John 5:25-47 Darby’s Translation

25  Verily, verily, I say unto you, that an hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that have heard shall live. 26  For even as the Father has life in himself, so he has given to the Son also to have life in himself, 27  and has given him authority to execute judgment [also], because he is Son of man. 28  Wonder not at this, for an hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29  and shall go forth; those that have practised good, to resurrection of life, and those that have done evil, to resurrection of judgment.

Witnesses to Jesus

30  I cannot do anything of myself; as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I do not seek my will, but the will of him that has sent me.

31  If I bear witness concerning myself, my witness is not true. 32  It is another who bears witness concerning me, and I know that the witness which he bears concerning me is true. 33  Ye have sent unto John, and he has borne witness to the truth. 34  But I do not receive witness from man, but I say this that ye might be saved. 35  He was the burning and shining lamp, and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36  But I have the witness [that is] greater than [that] of John; for the works which the Father has given me that I should complete them, the works themselves which I do, bear witness concerning me that the Father has sent me. 37  And the Father who has sent me himself has borne witness concerning me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor have seen his shape, 38  and ye have not his word abiding in you; for whom he hath sent, him ye do not believe. 39  Ye search the scriptures, for ye think that in them ye have life eternal, and they it is which bear witness concerning me; 40  and ye will not come to me that ye might have life. 41  I do not receive glory from men, 42  but I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not; if another come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44  How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and seek not the glory which [comes] from God alone? 45  Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is [one] who accuses you, Moses, on whom ye trust; 46  for if ye had believed Moses, ye would have believed me, for he wrote of me. 47  But if ye do not believe his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
