 6But without faith it is impossible to please him:  
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,  
and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Keep His words

Obey His commandments

   
   

John 14

 
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: 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 receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath 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 dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  
 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works‘ sake. He who comes to him must believe
 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. He rewards those who earnestly seek Him

Seek Him

He rewards

 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Seek Him

He rewards

 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. Seek, Reward
 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
 16And I will pray 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 seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye 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 hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  
 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, 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 come 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 cometh, and hath 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 hence.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  
 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:  
 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  
 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  
 4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.  
 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  
 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  
 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  
 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;  
 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  
 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.  
 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  
 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  
 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. To please God, Believe, Seek
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

 10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Peace of God
 11For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.  
 12Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.  
 13Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?  
 14I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;  
 15Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.  
 16And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.  
 17For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. Power of God

Wisdom of God

 18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  
 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.  
 20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?  
 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.  
 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:  
 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;  
 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. We can do nothing apart from Him
 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  
 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:  
 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; Jesus chose us

Jesus gives His peace

 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:  
 29That no flesh should glory in his presence.  
 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: Because I go to the Father
 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.  
   
   
   
   
   

John 14

 
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: 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 receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath 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 dwelleth in me, he doeth 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 believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  
 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  
 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  
 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
 16And I will pray 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 seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye 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 hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  
 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, 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 come 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 cometh, and hath 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 hence.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  
 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:  
 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  
 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  
 4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.  
 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  
 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  
 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  
 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;  
 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  
 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.  
 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  
 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  
 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

John 14

 
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: 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 receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath 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 dwelleth in me, he doeth 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 believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  
 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  
 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  
 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
 16And I will pray 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 seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye 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 hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  
 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, 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 come 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 cometh, and hath 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 hence.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  
 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name‘s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:  
 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  
 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  
 4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.  
 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  
 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  
 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  
 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;  
 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  
 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.  
 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  
 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  
 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father? Passes our understanding
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. The peace of God will keep us in His name
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Thnaksgiving
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifestedthy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: 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 receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. Keeping us through His name
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. Through the truth, the word
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; Utterance
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Holy, Whole

Witness

 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.  

Lover and Peace

   
Love and Peace  
   
   
   
 11I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.  
 12Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.  
 13For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong.  
 14Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.  
 15And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.  
 16But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.  
 17Did I make a gain of you by any of them whom I sent unto you?  
 18I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother. Did Titus make a gain of you? walked we not in the same spirit? walked we not in the same steps?  
 19Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.  
 20For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults: Love

Keep His commandments

 21And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.  
 1This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.  
 2I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare:  
 3Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.  
 4For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.  
 5Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?  
 6But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.  
 7Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.  
 8For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.  
 9For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. sanctified
 10Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.  
 11Finally, brethren, farewell.

Be perfect,

be of good comfort,

be of one mind,

live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

John 14

 
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: 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 receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath 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 dwelleth in me, he doeth 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 believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  
 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  
 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  
 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
 16And I will pray 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 seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.  
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye 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 hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  
 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  
 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 1 Redemption

3. Reconciliation

 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 come 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 cometh, and hath 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 hence.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit  
 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:  
 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  
 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  
 4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.  
 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  
 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  
 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  
 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;  
 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  
 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.  
 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  
 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  
 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

1Let not your heart be
troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2In my Father’s house are many
mansions: 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 receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.
4And whither I go ye know, and
the way ye know.
5Thomas saith unto him, Lord,
we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6Jesus saith unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.
7If ye had known me, ye should
have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and
have seen him.
8Philip saith unto him, Lord,
show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9Jesus saith unto him, Have I
been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me,
Philip? he that hath seen me hath 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 dwelleth in me, he
doeth 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 believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do
also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto
my Father.
13And whatsoever ye shall ask
in my name, that will I do,
that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14If ye shall ask
any thing in my name, I will
do it.
15If ye love me, keep my
commandments.
16And I will pray 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 seeth him not, neither
knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall
be in you.
18I will not leave you
comfortless: I will come to you.
19Yet a little while, and the
world seeth me no more; but ye 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 hath my
commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he
that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him,
and will manifest myself to him.
22Judas saith unto him, not
Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us,
and not unto the world?
23Jesus answered and said unto
him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will
love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24He that loveth me not
keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine,
but the Father’s which sent me.
25These things have I spoken
unto you, being yet present with you.
26But the Comforter, which is
the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in
my name
, he shall teach you all things, and bring all
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27Peace I leave with you, my
peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, 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 come 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 cometh, and hath
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 hence.

John 15

1I am the true vine, and my
Father is the husbandman.
2Every branch in me that
beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth
fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3Now ye are clean through the
word which I have spoken unto you.
4Abide in me, and I in you. As
the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the
vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5I am the vine, ye are the
branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth
forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6If a man abide not in me, he
is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them,
and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7If ye
abide in me, and my words abide in you
, ye shall ask
what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8Herein is my Father
glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9As the Father hath loved me,
so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s
commandments, and abide in his love.
11These things have I spoken
unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might
be full.
12This is my commandment, That
ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13Greater love hath no man
than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14Ye are my friends, if ye do
whatsoever I command you.
15Henceforth I call you not
servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I
have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my
Father I have made known unto you.
16Ye have not chosen me, but I
have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring
forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye
shall ask of the Father in
my name
, he may give it you.
17These things I command you,
that ye love one another.
18If the world hate you, ye
know that it hated me before it hated you.
19If ye were of the world, the
world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but
I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth
you.
20Remember the word that I
said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they
have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have
kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21But all these things will
they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him
that sent me.
22If I had not come and spoken
unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for
their sin.
23He that hateth me hateth my
Father also.
24If I had not done among them
the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now
have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25But this cometh to pass,
that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law,
They hated me without a cause.
26But when the Comforter is
come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit
of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of
me:
27And ye also shall bear
witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

John 16

1These things have I spoken
unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2They shall put you out of the
synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will
think that he doeth God service.
3And these things will they do
unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4But these things have I told
you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told
you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the
beginning, because I was with you.
5But now I go my way to him
that sent me; and none of you asketh
me, Whither goest thou?
6But because I have said these
things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
7Nevertheless I tell you the
truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not
away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I
will send him unto you.
8And when he is come, he will
reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they believe
not on me;
10Of righteousness, because I
go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11Of judgment, because the
prince of this world is judged.
12I have yet many things to
say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13Howbeit when he, the Spirit
of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall
not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he
speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14He shall glorify me: for he
shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15All things that the Father
hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and
shall shew it unto you.
16A little while, and ye shall
not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me,
because I go to the Father.
17Then said some of his
disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A
little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while,
and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18They said therefore, What is
this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
19Now Jesus knew that they
were desirous to ask him, and
said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A
little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while,
and ye shall see me?
20Verily, verily, I say unto
you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice:
and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into
joy.
21A woman when she is in
travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she
is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish,
for joy that a man is born into the world.
22And ye now therefore have
sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice,
and your joy no man taketh from you.
23And in that day ye shall ask
me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall
ask the Father in
my name
, he will give it you.
24Hitherto have ye asked
nothing in my name: ask,
and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25These things have I spoken
unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more
speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the
Father.
26At that day ye shall ask
in my name: and I say not unto
you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27For the Father himself
loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I
came out from God.
28I came forth from the
Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and
go to the Father.
29His disciples said unto him,
Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30Now are we sure that thou
knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask
thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
31Jesus answered them, Do ye
now believe?
32Behold, the hour cometh,
yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his
own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the
Father is with me.
33These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall
have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 17

1These words spake Jesus, and
lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come;
glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2As thou hast given him power
over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as
thou hast given him.
3And this is life eternal,
that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent.
4I have glorified thee on the
earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5And now, O Father, glorify
thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee
before the world was.
6I have manifested thy name
unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they
were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7Now they have known that all
things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8For I have given unto them
the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and
have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have
believed that thou didst send me.
9I pray for them: I pray not
for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are
thine.
10And all mine are thine, and
thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11And now I am no more in the
world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy
Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me,
that they may be one, as we are.
12While I was with them in the
world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have
kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the
scripture might be fulfilled.
13And now come I to thee; and
these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy
fulfilled in themselves.
14I have given them thy word;
and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
15I pray not that thou
shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep
them from the evil.
16They are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them through thy
truth: thy word is truth.
18As thou hast sent me into
the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19And for their sakes I
sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the
truth.
20Neither pray I for these
alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their
word;
21That they all may be one; as
thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one
in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22And the glory which thou
gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are
one:
23I in them, and thou in me,
that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know
that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved
me.
24Father, I will that they
also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they
may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me
before the foundation of the world.
25O righteous Father, the
world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have
known that thou hast sent me.
26And I have declared unto
them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou
hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
