And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,
King James Bible
And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
American Standard Version
And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
Young's Literal Translation
'And the Father who sent me Himself hath testified concerning me; ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor His appearance have ye seen;
John 5:37 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Father himself - hath borne witness - That is, by his prophets.
Ye have neither heard his voice - I make these words, with Bp. Pearce, a parenthesis: the sense is - "Not that my Father ever appeared visibly or spake audibly to any of you; but he did it by the mouths of his prophets." Lately, however, he had added to their testimony his own voice from heaven, on the day of Christ's baptism. See Matthew 3:17.
