The world hates you because of me

  1. If the world hates you,
    be aware that me first, before you, it hated.
  2. If you belonged to the world,
    the world would love you as its own.
But because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world,
Because of this the world hates you.
  1. Remember what I told you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’
If they persecuted me,
they will also persecute you.
If they obeyed my word,
they will obey yours too.
  1. But they will do all these things to you
    on account of my name,

The world hates my Father
because of me

because they do not know the one who sent me.
  1. If I had not come and spoken to them,
they would not be guilty of sin.
But they no longer have any excuse for their sin.
  1. The one who hates me hates my Father too.
  2. If I had not performed among them the works that no one else did,
they would not be guilty of sin.
But now they have seen the works
and have hated both me and my Father.
  1. Now this happened to fulfill the word that is written in their law, ‘They hated me without reason.’
