1: I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2: [As to] every branch in me not bearing fruit, he takes it away; and [as to] every one bearing fruit, he purges it that it may bring forth more fruit. 3: Ye are already clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. 4: Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abide in the vine, thus neither [can] ye unless ye abide in me. 5: I am the vine, ye [are] the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing. 6: Unless any one abide in me he is cast out as the branch, and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall come to pass to you. 8: In this is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and ye shall become disciples of mine. 9: As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love. 10: If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11: I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and your joy be full. 12: This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13: No one has greater love than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends. 14: Ye are my friends if ye practise whatever I command you. 15: I call you no longer bondmen, for the bondman does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things which I have heard of my Father I have made known to you. 16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and have set you that ye should go and [that] ye should bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide, that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name he may give you. 17: These things I command you, that ye love one another. 18: If the world hate you, know that it has hated me before you. 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, on account of this the world hates you. 20: Remember the word which I said unto you, The bondman is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my word, they will keep also yours. 21: But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they have not known him that sent me. 22: If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23: He that hates me hates also my Father. 24: If I had not done among them the works which no other one has done, they had not had sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25: But that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, They hated me without a cause. 26: But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes forth from with the Father, he shall bear witness concerning me; 27: and ye too bear witness, because ye are with me from [the] beginning.
