John 16:8 — John 16:24
8 And when He comes, He will convict the world concerning sin and concerning righteousness and concerning judgment:
9 Concerning sin, because they do not believe into Me;
10 And concerning righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you no longer behold Me;
11 And concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
12 I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
13 But when He, the Spirit of reality, comes, He will guide you into all the reality; for He will not speak from Himself, but what He hears He will speak; and He will declare to you the things that are coming.
14 He will glorify Me, for He will receive of Mine and will declare it to you.
15 All that the Father has is Mine; for this reason I have said that He receives of Mine and will declare it to you.
16 A little while and you no longer behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me.
17 Some of His disciples then said to one another, What is this that He says to us, A little while and you do not behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me; and, Because I am going to the Father?
18 Therefore they said, What is this that He says, A little while? We do not know what He is talking about.
19 Jesus knew that they wanted to ask Him and He said to them, Are you inquiring among yourselves concerning this, that I said, A little while and you do not behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me?
20 Truly, truly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
21 A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow because her hour has come; but when she brings forth the little child, she no longer remembers the affliction because of the joy that a man has been born into the world.
22 Therefore you also now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and no one takes your joy away from you.
23 And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Truly, truly, I say to you, Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give to you.
24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be made full.
