John 16

I have spoken these things to you, that you may not be offended. They will put you out of the synagogues: but the hour is coming, that every one killing you may think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things, because they did not know the Father, nor me. But I have spoken these things to you, that when the hour may come, you may remember them, that I did say them to you. But I said not these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. But now I go to Him that sent me; and no one of you asks me, Whither goest thou? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. But now I tell you the truth; it is profitable to you that I may go away. For if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I may go, I will send Him to you. And having come, He will convict the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment. Concerning sin indeed, because they do not believe on me; and concerning righteousness; 10 because I go to the Father, and you see me no more; 11 and concerning judgment, because the prince of this world has been condemned. 12 I have many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them now. 13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, may come, He will guide you in all truth: for He will not speak from Himself; but so many things as He hears, He will speak: and will proclaim to you the things which are coming. 14 He will glorify me: because He will receive from mine, and proclaim them unto you. 15 And all things whatsoever the Father has are mine: therefore I said, that He takes from mine, and will proclaim them to you. 16 A little while, and ye see me no more; again a little while, and ye shall see me. 17 Then some of His disciples were saying to one another, What is this which He speaks to us, A little while, and you see me no more; and again a little while, and ye shall see me? and that I go to the Father? 18 Then they were speaking, What is this, Little while, of which He speaks? and we know not what He is talking about. 19 Jesus knew that they wished to ask Him, and said to them, You are seeking with one another concerning this, because I said, A little while, and you see me no more, and again a little while, and you shall see me? 20 Truly, truly, I say unto you, that you will weep and mourn, and the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. 21 When a woman may bring forth she has sorrow, because her hour has come: but when the little child may be born, she remembers her suffering no more, for the joy that a man has been born into the world. 22 Therefore you indeed also now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one taketh your joy from you. 23 And in that day you will ask of me nothing. Truly, truly, I say unto you, Whatsoever you may ask the Father, He will give it to you in my name. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, in order that your joy may be full. 25 I have spoken these things unto you in parables; the hour comes, when I shall no longer speak to you in parables, but openly will I proclaim to you concerning the Father. 26 In that clay you shall ask in my name: and I do not say, that I will ask the Father for you; 27 for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved me as a friend, and you have believed that I came out from God. 28 I came out from the Father, and have come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29 His disciples say; Behold, now you are talking openly, and speaking no parable. 30 Now we know that you know all things, and have no need that any one may ask you: in this we believe that you came out from God. 31 Jesus responded to them, Do you now believe? 32 Behold, the hour cometh, and is already come, that you must be scattered abroad, each one to his own place, and leave me alone: I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 I have spoken these things to you, in order that you may have peace in me. In the world you have tribulation: but take courage; I have conquered the world.
