John 8:42: Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
John 8:43: Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
John 8:44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:45: And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
John 8:46: Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
John 8:47: He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
(KJV)
