John 8:43-45 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
43 Why do you not understand what I say? I will tell you why. It is because you do not want to understand it.
44 `The bad spirit, the devil, is your real father. You gladly do the wrong things he wants you to do. From the beginning he killed people. He has nothing to do with what is true. His way is to tell lies. He himself is a liar and all lying comes from him.
45 You do not believe me because I tell you what is true.
