John 16 (WEBP)
 “I have said these things to you so that you wouldn’t be caused to stumble.
 They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers service to God.
 They will do these things° because they have not known the Father nor me.
 But I have told you these things so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them. I didn’t tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you.
 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
 But because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.
 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I don’t go away, the Counselor won’t come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
 When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment;
 about sin, because they don’t believe in me;
 about righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you won’t see me any more;
 about judgment, because the prince of this world has been judged.
 “I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now.
 However, when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever he hears, he will speak. He will declare to you things that are coming.
 He will glorify me, for he will take from what is mine and will declare it to you.
 All things that the Father has are mine; therefore I said that he takes° of mine and will declare it to you.
 “A little while, and you will not see me. Again a little while, and you will see me.”
 Some of his disciples therefore said to one another, “What is this that he says to us, ‘A little while, and you won’t see me, and again a little while, and you will see me;’ and, ‘Because I go to the Father’?”
 They said therefore, “What is this that he says, ‘A little while’? We don’t know what he is saying.”
 Therefore Jesus perceived that they wanted to ask him, and he said to them, “Do you inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said, ‘A little while, and you won’t see me, and again a little while, and you will see me’?
 Most certainly I tell you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
 A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she doesn’t remember the anguish any more, for the joy that a human being is born into the world.
 Therefore you now have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.
 “In that day you will ask me no questions. Most certainly I tell you, whatever you may ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.
 Until now, you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.
 “I have spoken these things to you in figures of speech. But the time is coming when I will no more speak to you in figures of speech, but will tell you plainly about the Father.
 In that day you will ask in my name; and I don’t say to you that I will pray to the Father for you,
 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came from God.
 I came from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.”
 His disciples said to him, “Behold, now you are speaking plainly, and using no figures of speech.
 Now we know that you know all things, and don’t need for anyone to question you. By this we believe that you came from God.”
 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe?
 Behold, the time is coming, yes, and has now come, that you will be scattered, everyone to his own place, and you will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
 I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have trouble; but cheer up! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:3 TR adds “to you”
John 16:15 TR reads “will take” instead of “takes”

John 16 (KJVS)
 These things G5023 have I spoken G2980 (PerfActInd) unto you G5213, that G3363 ye should G4624 not G3363 be offended G4624 (AorPasSubj).
 They shall put G4160 (FutActInd) you G5209 out of the synagogues G656: yea G235, the time G5610 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), that G2443 whosoever G3956 killeth G615 (AorActPtc) you G5209 will think G1380 (AorActSubj) that he doeth G4374 (PresActInf) God G2316 service G2999.
 And G2532 these things G5023 will they do G4160 (FutActInd) unto you G5213, because G3754 they have G1097 not G3756 known G1097 (Aor2ActInd) the Father G3962, nor G3761 me G1691.
 But G235 these things G5023 have I told G2980 (PerfActInd) you G5213, that G2443 when G3752 the time G5610 shall come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj), ye may remember G3421 (PresActSubj) that G3754 I G1473 told G2036 (Aor2ActInd) you G5213 of them G846. And G1161 these things G5023 I said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) not G3756 unto you G5213 at G1537 the beginning G746, because G3754 I was G2252 (ImpfInd) with G3326 you G5216.
 But G1161 now G3568 I go my way G5217 (PresActInd) to G4314 him that sent G3992 (AorActPtc) me G3165; and G2532 none G3762 of G1537 you G5216 asketh G2065 (PresActInd) me G3165, Whither G4226 goest thou G5217 (PresActInd)?
 But G235 because G3754 I have said G2980 (PerfActInd) these things G5023 unto you G5213, sorrow G3077 hath filled G4137 (PerfActInd) your G5216 heart G2588.
 Nevertheless G235 I G1473 tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 the truth G225; It is expedient G4851 (PresActInd) for you G5213 that G2443 I G1473 go away G565 (Aor2ActSubj): for G1063 if G3362 I go G565 not G3362 away G565 (Aor2ActSubj), the Comforter G3875 will G2064 not G3756 come G2064 (FutMidDepInd) unto G4314 you G5209; but G1161 if G1437 I depart G4198 (AorPasDepSubj), I will send G3992 (FutActInd) him G846 unto G4314 you G5209.
 And G2532 when he is come G2064 (Aor2ActPtc), he G1565 will reprove G1651 (FutActInd) the world G2889 of G4012 sin G266, and G2532 of G4012 righteousness G1343, and G2532 of G4012 judgment G2920:
 Of G4012 sin G266, G3303 because G3754 they believe G4100 (PresActInd) not G3756 on G1519 me G1691;
 Of G4012 G1161 righteousness G1343, because G3754 I go G5217 (PresActInd) to G4314 my G3450 Father G3962, and G2532 ye see G2334 (PresActInd) me G3165 no more G3765;
 Of G4012 G1161 judgment G2920, because G3754 the prince G758 of this G5127 world G2889 is judged G2919 (PerfPasInd).
 I have G2192 (PresActInd) yet G2089 many things G4183 to say G3004 (PresActInf) unto you G5213, but G235 ye cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) bear them G941 (PresActInf) now G737.
 Howbeit G1161 when G3752 he G1565, the Spirit G4151 of truth G225, is come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj), he will guide G3594 (FutActInd) you G5209 into G1519 all G3956 truth G225: for G1063 he shall G2980 not G3756 speak G2980 (FutActInd) of G575 himself G1438; but G235 whatsoever G3745 G302 he shall hear G191 (AorActSubj), [that] shall he speak G2980 (FutActInd): and G2532 he will shew G312 (FutActInd) you G5213 things to come G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc).
 He G1565 shall glorify G1392 (FutActInd) me G1691: for G3754 he shall receive G2983 (FutMidDepInd) of G1537 mine G1699, and G2532 shall shew G312 (FutActInd) [it] unto you G5213.
 All things G3956 that G3745 the Father G3962 hath G2192 (PresActInd) are G2076 (PresInd) mine G1699: therefore G5124 G1223 said I G2036 (Aor2ActInd), that G3754 he shall take G2983 (FutMidDepInd) of G1537 mine G1699, and G2532 shall shew G312 (FutActInd) [it] unto you G5213.
 A little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall G2334 not G3756 see G2334 (PresActInd) me G3165: and G2532 again G3825, a little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) me G3165, because G3754 I G1473 go G5217 (PresActInd) to G4314 the Father G3962.
 Then G3767 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) [some] of G1537 his G846 disciples G3101 among G4314 themselves G240, What G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) this G5124 that G3739 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto us G2254, A little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall G2334 not G3756 see G2334 (PresActInd) me G3165: and G2532 again G3825, a little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) me G3165: and G2532, Because G3754 I G1473 go G5217 (PresActInd) to G4314 the Father G3962?
 They said G3004 (ImpfActInd) therefore G3767, What G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) this G5124 that G3739 he saith G3004 (PresActInd), A little while G3397? we cannot G3756 G1492 tell G1492 (PerfActInd) what G5101 he saith G2980 (PresActInd).
 Now G3767 Jesus G2424 knew G1097 (Aor2ActInd) that G3754 they were desirous G2309 (ImpfActInd) to ask G2065 (PresActInf) him G846, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Do ye enquire G2212 (PresActInd) among G3326 yourselves G240 of G4012 that G5127 G3754 I said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), A little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall G2334 not G3756 see G2334 (PresActInd) me G3165: and G2532 again G3825, a little while G3397, and G2532 ye shall see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) me G3165?
 Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, That G3754 ye G5210 shall weep G2799 (FutActInd) and G2532 lament G2354 (FutActInd), but G1161 the world G2889 shall rejoice G5463 (Fut2PasDepInd): and G1161 ye G5210 shall be sorrowful G3076 (FutPasInd), but G235 your G5216 sorrow G3077 shall be turned G1096 (FutMidDepInd) into G1519 joy G5479.
 A woman G1135 when G3752 she is in travail G5088 (PresActSubj) hath G2192 (PresActInd) sorrow G3077, because G3754 her G846 hour G5610 is come G2064 (Aor2ActInd): but G1161 as soon as G3752 she is delivered G1080 (AorActSubj) of the child G3813, she remembereth G3421 (PresActInd) no more G3765 the anguish G2347, for G1223 joy G5479 that G3754 a man G444 is born G1080 (AorPasInd) into G1519 the world G2889.
 And G2532 ye G5210 G3303 now G3568 therefore G3767 have G2192 (PresActInd) sorrow G3077: but G1161 I will see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) you G5209 again G3825, and G2532 your G5216 heart G2588 shall rejoice G5463 (Fut2PasDepInd), and G2532 your G5216 joy G5479 no man G3762 taketh G142 (PresActInd) from G575 you G5216.
 And G2532 in G1722 that G1565 day G2250 ye shall G3756 ask G2065 (FutActInd) me G1691 nothing G3762. Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 Whatsoever G3745 G302 ye shall ask G154 (AorActSubj) the Father G3962 in G1722 my G3450 name G3686, he will give G1325 (FutActInd) [it] you G5213.
 Hitherto G2193 G737 have ye asked G154 (AorActInd) nothing G3756 G3762 in G1722 my G3450 name G3686: ask G154 (PresActImpr), and G2532 ye shall receive G2983 (FutMidDepInd), that G2443 your G5216 joy G5479 may be G5600 (PresSubj) full G4137 (PerfPasPtc).
 These things G5023 have I spoken G2980 (PerfActInd) unto you G5213 in G1722 proverbs G3942: but G235 the time G5610 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), when G3753 I shall G2980 no more G3765 speak G2980 (FutActInd) unto you G5213 in G1722 proverbs G3942, but G235 I shall shew G312 (FutActInd) you G5213 plainly G3954 of G4012 the Father G3962.
 At G1722 that G1565 day G2250 ye shall ask G154 (FutMidInd) in G1722 my G3450 name G3686: and G2532 I say G3004 (PresActInd) not G3756 unto you G5213, that G3754 I G1473 will pray G2065 (FutActInd) the Father G3962 for G4012 you G5216:
 For G1063 the Father G3962 himself G846 loveth G5368 (PresActInd) you G5209, because G3754 ye G5210 have loved G5368 (PerfActInd) me G1691, and G2532 have believed G4100 (PerfActInd) that G3754 I G1473 came out G1831 (Aor2ActInd) from G3844 God G2316.
 I came forth G1831 (Aor2ActInd) from G3844 the Father G3962, and G2532 am come G2064 (Perf2ActInd) into G1519 the world G2889: again G3825, I leave G863 (PresActInd) the world G2889, and G2532 go G4198 (PresMidPasDepInd) to G4314 the Father G3962.
 His G846 disciples G3101 said G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Lo G2396, now G3568 speakest thou G2980 (PresActInd) plainly G3954, and G2532 speakest G3004 (PresActInd) no G3762 proverb G3942.
 Now G3568 are we sure G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 thou knowest G1492 (PerfActInd) all things G3956, and G2532 needest G5532 not G3756 G2192 (PresActInd) that G2443 any man G5100 should ask G2065 (PresActSubj) thee G4571: by G1722 this G5129 we believe G4100 (PresActInd) that G3754 thou camest forth G1831 (Aor2ActInd) from G575 God G2316.
 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, Do ye G4100 now G737 believe G4100 (PresActInd)?
 Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), the hour G5610 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), yea G2532, is G2064 now G3568 come G2064 (Perf2ActInd), that G2443 ye shall be scattered G4650 (AorPasSubj), every man G1538 to G1519 his own G2398, and G2532 shall leave G863 (Aor2ActSubj) me G1691 alone G3441: and yet G2532 I am G1510 (PresInd) not G3756 alone G3441, because G3754 the Father G3962 is G2076 (PresInd) with G3326 me G1700.
 These things G5023 I have spoken G2980 (PerfActInd) unto you G5213, that G2443 in G1722 me G1698 ye might have G2192 (PresActSubj) peace G1515. In G1722 the world G2889 ye shall have G2192 (PresActInd) G2192 (FutActInd) tribulation G2347: but G235 be of good cheer G2293 (PresActImpr); I G1473 have overcome G3528 (PerfActInd) the world G2889.
Young’s Literal Translation
John 16 (YLT)
 ‘These things I have spoken to you, that ye may not be stumbled,
 out of the synagogues they will put you; but an hour doth come, that every one who hath killed you, may think to offer service unto God;
 and these things they will do to you, because they did not know the Father, nor me.
 ‘But these things I have spoken to you, that when the hour may come, ye may remember them, that I said them to you, and these things to you from the beginning I did not say, because I was with you;
 and now I go away to Him who sent me, and none of you doth ask me, Whither dost thou go?
 but because these things I have said to you, the sorrow hath filled your heart.
 ‘But I tell you the truth; it is better for you that I go away, for if I may not go away, the Comforter will not come unto you, and if I go on, I will send Him unto you;
 and having come, He will convict the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment;
 concerning sin indeed, because they do not believe in me;
 and concerning righteousness, because unto my Father I go away, and no more do ye behold me;
 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world hath been judged.
 ‘I have yet many things to say to you, but ye are not able to bear them now;
 and when He may come-the Spirit of truth-He will guide you to all the truth, for He will not speak from Himself, but as many things as He will hear He will speak, and the coming things He will tell you;
 He will glorify me, because of mine He will take, and will tell to you.
 ‘All things, as many as the Father hath, are mine; because of this I said, That of mine He will take, and will tell to you;
 a little while, and ye do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go away unto the Father.’
 Therefore said some of his disciples one to another, ‘What is this that he saith to us, A little while, and ye do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me, and, Because I go away unto the Father?’
 they said then, ‘What is this he saith-the little while? we have not known what he saith.’
 Jesus, therefore, knew that they were wishing to ask him, and he said to them, ‘Concerning this do ye seek one with another, because I said, A little while, and you do not behold me, and again a little while, and ye shall see me?
 verily, verily, I say to you, that ye shall weep and lament, and the world will rejoice; and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow joy will become.
 ‘The woman, when she may bear, hath sorrow, because her hour did come, and when she may bear the child, no more doth she remember the anguish, because of the joy that a man was born to the world.
 ‘And ye, therefore, now, indeed, have sorrow; and again I will see you, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one doth take from you,
 and in that day ye will question me nothing; verily, verily, I say to you, as many things as ye may ask of the Father in my name, He will give you;
 till now ye did ask nothing in my name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
 ‘These things in similitudes I have spoken to you, but there cometh an hour when no more in similitudes will I speak to you, but freely of the Father, will tell you.
 ‘In that day, in my name ye will make request, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father for you,
 for the Father himself doth love you, because me ye have loved, and ye have believed that I from God came forth;
 I came forth from the Father, and have come to the world; again I leave the world, and go on unto the Father.’
 His disciples say to him, ‘Lo, now freely thou dost speak, and no similitude speakest thou;
 now we have known that thou hast known all things, and hast no need that any one do question thee; in this we believe that from God thou didst come forth.’
 Jesus answered them, ‘Now do ye believe? lo, there doth come an hour,
 and now it hath come, that ye may be scattered, each to his own things, and me ye may leave alone, and I am not alone, because the Father is with me;
 these things I have spoken to you, that in me ye may have peace, in the world ye shall have tribulation, but take courage-I have overcome the world.’
