not that any man hath seen the father, except him who is come from God, he hath seen the father.
no man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten son, who is intimate with the father, hath made him known.
and the father who sent me, hath himself born witness of me. his voice you have never heard, nor ever seen his appearance,
no man hath ever seen God. if we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and our love for him is then sincere.
my father has instructed me in every thing: and no one knoweth the son, except the father: nor does any one know the father, except the son, and he to whom the son is pleased to reveal him."
the management of every thing is committed to me by my father: no one knows what character the son is invested with, except the father; nor who the father is, except the son, and he to whom the son shall please to reveal it.
then said they to him, where is thy father: Jesus answered, ye neither know me, nor my father: if ye knew me, ye would have known my father also.
yet ye have not known him, but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I should be a lyar like you: but I know him, and observe his commands.
Jesus said to him, have I been with you so long, and don't you know me yet? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father; why then do you say, shew us the father?
if I had not done among them such works as no other ever did, they had been innocent: but though they have seen them, yet they hate both me and my father.
who alone is essentially immortal, dwelling in that inaccessible light, which no mortal ever saw, or can see: to whom belongs everlasting honour and empire. amen.
