1 I have told you these things, that ye may not be offended. They will put you out of the synagogues; 2 yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think he doth God service. 3 These things will they do, because they have not known the Father nor me. 4 But I have told you these things, that when the time shall come, ye may remember I told you them. I did not tell you these things at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 But now I go to him that sent me, and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have told you this, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 But I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go: for if I go not, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you. 8 And he coming will convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say to you; but ye cannot bear them now. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, he will speak; and he will shew you things to come. 14 He will glorify me; for he will take of mine, and shew it you. 15 All things that the Father hath, are mine: therefore I said, He will take of mine, and shew it you.
16 A little while and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
17 Then some of his disciples said to each other, What is this that he said to us? A little while and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while and ye shall see me? and, Because I go to the Father? 18 They said therefore, What is this little while that he speaketh of? We understand not what he saith.
19 Jesus knew they were desirous to ask him, and said to them, Ye inquire among you of this, that I said, A little while and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while and ye shall see me.
20 Verily, verily I say unto you, Ye will weep and lament; but the world will rejoice: ye will be sorrowful; but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21 A woman when she is in travel, hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembreth the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 22 And ye now therefore have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh from you. 23 And in that day ye shall not question me about any thing. Verily, verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give you. 24 Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name: ask (and ye shall receive) that your joy may be full.
25 I have spoken these things to you in parables: but the time is coming, when I will no longer speak to you in parables, but will shew you plainly of the Father. 26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not to you, that I will pray the Father for you. 27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed, that I came forth from God. 28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again I leave the world, and go to the Father.
29 His disciples say to him, Lo now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no parable. 30 Now we are sure thou knowest all things, and needest not that any should question thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered, Ye do now believe. But lo the hour is coming, 32 yea, is already come, that ye shall be scattered every one to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone; for the Father is with me. 33 I have spoken these things to you, that ye may have peace in me. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but take courage: I have overcome the world.
