The Comforter promised. theui, tliry had not had sin: but now they have no clonk for their sin.

23 He that hateth me, haleth my Father also.

24 If I iiad not done among thein the works which none other maiutiil, they had not Iiad sin . but now have they 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 thf Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the leather, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeded! from the Father, he shall testify of me;

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.


THESE things have 1 spok
you, that 3-e should not be of-

2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think th; he doeth God service.

3 And these things will they do unt vou, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

4 But these things have I told you, that, when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you ol tbem. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

6 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

6 Butbecause I have said these things unto 3'ou,sorrow hath Ii lied your heart.

7 Nevertheless L 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 tvill send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, he will reprove tlie world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on

S. JOHN. The disciples' sorroio.

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, i/iat shall he speak; and he will nhow you things to come.

l'l He shall glorify me; for he shaft receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath re mine: therefore, said I, that he

shall take of mine, and shall show it into 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

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them

17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, A little ile, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?

IS 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

Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, 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, bu". the world shall rejoice; and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrows ehal. be turned into joy.

fomaii when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but as?o<">n as she is delivered }f the child, sheremembereth no more he anguish, for joy that a man is born nto the world.

22 And ye now therefore have sor row; but I will see you again, am your heart, shall rejoice, and your J03 no man taketh from you.

23 And in that day ye shall ask me ., nothing. Verily, verily, 1 say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, tnat your joy may be full.

25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when 1 shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I 6hall show you plainly of the Father.

J 2(3 At that day ye shall ask in my

Christ prai/ech CHAT, name: and 1 say not unto 3-011, that 1 will pray the Father for you;

'27 For the Father himself lovelh you, liccause ve have loved me, and have believed "that 1 came 01U from God.

28 1 frame.forth from the Father,aiul am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

29 IT His disci-ilea said unto him, Lo, now speakesttbou plainly, and speaker no proverb.

:;0 Now are we sure that thou know (■stall things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou earnest forth from God.

:51 Jesus answered thein, Do ye now


■VI Eehold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leav* me alone: and yet 1 am not aJune, be cause the Father is with me. 33 These things 1 have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. ) n ih« world ye shall have tribulation: I but be of good cheer; I have overtome the world.


THESK words spake Jesus, and
lifted up his eyes to heaven, and
e.u'd, Father, the hour is come; glo-
rify 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.
v> And this is life eternal, that they
might know thee the only true God,
and Jesus Christ,whom thou hast sent,
4 1 have glorified thee on the earth:
I have linished the work which thou
gavest me to do.

And now, O Father, glorify thou
ine with thine own self with the glory
which I had with thee before the
world was.
<S IT1 have manifested thy name unto
(he men which thou gavest me out of
the world: thine they were, and thou
gavest them me; and they have kept
thy word.

7 Now they have known that all things, whatsoever thou hast given me, are of thee:

t> For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me they have received lh'

iVU, fur his disciptit.

9 I pray for them: I pray not for the k'orld, but for them which thou h&pt ;iven me; for t/iey are thine.

10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

11 And now I am no more in the world ; but these are in the world.and

come to thee. Holy Father keep through thine own name, those whom thou hast given me, that they may be

l-l' While I was with them in the . world, 1 keplthcin in thy name: those that thou gavest me 1 have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scriptures might he fulfilled.

13 And now come 1 to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fullilled in themselves.

14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath haled them, because they are not of the world, even as 1

m not of the world. Id I pray not that thou shouldesttako them out of the world, but that thou shonldest keep them from the evil.

16 They are not of the world, even .3 I am not of the world.

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is" truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the i'orld, even so have I also sent them

ly And fortheirsakcsl sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20 IT Neither pray I for these alone, ibut for them also which shall believe

21 That they all may he one; as thou, Father, art in me, and 1 in thee, that they also may be one in us;

2-2 And the glory which thou gavest ne lhave given them ; that they may be one,even as we are one:

23 1 in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved Miem, a* thou hast loved nie.

24 Father,! will that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where

Cfa'isl is betrayed by Judas;

1r> O righteous Father, the hath not known thee: but I haw known thee, and these have known Hint thou hast sent me.

26 And lhave declared unto tli thy name, and will declare it; t the love wherewith thou hast loved ine may be in them, and I in them. CHAP. XVIII.

WHEN Jesus had spoken thes words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which lie entered, and his disciples.

2 And Judas also, which betrayed li'un, knew the place; lor Jesus ofti imes resorted thither with his disciples.

3 Judas then, having received band of men and officers from th chief priests and Pharisees, comet thither with lanterns, and torches,am weapons.

4 Jesus therefore.knowing all things that should come upon him, went ft>rth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

oThey answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus sailh unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him »tood with them.

6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am lie, they went backward, und fell to the ground.

7 f hen asked he them again, Whoi seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

8 Jesu3 answered, I have told y that I am lie. If therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

9 That (lie saying might be fulfilled which he spake, Of them which thou gavesl mehave L lost none.

10 Then Simon Peter, having eword, drew it, and smote the hi priest's servant, and cut off his ri< ear.The servant's name was Malchus.

11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup| which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

12IT Then the band,and the captaii and officers of the Jews, took Je9u: nnd bound him,

13And led him away to Annas first: (for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, which waa the high priest that same year.)

H Now Caiaphas was he which gave

JOHN. denied by Peter j

dient that one man should die for the people.

15TT And Simon Peter followed Jesus, uud so did another disciple. That disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the paiace of the high priest.

16 But Peter 6tood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.

17 Then saith the damsel that kept he door unto Peter, Art not thou also 'ite of this man's disciples? Hesaith,

am not.

18And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; (for it was cold ;] and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with hem, and wanned himself. 191T The high priest then asked Jesus 'of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

20 Jesus answered him, 1 spake openly to the world; 1 ever taught in •he synagogue, and in the temple, vhither the Jews always resort; and n secret have I said nothing.

21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what 1 have said

nto them: behold, they know what I said.

22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by, struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?

23 Jesus answered him, If 1 have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil:

hy smitest thou me?

24 (Now Annas had sent him bound into Caiaphas the high priest.)

25 And Simon Peterstood and warmmself. They said therefore unto Art not thou also one of his

lisciples? He denied it, and said, 1 in not.

26 One of the sdvants of the high priest (being his kinsman whose ear ^eter cut off)saith, Did not I see thee n the garden with him?

27 Peter then denied again ; and immediately the cock crew.

23 U Then led they Jesus from Caiaunlo the hall of judgment: and as early; and they themselves went not into the judgment-hall, lest "ley 6hould be defiled; but that they ight oat the passover,

Christ brought to Pilate, CHAP, cjid said, What accusation bring ye, 9gamst this man?

30 They answered and said unto him, IT he were not a malelhctor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

31 Then said Pilate unto them. Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:

3-2 That the saying of Jesus mightbej fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.

33 Then Pilalc entered into the jud^ ment-hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

34 Jesus answered him, Savest thou this tiling of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thiae own nalion, and the chiel priests, have delivered Uiee unto me: what hast thoti done?

35 Jesus answered, My kingdoi not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants tight, that I should not be delivered to tl)H Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. I

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou akmgthen? Jesusnnswered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this! end was ! born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone lhat is of the truth, health my voice.

33 Pilate saith unto him, What isl truth? And when h<> had said this,lie went out again unto the Jew< saith unto them, 1 find in him no fault! at all.

3v) But ye have a custom, that I shou Id release unto you one at thepassover: will ye therefore that I release unto| you the King of the Jews?

40 Then cried they all again, saying,j Not this man, but Barabbas. Now liaraubas was a robber.


THEN Pilate therefore took Jesus,! and scourged him.!

2 And the soldiers platted acrown of! thorns, and put it on his head, and tbey ,)ut on him a purple robe.

3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! And tbey smote him with theirhands.

■1 IT Pilate therefore went forth again, ndsailh unto them, Behold, 1 bring

. XIX. is condemned and crucified.
him forth to you, lhat ye may know
that 1 lind no fault in him.
6 Then came Jesus forth, wearing
the crown of thorns, and the purple
robe. And Pilate saith unto them,
Behold the man!

6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take "ye him, and crucify Aim; for I find no fault in him.

7 The Jewsanswered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made lu'rnself the Son of God.

8 TT When Pilate therefore beard that saying, he was the more afraid;

9 And went again into the judgmenthall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then saith Pi Jute unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? kuowest thou not that 1 have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power ax all against me, except it were given thee from above; therefore he "that delivered '.no unto thee hath the greater sin.

1-2 And from thenceforth Pilate ought to release him; but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Cesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketb against Cesar.

13 IT When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment-seat, in a ptace that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

15 But they cried out, Away with Aim, away with Aim, crucify him. Pilate saifhunU. them, Shall 1 crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar.

16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucilied. And tbey took Jesus, and led him away.

17 TT And he bearing his cross, went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha:

18 Where tbey crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst

Jesus dies, 5. JOHN,

19 IT And Pilate wrote a title, find r>ut it on the cross. And the writing was, JKSUSOF NA'ZARETHTHF KING OF THE JEWS.

20 Thij title then read man3- of the! Jews; for the place where Jesus was! crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, OM-ii Latin. )

21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King! of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

23 IT Then the soldiers, when they .had crucified Jesus,took, his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also Ms coat: now the coat was without seaai, woven from tlie top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves, let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose itshall be: that the scriplure might he fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, mid for my vesture I1k\v did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

2o IT Now there stood by the cross of' Jesus, his mother, and his mother's! Ri;5ter,Mary the wife of Cleophas,and Mary Magdalene.

26" When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son 1

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that, disciple took her unto his own

23 TT After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, sviith, I thirst.

29 Now there was seta vessel full of vinegar-, and they filled a spunge with M'negar, and put it upon 113'esop, and put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31 1T The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies phould not remain upon the cross on 1 lie sabbath-day, (for that sabbath-day was a high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and tMit Ihe.y aught be taken away.

32 Then came the sold iers. and brake_

u buried/ rftes he legs of the first, and of the olner vhicli was crucified with him. 33 But when llwy came to Jesus.and aw that he was dead already, dioy brake not his legs.3-1 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true; and he know th that he saith true, that ye might lelieve.

36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A ')One of him shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

3S TT And after this, Joseph of Arimathea, (being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews,) besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave//iw! 'eave. He came therefore, and took he body of Jesus.

39 And there came also Nicodemu*, (which at the first came to Jesus by light,) and brought a mixture of nyrrh arid aloes, about a hundred lounds weight.

40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the

pices, as the manner of the Jews is o bury.

•11 Now m the place where he was rrucilied there was a garden; and in he garden a new sepulchre, wherein

THE first day of the week comclh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

2 Then she runneth, and cometb to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple vhom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where thej' have laid Jiiin.

3 Peter therefore went, forth, and that other disciple, and came to the [sepulchre.

4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
