John 14

The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4So that ye know where I go, and ye know the way. 5Thomas said unto him, Lord, we know not where thou goest; how, therefore, can we know the way? 6Jesus said unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father, but by me. 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also; and from now on ye know him and have seen him. 8Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it will suffice us. 9Jesus said unto him, Have I been such a long time with you, and yet thou hast not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself; but the Father that dwells in me, he does the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes in me, the works that I do he shall do also; and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15If ye love me, keep my commandments; 16and I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever, 17even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see him, or know him; but ye know him, for he dwells with you and shall be in you.

18I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world shall see me no more, but ye shall see me; because I live, ye shall live also. 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me; and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him and will manifest myself to him. 22Judas, not Iscariot, said unto him, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us and not unto the world? 23Jesus answered and said unto him, He who loves me will keep my words, and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him and dwell with him. 24He that does not love me does not keep my words, and the word which ye have heard is not mine, but of the Father who sent me.

25I have spoken these things unto you, being yet present with you. 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all the things that I have said unto you. 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice because I said, I go unto the Father; for my Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you, for the prince of this world comes and has nothing in me. 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
