New International Version
But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
King James Bible
But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
Darby Bible Translation
but if I do, even if ye believe not me, believe the works, that ye may know [and believe] that the Father is in me and I in him.
World English Bible
But if I do them, though you don't believe me, believe the works; that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
Young's Literal Translation
and if I do, even if me ye may not believe, the works believe, that ye may know and may believe that in me is the Father, and I in Him.'

There was no possibility of weakening the force of this reasoning but by asserting that these miracles were not wrought by the power of God; and then they must have proved that not only a man, but a bad man, such as they said Jesus was, could work these miracles. As this was impossible, then the argument of Christ had a complete triumph.

He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him."
"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish--the very works that I am doing--testify that the Father has sent me.
Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name testify about me,
When he heard this, Jesus said, "This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God's glory so that God's Son may be glorified through it."
Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
