4 As soon as, all his own, he hath put forth, before them, he moveth on, and, the sheep, follow him, because they know his voice; 5 But, a stranger, will they in nowise follow, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice, of strangers. 6 This similitude, spake Jesus unto them; but, those men, understood not what the things were which he was speaking unto them.
