John 15:18–25

18 If hthe world hate you, ye know that it hated me ibefore it hated you. 19 kIf ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but lbecause ye are not of the world, but bI have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, mThe servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, nthey will also persecute you; oif they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But pall these things will they do unto you qfor my name’s sake, rbecause they know not him that sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, sthey had not had sin: tbut now they have no ||ucloke for their sin. 23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them xthe works which none other man did, sthey had not had sin: but now have they both yseen and zhated both me and my Father. 25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in atheir law, bThey hated me without a cause.
