John 14
New Heart English Bible
1"Do not let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many dwelling places. If it weren't so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also. 4And you know where I am going and you know the way." 5Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?" 6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

7If you have known me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him."

8Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us." 9Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you all this time, and still you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father?' 10Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me; or else believe because of the works themselves. 12Truly, truly, I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.

15If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

16I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever,� 17the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive; because it neither sees him nor knows him; but you know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

18I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more; but you will see me. Because I live, you will live also. 20In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21The one who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me. And the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will reveal myself to him." 22Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, what has happened that you are about to reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?" 23Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling place with him. 24He who does not love me does not keep my words. The word which you hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.

25All this I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. 27Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28You heard how I told you, 'I am going away, and I will come to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. 29Now I have told you before it happens so that, when it happens, you may believe. 30I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has no hold on me. 31But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father commanded me, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
