Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. 1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce 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 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain 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; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. 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 anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw 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 you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
8 My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to 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 has loved Me, I have also loved you. Remain in My love. 9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
10 If you keep My commands you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commands and remain 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 so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. 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 command: 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 someone would 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 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
15 I do not call you slaves anymore, because a slave doesn't know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have heard from My Father. 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 You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will 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 This is what I command you: love one another. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
