John 8:1-59 (KJV)
[1] Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

[2] And early in the morning he came again
into the temple, and all the people came
unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

[3] And the scribes and Pharisees brought
unto him a woman taken in adultery;
and when they had set her in the midst,

[4] They say unto him, Master, this woman
was taken in adultery, in the very act.

[5] Now Moses in the law commanded us,
that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

[6] This they said, tempting him, that they
might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down,
and with his finger wrote on the ground,
as though he heard them not.

[7] So when they continued asking him, he
lifted up himself, and said unto them, He
that is without sin among you, let him
first cast a stone at her.

[8] And again he stooped down, and
wrote on the ground.

[9] And they which heard it, being convicted
by their own conscience, went out one by one,
beginning at the eldest, even unto the last:
and Jesus was left alone, and the woman
standing in the midst.

[10] When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw
none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman,
where are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?

[11] She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

[12] Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that followeth
me shall not walk in darkness, but shall
have the light of life.

[13] The Pharisees therefore said unto him,
Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record
is not true.

[14] Jesus answered and said unto them, Though
I bear record of myself, yet my record is true:
for I know whence I came, and whither I go;
but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

[15] Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

[16] And yet if I judge, my judgment is true:
for I am not alone, but I and the Father
that sent me.

[17] It is also written in your law, that the
testimony of two men is true.

[18] I am one that bear witness of myself, and
the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

[19] Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father?
Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father:
if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

[20] These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as
he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands
on him; for his hour was not yet come.

[21] Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way,
and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins:
whither I go, ye cannot come.

[22] Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself?
because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

[23] And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath;
I am from above: ye are of this world;
I am not of this world.

[24] I said therefore unto you, that ye shall
die in your sins: for if ye believe not that
I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

[25] Then said they unto him, Who art thou?
And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that
I said unto you from the beginning.

[26] I have many things to say and to judge
of you: but he that sent me is true; and I
speak to the world those things which
I have heard of him.

[27] They understood not that he spake to
them of the Father.

[28] Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have
lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye
know that I am he, and that I do nothing
of myself; but as my Father hath taught me,
I speak these things.

[29] And he that sent me is with me: the
Father hath not left me alone; for I do
always those things that please him.

[30] As he spake these words, many
believed on him.

[31] Then said Jesus to those Jews which
believed on him, If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;

[32] And ye shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free.

[33] They answered him, We be Abraham's seed,
and were never in bondage to any man: how
sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

[34] Jesus answered them, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin
is the servant of sin.

[35] And the servant abideth not in the house
for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

[36] If the Son therefore shall make you
free, ye shall be free indeed.

[37] I know that ye are Abraham's seed;
but ye seek to kill me, because my word
hath no place in you.

[38] I speak that which I have seen with my
Father: and ye do that which ye have seen
with your father.

[39] They answered and said unto him, Abraham
is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye
were Abraham's children, ye would do the
works of Abraham.

[40] But now ye seek to kill me, a man that
hath told you the truth, which I have heard
of God: this did not Abraham.

[41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said
they to him, We be not born of fornication;
we have one Father, even God.

[42] Jesus said unto them, If God were
your Father, ye would love me: for I
proceeded forth and came from God;
neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

[43] Why do ye not understand my speech? even
because ye cannot hear my word.

[44] Ye are of your father the devil, and the
lusts of your father ye will do. He was a
murderer from the beginning, and abode not
in the truth, because there is no truth
in him. When he speaketh a lie, he
speaketh of his own: for he is a liar,
and the father of it.

[45] And because I tell you the truth,
ye believe me not.

[46] Which of you convinceth me of sin?
And if I say the truth, why do ye not
believe me?

[47] He that is of God heareth God's words:
ye therefore hear them not, because
ye are not of God.

[48] Then answered the Jews, and said
unto him, Say we not well that thou
art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

[49] Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but
I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

[50] And I seek not mine own glory: there
is one that seeketh and judgeth.

[51] Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man
keep my saying, he shall never see death.

[52] Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know
that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and
the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep
my saying, he shall never taste of death.

[53] Art thou greater than our father Abraham,
which is dead? and the prophets are dead:
whom makest thou thyself?

[54] Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my
honour is nothing: it is my Father that
honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

[55] Yet ye have not known him; but I know him:
and if I should say, I know him not, I shall
be a liar like unto you: but I know him,
and keep his saying.

[56] Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:
and he saw it, and was glad.

[57] Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art
not yet fifty years old, and hast
thou seen Abraham?

[58] Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

[59] Then took they up stones to cast at him:
but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple,
going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
