Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a arobber. 2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him bthe porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4 And when he cputteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And da stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This eparable spake Jesus unto them: fbut they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and arobbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am gthe door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and hshall go in and out, and ifind pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
