The Gospel of John Chapter 10:1-18 in the KJV and AWPR Translations

John 10:1-18

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue
Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow
My Comments are in Green

1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.  (KJV) 

1)   Amen.  Amen.  I lay down definite words and say unto you,
      He perhaps not coming and entering through the Door
      into the courtyard - field - pen   of 
      the quadrupeds that walk before or ahead / the Sheep,
      but going and ascending up by another way from elsewhere,
      that one there is a thief
            [who steals either secretly or by fraud]
      and a    
     [brazen - shamelessly open - impudent    and violent]   robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 

2)   Then he coming and entering through the Door
       is Shepherd to 
       the quadrupeds that walk before or ahead / the sheep.

3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.  (KJV)  

3)    To this One    the keeper of the Door / the Door keeper
        open opens,
        and   the quadrupeds that walk before or ahead / the sheep
        hears and listens attentively to the voice of Him (shining forth);
        and He calls forth out - summons - directs
        His own peculiar and private    quadrupeds / Sheep
        of His,  and brings - leads / conducts or carries  them out.


4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.    (KJV)   

4)   And when - And possibly whensoever
       He takes - ejects - casts out - throws out
       the own peculiar and private    quadrupeds / Sheep  of His,
       (bodily) up in front of them He passes through
       [the flock]   (as from one place to another);
       and the own peculiar and private    quadrupeds / Sheep   
       of His,  to Him accompany together and follow along,
       because they know and are acquainted with the voice of Him.


5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.      (KJV)    

5)   Then    a foreigner - a stranger - someone not one's own 
       certainly not perhaps not  - in no way
       should they accompany together and follow along, 
       but will run and escape in fear  fleeing from him,
       because they certainly do not know nor are acquainted with
       the voice of the  foreigners - strangers - those not their own.


6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.     (KJV)         

6)   This,   the allegory -  the figurative discourse
       [to describe a literal reality by the use of substitutes of
         similar or associative characteristics]
       Jesus / Yeshua  said to them.

       Those ones there, then, 

       certainly did not know nor perceive
       which it was He randomly spoke to them.


7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.    (KJV)        

7)   Therefore - Accordingly, again Jesus / Yeshua said to them,
       'Amen.  Amen.  I lay down definite words and say unto you
        that I AM:  the Door of 
        the quadrupeds that walk ahead or before / the Sheep.   


8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.    (KJV)       

8)   All who came (so as to make a public appearance) prior to Me
       are thieves  [who steal by stealth or fraud]
       and [shamelessly are open and violent] robbers;
       but the quadrupeds that walk ahead or before / but the Sheep
       certainly did not listen intently to nor hear them.

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.      (KJV)        

9)   I AM:  the Door.
       Through Me   if perhaps a certain one - if perhaps anyone
       come and enter, 
       he will be delivered - saved (from destruction),
       and will come and enter in,  and go and come out,
       and will find pasturage  [super-abundance to eat (and drink)].

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.   (KJV)            

10)    The Thief [who steals secretly or by fraud]
          certainly comes not and enters not 
          except in order that he may steal [secretly],
          and slay / kill   [ as if a sacrifice]   
          and wholly destroy.

          I came - I have come   in order that 

          they may have - hold - possess (and continue to possess)
          eternal life,
          and may have - hold - possess (and continue to possess) 
          it over and above measure - it abundantly and more.

11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.   

11)    I AM:  the Shepherd, the Good.
         The Shepherd, the Good,  sets - puts in place - lays down
         His soul     over - in behalf of - for
         the quadrupeds that walk ahead or before / the Sheep.

12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.     (KJV)  

12)    Then, the hired one - the wage earner
          certainly not being a Shepherd whose peculiar own the 
          quadrupeds / Sheep  are, 
          looks closely  and gazes with interest to behold 
          the Wolf coming and entering in,
          and forsakes - abandons - leaves and quits
          the quadrupeds / the Sheep
          and escapes - flees:
          and the Wolf  with (open and naked) violence
          seizes and snatches them away
          and scatters the Sheep.

13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.  (KJV)                    

13)   Then, the hired one - the wage earner
        escapes - flees    because he is    a hired one - a wage earner;
        and (there)  is certainly not a   care - interest - concern
        to him  round about - concerning the Sheep.


14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.    

14)     I AM:  the Shepherd, the Good.        
          And I know (by inquiry and examination)  
          (those that are) Mine,
          and am known (by inquiry and examination) 
          (from) under - through    Mine.

15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.    (KJV)        

15)   According as the Father knows Me (by inquiry and examination),
        I also know the Father (by inquiry and examination).

        And the soul of Me, I set - put - lay down  for 

        the quadrupeds / the Sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.   

16)   And other Sheep of the same kind 
        I have - hold - possess (and continue to possess)          
        which are certainly not out of this courtyard / (sheep) fold.

        And from that place,

        it is inevitably necessary for Me to lead - carry - remove.

        And the voice of Me they will hear and intently listen to,

        and will be one flock (under) one Shepherd.

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.     (KJV)                            

17)   Through this, the father joyously loves Me,
         because I set - put - place - lay down    the soul of Me
        in order that  I may take and seize it  (up)  again.

18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.       (KJV)                              

18)   Certainly not anyone - Certainly not even one
        takes up, removes, and carries it away from Me;
        but I set it - put it - place it - lay it down,
        and I have - hold - possess (and continue to possess)
        the (unhindered) authority of right, might, and power
        to take and seize it (up).

        This one Commandment - Charge - Commission

        I have received and taken up 
        from the presence - side - vicinity  of the Father of Me.'
