24Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive,1 and your joy will be complete.225"Though I have been speaking figuratively,3 a time is coming4 when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.26In that day you will ask in my name.5 I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.27No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me6 and have believed that I came from God.728I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."829
Then Jesus' disciples said, "Now you are speaking clearly and without figures of speech.930
Now we can see that you know all things and that you do not even need to have anyone ask you questions. This makes us believe10 that you came from God."1131"You believe at last!"a Jesus answered.
32"But a time is coming,12 and has come, when you will be scattered,13 each to his own home. You will leave me all alone.14 Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.1533"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.16 In this world you will have trouble.17 But take heart! I have overcome18 the world."
