Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but (A)if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has (B)come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: (C)of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 (D)of righteousness, (E)because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 (F)of judgment, because (G)the ruler of this world is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, (H)but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, (I)the Spirit of truth, has come, (J)He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 (K)He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 (L)All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He [a]will take of Mine and declare it to you.

Sorrow Will Turn to Joy
