1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2 Every branch in Me which does not bear fruit He takes away; and every [branch] which bears fruit He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.
3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit on its own, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
4 Remain with me and I with you. Just as a branch cannot give fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine; even so you cannot, unless you remain with me.
5 I am the vine, you [are] the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; because apart from Me you can do nothing.
5 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.
6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out like a branch and dries up; and they gather them and throw [them] into the fire, and they are burned.
6 Unless a man remains with me, he will be cast outside, like a branch which is withered; which they pick up and throw into the fire to be burned.
6 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.
7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what ever you may desire, and it shall be done for you.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
7 If you remain with me, and my words remain with you, whatever you ask shall be done for you.
8 By this My Father is glorified, that you may bear much fruit; and you will become My disciples.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and [so] shall ye be my disciples.
8 In this the Father will be glorified, that you bear abundant fruit, and be my disciples.
9 "Just as the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
9 Even as the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you: abide ye in my love.
10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and I abide in His love.
11 These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may abide in you, and that your joy may be full.
12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this, that one should lay down his life on behalf of his friends.
13 No one has a greater love than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.
14 You are My friends if you do what I command you.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do the things which I command you.
15 No longer do I call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
15 Henceforth I will not call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master does; but I have always called you my friends, because everything that I heard from my Father I made it known to 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 I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you may ask the Father in My name He may give to you.
16 Ye did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that ye should go and bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you. And I have appointed you, so that you may go forth and bear fruit, and so that your fruit may last. Then whatever you have asked of the Father in my name, he shall give to you.
17 These things I command you, that you may love one another.
17 This I command you: that you love one another.
17 I command these things to you, so that you love one another.
