New Testament

John Chapter 16


"Be warned by my speech! The time comes when whoever
Kills you'll think he does God service - such know neither
The Father, nor me. These parting words sadden your heart,
But the Comforter won't come unless I depart,
Who'll reprove the world of sin, righteousness, judgement,
And show you all truth, not speaking of self, content
To exalt me. A short while, and you won't see me,
Again, a little while, and you will, since I'll be
With the Father." The disciples could not follow
These words, so Jesus said "You'll weep and have sorrow,
Then joy; like a mother's travail for boy or girl.
Pray, ask, receive! Have peace - I've overcome the world."
