John 14



1 Let not your heart be disturbed; believe in God, and believe in Me.

2 In My Father’s house are many abodes; and if not, I would have told you; I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come* again, and take you to Myself, that where I am, you may be also.

4 And whither I go you know, and the way you know.

5 Thomas says to Him, Lord, we know not whither Thou goest, and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus says to him, I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no·​·one comes to the Father except by Me.

7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.

8 Philip says to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.

9 Jesus says to him, Am I with thee so·​·much time and hast thou not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; and how sayest thou, show us the Father?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The sayings that I speak to you, I speak not from Myself, but the Father who remains in Me, He does the works.

11 Believe Me, that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me; otherwise, on account of the works themselves, Believe Me.

12 Amen, Amen, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also, and greater than these shall he do, because I go to My Father.

13 And whatever you shall ask in My name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you shall ask anything in My name I will do it.

15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.

16 And I will beseech the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, that it may remain with you into eternity;

17 the Spirit of Truth, which the world cannot receive, because it beholds it not, neither knows it; but you know it, because it remains with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you orphans; I come to you.

19 Yet a little while and the world beholds Me no more, but you behold Me; because I live, you shall live also.

20 In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.

22 Judas, not Iscariot, says to Him, Lord, what has come·​·to·​·pass that Thou art·​·about to manifest Thyself to us, and not to the world?

23 Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone love Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make an abode with him.

24 He who loves Me not keeps not My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.

25 These things have I spoken to you, remaining with you.

26 And the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, which the Father will send in My name, this will teach you all things, and will remind you of all things which I have said to·​·you.

27 Peace I leave to·​·you, My Peace I give to·​·you; not as the world gives, give I to·​·you. Let not your heart be disturbed, neither let it be·​·afraid.

28 You have heard that I said to you, I go·​·away, and come to you. If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said I go to the Father, for My Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you before it come·​·to·​·pass, that when it has come·​·to·​·pass, you might believe.

30 I will no·​·longer speak many things with you, for the ruler of this world comes, and has nothing in Me.

31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and even·​·as the Father has commanded Me, so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
