To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

14 mI am the good shepherd. nI know my own and omy own know me,

28 lPay careful attention to yourselves and to all mthe flock, in which nthe Holy Spirit has made you ooverseers, pto care for qthe church of God,1 which he robtained swith his own blood.2

oshepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight,1 pnot under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you;2 qnot for shameful gain, but eagerly;

And when tthe chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the uunfading vcrown of glory.
