It is because you cannot (H)listen to My word. 44 (I)You are of (J)your father the devil, and (K)you want to do the desires of your father. (L)He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because (M)there is no truth in him. Whenever he tells [d]a lie, he (N)speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of [e]lies.
