Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1"I have spoken these things with you that you would not be subverted." 2"For they shall put you out from their assemblies, and the hour will come when everyone who would kill you will think that he presents an offering to God." 3"And they shall do these things because they do not know either my Father or me." 4"I have spoken these things with you that when their time comes, you will remember them; I did not tell you these things before, because I was with you."
5"But now I am going to join him who sent me, and no man among you asks me, 'Where are you going?'" 6"For I said these things to you and sadness has come and has filled your hearts." 7"I tell you the truth: it is beneficial for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Redeemer of the accursed will not come to you, but if I depart I shall send him to you." 8"And when he comes, he will correct the world concerning sin and concerning righteousness and concerning judgment;" 9"Concerning sin, because they do not trust me;" 10"Concerning righteousness, because I will go to my Father's presence and you will not see me again;" 11"Concerning judgment, because The Prince of this world is judged."
12"I have much to say to you, but you are not able to grasp it now." 13"But whenever The Spirit of The Truth comes, he will lead you into the whole truth, for he will not speak of his own will, but he shall speak whatever he shall hear and he shall reveal the future to you." 14"And he shall glorify me, because he shall take that which is mine and shall show you." 15"Everything that my Father has is mine, therefore I said to you that he shall take that which is mine and he shall show you."
16"A little while and you will not see me; again a little while and you will see me because I am going to the presence of The Father."
17And his disciples were saying to one another, "What is this that he said to us: 'A little while and you will not see me and again a little while and you shall see me', and, 'I am going to join my Father.'"? 18And they were saying, "What is this, 'A little while', that he says? We do know not what he is uttering." 19But Yeshua knew that they wanted to ask him and he said to them, "Are you inquiring about this with each other, because I said to you, 'A little while and you will not see me and again, a little while, and you will see me'"? 20"Timeless truth, I speak to you: you shall weep and mourn and the world will rejoice, and you will have sorrow, but your sorrow will be turned into joy." 21"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because the day for her delivery has arrived, but when she has delivered a son, she does not remember her distress for the joy that a son has been born into the world." 22"You also now have sorrow, but I shall see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man shall take from you."
23"And in that day you will not ask me anything. Timeless truth I speak to you: Everything that you shall ask my Father in my name, he shall give to you." 24"Until now you have not asked anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be perfect."
25"I have spoken these things in parables with you, but the hour is coming when I shall speak with you, not in parables, but I shall declare to you about The Father plainly." 26"In that day, you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I shall request from The Father for you." 27"For The Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I have come forth from union with God *." 28For I have proceeded from union with The Father and I have come into the world, and again I leave the world, and I am going to join The Father."
29His disciples were saying to him, "Behold, now you are speaking plainly and you are not speaking any parable." 30"Now we know that you know everything and that you do not need that anyone should ask you; in this we believe that you have proceeded from God." 31Yeshua said to them, "Believe it." 32"Behold the hour comes and now it has come, when you will be scattered everyone to his place and you will leave me alone, and I shall not be alone because The Father is with me." 33"I have spoken these things to you so that you shall have peace in me. You shall have suffering in the world, but take heart, I have overcome the world."
