My Comments are in Green

33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?   (KJV)            

33)   They judgingly answered Him,
             'We are the sperm - We are the seed 
              of Abraham;
              and certainly not to anyone have we been 
              servants subjugated in bondage or voluntarily obedient
              [as if slaves],
              as yet never ever!

              How - In what manner or way 
              do you lay down definite words and say that
              "Free - Unconstrained - Unshackled and independent
               you will become?" '

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.   (KJV)   

34)   Jesus  - Yeshua      judgingly answered,
             'Amen.  Amen.  I lay down definite words and say
              unto you, that all - everyone  
              doing - making - performing - causing - bringing about
              the sin - the guilty offense
              is a slave of sin.

35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.   (KJV) 

35)    Then the slave certainly not  remains - abides - dwells 
          in the House  into the Age - into Forever.

          The Son remains - abides - dwells  into the Age - into Forever.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.   (KJV)

36)   If perhaps    therefore - accordingly    the Son
         sets you free - liberates you into freedom and independence,
         you are in the chronic and continous state of being free
         and independent (indeed).

37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.   (KJV)   

37)    I know and awaringly understand that you are 
          the sperm - the seed 
          [the natural born paternal descendents]
          of Abraham;
          but you seek and strive to find Me 
          to destroyingly kill,  because My intelligent word 
          certainly not has a place - certainly not has a (roomy) space
          in you.

38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.   (KJV)   

38)    I speak randomly (of) what I have seen 
          (face to face - with My own eyes)
          in the presence of - near - with   the Father of Me.

          And - Also  you (yourselves likewise), 
          therefore - accordingly,      what you have seen 
          (face to face - with My own eyes)
          in the presence of - near - with   the father of you.'

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.    (KJV)          

39)    They judgingly answered and said to Him,
              'The Father of us is Abraham!'
          Jesus - Yeshua   lays down definite words and says to them,
              'If  (hypothetically)  you were the children 
               brought forth of Abraham, 
               the work performances - the deeds and acts
               of Abraham you would
               do - make - perform - cause - bring about,  perhaps.

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.   (KJV)        

40)    Now - At this time    then, 
          you seek and strive to find Me 
          to destroyingly kill a man who has spoken 
          the Truth - the True Reality (as it really is)    to you,
          which I attentively heard in the presence of GOD.

          This Abraham certainly did not do.

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.   (KJV)        

41)    You  do - make - perform - cause - bring about 
          the work performances of the father of you.'

          Accordingly - Therefore,  they said to Him,
               'We certainly  were not  born - begotten
                out of fornication - out of sexual sin
                [out of having sex outside the husband and wife
                  marraige relationship].
                 One father we have - hold - possess and continue 
                 to have - hold - possess:  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.     (KJV)          

42)    Jesus - Yeshua  said to them,
              'If (hypothetically)  GOD was your Father,
               you would unquestioningly and without precondition,
               with compassion and duty,  
               love Me  now - at this (present) time;
               for I, out of GOD,  proceeded from and went forth,
               and have come to be here.

               Because certainly not from Myself 
               I have come forth (so as to make a public appearance),
               but that one there sent Me forth out.

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

43)    Through which or what (part of)   the speech of Mine
          do you certainly not know and perceivingly understand
          because you are not able, nor capable, nor empowered 
          to listen intently and hear the intelligent word (of) Mine 
          (that which belongs to and proceeds from Me)?

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.    (KJV)   

44)    You are   out of / from   (your) father, 
          the Devil  / he casting or throwing (false accusations) through;
          and the longings and strong desires of the mind 
          of the father of you 
           you willingly wish - desire - intend - are pleased
           to  do - make - perform - cause - bring about.

           That one there was homicidal - was a murderer

            from (the) Beginning - from (the) First Cause;

            [Note: in regard to events at "The Beginning", this verse appears to refer to events in Genesis Chapter 3.   -- Brianroy]

            and in the Truth - and in the True Reality (as it really is)
            has certainly not stood - has certainly not established nor
            because the Truth is certainly not in him.

             Whensoever he randomly speaks the falsehood - the lie,

             out of his own (privately and apart from others) 
             he speaks,
             because he is a liar, and the father of it.

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

45)    Then, because I lay down definite words and speak
          the Truth - the True Reality (as it really is),
          you certainly do not believe - you certainly do not trust 

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

46)    Who out of you shames - disgraces - provingly convicts
          Me (as in the wrong)  round about - concerning 
          sin - a guilty offense?

          Then, perhaps if  I lay down definite words and speak
          the Truth - the True Reality (as it really is),
          through which or what (part)
          do you certainly not believe - trust  Me?

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

47)    He being out of GOD hears and listens intently to
          the speech - statements - discourse   of GOD 
          [as uttered and taught by a living voice].

          Through this,  you certainly do not listen intently nor hear,
           because you are certainly not  out of - out from  GOD.'

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

48)    Accordingly - Therefore the Judeans judgingly answered
          and said to Him,
              '(Is it) Certainly not well and good  we 
                lay down definite words and say that you are 
                a Samaritan, and (that) you have -hold - possess and 
                continue to have - hold - possess a demon?'

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

49)    Jesus judgingly answered,
                'I certainly do not  have - hold - possess  a demon,
                 but I  esteem - honor - reverence - prize - show respect for  
                 the Father of Me,
                 and you   do not esteem - do not honor - do not reverence - 
                 do not prize - do not show respect for    Me.  

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

50)    Then, I certainly do not seek and strive to find 
          [to do the same with you].  

          The thoughtful recognition and glory of Me 

          is he seeking and striving to find,
          and (rightly) discerning - (rightly) judging and 
          discriminating (good over evil).

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

51)    Amen.  Amen.  I lay down definite words and say to you, 
         if perhaps someone
         keeps watch - guards vigilantly - obeys and preserves 
         My own intelligent word, 
         certainly not  may not  / in no way
         will he gaze at and carefully observe - will he behold with 
         the eyes           death        into the Age - - into Forever.'

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.    (KJV)             

52)    Therefore - Accordingly,   the Judeans said to Him,
               'Now - At this present time     we have perceived
                that you have - hold - possess and continue to possess
                a demon.

                Abraham and the prophets died off.
                And You lay down definite words and say,
                   'If (perhaps) someone
                   keeps watch - guards vigilantly - obeys and preserves                                    
                   the intelligent word of Me, 
                    certainly not  may not  / in no way
                    will he taste  [will he even temporarily experience]
                    of   death        into the Age - - into Forever.

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

53)    Perhaps not You, You are greater and older than Abraham,
          the father of us, someone who died off?

          And [greater and older than]  the Prophets (who) died off?

          Whom do you make - bring about - cause Yourself (to be)?'

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:    (KJV) 

54)   Jesus judgingly answered,
              'If (perhaps or hypothetically)  I glorify - honor and exalt  
               Myself,  the thoughtful recognition and glory of Me 
               is not even one (thing)  -  is nothing.

               It is the Father of Me glorifying - honoring and exalting Me, 
               whom you lay down definite words and say that 
               is GOD of you.

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.  (KJV)          

55)     And you have certainly not known and perceived Him.

           I then, know - experience and understand Him,
           and if (possibly or hypothetically) I say that 
           I certainly do not know - experience and understand Him,
           I shall be wholly - in every sense   like you, a liar.

           But I know - experience and understand Him,
           and the intelligent word of Him  
           I  keep watch over - vigilantly guard - obey and preserve. 

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

56)   Abraham, the father of you, leaped and skipped in ecstatic joy
         in order that he might - in order that he should
         know - experience and understand the Day of Mine.

         [Note: Here, Jesus references the Cross and His Day in which
                     He atones for the sins of all mankind as His Day, or 
                     in His words, "the Day of Mine."]
         And he knew - experienced and understood,
         and rejoiced with gladness.

               [Note: In regard to Abraham, this verse appears to me to be referring to events in Genesis 22:1-18.  -- Brianroy]

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

57)   Accordingly - Therefore, the Judeans said up alongside with

          [as if now the Gospel of John is telling us that the Judeans who were    
          previously debating Jesus - Yeshua from perhaps a short distance, 
          such as 30 feet away, now with hostility are approaching and 
          pressing through the crowd surrounding Jesus - Yeshua
          to be nearer to Him, and say at almost arm's reach to]  

               '50 years certainly not yet
                you have - hold - possess and continue to have - hold -possess,
                and Abraham you have seen with your own eyes?'

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

58)  Jesus said to them, 
             'Amen.  Amen.  I lay down definite words and say to you,
              Before Abraham came into being,  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.   (KJV) 

59)     Accordingly - Therefore, they took and raised up 
           [of the numerous Temple construction debris]
           in order that they might throw and cast off
           upon - onto  Him.  

           Then Jesus - Yeshua  was hidden - concealed 
            [Jesus was hidden and concealed 
             as a result of the Judeans  (who lifted up stones) 
             being smitten with the same blindness as the 
             Sodomites were smitten with by Heaven's Messengers
             in Genesis 19:9-11,  as they were saving Lot.  Cf. 
http://brianroysinput.blogspot.com/2012/07/sodom-texts-of-genesis-191-30a-in-king.html   ]

            and went and proceeded forth out of the Temple, 
            going through (the) middle of them,
            and in this manner - thus
            in close proximity and very near (to them),
            so passed by.
