Verely verely I saye vnto you: he that entreth not in by ye dore into the shepefolde but clymeth vp some other waye: the same is a thefe and a robber.
He that goeth in by ye dore is the shepeherde of ye shepe:
to him the porter openeth and the shepe heare his voyce and he calleth his awne shepe by name and leadeth them out.
And when he hath sent forthe his awne shepe he goeth before them and the shepe folowe him: for they knowe his voyce.
A straunger they will not folowe but will flye from him: for they knowe not the voyce of straungers.
This similitude spake Iesus vnto them. But they vnderstode not what thinges they were which he spake vnto them.
Then sayde Iesus vnto them agayne. Verely verely I saye vnto you: I am the dore of the shepe.
All even as many as came before me are theves and robbers: but the shepe dyd not heare them.
I am the dore: by me yf eny man enter in he shalbe safe and shall goo in and out and fynde pasture.
The thefe cometh not but forto steale kyll and destroye. I am come that they myght have lyfe and have it more aboundantly.
I am ye good shepeheerd. The good shepeheerd geveth his lyfe for ye shepe.
An heyred servaut which is not ye shepeherd nether ye shepe are his awne seith the wolfe comynge and leveth the shepe and flyeth and the wolfe catcheth them and scattereth ye shepe.
The heyred servaut flyeth because he is an heyred servaunt and careth not for the shepe.
I am that good shepeheerd and knowe myne and am knowe of myne.
As my father knoweth me: even so knowe I my father. And I geve my lyfe for the shepe:
and other shepe I have which are not of this folde. Them also must I bringe that they maye heare my voyce and that ther maye be one flocke and one shepeherde.
Therfore doth my father love me because I put my lyfe from me that I myght take it agayne.
No man taketh it from me: but I put it awaye of my selfe. I have power to put it from me and have power to take it agayne: This comaundment have I receaved of my father.
And ther was a dissencion agayne amoge the Iewes for these sayinges
and many of them sayd. He hath the devyll and is mad: why heare ye him?
Other sayde these are not the wordes of him that hath the devyll. Can the devyll open the eyes of the blynde?
