752 THE HOLY SPIRITJohn 14,15, and 16, RSV
"I will pray the Father,
and he will give you another Counselor,
to be with you for ever,

"even the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive,
because it neither sees him nor knows him;
you know him, for he dwells with you,
and will be in you.

"I will not leave you desolate;
I will come to you."

"Nevertheless I tell you the truth:
it is to your advantage that I go away,
for if I do not go away,
the Counselor will not come to you;
but if I go, I will send him to you.
"And when he comes, he will convince
the world concerning sin and
righteousness and judgment:

"concerning sin, because they do
not believe in me; concerning righteousness,
because I go to the Father,
and you will see me no more;
concerning judgment,
because the ruler of this world is judged."

"When the Spirit of truth comes,
he will guide you into all the truth;
for he will not speak on his own authority,
but whatever he hears he will speak,
and he will declare to you
the things that are to come.

"He will glorify me,
for he will take what is mine
and declare it to you."

"But when the Counselor comes,
whom I shall send to you from the Father,...
he will bear witness to me."

"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
be will teach you all things,
and bring to your remembrance
all that I have said to you."
