    King James Bible - John 18:37

    Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

    World English Bible

    Pilate therefore said to him, "Are you a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this reason I have been born, and for this reason I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my
    voice."

    Douay-Rheims - John 18:37

    Pilate therefore said to him:
    Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Pilate therefore said to him,
    Art thou a King then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a King. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:37

    Le dijo entonces Pilato: ¿Luego Rey eres t? Respondi Jess: T dices que YO SOY Rey. Yo para esto he nacido, y para esto he venido al mundo, para dar testimonio a la Verdad. Todo aquel que es de la Verdad, oye mi voz.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 18:37

    Verse 37. Thou sayest] A common form of expression for, yes, it is so. I was
    born into the world that I might set up and maintain a spiritual government: but this government is established in and by truth. All that love truth, hear my voice and attend to the spiritual doctrines I preach. It is by truth alone that I influence the minds and govern the manners of my subjects.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 37.
    Pilate therefore said unto him , etc.] Upon this free and full declaration of Christ, concerning his kingly office, and the nature of his kingdom: art thou a king then ? or thou art a king then: for, from his having a kingdom, it might be very justly inferred that he was a king: Jesus answered, thou sayest that I am a king ; and which was very rightly said; and Christ by these words owns and confesses, that he was one: adding, to this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth . The end of Christs being born, which was of a virgin, in a very miraculous manner, and of his coming into the world, which was by the assumption of human nature, among many other things, was to bear testimony to truth in general; to the whole Gospel, the word of truth, and every branch of it, which he brought with him, constantly preached in life, and confirmed by his death; and particularly to this truth, that he was a King, and had a kingdom in a spiritual sense: everyone that is of the truth ; that is of God, belongs to the sheep of Christ, knows the truth as it is in Jesus, and is on the side of truth, and stands by it: heareth my voice ; the voice of his Gospel; and that not only externally, but internally; so as to approve of it, rejoice at it, and distinguish it; and the voice of his commands, so as cheerfully to obey them from a principle of love to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 33-40 -
    Art thou the King of the Jews? that King of the Jews who has been s long expected? Messiah the Prince; art thou he? Dost thou call thysel so, and wouldest thou be thought so? Christ answered this question with another; not for evasion, but that Pilate might consider what he did He never took upon him any earthly power, never were any traitorou principles or practices laid to him. Christ gave an account of the nature of his kingdom. Its nature is not worldly; it is a kingdo within men, set up in their hearts and consciences; its riche spiritual, its power spiritual, and it glory within. Its supports ar not worldly; its weapons are spiritual; it needed not, nor used, forc to maintain and advance it, nor opposed any kingdom but that of sin an Satan. Its object and design are not worldly. When Christ said, In a the Truth, he said, in effect, I am a King. He conquers by the convincing evidence of truth; he rules by the commanding power of truth. The subjects of this kingdom are those that are of the truth Pilate put a good question, he said, What is truth? When we search the Scriptures, and attend the ministry of the word, it must be with thi inquiry, What is truth? and with this prayer, Lead me in thy truth into all truth. But many put this question, who have not patience to preserve in their search after truth; or not humility enough to receiv it. By this solemn declaration of Christ's innocence, it appears, tha though the Lord Jesus was treated as the worst of evil-doers, he neve deserved such treatment. But it unfolds the design of his death; tha he died as a Sacrifice for our sins. Pilate was willing to please all sides; and was governed more by worldly wisdom than by the rules of justice. Sin is a robber, yet is foolishly chosen by many rather tha Christ, who would truly enrich us. Let us endeavour to make ou accusers ashamed as Christ did; and let us beware of crucifying Chris afresh __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    37.
    Art thou then (oukoun ei su). The interrogative particle oujkoun, not therefore, occurs only here in the New Testament. It is ironical. In ver. 33 the emphasis is on thou: here upon king. So then, after all, thou art a king.

    Was I born - came I (gegennhmai - elhluqa). Both perfects. Have I been born-am I come. So Rev. The Greek order is I for this have been born, etc., throwing the emphasis on Christ's person and destiny. The perfect describes His birth and coming not merely as historical facts, but as abiding in their results. Compare this confession before Pilate (1 Timothy vi. 13) with the corresponding confession before the high-priest (Matt. xxvi. 64). "The one, addressed to the Jews, is framed in the language of prophecy; the other, addressed to a Roman, appeals to the universal testimony of conscience. The one speaks of a future manifestation of glory, the other speaking of a present manifestation of truth. The one looks forward to the Return, the other looks backward to the Incarnation" (Westcott).

    Of the truth (ek thv alhqeiav). Literally, out of: sprung from: whose life and words issue from the truth. See on xiv. 6, and compare viii. 47.
