Peter, therefore, beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. 25 He then, lying on Jesus’ breast, saith linto him, Lord, who is it : 26 Jesús answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simoil. 27 And after the sop Satan en

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. 36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou ?

T ET not your hearts be troubled : ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to preparea place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; . where I am, there ye may be O. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way : 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8 is Philipsaithunto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. - t 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and ret hast thou not known me, hilip 2 he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father 10 Believest thou not, that I

Even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him : but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; butye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20. At that day ye shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. o 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me; and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, (not

word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with yOu. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27 | Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you : not as the world giveth, give I untoyou. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you : for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and
as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence. CHAP. XV. Christ's love to his members. I AM the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman, 2 Every branch in methat beareth not fruit, he taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are cleanthrough the word which I have spoken unto you. . . . . . 4 Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more canye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abidethin me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9 As the Fatherhath loved me, so have I loved you: continueye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that myjoy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12's Thisis mycommandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. o 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth : but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father, I have made known unto yOll.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but Aersecution foretold. Chap.
I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another. 18 "I If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. . 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not ter than his lord. If they ave persecuted me, they will also persecute you : if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours' also. 21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22 If I had not come, and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23 He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. 24If I had not doneamong them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 26 || But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. CHAP. XVI. The Holy Ghost promised. HESE things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues; yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doeth God serVICC. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But these things have I told you, that, when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5 T. But now Igormy way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou ? 6 But, because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you ; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And, when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Ofsin; because they believe not On me : 19 Of righteousness; because I go to my Father, and yesee me In O In Ore : 11 Of judgment; because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit, when he, the SpiComfort against Š. rit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 16 T A little while, and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: because I go to the Father. 17. Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me; and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father ? 18 They said, therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while 2 we cannot tell what he saith. 19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not See me; and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? 20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into JOy. - 21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come : but, as soon as she is delivered of the child, she reembereth no more the anguish, o that a man is born into the world. 22 Andye now, therefore, have
sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. 23 And in that day ye j: me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh when I shall no more Speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. - 26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, That I will pray the Father for you :

eth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29's His disciplessaid untohim, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. 31 Jesus answered them, Doye now believe : 32 Behold, the hour cometh yea, is now come, that ye shali be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone : and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
