John 16:1-19

Wesley(i) 1 I have told you these things, that ye may not be offended. They will put you out of the synagogues; 2 yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think he doth God service. 3 These things will they do, because they have not known the Father nor me. 4 But I have told you these things, that when the time shall come, ye may remember I told you them. I did not tell you these things at the beginning, because I was with you. 5 But now I go to him that sent me, and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have told you this, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 But I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go: for if I go not, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you. 8 And he coming will convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say to you; but ye cannot bear them now. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, he will speak; and he will shew you things to come. 14 He will glorify me; for he will take of mine, and shew it you. 15 All things that the Father hath, are mine: therefore I said, He will take of mine, and shew it you. 16 A little while and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. 17 Then some of his disciples said to each other, What is this that he said to 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? 18 They said therefore, What is this little while that he speaketh of? We understand not what he saith. 19 Jesus knew they were desirous to ask him, and said to them, Ye inquire among you of this, that I said, A little while and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while and ye shall see me.
