Bible Verses About Satan Or What Many Call The Devil

There are many verses in the Bible about Satan. I can say that I have encountered this dark demon, fallen angel, angel of darkness among the masses and it certainly knows how to rear its ugly head , however the Grace of God has protected me and even Satan knows the Bible. Many of us who are Christian often put our armor down believing that something that we hear is truth but when we truly listen to God, we find that we were led astray by what we believed to be angel and it truly wasn't an angel at all. 2 Cor. 11:14 says, " No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. " He certainly does disguise himself but in Ephesians 6: 11-13 it says, " Put on the whole armour of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done, all to stand.

In the book of Job 1:7 " The Lord said to Satan, "From where do you come?" Then Satan answered the Lord and said, " From roaming about the earth and walking around in it." Everyday our faith is tested as Satan works to sway our beliefs, truths and ways.but God does say in, Psalms 37:1-9 Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carryout their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret- it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

The Bible has many passages about Satan Act 26:18, 1 John 4:4 , Rev 20:10, Mat 4:1 and the list goes on, but for every passage about Satan it also gives you guidance and how to protect yourself from his fury. Philippians 4:13 is one of my favorite passages it simply reads, " I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Every time we go to battle we need to just step back and breathe, God wants only great things for us if we only listen. Instead of dancing with the Devil we need to Waltz with the Lord.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. AMEN! Makes so much sense!

Thanks for this tonight! It is so good for people to expose the darkness that exists--because it DOES--the biggest lie of the darkness is to whisper to people that there is no sin-no devil-no evil--so they go on there happy merry way--sinning and not realizing what is happening!

YOU ROCK!!!

Ghost Whisperer: As you know we have to expose that he roams because he does run around in sheep's clothing and hides behind the cloth of God. He certainly does need to be slapped and now he has a double whammy! lolo :)

Hello, hello: You are welcome. :)

AEvans, thank you for sharing the armor with us with the information of how Satan does exist in the Bible. Yes, my friend the Scriptures are filled with Satan; yet we need to know as you point out there are means to protect ourselves. I have written a hub on a similar outlook called The Rest of My Clothing For the Day. I would like your take on it as well as others.

I have definitely been harassed by Satan. When I was but a child he called out my name and I knew it was him. I knew also that because of this I would be a target all my life because of the works I do in the Lord. Recently the Lord revealed to me that Satan wanted my ministry stopped in its tracks but I want you to know that Satan did not prevail in this. I am back at hubpages to stay. I saw this evil conquered, as the Lord showed me further in another vision. My family has been attacked by Satan himself these past couple of years but when a family stands in the Lord they will not fall.


AEvans profile image

AEvans 6 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

Sciantel: He certainly does attack, decieve, bare false witness, proclaim the Lord in his name he is pure evil. All of us are being attacked and we have to get back to our true beliefs , put on the coat of armor and stand our ground. The Lord will not fail we have to put all of our trust in him. When all of us truly listen God will tell us so many things. " Remember God whispers, and the World is loud." :)

Interesting Hub - He isn't good. "He goes about like a roaring Lion seeking whom to Devour", "who to destroy" but thank God there are other verses that are encouraging. "God will arise and His enemies be scattered".... so many more.

Enjoyed reading it.

Why do all you people continue to perpetuate the mythical personification of Satan, Christ and God?

Will you ever accept the fact that Satan, Christ and God exist only within us?

Ok. Can anyone argue against the premise that religion can be used by a "learned man" as a way of controlling the thoughts and actions of other men? No. It isn't always...but the potential is always there. So when "the bible" is translated and re-written is it done "by the perfect will of God" or "the imperfect will of man"?

What gives us oxygen to breathe? What allows us to go to sleep at night without dying? Well tells our minds to inhale/exhale when we are resting? Yes there are many Christians who call themselves followers of Christ, believers etc. that distort the word of God, I have had my share of them , they are judgemental and do have prejudices but there are the few who truly try to walk with God and do not pass judgement upon anyone, there are those who have been hurt by lying Christians who turn the other cheek and look away. We are a small percent but we are certainly here and unfortunately the ones who do create there own false principals , beliefs and distort the word of God are the ones that make it complicated for those of us who hold onto his unchanging hand. Who is to say those people in the Bible did not exist? :)

pjk_artist--dude--I got to tell you something--I don't spout scripture-I don't go to any church-I don't belong to any religion--God exists and so does the devil--it is not a myth nor a joke. How do I know this?

I have had things happen to me to tell me that it aint no myth! What I and a friend have experienced over and over--awake-no drugs-no drinking-no psyhosis-REALITY. It has brought me to God--in the best way. No lie--GOD EXISTS and so does the devil--in ways you could not imagine and they aint pretty! I have met GOD..and I can tell you it is most beautiful...you want to discredit-disprove-about the writings of the Holy Bible do you?

DO me this favor will you--instead of trying to disprove it to others that God and the devil don't exist--invite the devil into your life-say it outload and laugh about him--and see what happens....but remember when you see it--when you feel it--GO--run! run! TO GOD. I would prefer you run to God first--but many like you will never do that--but I can gurantee you if you invite the devil into your life..you will run like your pants are on fire to God!!!!!

I bet you will stop leaving these lies on other peoples hubs once you experience these things--don't forget run to God and ask forgiveness!

PJK - Its all a matrix-like dream God experiences as he sleeps in you...in me...in all. Do you breathe in your dreams?

Yes there are many Christians who call themselves followers of Christ, believers etc. that distort the word of God, I have had my share of them , they are judgemental and do have prejudices but there are the few who truly try to walk with God and do not pass judgement upon anyone, there are those who have been hurt by lying Christians who turn the other cheek and look away.

PJK - People practicing true "christian" values and beliefs make society a wonderful place to live.

We are a small percent but we are certainly here and unfortunately the ones who do create there own false principals , beliefs and distort the word of God are the ones that make it complicated for those of us who hold onto his unchanging hand. Who is to say those people in the Bible did not exist? :)

PJK - Neville Goddard. I never heard of him and these "new" ideas about scripture until a few years ago. Now he's renewed my faith in God and helped explain all the tricky conflictions and discrepancies in the bible. When you realize its all parabolic... it makes sense.

Pjk--Firstly, I am a girl. ;)

Secondly, you didn't push any of my buttons--you are so very misguided--I am telling you because I care about you-you are being deceived and you just don't realize it-and I want you to know the truth--what you spew out is because you don't understand. I say these things because you are going to see somethings down the road--and I want you to remember my words..You will need them. Just by me saying this--you will remember..it is all about God-vs Satan. Simple as that.

You want a true story--the reason why I have come to God-belonging to no religion even now--I am spiritual--NO RELIGION--no Bible thumping dude--go to my hub and read my TRUE story--from chapter 1 through Chapter 16--the last chapter will be done when God reveals this outwardly.

Every word in this story is TRUE-and my room mate Twisty is on my profile front page-though he still lives in Montana and I am in NY...he will be writing his perspective of these happenings.

I am not on any agenda--I know God exists-and I also know the devil is very, very real--I would never believe in my wildest dreams that I would be speaking about God and the devil with such fervor--but do to what has happened to me--I have to--I have to tell people--people like you who are so convinced of these things not existing.

Feel free to befriend-both Twisty and myself and read for yourself--I pray one day that you do come to God--you may...you may not....that is up to you. I am only hear to spread the word about God.

Oh, and I must add this-you are not dark--but dim--dim isn't what you want.;)

Ghost Whisper 77 6 years ago from The U.S. Government protects Nazi War Criminals

pjk_artist..whatever book you are reading--it is a lie--I don't have to go look at anything you want to show to disprove God and Satan-Why? Not out of disrespect but because I have 'eyes' that see different than you--big time--and I am just saying--you are being deceived--so sad really. The devil is such a liar!

Oh, and what I have seen-is COMPLETELY different than what I was told growing up. COMPLETELY! FYI: I know you keep saying that the devil is inside all of us--it is a lie--I don't go hitting my head-making myself bleed-nor do I throw hammers at my head-candlesticks-I certainly don't choke myself while I am trying to sleep-Nor can I will my cross to bounce around my neck-or knock down my six foot room mate! I am telling you--the devil exists! No lie-no religion here-nothing but straight up talk--you got it so wrong and for some reason I feel compelled to tell you this! Not to embarrass you or fight with you--to help you--God exists doll and so does the devil/demons/supernatural of evil--in a way--you could never understand.

So--call upon the devil--invite him in--and see what happens! I think that would bring you to where I have been...but I did not invite him in...God allowed me to experience him in for a reason! A big one!

To the Ghost Whisper:

When you die and go to heaven and stand before an entity we call God, I will admit I'm wrong.

When you die only to awaken and realize you are God and you have been dreaming, you'll realize I was right.

Ghost Whisper 77 6 years ago from The U.S. Government protects Nazi War Criminals

PJK-I see what and where you are-not only by you telling lies to the people about God and the devil not existing--by this statement--"It must be that time of the month again." That tells me much.

I will say no more--it falls on deaf and mocking ears-you have been warned of the truth-nothing more I can do no more to help you 'see' what you do not 'see' at this time. I hope one day you come to God in a beautiful way!:)

What do I mean that things will be seen down the road?

"Down the road"--what is in store for the world-what is being laid down-MUCH DARKNESS-placed-piece by piece and all darkness will come to light,whether we see it or not right now-those who's eyes do not see-they will see then. For those who have God, they will not fear but understand the 'whys' behind this happening. They will stand firm in GOD-their allegiance and never waver--

For those as PJK and many, many others. They will have a chance to see the 'truth' of the devils existence. Will they go to God? Will they go to the darkness that is going to cover the earth? Only God knows. I pray that they go to God.

As I have said, there are many people here in the world that 'see' with different eyes-as you do AEevans-some more-some lesser-and some not at all. It is our job to plant seeds--your hub is here and is planting seeds-so all of God's children see these words..one day down the road...they will need them!

So was I brother--(Bohemian Owl of Evil Hub-You say that I did this to myself?

God works through others-yes-because God is also inside us as well as everywhere- God is doing with me--and AEevans--and many..

God, the universally diffused individuality, is asleep in everyone. His transcendent revelation is personified as one called Jesus Christ. Thus personification awakens the memory in you as to who God the Father really is. God did not break up the I am and give each one of us a portion of himself. He gave each one, individually, his whole being. I am cannot be divided, and I am God the Father. If you haven't yet discovered this, I am still asleep. In order to discover your fatherhood, you must find God's son, foretold to be yours. While asleep in the state of Saul, you do not recognize him; and when you ask: "Whose son are you, young man?" he answers: "I am the son of Jesse, the I am." When you awake and recognize God's son, David, are you not Jesse? Are you not God, whose name forever and ever is I am?

It takes David to reveal you to yourself; yet you were his father before you fell asleep. Now dreaming your life into being, you fight against seeming others, calling them devils and Satan. You endow your shadow world with causation, thereby becoming a divided being, when God is not divided. There is no devil. There is no Satan. There is no being outside of your own wonderful human imagination.

"I, even I am he. I kill and I make alive. I wound and I heal and none can deliver out of my hand." (Deut. 52) "I am the Lord and there is no other God. I form the light and I create darkness. I make the weal and I create woe. I am the Lord and there is no other; besides me there is no God." (Isaiah 45) He who creates the evil, creates the good, the weal and the woe, the light and the darkness. He who kills is he who makes alive, and he who wounds is he who heals and there is no other God. If you really believe you are the one spoken of here - that it is you who create the evil, the good, the weal and the woe; that none can deliver out of your hand - then you are set free. You will never again believe in another, but know that your life is self-created. That you create the storms, as well as the peace and the calm. No longer will you believe he, she, or they, did it, for you will recognize them as reflections mirroring either the storm or the peace and calm within you.

Godard is whispering the biggest lie of all! I KNOW Goddard is darkness and Goddard will get slapped down-way down one day! I take comfort in knowing this. I don't see you as darkness-I see you as dim--and this is why--but your heart is trying to be in the right place-the devil has tricked you but has NOT tricked me! Gosh I wish you could see through my eyes just for a second. :*(

ALL darkness will be brought to light for you one day sweety,I see it already-LOUD AND CLEAR! You can never sell me satan wrapped up in shiny(pretending to be light)beautiful paper and bow--This is the devil pretending to be LIGHT FYI!

Hey GW77.... Frank Lloyd Wright once said, ‘We are both doing God’s work, you in your way and I in his.’”

-Peter

Goddard:

Yesterday, about 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon, as is my custom, I was reading the Bible. My wife was resting in preparation for our dinner engagement, when I heard footsteps coming up the stairs. Wearing only my shorts and, thinking it may be a delivery boy, I went to the door and here was a nun who said she had a message for me from God. Then, she began to tell me all about the many devils and terrible things that were going to happen to me if I didn’t get on his side. Finally I stopped her and said, “I am reminded of what Frank Lloyd Wright once said, ‘We are both doing God’s work, you in your way and I in his.’” Then I excused myself and as I closed the door a thought came to me. “He has awakened from the dream of life. Tis we who, lost in stormy vision, keep with fancy an unprofitable strife.” You find a devil and you make more devils because you recognize them and what you recognize you project and make real in your world.

All I can tell you is what I have experienced concerning Scripture. This miraculous child is a fact. The day will come when you will experience everything said of this child. There will be those who will make a hasty journey to see that which has happened in Bethlehem. They will find the child and, knowing whose child it is, they will call you by name. If your name is John they will declare it is John’s baby. Then you will pick up the child, look into its heavenly face and as he laughs the vision comes to its end. And then you will know the reality of the child that was given to you as a sign that the savior was born. There is only one savior who is God. So if the savior is born, God is born. He came down into man and raises man by being reborn, from man, for I am the root and the offspring of David.

All I can tell you is what I have experienced concerning Satan and it aint pretty--aint in my head-aint in my imagination-aint nothing some goober goddard is saying...lol...Do you know what the biggest lie of satan and his minions is????

That the devil doesn't exist. Remember that sweet friend.

You aint doing 'Gods' work if you are passing around the biggest lie--and promoting the liar of this world-even if you think it is 'light' it is not. Amen! You will understand one day...so we let it lay--I raise God up--you raise goddard--but goddard will get his slapping down one day--so no sweating it--only sweating it for you my friend. :*(

Oh, and I don't view this as an argument--I feel sad for Pjk-it is a yearning to plant seeds not to tear down...the devil is such a liar--that often it doesn't ring true because often people will be fooled by darkness surrounded by light--I pray that he see's the truth one day! I do! I really really do!

Yes, Satan is one bad dude and he knows our weaknesses and how to exploit our fears. But turn to the end of the bible and we find that Jesus wins, so there's no fearing Satan!

I am glad I open my mail today to catch up. I am so glad that are using your ability to write, and use that talent to honor God. I woke up this morning with God on My Mind a spiritual that I was singing, with joy and Gladness.

When does Satan attack, when we are in fellowship with the creator of all things.

In Psalm 37, as you mention. The key words are don't fret, don't get anxious...

You know that you are being attacked when you are worrying about stuff.

This was a great article, You've inspired and reminded me of what I love most talking about The Father, the most high, the creator of all things, and Christ, who made it possible for our sins to be forgiven. We can go to the father and ask for help in confidence that there is nothing that you have done can be forgiven, the blood has already been given in your behalf. You ask and it shall be given and you will see the wonders, the favor and God will show himself to you and confirm that he really is.

Thanks AEvans

It's a long trip down here toward the end of endless comments. I don't have much to say really. If I wanted to argue I'd get married again. I've wanted to believe in Gnosticism and I don't see much to dislike. I like all believers of the Golden Rule as I've harped. Pjk_artist says though, "Will you ever accept the fact that Satan, Christ and God exist only within us?" I'm pretty sure Satan lives "out there". He drops by occasionally but I show Him the way out pretty quickly most times. The fact is- I never put myself in jail under false pretenses. I've never lied about me and lost jobs because I've lied about me. I've never started a war. With all that I've seen including moods change for the worst when I've showed up sometimes tells me that things were jolly and then actions, thoughts, and moods are projected to me. This tells me right or wrong and without any other explanation that Satan will come by people of God and sit right down in their "houses". I think powerful people as they display their apathy and lies about world problems dance with Satan and sleep with Satan. Where Satan comes from doesn't even matter to me but there is a seed that can grow bigger depending on what seed we nurture. I've said a lot to say nothing. Thanks for a great hub.

I think that this hub is VERY blessed and spiritual things have happened here-through the Holy Ghost--and I am not meaning me-ghosty..do you know what it is?

All believers--they have just been shown Satan and how he comes in LIGHT to trick. We read about it but many don't understand what this really means--and this is a great example by what just showed up on this hub for a reason. I do not mean pkj-it is not him that speaks-it is satan and his trickery on him. I love pkj but I despise satan!

Hey Girl- I am so happy you wrote this. I am always telling people that scripture about the "angel of light" because sadly so many sincere people get tricked so easily by him.

Thinking about this for a bit, Julianna, the "Whole Armor of God" passage you mentioned, is based on the Roman Legion model of armor. While we often portray it in our art as a knight's armor and see it as one-on-one conflict, that was not what Paul was writing about. The Roman shield was designed for formation fighting, protecting not only yourself, but the guy fighting next to you. When our own faith falters, how awesome it is to have a brother or sister next to us to protect us with some of theirs. Thanks for standing by my side with your shield!

brotheryochanan profile image

brotheryochanan 6 years ago from BC, canada

people distort the word of god because they are all study, little prayer and mostly ego.

The crux of christianity is having a literal relationship with jesus christ and the father. (the two are one yes i know) Many people like to study the word and crack those tough verses, but few people will spend 5 hrs a day praying or 3 days fasting or 10 minutes 20xs a day seeking the face of god.. in short many people think that writing continuous hubs or books or joining the pta; make up for the time they do not seek god, in the quiet of their closets.

Many people have not come out and are not separate from the world and many do not carry their cross daily. They have all these attachments to the world, hobbies or sports or fetishes of cars, nicknacks, etc... some don't care what actual real day is the true sabbath of god. Some interpret this period of grace as a time to downplay every rule that crucifies their flesh and they take god hog-tied into every ugly sinful situation they want and then chant "oh i love jesus".

If christianity were easy then something would be wrong. Jesus said it will cost us all and that we must be holy. Many people don't know the difference between an nice, acceptable, socially responsible person and a holy person. Many think nice is good enough.

But its not.

Personal relationship with god is tantamount. Not activity time, activityless time and more time with god is necessary. The spirit will guide us into all truth so long as our relationship with jesus is on track.

Maybe your called to be a door usher and not much is required of you but still, will he say, "i know you not"?


AEvans profile image

AEvans 6 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

A personal relationship with God is something that so many of us could and should commit ourselves to. I wake up in the morning , pray and read. I through out the day remember him and thank him for his blessings and I go to sleep at night knowing that no matter what I endure God is listen and I listen to him. Many of us have fallen short of the glory because we are children of Christ but it takes the strong who are turthful, honest believers to lift us and give us the direction again. Your last question is a great one, it is one that I will certainly have to ponder. I thank you so much for your comment and continue to be blessed. :)

Superb hub, on satan...which brings into question of many religions that do not teach about Hell for fear of chasing their flocks away. How can that be biblical. Satan hounds me daily, tempting, always tempting, perhaps he is imbibed in all of us, and our vices make him stronger, and we create our own little hells here on earth. Wherein he dwells, God cannot bring peace, or hope, or salvation till we willingly purge our demons. Thanks for sharing a great reminder of the evil one.~~~MFB III

All this debate would be solved when it pleases the Father to reveal is Son in people, every man in their own order... I sincerely pray for all for the full experiential knowledge of Christ.

Interesting and thought provoking AE. As always I love your work, and I hope you take this comment as it is meant...I think when it comes to your Christian beliefs (as it were) you do better when you are writing about the harder or harsher concepts like this one and you letter to Satan did. I'm not sure why, except that instead of sounding fire and brimstone, you seem to be able to take a darker concept and approach it in basic terms, and with a tone that does not offend. At least me. I find it odd that you seem to evoke such passionately debate oriented responses from other Christians. I would think they would feel the same as I do. But when it comes to the devil, oh Gods children love to hate over evil. I won't explain what I mean by that, but I bet you know exactly what I am saying. This is several of your hubs I have read that have sparked my thoughts, I am putting to keyboard and pen my own hub about evil. I may reference your hub with a link, for I do truly like your perspectives. I hope that would be allright. I think maybe I could shed some light on the subject. Until then, glad you are on the Hubs and in Arizona. Heat sucks here this time of year, huh? Keep on Hubbing milady. Blake4d

blake4d: You are welcome to reference them and I do have a very strong belief in God. When I wake in the morning I thank Jesus. When I look at all around I know its God. I write for the examiner on Christianity and Spirituality. I loved the Lord and I am not afraid to say what I feel and God leads me to be kind and sincere. There will be people who either like me or they don't; but God leads me to be who I am.

We do not hate evil, we dislike evil. Evil invokes darkness, murder, suicides, molestations, rapes and the list goes on and on. We like and love happiness, joy, kindness, compassion and many of us do not venture into idol gossip or negativity. We stand on the word of God and we do not judge others for what they think or their own beliefs. We pray for those who are hurting or lost. Okay enough said sorry for babbling, but God is so good and when people find him they are elated. You will find him one day too. He is all around you, just look. :)

I love your statement AE, " We do not hate evil, we dislike evil".

It looks like you belong to the Children of The Light, whose God is God of love and friendship, and there is no hate in Him. In the past they were called Essenes, from whom the original Christianity sprang. Unfortunately, only few of you have survived in this world of hate and darkness.

BTW AE, interesting, and could be very controversial hub.

Controversial if you read what Jesus said about Satan and his children, the Children of The Darkness.

In John 8, Jesus not only described who is Satan, but also said who are his children. "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."

Hearing the truth they got so upset that they wanted to murder Him, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.

John 8 reads:

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free...

39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

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.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

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.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
