The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 [As to] every branch in me not bearing fruit, he takes it away; and [as to] every one bearing fruit, he purges it that it may bring forth more fruit. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
3 Ye are already clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
4 Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abide in the vine, thus neither [can] ye unless ye abide in me. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, *he* bears much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing. 5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
6 Unless any one abide in me he is cast out as the branch, and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall come to pass to you. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
8 In this is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and ye shall become disciples of mine. 8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
9 As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love. 9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
10 If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 10 If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
11 I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and your joy be full. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
13 No one has greater love than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends if ye practise whatever I command you. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
15 I call you no longer bondmen, for the bondman does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things which I have heard of my Father I have made known to you. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and have set you that ye should go and [that] ye should bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide, that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name he may give you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
18 If the world hate you, know that it has hated me before you. 18 "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
19 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. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
20 Remember the word which I said unto you, The bondman 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. 20 Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
21 But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they have not known him that sent me. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin.
23 He that hates me hates also my Father. 23 He who hates me hates my Father as well.
24 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. 24 If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.
25 But that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, They hated me without a cause. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: 'They hated me without reason.'
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes forth from with the Father, *he* shall bear witness concerning me; 26 "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.
27 and ye too bear witness, because ye are with me from [the] beginning. 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
