15:1 I am a very vine, and my Father is an earth-tiller. I am the true vine, and my father is an husbandman. I am the true vine, and my Father is an husbandman. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
15:2 Each branch in me that beareth not fruit, he shall do it away; and each that beareth fruit, he shall purge it, that it bear more fruit. Every branch that beareth not fruit in me, He will take away. And every branch that beareth fruit will he purge that it may bring more fruit. Every branch that beareth not fruit in me, he taketh away: & every one that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Every 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.
15:3 Now ye be clean, for the word that I have spoken to you. Now are ye clean, be that means of the words which I have spoken unto you. Now are ye clean through the word, which I have spoken unto you. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
15:4 Dwell ye in me, and I in you; as a branch may not make fruit of itself, but it dwell in the vine, so neither ye, but ye dwell in me. Bide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it bide in the vine: no more can ye except ye abide in me. Abide 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. Abide 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.
15:5 I am the vine, ye be the branches. He that dwelleth in me, and I in him, this beareth much fruit, for without me, ye may nothing do. I am the vine, and ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. For without me can ye do nothing. I am the vine: ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, & I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me can ye do nothing. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
15:6 If any man dwelleth not in me, he shall be cast out as a branch, and shall wax dry; and they shall gather him, and they shall cast him into the fire, and he burneth. If a man bide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered: and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they burn. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and withereth: and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they burn. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered, and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
15:7 If ye dwell in me, and my words dwell in you, whatever thing ye shall desire, ye shall ask, and it shall be done to you. If ye bide in me, and my words also bide in you: ask what ye will, and it shall be given you. If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ask what ye will, and it shall be done to you. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
15:8 In this thing my Father is clarified, that ye bring forth full much fruit, and that ye be made my disciples. Herein is my father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and be made my disciples. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and be made my disciples. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, so shall ye be my Disciples.
15:9 As my Father loved me, I have loved you; dwell ye in my love. As my father hath loved me, even so have I loved you. Continue in my love. As the father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue in my love. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall dwell in my love; as I have kept the commandments of my Father, and dwell in his love. If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall bide in my love, even as I have kept my father’s commandments, and bide in his love. If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. If ye keep my Commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father’s Commandments, and abide in his love.
15:11 These things I spake to you, that my joy be in you, and your joy be filled. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love together, as I have loved you. This is my commandment, that ye love together as I have loved you. This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. This is my Commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.
15:13 No man hath more love than this, that a man put his life for his friends. Greater love than this hath no man, than that a man bestow his life for his friends. Greater love than this hath no man, when any man bestoweth his life for his friends. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 Ye be my friends if ye do those things, that I command to you. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15:15 Now I shall not call you servants, for the servant knoweth not, what his lord shall do; but I have called you friends, for all things whatever I heard of my Father, I have made known to you. Henceforth call I you not servants: For the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth. But you have I called friends: For all things that I have heard of my father, I have opened to you. Henceforth, call I you not servants: for the servant knoweth not what his master doeth: but I have called you friends: for all things that I have heard of my Father, have I made known to you. 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 I have heard of my Father, I have made known unto you.
15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I chose you; and put you, that ye go, and bring forth fruit, and your fruit dwell; that whatever thing ye shall ask the Father in my name, he give to you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that ye go, and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of my father in my name he should give it you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye go & bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my Name, he may give it you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my Name, he may give it you.
15:17 These things I command to you, that ye love together. This command I you, that ye love together. These things command I you, that ye love one another. These things I command you, that ye love one another.
15:18 If the world hate you, know ye, for it had me in hate first than you. if the world hate you, ye know that he hated me before he hated you. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before you. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
15:19 If ye had been of the world, the world should love that thing that was his; but for ye be not of the world, but I chose you from the world, therefore the world hateth you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own. Because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore hateth you the world. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: But because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
15:20 Have ye mind of my word, that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have pursued me, they shall pursue you also; if they have kept my word, they shall keep yours also. Remember my saying, that I said unto you: the servant is not greater than the lord. if they have persecuted me, so will they persecute you If they have kept my saying, so will they keep yours. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also: if they have kept my word, they will also keep yours. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than the Lord: if they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you. if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
15:21 But they shall do to you all these things for my name, for they know not him that sent me. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they have not known him that sent me. But all these things will they do unto you for my Name’s sake, because they have not known him that sent me. But all these things will they do unto you for my Name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
15:22 If I had not come, and had not spoken to them, they should not have sin; forsooth now they have not excusing of their sin. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they should have no sin: but now have they nothing to cloke their sin withal. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they should not have had sin: but now have they no cloke for their sin. If I had not come, and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
15:23 He that hateth me, hateth also my Father. He that hateth me, hateth my father. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
15:24 If I had not done the works in them, which none other man did, they should not have sin; but now both they have seen, and hated me and my Father. If I had not done works among them which none other man did, they should be without sin. But now have they seen, and yet have hated both me and my father: If I had not done works among them which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen, & have hated both me, and my Father. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen, & hated both me & my father.
15:25 But that the word be fulfilled, that is written in their law, For they had me in hate without cause. Even that the saying might be fulfilled that is written in their law. They hated me without a cause. But it is that the word might be fulfilled, that is written in their Law, They hated me without a cause. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
15:26 But when the comforter shall come, which I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth of the Father, he shall bear witnessing of me; But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the father, which is the spirit of verity, which proceedeth of the father, he shall testify of me. But when the Comforter shall come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth of the Father, he shall testify of me. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.
15:27 and ye shall bear witnessing, for ye be with me from the beginning. And ye shall bear witness also, because ye have been with me from the beginning. And ye shall witness also, because ye have been with me from the beginning. And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
