The Webster Bible (WBT) 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 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh away; and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he cleaneth it, that it my 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 Now ye are clean through 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, except it abide in the vine: no more can ye, except 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 abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth 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 If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered: and men 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 may ask what ye will, and it shall be done 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; so shall ye be my disciples. 8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even 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 These things have I spoken to you, that my joy may remain in you, and [that] your joy may 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 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man 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 do whatever I command you. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard from 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 ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it 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 hateth you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] 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, therefore the world hateth 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 that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 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 all these things will they do to you for my name's sake, because they know not 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 cloke 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 hateth me, hateth my Father also. 23 He who hates me hates my Father as well.
24 If I had not done among them the works which no other man hath done, they had not had sin: but now have they 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 [this cometh to pass], that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, 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, [even] the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he will testify 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 also shall bear testimony, because ye have been with me from the beginning. 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
