1 I am the true vine,
and my Father is the gardener.
2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch
that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by
itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless
you remain in me.
5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in
him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
6 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown
away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and
7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish,
and it will be given you.
8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves
to be my disciples.
