For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
King James Bible
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
American Standard Version
For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
Young's Literal Translation
because I have come down out of the heaven, not that I may do my will, but the will of Him who sent me.
John 6:38 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Not to do mine own will - I am come, not to act according to human motives, passions, or prejudices; but according to infinite wisdom, goodness, and mercy. Jewish passions and prejudices would reject publicans and sinners as those alluded to, and shut the gate of heaven against the Gentiles; but God's mercy receives them, and I am come to manifest that mercy to men.
