The Updated Modernity Version
15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.
1 "I am the genuine Vine, and my Father is the VINEdresser.
15:2 Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
He cleanses καθαιρει (2508)
2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, HE cuts away; and every branch that bears fruit HE prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
15:3 Now all of you are clean through the word (o. logos) which I have spoken unto you.
3 You are clean already through the teaching which I have given you.
15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can all of you, except all of you abide in me.
4 Continue in me, and let me live in you, also. As the branch cannot bear fruit in and of itself if it does not connect to the vine, so you cannot be fruitful if you do not live in me.
15:5 I am the vine, all of you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me all of you can do nothing.
5 I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who remains in me and I in him bears abundant fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing.
15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
withered [away] εξηρανθη (3583)
6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is thrown out like the unfruitful branch and withers away. The pruners gather up such branches and throw them into the fire to be burned.
15:7 If all of you abide in me, and my words (o. rhema) abide in you, all of you shall ask what all of you will, and it shall be done unto you.
7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask what you will and so it shall be done for you.
15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that all of you bear much fruit; so shall all of you be my disciples.
8 By this my Father is glorified—when you bear abundant fruit and prove to be my disciples.
15:9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: continue all of you in my love. (o. agape)
9 As the Father has loved me, similarly I have loved you, so continue in my love.
15:10 If all of you keep my commandments, all of you shall abide in my love; (o. agape) even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. (o. agape)
10 If you obey my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commandments and remain in HIS love.
15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
11 These things I have explained to you, that I would have joy in your company, and that your joy may become complete.
15:12 This is my commandment, That all of you love one another, as I have loved you.
12 Thus my commandment is that you should love one another as much as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love (o. agape) has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
13 No man has greater love than this—that he lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 All of you are my friends, if all of you do whatsoever I command you.
14 You are all my friends, if you do what I say.
15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
15 I will no longer call you servants, because servants do not know what their master is doing; but you are my friends, in that, all I have heard from the Father I have shared with you.
15:16 All of you have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that all of you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever all of you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and allowed you to go out and be fruitful so that your fruit would last; then whatever you ask of the Father in my name, HE may give you.
AR. the person = name
15:17 These things I command you, that all of you love one another.
17 This is my commandment overall, that you love one another.
15:18 If the world hate you, all of you know that it hated me before it hated you.
18 If you are hated by the world, you should know that it hated me first.
15:19 If all of you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because all of you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would love you; but you do not belong in the world because I have selected you to be distinct from the world—therefore the world hates you.
15:20 Remember the word (o. logos) that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, (o. logos) they will keep your[s] also.
20 Recall when I said, `A servant is not greater than his master.´ If the world has persecuted me, they will persecute you also: if they took heed to my teaching, they will take heed to yours as well.
15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
21 But all this will happen as you represent my name [read: Jesus], because the world does not know the ONE who sent me.
AR. name = the person = Jesus = universal language IHS = ENG.Jesus AR.Yeshua
15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
22 The people of the world would not have known of their sin, if I had not come and informed them about sin: now they have no cover for their sin.
15:23 He that hates me hates my Father also.
23 He who hates me, also hates my Father.
15:24 If I had not done among them the works which no other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
24 If I had not done the works among them that no one else did, they had not known their sin; but now they have seen and hated both my Father and me.
15:25 But this comes to pass, that the word (o. logos) might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
25 This has taken place so that the words written in the Law might be fulfilled, `THEY HATED ME WITHOUT A CAUSE´ (PS. 35:19, 69:4).
15:26 But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit (o. pneuma) of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me:
LATIN venerit Paracletus
26 When the Comforter is come whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of Truth who proceeds from the Father—He will be a witness about me.
15:27 And all of you also shall bear witness, because all of you have been with me from the beginning.
Witness μαρτυρειτε (3140)
27 And you will also bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning."
