Ri fariseos y ri aj tzˈibaˈ riˈ xquibij cˈa chare ri Jesús: Tijonel, re jun ixok re kapaban chawech, nimacun riqˈui jun achi ri xilitej pe. Chupan ri ley ri ruyaˈon ca ri Moisés, nubij chi ri yebano quereˈ, quecamisex chi abej. ¿Achique cˈa nabij riyit? ¿Utz o ma utz ta nikacamisaj chi abej re jun ixok reˈ? xechaˈ chare.

12 Tek ri Jesús xchˈo chic cˈa jun bey chique ri winek, xubij cˈa: Yin cˈa riyin ri yisakirisan quicˈaslen ri winek ri yecˈo chuwech re ruwachˈulef. Ri nitzekelben wuche (wixin), can xtril ri sakil riche (rixin) ri rucˈaslen wuqˈui. Y riyaˈ man chic cˈa xtibiyin ta pa kˈekuˈm.

14 Pero ri Jesús xubij cˈa chique ri achiˈaˈ fariseos: Astapeˈ chi xa yin cˈa riyin ri yikˈalajsan ka wiˈ, can kitzij wi cˈa ri nkˈalajsaj ka chuwij. Ruma riyin wetaman achique lugar yin petenak wi, y can chiriˈ cˈa chukaˈ xquitzolin wi.

19 Ri achiˈaˈ fariseos xquibij cˈa chare ri Jesús: ¿Acuchi (achique) cˈa cˈo wi ri Atataˈ? xechaˈ chare. Y ri Jesús xubij cˈa: Riyix ma iwetaman ta ruwech ri Nataˈ, ruma ma iwetaman ta nuwech riyin. Wi ta iwetaman nuwech riyin, can iwetaman ta chukaˈ ruwech ri Nataˈ.

20 Y ya cˈa chˈabel reˈ ri xerubij ri Jesús chique ri winek tek ruchapon quitijoxic, tek quimolon quiˈ ri acuchi (achique) yeyalox wi ca ri ofrenda chiriˈ pa rachoch ri Dios. Y astapeˈ xerubilaˈ chˈabel queriˈ chique ri winek, can majun ri xchapo ta el ri Jesús, ruma ri hora cˈa ma jane napon ta.

Tek ri Jesús xubij chique ri winek chi ma yecowin ta yeˈapon ri nibe wi Riyaˈ

21 Y jun bey chic, ri Jesús xubij cˈa chique: Riyin can xquitzolin wi cˈa, y tek riyix xquinicanoj, man cˈa xquiniwil ta. Xa can chupan cˈa ri imac xquixcom wi. Y ri achique lugar yibe wi riyin, riyix ma yixcowin ta yixapon, xchaˈ ri Jesús.

22 Y yacˈariˈ tek ri achiˈaˈ ri cˈo quikˈij chiquicojol ri israelitas, niquibilaˈ cˈa chiquiwech: ¿La xtucamisaj cami cˈa riˈ? Ruma nubij: Ri acuchi (achique) xquibe wi riyin, riyix ma yixcowin ta yixapon, xchaˈ, yechaˈ cˈa ri achiˈaˈ riˈ.

23 Pero ri Jesús xubij cˈa chique: Riyix can yix aj ruwachˈulef wi y riyin yin aj chilaˈ chicaj. Can yix riche (rixin) wi re ruwachˈulef, yacˈa riyin ma yin riche (rixin) ta re ruwachˈulef. 24 Y can rumariˈ xinbij cˈa chiwe chi chupan ri imac yixcom wi, ruma wi xa ma yininimaj ta yin achique cˈa riyin, can xquixcom na wi chupan ri imac, xchaˈ.

25 Yacˈariˈ tek ri achiˈaˈ riˈ xquibij chic cˈa chare ri Jesús: ¿Yit achique cˈa riyit? Y ri Jesús xubij chique: Riyin, can yacˈa tek nchapon pe tzij iwuqˈui, can yacˈariˈ tek nbin pe chiwe yin achique riyin. 26 Can cˈo cˈa qˈuiy ri nbij chiwij riche (rixin) chi nkˈet tzij pan iwiˈ ruma ma utz ta ri yixtajin chubanic. Pero ri yin takayon pe, can kitzij wi y ya ri wacˈaxan pe riqˈui Riyaˈ, yariˈ nbij chiwe riyix y chique quinojel ri winek ri yecˈo chuwech re ruwachˈulef, xchaˈ ri Jesús.

27 Pero riyeˈ ma xkˈax ta chiquiwech ri xbix chique ruma ri Jesús, chi can chrij ri Tataˈixel nichˈo wi. 28 Ri Jesús xubij chic cˈa: Ri kˈij cˈa tek xquinijotobaˈ chuwech cruz riyin ri Cˈajolaxel ri xinalex chicojol, cˈa yacˈariˈ tek xtiwetamaj yin achique cˈa riyin.

30 Y ruma cˈa re tzij re xerutzijolaˈ ri Jesús chique ri winek, ye qˈuiy cˈa ri xeniman riche (rixin).

Ri xqueniman ri kitzij can xquecolotej wi

31 Yacˈariˈ tek ri Jesús xubij cˈa chique ri achiˈaˈ israelitas ri cˈo quikˈij ri xeniman riche (rixin): Wi riyix can xquixcˈojeˈ jabel chupan ri nuchˈabel, can xquixoc cˈa kitzij tzekelbey wuche (wixin). 32 Xtiwetamaj cˈa chukaˈ achique ri kas kitzij; y ri kas kitzij xtuben cˈa chiwe chi xquixtotej chuwech ronojel.

33 Y ri winek riˈ xquibij cˈa: Riyoj can yoj riy rumam ca ri Abraham, y rumariˈ ma xojcˈojeˈ ta chuxeˈ quitzij nicˈaj chic winek. ¿Achique cˈa ruma tek nabij chake chi yojtotej chuwech ronojel?

34 Pero ri Jesús xubij chique: Can kitzij cˈa re nbij chiwe: Quinojel cˈa winek ri yemacun, can nikˈalajin chi ye ximil pa rukˈaˈ ri mac. 35 Y jun mozo ri ximil pa samaj riqˈui jun patrón ma xticˈojeˈ ta ka jurayil pa rachoch ri patrón riˈ ruma xa xtelesex el.

Can ya ri iwacˈaxan riqˈui ri oconek itataˈ ri yixtajin chubanic.

Tek ri Jesús xubij chique ri israelitas chi xa ya ri itzel winek oconek quitataˈ

39 Y riyeˈ xquibij cˈa chare ri Jesús: Ri Abraham yariˈ ri katataˈ riyoj, xechaˈ. Y ri Jesús xubij chique: Xa ta yix ralcˈual ri Abraham, can ta ya ri utz ri xerubanalaˈ riyaˈ, can ta yariˈ ri yixtajin chubanic riyix. 40 Pero ma que ta riˈ niben. Riyix xa nicanoj achique rubanic niben riche (rixin) chi yinicamisaj riyin ri ntzijoj ri kitzij chiwe ri wacˈaxan pe riqˈui ri Dios.

Y riyeˈ xquibij cˈa chare: Riyoj ma caˈiˈ oxiˈ ta ri katataˈ. Xa can xu (xe wi) cˈa Jun ri Katataˈ, y riˈ ya ri Dios, xechaˈ.

42 Yacˈariˈ tek ri Jesús xubij cˈa chique ri winek riˈ: Xa ta can ya ri Dios ri Itataˈ, can ta nikˈalajin, ruma yiniwajoˈ ta y yinicˈul ta jabel; ruma riyin can riqˈui ri Dios yin elenak wi pe y xinocˈulun chicojol. Y ma nuyonil ta riyin xinchˈob chi xipe chuwech re ruwachˈulef. Can ya wi ri Dios ri yin takayon pe. 43 ¿Achique cˈa ruma tek riyix ma nikˈax ta chiwech ri nbij chiwe? Ruma ma niwajoˈ ta niwacˈaxaj ri nuchˈabel. 44 Ri itataˈ riyix xa ya ri itzel winek y can yix riche (rixin) cˈa riyaˈ; y ya ri nika chuwech riyaˈ, yariˈ ri yixtajin chubanic. Ri itzel winek can pa rutiquiribel ruchapon wi pe nicamisan. Man cˈa xcˈojeˈ ta chic chupan ri kitzij, ruma xa can majun cˈa ri kitzij ri cˈo ta riqˈui.

Y wi can jabel nikˈalajin chi majun mac pa nucˈaslen y can ruyon kitzij ri nbij, ¿achique cˈa ruma tek ma yininimaj ta? 47 Ruma ri jun winek ri can riche (rixin) chic cˈa ri Dios, ya ri nubij ri ruchˈabel ri Dios ri nuben. Yacˈa riyix ma niben ta ri nbij, ruma ma yix riche (rixin) ta ri Dios, xchaˈ ri Jesús.

Ri Cristo xa can cˈo wi tek cˈa ma jane cˈo ta rutzijol chi nalex ri Abraham

48 Y ri achiˈaˈ israelitas ri cˈo quikˈij, xquibij cˈa chare ri Jesús: Kitzij wi cˈa ri nikabij chawij chi riyit xa yit jun winek ri yape pa Samaria y cˈo itzel espíritu awuqˈui, xechaˈ chare.

John 8 New International Version (NIV)

but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

11 “No one, sir,” she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”


Dispute Over Jesus’ Testimony

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

13 The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.”

14 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true. 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.”

19 Then they asked him, “Where is your father?”

“You do not know me or my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew me, you would know my Father also.” 20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple courts near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his hour had not yet come.

Dispute Over Who Jesus Is

21 Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.”

22 This made the Jews ask, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, ‘Where I go, you cannot come’?”

23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins.”

25 “Who are you?” they asked.

“Just what I have been telling you from the beginning,” Jesus replied. 26 “I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is trustworthy, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.”

27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. 28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up[a] the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.” 30 Even as he spoke, many believed in him.

Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[b]

39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.

“If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would[c] do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.”

“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

Jesus’ Claims About Himself

48 The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?”

49 “I am not possessed by a demon,” said Jesus, “but I honor my Father and you dishonor me. 50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge. 51 Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death.”

52 At this they exclaimed, “Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that whoever obeys your word will never taste death. 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?”

54 Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me. 55 Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and obey his word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”

57 “You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”

58 “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” 59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
