  • 1 “These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.
  • 2 They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
  • 3 And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
  • 4 But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
  • 5 “But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’
  • 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
  • 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; because, if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
  • 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
  • 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
  • 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
  • 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
  • 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
  • 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; because, He will not speak on from Himself, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will show you things to come.
  • 14 He will glorify Me, because He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
  • 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
  • 16 “A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.”
  • 17 Then some of His disciples said among themselves, “What is this that He says to us, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?”
  • 18 They said therefore, “What is this that He says, ‘A little while’? We do not know what He is saying.”
  • 19 Now Jesus knew that they desired to ask Him, and He said to them, “Are you inquiring among yourselves about what I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’?
  • 20 Truly, truly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
  • 21 A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
  • 22 Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
  • 23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
  • 24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
  • 25 “These things I have spoken to you in proverbs; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in proverbs, but I will tell you plainly about the Father.
  • 26 In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will pray the Father for you;
  • 27 because the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
  • 28 I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.”
  • 29 His disciples said to Him, “See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no proverb!
  • 30 Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God.”
  • 31 Jesus replied to them, “Do you now believe?
  • 32 Behold, the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
  • 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
