It is I who answer and look after you.1

I am like an evergreen cypress;

dfrom me comes your fruit.


I am the vine; ayou are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bbears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me che is thrown away like a branch and withers; dand the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.


11 filled uwith the fruit of righteousness that comes vthrough Jesus Christ, wto the glory and praise of God.


which has come to you, as indeed kin the whole world it is lbearing fruit and increasingas it also does among you, since the day you mheard it and understood nthe grace of God in truth,
