16
1These things I have spoken unto you that ye may not be offended. 2They shall put you out of the synagogues; but the hour is coming that every one who kills you will think to render service to God; 3and these things they will do because they have not known the Father nor me. 4But I have spoken these things to you, that when their hour shall have come, ye may remember them, that I have said them unto you. But I did not say these things unto you from the beginning, because I was with you. 5But now I go to him that has sent me, and none of you demands of me, Where goest thou? 6But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
7But I say the truth to you, It is profitable for you that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go I will send him to you. 8And having come, he will bring demonstration to the world, of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9of sin, because they do not believe on me; 10of righteousness, because I go away to my Father, and ye behold me no longer; 11of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13But when he is come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear he shall speak; and he will announce to you what is coming. 14He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine and shall announce it to you. 15All things that the Father has are mine; on account of this I have said that he receives of mine and shall announce it to you.
16A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, because I go away to the Father. 17Some of his disciples therefore said to one another, What is this he says to us, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, and, Because I go away to the Father? 18They said therefore, What is this which he says of the little while? We do not know of what he speaks. 19Jesus knew therefore that they desired to demand of him, and said to them, Do ye inquire of this among yourselves that I said, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me? 20Verily, verily, I say to you, that ye shall weep and lament, ye, but the world shall rejoice; and ye will be grieved, but your grief shall be turned to joy. 21A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief because her hour has come; but when the child is born, she no longer remembers the trouble, on account of the joy that a man has been born into the world. 22And ye now therefore have grief; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you.
23And in that day ye shall demand nothing of me: verily, verily, I say to you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give you. 24Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25These things I have spoken to you in allegories; the hour is coming that I will no longer speak to you in allegories, but will declare to you openly concerning the Father. 26In that day ye shall ask in my name; and I say not to you that I will demand of the Father for you, 27for the Father himself has affection for you, because ye have had affection for me, and have believed that I came out from God.
28I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I leave the world and go to the Father. 29His disciples say to him, Lo, now thou speakest openly and utterest no allegory. 30Now we know that thou knowest all things, and hast not need that any one should demand of thee. By this we believe that thou art come from God. 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32Behold, the hour is coming, and has come, that ye shall be scattered, each to his own, and shall leave me alone; and yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. 33These things have I spoken to you that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye have tribulation; but be of good courage: I have overcome the world.
