John 15

15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh away;
 and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he cleaneth it, that it
 may bring forth more fruit.
15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken to
15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
 of itself, except it abide in the vine: no more can ye, except
 ye abide in me.
15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in
 me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for
 without me ye can do nothing.
15:6 If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,
 and is withered: and men gather them, and cast [them] into the
 fire, and they are burned.
15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye may ask
 what ye will, and it shall be done to you.
15:8 In this is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so
 shall ye be my disciples.
15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue
 ye in my love.
15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love;
 even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his
15:11 These things have I spoken to you, that my joy may remain
 in you, and [that] your joy may be full.
15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I
 have loved you.
15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down
 his life for his friends.
15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatever I command you.
15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant
 knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends;
 for all things that I have heard from my Father, I have made
 known to you.
15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained
 you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your
 fruit should remain: that whatever ye shall ask of the Father
 in my name, he may give it you.
15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
15:18 If the world hateth you, ye know that it hated me before
 [it hated] you.
15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but
 because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of
 the world, therefore the world hateth you.
15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not
 greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will
 also persecute you: if they have kept my saying, they will keep
 yours also.
15:21 But all these things will they do to you for my name's
 sake, because they know not him that sent me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had
 sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
15:23 He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
15:24 If I had not done among them the works which no other man
 hath done, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen,
 and hated both me and my Father.
15:25 But [this cometh to pass], that the word might be
 fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a
15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you
 from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth
 from the Father, he will testify concerning me.
15:27 And ye also shall bear testimony, because ye have been
 with me from the beginning.
