John 7:18

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
New King James Version

He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.

“He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
New International Version

He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.
The Amplified Bible

He who speaks on his own authority seeks to win honor for himself. [He whose teaching originates with himself seeks his own glory.] But He Who seeks the glory and is eager for the honor of Him Who sent Him, He is true; and there is no unrighteousness or falsehood or deception in Him.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

The one who is speaking from himself as a source is seeking his own private glory. But He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, this One is true, and unrighteousness in Him is not.
Phillips’ Modern English

A man who speaks on his own authority has an eye for his own reputation. But the man who is considering the glory of God who sent Him is a true man. There can be no dishonesty about Him.
Williams’ Language of the People

Whoever utters merely his own ideas is seeking his own honor, but whoever seeks the honor of him who sent him is sincere, and there is no dishonest (Greek, no unrighteousness) in him.
