John10:1 - 21


10:1 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

10:2 - But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

10:3 - To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

10:4 - And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

10:5 - And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

10:6 - This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

10:7 - Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

10:8 - All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

10:9 - I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

10:11 - I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

10:12 - But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

10:13 - The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

10:14 - I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

10:15 - As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

10:16 - And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

10:17 - Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

10:18 - No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

10:19 - There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

10:20 - And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
