14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.' 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father and he shall give you an other Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 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 ; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and be 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 Iscariot,) Lord, how is it that thou wilt nianifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world ?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we ' will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings : and the 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. 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 unto you. 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.
: LESSON LXVIII.
John, Chap. 15.'
2 Every branch in me that 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 clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 'Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches : he that abideth in 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. As the Father hath loved me, sę lrave I loved you : continue ye 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 my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love liath 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 ye not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called vou friends ; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. : 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and or
dained 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 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 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 greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your's 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 cloke for their sin.
23 He that hatcih nie hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other men did, they had not had sin: but now they have 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 of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
John, Chap. 16. These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues : yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 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 But now I go my way to him that sent; me and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou ? 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 Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righiteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no inore; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit 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. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of inine, 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 shew it upto you.
16 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 ser me: and again a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Beo cause I go to the Father ?
18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while ? we cannot tell what he saith.
19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little wbile, 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 chili, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketi. from you.
23 And in that day ye shall ask 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 ny name: ask, anc. 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 pro verbs, 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 :
· 27 For the Father himself loveth 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 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now are we sure that thou knowést all things, anc: needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe ?
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall 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. In the world ye shall have tribulation : but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
: ; Jolin, Chap. 17. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee.
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the ..only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
4. I have glorified thee on earth : I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world : thine they were, and thou gavest them nie: and they have kept thy word.
ī Now they have known that all things, whatsoevor thou wast given me, are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And alt mine are thine, and thine are mine : and I am glorified in them.
