Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am(A) the gate(B) for the sheep. All who have come before me(C) are thieves and robbers,(D) but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life,(E) and have it to the full.(F)

11 “I am(G) the good shepherd.(H) The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.(I) 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.(J) Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.
