These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should
not be offended.
16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea,
the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will
think that he doeth God service.
16:3 And these things will they do unto you, because
they have not known the Father, nor me.
16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the
time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of
them. And these things I said not unto you at the
beginning, because I was with you.
16:5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and
none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
16:6 But because I have said these things unto you,
sorrow hath filled your heart.
16:7 Nevertheless 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
depart, I will send him unto you.
16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world
of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father,
and ye see me no more;
16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world
16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye
cannot bear them now.
16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,
he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not
speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that
shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of
mine, and shall shew it unto you.
16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine:
therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and
shall shew it unto you.
16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and
again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because
I go to the Father.
16:17 Then said some of his disciples among
themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A
little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a
little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go
to the Father?
16:18 They said therefore, What is this that he
saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
16:19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask
him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among
yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye
shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye
shall see me?
16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall
weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye
shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned
16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow,
because her hour is come: but as soon as she is
delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the
anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will
see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and
your joy no man taketh from you.
16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall
ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:
ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be
16:25 These things have I spoken unto you in
proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more
speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you
plainly of the Father.
16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say
not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
16:27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye
have loved me, and have believed that I came out
16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into
the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the
16:29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest
thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things,
and needest not that any man should ask thee: by
this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
16:31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
16:32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come,
that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own,
and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone,
because the Father is with me.
16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in
me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have
tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome
