8:1 But Jesus went into the mount of Olives. Jesus went unto the mount Olivet, And Jesus went unto the mount of olives, Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives:
8:2 And early again he came into the temple; and all the people came to him; and he sat, and taught them. and early in the morning came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him, And he sat down, and taught them. And early in the morning came again into the Temple, and all the people came unto him, and he sat down, and taught them. And early in the morning he came again into the Temple, and all the people came unto him, and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And scribes and Pharisees brought a woman taken in adultery, and set her in the middle, The scribes and pharises brought unto him a woman taken in advoutry, and set her in the midst Then the Scribes, & the Pharises brought unto him a woman, taken in adultery, & set her in the midst, And the Scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery, and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 and said to him, Master, this woman is now taken in adultery. and said unto him: Master this woman was taken in advoutry, even as the deed was adoing. And said unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
8:5 And in the law Moses commanded us to stone such; therefore what sayest thou? Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned: What sayest thou therefore? Now Moses in the Law commanded us, that such should be stoned: what sayest thou therefore? Now Moses in the Law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
8:6 And they said this thing tempting him, that they might accuse him. And Jesus bowed himself down, and wrote with his finger in the earth. And this they said to tempt him: that they might have, whereof to accuse him. Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. And this they said to tempt him, that they might have, whereof to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. 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.
8:7 Soothly when they lasted asking him, he raised himself, and said to them, He of you that is without sin, first cast a stone into her. And while they continued asking him, he lift himself up, And said unto them: let him that is among you without sin, cast the first stone at her. And while they continued asking him, he lift himself up, & said unto them, Let him that is among you without sin, cast the first stone at her. So when they continued asking him, he lift up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he bowed down himself, and wrote in the earth. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And again, he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 Soothly they hearing these things, went away one after another, they beginning at the elder men; and Jesus dwelt alone, and the woman standing in the middle. As soon as they heard that, they went out one by one the eldest first. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. And when they heard it, being accused by their own conscience, they went out one by one, beginning at the eldest even to the last: so Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 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.
8:10 And Jesus raised himself, and said to her, Woman, where be they that accused thee? no man hath condemned thee. When Jesus had lift up himself again, and saw no man but the woman: He said unto her: Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee? When Jesus had lift up himself again, and saw no man, but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? When Jesus had lift up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. Jesus said to her, Neither I shall condemn thee; go thou, and now afterward, do not thou do sin. She said: Sir no man. Jesus said: Neither do I condemn thee. Go hence and sin no more. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more. She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: Go, and sin no more.
8:12 Therefore again Jesus spake to them, and saying, I am the light of the world; he that followeth me, walketh not in darknesses, but shall have the light of life. 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. 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. 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.
8:13 Therefore the Pharisees said, Thou bearest witnessing of thyself; thy witnessing is not true. The pharises said unto him: thou bearest record of thyself: thy record is not true. The Pharises therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself: thy record is not true. The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself, thy record is not true.
8:14 Jesus answered, and said to them, And if I bear witnessing of myself, my witnessing is true; for I know from whence I came, and whither I go. But ye know not from whence I came, nor whither I go. Jesus answered and said unto them: And if I bear record of myself, my record is true for I know whence I came, and whither I go. Ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. Jesus answered, and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came & whether I go: but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whether I go. 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.
8:15 Forsooth ye deem after the flesh, I deem not any man; Ye judge after the flesh. I judge no man, Ye judge after the flesh: I judge no man. Ye judge after the flesh, I judge no man.
8:16 and if I deem, my doom is true, for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. and if I judge, then is my judgment true. For I am not alone: but I and my father that sent me. And if I also judge, my judgement is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father, that sent me. And yet if I judge, my judgement is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
8:17 And in your law it is written, that the witnessing of two men is true. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. And it is also written in your Law, that the testimony of two men is true. It is also written in your Law, that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am, that bear witnessing of myself, and the Father that sent me, beareth witnessing of me. I am one that bear witness of myself, and my father that sent me beareth witness of me. I am one that bear witness of myself, & the Father that sent me, beareth witness of me. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me, beareth witness of me.
8:19 Therefore they said to him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Neither ye know me, nor ye know my Father; if ye knew me, peradventure ye should know also my Father. Then said they unto him: Where is thy father? Jesus answered: ye neither know me, nor yet my father. If ye had known me, ye should have known my father also. 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. 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.
8:20 Jesus spake these words in the treasury, teaching in the temple; and no man took him, for his hour came not yet. These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple. And no man laid hands on him, For his time was not yet come. 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. 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.
8:21 Therefore again Jesus said to them, Lo! I go, and ye shall seek me, and ye shall die in your sin; whither I go, ye may not come. Then said Jesus again unto them: I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins. Whither I go thither can ye not come. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins. Whether I go, can ye not come. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, & shall die in your sins: Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:22 Therefore the Jews said, Whether he shall slay himself, for he saith, Whither I go, ye may come? Then spake the jews: will he kill himself, because he saith: whither I go, thither can ye not come? Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself because he saith, Whether I go, can ye not come? Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
8:23 And he said to them, Ye be of beneath, I am of above; ye be of this world, I am not of this world. And he said unto them: ye are from beneath, I am from above. Ye are of this world, I am not of this world. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath: I am from above: ye are of this world: I am not of this world. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath, I am from above: Ye are of this world, I am not of this world.
8:24 Therefore I said to you, that ye shall die in your sins; for if ye believe not that I am, ye shall die in your sins. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins. For except ye believe that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. I said therefore unto you, That ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe, that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. 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.
8:25 Therefore they said to him, Who art thou? Jesus said to them, The beginning the which and I speak to you. Then said they unto him, who art thou? And Jesus said unto them: Even the very same thing that I say unto you. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus said unto them, Even the same thing that I said unto you from the beginning. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
8:26 I have many things to speak, and to deem of you, but he that sent me is soothfast; and I speak in the world these things, that I heard of him. I have many things to say, and to judge of you. But he that sent me is true. And I speak in the world, those things which I have heard of him. I have many things to say, and to judge of you: but he that sent me, is true, and the things that I have heard of him, those speak I to the world. 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.
8:27 And they knew not, for he said his Father God. They understood not that he spake of his father. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
8:28 Therefore Jesus said to them, When ye have araised man’s Son, then ye shall know, that I am, and of myself I do nothing; but as my Father taught me, I speak these things. Then said Jesus unto them: When ye have lift up on high 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, even so I speak. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lift 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, so I speak these things. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lift 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.
8:29 And he that sent me is with me, and left not me alone; for I do ever those things, that be pleasant to him. And he that sent me is with me. My father hath not left me alone, For I do always those things that please him. For he that sent me, is with me: the Father hath not left me alone, because I do always those things that please him. And he that sent me, is with me: the Father hath not left me alone: for I do always those things that please him.
8:30 When he spake these things, many believed in him. As he spake these words, many believed on him. As he spake these things, many believed in him. As he spake those words, many believed on him.
8:31 Therefore Jesus said to the Jews, that believed in him, If ye dwell in my word, verily ye shall be my disciples; Then said Jesus to those jews which believed on him: If ye continue in my saying, then are ye my very disciples: Then said Jesus to the Jews which believed in him, If ye continue in my word, ye are verily my disciples, Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.
8:32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. and ye shall know the truth: And the truth shall make you free And shall know the truth, & the truth shall make you free. And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.
8:33 Therefore the Jews answered to him, We be the seed of Abraham, and we served never no man; how sayest thou, Ye shall be free? They answered him: We are Abraham’s seed, and were never bond to any man: why sayest thou then: ye shall be made free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never bond to any man: why sayest thou then, Ye shall be made free? They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
8:34 Jesus answered to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, each man that doeth sin, is the servant of sin. Jesus answered them: verily verily I say unto you, that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily I say unto you, that whosoever commiteth sin, is the servant of sin. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant dwelleth not in the house into without end, but the Son dwelleth into without end. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: But the son abideth ever. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth for ever. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
8:36 Therefore if the Son shall make you free, verily ye shall be free. If the son therefore shall make you free, then are ye free indeed. If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that ye be Abraham’s sons, but ye seek to slay me, for my word taketh not in you. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed: but ye seek means to kill me because my sayings have no place in you. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed, but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed, but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
8:38 I speak those things, that I saw at my Father; and ye do those things, that ye saw at your father. I speak that I have seen with my father: And ye do that which ye have seen with your father. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered, and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them, If ye be the sons of Abraham, do ye the works of Abraham. They answered and said unto him: Abraham is our father. Jesus said unto them. If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the deeds of Abraham. They answered, and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 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.
8:40 But now ye seek to slay me, a man that have spoken to you the truth, that I heard of God; Abraham did not this thing. But now ye go about to kill me, a man that have told you the truth, which I have heard of my father. This did not Abraham. But now ye go about to kill me, a man that have told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 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.
8:41 Ye do the works of your father. And so they said to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, God. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they unto him: we were not born of fornication. We have one father that is god. Ye do the works of your father. Then said they to him, We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, which is God. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication, we have one Father, even God.
8:42 But Jesus saith to them, If God were your Father, soothly ye should love me; forsooth I proceeded of God, and came; for neither I came of myself, but he sent me. Jesus said unto them: if god were your father, then would ye have loved me. For I proceed forth and come from god. Neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Therefore Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, then would ye love me: for I proceeded forth, & came from God, neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me, for I proceeded forth, and came from God: neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43 Why know ye not my speech? for ye be not able to hear my word. Why do ye not know my speech? Because ye cannot abide the hearing of my words. Why do ye not understand my talk? because ye cannot hear my word. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
8:44 Ye be of the father, the devil, and ye will do the desires of your father. He was a manslayer from the beginning, and he stood not in truth; for truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lying, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and father of it. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father, ye will follow: He was a murderer from the beginning, And abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, then speaketh he of his own. For he is a liar, and the father thereof. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he hath been a murderer from the beginning, & abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, then speaketh he of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
8:45 But for I say truth, ye believe not to me. And because I tell you the truth, therefore believe ye not me. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46 Who of you shall reprove me of sin? if I say truth, why believe ye not to me? Which of you can rebuke me of sin? If I say the truth, why do not ye believe me? Which of you can rebuke me of sin? and if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God, heareth the words of God; therefore ye hear not, for ye be not of God. He that is of God, heareth god’s words. Ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. He that is of God, heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. He that is of God, heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
8:48 Therefore the Jews answered, and said to him, Whether we say not well, that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? Then answered the jews and said unto him: Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan and hast the devil? Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, & hast a devil?
8:49 Jesus answered, and said, I have not a devil, but I honour my Father, and ye have unhonoured me. Jesus answered: I have not the devil: but I honour my father, and ye have dishonoured me. Jesus answered, I have not a devil, but I honour my Father, and ye have dishonored me. Jesus answered, I have not a devil: but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
8:50 For I seek not my glory; there is he, that seeketh, and deemeth. I seek not mine own praise: There is one that seeketh it and judgeth. And I seek not mine own praise: but there is one that seeketh it, and judgeth. And I seek not mine own glory, there is one that seeketh & judgeth.
8:51 Truly, truly, I say to you, if any man shall keep my word, he shall not see death into without end. Verily verily I say unto you, if a man keep my sayings, he shall never see death. Verily, verily I say unto you, If a man keep my word, he shall never see death. Verily, verily I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
8:52 Therefore the Jews said, Now we have known, that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets, and thou sayest, If any man keep my word, he shall not taste death into without end. Then said the jews to him: Now know we that thou hast the devil. Abraham is dead, and also the prophets, and yet thou sayest: if a man keep my saying he shall never taste of death. Then said the Jews to him, Now know we that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the Prophets, and thou sayest, If a man keep my word, he shall never taste of death. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the Prophets: and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
8:53 Whether thou art greater than our father Abraham, that is dead, and the prophets be dead; whom makest thou thyself? Art thou greater than our father Abraham? which is dead? and the prophets are dead. Whom makest thou thyself? Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the Prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the Prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nought; my Father is, that glorifieth me, whom ye say, that he is your God. Jesus answered: If I praise myself, my praise is nothing worth. It is my father that praiseth me, which ye say is your God. Jesus answered, If I honour myself, mine honour is nothing worth: it is my Father that honoureth me, whom ye say, that he is your God. Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me, of whom ye say, that he is your God:
8:55 And ye have not known him, but I have known him; and if I shall say that I know him not, I shall be a liar like to you; but I know him, and I keep his word. And yet have ye not known him: but I know him. And if I should say, I know him not, I should be a liar like unto you. but I know him, and keep his saying. Yet ye have not known him: but I know him, and if I should say I know him not, I should be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his word. Yet ye have not known him, but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
8:56 Abraham, your father, gladded that he should see my day; and he saw, and joyed. Your father Abraham was glad to see my day, and he saw it and rejoiced. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he saw it, and was glad. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, & was glad.
8:57 Then the Jews said to him, Thou hast not yet fifty years, and hast thou seen Abraham? Then said the jews unto him: Thou art not yet fifty year old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty year old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58 Therefore Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, before that Abraham was made, I am. Jesus said unto them: Verily verily I say unto you: ere Abraham was I am. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Therefore they took stones, to cast to him; but Jesus hid him, and went out of the temple. Then took they up stones, to cast at him. but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple. Then took they up stones, to cast at him, but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the Temple. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the Temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
