my sake? Verily verily I say unto thee, The cock will not crow*, till thou have denied me thrice.

CH. XIV. "Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God; 2 believe in me also. In my Father's house are many man

sions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to 3 prepare a place for you. And after I shall have gone and prepared a place for yout, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that, where I am, ye also may be. 4 And whither I go, ye know; and the way ye know." 5 Thomas saith unto him, " Master, we know not whi6ther thou goest; and how can we know the way?" Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, and the truth, and 7 the life no man cometh to the Father but by me. If ye knew me, ye would know my Father also: and hence8 forth ye know him, and have seen him." Philip saith unto him, "Master, show us the Father; and it suf9 ficeth us." Jesus saith unto him, "Have I been so long with you, and dost thou not know me, Philip? He that hath seen me, hath seen¶ the Father: how then sayest thou, 10. Show us the Father?' Believest thou not that I am in

verily I say unto you, He who believeth in me, the works which I do he also shall do: and greater works than these he shall do, because I go to [my] Father ;

13 and whatsoever* ye shall ask in my name†, I will do; 14 that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15 " If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will 16 ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate ‡, 17 that he may abide with you for ever; even the spirit of truth, whom¶ the world cannot receive, because it discerneth him not, nor knoweth him ; but ye shall know him; for he shall abide with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you destitute ††: I will come unto you ‡‡. 19 But a little time longer, and the world shall see me no

more; but ye shall see me because I live, ye also shall 20 live. In that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, 21 and you in me, and I in you. He that hath my com

mandments, and keepeth them, he it is who loveth me: and he who loveth me, shall be loved by my Father; and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."


Judas (not Iscariot) saith unto him, "Master, how is it that thou wilt soon manifest thyself to us, and not to 23 the world?" Jesus answered and said unto him, " If any man love me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our 24 abode with him. He who loveth me not, keepeth not my words: and yet the word which ye hear, is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.


"These things I speak unto you, while I abide with 26 you. But the Advocate ‡, even the holy spirit which the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and shall bring all things to your remembrance

Ye have heard that I said unto you, 'I go away, and will come again unto you.' If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I go to the Father: for [my] 29 Father is greater than I.

CH. XV. "I am the true vine; and my Father is the 2 husbandman. Every branch in me which beareth not


fruit, he taketh away and every branch which beareth 3 fruit, he pruneth, that it may bear more fruit. Ye are now clean, through the words which I have spoken unto 4 you. Abide in me; and I will abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in 5 the ne; so neither can ye, unless ye abide in me. am the vine; ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, he beareth much fruit: for, severed 6 from me, ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he shall be cast out as a severed branch, and shall wither: and men shall gather†† together such branches, and cast 7 them into the fire, and they shall be burned. If ye abide

in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what 8 ye will, and it shall be done for you. Herein is my Fa

ments, ye will abide in my love; as I have kept my Fa11 ther's commandments, and abide in his love. These

things I speak unto you, that my joy in you may abide, 12. and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment; 13 that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater

love than this hath no man, that a man lay down his life 14 for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever 15 things I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his master doeth: but I call you friends; for all things which I have heard from 16 my Father, I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me; but I have chosen you, and appointed you, that ye may go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain that whatever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.


"These things I command you*, that ye may love 18 one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it 19 hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, there20 fore the world hateth you. Remember the words which I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also if they have kept my words, they will keep 21 yours also. But all these things they will do unto you on account of my name; because they know not him 22 who sent me. If I had not come, and spoken unto them,


they would not have had sin but now they have no ex23 cuse for their sin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father 24 also. If I had not done among them the works which

none other man did, they would not have had sin : but now they have both seen, and have hated, both me and

"But when the Advocate is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the spirit of truth which 27 proceedeth from the Father, he will testify of me. And ye also shall testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.


CH. XVI. "These things I have spoken unto you, that ye 2 may not offendt. They will put you out of the syna

things they will do, because they have not known the 4 Father, or me. But these things I have spoken unto you, that, when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you from the beginning ‡, because I was with you. 5 But now I depart to him who sent me; and none of you 6 asketh me, Whither goest thou?' But because I have spoken these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your


"Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is expedient for you that I go away for if I go not away, the Advocate†† will not come unto you; but if I go, I will send 8 him unto you. And when he is come, he will convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement : 9 of sin, because they believe not in me; of righteousness, 10 because I go to my Father, and ye see me no longer; 11 of judgement, because the prince of this world is judged J. 12 I have still many things to say unto you; but ye cannot 13 bear them now. However, when he cometh, even the

spirit of truth, he will guide you into all the truth: for he will not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that he will speak: and he will show you things to come.
