37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but uyou seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 vI speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have 5seen with your father.”
39 They answered and said to Him, w“Abraham is our father.”
Jesus said to them, x“If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40 yBut now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth zwhich I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. 41 You do the deeds of your father.”
Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; awe have one Father—God.”
42 Jesus said to them, b“If God were your Father, you would love Me, for cI proceeded forth and came from God; dnor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 eWhy do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 fYou are of your father the devil, and the gdesires of your father you want to hdo. He was a murderer from the beginning, and idoes not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
