John 10:1-21 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)
10 “ I tell legō you hymeis the solemn amēn truth amēn, the ho one who does not mē enter eiserchomai the ho sheepfold aulē through dia the ho gate thura, · ho but alla climbs anabainō in by some other way allachothen, is eimi a thief kleptēs and kai a robber lēstēs. 2 But de the ho one who enters eiserchomai by dia the ho gate thura is eimi the shepherd poimēn of the ho sheep probaton. 3 The ho watchman thurōros allows him houtos to enter anoigō, and kai the ho sheep probaton pay attention to akouō · ho his autos voice phōnē; · kai he calls phōneō · ho his idios own sheep probaton by kata name onoma and kai leads exagō them autos out. 4 When hotan he has brought out ekballō all pas · ho his idios own , he walks poreuō on ahead emprosthen of them autos, and kai the ho sheep probaton follow akoloutheō him autos because hoti they know oida · ho his autos voice phōnē. 5 They will akoloutheō never ou follow akoloutheō a stranger allotrios, · de but alla will run pheugō away from apo him autos, because hoti they do not ou know oida the ho voice phōnē of ho strangers allotrios.” 6 Jesus Iēsous told legō them autos this houtos · ho figurative paroimia story , · ho but de they ekeinos did not ou understand ginōskō what tis he was saying laleō to them autos.
7 So oun Jesus Iēsous said legō once again palin, · ho “ I tell legō you hymeis the solemn truth amēn, I egō am eimi the ho gate thura for the ho sheep probaton. 8 All pas who hosos came erchomai before pro me egō were eimi thieves kleptēs and kai robbers lēstēs, but alla the ho sheep probaton did not ou listen akouō to them autos. 9 I egō am eimi the ho gate thura. If ean anyone tis enters eiserchomai through dia me egō, he will be saved sōzō; · kai he will come eiserchomai in and kai go exerchomai out and kai find heuriskō pasture nomē. 10 The ho thief kleptēs comes erchomai only ei mē to hina steal kleptō and kai slaughter thuō and kai destroy apollymi; I egō have come erchomai that hina they may have echō life zōē, and kai have echō it abundantly perissos.
11 “ I egō am eimi the ho good kalos shepherd poimēn; · ho the ho good kalos shepherd poimēn · ho lays down tithēmi · ho his autos life psychē for hyper the ho sheep probaton. 12 The ho hired misthōtos hand , since kai he is eimi not ou a shepherd poimēn and the ho sheep probaton do not ou belong eimi to him idios, sees theōreō a ho wolf lykos coming erchomai and kai abandons aphiēmi the ho sheep probaton and kai runs pheugō away — and kai the ho wolf lykos attacks harpazō the flock autos and kai scatters them. 13 He does this because hoti he is eimi simply a hired misthōtos hand and kai has no ou real concern melei for peri the ho sheep probaton. 14 I egō am eimi the ho good kalos shepherd poimēn. · ho · kai I know ginōskō · ho my emos own and kai they emos know ginōskō me egō, · ho 15 just kathōs as the ho Father patēr knows ginōskō me egō and kagō I know ginōskō the ho Father patēr; and kai I lay down tithēmi · ho my egō life psychē for hyper my ho sheep probaton. 16 · kai I have echō other allos sheep probaton which hos are eimi not ou of ek · ho this houtos fold aulē. These kakeinos too I egō must dei bring agō. · kai They will listen to akouō · ho my egō voice phōnē, and kai there will be ginomai one heis flock poimnē, with one heis shepherd poimēn. 17 Therefore dia houtos the ho Father patēr loves agapaō me egō, because hoti I egō lay tithēmi down · ho my egō life psychē in order hina that I may take lambanō it autos back again palin. 18 No oudeis one takes airō it autos away from apo me egō, but alla I egō lay tithēmi it autos down of apo my emautou own free will.

This houtos · ho command entolē I received lambanō from para · ho my egō Father patēr.”
19 Once again palin there was ginomai a division schisma among en the ho Jews Ioudaios because dia of · ho these houtos words logos. 20 Many polys of ek them autos were saying legō, · de “ He is demon-possessed daimonion and kai out of control mainomai. Why tis are you listening to akouō him autos?” 21 Others allos were saying legō, “ These houtos are eimi not ou the ho words rhēma of a man possessed by a demon daimonizomai. Can dynamai a demon daimonion open anoigō the eyes ophthalmos of the blind typhlos?”
John 10:1-21 Expanded Bible (EXB)
The Shepherd and His Sheep
10 Jesus said, “·I tell you the truth [L Truly, truly I say to you], the person who does not enter the ·sheepfold [sheep pen] by the ·door [gate], but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. [C The sheep represent the people of God; the thief/robber stands for those who would lead them astray; Ps. 23; Ezek. 34.] 2 The one who enters by the ·door [gate] is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The ·one who guards the door [gatekeeper; watchman] opens it for him. And the sheep listen to the voice of the shepherd. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out [compare Num. 27:15–17]. 4 When he brings all his sheep out, he goes ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger. They will run away from him because they don’t know his voice.” 6 Jesus told the people this ·story [figure of speech; illustration; parable], but they did not understand what ·it meant [he was telling them].
Jesus Is the Good Shepherd
7 So Jesus said again, “·I tell you the truth [L Truly, truly I say to you], I am the ·door [gate] for the sheep. [C Jesus now refers to himself as the door rather than the shepherd.] 8 All the people who came before me were thieves and robbers [C others who claimed to be the Messiah]. The sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the ·door [gate], and the person who enters through me will be saved and will be able to come in and go out and find pasture [compare Ps. 118:20]. 10 A thief comes [L only] to steal and kill and destroy, but I came ·to give life [L that they might have life]—life in all its ·fullness [abundance].
11 “I am the good shepherd [contrast Zech. 11:17]. The good shepherd ·gives [lays down] his life for the sheep. 12 The ·worker who is paid to keep the sheep [L hired hand] is different from the shepherd who owns them. When the worker sees a wolf coming, he runs away and leaves the sheep alone. Then the wolf ·attacks [or snatches; seizes] the sheep and scatters them. 13 The man runs away because he is only a ·paid worker [hired hand] and does not really care about the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd. I know my ·sheep [L own], and my ·sheep [L own] know me, 15 just as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I ·give [lay down] my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not in this ·flock [fold; pen; C a reference to future Gentile followers of Christ], and I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The Father loves me because I ·give [lay down] my life so that I can ·take [receive] it back again. 18 No one takes it away from me; I ·give [lay down] my own life ·freely [voluntarily; of my own free will]. I have the ·right [power; authority] to ·give [lay down] my life, and I have the ·right [power; authority] to ·take [receive] it back. This is what my Father commanded me to do.”
19 Again ·the leaders did not agree with each other [L there was a division among the Jews] because of these words of Jesus. 20 Many of them said, “·A demon has come into him and made him crazy [L He has a demon and is crazy]. Why listen to him?”
21 But others said, “A man who is ·crazy with a demon [L demon-possessed] does not say things like this. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”
