16:1 These things have I spoken to you that you may not be offended.
2 They will put you out of the synagogues: indeed, the hour comes that every one that kills you will think that he offers service to God.
3 And these things will they do because they have not known the Father nor me.
4 But these things I have spoken to you that when the hour comes you may remember them, that I told you. And these things I told you not from the beginning, because I was with you.
5 But now I go to him that sent me, and no one of you asks me: Whither goest thou?
6 And yet, because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.
7 But I tell you the truth, it is profitable for you that I go away. For if I go not away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
8 And when he comes, he will convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.
9 Of sin indeed, because they believe not on me;
10 but of righteousness, because I go to the Father and you see me no more;
11 but of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now;
13 but when he has come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you in all the truth; for he shall not speak of himself, but whatever he hears he shall speak, and he shall announce to you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me, for he shall take of mine and announce it to you.
15 All things whatever the Father has are mine: therefore I said that he takes of mine and announces to you.
16 A little while, and you see me no more, and again a little while, and you shall see me.
17 Some of his disciples therefore said one to another: What is this that he says to us: A little while, and you see me not, and again a little while, and you shall see me? and that 1 go to the Father?
18 They said therefore: This, what is it that he says, The little while? We know not what he says.
19 Jesus knew that they desired to ask him, and he said to them: Concerning this do you inquire among yourselves because I said: A little while, and you see me not, and again a little while, and you shall see me?
20 Verily, verily, I say to you, that you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall become joy.
21 The wife, when she is in labor, has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she has brought forth the child, she no longer remembers the affliction for joy that a man has been born into the world.
22 And you therefore now indeed have sorrow; but I shall see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you.
23 And in that day, of me you shall ask nothing. Verily, verily, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.
24 Till now you have asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be fulfilled.
25 These things I have spoken to you in parables: the hour comes when I will no longer speak to you in parables, but will tell you plainly concerning the Father.
26 In that day you shall ask in my name, and 1 say not to you that I will beseech the Father for you;
27 for 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 say: Behold, now thou speakest plainly, and utterest no parable.
30 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and hast no need that any one should ask thee: in this we believe that thou earnest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them: Do you now believe?
32 Behold, the hour comes, and has come, that you shall be scattered each one to his own and leave me alone; and yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken to you that in me you may have peace. In the world you have affliction; but take courage, I have overcome the world.
