Μικρὸν καὶ οὐκέτι θεωρεῖτε με,
καὶ πάλιν μικρὸν καὶ ὄψεσθε με.
εἶπαν οὖν ἐκ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ πρὸς ἀλλήλους· τί ἐστιν τοῦτο ὃ λέγει ἡμῖν· μικρὸν καὶ οὐ θεωρεῖτε με, καὶ πάλιν μικρὸν καὶ ὄψεσθε με; καὶ ὅτι ὑπάγω πρὸς τὸν πατέρα; ἔλεγον οὖν· τί ἐστιν τοῦτο ὃ λέγει μικρόν; οὐκ οἴδαμεν τί λαλεῖ. Ἔγνω Ἰησοῦς ὅτι ἤθελον αὐτὸν ἐρωτᾶν, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· περὶ τούτου ζητεῖτε μετ’ ἀλλήλων ὅτι εἶπον· μικρὸν καὶ οὐ θεωρεῖτε με, καὶ πάλιν μικρὸν καὶ ὄψεσθε με;
ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν
ὅτι κλαύσετε καὶ θρηνήσετε ὑμεῖς,
ὁ δὲ κόσμος χαρήσεται·
ἀλλ’ ἡ λύπη ὑμῶν εἰς χαρὰν γενήσεται.
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘In a short time you will no longer see me,
and then a short time later you will see me again.’
Then some of his disciples said to one another, ‘What does he mean, “In a short time you will no longer see me, and then a short time later you will see me again” and, “I am going to the Father”? What is this “short time”? We do not know what he means.’ Jesus knew that they wanted to question him, so he said, ‘You are asking one another what I meant by saying: In a short time you will no longer see me, and then a short time later you will see me again.
‘I tell you most solemnly,
you will be weeping and wailing
while the world will rejoice;
you will be sorrowful,
but your sorrow will turn to joy.’
