João 15

1 I am the vine the true, and the Father of me the vine–dresser is.

2 Every branch in me, not bearing fruit, he takes away it; and every one the fruit bearing, he cleanses it, that more fruit it may bear.

3 Already you clean are, through the word, which I have spoken to you.

4 Abide you in me, and I in you. As the branch not is able fruit to bear of itself, if not it may abide in the vine; so neither you, if not in me you abide.

5 I am the vine, you the branches. He abiding in me, and I am in him, this bears fruit much; because apart from me not you are able to do nothing.

6 If not any one may abide in me, he is cast out, like the branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and into a fire they cast, and it is burned.

7 If you abide in me and the words of me in you may abide, whatever you may wish you shall ask, and it shall be for you.

8 In this was glorified the Father of me, that fruit much you might bear, and you shall be to me disciples.

9 As loved me the Father, and I loved you; abide you in the love the mine.

10 If the commandments of me you may keep, you will abide in the love of me; as I the commandments of the Father of me have kept, and abide of him in the love.

11 These things I have spoken to you, that the joy the mine in you may abide, and the joy of you may be fulfilled.

12 This is the commandment the mine, that you love each other, as I loved you.

13 Greater of this love no one has, that any one the life of himself may lay down in behalf of the friends of himself.

14 You friends of me are, if you may do what things I command you.

15 No more you I call slaves; because the slaves not knows what does of him the lord; you but I have called friends, because all things which I heard from the Father of me, I made known to you.

16 Not you me did choose, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you might go and fruit might bear, and the fruit of you might abide; so that whatever you may ask the Father in the name of me, he may give to you.

17 These things I command you, that you may love each other.

18 If the world you hates, you know, that me before you it has hated.

19 If of the world you were, the world would the own kiss, because but of the world not you are, but I chose you out of the world, on account of this hates you the world.

20 Remember you the world, of which I said to you. Not is a slave greater of the lord of himself. If me they persecuted, also you they will persecute; if the word of me they kept, also the yours they will keep.

21 But these things all they will do to you on account of the name of me, because not they know him sending me.

22 If not I had come and spoken to them, sin not they had; now but an excuse not they have about the sin of them.

23 He me hating, also the Father of me hates.

24 If the works, not I had done among them, which no one other has done, sin not they had; now but even they have seen, and have hated both me and that Father of me.

25 But, that may be fulfilled the word of having been written in the law of them: That they hated me without cause.

26 When but may come the helper, whom I will send to you from the Father, (the spirit of the truth, which from the Father shall come out,) that will testify concerning me.

27 Also you and shall testify, because from a beginning with me you are.
