16 “These things I have spoken to you, that youshould not be made to stumble.2 They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is comingthat whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.3 Andthese things they will do[a]to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.4 But these things I have told you, that when[b]the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them.
“And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
The Work of the Holy Spirit
5 “But now Igo away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’6 But because I have said these things to you,sorrow has filled your heart.7 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; butif I depart, I will send Him to you.8 And when He hascome, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me;10 of righteousness,because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;11 of judgment, becausethe ruler of this world is judged.
12 “I still have many things to say to you,but you cannot bear them now.13 However, when He,the Spirit of truth, has come,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 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He[c]will take of Mine and declare it to you.
