15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.
15:3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
15:5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
15:7 If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done to you.
15:9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love.
15:11 I have spoken these things 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 Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.
15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant doesn`t know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, for everything that I heard from my Father, I have made known to you.
15:16 You didn`t choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you will ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
15:17 I command these things to you, that you may love one another.
15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you.
15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
15:20 Remember the word that I said to you: `A servant is not greater than his lord.` If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also.
15:21 But all these things will they do to you for my name`s sake, because they don`t know him who sent me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
15:23 He who hates me, hates my Father also.
15:24 If I hadn`t done among them the works which none other did, they wouldn`t have had sin. But now have they seen and also hated both me and my Father.
15:25 But that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their law, `They hated me without a cause.`
15:26 When the Counselor has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.
15:27 You will also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.
