John 15:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Henceforth - not (οὐκέτι)

Rev., better, no longer. No longer servants, as you were under the dispensation of the law. Compare Galatians 4:7.

Servants (δούλους)

Strictly, bond-servants.

Knoweth not (οὐκ οἶδέ)

Has no instinctive perception. See on John 2:24.

You

The position of the pronoun in the Greek is emphatic: "You I have called friends."
