18 “I will not leave you as orphans; (A)I am coming to you. 19 [a](B)After a little while, (C)the world no longer is going to see Me, but you are going to see Me; (D)because I live, you also will live. 20 (E)On that day you will know that (F)I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I in you. 21 (G)The one who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and (H)the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will (I)reveal Myself to him.” 22 (J)Judas (not Iscariot) *said to Him, “Lord, what has happened (K)that You are going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered and said to him, (L)If anyone loves Me, he will (M)follow My word; and (N)My Father will love him, and We (O)will come to him and make Our dwelling with him. 24 The one who does not love Me (P)does not follow My words; and (Q)the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.

Jesus’ Death and Resurrection Foretold

16 (A)A little while, and (B)you no longer are going to see Me; and again a little while, and (C)you will see Me.” 17 So some of His disciples said to one another, “What is this that He is telling us, (D)A little while, and you are not going to see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because (E)I am going to the Father’?” 18 So they were saying, “What is this that He says, ‘A little while’? We do not know what He is talking about.” 19 (F)Jesus knew that they wanted to question Him, and He said to them, “Are you deliberating together about this, that I said, ‘A little while, and you are not going to see Me, and again a little while, and you will see Me’? 20 Truly, truly I say to you that (G)you will weep and mourn, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but (H)your grief will be turned into joy! 21 (I)Whenever a woman is in labor she has [a]pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a [b]child has been born into the world. 22 Therefore (J)you too have grief now; but (K)I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one is going to take your joy away from you.

Prayer Promises

23 And (L)on that day (M)you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly I say to you, (N)if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. 24 (O)Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your (P)joy may be made full.
