31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you n abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 "And you shall know the o truth, and p the truth shall make you free." 33 They answered Him, q "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, 'You will be made free'?"
34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, r whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 "And s a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 t "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. 37 "I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but u you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 v "I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have 1 seen with your father."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
