7Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth: I am the gate for the sheep.

8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.

9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.He will come in and go out, and find pasture.

10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

12The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.

13The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
