1 I am a very vine, and my Father is an earth-tiller.
2 Each branch in me that beareth not fruit, he shall take away it [he shall do it away]; and each that beareth fruit, he shall purge it, that it bear the more fruit [that it bear more fruit].
3 Now ye be clean, for the word that I have spoken to you.
4 Dwell ye in me, and I in you; as a branch may not make fruit of itself, but it dwell in the vine, so neither ye, but ye dwell in me.
5 I am the vine, ye be the branches. Who that dwelleth in me, and I in him, this beareth much fruit, for without me, ye be able to nothing do. [+I am the vine, ye be the branches. He that dwelleth in me, and I in him, this beareth much fruit, for without me, ye may nothing do.]
6 If any man dwelleth not in me, he shall be cast out as a branch, and shall wax dry; and they shall gather him, and they shall cast him into the fire, and he shall burn [and he burneth].
7 If ye dwell in me, and my words dwell in you, whatever thing ye will [whatever thing ye shall desire], ye shall ask, and it shall be done to you.
8 In this thing my Father is clarified, that ye bring forth full much fruit, and that ye be made my disciples.
9 As my Father loved me, I have loved you; dwell ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall dwell in my love; as I have kept the commandments of my Father, and dwell in his love.
11 These things I spake to you, that my joy be in you, and your joy be full-filled [and your joy be filled].
12 This is my commandment, that ye love together, as I have loved you.
13 No man hath more love than this, that a man put his life for his friends.
14 Ye be my friends if ye do those things, that I command to you.
15 Now I shall not call you servants, for the servant knoweth not, what his lord shall do; but I have called you friends, for all things whatever I heard of my Father, I have made known to you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I chose you; and I have put you [and put you], that ye go, and bring forth fruit, and your fruit dwell; that whatever thing ye [shall] ask the Father in my name, he give to you.
17 These things I command to you, that ye love together.
