Young's Literal Translation

John 10:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I-- know my sheep - I know, τα εμα, them that are mine: I know their hearts, their wishes, their purposes, their circumstances; and I approve of them; for in this sense the word to know is often taken in the Scriptures. Homer represents the goatherds as being so well acquainted with their own, though mixed with others, as easily to distinguish them.
Τους δ', ὡς' αιπολια πλατε' αιγων αιπολοι ανδρες

"As goat-herds separate their numerous flocks
With ease, though fed promiscuous."
And are known of mine - They know me as their father, protector, and Savior; they acknowledge me and my truth before the world; and they approve of me, my word, my ordinances, and my people, and manifest this by their attachment to me, and their zeal for my glory. The first clause of the 15th verse should be joined to the fourteenth.

After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
