1 "Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

1 “Your heart must not be troubled.(A) Believe(a) in God;(B) believe also in Me.

1 "Don't let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many homes. If it weren't so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.

2 "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places;(b) if not, I would have told you. I am going away(C) to prepare a place for you.

2 There are many rooms in my Father's house. If there weren't, I wouldn't have told you that I am going away to prepare a place for you, would I?

3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also.

3 "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

3 If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back(D) and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.(E)

3 And since I'm going away to prepare a place for you, I'll come back again and welcome you into my presence, so that you may be where I am.

4 Where I go, you know, and you know the way."

4 "And you know the way where I am going."

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

4 You know the way to where I am going.”(c)(F)

4 You know where I am going, and you know the way."

Jesus The Way To The Father

5 Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going. How can we know the way?"

5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?"

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

5 “Lord,” Thomas(G) said, “we don’t know where You’re going. How can we know the way?”

5 Thomas asked him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"

6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.

6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

6 Jesus told him, “I am(H) the way,(I) the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

6 Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus Reveals The Father

7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on, you know him, and have seen him."

7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

7 “If you know Me, you will also know(d) My Father.(J) From now on you do know Him(K) and have seen Him.”

8 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us."

8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us."

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

8 “Lord,” said Philip,(L) “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”

8 Philip told him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will satisfy us."

9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you such a long time, and do you not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. How do you say, 'Show us the Father?'

9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?

9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father.(M) How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

9 "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me?" Jesus asked him. "The person who has seen me has seen the Father. So how can you say, "Show us the Father'?

10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.

10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me?(N) The words I speak to you I do not speak on My own.(O) The Father who lives in Me does His works.(P)

10 You believe, don't you, that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I don't speak on my own. It is the Father who dwells in me and who carries out his work.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or else believe me for the very works' sake.

11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.
