say () unto you , Whosoever committeth () sin is () the servant of sin .
[35] And the servant abideth () not in the house for ever : [but] the Son abideth () ever .
[36] If the Son therefore shall make you free (), ye shall be () free indeed .
[37] I know () that ye are () Abraham’s seed ; but ye seek () to kill () me , because my word hath no place () in you .
[38] I speak () that which I have seen () with my Father : and ye do () that which ye have seen () with your father .
[39] They answered () and said () unto him , Abraham is () our father . Jesus saith () unto them , If ye were () Abraham’s children , ye would do () the works of Abraham .
[40] But now ye seek () to kill () me , a man that hath told () you the truth , which I have heard () of God : this did () not Abraham .
[41] Ye do () the deeds of your father . Then said they () to him , We be not born () of fornication ; we have () one Father , [even] God .
[42] Jesus said () unto them , If God were () your Father , ye would love (
