Christ comforteth his disciples against tribulation by the promise of the Holy Ghost, and by his resurrection and ascension:
John 16:1 These things, have I spoken unto you, that ye may not be caused to stumble: John 16:2 Excommunicants from the synagogue, will they make you; Nay! there cometh an hour, that, every one who killeth you, shall think to be rendering, divine service, unto God! John 16:3 And, these things, will they do, because they got to know, neither the Father nor me. John 16:4 But, these things, have I told you,That, whensoever their hour shall come, ye may remember, that, thereof, I told you. These things, however, I told you not, from the beginning, because I was, with you; John 16:5 But, now, I go my way unto him that sent me, and, not one from among you, questioneth meWhither goest thou? John 16:6 But, because, these things, I have told you, sorrow, hath filled your heart. John 16:7 But, I, the truth, am telling youIt is profitable for you, that, I, depart; for, if I should not depart, The Advocate, would in nowise come unto you, but, if I go, I will send him unto you. John 16:8 And, having come, He, will reprove the worldConcerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment: John 16:9 Concerning sin, indeed, because they are not believing on me; John 16:10 But, concerning righteousness, because, unto the Father, I go my way, and, no longer, do ye behold me; John 16:11 And, concerning judgment, because, the ruler of this world, hath been judged. John 16:12 Yet many things, have I, unto you, to be saying,but ye cannot bear them, just now; John 16:13 Howbeit, as soon as, he, hath comeThe Spirit of truth, he will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak from himself, but, whatsoever he heareth, he will speak, and, the coming things, will he announce unto you. John 16:14 He, shall glorify me; for, of mine, shall he receive, and announce unto you. John 16:15 All things, whatsoever the Father hath, are, my own; therefore, said IOf mine, shall he receive, and announce unto you. John 16:16 A little while, and, no longer, ye behold me; and, again a little while, and ye shall see me. John 16:17 Some of his disciples, therefore, said one to anotherWhat is this which he is saying to us:A little while, and ye behold me not, and, again a little while, and ye shall see me; andBecause I go my way unto the Father? John 16:18 They were saying, thereforeWhat is this which he saith:A little while? We know not [what he is saying]. John 16:19 Jesus took note, that they were wishing to question him, and said unto themConcerning this, are ye enquiring one with another,because I said:A little while, and ye behold me not, and, again, a little while, and ye shall see me? John 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto youYe, shall weep and lament, but, the world, shall rejoice: Ye, shall be grieved, but, your grief, into joy, shall be turned. John 16:21 A woman, as soon as she is about to bring forth, hath, grief, because her hour hath come; but, as soon as she hath given birth to the child, no longer, remembereth she the anguish, by reason of the joy, that a human being into the world hath been born. John 16:22 And, ye, therefore, now, indeed have grief; but, again, will I see you, and your heart shall rejoice,and, your joy, no one, shall force from you.
assureth their prayers made in his name to be acceptable to his Father.
John 16:23 And, in that day, shall ye request me, nothing:Verily, verily, I say unto youWhatsoever ye shall ask the Father, He will give you, in my name. John 16:24 Until even now, ye have asked nothing in my name: Be asking, and ye shall receive,that, your joy, may be made full. John 16:25 These things, in similitudes, have I spoken unto you: There cometh an hour, when, no longer in similitudes, will I speak unto you, but, openly, concerning the Father, will I tell you. John 16:26 In that day, In my name, shall ye ask:and I say not that, I, will request the Father for you; John 16:27 For, the Father himself, dearly loveth you, because, ye, have dearly loved me, and believed that, I, from the Father, came forth: John 16:28 I came forth out of the Father, and have come into the world,Again, I leave the world, and go, unto the Father. John 16:29 His disciples saySee! now, openly, art thou speaking, and, not a single similitude, art thou using: John 16:30 Now, we know, that thou knowest all things, and hast, no need, that one be questioning thee. Hereby, do we believe, that, from God, thou camest forth. John 16:31 Jesus answered themAs yet, ye believe: John 16:32 Lo! there cometh an hour, and hath come, that ye should be scattered, each, unto his own home; and, me, alone, should leave;And yet I am not, alone, but, the Father, is, with me!
Peace in Christ, and in the world affliction.
John 16:33 These things, have I spoken unto you, that, in me, ye may have, peace: In the world, ye have, tribulation; but be taking courage,I, have overcome the world.
