Ὅταν ἔλθῃ ὁ παράκλητος
ὃν ἐγὼ πέμψω ὑμῖν παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς,
τὸ πνεῦμα τῆς ἀληθείας ὁ παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ἐκπορεύεται,
ἐκεῖνος μαρτυρήσει περὶ ἐμοῦ·
καὶ ὑμεῖς δὲ μαρτυρεῖτε,
ὅτι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς μετ’ ἐμοῦ ἐστε.
Ταῦτα λελάληκα ὑμῖν ἵνα μὴ σκανδαλισθῆτε.
ἀπο συναγώγους ποιήσουσιν ὑμᾶς·
ἀλλ’ ἔρχεται ὥρα ἵνα πᾶς ὁ ἀποκτείνας ὑμᾶς
δόξῃ λατρείαν προσφέρειν τῷ θεῷ.
καὶ ταῦτα ποιήσουσιν
ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνωσαν
τὸν πατέρα οὐδὲ ἐμέ.
ἀλλὰ ταῦτα λελάληκα ὑμῖν
ἵνα ὅταν ἔλθῃ ἡ ὥρα αὐτῶν
μνημονεύητε αὐτῶν ὅτι ἐγὼ εἶπον ὑμῖν.
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘When the Advocate comes,
whom I shall send to you from the Father,
the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father,
he will be my witness.
And you too will be witnesses,
because you have been with me from the outset.
‘I have told you all this that your faith may not be shaken.
They will expel you from the synagogues,
and indeed the hour is coming
when anyone who kills you
will think he is doing a holy duty for God.
They will do these things
because they have never known
either the Father or myself.
But I have told you all this,
so that when the time for it comes
you may remember that I told you.’
