|New International Version (© 2011)|
I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."
King James Bible
I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
American Standard Version
I came out from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go unto the Father.
Young's Literal Translation
I came forth from the Father, and have come to the world; again I leave the world, and go on unto the Father.'
John 16:28 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I came forth from the Father - With whom I existed from eternity in glory.
Am come into the world - By my incarnation.
I leave the world - By my death.
And go to the Father - By my ascension. These four words contain the whole economy of the Gospel of man's salvation, and a consummate abridgment of the Christian faith. This gave the disciples a key to the whole of our Lord's discourse; and especially to that part, John 16:16, that had so exceedingly embarrassed them, as appears by John 16:17, John 16:18.
