I said to you, “The servant “is not greater than his lord:” if they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also: 21 but, all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they know not him who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin: but now, they have no cloak for their sin: 23 he who hateth me, hateth my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no other hath done, they would not have had sin; but now, they have both seen and hated, both me and my Father; 25 yea, (that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law,) “They have hated “me without a cause:” 26 but, when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he will bear testimony of me: 27 and ye also shall bear testimony, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

CHAPTER XVI.

THESE things I have spoken to you, that your faith may not be shaken :

2 they will cast you out of the synagogues; yea, the time cometh, that whoever killeth you, will think that he offereth service to God: 3 and they will do these things, because they have not known either the Father, or Ime : 4 but these things I have told you, that when their time cometh, ye may remember that I told you of them. 5 And I told you not these things at the beginning, because I was with you; but now, I am going away to him who sent me: 6 yet, none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? but, because I have told you these things, sorrow hath filled your heart: 7 but I tell you the truth, It is good for you that I go away : for, if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but, when I go, I will send him to you: 8 and, when he is come, he will convince the world, of Sin, and of Justification, and of Condemnation: 9 of Sin, because they believe not on me : 10 of Justification, because I go to my Father, and ye see Ine Ino Inore : 11 of Condemnation, because the ruler of this world is condemned.

12 I have yet many things to say to you, but ye are not able to bear them now; 13 but when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you to all the truth: for he will not speak from himself; but will speak whatever he shall hear, and will tell you the things that are to come: 14 he will glorify me; for he will receive of mine, and will declare it to you: 15 all things that the Father hath are mine; therefore I said, that he will receive of mine, and will declare it to you. 16 A little while, and ye will not see me; and again, a little while, and ye will see me: . 17 then said some of his disciples among themselves,What is this that he saith to us, “A “little while, and ye will not “ see me: and again, a little “while, and ye will see me?” and this, “Because I go to the “ Father?” 18 they said, therefore, We know not what that little while is, of which he speaketh. 19 Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him; and he said to them, Ye question among yourselves, because I said, A little while, and ye will not see me: and again, a little while, and ye will see me? 20 verily, verily, I tell you, That ye will weep and lament,

but the world will rejoice: and ye will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. 21 A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but, as soon as she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth the anguish no more, through the joy that a man is born into the world : 22 and ye, therefore, have sorrow now ; but I will see you

again, and your heart will re-oxx. 90.

joice, and your joy no one shall take from you. 23 And, in that day, ye shall ask me nothing : verily, verily, I tell you, Whatever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give you : 24 hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be made full. 25 These things I have spoken to you in proverbs; but the time cometh, when I will no more speak to you in proverbs, but will tell you openly concerning the Father: 26 in that day ye shall ask in my name; and I say not to you, that I will pray the Father for you; 27 for, the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from the Father.

28 I came out from the Father, and am come into the world; again, I leave the world, and go to the Father: 29 his disciples said to him, Lo, now thou speakest openly, and speakest no proverb; 30 now we know that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any one should ask thee; by this we believe that thou camest out from God : 31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32 behold, the hour cometh, yea, is come, when ye will be scattered, every one to his own, and will leave me alone; yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me: 33 these things I have spoken to you, that ye might have peace in me: in the world, ye will have tribulation; but, be of good courage, I have overcome the world.

CHAPTER XVII.

THESE words spake Jesus; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour is come! 2 Glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee; according as thou hast given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him : 3 and this is eternal life, to know that thou art the only

true God; and that Jesus, whom thou hast sent, is Christ. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth, by accomplishing the work which thou gavest me to do: 5 and now, O Father, glorify me thyself, with the glory, which I had with thee, before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world : thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word: 7 now they know, that all things that thou hast given me, are from thee: 8 for I have given to them the words which thou gavest to me, and they have received them; and they have known, that I truly came out from thee; and they have believed, that thou didst send me: 9 I pray for them : I pray not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me; for they are thine: 10 and all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them : 11 and I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I am going to thee: Holy Father keep them in that thy name which thou hast given to me, that they may be one, even as we are one : 12 while I was with them, I

preserved them in that thy name which thou hast given to me; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled : 13 and now I am going to thee: but I speak these things to them in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world; 15 I ask not, that thou shouldest take them out of the world; but that thou shouldest preserve them from the evil one : 16 they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them with the truth; thy word is the truth: 18 as thou hast sent me into the world, so I also have sent them into the world; 19 and for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified with truth. 20 And I ask not for these only, but for those also who believe on me through their word; that all may be one; 21 as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me: 22 and the glory which thou gavest to me, I have given to

them; that they may be one, eWell as We are One : 23 that they may be perfected in one, I in them, and thou in me; that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou lovedst me. 24 Father, who gavest them to me, I will that where I am they also may be with me; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me, for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 Righteous Father! though the world knew thee not, yet I knew thee; and these have known that thou hast sent me : 26 and I have declared to them thy name, and will declare it ; that the love with which thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.

risees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4 Jesus, therefore, knowing all the things that were coming upon him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye? 5 they answered him, Jesus of Nazareth: he saith to them, I am he and Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them: 6 when, therefore, he said to them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground: 7 then he asked them again, Whom seek ye? and they said, Jesus of Nazareth: 8 Jesus answered, I told you that I am he if, therefore, ye seek me, let these go away: 9 that the word which he spake might be fulfilled, “Of “ them whom thou gavest me, “I have lost none.” 10 Then Simon Peter having a sword, drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear; and the servant's name was Malchus: 11 then said Jesus to Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath : the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink? 12 Then the band and the captain, and the officers of the Jews, took Jesus, and bound him : 13 and led him away, first, to Annas; for he was father-inlaw to Caiaphas, who was high priest of that year:

14 and Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Jews, that it was better that one man should die, than the people. 15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and the other disciple; and that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the high priest, but Peter stood at the door without: 16 that other disciple, therefore, who was known to the high priest, went out, and spake to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter: 17 then the maid that kept the door saith to Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? he saith, I am not: 18 and the servants and the officers, having made a fire because it was cold, stood there, and warmed themselves; and Peter was standing with them, and warming himself. 19 The high priest then asked Jesus concerning his disciples, and concerning his doctrine: 20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews are always resorting; and in secret I have spoken nothing : 21 why askest thou me? ask them who have heard me, what I have spoken to them; behold, they know what I have said: 22 and when he had thus
