JN 10:1  Amen, amen I say to you: He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up another way, the same is a thief and a robber.

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

JN 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.

JN 10:4  And when he hath let out his own sheep, he goeth before them: and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.

JN 10:5  But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.

JN 10:6  This proverb Jesus spoke to them. But they understood not what he spoke to them.

JN 10:7  Jesus therefore said to them again: Amen, amen I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

JN 10:8  All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers: and the sheep heard them not.

JN 10:9  I am the door. By me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved: and he shall go in, and go out, and shall find pastures.

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

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

JN 10:12  But the hireling, and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flieth: and the wolf catcheth, and scattereth the sheep:

JN 10:13  And the hireling flieth, because he is a hireling: and he hath no care for the sheep.

JN 10:14  I am the good shepherd; and I know mine, and mine know me.

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

JN 10:16  And other sheep I have, that 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.

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

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

JN 10:19  A dissension rose again among the Jews for these words.

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

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

JN 10:22  And it was the feast of the dedication at Jerusalem: and it was winter.

JN 10:23  And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch.

JN 10:24  The Jews therefore came round about him, and said to him: How long dost thou hold our souls in suspense? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

JN 10:25  Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of my Father, they give testimony of me.

JN 10:26  But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep.

JN 10:27  My sheep hear my voice: and I know them, and they follow me.

JN 10:28  And I give them life everlasting; and they shall not perish for ever, and no man shall pluck them out of my hand.

JN 10:29  That which my Father hath given me, is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my Father.

JN 10:30  I and the Father are one.

JN 10:31  The Jews then took up stones to stone him.

JN 10:32  Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me?

JN 10:33  The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, maketh thyself God.

JN 10:34  Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said you are gods?

JN 10:35  If he called them gods, to whom to word of God was spoken, and the scripture cannot be broken;

JN 10:36  Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world: Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God?

JN 10:37  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

JN 10:38  But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.

JN 10:39  They sought therefore to take him; and he escaped out of their hands.

JN 10:40  And he went again beyond the Jordan, into that place where John was baptizing first; and there he abode.

JN 10:41  And many resorted to him, and they said: John indeed did no sign.

JN 10:42  But all things whatsoever John said of this man, were true. And many believed in him.
