7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. v It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the * Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you. w 8 When He comes, He will convict the world about sin, righteousness, and judgment: 9 About sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father x and you will no longer see Me; 11 and about judgment, y because the ruler of this * world z has been judged. a
12 “I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now. b 13 When the Spirit of truth c comes, He will guide you into all the truth. d For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.
