11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his
life for the sheep.
12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep.
So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons
the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf
attacks the flock and scatters it.
13 The man runs away because he is a hired
hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my
sheep and my sheep know me—
15 just as the Father knows me and
I know the Fatherand I lay down
my life for the sheep.
16 I have other sheep that are not
of this sheep pen. I must bring them
also. They too will listen to my
voice, and there shall be one
flock and one shepherd.
17 The reason my Father loves
me is that I lay down my life
only to take it up again.
18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it
down of my own accord. I have
authority to lay it down and
authority to take it up again.
This command I received from my Father.”
