24 Then came hthe Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou ||make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 25 Jesus answered them, qI told you, and ye believed not: rthe works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, stas I said unto you. 27 tMy sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and uthey shall never perish, wneither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Or, hold us in suspense?
