View In My Bible
16 A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, [because I go away to the Father]. 17 [Some] of his disciples therefore said to one another, What is this he says to us, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me, and, Because I go away to the Father? 18 They said therefore, What is this which he says [of] the little while? We do not know [of] what he speaks. 19 Jesus knew therefore that they desired to demand a of him, and said to them, Do ye inquire of this among yourselves that I said, A little while and ye do not behold me; and again a little while and ye shall see me? 20 Verily, verily, I say to you, that ye shall weep and lament, ye, but the world shall rejoice; and ye b will be grieved, but your grief shall be turned to joy. 21 A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief because her hour has come; but when the child c is born, she no longer remembers the trouble, on account of the joy that a man has been born into the world. 22 And ye now therefore have grief; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you. 23 And in that day ye shall demand nothing of me: verily, verily, I say to you, Whatsoever ye shall ask d the Father in my name, he will give you. e 24 Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. f 25 These things I have spoken to you in allegories; the hour is coming that I will no longer speak to you in allegories, but will declare g to you openly concerning the Father. 26 In that day ye shall ask in my name; and I say not to you that I will demand h of the Father for you, 27 for the Father himself has affection for you, because ye have had affection i for me, and have believed that I came out from j God. 28 I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I leave the world and go to the Father. 29 His disciples say to him, Lo, now thou speakest openly and utterest no allegory. 30 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and hast not need that any one should demand of thee. By this we believe that thou art come from God. 31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32 Behold, [the] hour is coming, and has come, that ye shall be scattered, each to his own, and shall leave me alone; and [yet] I am not alone, for the Father is with me. 33 These things have I spoken to you that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye have tribulation; but be of good courage: I have overcome the world.
