"Ani Hu haGafen HaAmittit"
(I AM the True vine)
Tehillim 80:8-19; Yeshayahu 5:1-7; Yechezkiel 19:10
15:1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
15:2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
15:3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit on its own, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; because apart from Me you can do nothing.
15:6 If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
15:7 If you abide in Me, and My Divrei abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you.
15:8 Herein is My Avi glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be My Talmidim.
15:9 As ha Avi has loved Me, so have I loved you: continue you in My love.
15:10 If you Shomer My mitzvot, you shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My AVI's mitzvot, and abide in His love.
15:11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
15:12 This is My Mitzvah, That you love one another, as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.
15:14 You are My friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.
15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you chaverim, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
15:16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you may ask the Father in My Name He may give to you.
15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
15:19 If you were of the Olam Hazeh, the Olam Hazeh would love his own: but because you are not of the Olam Hazeh, but I have chosen you out of the Olam Hazeh, therefore the Olam Hazeh hates you.
15:20 Remember the Dvar that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also.
15:21 But all these things will they do to you for My Name's sake, because they know not him that sent Me.
15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
15:23 He that hates Me hates My Avi also.
15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both Me and My Avi.
15:25 But [this comes to pass], that the Dvar might be fulfilled that is written in their Torah, They hated Me without a cause.
15:26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from haAvi, the Ruach Emet who proceeds from haAvi, He will testify about Me.
15:27 And you also shall bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
