John 16:5-7 Living Bible (TLB)

“But now I am going away to the one who sent me; and none of you seems interested in the purpose of my going; none wonders why.[a] Instead you are only filled with sorrow. But the fact of the matter is that it is best for you that I go away, for if I don’t, the Comforter won’t come. If I do, he will—for I will send him to you.


  1. John 16:5 none wonders why, literally, “none of you is asking me whither I am going.” The question had been asked before (13:36; 14:5), but apparently not in this deeper sense.
