John 15:18-25 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

18 If the world hate you, know ye, that it had me in hate rather than you [know ye, for it had me in hate first than you].

19 If ye had been of the world, the world should love that thing that was his; but for ye be not of the world, but I chose you from the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Have ye mind of my word, which I said to you [that I said to you], The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have pursued me, they shall pursue you also; if they have kept my word, they shall keep yours also.

21 But they shall do to you all these things for my name, for they know not him that sent me.

22 If I had not come, and had not spoken to them, they should not have sin; but now they have none excusation of their sin [forsooth now they have not excusing of their sin].

23 He that hateth me, hateth also my Father.

24 If I had not done the works in them, which none other man did, they should not have sin; but now both they have seen, and hated/have hated me and my Father.

25 But that the word be fulfilled, that is written in their law, For they had me in hate without cause.

John 15:18-25 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. However because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the saying that I said to you: the servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, so will they persecute you. If they have kept my sayings, so will they keep yours. 21 But they will do all these things to you for my name’s sake, because they have not known him who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin. But now they have nothing to cloak their sin with.

23 He who hates me, hates my Father. 24 If I had not done works among them which no other man did, they would not have sin. But now they have seen, and yet have hated both me and my Father, 25 even so that the saying is fulfilled that is written in their law: They hated me without a cause.

John 15:18-25 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

18 [a]If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also: if they have kept my word, they will also keep yours.

21 [b]But all these things will they do unto you for my Name’s sake, because they have not known him that sent me.

22 [c]If I had not come and spoken unto them, they should not have had sin: but now have they no cloak for their sin.

23 He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.

24 If I had not done works among them which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen, and have hated both me, and my Father.

25 But it is that the word might be fulfilled, that is written in their [d]Law, They hated me without a cause.

  1. John 15:18 It ought not only not to fear, but rather confirm the faithful ministers of Christ, when they shall be hated of the world as their Master was.
  2. John 15:21 The hatred that the world beareth against Christ, proceedeth of the blockishness of the mind, which notwithstanding is voluntary blind, so that the world can pretend no excuse to cover their fault.
  3. John 15:22 As who would say, If I had not come, these men would not have stuck to have said still before God’s judgment seat, that they are religious, and void of sin: but seeing I came to them, and they clean refuse me, they can have no cloak for their wickedness.
  4. John 15:25 Sometime by this word, Law, are meant the five books of Moses, but in this place, the whole Scripture: for the place alleged is in the Psalms.
