23"7In that day8you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, 9if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you.24"10Untilnow you have asked for nothing in My name ; ask and you will receive, so that your 11joy may be madefull.25"Thesethings I have spoken to you in c12figurativelanguage ; 13an hour is comingwhen I will nolongerspeak to you in dfigurativelanguage, but will tell you plainly of the Father.26"14In that day15you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will request of the Father on your behalf ;27for 16the FatherHimselfloves you, because you have loved Me and 17have believed that 18I cameforth from the Father.28"19I cameforth from the Father and have come into the world ; I am leaving the worldagain and 20going to the Father."29
