his own, but because ye are not of the world, but I have chofen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The fervant is not greater than his lord. If they have perfecuted me, they will alfo perfecute you; if they have kept my faying, they will keep your's alfo. But all thefe things will they do unto you for my Name's fake, because they know not him that fent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had fin; but now they have no cloke for their fin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father alfo. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had fin: but now have they both feen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to país that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a caufe. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he mall teftify of me. And ye alfo fhall bear witness, becaufe ye have been with me from the beginning.
