3 You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]. 4 Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. 5 [a]I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.Read full chapter

English Standard Version
3 Already (A)you are clean (B)because of the word that I have spoken to you. 4 (C)Abide (D)in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; (E)you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that (F)bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.Read full chapter
