|<< John 14 >>|
Young's Literal Translation
Jesus Comforts the Disciples
1‘Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God, also in me believe;
2in the house of my Father are many mansions; and if not, I would have told you; I go on to prepare a place for you;
3and if I go on and prepare for you a place, again do I come, and will receive you unto myself, that where I am ye also may be;
4and whither I go away ye have known, and the way ye have known.’
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
5Thomas saith to him, ‘Sir, we have not known whither thou goest away, and how are we able to know the way?’
6Jesus saith to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me;
7if ye had known me, my Father also ye would have known, and from this time ye have known Him, and have seen Him.’
8Philip saith to him, ‘Sir, shew to us the Father, and it is enough for us;’
9Jesus saith to him, ‘So long time am I with you, and thou hast not known me, Philip? he who hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how dost thou say, Shew to us the Father?
10Believest thou not that I [am] in the Father, and the Father is in me? the sayings that I speak to you, from myself I speak not, and the Father who is abiding in me, Himself doth the works;
11believe me, that I [am] in the Father, and the Father in me; and if not, because of the works themselves, believe me.
12‘Verily, verily, I say to you, he who is believing in me, the works that I do — that one also shall do, and greater than these he shall do, because I go on to my Father;
13and whatever ye may ask in my name, I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son;
14if ye ask anything in my name I will do [it].
Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
(Joel 2:28-32; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:1-7)
15‘If ye love me, my commands keep,
16and I will ask the Father, and another Comforter He will give to you, that he may remain with you — to the age;
17the Spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it doth not behold him, nor know him, and ye know him, because he doth remain with you, and shall be in you.
18‘I will not leave you bereaved, I come unto you;
19yet a little, and the world doth no more behold me, and ye behold me, because I live, and ye shall live;
20in that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you;
21he who is having my commands, and is keeping them, that one it is who is loving me, and he who is loving me shall be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.’
22Judas saith to him, (not the Iscariot), ‘Sir, what hath come to pass, that to us thou are about to manifest thyself, and not to the world?’
23Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If any one may love me, my word he will keep, and my Father will love him, and unto him we will come, and abode with him we will make;
24he who is not loving me, my words doth not keep; and the word that ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me.
25‘These things I have spoken to you, remaining with you,
26and the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and remind you of all things that I said to you.
Peace I Leave with You
27‘Peace I leave to you; my peace I give to you, not according as the world doth give do I give to you; let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid;
28ye heard that I said to you — I go away, and I come unto you; if ye did love me, ye would have rejoiced that I said — I go on to the Father, because my Father is greater than I.
29‘And now I have said [it] to you before it come to pass, that when it may come to pass, ye may believe;
30I will no more talk much with you, for the ruler of this world doth come, and in me he hath nothing;
31but that the world may know that I love the Father, and according as the Father gave me command so I do; arise, we may go hence.
