1 Six days before the festival, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus stayed (whom Jesus had raised from the dead).

1 (A)Jesus, therefore, six days before (B)the Passover, came to (C)Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.

2 They gave a supper for him there; Martha waited on him, and Lazarus was among those who reclined at table beside him.

2 So they made Him a supper there, and (D)Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.

2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.

2 So(C) they gave a dinner for Him there; Martha(D) was serving them, and Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.

2 There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him.

3 Then Mary, taking a pound of expensive perfume, real nard, anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair, till the house was filled with the scent of the perfume.

3 (E)Mary then took a (a)pound of very costly (F)perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

3 Mary took a litron of very expensive perfume made of pure nard and anointed Jesus' feet. She wiped his feet with her hair, and the house became filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

4 One of his disciples, Judas Iscariot (who was to betray him), said,

4 But (G)Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to (b)betray Him, *said,

4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,

4 Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot(F) (who was about to betray Him), said,

4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, who was going to betray him, asked,

5 "Why was not this perfume sold for ten pounds, and the money given to the poor?"

5 “Why was this perfume not sold for (c)three hundred denarii and given to poor people?”

5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?

5 “Why wasn’t this fragrant oil sold for 300 denarii(b)(G) and given to the poor?”

5 "Why wasn't this perfume sold for 300 denarii and the money given to the destitute?"

6 (Not that he cared for the poor; he said this because he was a thief, and because he carried the money-box and pilfered what was put in.)

6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he (H)had the money box, he used to pilfer (I)what was put into it.

6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

6 He didn’t say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief.(H) He was in charge of the money-bag and would steal part of what was put in it.

6 He said this, not because he cared about the destitute, but because he was a thief. He was in charge of the moneybag and would steal what was put into it.

7 Then said Jesus, "Let her alone, let her keep what she has for the day of my burial.

7 Therefore Jesus said, “Let her alone, so that she may keep (d)it for (J)the day of My burial.

7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.

7 Jesus answered, “Leave her alone; she has kept it for the day of My burial.(I)

7 Then Jesus said, "Leave her alone so she can observe the day of my burial,

8 You have always the poor beside you, but you have not always me."

8 (K)For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me.”

8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

8 For you always have the poor with you,(J) but you do not always have Me.”

8 because you will always have the destitute with you, but you won't always have me."

The Decision To Kill Lazarus

9 Now the great mass of the Jews learned he was there, and they came not only on account of Jesus but to see Lazarus whom he had raised from the dead.

9 The (L)large crowd of the Jews then learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, (M)whom He raised from the dead.

9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

9 Then a large crowd of the Jews learned He was there. They came not only because of Jesus, but also to see Lazarus the one He had raised from the dead.(K)

9 When the large crowd of Jews realized that he was there, they came not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.

10 So the high priests planned to kill Lazarus as well,

10 But the chief priests planned to put Lazarus to death also;

10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

10 Therefore the chief priests decided to kill Lazarus also

10 So the high priests planned to kill Lazarus, too,

11 since it was owing to him that a number of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.

11 because (N)on account of him (O)many of the Jews were going away and were believing in Jesus.

11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

11 because he was the reason many of the Jews were deserting them(c) and believing in Jesus.

11 since he was the reason why so many of the Jews were leaving to believe in Jesus.

The Triumphal Entry

12 Next day the great mass of people who had come up for the festival heard that Jesus was entering Jerusalem,

12 On the next day (P)the large crowd who had come to (Q)the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

12 The(L) next day, when the large crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

12 The next day, the large crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming into Jerusalem.

13 and taking palm-branches they went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed be he who comes in the Lord's name, the king of Israel!"

13 took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout, “(R)Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the (S)King of Israel.”

13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

13 they took palm branches(M) and went out to meet Him. They kept shouting: “Hosanna!(N) He who comes in the name of the Lord is the blessed One(O)(d)—the King of Israel!”(P)

13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! How blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel!"

14 And Jesus came across a young ass and seated himself on it; as it is written,

14 Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written,

14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

14 Jesus found a young donkey(Q) and sat on it, just as it is written:

14 Then Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written:

15 Fear not, daughter of Sion; here is your king coming, seated on an ass's colt.

15 (T)Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.”

15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

15 Fear no more,(R) Daughter Zion. Look, your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt.(S)(e)

15 "Stop being afraid, people of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting upon a donkey's colt!"

16 (His disciples did not understand this at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered this had been written of him and had happened to him.)

16 (U)These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus (V)was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him.

16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first. However, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about Him(T) and that they had done these things to Him.

16 At first, his disciples didn't understand these things. However, when Jesus had been glorified, they remembered that these things had been written about him and that people had done these things to him.

People Tell About Jesus

17 Now the people who were with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead, testified to it;

17 So (W)the (e)people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to testify about Him.

17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

17 Meanwhile, the crowd, which had been with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb(U) and raised him from the dead, continued to testify.(f)

17 So the crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to testify to what they had seen.

18 and that was why the crowd went out to meet him, because they heard he had performed this Sign.

18 (X)For this reason also the (f)people went and met Him, (Y)because they heard that He had performed this (g)sign.

18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

18 This is also why the crowd met Him, because they heard He had done this sign.

18 The crowd was going out to meet Jesus because they had heard that he had performed this sign.

19 Then said the Pharisees to one another, "You see, you can do nothing! Look, the world has gone after him."

19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him.”

19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

19 Then the Pharisees said to one another, “You see? You’ve accomplished nothing. Look—the world has gone after Him!”(V)

19 Then the Pharisees told one another, "You see, there is nothing you can do. Look, the world has gone after him!"

Greeks Seeking Jesus

20 Now there were some Greeks among those who had come up to worship at the festival;

20 Now there were some (Z)Greeks among those who were going up to worship at (AA)the feast;

20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:

20 Now some Greeks were among those who went up to worship at the festival.

20 Now some Greeks were among those who had come up to worship at the festival.

21 they came to Philip of Bethsaida in Galilee and appealed to him, saying, "Sir, we want to see Jesus."

21 these then came to (AB)Philip, who was from (AC)Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”

21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

21 So they came to Philip,(W) who was from Bethsaida(X) in Galilee,(Y) and requested of him, “Sir,(Z) we want to see Jesus.”

21 They went to Philip (who was from Bethsaida in Galilee) and told him, "Sir, we would like to see Jesus."

22 Philip went and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.

22 Philip *came and *told (AD)Andrew; Andrew and Philip *came and *told Jesus.

22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.

22 Philip went and told Andrew;(AA) then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.

22 Philip went and told Andrew, and Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.

23 And Jesus answered, "The hour has come for the Son of man to be glorified.

23 And Jesus *answered them, saying, (AE)The hour has come for the Son of Man to (AF)be glorified.

23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

23 Jesus replied to them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man(AB) to be glorified.

23 Jesus told them, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.

24 Truly, truly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains a single grain; but if it dies, it bears rich fruit.

24 Truly, truly, I say to you, (AG)unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

24 “I assure you: Unless a grain of wheat(AC) falls to the ground and dies, it remains by itself. But if it dies, it produces a large crop.(g)(AD)

24 Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it produces a lot of grain.

25 He who loves his life loses it, and he who cares not for his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.

25 (AH)He who loves his (h)life loses it, and he who (AI)hates his (i)life in this world will keep it to life eternal.

25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

25 The one who loves his life will lose it,(AE) and the one who hates(AF) his life(AG) in this world will keep it for eternal life.

25 The one who loves his life will destroy it, and the one who hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.

26 If anyone serves me, let him follow me, and where I am, there shall my servant be also: if anyone serves me, my Father will honour him.

26 If anyone (j)serves Me, he must follow Me; and (AJ)where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone (k)serves Me, the Father will (AK)honor him.

26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

26 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there My servant(AH) also will be.(AI) If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor(AJ) him.

26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me. And where I am, there my servant will also be. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him."

Jesus Predicts His Death

27 My soul is now disquieted. What am I to say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? Nay, it is something else that has brought me to this hour:

27 (AL)Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘(AM)Father, save Me from (AN)this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.

27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

27 “Now My soul is troubled. What should I say—Father, save Me(AK) from this hour? But that is why I came to this hour.

27 "Now my soul is in turmoil, and what should I say "Father, save me from this hour'? No! It was for this very reason that I came to this hour.

28 I will say, 'Father, glorify thy name.'" Then came a voice from heaven, "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again."

28 (AO)Father, glorify Your name.” Then a (AP)voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

28 Father, glorify Your name!”(h)(AL)Then a voice(AM) came from heaven:(AN) “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again!”(AO)

28 Father, glorify your name."

29 When they heard the sound, the people standing by said it had thundered; others said, "An angel spoke to him."

29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered; others were saying, “(AQ)An angel has spoken to Him.”

29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

29 The crowd standing there heard it and said it was thunder. Others said that an angel had spoken to Him.

29 Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again!" The crowd standing there heard this and said that it was thunder. Others were saying, "An angel has spoken to him."

30 Jesus answered, "This voice did not come for my sake but for yours.

30 Jesus answered and said, (AR)This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes.

30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

30 Jesus responded, “This voice came, not for Me, but for you.(AP)

30 Jesus replied, "This voice is for your benefit, not for mine.

31 Now is this world to be judged; now the Prince of this world will be expelled.

31 (AS)Now judgment is upon this world; now (AT)the ruler of this world will be cast out.

31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

31 Now is the judgment of this world.(AQ) Now the ruler of this world(AR) will be cast out.(AS)

31 Now is the time for the judgment of this world to begin. Now the ruler of this world will be thrown out.

32 But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself."

32 And I, if I (AU)am lifted up from the earth, will (AV)draw all men to Myself.”

32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

32 As for Me, if I am lifted up(i) from the earth I will draw all people to Myself.”(AT)

32 As for me, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people to myself."

33 (By this he indicated the kind of death he was to die.)

33 But He was saying this (AW)to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.

33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

33 He said this to signify what kind of death He was about to die.(AU)

33 He said this to indicate the kind of death he was about to die.

34 So the people answered, "We have learned from the Law that the Christ is to remain for ever; what do you mean by saying that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man?"

34 The crowd then answered Him, “We have heard out of (AX)the Law that (l)(AY)the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, ‘The (AZ)Son of Man must be (BA)lifted up’? Who is this (BB)Son of Man?”

34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

34 Then the crowd replied to Him, “We have heard from the scripture that the Messiah will remain forever.(AV) So how can You say, ‘The Son of Man(AW) must be lifted up’?(j) Who is this Son of Man?”

34 Then the crowd answered him, "We have learned from the Law that the Messiah remains forever. So how can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?"

35 Then Jesus said to them, "The Light will shine among you for a little longer yet; walk while you have the Light, that the darkness may not overtake you. He who walks in the dark does not know where he is going.

35 So Jesus said to them, (BC)For a little while longer (BD)the Light is among you. (BE)Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who (BF)walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.

35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

35 Jesus answered, “The light will be with you only a little longer.(AX) Walk while you have the light(AY) so that darkness doesn’t overtake you.(AZ) The one who walks in darkness doesn’t know where he’s going.(BA)

35 Jesus replied to the crowd, "The light is among you only for a short time. Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness may not overtake you. The person who walks in the darkness is in the darkness and does not know where he is going.

The Unbelief Of The People

36 While you have the Light, believe in the Light, that you may be sons of the Light." [vss 36b to

36 While you have the Light, (BG)believe in the Light, so that you may become (BH)sons of Light.”These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and (m)(BI)hid Himself from them.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

36 While you have the light,(BB) believe in the light so that you may become sons of light.” Jesus said this, then went away and hid from them.(BC)

36 As long as you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light." After Jesus had said this, he went away and hid from them.

The People Still Refuse To Believe

37 Now for all the Signs he had performed before them, they did not believe in him ??38 that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: Lord, who has believed what they heard from us, And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

37 But though He had performed so many (n)signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him.

37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

37 Even though He had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in Him.

37 Although he had performed numerous signs in their presence, they did not believe in him,

38 This was why they could not believe; for Isaiah again said,

38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke: “(BJ)Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

38 But this was to fulfill(BD) the word of Isaiah(BE) the prophet, who said:(k)Lord, who has believed our message?And who has the arm(BF) of the Lordbeen revealed to?(BG)(l)

38 so that what the prophet Isaiah spoke might be fulfilled when he said: "Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the Lord's power been revealed?"

39 He has blinded their eyes and made their hearts insensible, to prevent them seeing with their eyes and understanding with their hearts and turning for me to cure them.

39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again,

39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

39 This is why they were unable to believe, because Isaiah also said:

39 This is why they could not believe: Isaiah also said,

40 (Isaiah said this because he saw his glory and spoke of him.)

40 (BK)He has blinded their eyes and He (BL)hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and perceive with their heart, and (o)be converted and I heal them.”

40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

40 He has blinded(BH) their eyesand hardened their hearts,(BI)so that they would not see with their eyesor understand with their hearts,and be converted,(BJ)and I would heal them.(BK)(m)

40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they might not perceive with their eyes, and understand with their mind and turn, and I would heal them."

41 Still, a number even of the authorities believed in him, though they would not confess it on account of the Pharisees, in case of being excommunicated;

41 These things Isaiah said because (BM)he saw His glory, and (BN)he spoke of Him.

41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

41 Isaiah said these things because(n) he saw His glory(BL) and spoke about Him.

41 Isaiah said this when he saw his glory and spoke about him.

42 are relocated after vs 50] With these words Jesus went away and hid from them.

42 Nevertheless (BO)many even of (BP)the rulers believed in Him, but (BQ)because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be (p)(BR)put out of the synagogue;

42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

42 Nevertheless, many did believe in Him even among the rulers,(BM) but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, so they would not be banned from the synagogue.

42 Yet many people, even some of the authorities, believed in him, but because of the Pharisees they did not admit it so they would not be thrown out of the synagogue.

43 they preferred the approval of men to the approval of God.

43 (BS)for they loved the (q)approval of men rather than the (r)approval of God.

43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

43 For they loved praise from men(BN) more than praise from God.(o)(BO)

43 For they loved the praise of human beings more than the praise of God.

Jesus' Final Public Appeal

44 And Jesus cried aloud, "He who believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me,

44 And Jesus cried out and said, (BT)He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me.

44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

44 Then Jesus cried out, “The one who believes in Me(BP) believes not in Me, but in Him who sent Me.

44 Then Jesus said loudly, "The one who believes in me does not believe in me only, but also in the one who sent me.

45 and he who beholds me beholds him who sent me.

45 (BU)He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me.

45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

45 And the one who sees Me sees Him(BQ) who sent Me.

45 The one who sees me sees the one who sent me.

46 I have come as light into the world, that no one who believes in me may remain in the dark.

46 (BV)I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

46 I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me would not remain in darkness.

46 I've come into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me won't remain in the darkness.

47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, it is not I who judge him; for I have not come to judge the world but to save the world.

47 If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for (BW)I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

47 If anyone hears My words and doesn’t keep(BR) them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world(BS) but to save the world.(BT)

47 If anyone hears my words and doesn't keep them, I don't condemn him, because I didn't come to condemn the world, but to save it.

48 He who rejects me and will not receive my words has indeed a judge: the word I have spoken will judge him on the last day,

48 (BX)He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; (BY)the word I spoke is what will judge him at (BZ)the last day.

48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

48 The one who rejects Me(BU) and doesn’t accept My sayings has this as his judge:(p) The word I have spoken will judge him on the last day.(BV)

48 The one who rejects me and doesn't receive my words has something to judge him: The word that I've spoken will judge him on the last day,

49 for I have not spoken of my own accord ??the Father who sent me, he it was who ordered me what to say and what to speak.

49 (CA)For I did not speak (s)on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me (CB)has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.

49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

49 For I have not spoken on My own, but the Father(BW) Himself who sent Me has given Me a command as to what I should say and what I should speak.

49 because I haven't spoken on my own authority. Instead, the Father who sent me has himself commanded me what to say and how to speak.

50 And I know his orders mean eternal life. Therefore when I speak, I speak as the Father has told me."

50 I know that (CC)His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak (CD)just as the Father has told Me.”

50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

50 I know that His command is eternal life.(BX) So the things that I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.”(BY)
