The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
31 When he had left, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is seen for who he is, and God seen for who he is in him. The moment God is seen in him, 31 When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him.
32 God's glory will be on display. In glorifying him, he himself is glorified - glory all around! 32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33 "Children, I am with you for only a short time longer. You are going to look high and low for me. But just as I told the Jews, I'm telling you: 'Where I go, you are not able to come.' 33 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34 "Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. 34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
35 This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples - when they see the love you have for each other." 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
36 Simon Peter asked, "Master, just where are you going?" Jesus answered, "You can't now follow me where I'm going. You will follow later." 36 Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later."
37 "Master," said Peter, "why can't I follow now? I'll lay down my life for you!" 37 Peter asked, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."
38 "Really? You'll lay down your life for me? The truth is that before the rooster crows, you'll deny me three times." 38 Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
