Chapter 16John

16

1 These things have I spoken to you, that ye be not stumbled. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogue: yea, the hour cometh, that whoever killeth you shall think that he offereth service to :God. 3 And these things they will do, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But these have I spoken to you, that when their :hour is come, ye may remember them, that I told you. And these I said not to you from the beginning, because I was with you. 5 But now I go unto him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have spoken these things to you, :sorrow hath filled your :heart. 7 But I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I go, I will send him unto you. 8 And HE, coming, will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin indeed, because they believe not unto me; 10 and of righteousness, because I go unto the Father, and ye behold me no more; 11 and of judgment, because the prince of this :world hath been judged. 12 I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear it now. 13 But when that one comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he shall guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but what things soever he heareth, these shall he speak: and he shall declare to you the things to come. 14 HE shall glorify me: for he shall take of :mine, and shall declare it to you. 15 All things whatever the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he taketh of :mine, and shall declare it to you. 16 A little while, and ye behold me no more; and again a little, and ye shall see me. 17 Some of his :disciples therefore said one unto another, What is this that he saith to us, A little, and ye behold me not; and again a little, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go unto the Father? 18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little? We know not what he saith.

19 Jesus perceived that they wished to ask him, and said to them, Do ye inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said, A little, and ye behold me not, and again a little and ye shall see me? 20 Amen, Amen, I say unto you that YE shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: YE shall be sorrowful, but your :sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21 The woman when she giveth birth hath sorrow, because her :hour is come: but when she delivereth the child, she remembereth no more the tribulation, for the joy that a man is born into the world. 22 And YE therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your :heart shall rejoice, and your :joy no one shall take away from you. 23 And in that :day ye shall ask me nothing. Amen, Amen, I say unto you, If ye shall ask anything of the Father, he will give you in my :name. 24 Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my :name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your :joy be fulfilled. 25 These things have I spoken to you in proverbs: an hour cometh, when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs, but shall report to you openly of the Father. 26 In that :day ye shall ask in my :name: and I say not unto you, that I will ask the Father for you; 27 for the Father himself loveth you, because YE have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from the Father. 28 I came out from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go unto the Father. 29 His :disciples say, Behold, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 30 Now know we that thou knowest all things, and needest not that anyone should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. 31 Jesus answered them, Believe ye now? 32 Lo, an hour cometh, even is come, that ye shall be scattered, every one to his :own, and shall leave me alone: and I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things have I spoken to you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
