|Psalm 144:10-13,21 ©|
Εἰρήνην ἀφίημι ὑμῖν εἰρήνην τὴν ἐμὴν δίδωμι ὑμῖν.
οὐ καθὼς ὁ κόσμος δίδωσιν
ἐγὼ δίδωμι ὑμῖν.
μὴ ταρασσέσθω ὑμῶν ἡ καρδία μηδὲ δειλιάτω.
ἠκούσατε ὅτι ἐγὼ εἶπον ὑμῖν· ὑπάγω καὶ ἔρχομαι πρὸς ὑμᾶς.
εἰ ἠγαπᾶτε με ἐχάρητε ἂν ὅτι πορεύομαι πρὸς τὸν πατέρα,
ὅτι ὁ πατὴρ μείζων μου ἐστιν.
καὶ νῦν εἴρηκα ὑμῖν πρὶν γενέσθαι,
ἵνα ὅταν γένηται πιστεύσητε.
οὐκέτι πολλὰ λαλήσω μεθ’ ὑμῶν,
ἔρχεται γὰρ ὁ τοῦ κόσμου ἄρχων·
καὶ ἐν ἐμοὶ οὐκ ἔχει οὐδέν,
ἀλλ’ ἵνα γνῷ ὁ κόσμος
ὅτι ἀγαπῶ τὸν πατέρα
καὶ καθὼς ἐντολὴν ἔδωκεν μοι ὁ πατήρ, οὕτως ποιῶ.
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you,
a peace the world cannot give,
this is my gift to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me say: I am going away, and shall return.
If you loved me you would have been glad to know that I am going to the Father,
for the Father is greater than I.
I have told you this now before it happens,
so that when it does happen you may believe.
I shall not talk with you any longer,
because the prince of this world is on his way.
He has no power over me,
but the world must be brought to know
that I love the Father
and that I am doing exactly what the Father told me.’
