John Chapter 15 Darby English Bible

John 15:1

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

John 15:2

[As to] every branch in me not bearing fruit, he takes it away; and [as to] every one bearing fruit, he purges it that it may bring forth more fruit.

John 15:3

Ye are already clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you.

John 15:4

Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abide in the vine, thus neither [can] ye unless ye abide in me.

John 15:5

I am the vine, ye [are] the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, *he* bears much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:6

Unless any one abide in me he is cast out as the branch, and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

John 15:7

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall come to pass to you.

John 15:8

In this is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and ye shall become disciples of mine.

John 15:9

As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love.

John 15:10

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.

John 15:11

I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and your joy be full.

John 15:12

This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:13

No one has greater love than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14

Ye are my friends if ye practise whatever I command you.

John 15:15

I call you no longer bondmen, for the bondman does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things which I have heard of my Father I have made known to you.

John 15:16

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and have set you that ye should go and [that] ye should bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide, that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name he may give you.

John 15:17

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:18

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

John 15:19

If ye were of the world, the world would love its own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on account of this the world hates you.

John 15:20

Remember the word which I said unto you, The bondman is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my word, they will keep also yours.

John 15:21

But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they have not known him that sent me.

John 15:22

If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.

John 15:23

He that hates me hates also my Father.

John 15:24

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

John 15:25

But that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, They hated me without a cause.

John 15:26

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes forth from with the Father, *he* shall bear witness concerning me;

John 15:27

and ye too bear witness, because ye are with me from [the] beginning.
