John 16

CHAPTER 16

The Coming Persecution

These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be caused to stumble. From out of the synagogue they shall put you; and there comes the hour that every one killing you think [2service 1he offers] to God. And these things they shall do, for they know not the father, nor me. But these things I have spoken to you, that whenever [3should come 1the 2hour], you should remember them, that I spoke to you. But these things [3to you 4at 5the beginning 2not 1I said], for [2with 3you 1I was].

The Comforter

But now I go away to the one having sent me, and not one of you asks me, Where do you go? But because these things I have spoken to you, distress has filled your heart. But I [3the 4truth 1speak 2to you]; it is advantageous to you that I go forth. For if I should not go forth, the comforter shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And having come, that one will reprove the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment. Concerning sin then, that they believe not in me. 10 [2concerning 3righteousness 1And], that to my father I go away, and no longer you view me. 11 And concerning judgment, for the ruler of this world has been judged. 12 Still many things I have to say to you, but you are not able to bear them just now. 13 But whenever that one should come, the spirit of the truth, he will guide you into all the truth; [3not 1for 2he shall] speak from himself; but as much as whatever he should hear, he shall speak; and the things coming he shall announce to you. 14 That one [2me 1will glorify]; for of mine he shall take, and shall announce to you. 15 All as much as [3has 1the 2father] is mine. On account of this I said that, Of mine he takes, and shall announce to you. 16 A little while, and you shall not view me; and again a little while and you shall see me, for I go away to the father. 17 Said then some of his disciples to one another, What is this which he says to us, A little while, and you will not see me; and again a little while, and you shall see me; and, For I go away to the father? 18 They said then, [3this 1What 2is] which he says, the, Little while? We do not know what he speaks. 19 [2knew 3then 1Jesus] that they wanted to ask him, and he said to them, Concerning this do you seek with one another, that I said, A little while, and you shall not view me; and again a little while, and you shall view me? 20 Amen, amen, I say to you that, [2will weep 3and 4wail 1You], but the world will rejoice; and you will be distressed, but your distress [2for 3joy 1will become]. 21 The woman whenever she should give birth [2distress 1has], for [3came 2hour 1her]; but whenever she should bear the child, no longer does she remember the affliction, on account of the joy, that [2was born 1a man] into the world. 22 And you then [4distress 1indeed 2now 3have]; but again I shall see you, and [3shall rejoice 1your 2heart], and your joy no one shall take from you. 23 And in that day [2me 1you shall ask] nothing. Amen, amen, I say to you that, Whatever as much as you should ask the father in my name, he will give to you. 24 Until now you asked not anything in my name; ask and you shall receive, that your joy should be filled! 25 These things in proverbs I have spoken to you; comes the hour when no longer in proverbs shall I speak to you, but [6in an open manner 3concerning 4the 5father 1I will announce 2to you]. 26 In that day [2in 3my name 1you shall ask]; and I say not to you that I will ask the father concerning you; 27 [4himself 1for 2the 3father] is fond of you, for you are fond of me, and you have believed that I [2from 3God 1have come forth];

Be of Good Courage

28 I came forth from the father, and I have come into the world; again I leave the world, and I go to the father. 29 [2say 3to him 1His disciples], See, now in an open manner you speak, and [2proverb 1not one] do you say! 30 Now we know that you know all things, and [2no 3need 1you have] that anyone should ask you. In this we believe that [2from 3God 1you came forth]. 31 [2responded 3to them 1Jesus], Now you believe? 32 Behold, there comes an hour, and now has come, that you will be dispersed each unto his own place, and [2me 3alone 1you shall leave]; and I am not alone, for the father [2with 3me 1is]. 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me [2peace 1you should have]. In the world [2tribulation 1you shall have]; but be of courage! I have overcome the world.
