Chapter 15


15:1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.
15:2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it that it may bear more fruit.
15:3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
15:4 Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.
15:6 If one does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
15:7 If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.
15:8 In this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and so you will become My disciples.
15:9 As the Father has loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
15:11 These things I have spoken to you that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be made full.
15:12 This is My commandment, that you love one another even as I have loved you.
15:13 No one has greater love than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 You are My friends if you do what I command you.
15:15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all the things which I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
15:16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and I set you that you should go forth and bear fruit and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give you.
15:17 These things I command you that you may love one another.
15:18 If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before you.
15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
15:20 Remember the word which I said to you, A slave is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted Me, they will persecute you also; if they have kept My word, they will keep yours also.

  • persecute /ˈpɜːrsɪkjuːt/逼迫
15:21 But all these things they will do to you because of My name, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
15:23 He who hates Me hates My Father also.
15:24 If I did not do among them the works which no one else has done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both Me and My Father.
15:25 But it is so that the word written in their law may be fulfilled, “They hated Me without cause.”
15:26 But when the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of reality, who proceeds from the Father, He will testify concerning Me;
15:27 And you testify also, because from the beginning you have been with Me.
