Witness of the Scripture

39 [a](A)You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is (B)these that testify about Me; 40 and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. 41 (C)I do not receive glory from men; 42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves. 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; (D)if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. 44 How can you believe, when you (E)receive [b]glory from one another and you do not seek (F)the [c]glory that is from (G)the one and only God? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is (H)Moses, in whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for (I)he wrote about Me. 47 But (J)if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
