JN 16:1  These things have I spoken to you, that you may not be scandalized.

JN 16:2  They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God.

JN 16:3  And these things will they do to you; because they have not known the Father, nor me.

JN 16:4  But these things I have told you, that when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you of them.

JN 16:5  But I told you not these things from the beginning, because I was with you. And now I go to him that sent me, and none of you asketh me: Whither goest thou?

JN 16:6  But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

JN 16:7  But I tell you the truth: it is expedient to you that I go: for if I go not, the Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

JN 16:8  And when he is come, he will convince the world of sin, and of justice, and of judgment.

JN 16:9  Of sin: because they believed not in me.

JN 16:10  And of justice: because I go to the Father; and you shall see me no longer.

JN 16:11  And of judgment: because the prince of this world is already judged.

JN 16:12  I have yet many things to say to you: but you cannot bear them now.

JN 16:13  But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will teach you all truth. For he shall not speak of himself; but what things soever he shall hear, he shall speak; and the things that are to come, he shall shew you.

JN 16:14  He shall glorify me; because he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it to you.

JN 16:15  All things whatsoever the Father hath, are mine. Therefore I said, that he shall receive of mine, and shew it to you.

JN 16:16  A little while, and now you shall not see me; and again a little while, and you shall see me: because I go to the Father.

JN 16:17  Then some of the disciples said one to another: What is this that he saith to us: A little while, and you shall not see me; and again a little while, and you shall see me, and, because I go to the Father?

JN 16:18  They said therefore: What is this that he saith, A little while? we know not what he speaketh.

JN 16:19  And Jesus knew that they had a mind to ask him; and he said to them: Of this do you inquire among yourselves, because I said: A little while, and you shall not see me; and again a little while, and you shall see me?

JN 16:20  Amen, amen I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

JN 16:21  A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

JN 16:22  So also you now indeed have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice; and your joy no man shall take from you.

JN 16:23  And in that day you shall not ask me any thing. Amen, amen I say to you: if you ask the Father any thing in my name, he will give it you.

JN 16:24  Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name. Ask, and you shall receive; that your joy may be full.

JN 16:25  These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. The hour cometh, when I will no more speak to you in proverbs, but will shew you plainly of the Father.

JN 16:26  In that day you shall ask in my name; and I say not to you, that I will ask the Father for you:

JN 16:27  For the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

JN 16:28  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again I leave the world, and I go to the Father.

JN 16:29  His disciples say to him: Behold, now thou speakest plainly, and speakest no proverb.

JN 16:30  Now we know that thou knowest all things, and thou needest not that any man should ask thee. By this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

JN 16:31  Jesus answered them: Do you now believe?

JN 16:32  Behold, the hour cometh, and it is now come, that you 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.

JN 16:33  These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world.
