10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life, and [a]have it abundantly.
11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters the flock.13 He flees because he is a hired hand and does not care about the sheep.14 I am the good shepherd, and I know My own, and My own know Me,15 just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will listen to My voice; and they will become one flock, withone shepherd.17 For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it back.18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it back. This commandment I received from My Father.”
