8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
1 Whereupon Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
IHS = ENG.Jesus AR.Yeshua
Jesus: universal language
8:2 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.
2 Early the next day, He returned to the Temple, and there the people came to Him in crowds. He seated Himself and was teaching them:
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
3 When the Scribes and the Pharisees brought to Him a woman who had been found committing adultery. They made her stand in the center of the court.
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
4 And they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been found in the act of committing adultery.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what says you?
5 Now, in the Law, Moses gave charge for such women to be stoned to death. But what do you say?"
8:6 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.
6 They asked this to put Him to the test, so that they might bring an accusation against Him. But Jesus bowed down and began to write with His finger on the ground.
8:7 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.
7 When they were insistent, He rose up and said to them, "Let the one without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her."
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8 Then He bowed down again, and began to write on the ground.
8:9 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.
9 They heard Him, and then, beginning with the eldest, took leave, one by one, until all were gone. Jesus was left behind alone, except for the woman in the center of the court.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those your accusers? has no man condemned you?
10 Then raising up and seeing only the adulteress there, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are your accusers? Has no one condemned you?"
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.
11 "No one, Sir," she replied. And Jesus said, "I do not condemn you either, go and do not sin anymore."
8:12 Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
12 Once more Jesus began to teach, saying, "I am the Light of the World, anyone who follows me shall not walk in the dark, but shall have the light of Life."
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, You bear record of yourself; your record is not true.
13 "You only testify about yourself," said the Pharisees; "your testimony is not valid."
8:14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and where I go; but all of you cannot tell whence I come, and where I go.
14 "Even if I give evidence about myself," replied Jesus, "my testimony is true; for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I came from or where I go.
8:15 All of you judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
15 You judge according to appearances: I do not judge anyone.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
16 And also, if I do judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but the Father who sent me is with me.
8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
17 In your own Law, it is written, `THE TESTIMONY OF TWO WITNESSES IS TRUE´ (DE. 19:15).
8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.
18 I am One giving testimony concerning myself, and the Father who sent me gives testimony about me."
8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, All of you neither know me, nor my Father: if all of you had known me, all of you should have known my Father also.
19 "Where is your Father?" they asked. He replied, "You neither know me nor my Father; if you had known me, you would have known my Father also."
8:20 These words (o. rhema) spoke Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
Treasure guard γαζοφυλακιω (1049)
20 Jesus spoke these words in the Treasury, while teaching in the Temple; yet no one arrested Him, because His hour had not yet come.
8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and all of you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: where I go, all of you cannot come.
21 Again He said to them, "I will go away. And you will try to find me, but you will die in your sins. Where I am going, you are not able to come."
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he says, Where I go, all of you cannot come.
22 The Judeans began to ask among themselves, "Is He going to kill Himself, since He says, `Where I am going, you are not able to come´?"
8:23 And he said unto them, All of you are from beneath; I am from above: all of you are of this world; I am not of this world.
23 "You," He explained, "are from below, I am from above: you are of this present world, I am not of this world.
8:24 I said therefore unto you, that all of you shall die in your sins: for if all of you believe not that I am he, all of you shall die in your sins.
24 That is why I told you that you will die in your sins; for, unless you believe that I am [He], you will die in your sins."
I AM (6:20)
8:25 Then said they unto him, Who are you? And Jesus says unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
25 "What, who are you?" they asked. "How is it," replied Jesus, "I speak to you at all.
8:26 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.
26 I speak many things about you and judge you. For the ONE who sent me is true, and what I have heard from HIM, I tell the world."
8:27 They understood not that he spoke to them of the Father.
27 They did not know that He was speaking to them from the Father.
8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When all of you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall all of you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.
28 So Jesus added, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [He]. Of myself I do nothing; but as the Father has taught me, so I teach.
I AM (8:24)
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
29 And the ONE who sent me is with me. HE has not left me alone: for I always do what pleases HIM."
8:30 As he spoke these words, many believed on him.
30 As He spoke, many came to believe in Him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If all of you continue in my word, (o. logos) then are all of you my disciples indeed;
31 Then Jesus said to those of the Judeans who now believed in Him, "As for you, if you hold to my teaching, then you are truly my disciples;
8:32 And all of you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how says you, All of you shall be made free?
33 They responded, "We descend from Abraham, and have not been beholden (1)(2) to anyone at any time. What do you mean by saying, `You shall be made free´?"
(1) EX. 1:14, Hard bondage.
(2) MIC. 6:4, Egypt was house of servitude.
8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
34 "In all truthfulness, I tell you," replied Jesus, "that everyone who commits sin is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abides ever.
35 Now a servant does not always remain in the house, but a son does.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, all of you shall be free indeed.
36 If then, the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that all of you are Abraham's seed; but all of you seek to kill me, because my word (o. logos) has no place in you.
37 I know you are descendants of Abraham; but you want to kill me, because you do not receive my teaching.
8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and all of you do that which all of you have seen with your father.
38 I speak about what I have seen from my Father. You, of course, are doing what you have seen from your father."
8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus says unto them, If all of you were Abraham's children, all of you would do the works of Abraham.
39 They said, "Our father is Abraham." Jesus answered, "If you were Abraham's children, you would be doing the deeds of Abraham.
8:40 But now all of you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
40 But now you want to kill me, a man who has spoken the truth which He heard from God. Abraham did not do this.
8:41 All of you do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
41 I repeat, you are doing the deeds of your father." [Indignant] They replied, "We are not illegitimate children. We do have one Father, even God."
8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, all of you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
42 "If God were your Father," said Jesus, "you would love me; for I came from God and I am here not of myself, but of HE that sent me.
8:43 Why do all of you not understand my speech? even because all of you cannot hear my word. (o. logos)
43 How is it you do not understand my manner of speaking, that you are unable to listen to my words?
8:44 All of you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father all of you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
LATIN vos de patre diavolo
44 You father is the devil; and you desire to do what pleasures him. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand firm in the truth—there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks lies, he speaks what is his own; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.
8:45 And because I tell you the truth, all of you believe me not.
45 But even though I speak the truth, you do not believe me.
8:46 Which of you convinces me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do all of you not believe me?
46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God hears God's words: (o. rhema) all of you therefore hear them not, because all of you are not of God.
47 Only one who is a child of God listens to God's words. You do not listen to them because you are not God's children."
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan, and have a devil?
48 "Do we not say rightly," answered the Judeans, "that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?"
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and all of you do dishonour me.
49 "I am not possessed by a demon," replied Jesus. "But I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeks and judges.
50 I do not seek my own glory; there is ONE seeking and also judging.
8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, (o. logos) he shall never see death.
51 In all truthfulness, I tell you that if anyone obeys my teaching that person shall never see death."
8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that you have a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you says, If a man keep my saying, (o. logos) he shall never taste of death.
52 "Now," exclaimed the Judeans, "we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and so did the Prophets, and yet you say, `If anyone obeys my teaching, that person shall not be subject to death.´
8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom make you yourself?
53 Are you greater than our forefather Abraham who died, and the Prophets who died? Who do you make yourself out to be?"
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom all of you say, that he is your God:
54 "Were I to glorify myself," answered Jesus, "I should have no glory. There is ONE who glorifies me, namely my Father, who you say is your God.
8:55 Yet all of you 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. (o. logos)
Liar ψευστης (5583)
55 You do not know HIM, yet I know HIM; and should I but deny my knowledge of HIM, I would be like you, a liar. But I do know HIM, and I obey HIS teaching.
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
56 Abraham your forefather rejoiced in the hope of seeing my day: and he saw, and was glad."
8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?
57 Then the Judeans said, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham or he you?"
8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
58 "In all truthfulness," answered Jesus, "I tell you that before Abraham came into existence, I AM."
The Great I AM (8:28)
8:59 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.
59 Then they gathered up stones to throw at Him, but He hid Himself and went out of the Temple, passing through their midst.
