JOH 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for
JOH 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own
the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and
fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
JOH 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth
not for the sheep.
JOH 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of
JOH 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I
lay down my life for the sheep.
