16 aThese things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not bbe offended. 2 They shall cput you out of the synagogues: yea, dthe time cometh, ethat whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God fservice. 3 And these things will they do unto you, gbecause they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But hthese things have I told you, that when dthe time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And ithese things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5 But now kI go my way to him that sent me; and lnone of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, msorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, nthe Comforter owill not come unto you; but pif I depart, qI will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will ||rreprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 sOf sin, tbecause they believe not on me; 10 uOf righteousness, wbecause I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 xOf judgment, because ythe prince of this world zis judged.
12 aI have yet many things to say unto you, bbut ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, cthe Spirit of truth, is come, dhe will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and ehe will fshew you things to come. 14 He shall gglorify me: for hhe shall receive of mine, and shall fshew it unto you. 15 iAll things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that hhe shall take of mine, and shall fshew it unto you. 16 kA little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and lye shall see me, mbecause I go to the Father.
17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, nA 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 that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith. 19 Now Jesus oknew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, nA 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, That ye shall pweep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but qyour sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21 A rwoman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 22 And ye now therefore have ssorrow: but I will see you again, and tyour heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. 23 And uin that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, wWhatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, xthat your joy may be full. 25 These things have I spoken unto you in ||proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in ||proverbs, but I shall shew you yplainly of the Father. 26 zAt that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27 For athe Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have bbelieved bcthat I came out from God. 28 cdI came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and ego to the Father.
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, fnow speakest thou plainly, and speakest no ||proverb. 30 Now are we sure that gthou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this hwe believe that hithou camest forth from God. 31 Jesus answered them, kDo ye now believe? 32 Behold, lthe hour cometh, yea, is now come, that mye shall be scattered, nevery man to ||ohis own, and shall leave me alone: and pyet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that qin me ye might have peace. In the world rye shall have tribulation: but sbe of good cheer; tI have overcome the world.
