John 8

8:1 Iesus went vnto ye Mount of Oliues: 8:2 And earely in the morning hee came againe into the Temple, and all the people came vnto him, and he sate downe, and taught them. 8:3 And the Scribes and Pharisees brought vnto him a woman taken in adultery, and when they had set her in the mids, 8:4 They say vnto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 8:5 Now Moses in the Law commanded vs, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might haue to accuse him. But Iesus stouped downe, and with his finger wrote on the ground as though he heard them not. 8:7 So when they continued asking him, hee lift vp himselfe, and saide vnto them, Hee that is without sinne among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8:8 And againe, hee stouped downe, and wrote on the ground. 8:9 And they which heard it, being conuicted by their owne conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, euen vnto the last: and Iesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 8:10 When Iesus had lift vp himselfe, and saw none but the woman, hee said vnto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers Hath no man condemned thee 8:11 She saide, No man, Lord. And Iesus saide vnto her, Neither doe I condemne thee: Goe, and sinne no more. 8:12 Then spake Iesus againe vnto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth mee, shall not walke in darkenesse, but shall haue the light of life. 8:13 The Pharisees therefore said vnto him, Thou bearest record of thy selfe, thy record is not true. 8:14 Iesus answered, and said vnto them, Though I beare record of my selfe, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I goe: but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I goe. 8:15 Yee iudge after the flesh, I iudge no man. 8:16 And yet if I iudge, my iudgement is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. 8:17 It is also written in your Law, that the testimonie of two men is true. 8:18 I am one that beare witnesse of my selfe, and the Father that sent mee, beareth witnesse of me. 8:19 Then said they vnto him, Where is thy Father Iesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had knowen mee, yee should haue knowen my Father also. 8:20 These words spake Iesus in the treasury, as hee taught in the Temple: and no man layd hands on him, for his houre was not yet come. 8:21 Then saide Iesus againe vnto them, I goe my way, and ye shall seeke me, & shall die in your sinnes: Whither I goe, ye cannot come. 8:22 Then said the Iewes, Will hee kill himselfe because he saith, Whither I goe, ye cannot come. 8:23 And hee said vnto them, Yee are from beneath, I am from aboue: Yee are of this world, I am not of this world. 8:24 I said therefore vnto you, that ye shall die in your sinnes. For if yee beleeue not that I am hee, yee shall die in your sinnes. 8:25 Then said they vnto him, Who art thou And Iesus saith vnto them, Euen the same that I saide vnto you from the beginning. 8:26 I haue many things to say, and to iudge of you: But hee that sent mee is true, and I speake to the world, those things which I haue heard of him. 8:27 They vnderstood not that hee spake to them of the Father. 8:28 Then saide Iesus vnto them, When yee haue lift vp the Sonne of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I doe nothing of my selfe: but as my Father hath taught mee, I speake these things. 8:29 And he that sent me, is with me: the Father hath not left mee alone: for I doe alwayes those things that please him. 8:30 As hee spake those words, many beleeued on him. 8:31 Then said Iesus to those Iewes which beleeued on him, If ye continue in my word, then are yee my disciples indeed. 8:32 And ye shall know the Trueth, and the Trueth shall make you free. 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham seed, and were neuer in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Yee shall be made free 8:34 Iesus answered them, Uerily, verily I say vnto you, Whosoeuer committeth sinne, is the seruant of sinne. 8:35 And the seruant abideth not in the house for euer: but the Sonne abideth euer. 8:36 If the Sonne therfore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 8:37 I know that yee are Abrahams seed, but ye seeke to kill mee, because my word hath no place in you. 8:38 I speake that which I haue seene with my Father: and ye do that which ye haue seene with your father. 8:39 They answered, and said vnto him, Abraham is our father. Iesus sayth vnto them, If yee were Abrahams children, ye would doe the works of Abraham. 8:40 But now yee seeke to kill me, a man that hath tolde you the trueth, which I haue heard of God: this did not Abraham. 8:41 Ye doe the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not borne of fornication, wee haue one Father, euen God. 8:42 Iesus said vnto them, If God were your Father, yee would loue me, for I proceeded foorth, and came from God: neither came I of my selfe, but he sent me. 8:43 Why doe yee not vnderstand my speech euen because yee cannot heare my word. 8:44 Ye are of your father the deuill, and the lusts of your father ye will doe: hee was a murtherer from the beginning, and abode not in the trueth, because there is no trthh in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his owne: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 8:45 And because I tell you the trthh, ye beleeue me not. 8:46 Which of you conuinceth mee of sinne And if I say the trueth, why doe ye not beleeue me 8:47 He that is of God, heareth Gods words: ye therefore heare them not, because ye are not of God. 8:48 Then answered the Iewes, and said vnto him, Say wee not well that thou art a Samaritane, & hast a deuill 8:49 Iesus answered, I haue not a deuill: but I honour my Father, and ye doe dishonour me. 8:50 And I seeke not mine owne glory, there is one that seeketh & iudgeth. 8:51 Uerely, verely I say vnto you, If a man keepe my saying, hee shall neuer see death. 8:52 Then said the Iewes vnto him, Now we know that thou hast a deuill. Abraham is dead, and the Prophets: and thou sayest, If a man keepe my saying, he shall neuer taste of death. 8:53 Art thou greater then our father Abraham, which is dead and the Prophets are dead: whom makest thou thy selfe 8:54 Iesus answered, If I honour myselfe, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me, of whom ye say, that he is your God: 8:55 Yet ye haue not knowen him, but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shalbe a lyar like vnto you: but I know him, and keepe his saying. 8:56 Your father Abraham reioyced to see my day: and he saw it, & was glad. 8:57 Then said the Iewes vnto him, Thou art not yet fiftie yeeres olde, and hast thou seene Abraham 8:58 Iesus said vnto them, Uerely, verely I say vnto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 8:59 Then tooke they vp stones to cast at him: but Iesus hidde himselfe, and went out of the Temple, going thorow the midst of them, and so passed by.
