The Good Shepherd.
VERILY, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him; for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
7 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.
8 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
9 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
10 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
