Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:1 - Verily, verily, I say to you, He that enters not in by the door to the fold of the sheep, but mounts up elsewhere, *he* is a thief and a robber;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:2 - but he that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:3 - To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:4 - When he has put forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:5 - But they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:6 - This allegory spoke Jesus to them, but they did not know what it was of which he spoke to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:8 - All whoever came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:9 - I am the door: if any one enter in by me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and shall go out and shall find pasture.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:10 - The thief comes not but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:11 - I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep:
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:12 - but he who serves for wages, and who is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf seizes them and scatters the sheep.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:13 - Now he who serves for wages flees because he serves for wages, and is not himself concerned about the sheep.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:14 - I am the good shepherd; and I know those that are mine, and am known of those that are mine,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:17 - On this account the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it again.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:18 - No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have authority to lay it down and I have authority to take it again. I have received this commandment of my Father.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:19 - There was a division again among the Jews on account of these words;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:20 - but many of them said, He has a demon and raves; why do ye hear him?
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:21 - Others said, These sayings are not those of one that is possessed by a demon. Can a demon open blind people's eyes?

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 10:36 - do ye say of him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am Son of God?

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
