and runs awayK—and the wolf snatchesL them and scattersM them. 13 The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not careN for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I knowO my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep.
17 For this reason the Father lovesX me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. 18 No one takesY it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have powerZ to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this commandAA from my Father.”
