    Section XLVII.

    [1] 3248

    3248 John xvi. 16.

    A little while, and ye shall not behold me; and a little while again, and ye shall [2] behold me; because I go to the Father3249

    3249 John xvi. 17.

    His disciples therefore said one to another, What is this that he hath said unto us, A little while, and ye shall not behold me; and a little while again, and ye shall behold me:  and, I go to my [3] Father3250

    3250 John xvi. 18.

    And they said, What is this little while that he hath said?  We know not [4] what he speaketh.  3251

    3251 John xvi. 19.

    And Jesus perceived that they were seeking to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said unto you, A little while, and ye behold me not, and a little while again, and ye shall [5] behold me?  3252

    3252 John xvi. 20.

    Verily, verily,3253

    3253 Not quite the usual formula, there being here no article.

    I say unto you, that ye shall weep and grieve, but the world shall rejoice:  and ye shall be sorrowful, but your grief shall turn3254

    3254 The Arabic might also be rendered be turned, but the Syriac is intransitive.

    to joy.

    [6] 3255

    3255 John xvi. 21.

    For, a woman when the time is come for her that she should bring forth, the arrival of the day of her bringing forth distresseth her:  but whenever she hath brought forth a son, she remembereth not her distress, for joy at the birth of a man into the [7] world3256

    3256 John xvi. 22.

    And ye now also grieve:  but I shall see you, and your hearts shall rejoice, [8] [Arabic, p. 178] and your joy no man taketh from you.  3257

    3257 John xvi. 23.

    And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.  And verily, verily,3258

    3258 Not quite the usual formula, there being here no article (cf. also § 47, 5).

    I say unto you, All that ye ask my Father in my name, he will give you.  3259

    3259 John xvi. 24.

    Hitherto ye have asked nothing [9] in my name:  ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be complete.

    [10] 3260

    3260 John xvi. 25.

    I have spoken unto you now in ænigmas:3261

    3261 Not the usual word for proverb or parable (cf. Syriac versions).

      but there will come an hour when3262

    3262 So Vat. ms. and Peshitta.  The Borg. ms., followed by Ciasca, has and a time when.

    I shall not speak to you in ænigmas,3263

    3263 Not the usual word for proverb or parable (cf. Syriac versions).

    but shall reveal unto you the Father plainly, [11] in that day when3264

    3264 cf. Peshitta.

    ye shall ask in my name:  3265

    3265 John xvi. 26.

    and I say not unto you, that I shall [12] entreat the Father for you; 3266

    3266 John xvi. 27.

    for the Father loveth you, because ye have loved me, [13] and have believed that I came forth from my Father3267

    3267 John xvi. 28.

    I came forth from my Father, and came into the world:  and I leave the world, and go unto my Father.  [14] 3268

    3268 John xvi. 29.

    His disciples said unto him, Lo, thy speech is now plain, and thou hast not said one [15] thing in an ænigma.  3269

    3269 John xvi. 30.

    Now, lo, we know that thou knowest everything, and needest not that any man should ask thee:  and by this we believe that thou camest forth [16, 17] from God3270

    3270 John xvi. 31.

    Jesus said unto them, Believe that an hour cometh, 3271

    3271 John xvi. 32.

    and lo, it hath come, and ye shall be scattered, every one of you to his place, and shall leave me [18] alone:  and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  3272

    3272 John xvi. 33.

    This have I said unto you, that in me ye may have peace.  And in the world trouble shall overtake you:  but be of good courage; for I have overcome the world.

    [19] 3273

    3273 John xvii. 1.

    This said Jesus, and lifted up his eyes unto heaven, and said, My Father, the hour [20] is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee:  3274

    3274 John xvii. 2.

    as thou gavest him authority [21] over all flesh, that all that thou hast given him, he might give them3275

    3275 Lit. it or him.

    eternal life3276

    3276 John xvii. 3.

    And this is eternal life, that they should3277

    3277 In the Borg. ms. the sentence begins with that they might, the preceding clause being omitted.

    know that thou alone art true God, and that he [22] [Arabic, p. 179] whom thou didst send is Jesus the Messiah.3278

    3278 The above is perhaps the most natural rendering of the Arabic; but the latter is really only an awkward word-for-word reproduction of the Peshitta, which means know thee, who alone art the God of truth, and him whom thou didst send, (even) Jesus the Messiah.


    3279 John xvii. 4.

    I glorified thee in the earth, [23] and the work which thou gavest me to do I have accomplished.  3280

    3280 John xvii. 5.

    And now glorify thou me, O Father, beside thee, with that glory which I had with thee [24] before the world was.  3281

    3281 John xvii. 6.

    I made known thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world:  thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept [25, 26] thy word.  3282

    3282 John xvii. 7.

    Now they3283

    3283 So Ciasca’s text.  The Vat. ms. has I, with the Peshitta and probably Sinaitic.

    know that all that thou hast given me is from thee:  3284

    3284 John xvii. 8.

    and the sayings which thou gavest me I have given unto them; and they received them, and knew of a truth that I came forth from thee, and believed that thou didst send me.  [27] 3285

    3285 John xvii. 9.

    And I ask for their sake:  and my asking is not for the world, but for those whom [28] thou hast given me; for they are thine:  3286

    3286 John xvii. 10.

    and all that is mine is thine, and all that is [29] thine is mine:  and I am glorified in them.  3287

    3287 John xvii. 11.

    And now I am not in the world, and they are in the world, and I come to thee.  My3288

    3288 So in Sinaitic.  The Peshitta omits My.

    holy Father, keep them in thy [30] name which thou hast given unto me, that they may be one, as we are.  3289

    3289 John xvii. 12.

    When I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name:  and I kept those whom thou gavest unto me:  and no man of them hath perished, but the son of perdition; that [31] the scripture might be fulfilled.  3290

    3290 John xvii. 13.

    Now I come to thee:  and this I say in the world, [32] that my joy may be complete in them.  3291

    3291 John xvii. 14.

    I have given them thy word; and the world [33] hated them, because they were not of the world, as I was not of the world3292

    3292 John xvii. 15.

    And I ask not this, that thou take them from the world, but that thou keep them from the [34, 35] evil one.  3293

    3293 John xvii. 16.

    They were not of the world, as I was not of the world3294

    3294 John xvii. 17.

    O Father, sanctify [36] them in thy truth:  for thy word is truth3295

    3295 John xvii. 18.

    And as thou didst send me into the world, I [37] [Arabic, p. 180] also send them into the world3296

    3296 John xvii. 19.

    And for their sake I sanctify myself, that they [38] also may be sanctified in the truth3297

    3297 John xvii. 20.

    Neither for these alone do I ask, but for [39] the sake of them that believe in me through their word; 3298

    3298 John xvii. 21.

    that they may be all one; as thou art in me, and I in thee, and so they also shall be one in us:  that the world [40] may believe that thou didst send me.  3299

    3299 John xvii. 22.

    And the glory which thou hast given unto [41] me I have given unto them; 3300

    3300 John xvii. 23.

    that they may be one, as we are one; I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfect into3301

    3301 Vat. ms. has as.

    one; and that the world may know that [42] thou didst send me, and that I3302

    3302 cf. Peshitta, as pointed in the editions.

    loved them, as thou lovedst me.  3303

    3303 John xvii. 24.

    Father, and those whom thou hast given me, I wish that, where I am, they may be with me also; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me:  for thou lovedst me before [43] the foundation3304

    3304 cf. § 17, 17, note.

    of the world3305

    3305 John xvii. 25.

    My righteous Father,3306

    3306 The Arabic as it stands should mean My Father is righteous; but it is simply the ordinary Syriac reading, and is so rendered above.

    and the world knew thee not, [44] but I know thee; and they knew that thou didst send me; and I made known unto them thy name, and will make it known to them; 3307

    3307 John xvii. 26.

    that the love wherewith thou lovedst me may be in them, and I shall3308

    3308 Or perhaps may.

    be in them.
