He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,(A) while every branch that does bear fruit(B) he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.(C) Remain in me, as I also remain in you.(D) No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;(E) apart from me you can do nothing.
