10:1 icapserily, verily I say vnto you, He that entreth not by ye doore into the sheepefold, but climeth vp some other way, the same is a theefe, and a robber.  
10:2 But hee that entreth in by the doore, is the shepherd of the sheepe.  
10:3 To him the porter openeth, and the sheepe heare his voyce, and he calleth his owne sheepe by name, and leadeth them out.  
10:4 And when he putteth foorth his owne sheepe, he goeth before them, and the sheepe follow him: for they know his voyce.  
10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him, for they know not the voyce of strangers.  
10:6 This parable spake Iesus vnto them: but they vnderstood not what things they were which he spake vnto them.  
10:7 Then said Iesus vnto them againe, Uerily, verily I say vnto you, I am the doore of the sheepe.  
10:8 All that euer came before me, are theeues and robbers: but the sheepe did not heare them.  
10:9 I am the doore by me if any man enter in, he shall be saued, and shall goe in and out, and find pasture.  
10:10 The theefe commeth not, but for to steale and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might haue life, and that they might haue it more abundantly.  
10:11 I am the good shepheard: the good shepheard giueth his life for the sheepe.  
10:12 But hee that is an hireling and not the shepheard, whose owne the sheepe are not, seeth the woolfe coming, and leaueth the sheep, and fleeth: and the woolfe catcheth them, and scattereth the sheepe.  
10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, & careth not for the sheepe.  
10:14 I am the good shepheard, and know my sheepe, and am knowen of mine.  
10:15 As the father knoweth me, euen so know I the father: & I lay downe my life for the sheepe.  
10:16 And other sheepe I haue, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall heare my voyce; and there shall be one fold, and one shepheard.  
10:17 Therefore doth my father loue me, because I lay downe my life that I might take it againe.  
10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it downe of my selfe: I haue power to lay it downe, and I haue power to take it againe. This commandement haue I receiued of my father.  
10:19 There was a diuision therefore againe among the Iewes for these sayings.  
10:20 And many of them said, He hath a deuill, and is mad, why heare ye him?  
10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a deuill. Can a deuill open the eyes of the blind?  
10:22 And it was at Hierusalem the feast of the dedication, & it was winter.  
10:23 And Iesus walked in the temple in Solomons porch.  
10:24 Then came the Iewes round about him, and said vnto him, How long doest thou make vs to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell vs plainely. Margin Note
10:25 Iesus answered them, I told you, and ye beleeued not: the workes that I doe in my Fathers name, they beare witnesse of me.  
10:26 But ye beleeue not, because ye are not of my sheepe, as I said vnto you.  
10:27 My sheepe heare my voyce, and I know them, and they follow me.  
10:28 And I giue vnto them eternall life, and they shall neuer perish, neither shall any man plucke them out of my hand.  
10:29 My father which gaue them me, is greater then all: and no man is able to plucke them out of my fathers hand.  
10:30 I and my father are one.  
10:31 Then the Iewes tooke vp stones againe to stone him.  
10:32 Iesus answered them, Many good workes haue I shewed you from my Father; for which of those workes doe ye stone me?  
10:33 The Iewes answered him, saying, For a good worke we stone thee not, but for blasphemy, and because that thou, being a man, makest thy selfe God.  
10:34 Iesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods?  
10:35 If hee called them gods, vnto whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken:  
10:36 Say ye of him, whom the father hath sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Sonne of God?  
10:37 If I doe not the workes of my Father, beleeue me not.  
10:38 But if I doe, though yee beleeue not me, beleeue the works: that ye may know and beleeue that the Father is in me, and I in him.  
10:39 Therefore they sought againe to take him: but hee escaped out of their hand,  
10:40 And went away againe beyond Iordane, into the place where Iohn at first baptized: and there he abode.  
10:41 And many resorted vnto him, and said, Iohn did no miracle: but all things that Iohn spake of this man, were true.  
10:42 And many beleeued on him there.
