John 14 DBY

1 Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe on God, believe also on me.
2 In my Father's house there are many abodes; were it not so, I had told you: for I go to prepare you a place;
3 and if I go and shall prepare you a place, I am coming again and shall receive you to myself, that where I am ye also may be.
4 And ye know where I go, and ye know the way.
5 Thomas says to him, Lord, we know not where thou goest, and how can we know a the way?

              References for John 14:16

                • í 14:16 - In the latter chapters of John's Gospel, in order to maintain the distinction, frequently important, between erotao and aiteo, the first is translated 'demand' [except John 14.16 (beg)], the second 'ask.' There are times when they may be used indiscriminately, at other times each has a sense peculiar to itself: erotao expressing a familiar request to a person where intimacy exists [or equality, either assumed or actual]; aiteo, the request rather for something by an inferior to his superior. The disciples employ both of these words in their relations with Jesus, but only aiteo with relation to the Father. In his relations with his Father, Jesus employs erotao but not aiteo. Martha uses aiteo in ch. 11.22. For the difference between the two, compare John 16.23. In ch. 14.16 the word is erotao; in vers. 13 and 14 aiteo.
                • î 14:16 - One who carries on the cause of any one and helps him. This Christ did on earth; this (1John 2.1) he does now in heaven, and the Holy Spirit on earth 'manages our cause, our affairs, for us.' If 'solicitor' were not too common, it just answers the sense.
                  17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see him nor know him; but ye know him, for he abides with you, and shall be in you.
                  18 I will not leave you orphans, I am coming to you.
                  19 Yet a little and the world sees me no longer; but ye see me; because I live ye also shall live.
                  20 In that day ye shall know f that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

                      21 He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me; but he that loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will manifest myself to him.
