But now (A)I am going to him who sent me, and (B)none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, (C)sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for (D)if I do not go away, (E)the Helper will not come to you. But (F)if (G)I go, (H)I will send him to you. (I)And when he comes, he will (J)convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, (K)because they do not believe in me; 10 (L)concerning righteousness, (M)because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 (N)concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world (O)is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When (P)the Spirit of truth comes, (Q)he will (R)guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but (S)whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will (T)glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 (U)All that the Father has is mine; (V)therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Your Sorrow Will Turn into Joy

16 (W)“A little while, and you will see me no longer; and (X)again a little while, and you will see me.”
