John 12:27-50 Darby’s Translation

The Son of Man Must Be Lifted Up

27  Now is my soul troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But on account of this have I come to this hour. 28  Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice out of heaven, I both have glorified and will glorify [it] again. 29  The crowd therefore, which stood [there] and heard [it], said that it had thundered. Others said, An angel has spoken to him. 30  Jesus answered and said, Not on my account has this voice come, but on yours. 31  Now is [the] judgment of this world; now shall the prince of this world be cast out: 32  and I, if I be lifted up out of the earth, will draw all to me. 33  But this he said signifying by what death he was about to die. 34  The crowd answered him, We have heard out of the law that the Christ abides for ever; and how sayest thou that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this, the Son of man? 35  Jesus therefore said to them, Yet a little while is the light amongst you. Walk while ye have the light, that darkness may not overtake you. And he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. 36  While ye have the light, believe in the light, that ye may become sons of light. Jesus said these things, and going away hid himself from them.

The Unbelief of the Jews

37  But though he had done so many signs before them, they believed not on him, 38  that the word of the prophet Esaias which he said might be fulfilled, Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39  On this account they could not believe, because Esaias said again, 40  He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, that they may not see with their eyes, and understand with their heart and be converted, and I should heal them. 41  These things said Esaias because he saw his glory and spoke of him.

42  Although indeed from among the rulers also many believed on him, but on account of the Pharisees did not confess [him], that they might not be put out of the synagogue: 43  for they loved glory from men rather than glory from God.

The Judgment of Jesus' Word

44  But Jesus cried and said, He that believes on me, believes not on me, but on him that sent me; 45  and he that beholds me, beholds him that sent me. 46  I am come into the world [as] light, that every one that believes on me may not abide in darkness; 47  and if any one hear my words and do not keep [them], I judge him not, for I am not come that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. 48  He that rejects me and does not receive my words, has him who judges him: the word which I have spoken, that shall judge him in the last day. 49  For I have not spoken from myself, but the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what I should say and what I should speak; 50  and I know that his commandment is life eternal. What therefore I speak, as the Father has said to me, so I speak.
