1  Ich bin ein rechter Weinstock, mein Vater ein Weingärtner.
2  Eine jeglichen Reben an mir, der nicht Frucht bringet, wird er wegnehmen,
und einen jeglichen, der da Frucht bringet, wird er reinigen,
dass er mehr Frucht bringe.
5a  Ich bin der Weinstock, ihr seid die Reben.
4  Bleibet in mir und ich in euch.
Gleich wie der Reben kann keine Frucht bringen von ihm selber,
er bleibe denn am Weinstock,
also auch ihr nicht, ihr bleibet denn in mir.

1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it,
that it may bring forth more fruit.
5a  I am the vine, ye are the branches:
4  Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
except it abide in the vine;
no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
