John 15:1-8 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 I am a very vine, and my Father is an earth-tiller.

Each branch in me that beareth not fruit, he shall take away it [he shall do it away]; and each that beareth fruit, he shall purge it, that it bear the more fruit [that it bear more fruit].

Now ye be clean, for the word that I have spoken to you.

Dwell ye in me, and I in you; as a branch may not make fruit of itself, but it dwell in the vine, so neither ye, but ye dwell in me.

I am the vine, ye be the branches. Who that dwelleth in me, and I in him, this beareth much fruit, for without me, ye be able to nothing do.[a]

If any man dwelleth not in me, he shall be cast out as a branch, and shall wax dry; and they shall gather him, and they shall cast him into the fire, and he shall burn [and he burneth].

If ye dwell in me, and my words dwell in you, whatever thing ye will [whatever thing ye shall desire], ye shall ask, and it shall be done to you.

In this thing my Father is clarified, that ye bring forth full much fruit, and that ye be made my disciples.

John 15:1-8 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The true vine. The husbandman and the branches. A doctrine of love. A sweet comfort against persecutions.

15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch that does not bear fruit in me, he will take away. And every branch that bears fruit he will prune, so that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean through the words that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and let me abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, no more can you unless you abide in me.

I am the vine and you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit. For without me you can do nothing. If a person does not abide in me, he is cast forth like a branch, and is withered; and men gather it and cast it into the fire, and it burns. If you abide in me, and my words also abide in you, ask what you will, and it shall be done for you. In this is my Father glorified: that you bear much fruit and be made my disciples.

John 15:1-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 1 By the parable of the vine, 2 and the branches,  5, 6 he declareth how the disciples may bear fruit.  12, 17 He commendeth mutual love. 18 He exhorteth them to bear afflictions patiently, 20 by his own example.

I [a]am that true vine, and my Father is that husbandman.

Every branch that beareth not fruit in me, he taketh away: and everyone that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Now are ye clean through the word, which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you: as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am that vine: ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me can ye do nothing.

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and withereth: and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they burn.

[b]If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask what ye will, and it shall be done to you.

[c]Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and be made my disciples.

  1. John 15:1 We are of nature dry and fit for nothing but the fire: Therefore that we may live and be fruitful, we must first be grafted into Christ, as it were into a vine by the Father’s hand: and then be daily shred with a continual meditation of the word and the cross; otherwise it shall not avail any man at all to have been grafted, unless he cleave fast unto the vine, and so draw juice out of it.
  2. John 15:7 He abideth in Christ, which resteth in his doctrine, and therefore bringeth forth good fruit: And the Father will deny such an one nothing.
  3. John 15:8 As who would say, Herein shall my Father be glorified, and herein also shall you be my disciples, if you bring forth much fruit.
