10 Do you not believe that (A)I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you (B)I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that (C)I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else (D)believe on account of the works themselves.

12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, (E)whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I (F)am going to the Father. 13 (G)Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that (H)the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 (I)If you ask me[a] anything in my name, I will do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 (J)“If you love me, you will (K)keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another (L)Helper,[b] to be with you forever, 17 even (M)the Spirit of truth, (N)whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and (O)will be[c] in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans; (P)I will come to you. 19 (Q)Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but (R)you will see me. (S)Because I live, you also will live. 20 (T)In that day you will know that (U)I am in my Father, and (V)you in me, and (W)I in you. 21 (X)Whoever has my commandments and (Y)keeps them, he it is who loves me. And (Z)he who loves me (AA)will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and (AB)manifest myself to him.” 22 (AC)Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it (AD)that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered him, (AE)“If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and (AF)we will come to him and (AG)make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And (AH)the word that you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me.

25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26 But the (AI)Helper, the Holy Spirit, (AJ)whom the Father will send in my name, (AK)he will teach you all things and (AL)bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 (AM)Peace I leave with you; (AN)my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. (AO)Let not your hearts be troubled, neither (AP)let them be afraid. 28 (AQ)You heard me say to you, (AR)‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I (AS)am going to the Father, for (AT)the Father is greater than I. 29 And (AU)now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for (AV)the ruler of this world is coming. (AW)He has no claim on me, 31 but I do (AX)as the Father has commanded me, (AY)so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here.

I Am the True Vine

15 “I am the (AZ)true vine, and my Father is (BA)the vinedresser. (BB)Every branch in me that does not bear fruit (BC)he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, (BD)that it may bear more fruit. Already (BE)you are clean (BF)because of the word that I have spoken to you. (BG)Abide (BH)in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; (BI)you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that (BJ)bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me (BK)he is thrown away like a branch and withers; (BL)and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If (BM)you abide in me, and my words abide in you, (BN)ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. (BO)By this my Father is glorified, that you (BP)bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. (BQ)As the Father has loved me, (BR)so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 (BS)If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as (BT)I have kept (BU)my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, (BV)that my joy may be in you, and that (BW)your joy may be full.
