John 8:42 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I proceeded forth - from God (ἐκ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐξῆλθον)

Rev., came forth. The phrase occurs only here and in John 16:28. Ἑξελθεῖν is found in John 13:3; John 16:30, and emphasizes the idea of separation; a going from God to whom He was to return (and goeth unto God). Ἑξελθεῖν παρά (John 16:27; John 17:8), is going from beside, implying personal fellowship with God. Ἑξελθεῖν ἐκ, here, emphasizes the idea of essential, community of being: "I came forth out of."

And am come (ἥκω)

As much as to say, and here Iam.

Of myself (ἀπ' ἐμαυτοῦ)

Of my own self-determination, independently, but my being is divinely derived. See on John 7:17.
