Christ delivereth the woman taken in adultery.
John 8:1 [but, Jesus, went unto the Mount of Olives.] John 8:2 [And, early in the morning, again, came he into the temple, [and all the people were coming unto him; and, sitting down, he began to teach them.]] John 8:3 [And the Scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman, caught, in adultery; and, setting her in the midst,] John 8:4 [they say unto himTeacher! this woman, hath been caught in the very act of committing adultery!] John 8:5 [Now, in the law, Moses, [unto us] gave command to stone, such as these. What, then, dost, thou, say?] John 8:6 [[This, however, they were saying, by way of testing him,that they might have whereof to accuse him.] But, Jesus, stooping down, with his finger, wrote in the ground.] John 8:7 [When, however, they still continued questioning him, he lifted himself up and said [unto them]He of you, that is without sin, let him first cast at her a stone;] John 8:8 [and, again stooping down, he wrote in the ground.] John 8:9 [And, they who heard, began to go out, one by one, beginning from the elders,and he was left, alone; the woman also, being, in the midst.] John 8:10 [And lifting himself up, Jesus said unto herWoman, where are they? Hath, no one, condemned thee?] John 8:11 [And, she, saidNo one, Sir! And Jesus saidNeither do, I, condemn thee,be going thy way: Henceforth, be sinning, no more.]
He preacheth himself the light of the world, and justifieth his doctrine:
John 8:12 Again, therefore, unto them, spake Jesus, sayingI, am the light of the world: He that followeth me, shall in nowise walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:13 The Pharisees, therefore, said unto himThou, concerning thyself, bearest witness: thy witness, is not true. John 8:14 Jesus answered, and said unto themEven though, I, bear witness concerning myself, true, is my witness, because I know whence I came, and whither I go; but, ye, know not whence I come, and whither I go. John 8:15 Ye, according to the flesh, do judge: I, am judging no one. John 8:16 And, even if, I, am judging, my judging, is, genuine,because, alone, am I not, but, I, and the Father who sent me; John 8:17 And, in your own law, it is written, that, two men's witness, is, true: John 8:18 I, am the one bearing witness of myself, and the Father who sent me is bearing witness concerning me. John 8:19 They were saying unto him, thereforeWhere, is thy father? Jesus answeredNeither, me, do ye know, nor yet my Father: If, me, ye had known, my Father also, had ye known. John 8:20 These sayings, spake he in the treasury, teaching in the temple, and yet, no one, seized him, because, not yet, had come his hour. John 8:21 He said unto them again, thereforeI, go, and ye shall seek me,and yet, in your sin, shall ye die: Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come. John 8:22 The Jews, therefore, were sayingCan it be that he will kill himself, that he saith, Whither, I, go, ye, cannot come? John 8:23 And he was saying unto themYe, are, of the realms below, I, am, of the realms above: Ye, are, of this world, I, am not of this world. John 8:24 Therefore said I unto you, Ye shall die in your sins: For, if ye believe not that, I, am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 8:25 They were saying unto him, thereforeWho art, thou? Jesus said unto themFirst and foremost, even what I speak unto you. John 8:26 Many things, have I, concerning you, to speak, and to judge; but, he who sent me, is, true, and, I, what things I heard from him, the same, speak I unto the world. John 8:27 They noted not that, as touching the Father, unto them, he was speaking. John 8:28 Jesus, therefore, saidWhensoever ye shall lift up the Son of Man, then, shall ye know, that, I, am he, and, of myself, am doing, nothing; but, just as the Father taught me, the same things, am I speaking. John 8:29 And, he that sent me, is, with me: He hath not left me, alone. Because, I, the things that please him, ever do. John 8:30 As he was speaking these things, many, believed on him. John 8:31 Jesus was saying, therefore, unto the Jews who had believed on himIf, ye, abide in my word, of a truth, my disciples, ye are; John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and, the truth, shall make you free.
answereth the Jews that boasted of Abraham,
John 8:33 They made answer unto himSeed of Abraham, are we, and, unto no one, have been brought into bondage, at any time: How sayest, thou, Free, shall ye be made? John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you: Every one who committeth sin, is, a slave, [of sin:] John 8:35 Now, the slave, doth not abide in the house, evermore. The Son, abideth, evermore. John 8:36 If then, the Son, shall make you free, really free, shall ye be. John 8:37 I know that ye are, seed of Abraham; but ye are seeking to kill me, because, my word, findeth no place in you. John 8:38 What things, I, have seen with the Father, I am speaking; Ye, also, then, what things ye have heard from your father, are doing. John 8:39 They answered and said unto himOur father, is, Abraham. Jesus saith unto themIf, children of Abraham, ye are, the works of Abraham, are ye doing. John 8:40 But, now, ye are seeking, to kill me,A man who, the truth, unto you, hath spoken, which I have heard from God: this, Abraham, did not. John 8:41 Ye, are doing the works of your father. They said unto himWe, of fornication, were not born: One father, have weGod. John 8:42 Jesus said unto themIf, God, had been your father, ye had been loving me, for, I, from God, came forth, and am here; for, not even of myself, have I come, but, he, sent me forth. John 8:43 Wherefore, is it, that, my speech, ye do not understand? because ye cannot hear my word. John 8:44 Ye, are, of your fatherthe adversary, and, the covetings of your father, ye choose to be doing. He, was, a murderer, from the beginning, and, in the truth, he stood not; because truth is not in him: Whensoever he speaketh falsehood, of his own, he speaketh; because, false, he is, and, the father of it. John 8:45 But, as for me, because, the truth, I speak, ye do not believe me. John 8:46 Which of you convicteth me of sin? If, truth, I speak, wherefore, do, ye, not believe me? John 8:47 He that is of God, heareth, the sayings of God; therefore, do, ye, not hear, because, of God, ye are not. John 8:48 The Jews answered, and said unto himDo, we, not, well, say: Thou, art, a Samaritan, and hast a demon? John 8:49 Jesus answeredI, have not, a demon, but honour my Father: and, ye, dishonour me. John 8:50 But, I, seek not my glory: There is one who seeketh and judgeth. John 8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you: If anyone shall keep, my word, death, shall he not see, unto times age-abiding. John 8:52 The Jews said unto himNow, we know that, a demon, thou hast:Abraham, died, and, the prophets, and yet, thou, sayest: If anyone shall keep, my word, in nowise shall he taste of death, unto times age-abiding. John 8:53 Surely, thou, art not, greater, than our father Abraham,who, indeed, died? and, the prophets, died:Whom, makest thou thyself? John 8:54 Jesus answeredIf, I, glorify myself, my glory, is nothing: It is, my Father, that glorifieth me,of whom, ye, sayHe is, your God! John 8:55 And yet ye have not come to know him; but, I, do know him: If I say, I know him not, I shall be like youfalse; but I know him, and, his word, am I keeping. John 8:56 Abraham, your father, exulted that he should see my day; and he saw, and rejoiced. John 8:57 The Jews, therefore, said unto himFifty years old, not yet art thou, and, Abraham, hast thou seen? John 8:58 Jesus said unto themVerily, verily, I say unto you: Before, Abraham, came into existence, I, am.
and conveyeth himself from their cruelty.
John 8:59 They took up stones, therefore, that they might cast at him; but, Jesus, was hidden, and went forth out of the temple.
