15 “If you love Me,[a]keep My commandments.16 And I will pray the Father, andHe will give you another[b]Helper, that He may abide with you forever—17 the Spirit of truth,whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with youand will be in you.18 I will not leave you orphans;I will come to you.
Indwelling of the Father and the Son
19 “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, butyou will see Me.Because I live, you will live also.20 At that day you will know thatI am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and[c]manifest Myself to him.”
22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him,and We will come to him and make Our home with him.24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; andthe word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
The Gift of His Peace
25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.26 Butthe[d]Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father willsend in My name,He will teach you all things, and bring to yourremembrance all things that I said to you.27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.28 You have heard Mesay to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because[e]I said,‘I am going to the Father,’ forMy Father is greater than I.
29 “Andnow I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe.30 I will no longer talk much with you,for the ruler of this world is coming, and he hasnothing in Me.31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, andas the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
