If the world hate you, know a that it has hated me before you.
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.
Remember the word which I said unto you, The bondman b 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.
But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they have not known him that sent me.
If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
He that hates me hates also my Father.
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.
But that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, They hated me without a cause. c
