2 Shepherd the flock of God in your care. Exercise the oversight, not of constraint, but willingly, according to the will of God. Do not do it for dishonest gain, but eagerly. 3 Do not lord it over your charge, but make yourselves examples to the flock. 4 When the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

15 Sanctify the Christ as Lord (kurios: master) in your hearts. Always be ready to answer every man who asks you a reason for your hope, yet with meekness (mildness) and respect!
15 My son, do not walk in the way with them. Withhold your food from their path! 16 For their feet run to evil. They hurry to shed blood. 17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. 18 They lie in wait for their own blood (murder). They set an ambush for their own lives. 19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust dishonest gain. Greed takes away the life of its owner. 20 Wisdom calls you! She raises her voice in the streets and marketplaces. 21 She calls in the streets, in the opening of the gates: in the city she utters her words. She says: 22 »How long, you simple (stupid) (foolish) ones, will you love simplicity (foolishness) (stupidity)? The scoffers delight in scoffing. Fools hate knowledge! 23 »Listen when I reprove you. I will pour out my spirit on you. I will make my words known to you. 24 »I called you! I stretched out my hand to you. You paid no attention to me. 25 »You have ignored all my counsel. You accept no correction. 26 »I also will laugh at your trouble. I will mock when your fear comes. 27 »Trouble and distress will surround you like a whirlwind, like a great storm. 28 »You will ask for my help, but I will not listen. You will search, but you will not find me. 29 »You have no use for knowledge and you refuse to respect Jehovah. 30 »You rejected my advice and paid no attention when I warned you. 31 »Now you will get what you deserve for what you have done. Your own advice will make you sick. 32 »Sin and self-satisfaction bring destruction and death to stupid fools. 33 »Whoever listens to me will be secure and will be free from the fear of evil.«
1 The proverbs 0f Solomon son of David, king of Israel: 2 To know wisdom and instruction. To discern and understand words. 3 To receive instruction with wisdom, justice, judgment and integrity. 4 To give wisdom and refinement to the simple. To the young man knowledge and discretion. 5 A wise man will hear and will increase learning. A man of understanding will procure wise counsel. 6 This will help him understand a proverb and the interpretation as well as the words of the wise and their riddles. 7 Respect for Jehovah (YHWH) is the beginning of knowledge (truth) (understanding) (wisdom). Fools despise wisdom and instruction. 8 My son, listen to the instruction of your father. Do not forsake the law of your mother. 9 Discipline and education are a graceful ornament on your head, and a golden chain around your neck. 10 My son, if sinners tempt you do not consent. 11 If they say: »Come with us. Let us lie in wait to kill someone. Let us ambush the innocent without cause. 12 »Let us swallow them alive and whole just as the grave does, and just as the dead go into the pit. 13 »We will find precious material possessions and we fill our houses with plunder. 14 »Throw in with us. Let us all have one purse.«
1 »Truly I tell you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs up some other way is a thief and a robber. 2 »He who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 »The doorkeeper opens to him and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his sheep by name and leads them. 4 »When all of his own are out he leads them. The sheep follow him for they know his voice. 5 »They will not follow a stranger but will flee from him. They do not know the voice of a stranger.« 6 They did not understand this illustration Jesus spoke to them. 7 Jesus explained: »I am the door of the sheep. 8 »Thieves and robbers came in place of me but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 »I am the door. If any man enters through me he will be saved. He will go in and out and find pasture. 10 »The thief comes to steal, and kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly. 11 »I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 »The hired man owns no sheep. He is not the shepherd. He sees the wolf coming and abandons the sheep. The wolf snatches them, and scatters them. 13 »He leaves because he is a hired man and does not care for the sheep. 14 »I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and my own know me. 15 Just as the Father knows me I know the Father! I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 »I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I will also bring them. They will hear my voice and they will become one flock, one shepherd. 17 »The Father loves me. Therefore I lay down my life and I take it back again. 18 »No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down voluntarily. I have authority (jurisdiction) (right) to lay it down, and I have authority to take it again. I have received this commandment from my Father.« 19 The Jews were again divided because of what Jesus said. 20 Many of them said: »He has a demon and is mad. Why listen to him?« 21 Others said: »These are not the sayings of one possessed with a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?« 22 It was the feast of the dedication at Jerusalem. 23 It was wintertime. Jesus was walking in the temple on Solomon’s porch (the Colonnade of Solomon). 24 The Jews came to him and asked: »How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.« 25 Jesus replied: »I told you and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness of me. 26 »You do not believe because you are not my sheep! 27 »My sheep hear my voice. I know them and they follow me. 28 »I give them eternal life. They will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 »My Father has given them to me. He is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 »The Father and I are one (united in purpose).« 31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus replied to them: »I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of those works do you stone me?« 33 The Jews answered him: »We do not stone you for good work but for blasphemy. You are a man and you make yourself like God.« (John 1:1) 34 Jesus said: »Is it not written in your law, I said, you are ‘god-like ones’? 35 »So if he called them ‘god-like ones,’ those to whom the word of God came, and the Scriptures may not be annulled, 36 »do you say to the one whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, you blaspheme? And this because I said, I am the Son of God. (Psalm 82:1, 6) (John 1:34; 5:18) (Luke 1:35) 37 »If I am not doing the works of my Father, do not believe me. 38 »But if I do them and you do not believe me, believe the works! That way you may know and understand that the Father is with me, and I am with the Father.« 39 They tried again to capture him but he escaped from them. 40 He traveled beyond the Jordan into the place where John first baptized and stayed there. 41 Many came to him and they said: »John indeed did not perform a single miracle. Yet everything John said about this man was true.« 42 Many believed in him there.
1 ([Psalm of David]) Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores me and he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.
