John 10


John 10:1 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.
John 10:2 But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep.
John 10:3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
John 10:4 When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.
John 10:5 A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers."
John 10:6 This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.
John 10:7 So Jesus said to them again," Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
John 10:8 All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
John 10:9 I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
John 10:11 "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
John 10:12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
John 10:13 He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep.
John 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
John 10:15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
John 10:16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd.
John 10:17 For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again.
John 10:18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father."
John 10:19 A division occurred again among the Jews because of these words.
John 10:20 Many of them were saying," He has a demon and is insane. Why do you listen to Him?"
John 10:21 Others were saying," These are not the sayings of one demon-possessed. A demon cannot open the eyes of the blind, can he?"
John 10:22 At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem;
John 10:23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon.
John 10:24 The Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him," How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."
John 10:25 Jesus answered them," I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me.
John 10:26 But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.
John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
John 10:28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
John 10:29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.
John 10:30 I and the Father are one."
John 10:31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him.
John 10:32 Jesus answered them," I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?"
John 10:33 The Jews answered Him," For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."
John 10:34 Jesus answered them," Has it not been written in your Law, 'I said, you are gods'?
John 10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
John 10:36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming, 'because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
John 10:37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
John 10:38 but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father."
John 10:39 Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp.
John 10:40 And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there.
John 10:41 Many came to Him and were saying," While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true."
John 10:42 Many believed in Him there.

John 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. John 10:4 When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.

John 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. John 10:5 A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers." John 10:5 ἀλλοτρίῳ δὲ οὐ μὴ ἀκολουθήσουσιν ἀλλὰ φεύξονται ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν τῶν ἀλλοτρίων τὴν φωνήν.
John 10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. John 10:6 This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them.

John 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. John 10:13 He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep. John 10:13 ὅτι μισθωτός ἐστιν καὶ οὐ μέλει αὐτῶ περὶ τῶν προβάτων.

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

John 10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? John 10:21 Others were saying," These are not the sayings of one demon-possessed. A demon cannot open the eyes of the blind, can he?" John 10:21 ἄλλοι ἔλεγον, ταῦτα τὰ ῥήματα οὐκ ἔστιν δαιμονιζομένου· μὴ δαιμόνιον δύναται τυφλῶν ὀφθαλμοὺς ἀνοῖξαι;

John 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. John 10:25 Jesus answered them," I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me. John 10:25 ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, εἶπον ὑμῖν καὶ οὐ πιστεύετε· τὰ ἔργα ἃ ἐγὼ ποιῶ ἐν τῶ ὀνόματι τοῦ πατρός μου ταῦτα μαρτυρεῖ περὶ ἐμοῦ·

John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. John 10:33 The Jews answered Him," For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God." John 10:33 ἀπεκρίθησαν αὐτῶ οἱ ἰουδαῖοι, περὶ καλοῦ ἔργου οὐ λιθάζομέν σε ἀλλὰ περὶ βλασφημίας, καὶ ὅτι σὺ ἄνθρωπος ὢν ποιεῖς σεαυτὸν θεόν.
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? John 10:34 Jesus answered them," Has it not been written in your Law, 'I said, you are gods'? John 10:34 ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς [ὁ] ἰησοῦς, οὐκ ἔστιν γεγραμμένον ἐν τῶ νόμῳ ὑμῶν ὅτι ἐγὼ εἶπα, θεοί ἐστε;
John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; John 10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), John 10:35 εἰ ἐκείνους εἶπεν θεοὺς πρὸς οὓς ὁ λόγος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐγένετο, καὶ οὐ δύναται λυθῆναι ἡ γραφή,
John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? John 10:36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming, 'because I said, 'I am the Son of God'? John 10:36 ὃν ὁ πατὴρ ἡγίασεν καὶ ἀπέστειλεν εἰς τὸν κόσμον ὑμεῖς λέγετε ὅτι βλασφημεῖς, ὅτι εἶπον, υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ εἰμι;
John 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. John 10:37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; John 10:37 εἰ οὐ ποιῶ τὰ ἔργα τοῦ πατρός μου, μὴ πιστεύετέ μοι·
John 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. John 10:38 but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father." John 10:38 εἰ δὲ ποιῶ, κἂν ἐμοὶ μὴ πιστεύητε, τοῖς ἔργοις πιστεύετε, ἵνα γνῶτε καὶ γινώσκητε ὅτι ἐν ἐμοὶ ὁ πατὴρ κἀγὼ ἐν τῶ πατρί.
John 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, John 10:39 Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp. John 10:39 ἐζήτουν [οὗν] αὐτὸν πάλιν πιάσαι· καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῶν.
John 10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

John 10:41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. John 10:41 Many came to Him and were saying," While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true." John 10:41 καὶ πολλοὶ ἦλθον πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλεγον ὅτι ἰωάννης μὲν σημεῖον ἐποίησεν οὐδέν, πάντα δὲ ὅσα εἶπεν ἰωάννης περὶ τούτου ἀληθῆ ἦν.
John 10:42 And many believed on him there. John 10:42 Many believed in Him there. John 10:42 καὶ πολλοὶ ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ.
