John 8:1-27 Darby’s Translation

8 1  But Jesus went to the mount of Olives. 2  And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him; and he sat down and taught them. 3  And the scribes and the Pharisees bring [to him] a woman taken in adultery, and having set her in the midst, 4  they say to him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in the very act, committing adultery. 5  Now in the law Moses has commanded us to stone such; thou therefore, what sayest thou? 6  But this they said proving him, that they might have [something] to accuse him [of]. But Jesus, having stooped down, wrote with his finger on the ground. 7  But when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up and said to them, Let him that is without sin among you first cast the stone at her. 8  And again stooping down he wrote on the ground. 9  But they, having heard [that], went out one by one beginning from the elder ones until the last; and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing there. 10  And Jesus, lifting himself up and seeing no one but the woman, said to her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Has no one condemned thee? 11  And she said, No one, sir. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus the Light of the World

12  Again therefore Jesus spoke to 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. 13  The Pharisees therefore said to him, Thou bearest witness concerning thyself; thy witness is not true. 14  Jesus answered and said to them, Even if I bear witness concerning myself, my witness is true, because I know whence I came and whither I go: but ye know not whence I come and whither I go. 15  Ye judge according to the flesh, I judge no one. 16  And if also I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the Father who has sent me. 17  And in your law too it is written that the testimony of two men is true: 18  I am [one] who bear witness concerning myself, and the Father who has sent me bears witness concerning me. 19  They said to him therefore, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye know neither me nor my Father. If ye had known me, ye would have known also my Father. 20  These words spoke he in the treasury, teaching in the temple; and no one took him, for his hour was not yet come.

Whither I Go Ye Cannot Come

21  He said therefore again to them, I go away, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sin; where I go ye cannot come. 22  The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, that he says, Where I go ye cannot come? 23  And he said to them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above. Ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 24  I said therefore to you, that ye shall die in your sins; for unless ye shall believe that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins. 25  They said therefore to him, Who art thou? [And] Jesus said to them, Altogether that which I also say to you. 26  I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but he that has sent me is true, and I, what I have heard from him, these things I say to the world. 27  They knew not that he spoke to them of the Father.
