if the world doth hate you, ye know that it hath hated me before you;
if of the world ye were, the world its own would have been loving, and because of the world ye are not -- but I chose out of the world -- because of this the world hateth you.
`Remember the word that I said to you, A servant is not greater than his lord; if me they did persecute, you also they will persecute; if my word they did keep, yours also they will keep;
but all these things will they do to you, because of my name, because they have not known Him who sent me;
if I had not come and spoken to them, they were not having sin; but now pretext they have not for their sin.
`He who is hating me, doth hate also my Father;
if I did not do among them the works that no other hath done, they were not having sin, and now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father;
but -- that the word may be fulfilled that was written in their law -- They hated me without a cause.
