John 15 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

The Vine and the Branches

1. I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.

2. Every branch in Me not bearing fruit, He takes it away; and every branch bearing fruit, He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.

3. You are already pruned because of the Word which I have spoken to you.

4. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to bear fruit of itself, if not it abide in the vine, so neither can you if not you abide in Me.

5. I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because without Me you are not able to produce, not one thing.

6. If not one abides in Me, he is cast out as the branch and is dried up; and they gather them, and they throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

7. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, whatever you desire you will ask, and it will be done to you.

8. In this My Father is glorified, that you should bear much fruit; and you will be disciples to Me.

9. As the Father loved Me, I also loved you; continue in My love.

10. If you keep My commandments you will continue in My love, as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love.

11. I have spoken these things to you that My joy may abide in you, and your joy may be made full.

12. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I loved you.

13. Greater love than this has no one, that someone should lay down his soul for his friends.

14. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

15. I no longer call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master does. But I called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I made known to you.

16. You have not chosen Me, but I chose you and appointed you, that you should go and should bear fruit, and your fruit remain, that whatever you may ask the Father in My name, He may give you.

17. These things I command you, that you love one another.

The World Hates the Disciples

18. If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before you.

19. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.

20. Remember the Word which I said to you, A slave is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they also will persecute you. If they kept My Word, they also will keep yours.

21. But all these things they will do to you on account of My name, because they do not know the One having sent Me.

22. If I had not come and had not spoken to them, they had no sin. But now they have no excuse as to their sin.

23. The one hating Me also hates My Father.

24. If I did not do the works among them which no other did, they had no sin. But now they both have seen and also have hated Me and My Father.

25. But that may be fulfilled the Word that has been written in their Law, “They hated Me undeservedly. Psalms 69:4

The Work of the Holy Spirit

26. But when the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth who proceeds from the Father, that One will witness concerning Me.

27. And you also witness, because from the beginning you are with Me.
