John 10 (WEBP)

[1] “Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn’t enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, is a thief and a robber.
[2] But one who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
[3] The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
[4] Whenever he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.
[5] They will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him; for they don’t know the voice of strangers.”
[6] Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they didn’t understand what he was telling them.
[7] Jesus therefore said to them again, “Most certainly, I tell you, I am the sheep’s door.
[8] All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn’t listen to them.
[9] I am the door. If anyone enters in by me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out and will find pasture.
[10] The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
[11] “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
[12] He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who doesn’t own the sheep, sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep, and flees. The wolf snatches the sheep and scatters them.
[13] The hired hand flees because he is a hired hand and doesn’t care for the sheep.
[14] I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and I’m known by my own;
[15] even as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep.
[16] I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will hear my voice. They will become one flock with one shepherd.
[17] Therefore the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.
[18] No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down by myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. I received this commandment from my Father.”
[19] Therefore a division arose again among the Jews because of these words.
[20] Many of them said, “He has a demon and is insane! Why do you listen to him?”
[21] Others said, “These are not the sayings of one possessed by a demon. It isn’t possible for a demon to open the eyes of the blind, is it?”
[22] It was the Feast of the Dedication° at Jerusalem.
[23] It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in Solomon’s porch.
[24] The Jews therefore came around him and said to him, “How long will you hold us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
[25] Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you don’t believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name, these testify about me.
[26] But you don’t believe, because you are not of my sheep, as I told you.
[27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
[28] I give eternal life to them. They will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
[29] My Father who has given them to me is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
[30] I and the Father are one.”
[31] Therefore the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
[32] Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of those works do you stone me?”
[33] The Jews answered him, “We don’t stone you for a good work, but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”
[34] Jesus answered them, “Isn’t it written in your law, ‘I said, you are gods’?
[35] If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture can’t be broken),
[36] do you say of him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You blaspheme,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?
[37] If I don’t do the works of my Father, don’t believe me.
[38] But if I do them, though you don’t believe me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”
[39] They sought again to seize him, and he went out of their hand.
[40] He went away again beyond the Jordan into the place where John was baptizing at first, and he stayed there.
[41] Many came to him. They said, “John indeed did no sign, but everything that John said about this man is true.”
[42] Many believed in him there.

John 10 (KJVS)

[1] Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, He that entereth G1525 (PresMidPasDepPtc) not G3361 by G1223 the door G2374 into G1519 the sheepfold G4263 G833, but G235 climbeth up G305 (PresActPtc) some other way G237, the same G1565 is G2076 (PresInd) a thief G2812 and G2532 a robber G3027.
[2] But G1161 he that entereth in G1525 (PresMidPasDepPtc) by G1223 the door G2374 is G2076 (PresInd) the shepherd G4166 of the sheep G4263.
[3] To him G5129 the porter G2377 openeth G455 (PresActInd); and G2532 the sheep G4263 hear G191 (PresActInd) his G846 voice G5456: and G2532 he calleth G2564 (PresActInd) his own G2398 sheep G4263 by G2596 name G3686, and G2532 leadeth G1806 them G846 out G1806 (PresActInd).
[4] And G2532 when G3752 he putteth forth G1544 (Aor2ActSubj) his own G2398 sheep G4263, he goeth G4198 (PresMidPasDepInd) before G1715 them G846, and G2532 the sheep G4263 follow G190 (PresActInd) him G846: for G3754 they know G1492 (PerfActInd) his G846 voice G5456.
[5] And G1161 a stranger G245 will they G190 not G3364 follow G190 (AorActSubj), but G235 will flee G5343 (FutMidDepInd) from G575 him G846: for G3754 they know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756 the voice G5456 of strangers G245.
[6] This G5026 parable G3942 spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) Jesus G2424 unto them G846: but G1161 they G1565 understood G1097 (Aor2ActInd) not G3756 what things G5101 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) which G3739 he spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846.
[7] Then G3767 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) Jesus G2424 unto them G846 again G3825, Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the door G2374 of the sheep G4263.
[8] All G3956 that ever G3745 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) before G4253 me G1700 are G1526 (PresInd) thieves G2812 and G2532 robbers G3027: but G235 the sheep G4263 did G191 not G3756 hear G191 (AorActInd) them G846.
[9] I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the door G2374: by G1223 me G1700 if G1437 any man G5100 enter in G1525 (Aor2ActSubj), he shall be saved G4982 (FutPasInd), and G2532 shall go in G1525 (FutMidDepInd) and G2532 out G1831 (FutMidDepInd), and G2532 find G2147 (FutActInd) pasture G3542.
[10] The thief G2812 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756, but G1508 for to G2443 steal G2813 (AorActSubj), and G2532 to kill G2380 (AorActSubj), and G2532 to destroy G622 (AorActSubj): I G1473 am come G2064 (Aor2ActInd) that G2443 they might have G2192 (PresActSubj) life G2222, and G2532 that they might have G2192 (PresActSubj) [it] more abundantly G4053.
[11] I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the good G2570 shepherd G4166: the good G2570 shepherd G4166 giveth G5087 (PresActInd) his G846 life G5590 for G5228 the sheep G4263.
[12] But G1161 he that is G5607 (PresPtc) an hireling G3411, and G2532 not G3756 the shepherd G4166, whose G3739 own G2398 the sheep G4263 are G1526 (PresInd) not G3756, seeth G2334 (PresActInd) the wolf G3074 coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc), and G2532 leaveth G863 (PresActInd) the sheep G4263, and G2532 fleeth G5343 (PresActInd): and G2532 the wolf G3074 catcheth G726 (PresActInd) them G846, and G2532 scattereth G4650 (PresActInd) the sheep G4263.
[13] G1161 The hireling G3411 fleeth G5343 (PresActInd), because G3754 he is G2076 (PresInd) an hireling G3411, and G2532 G846 careth G3199 (PresActInd) not G3756 for G4012 the sheep G4263.
[14] I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the good G2570 shepherd G4166, and G2532 know G1097 (PresActInd) my G1699 [sheep], and G2532 am known G1097 (PresPasInd) of G5259 mine G1699.
[15] As G2531 the Father G3962 knoweth G1097 (PresActInd) me G3165, even so G2504 know G1097 (PresActInd) I G2504 the Father G3962: and G2532 I lay down G5087 (PresActInd) my G3450 life G5590 for G5228 the sheep G4263.
[16] And G2532 other G243 sheep G4263 I have G2192 (PresActInd), which G3739 are G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 of G1537 this G5026 fold G833: them also G2548 I G3165 must G1163 (PresInd) bring G71 (Aor2ActInf), and G2532 they shall hear G191 (FutActInd) my G3450 voice G5456; and G2532 there shall be G1096 (FutMidDepInd) one G3391 fold G4167, [and] one G1520 shepherd G4166.
[17] Therefore G5124 G1223 doth G25 my Father G3962 love G25 (PresActInd) me G3165, because G3754 I G1473 lay down G5087 (PresActInd) my G3450 life G5590, that G2443 I might take G2983 (Aor2ActSubj) it G846 again G3825.
[18] No man G3762 taketh G142 (PresActInd) it G846 from G575 me G1700, but G235 I G1473 lay G5087 it G846 down G5087 (PresActInd) of G575 myself G1683. I have G2192 (PresActInd) power G1849 to lay G5087 it G846 down G5087 (Aor2ActInf), and G2532 I have G2192 (PresActInd) power G1849 to take G2983 (Aor2ActInf) it G846 again G3825. This G5026 commandment G1785 have I received G2983 (Aor2ActInd) of G3844 my G3450 Father G3962.
[19] There was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a division G4978 therefore G3767 again G3825 among G1722 the Jews G2453 for G1223 these G5128 sayings G3056.
[20] And G1161 many G4183 of G1537 them G846 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), He hath G2192 (PresActInd) a devil G1140, and G2532 is mad G3105 (PresMidPasDepInd); why G5101 hear ye G191 (PresActInd) him G846?
[21] Others G243 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), These G5023 are G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 the words G4487 of him that hath a devil G1139 (PresMidPasDepPtc). Can G3361 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) a devil G1140 open G455 (PresActInf) the eyes G3788 of the blind G5185?
[22] And G1161 it was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) at G1722 Jerusalem G2414 the feast of the dedication G1456, and G2532 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) winter G5494.
[23] And G2532 Jesus G2424 walked G4043 (ImpfActInd) in G1722 the temple G2411 in G1722 Solomon’s G4672 porch G4745.
[24] Then G3767 came G2944 the Jews G2453 round about G2944 (AorActInd) him G846, and G2532 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto him G846, How long G2193 G4219 dost thou make G142 (PresActInd) us G2257 to doubt G5590? If G1487 thou G4771 be G1488 (PresInd) the Christ G5547, tell G2036 (Aor2ActImpr) us G2254 plainly G3954.
[25] Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, I told G2036 (Aor2ActInd) you G5213, and G2532 ye believed G4100 (PresActInd) not G3756: the works G2041 that G3739 I G1473 do G4160 (PresActInd) in G1722 my G3450 Father’s G3962 name G3686, they G5023 bear witness G3140 (PresActInd) of G4012 me G1700.
[26] But G235 ye G5210 believe G4100 (PresActInd) not G3756, because G1063 ye are G2075 (PresInd) not G3756 of G1537 my G1699 sheep G4263, as G2531 I said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto you G5213.
[27] My G1699 sheep G4263 hear G191 (PresActInd) my G3450 voice G5456, and I G2504 know G1097 (PresActInd) them G846, and G2532 they follow G190 (PresActInd) me G3427:
[28] And I G2504 give G1325 (PresActInd) unto them G846 eternal G166 life G2222; and G2532 they shall G622 never G3364 G1519 G165 perish G622 (Aor2MidSubj), neither G2532 G3756 shall G726 any G5100 [man] pluck G726 (FutActInd) them G846 out of G1537 my G3450 hand G5495.
[29] My G3450 Father G3962, which G3739 gave G1325 (PerfActInd) [them] me G3427, is G2076 (PresInd) greater than G3187 all G3956; and G2532 no G3762 [man] is able G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) to pluck G726 (PresActInf) [them] out of G1537 my G3450 Father’s G3962 hand G5495.
[30] I G1473 and G2532 [my] Father G3962 are G2070 (PresInd) one G1520.
[31] Then G3767 the Jews G2453 took up G941 (AorActInd) stones G3037 again G3825 to G2443 stone G3034 (AorActSubj) him G846.
[32] Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, Many G4183 good G2570 works G2041 have I shewed G1166 (AorActInd) you G5213 from G1537 my G3450 Father G3962; for G1223 which G4169 of those G846 works G2041 do ye stone G3034 (PresActInd) me G3165?
[33] The Jews G2453 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), For G4012 a good G2570 work G2041 we stone G3034 (PresActInd) thee G4571 not G3756; but G235 for G4012 blasphemy G988; and G2532 because G3754 that thou G4771, being G5607 (PresPtc) a man G444, makest G4160 (PresActInd) thyself G4572 God G2316.
[34] Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, Is it G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 your G5216 law G3551, I G1473 said G2036 (AorActInd), Ye are G2075 (PresInd) gods G2316?
[35] If G1487 he called G2036 (Aor2ActInd) them G1565 gods G2316, unto G4314 whom G3739 the word G3056 of God G2316 came G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), and G2532 the scripture G1124 cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) be broken G3089 (AorPasInf);
[36] Say G3004 (PresActInd) ye G5210 of him, whom G3739 the Father G3962 hath sanctified G37 (AorActInd), and G2532 sent G649 (AorActInd) into G1519 the world G2889, G3754 Thou blasphemest G987 (PresActInd); because G3754 I said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), I am G1510 (PresInd) the Son G5207 of God G2316?
[37] If G1487 I do G4160 (PresActInd) not G3756 the works G2041 of my G3450 Father G3962, believe G4100 (PresActImpr) me G3427 not G3361.
[38] But G1161 if G1487 I do G4160 (PresActInd), though G2579 ye believe G4100 (PresActSubj) not G3361 me G1698, believe G4100 (AorActImpr) the works G2041: that G2443 ye may know G1097 (Aor2ActSubj), and G2532 believe G4100 (AorActSubj), that G3754 the Father G3962 [is] in G1722 me G1698, and I G2504 in G1722 him G846.
[39] Therefore G3767 they sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) again G3825 to take G4084 (AorActInf) him G846: but G2532 he escaped G1831 (Aor2ActInd) out of G1537 their G846 hand G5495,
[40] And G2532 went away G565 (Aor2ActInd) again G3825 beyond G4008 Jordan G2446 into G1519 the place G5117 where G3699 John G2491 at first G4412 baptized G907 (PresActPtc) G2258 (ImpfInd); and G2532 there G1563 he abode G3306 (AorActInd).
[41] And G2532 many G4183 resorted G2064 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, and G2532 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), G3754 John G2491 did G4160 (AorActInd) no G3303 G3762 miracle G4592: but G1161 all things G3956 that G3745 John G2491 spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) of G4012 this man G5127 were G2258 (ImpfInd) true G227.
[42] And G2532 many G4183 believed G4100 (AorActInd) on G1519 him G846 there G1563.

Young’s Literal Translation

John 10 (YLT)

[1] ‘Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is not entering through the door to the fold of the sheep, but is going up from another side, that one is a thief and a robber;
[2] and he who is entering through the door is shepherd of the sheep;
[3] to this one the doorkeeper doth open, and the sheep hear his voice, and his own sheep he doth call by name, and doth lead them forth;
[4] and when his own sheep he may put forth, before them he goeth on, and the sheep follow him, because they have known his voice;
[5] and a stranger they will not follow, but will flee from him, because they have not known the voice of strangers.’
[6] This similitude spake Jesus to them, and they knew not what the things were that he was speaking to them;
[7] Jesus said therefore again to them, ‘Verily, verily, I say to you-I am the door of the sheep;
[8] all, as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them;
[9] I am the door, through me if any one may come in, he shall be saved, and he shall come in, and go out, and find pasture.
[10] ‘The thief doth not come, except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
[11] ‘I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd his life layeth down for the sheep;
[12] and the hireling, and not being a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, doth behold the wolf coming, and doth leave the sheep, and doth flee; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep;
[13] and the hireling doth flee because he is an hireling, and is not caring for the sheep.
[14] ‘I am the good shepherd, and I know my sheep, and am known by mine,
[15] according as the Father doth know me, and I know the Father, and my life I lay down for the sheep,
[16] and other sheep I have that are not of this fold, these also it behoveth me to bring, and my voice they will hear, and there shall become one flock-one shepherd.
[17] ‘Because of this doth the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that again I may take it;
[18] no one doth take it from me, but I lay it down of myself; authority I have to lay it down, and authority I have again to take it; this command I received from my Father.’
[19] Therefore, again, there came a division among the Jews, because of these words,
[20] and many of them said, ‘He hath a demon, and is mad, why do ye hear him?’
[21] others said, ‘These sayings are not those of a demoniac; is a demon able blind men’s eyes to open?’
[22] And the dedication in Jerusalem came, and it was winter,
[23] and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the porch of Solomon,
[24] the Jews, therefore, came round about him, and said to him, ‘Till when our soul dost thou hold in suspense? if thou art the Christ, tell us freely.’
[25] Jesus answered them, ‘I told you, and ye do not believe; the works that I do in the name of my Father, these testify concerning me;
[26] but ye do not believe, for ye are not of my sheep,
[27] according as I said to you: My sheep my voice do hear, and I know them, and they follow me,
[28] and life age-during I give to them, and they shall not perish-to the age, and no one shall pluck them out of my hand;
[29] my Father, who hath given to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to pluck out of the hand of my Father;
[30] I and the Father are one.’
[31] Therefore, again, did the Jews take up stones that they may stone him;
[32] Jesus answered them, ‘Many good works did I shew you from my Father; because of which work of them do ye stone me?’
[33] The Jews answered him, saying, ‘For a good work we do not stone thee, but for evil speaking, and because thou, being a man, dost make thyself God.’
[34] Jesus answered them, ‘Is it not having been written in your law: I said, ye are gods?
[35] if them he did call gods unto whom the word of God came, (and the Writing is not able to be broken,)
[36] of him whom the Father did sanctify, and send to the world, do ye say-Thou speakest evil, because I said, Son of God I am?
[37] if I do not the works of my Father, do not believe me;
[38] and if I do, even if me ye may not believe, the works believe, that ye may know and may believe that in me is the Father, and I in Him.’
[39] Therefore were they seeking again to seize him, and he went forth out of their hand,
[40] and went away again to the other side of the Jordan, to the place where John was at first baptizing, and remained there,
[41] and many came unto him, and said-‘John, indeed, did no sign, and all things, as many as John said about this one were true;’
[42] and many did believe in him there.
