John 10:12

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
New King James Version

“But he who is a hireling and not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
New American Standard Bible

“He who is a hireling, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, beholds the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees, and the wolf snatches them, and scatters them.
New International Version

The 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.
The Amplified Bible

But the hired servant – he who merely serves for wages – who is neither the shepherd nor the owner of the sheep, when he sees the wolf coming deserts the flock and runs away. And the wolf chases and snatches them and scatters [the flock].
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

The one who is a paid helper and not a shepherd, whose very own the sheep are not, watches with a discerning eye the wolf as he is coming, and sends away the sheep and flees, because he is a paid helper and it is not a concern to him regarding the sheep, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
Phillips’ Modern English

But the hired man, who is not the shepherd, and does not own the sheep, will see the wolf coming, desert the sheep and run away. And the wolf will attack the flock and send them flying.
Williams’ Language of the People

The hired man, who is not a shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away, and the wolf carries off some of the sheep and scatters the flock.
