Modern Literal Version
[John 14]

     {Joh 14:1-17:26 Thur. Night, Fri. to the Jews; no parallel.}

     14:1 Do not let your* heart be disturbed; you* believe in God, believe* also in me.14:2Many abodes are in my Father's house; otherwise, I would have told you*. I am traveling on to prepare a place for you*.14:3And if I travel on, I will be preparing a place for you*. I am coming again and will be receiving you* to myself; in order that where I am, you* may also be there.14:4And you*know where I am proceeding away to and you* know the way.

     14:5 Thomas says to him, Lord, we do not know where you are proceeding away to; how are we able to know the way?

     14:6 Jesus says to him, I am the way and the truth and the life; no one is coming to the Father, except through me. 14:7If you* had known me, you* would have also known my Father; from now on you* know him and have seen him.

     14:8 Philip says to him, Lord, show us the Father and it is enough for us.

     14:9 Jesus says to him, So-much time I am with you* and you have not known me Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. And how can you say this? Show us the Father. 14:10Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I say to you*, I do not speak from myself, but the Father who is abiding in me; he is doing* the works.14:11Eitherbelieve* me, that I am in the Father and the Father in me, otherwise believe* me because of the works themselves.14:12Assuredly, assuredly, I am saying to you*, He who believes in me, the works which I am doing*, he will also be doing*, and he will be doing* greater works than these, because I am traveling on to my Father. 14:13And if you* ask anything in my name, I will do* this, in order that the Father might be glorified in the Son.14:14If you* ask me anything in myname, I will do* that.14:15If you* love* me, keep* my commandments.

     14:16And I will be requesting of the Father and he will be giving you* another Helper*, in order that he may abide with you* forever, 14:17the Spirit of the truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it does not view him, nor knows him, but you* know him, because he is abiding with you* and will be in you*. 14:18I will not be leaving you* orphans. I am coming to you*. 14:19Still a little while and the world views me no more, but you* view me, because I am living, you*will also be living. 14:20 You* will know in that day that I am in my Father and you* in me and I in you*. 14:21He who holds my commandments and is keeping them, that one is he who loves* me and he who loves* me will be loved* by my Father and I will love* him and will be manifesting myself to him.

     14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) says to him, Lord, what has happened that you are about to manifest yourself to us and not to the world?

     14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves* me, he will be keeping my word and my Father will love* him, and we will be coming to him and we will be making* our abode with him. 14:24He who does not love* me, is not keeping my words.

     And the word which you* hear is not mine, but the Father's, he who sent me.

     14:25I have spoken these things to you*, while remaining with you*.14:26But the Helper*, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will be sending in my name, that one will be teaching you* all things and will be reminding you* of all things which I said to you*.14:27I am leaving peace with you*. I am giving my peace to you*; not like the world gives, I am giving to you*. Let your* heart not be disturbed, nor let it be cowardly.14:28You* heard that I said to you*, I am proceeding away and I am coming to you*. If you* loved* me, you* would have rejoiced, because I said, I am traveling on to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. 14:29And now I have spoken this to you* before it is to happen, in order that, whenever it happens, you* may believe. 14:30I will not be speaking much anymore with you*, for* the ruler of the world is coming and he has nothing in me; 14:31but in order that the world may know that I love* the Father and just-as the Father commanded me, thus I am doing*.

     Arise*, we should be proceeding from here.
