32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
32 There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is true.
32 There is another who bears witness about me, and I know that the testimony that he bears about me is true.
32 But an independent witness confirms me, the most reliable Witness of all.
32 There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true.
32 But someone else is also testifying about me, and I assure you that everything he says about me is true.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on John 5:32
Commentary on John 5:30-38
(Read John 5:30-38)
Our Lord returns to his declaration of the entire agreement between the Father and the Son, and declared himself the Son of God. He had higher testimony than that of John; his works bore witness to all he had said. But the Divine word had no abiding-place in their hearts, as they refused to believe in Him whom the Father had sent, according to his ancient promises. The voice of God, accompanied by the power of the Holy Ghost, thus made effectual to the conversion of sinners, still proclaims that this is the beloved Son, in whom the Father is well pleased. But when the hearts of men are full of pride, ambition, and the love of the world, there is no room for the word of God to abide in them.
