14 “I am the good shepherd;x I know my sheepy and my sheep know me—15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Fatherz—and I lay down my life for the sheep.a 16 I have other sheepb that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flockc and one shepherd.d 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my lifee—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.f I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”g
