1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener.
2 "Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit.
3 "You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you.
4 "Stay in Me, and I in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in Me.
5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who stays in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without Me you are able to do naught!
6 "If anyone does not stay in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 "If you stay in Me, and My Words stay in you, you shall ask whatever you want, and it shall be done for you.
8 "In this My Father is esteemed, that you bear much fruit, and you shall be My talmidim.
9 "As the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you. Stay in My love.
10 "If you guard My commands, you shall stay in My love, even as I have guarded My Father's commands and stay in His love.
11 "These I have spoken to you, so that My joy might be in you, and that your joy might be complete.
