John 14


The Way, the Truth, and the Life

1Let not [3be disturbed 1your 2heart]! Trust in God, and [2in 3me 1trust]! 2In the residence of my father [3abodes 2many 1there are]; but if not, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And whenever I should go and should prepare for you a place, again I will come and take you to myself; that where I am, [3also 1you 2should be]. 4And where I go you know, and the way you know. 5[2says 3to him 1Thomas], O Lord, we know not where you go; and how are we able [2the 3way 1to know]? 6[2says 3to him 1Jesus], I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the father unless through me.

The Father Revealed

7If you had known me, also [2my father 1you would have known]; and from now on you know him and you have seen him. 8[2says 3to him 1Philip], O Lord, show to us the father! and it suffices to us. 9[2says 3to him 1Jesus], So great a time [2with 3you 1I am], and you do not know me, Philip? The one seeing me has seen the father; and how do you say, Show us the father? 10Do you not believe that I am in the father, and the father [2in 3me 1is]? The words which I speak to you, [2from 3myself 1I speak not]; but the father, the one [2in 3me 1abiding], he does the works. 11Trust me! that I am in the father, and the father [2in 3me 1is]. But if not, because of the works themselves believe me! 12Amen, amen, I say to you, The one believing in me, the works which I do, even that one shall do; and greater than these he shall do; for I [2to 3my father 1go]. 13And whatever you should ask in my name, this I shall do, that [3should be glorified 1the 2father] in the son. 14If you should ask anything in my name, I shall do it.

The Promise of The Spirit

15If you should love me, [3commandments 2my 1give heed to]! 16And I will ask the father, and [3another 4comforter 1he shall give 2to you], that he should abide with you into the eon. 17The spirit of truth; whom the world is not able to receive, for it does not contemplate it, nor knows it. But you know it, for [2with 3you 1it abides], and in you it will be. 18I will not leave you orphans; I am coming to you. 19Yet a little while and the world [3me 1no longer 2views], but you view me, for I live, and you shall live. 20In that day you shall know that I am in my father, and you in me, and I in you. 21The one having my commandments, and giving heed to them, that one is the one loving me; and the one loving me shall be loved by my father; and I will love him, and I will reveal myself to him. 22[2says 3to him 1Judas] (not Iscariot), O Lord, what has taken place that to us you are about to reveal yourself, and not to the world? 23Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves me, [2my word 1he will give heed to], and my father will love him, and to him we will come, and [2an abode 3with 4him 1we will make]. 24The one not loving me, [3my words 1does not 2give heed to]; and the word which you hear is not mine, but the [2having sent 3me 1father]. 25These things I have spoken to you, [2with 3you 1abiding]. 26But the comforter, the [2spirit 1holy], whom [3will send 1the 2father] in my name, that one will teach you all things, and will remind you all things which I said to you. 27Peace I leave with you, [2peace 1my] I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not [3be disturbed 1your 2heart], nor be timid! 28You heard that I said to you, I go away, and I come to you. If you loved me, you would have rejoiced that I said, I go to the father, for my father [2greater than 3me 1is]. 29And now I have told it to you before it takes place, that whenever it happens, you should believe. 30No longer [2many things 1will I speak] with you; [5comes 1for 2the one 3of the 4world] -- the ruler; and with me he does not have one thing. 31But that [3should know 1the 2world] that I love the father; and as [3gave charge 4to me 1the 2father], so I do. Arise! we should lead on from here.
