14 “Don’t let your heart be troubled.ah BelieveG in God;ai believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am goingaj to prepare a place for you? 3 If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come againak and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also.al 4 You know the way to where I am going.”H,am
5 “Lord,” Thomasa said, “we don’t know where you’re going. How can we know the way?”
6 Jesus told him, “I amb the way,c the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you know me, you will also knowA my Father.d From now on you do know hime and have seen him.”
8 “Lord,” said Philip,f “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time and you do not know me, Philip? The one who has seen me has seen the Father.g How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?h The words I speak to you I do not speak on my own.i The Father who lives in me does his works.j 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Otherwise, believeB because of the works themselves.k
12 “Truly I tell you, the one who believes in mel will also do the works that I do. And he will do even greater works than these,m because I am going to the Father.n 13 Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it so that the Father may be glorifiedo in the Son.p 14 If you ask meC anything in my name,q I will do it.* r
15 “If you love me, you will keepE my commands.s 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor* t to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spiritu of truth.v The world is unable to receive him because it doesn’t see him or know him. But you do know him, because he remains with you and will beG in you.w
18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you. 19 In a little while the world will no longer see me,x but you will see me.y Because I live, you will livez too. 20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father,aa you are in me, and I am in you. 21 The one who has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.ab And the one who loves me will be loved by my Father.ac I also will love him and will reveal myself to him.”
23 Jesus answered, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.af 24 The one who doesn’t love me will not keep my words. The word that you hear is not mine but is from the Father who sent me.ag
25 “I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you. 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit,ah whom the Father will sendai in my name, will teach you all things ajand remind you of everything I have told you.ak
27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.al 28 You have heard me tell you, ‘I am going awayam and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father,an because the Father is greater than I.ao 29 I have told you now before it happensap so that when it does happen you may believe. 30 I will not talk with you much longer, because the ruler of the worldaq is coming. He has no power over me.H,ar 31 On the contrary, so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do as the Father commanded me.

About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
