New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
18 "If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you. 18 "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world—therefore 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 that I said to you, "Servants are not greater than their master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, 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 they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who 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 would not have 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 Whoever hates me hates my Father also. 23 He who hates me hates my Father as well.
24 If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not have sin. But now they have 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 It was to fulfill the word 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 "When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. 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 You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning. 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
