John 15:18 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

If the world hate (εἱ μισεῖ)

Literally, hates. The indicative mood with the conditional particle assumes the fact as existing: If the world hates you, as it does.

Ye know (γινώσκετε)

This may also be rendered as imperative: Know ye.

It hated (μεμίσηκεν)

The perfect tense, hath hated. The hatred continues to the present time.

Before it hated you (πρῶτον ὑμῶν)

Literally, first in regard of you. See on John 1:15.
