John 14:15-30 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
15 If you have love for me, you will keep my laws. 16 And I will make prayer to the Father and he will give you another Helper to be with you for ever, 17 Even the Spirit of true knowledge. That Spirit the world is not able to take to its heart because it sees him not and has no knowledge of him: but you have knowledge of him, because he is ever with you and will be in you. 18 I will not let you be without a friend: I am coming to you. 19 A little time longer, and the world will see me no more; but you will see me; and you will be living because I am living. 20 At that time it will be clear to you that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I in you. 21 He who has my laws and keeps them, he it is who has love for me: and he who has love for me will be loved by my Father, and I will have love for him and will let myself be seen clearly by him. 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, How is it that you will let yourself be seen clearly by us and not by the world? 23 Jesus said to him in answer, If anyone has love for me, he will keep my words: and he will be dear to my Father; and we will come to him and make our living-place with him. 24 He who has no love for me does not keep my words; and the word which you are hearing is not my word but the Father's who sent me. 25 I have said all this to you while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will be your teacher in all things and will put you in mind of everything I have said to you. 27 May peace be with you; my peace I give to you: I give it not as the world gives. Let not your heart be troubled; let it be without fear. 28 Keep in mind how I said to you, I go away and come to you again. If you had love for me you would be glad, because I am going to the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have given you word of it before it comes, so that, when it comes, you may have faith. 30 After this I will not say much to you, because the ruler of this world comes: and he has no power over me;
