22 The Jews, therefore, said, "Will He kill Himself?" because He said, "Whither 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 will die in your sins; for, unless ye believe that I am He, ye will die in your sins."
