8When he comes, he will convict the world of guilta in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:9in regard to sin,1 because men do not believe in me;10in regard to righteousness,2 because I am going to the Father,3 where you can see me no longer;11and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world4 now stands condemned.12"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.513But when he, the Spirit of truth,6 comes, he will guide you into all truth.7 He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.15All that belongs to the Father is mine.8 That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.16"In a little while9 you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me."10
Some of his disciples said to one another, "What does he mean by saying, 'In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,'11 and 'Because I am going to the Father'?"1218
They kept asking, "What does he mean by 'a little while'? We don't understand what he is saying."
