1: 'Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is not entering through the door to the fold of the sheep, but is going up from another side, that one is a thief and a robber; 2: and he who is entering through the door is shepherd of the sheep; 3: to this one the doorkeeper doth open, and the sheep hear his voice, and his own sheep he doth call by name, and doth lead them forth; 4: and when his own sheep he may put forth, before them he goeth on, and the sheep follow him, because they have known his voice; 5: and a stranger they will not follow, but will flee from him, because they have not known the voice of strangers.' 6: This similitude spake Jesus to them, and they knew not what the things were that he was speaking to them; 7: Jesus said therefore again to them, 'Verily, verily, I say to you -- I am the door of the sheep; 8: all, as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them; 9: I am the door, through me if any one may come in, he shall be saved, and he shall come in, and go out, and find pasture. 10: 'The thief doth not come, except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly. 11: 'I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd his life layeth down for the sheep; 12: and the hireling, and not being a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, doth behold the wolf coming, and doth leave the sheep, and doth flee; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep; 13: and the hireling doth flee because he is an hireling, and is not caring for the sheep. 14: 'I am the good shepherd, and I know my [sheep], and am known by mine, 15: according as the Father doth know me, and I know the Father, and my life I lay down for the sheep, 16: and other sheep I have that are not of this fold, these also it behoveth me to bring, and my voice they will hear, and there shall become one flock -- one shepherd. 17: 'Because of this doth the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that again I may take it; 18: no one doth take it from me, but I lay it down of myself; authority I have to lay it down, and authority I have again to take it; this command I received from my Father.' 19: Therefore, again, there came a division among the Jews, because of these words, 20: and many of them said, 'He hath a demon, and is mad, why do ye hear him?' 21: others said, 'These sayings are not those of a demoniac; is a demon able blind men's eyes to open?' 22: And the dedication in Jerusalem came, and it was winter, 23: and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the porch of Solomon, 24: the Jews, therefore, came round about him, and said to him, 'Till when our soul dost thou hold in suspense? if thou art the Christ, tell us freely.' 25: Jesus answered them, 'I told you, and ye do not believe; the works that I do in the name of my Father, these testify concerning me; 26: but ye do not believe, for ye are not of my sheep, 27: according as I said to you: My sheep my voice do hear, and I know them, and they follow me, 28: and life age-during I give to them, and they shall not perish -- to the age, and no one shall pluck them out of my hand; 29: my Father, who hath given to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to pluck out of the hand of my Father; 30: I and the Father are one.' 31: Therefore, again, did the Jews take up stones that they may stone him; 32: Jesus answered them, 'Many good works did I shew you from my Father; because of which work of them do ye stone me?' 33: The Jews answered him, saying, 'For a good work we do not stone thee, but for evil speaking, and because thou, being a man, dost make thyself God.' 34: Jesus answered them, 'Is it not having been written in your law: I said, ye are gods? 35: if them he did call gods unto whom the word of God came, (and the Writing is not able to be broken,) 36: of him whom the Father did sanctify, and send to the world, do ye say -- Thou speakest evil, because I said, Son of God I am? 37: if I do not the works of my Father, do not believe me; 38: and if I do, even if me ye may not believe, the works believe, that ye may know and may believe that in me [is] the Father, and I in Him.' 39: Therefore were they seeking again to seize him, and he went forth out of their hand, 40: and went away again to the other side of the Jordan, to the place where John was at first baptizing, and remained there, 41: and many came unto him, and said -- 'John, indeed, did no sign, and all things, as many as John said about this one were true;' 42: and many did believe in him there.
