John 16

These things have I spoken unto you, that you should not be offended.

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues; yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God (Elohim) service.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor Me.

4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

5 But now I go My way to Him that sent Me; and none of you asketh Me, ‘Whither goest You?’

6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

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.

8 And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment;

9 Of sin, because they believe not on Me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to My Father, and you see Me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now.

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.

14 He shall glorify Me; for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.

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 A little while, and you shall not see Me; and again, a little while, and you shall see Me, because I go to the Father.”

17 Then said some of His disciples among themselves, “What is this that He saith unto 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?’”

18 They said therefore, “What is this that He saith, ‘A little while?’ we cannot tell what He saith.

19 Now YHWH knew that they were desirous to ask Him, and said unto them, “Do you enquire among yourselves of that I said, ‘A little while, and you shall not see Me; and again, a little while, and you shall see Me?’

20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

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.

22 And you now therefore have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

23 And in that day you shall ask Me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever you shall ask the Father in My name, He will give it you.

24 Hitherto have you asked nothing in My name; ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.

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.

26 At that day you shall ask in My name; and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you;

27 For the Father Himself loveth you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came out from God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).

28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world; again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.”

29 His disciples said unto Him, “Behold, now speakest You plainly, and speakest no proverb.

30 Now are we sure that You knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask You; by this we believe that You camest forth from God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH))”

31 YHWH answered them, “Do you now believe?

32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, 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.

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
