John 15

BBE 1 I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. NIV 1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. BBE 2 He takes away every branch in me which has no fruit, and every branch which has fruit he makes clean, so that it may have more fruit. NIV 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. BBE 3 You are clean, even now, through the teaching which I have given you. NIV 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. BBE 4 Be in me at all times as I am in you. As the branch is not able to give fruit of itself, if it is not still on the vine, so you are not able to do so if you are not in me. NIV 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. BBE 5 I am the vine, you are the branches: he who is in me at all times as I am in him, gives much fruit, because without me you are able to do nothing. NIV 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. BBE 6 If a man does not keep himself in me, he becomes dead and is cut off like a dry branch; such branches are taken up and put in the fire and burned. NIV 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. BBE 7 If you are in me at all times, and my words are in you, then anything for which you make a request will be done for you. NIV 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. BBE 8 Here is my Father's glory, in that you give much fruit and so are my true disciples. NIV 8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. BBE 9 Even as the Father has given me his love, so I have given my love to you: be ever in my love. NIV 9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. BBE 10 If you keep my laws, you will be ever in my love, even as I have kept my Father's laws, and am ever in his love. NIV 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. BBE 11 I have said these things to you so that I may have joy in you and so that your joy may be complete. NIV 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. BBE 12 This is the law I give you: Have love one for another, even as I have love for you. NIV 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. BBE 13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man gives up his life for his friends. NIV 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. BBE 14 You are my friends, if you do what I give you orders to do. NIV 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. BBE 15 No longer do I give you the name of servants; because a servant is without knowledge of what his master is doing: I give you the name of friends, because I have given you knowledge of all the things which my Father has said to me. NIV 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. BBE 16 You did not take me for yourselves, but I took you for myself; and I gave you the work of going about and producing fruit which will be for ever; so that whatever request you make to the Father in my name he may give it to you. NIV 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. BBE 17 So this is my law for you: Have love one for another. NIV 17 This is my command: Love each other. BBE 18 If you are hated by the world, keep in mind that I was hated by the world before you. NIV 18 "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. BBE 19 If you were of the world, you would be loved by the world: but because you are not of the world, but I have taken you out of the world, you are hated by the world. NIV 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. BBE 20 Keep in mind the words I said to you, A servant is not greater than his lord. If they were cruel to me, they will be cruel to you; if they kept my words, they will keep yours. NIV 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. BBE 21 They will do all this to you because of my name--because they have no knowledge of him who sent me. NIV 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. BBE 22 If I had not come and been their teacher they would have had no sin: but now they have no reason to give for their sin. NIV 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. BBE 23 He who has hate for me has hate for my Father. NIV 23 He who hates me hates my Father as well. BBE 24 If I had not done among them the works which no other man ever did, they would have had no sin: but now they have seen, and they have had hate in their hearts for me and my Father. NIV 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. BBE 25 This comes about so that the writing in their law may be made true, Their hate for me was without cause. NIV 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: 'They hated me without reason.' BBE 26 When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father even the Spirit of true knowledge who comes from the Father--he will give witness about me; NIV 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. BBE 27 And you, in addition, will give witness because you have been with me from the first. NIV 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
