Bible: John 15:18-21

The World’s Hatred

15:18If the world hates you, be aware 1  that it hated me first. 2  15:19 If you belonged to the world, 3  the world would love you as its own. 4  However, because you do not belong to the world, 5  but I chose you out of the world, for this reason 6  the world hates you. 7  15:20 Remember what 8  I told you, ‘A slave 9  is not greater than his master.’ 10  If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they obeyed 11  my word, they will obey 12  yours too. 15:21 But they will do all these things to you on account of 13  my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. 14
