1 John 14:21 Whosoever has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will 2 show myself unto him. John 14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, My Lord, what is the 3 purpose of your intention to show yourself to us, and not to the world? John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, Whosoever loves me will keep my word: and my Father will love him, and to him will we come, and make our abode with him. 4 John 14:24 But he that loves me not keeps not my word: and this word that you hear is not my word, but the Father's which sent me.
5, 6 John 14:25 This have I spoken unto you, while I was yet with you. John 14:26 But the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything, and 7 [Arabic, p. 174] he will bring to your remembrance all that I say unto you. John 14:27 Peace I leave you; my peace I give unto you: and not as this world gives, give I unto you. 8 John 14:28 Let your heart not be troubled, nor fearful. You heard that I said to you, that I go away, and come unto you. If ye loved me, you would rejoice, that I go away to my 9 Father: for my Father is greater than I. John 14:29 And now I say unto you before it come 10 to pass, that, when it comes to pass, you may believe me. John 14:30 Now I will not speak with you much: the Archon of the world will come, and he will have nothing in 11 me: John 14:31a but that the world may know that I love my Father, and as my Father charged me, so I do.
12 Luke 22:35 And he said to them, When I sent you without purses, or wallets, and shoes, 13 lacked ye perchance anything? They said to him, Nothing. Luke 22:36 He said to them, Henceforth, whosoever has a purse, let him take it, and likewise the wallet also: and whosoever has not a sword, shall sell his garment, and buy for himself a 14 sword. Luke 22:37 I say unto you, that this scripture also must be fulfilled in me, that I should be reckoned with the transgressors: for all that is said of me is fulfilled in 15 me. Luke 22:38 His disciples said to him, Our Lord, lo, here are two swords. He said 16 unto them, They are sufficient. Arise, let us go hence. And they arose, and praised, and went forth, and went, according to their custom, to the mount of Olives, he and his disciples.
17 John 15:1 And he said to them, I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 18 John 15:2 Every branch that produces not fruit in me, he takes it: and that which gives fruit, 19 he cleanses it, that it may give much fruit. John 15:3 You are already clean because of the word 20 that I have spoken unto you. John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. And as the branch of the [Arabic, p. 175] vine cannot produce fruit of itself, if it be not abiding in the vine; so too ye 21 also, if you abide not in me. John 15:5 I am the vine, and you are the branches: He then that abides in me, and I in him, he gives much fruit: for without me ye cannot 22 do anything. John 15:6 And if a man abide not in me, he is cast without, like a withered 23 branch; and it is gathered, and cast into the fire, that it may be burned. John 15:7 If you abide in me, and my word abide in you, everything that you desire to ask shall be 24 done unto you. John 15:8 And herein is the Father glorified, that you may give much fruit; 25 and you shall be my disciples. John 15:9 And as my Father loved me, I loved you also: 26 abide in my love. John 15:10 If you keep my commands, you shall abide in my love; as I have 27 kept my Father's commands, and abode in his love. John 15:11 I have spoken that unto you, 28 that my joy may be in you, and your joy be fulfilled. John 15:12 This is my commandment, 29 that you love one another, as I loved you. John 15:13 And no love is greater than this, namely, 30 that a man should give his life for his friends. John 15:14 You are my friends, if you do all that 31 I command you. John 15:15 I call you not now servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: my friends have I now called you; for everything that I heard from 32 my Father I have made known unto you. John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose I you, and appointed you, that you also should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should 33 abide; and that all that you shall ask my Father in my name, he may give you. John 15:17 This 34 I command you, that you love one another. John 15:18 And if the world hate you, know that 35 before you it hated me. John 15:19 If then you were of the world, the world would love its own: but you are not of the world: I chose you out of the world: therefore the world 36 [Arabic, p. 176] hates you. John 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, that no servant is greater than his lord. And if they persecuted me, you also will they 37 persecute; and if they kept my word, your word also will they keep. John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, for they have not known him 38 that sent me. John 15:22 And if I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: 39 but now they have no excuse for their sins. John 15:23 Whosoever hates me, also hates my 40 Father. John 15:24 And if I had not done the deeds before them that no other man did, they would not have had sin: but now they have seen and hated me and my Father 41 also: that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their law, John 15:25 They hated me for 42 nothing. John 15:26 But when the Paraclete has come, whom I will send unto you from my Father, even the Spirit of truth, which goes forth from my Father, he shall bear witness of 43 me: John 15:27 and you also bear witness, because from the beginning ye have been with me.
44, 45 John 16:1 I have said that unto you, that you may not stumble. John 16:2 And they shall put you out of their synagogues: and there comes an hour when every one that kills 46 you shall think that he has offered unto God an offering. John 16:3 And they will do that, 47 because they do not know me, nor my Father. John 16:4 I have said that unto you, so that 48 when its time has come, you may remember it, that I told you. And this hitherto I said not unto you, because I was with you. But now I go unto him that sent me; and no 49 man of you asks me whither I go. John 16:6 I have said that unto you now, and grief has 50 come and taken possession of your hearts John 16:7 But I say the truth unto you; It is better for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Paraclete will not come unto you; 51 [Arabic, p. 177] but if I go away, I will send him unto you. John 16:8 And when he comes, he will reprove the world for sin, and for righteousness, and for judgement: 52, 53 for sin, John 16:9 because they have not believed in me; John 16:10 and for righteousness, because I go 54 to my Father; John 16:11 and for judgement, because the Archon of this world has been 55 judged. John 16:12 And further have I many things to speak unto you, but you cannot tarry 56 now. John 16:13 Howbeit when the Spirit of truth has come, he will remind you of all the truth: he will say nothing from himself; but everything that he hears, that shall 57 he say: and he shall make known unto you the things that are to be. John 16:14 And he shall 58 glorify me; for from me shall he take and show you. John 16:15 All that my Father has is mine: therefore said I unto you, that he takes of mine, and shall show you.
