John 15


The True Grapevine

1I am the [2grapevine 1true], and my father [2the 3grower 1is]. 2Every vine branch in me not bearing fruit, he takes it; and every one [2fruit 1bearing], he cleanses it, that [2more 3fruit 1it should bear]. 3Already you are clean through the word which I have spoken to you. 4Abide in me, and I in you! As the vine branch is not able [2fruit 1to bear] of itself, unless it should abide in the grapevine, so not even you, unless [2in 3me 1you should abide]. 5I am the grapevine, you are the vine branches. The one abiding in me, and I in him, this one bears [2fruit 1much]; for apart from me you are not able to do anything. 6Unless one should abide in me, he is thrown outside as the vine branch, and withers; and they gather them, and [2them into 3the fire 1cast], and they are burned. 7If you abide in me, and my words [2in 3you 1abide], whatever you should want, ask! and it shall be to you. 8In this [2is glorified 1my father], that [3fruit 2much 1you should bear], and should become [2to me 1disciples]. 9As [3loved 4me 1the 2father], I also loved you; abide in the love, in the one mine! 10If [2my commandments 1you should keep], you shall abide in my love; as I [2the 3commandments 4of my father 1have kept], and I abide [4of his 1in 2the 3love]. 11These things I have spoken to you, that [2joy 1my 4in 5you 3should abide], and your joy should be full.

Love One Another

12This is [2commandment 1my], That you love one another! as I loved you. 13Greater love than this no one has, that one [2his life 1should place] for his friends. 14You [2my friends 1are], if you should do as much as I give charge to you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant knows not what [3does 1his 2master]. [3you 1But 2I have called] friends, for all things which I heard from my father I made known to you. 16[3not 1You 2chose me], but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and [2fruit 1bear], and your fruit should abide; that whatever you should ask the father in my name, he should give to you. 17These things I give charge to you, that you should love one another.

Enmity of the World

18If the world detests you, know that [2me 3first 4before you 1it detested]! 19If [2of 3the 4world 1you were], the world would [2its own 1be fond of]; but because [2of 3the 4world 1you are not], but I chose you from out of the world, on account of this [3detests 4you 1the 2world]. 20Remember the word which I said to you! [3not 2is 1A servant] greater than his master. If me they persecuted, also you they shall persecute. If [2my word 1they give heed to], then [2yours 1they will give heed to]. 21But all these things they shall do to you because of my name, for they know not the one having sent me. 22Unless I came and spoke to them, [2sin 1they had not had]; but now [2an excuse 1they have not] concerning their sin. 23The one detesting me, even [2my father 1detests]. 24If [2the 3works 1I did not] among them which no other has done, [2sin 1they had not had]; but now even they have seen and have detested even me and my father. 25But that [3should be fulfilled 1the 2word] having been written in their law that, They detested me without a charge. 26But whenever [3should come 1the 2comforter], whom I send to you from the father, the spirit of the truth, who from the father goes forth, that one will witness concerning me; 27[2also 1and you] witness, for [4from 5the beginning 2with 3me 1you were].
