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.
