John 16

These things have I said to you, that ye may not be stumbled. For they will eject you from their synagogues; and the hour will come, that whoever shall kill you, will suppose that he presenteth an offering to God. And these things will they do, because they have not known either my Father, or me. These things have I spoken to you, that when the time of them cometh, ye may recollect, that I told you of them. And I did not tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you. But now, I am going to Him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? And because I have told you these things, sorrow hath come and hath filled your hearts. But I tell you the truth, that it is profitable for you that I go away; for, if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he is come, he will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. Of sin because they believe not in me: 10 and of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more: 11 and of Judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 Moreover, I have much to say to you: but ye cannot comprehend it now. 13 But when the Spirit of truth shall come, he will lead you into all the truth. For he will not speak from his own mind; but whatever he heareth, that will he speak: and he will make known to you things to come. 14 He will glorify me; because he will receive of what is mine, and will show it to you. 15 Whatever the Father hath, is mine: therefore said I to you that he will receive of what is mine, and will show it to you. 16 A little while, and ye will not see me; and again a little while, and ye will see me; because I go to the Father. 17 And his disciples said one to another: What is this that he saith to us, A little while, and ye will not see me and again a little while, and ye will see me, because I go to my Father? 18 And they said: What is this little while, of which he speaketh? We know not what he saith. 19 And Jesus knew, that they desired to ask him; and he said to them: Are ye debating with each other, of what I said to you, A little while, and ye will not see me, and again a little while, and ye will see me? 20 Verily, verily, I say to you, That ye will weep and lament: And the world will rejoice, while to you will be sorrow. But your sorrow will be turned to joy. 21 A woman, in bringing forth, hath sorrow, for the day of her travail hath come: but when she hath brought forth a son, she remembereth not her anguish, because of the joy that a human being is born into the world. 22 Ye also now have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will deprive you of your joy. 23 And in that day ye will ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say to you, That whatsoever ye shall ask of my Father in my name, he will give to you. 24 Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and ye will receive; that your joy may be complete. 25 These things have I spoken to you in allegories: but the hour will come, when I shall not speak to you in allegories, but I will speak to you plainly of the Father. 26 In that day ye will ask in my name; and I do not say to you, that I will pray to the Father for you; 27 for the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I proceeded from the presence of the Father. 28 I proceeded forth from before the Father, and came into the world; and again I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29 His disciples say to him: Lo, now thou speakest plainly, and thou utterest no allegory. 30 Now know we, that thou knowest every thing ; and thou hast no need, that any one should ask thee: by this we believe, that thou didst proceed from God. 31 Jesus said to them: Do ye believe? 32 Behold, the hour cometh, and hath now come, when ye will be dispersed, each to his place; and ye will leave me alone. But I am not alone, for the Father is with me. 33 These things have I said to you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye will have trouble: but, take courage, I have vanquished the world.
