CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Know my sheep - Know my people, or my church. The word "know" here is used in the sense of affectionate regard or love. It implies such a knowledge of their wants, their dangers, and their characters, as to result in a deep interest in their welfare. Thus the word "knoweth," in John 10:15, is in John 10:17 explained by the word "loveth." Jesus knows the hearts, the dangers, and the wants of his people, and his kindness as their shepherd prompts him to defend and aid them.
Am known of mine - That is, he is known and loved as their Saviour and Friend. They have seen their sins, and dangers: and wants; they have felt their need of a Saviour; they have come to him, and they have found him and his doctrines to be such as they need, and they have loved him. And as a flock follows and obeys its kind shepherd, so they follow and obey him who leads them beside the still waters, and makes them to lie down in green pastures.

The Good Shepherd
Abbott -- the Divinity in Humanity
For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.
Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs And carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead the nursing ewes.
As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.
The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble, And He knows those who take refuge in Him.
"I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
"He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep.
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
