16:1 These things have I spoken to you, so that you wouldn`t be caused to stumble.
16:3 They will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.
16:4 But I have told you these things, so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them. I didn`t tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you.
16:5 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, `Where are you going?`
16:6 But because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.
16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don`t go away, the Counselor won`t come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
16:8 When he has come, he will convict the world in respect to sin, and righteousness, and judgment;
16:9 of sin, because they don`t believe in me;
16:10 of righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you see me no more;
16:11 of judgment, because the prince of this world has been judged.
16:12 I have yet many things to tell you, but you can`t bear them now.
16:13 However when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever things he hears, he will speak. He will declare to you the things that are to come.
16:14 He will glorify me, for he will take from what is mine, and will declare it to you.
16:15 All things whatever the Father has are mine; therefore I said that he takes of mine, and will declare it to you.
16:16 A little while, and you will not see me. Again a little while, and you will see me."
16:17 Some of his disciples therefore said to one another, "What is this that he says to us, `A little while, and you won`t see me, and again a little while, and you will see me;` and, `Because I go to the Father?`"
16:18 They said therefore, "What is this that he says, `A little while?` We don`t know what he is saying."
16:19 Therefore Jesus perceived that they wanted to ask him, and he said to them, "Do you inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said, `A little while, and you won`t see me, and again a little while, and you will see me?`
16:20 Most assuredly I tell you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
16:21 A woman, when she is in travail, has sorrow, because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she doesn`t remember the anguish any more, for the joy that a child is born into the world.
16:22 You therefore now have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.
16:23 In that day you will ask me no question. Most assuredly I tell you, whatever you may ask of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.
16:24 Until now, you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.
16:26 In that day you will ask in my name; and I don`t say to you, that I will pray to the Father for you,
16:27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
16:28 I came out from the Father, and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world, and go to the Father."
16:30 Now we know that you know all things, and don`t need for anyone to question you. By this we believe that you came forth from God."
16:31 Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe?
16:33 I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have oppression; but cheer up! I have overcome the world.
