John 15:18-21

The Hatred of the World

18 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.
