have called you friends; for all things that I heard from 16 my Father I made known unto you. Ye did not choose me,

but I chose you, and appointed you that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should abide; that whatsoever

ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

If the world hates you, ye know that it has hated me 19 first. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own:

but because ye are not of the world, but I choose you out of 20 the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the

word that I said unto you, A servant is not greater than his

lord. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you; 21 if they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But

all these things they will do unto you for my name's sake, 22 because they know not him that sent me. If I had not

come and spoken unto them, they would not have had sin : 23 but now they have no pretence for their sin. He that 24 hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done

among them the works which none other did, they

would not have had sin; but now have they both seen and 25 hated both me and my Father. But this comes to pass,

that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their law, 26 They hated me without a

When the Advocate comes whom I will send unto you from the Father, the

Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will 27 bear witness of me: and ye also bear witness, because ye are with me from the beginning.

THESE things have I spoken unto you, that ye may 2 not be offended. They will put you out of the synagogues : yea, an hour comes, that every one who kills

you

will think 3 he offers service to God. And these things will they do, 4 because they knew not the Father, nor me. But these

things have I spoken to you, that when the hour shall come, ye may remember them, that I told you. And these

things I told you not at the beginning, because I was with 5 you.

But now I am going to him that sent me; and 6 none of you is asking me, Whither goest thou ? Yet because

I have spoken these things unto you, sorrow has filled

cause.

CH. XVI.

your heart.

Nevertheless I tell you the truth ; it is 7 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 him unto you.

And when he is come, he will convict the 8 world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. Of 9 sin, because they believe not in me; of righteousness, 10 because I am going to the Father, and ye behold me no more; and of judgment, because the ruler of this world has 11 been judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but 12 ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit 13 of truth comes, he will guide you in all the truth : for he will not speak from himself, but whatsoever he hears he will speak : and he will declare unto you the things to come. He will glorify me, for he will receive of mine and 14 will declare it unto you. All things that the Father has 15 are mine : therefore I said, that he receives of mine, and will declare it unto you. A little while, and ye behold me 16 no longer, and again a little while, and ye will see me. Therefore said some of his disciples one to another, What 17 is this that he says unto us, A little while, and ye behold me not: and again a little while, and ye will see me? and, I am going to the Father ? They said therefore, 18 What is this that he calls the little while? We know not what he speaks of. Jesus knew that they were desirous 19 to ask him, and he said unto them, Do ye enquire of this among yourselves that I said, A little while, and ye behold me not: and again a little while, and ye will see me? Verily, verily, I say unto you, that ye will weep and 20 lament, but the world will rejoice: ye will be sorry, but your sorrow will become joy. The wife when she is in 21 travail has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers no more the affliction, because of the joy that a man is born into the world. So ye also now have sorrow: but I will see 22 you again, and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you. And in that day ye will ask of me 23 nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father, he will give it you in my name. Hither- 24

25

to ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye will receive, that your joy may be made full.

These things have I spoken unto you in parables : an hour comes, when I shall no more speak unto you

in

parables, but I shall tell you openly concerning the Father. 26 In that day ye will ask in my name; and I say not unto 27 you, that I will ask the Father for you: for the Father

himself loves you, because ye have loved me, and have 28 believed that I came forth from God. I came forth

from the Father, and have come into the world : again I 29 leave the world, and go to the Father. His disciples say,

Behold, now thou speakest openly, and sayest no parable. 30 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and needest

not that any one should ask thee: herein we believe that 31 thou camest forth from God. Jesus answered them, Do ye 32 now believe? Behold, an hour is coming and has come,

that ye will be scattered, each one to his own, and will

leave me alone : and yet I am not alone, because the 33 Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you,

that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have afilic

tion : but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. CH. XVII. THESE words spake Jesus, and having lifted up his eyes

to heaven, said, Father, the hour has come; glorify thy 2 Son, that thy Son may glorify thee, even as thou gavest

him authority over all flesh, that whatsoever thou hast given 3 him, he should give to them life everlasting. And this is

the everlasting life, that they know thee the only true God, 4 and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. I glorified

thee on the earth; by completing the work which thou 5 hast given me to do; and now, O Father, glorify thou me

with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee 6 before the world was. I manifested thy name unto the men

whom thou gavest me out of the world. Thine they were,

and thou gavest them me, and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast 8 given me are from thee; for I have given unto them the

words which thou gavest unto me; and they received them, and knew indeed that I came forth from thee, and believed that thou didst send me. I ask for them: I ask 9 not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me, because they are thine. And all things that are mine 10 are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and they are in the world, 11 and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are. When I was with them I was keeping them in 12 thy name which thou hast given me, and I guarded them, and none of them perished but the son of destruction, that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I come to 13 thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves. I have given 14 them thy word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world even as I am not of the world. I 15 ask not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them out of the evil one. They are not of the world even as I am not of the 16 world. Sanctify them in the truth : thy word is truth. 17 Even as thou didst send me into the world, I also sent 18 them into the world; and for their sakes I sanctify myself, 19 that they also may be sanctified in truth. And I ask 20 not for these only, but also for them that believe in me through their word, that all may be one, even as thou 21 Father art in me and I in thee, that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that thou didst send me.

And 22 the glory which thou hast given me I have given them, that they may be one even as we are one: I in them, and thou 23 in me, that they may be perfected into one, that the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them as thou lovedst me. Father, I will that what thou hast given 24 me, even they may be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me, because thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. Righteous 25 Father! and the world knew thee not! but I knew thee; and these knew that thou didst send me; and I made known 26 unto them thy name, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou lovedst me may be in them and I in them.

CH. XVIII. HAVING spoken these words, Jesus went forth with his

disciples over the brook of the cedar, where was a garden, 2 into which he entered, himself and his disciples. And Judas

also, the one that delivers him up, knew the place: because 3 Jesus often resorted thither with his disciples. Judas

then, having received the band and officers from the chief

priests and from the Pharisees, comes thither with torches 4 and lamps and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all

the things coming upon him, went forth and says unto 5 them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus the

Nazarene. Jesus says unto them, I am he. Now Judas also, 6 the one that delivers him up, was standing with them. As

soon then as he said unto them, I am he, they went back7 ward and fell to the ground. Then again he asked them, 8 Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus

answered, I told you that I am he; if therefore ye seek me, 9 leave these to go away. That the saying might be fulfilled

which he spake, Of them whom thou hast given me I lost 10 none. Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and

smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right 11 ear; and the servant's name was Malchus. Then Jesus

said unto Peter, Put up the sword into the sheath. The cup which my Father has given me, shall I not drink it?

So the band and the captain and the officers of the Jews 13 took Jesus and bound him, and led him away to Annas

first; for he was father in law of Kaiaphas, who was high 14 priest of that year; and it was Kaiaphas who gave counsel

to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die 15 for the people. And Simon Peter was following Jesus, and

another disciple. And that disciple was known unto the

high priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the high 16 priest, but Peter was standing at the door without. Therefore

went out the other disciple, who was known unto the high

priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in 17 Peter. Then says the maid that kept the door unto Peter,

Art thou also one of this man's disciples ? He says, I am 18 not. And the servants and the officers were standing there,

having made a fire of coals because it was cold, and
