1 Ego sum vitis vera, et Pater meus agricola est.
2 Omnem palmitem in me non ferentem fructum tollit eum; et omnem, qui fert fructum, purgat eum, ut fructum plus afferat.
3 Iam vos mundi estis propter sermonem, quem locutus sum vobis.
4 Manete in me, et ego in vobis. Sicut palmes non potest ferre fructum a semetipso, nisi manserit in vite, sic nec vos, nisi in me manseritis.
5 Ego sum vitis, vos palmites. Qui manet in me, et ego in eo, hic fert fructum multum, quia sine me nihil potestis facere.
6 Si quis in me non manserit, missus est foras sicut palmes et aruit; et colligunt eos et in ignem mittunt, et ardent.
7 Si manseritis in me, et verba mea in vobis manserint, quodcumque volueritis, petite, et fiet vobis.
8 In hoc clarificatus est Pater meus, ut fructum multum afferatis et efficiamini mei discipuli.
9 Sicut dilexit me Pater, et ego dilexi vos; manete in dilectione mea.
10 Si praecepta mea servaveritis, manebitis in dilectione mea, sicut ego Patris mei praecepta servavi et maneo in eius dilectione.
11 Haec locutus sum vobis, ut gaudium meum in vobis sit, et gaudium vestrum impleatur.
12 Hoc est praeceptum meum, ut diligatis invicem, sicut dilexi vos;
13 maiorem hac dilectionem nemo habet, ut animam suam quis ponat pro amicis suis.
14 Vos amici mei estis, si feceritis, quae ego praecipio vobis.
15 Iam non dico vos servos, quia servus nescit quid facit dominus eius; vos autem dixi amicos, quia omnia, quae audivi a Patre meo, nota feci vobis.
16 Non vos me elegistis, sed ego elegi vos et posui vos, ut vos eatis et fructum afferatis, et fructus vester maneat, ut quodcumque petieritis Patrem in nomine meo, det vobis.
17 Haec mando vobis, ut diligatis invicem.
18 Si mundus vos odit, scitote quia me priorem vobis odio habuit.
19 Si de mundo essetis, mundus, quod suum est, diligeret; quia vero de mundo non estis, sed ego elegi vos de mundo, propterea odit vos mundus.
20 Mementote sermonis, quem ego dixi vobis: Non est servus maior domino suo. Si me persecuti sunt, et vos persequentur; si sermonem meum servaverunt, et vestrum servabunt.
21 Sed haec omnia facient vobis propter nomen meum, quia nesciunt eum, qui misit me.
22 Si non venissem et locutus fuissem eis, peccatum non haberent; nunc autem excusationem non habent de peccato suo.
23 Qui me odit et Patrem meum odit.
24 Si opera non fecissem in eis, quae nemo alius fecit, peccatum non haberent; nunc autem et viderunt et oderunt et me et Patrem meum.
25 Sed ut impleatur sermo, qui in lege eorum scriptus est: "Odio me habuerunt gratis".
26 Cum autem venerit Paraclitus, quem ego mittam vobis a Patre, Spiritum veritatis, qui a Patre procedit, ille testimonium perhibebit de me;
27 sed et vos testimonium perhibetis, quia ab initio mecum estis.
King James Version
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 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.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 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.
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 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 ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 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.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command 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 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye 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.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 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.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your's also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 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 and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 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:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
