1 "I have told you these things so that you won't be caught by surprise. 1 "All this I have told you so that you will not go astray.
2 They will ban you from the synagogue; in fact, the time will come when anyone who kills you will think he is serving God! 2 They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God.
3 They will do these things because they have understood neither the Father nor me. 3 They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.
4 But I have told you this, so that when the time comes for it to happen, you will remember that I told you. I didn't tell you this at first, because I was with you. 4 I have told you this, so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you. I did not tell you this at first because I was with you.
5 But now I am going to the One who sent me. "Not one of you is asking me, `Where are you going?' 5 "Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'
6 Instead, because I have said these things to you, you are overcome with grief. 6 Because I have said these things, you are filled with grief.
7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I don't go away, the comforting Counselor will not come to you. However, if I do go, I will send him to you. 7 But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
8 "When he comes, he will show that the world is wrong about sin, about righteousness and about judgment -- 8 When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:
9 about sin, in that people don't put their trust in me; 9 in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me;
10 about righteousness, in that I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; 10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;
11 about judgment, in that the ruler of this world has been judged. 11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
12 "I still have many things to tell you, but you can't bear them now. 12 "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.
13 However, when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own initiative but will say only what he hears. He will also announce to you the events of the future. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
14 He will glorify me, because he will receive from what is mine and announce it to you. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.
15 Everything the Father has is mine; this is why I said that he receives from what is mine and will announce it to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
16 "In a little while, you will see me no more; then, a little while later, you will see me." 16 "In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me."
17 At this, some of the talmidim said to one another, "What is this that he's telling us, `In a little while, you won't see me; then, a little while later, you will see me'? and, `I am going to the Father'?" 17 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,' and 'Because I am going to the Father'?"
18 They went on saying, "What is this `little while'? We don't understand what he's talking about." 18 They kept asking, "What does he mean by 'a little while'? We don't understand what he is saying."
19 Yeshua knew that they wanted to ask him, so he said to them, "Are you asking each other what I meant by saying, `In a little while, you won't see me; and then, a little while later, you will see me'? 19 Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, "Are you asking one another what I meant when I said, 'In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me'?
20 Yes, it's true. I tell you that you will sob and mourn, and the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. 20 I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.
21 When a woman is giving birth, she is in pain; because her time has come. But when the baby is born, she forgets her suffering out of joy that a child has come into the world. 21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.
22 So you do indeed feel grief now, but I am going to see you again. Then your hearts will be full of joy, and no one will take your joy away from you. 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
23 "When that day comes, you won't ask anything of me! Yes, indeed! I tell you that whatever you ask from the Father, he will give you in my name. 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
24 Till now you haven't asked for anything in my name. Keep asking, and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
25 "I have said these things to you with the help of illustrations; however, a time is coming when I will no longer speak indirectly but will talk about the Father in plain language. 25 "Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.
26 When that day comes, you will ask in my name. I am not telling you that I will pray to the Father on your behalf, 26 In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.
27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. 27 No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.
28 "I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and returning to the Father." 28 I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."
29 The talmidim said to him, "Look, you're talking plainly right now, you're not speaking indirectly at all. 29 Then Jesus' disciples said, "Now you are speaking clearly and without figures of speech.
30 Now we know that you know everything, and that you don't need to have people put their questions into words. This makes us believe that you came from God." 30 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 believe that you came from God."
31 Yeshua answered, "Now you do believe. 31 "You believe at last!" Jesus answered.
32 But a time is coming -- indeed it has come already -- when you will be scattered, each one looking out for himself; and you will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone; because the Father is with me. 32 "But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
33 "I have said these things to you so that, united with me, you may have shalom. In the world, you have tsuris. But be brave! I have conquered the world!" 33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
