(John 15:1-5)  I am the true vine [a vine (as coiling about a support)], and my Father is the husbandman [farmer]. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it [to cleanse, i.e. (spec.) to prune], that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean [clear, pure] through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
