And if I say, 'I do not know Him,' I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and u keep His word. 56 "Your father Abraham v rejoiced to see My day, w and he saw it and was glad." 57 Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?" 58 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, x before Abraham was, y I AM." 59 Then z they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, a going 2 through the midst of them, and so passed by.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
