- Verily, verily, I say to you, He that enters not in by the door to the fold of the sheep, but mounts up elsewhere, *he* is a thief and a robber;
- but he that enters in by the door is [the] shepherd of the sheep.
- To him the porter opens;
and the sheep hear his voice;
and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
- When he has put forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
- But they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.
- This allegory spoke Jesus to them, but they did not know what it was [of] which he spoke to them.
- Jesus therefore said again to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
- All whoever came before me are thieves and robbers;
but the sheep did not hear them.
- I am the door: if any one enter in by me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and shall go out and shall find pasture.
- The thief comes not but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and might have [it] abundantly.
- I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep:
- but he who serves for wages, and who is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees;
and the wolf seizes them and scatters the sheep.
- Now he who serves for wages flees because he serves for wages, and is not himself concerned about the sheep.
- I am the good shepherd;
and I know those that are mine, and am known of those that are mine,
- as the Father knows me and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for the sheep.
- And I have other sheep which are not of this fold: those also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.
- On this account the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it again.
- No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself.
I have authority to lay it down and I have authority to take it again.
I have received this commandment of my Father.
- There was a division again among the Jews on account of these words;
- but many of them said, He has a demon and raves;
why do ye hear him?
- Others said, These sayings are not [those] of one that is possessed by a demon.
Can a demon open blind people's eyes?
- Now the feast of the dedication was celebrating at Jerusalem, and it was winter.
- And Jesus walked in the temple in the porch of Solomon.
- The Jews therefore surrounded him, and said to him, Until when dost thou hold our soul in suspense?
If thou art the Christ, say [so] to us openly.
- Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye do not believe.
The works which I do in my Father's name, these bear witness concerning me:
- but ye do not believe, for ye are not of my sheep, as I told you.
- My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me;
- and I give them life eternal;
and they shall never perish, and no one shall seize them out of my hand.
- My Father who has given [them] to me is greater than all, and no one can seize out of the hand of my Father.
- I and the Father are one.
- The Jews therefore again took stones that they might stone him.
- Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewn you of my Father;
for which work of them do ye stone me?
- The Jews answered him, For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy, and because thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
- Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
- If he called *them* gods to whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken),
- do ye say of him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am Son of God?
- If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not;
- but if I do, even if ye believe not me, believe the works, that ye may know [and believe] that the Father is in me and I in him.
- They sought therefore again to take him;
and he went away from out of their hand
- and departed again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptising at the first: and he abode there.
- And many came to him, and said, John did no sign;
but all things which John said of this [man] were true.
- And many believed on him there.
