I would attach EN EMOI to KLHMA. The whole section Jn 15:1-17 has to be
taken into consideration. There are TA KLHMATA which remain and there
are TA KLHMATA who are taken away. Before this sorting out takes place
both classes of TA KLHMATA are EN EMOI. I cannot make sense out of the
entire teaching segment if EN EMOI is attached to MH FERON as an adverb.
It disrupts the pattern of thought.
