18 to the Father? They said therefore, What is this that he saith, "A little while?" We can19 not tell what he saith. Now Jesus knew they were desirous to ask him, and he said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, "A little while, and ye shall not sce me and again, a little while, and ye shall see 20 me?" Verily, verily I say unto you, that ye
shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice; and ye shall be sorrowful, but your 21 sorrow shall be turned into joy.* A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the 22 world. And now ye have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and 23 your joy no man taketh from you. In that day
ye will ask me nothing: Verily, verily I say unto you, whatever ye shall ask the Father 24 in my name, he will give it you.† Hitherto ye
have asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be perfect. 25 These things I have spoken unto you in para
bles but the time cometh when I will no more speak unto you in parables, but I will 26 shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye will ask in my name and I do not say that
* Their grief was indeed excessive, when he was taken and crucified; but his resurrection gave new hope and joy, which never forsook them.
We have no intimation that it is proper to pray to Christ; but we are directed to pray to God in his name, and with faith in his declarations.
27 I will pray the Father for you:* For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from 28 God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, 29 and go to the Father. His disciples said unto
him, Lo, now thou speakest plainly, and dost 30 not speak in parables. Now we are sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee :† by this we believe 31 that thou didst come from God. Jesus answer32 ed them, Do ye now believe? Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered every man to his own, and shall leave me alone; yet I am not alone, because 33 the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye will have trouble: but take courage, I have overcome the world.
JESUS spake these words, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may

This and the two preceding chapters were addressed to the disciples alone, to comfort them in the trials which awaited them.
2 glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as 3 many as thou hast given him. And this is eternal life, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.* 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with
thine ownself, with the glory which I had with 6 thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: they were thine and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy 7 word. They now know that all things, what8 soever thou hast given me, are of thee. For
I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst 9 send me. 1 pray for them: I world, but for them whom thou hast given me ; pray not for the 10 for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 And I am to be no more in the world; but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep in thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be 12 one, as we are. Whilst I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those

That is, the same doctrines and truths thou didst impart to me, I have made known to them.
that thou gavest me, I have kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that 13 the scripture might be fulfilled.* And now
I come to thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled inthem. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath
hated them, because they are not of the world, 15 evenas I am not of the world. Ipray not that thou
shouldest take them out of the world, but that 16 thou wouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the 17 world. Sanctify them by thy truth: thy word 18 is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth. 20 Nor do I pray for these only, but for them
also who shall believe on me through their 21 word; that they all may be one as thou, Father,
art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that 22 thou hast sent me. And the glory which
thou gavest me, I have given them; that they 23 may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast 24 loved me. Father, I will that they also whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me for thou lovedst me before 25 the foundation of the world. O righteous
As the scriptures foretold, says Dr. Campbell.
Father, the world indeed hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known 26 that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me máy be in them, and I in them.
1 WHEN Jesus had spoken these words, he went with his disciples over the brook Kedron, where was a garden, into which he entered, and his 2 disciples. And Judas who betrayed him, knew the place for Jesus often resorted hither with 3 his disciples. Then Judas having received the band and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns, and 4 torches, and weapons. And Jesus who knew all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye 5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto him, I am he. And Judas 6 also, who betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7 Then he asked them again, Whom seek ye? 8 And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus
answered, I have told you that I am he: If therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 9 That the saying might be fulfilled which he
spake, Of those whom thou gavest me, I have 10 lost none. Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and smote the high priest's servant,
