The Hatred of the World18 a “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 b If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because c you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20Remember the word that I said to you: d ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me e they will also persecute you. f If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21But g all these things they will do to you h on account of my name i because they do not know him who sent me.
