John 8:24-32 ESV
(24) I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins." (25) So they said to him, "Who are you?" Jesus said to them, "Just what I have been telling you from the beginning. (26) I have much to say about you and much to judge, but he who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him." (27) They did not understand that he had been speaking to them about the Father. (28) So Jesus said to them, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. (29) And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him." (30) As he was saying these things, many believed in him. (31) So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, (32) and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

John 8:24-32 BBE
(24) For this reason I said to you that death will overtake you in your sins: for if you have not faith that I am he, death will come to you while you are in your sins. (25) Then they said to him, Who are you? Jesus said, What I said to you from the first. (26) I have much to say about you and against you: but he who sent me is true and what he has said to me I say to the world. (27) They did not see that his words were about the Father. (28) So Jesus said, When the Son of man has been lifted up by you, then it will be clear to you who I am, and that I do nothing of myself, but say as the Father gave me teaching. (29) He who sent me is with me; he has not gone from me, because at all times I do the things which are pleasing to him. (30) When he said this a number came to have faith in him. (31) Then Jesus said to the Jews who had faith in him, If you keep my word, then you are truly my disciples; (32) And you will have knowledge of what is true, and that will make you free.

John 8:24-32 NWT
24 Therefore I said to YOU, YOU will die in YOUR sins. For if YOU do not believe that I am [he], YOU will die in YOUR sins." 25 Therefore they began to say to him: "Who are you?" Jesus said to them: "Why am I even speaking to YOU at all? 26 I have many things to speak concerning YOU and to pass judgment upon. As a matter of fact, he that sent me is true, and the very things I heard from him I am speaking in the world." 27 They did not grasp that he was talking to them about the Father. 28 Therefore Jesus said: "When once YOU have lifted up the Son of man, then YOU will know that I am [he], and that I do nothing of my own initiative; but just as the Father taught me I speak these things. 29 And he that sent me is with me; he did not abandon me to myself, because I always do the things pleasing to him." 30 As he was speaking these things, many put faith in him. 31 And so Jesus went on to say to the Jews that had believed him: "If YOU remain in my word, YOU are really my disciples, 32 and YOU will know the truth, and the truth will set YOU free."
