(I)If anyone serves me, (J)the Father will honor him.

But (N)for this purpose I have come to (O)this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name.” Then (P)a voice came from heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that stood there and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, (Q)“An angel has spoken to him.” 30 Jesus answered, (R)“This voice has come for your sake, not mine. 31 (S)Now is the judgment of this world; now will (T)the ruler of this world (U)be cast out. 32 And I, (V)when I am lifted up from the earth, (W)will draw (X)all people to myself.” 33 He said this (Y)to show by what kind of death he was going to die.
