33 (A)Little children, I am still with you (B)a little longer. (C)You will look for Me; and just as I said to the [a]Jews, now I also say to you: ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’ 34 I am giving you a (D)new commandment, (E)that you love one another; (F)just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 (G)By this all people will know that you are My disciples: if you have love for one another.”

36 Simon Peter *said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered, (H)Where I am going, you cannot follow Me now; but (I)you will follow later.” 37 Peter *said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You right now? (J)I will lay down my life for You.” 38 Jesus *replied, “Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly I say to you, (K)a rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

14 (L)Do not let your heart be troubled; [b]believe in God, believe also in Me.
