John 16
New Living Translation
16"I have told you these things so that you won't abandon your faith.G5023G2980G5213G3363G4624G3363G4624 2For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.G4160G5209G656G235G5610G2064G2443G3956G615G5209G1380G4374G2316G2999 3This is because they have never known the Father or me.G2532G5023G4160G5213G3754G1097G3756G1097G3962G3761G1691 4Yes, I'm telling you these things now, so that when they happen, you will remember my warning. I didn't tell you earlier because I was going to be with you for a while longer.G235G5023G2980G5213G2443G3752G5610G2064G3421G3754G1473G2036G5213G846G1161G5023G2036G3756G5213G1537G746G3754G2252G3326G5216

The Work of the Holy Spirit

5"But now I am going away to the One who sent me, and not one of you is asking where I am going.G1161G3568G5217G4314G3992G3165G2532G3762G1537G5216G2065G3165G4226G5217 6Instead, you grieve because of what I've told you.G235G3754G2980G5023G5213G3077G4137G5216G2588 7But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don't, the Advocate won't come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you.G235G1473G3004G5213G225G4851G5213G2443G1473G565G1063G3362G565G3362G565G3875G2064G3756G2064G4314G5209G1161G1437G4198G3992G846G4314G5209 8And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God's righteousness, and of the coming judgment.G2532G2064G1565G1651G2889G4012G266G2532G4012G1343G2532G4012G2920 9The world's sin is that it refuses to believe in me.G4012G266G3303G3754G4100G3756G1519G1691 10Righteousness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more.G4012G1161G1343G3754G5217G4314G3450G3962G2532G2334G3165G3765 11Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged.G4012G1161G2920G3754G758G5127G2889G2919 12"There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can't bear it now.G2192G2089G4183G3004G5213G235G3756G1410G941G737 13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.G1161G3752G1565G4151G225G2064G3594G5209G1519G3956G225G1063G2980G3756G2980G575G1438G235G3745G302G191G2980G2532G312G5213G2064 14He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me.G1565G1392G1691G3754G2983G1537G1699G2532G312G5213 15All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, `The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me.'G3956G3745G3962G2192G2076G1699G5124G1223G2036G3754G2983G1537G1699G2532G312G5213

Sadness Will Be Turned to Joy

16"In a little while you won't see me anymore. But a little while after that, you will see me again."G3397G2532G2334G3756G2334G3165G2532G3825G3397G2532G3700G3165G3754G1473G5217G4314G3962 17Some of the disciples asked each other, "What does he mean when he says, `In a little while you won't see me, but then you will see me,' and `I am going to the Father'?G3767G2036G1537G846G3101G4314G240G5101G2076G5124G3739G3004G2254G3397G2532G2334G3756G2334G3165G2532G3825G3397G2532G3700G3165G2532G3754G1473G5217G4314G3962 18And what does he mean by `a little while'? We don't understand."G3004G3767G5101G2076G5124G3739G3004G3397G3756G1492G1492G5101G2980 19Jesus realized they wanted to ask him about it, so he said, "Are you asking yourselves what I meant? I said in a little while you won't see me, but a little while after that you will see me again.G3767G2424G1097G3754G2309G2065G846G2532G2036G846G2212G3326G240G4012G5127G3754G2036G3397G2532G2334G3756G2334G3165G2532G3825G3397G2532G3700G3165 20I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn over what is going to happen to me, but the world will rejoice. You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy.G281G281G3004G5213G3754G5210G2799G2532G2354G1161G2889G5463G1161G5210G3076G235G5216G3077G1096G1519G5479 21It will be like a woman suffering the pains of labor. When her child is born, her anguish gives way to joy because she has brought a new baby into the world.G1135G3752G5088G2192G3077G3754G846G5610G2064G1161G3752G1080G3813G3421G3765G2347G1223G5479G3754G444G1080G1519G2889 22So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy.G2532G5210G3303G3568G3767G2192G3077G1161G3700G5209G3825G2532G5216G2588G5463G2532G5216G5479G3762G142G575G5216 23At that time you won't need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name.G2532G1722G1565G2250G3756G2065G1691G3762G281G281G3004G5213G3754G3745G302G154G3962G1722G3450G3686G1325G5213 24You haven't done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.G2193G737G154G3756G3762G1722G3450G3686G154G2532G2983G2443G5216G5479G5600G4137 25"I have spoken of these matters in figures of speech, but soon I will stop speaking figuratively and will tell you plainly all about the Father.G5023G2980G5213G1722G3942G235G5610G2064G3753G2980G3765G2980G5213G1722G3942G235G312G5213G3954G4012G3962 26Then you will ask in my name. I'm not saying I will ask the Father on your behalf,G1722G1565G2250G154G1722G3450G3686G2532G3004G3756G5213G3754G1473G2065G3962G4012G5216 27for the Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God.G1063G3962G846G5368G5209G3754G5210G5368G1691G2532G4100G3754G1473G1831G3844G2316 28Yes, I came from the Father into the world, and now I will leave the world and return to the Father."G1831G3844G3962G2532G2064G1519G2889G3825G863G2889G2532G4198G4314G3962 29Then his disciples said, "At last you are speaking plainly and not figuratively.G846G3101G3004G846G2396G3568G2980G3954G2532G3004G3762G3942 30Now we understand that you know everything, and there's no need to question you. From this we believe that you came from God."G3568G1492G3754G1492G3956G2532G5532G3756G2192G2443G5100G2065G4571G1722G5129G4100G3754G1831G575G2316 31Jesus asked, "Do you finally believe?G2424G611G846G4100G737G4100 32But the time is coming—indeed it's here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me.G2400G5610G2064G2532G2064G3568G2064G2443G4650G1538G1519G2398G2532G863G1691G3441G2532G1510G3756G3441G3754G3962G2076G3326G1700 33I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."G5023G2980G5213G2443G1722G1698G2192G1515G1722G2889G2192G2192G2347G235G2293G1473G3528G2889
