I am athe true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 bEvery branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now cye are clean through dthe word which I have spoken unto you. 4 eAbide 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. 5 I am the vine, fye are the branches: eHe that abideth in me, and I in him, the same gbringeth forth much fruit: for ||without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and his withered; and imen gather them, and ijcast them into the fire, and ithey are burned. 7 kIf ye abide in me, and dmy words abide in you, lye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 mHerein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; kso shall ye be my disciples. 9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in nmy love. 10 oIf ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept pmy Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that qmy joy might remain in you, and rthat your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, sThat ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 tGreater love hath no man than this, uthat a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are xmy friends, yif ye do whatsoever I command you. 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 zI have heard of my Father aI have made known unto you. 16 Ye have not chosen me, but bI have chosen you, and cordained you, that ye should go and dbring forth fruit, and that eyour fruit should remain: that fwhatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, gthat ye love one another.
