John 16 : 20 - 33

Chapter 16

20Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
21A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
22Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
23"And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
24Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
25"These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father.
26In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;
27for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
28I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father."
29His disciples said to Him, "See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech!
30Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God."
31Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe?
32Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
33These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."


And Glory be to God forever.
