39 oYou search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and pthese are they which testify of Me. 40 qBut you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
41 r“I do not receive honor from men. 42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 44 sHow can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek tthe honor that comes from the only God? 45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; uthere is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you trust. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; vfor he wrote about Me. 47 But if you wdo not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
