Section XLVI.

[1] 31653165    John xiv. 21.Whosoever hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me:  and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will [2] shew myself unto him.  31663166    John xiv. 22.Judas (not Iscariot) said unto him, My Lord, what is the [3] purpose of thy intention to shew thyself to us, and not to the world?  31673167    John xiv. 23.Jesus answered and said unto him, Whosoever loveth me will keep my word:  and my Father will love him, and to him will we come, and make our31683168    Lit. the (cf. Syriac versions). abode with him.  [4] 31693169    John xiv. 24.But he that loveth me not keepeth not my word:  and this word that ye hear is not my word, but the Father’s which sent me.

[5, 6] 31703170    John xiv. 25.This have I spoken unto you, while I was yet with you.  31713171    John xiv. 26.But the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything, and [7] [Arabic, p. 174] he will bring to your remembrance all that I say unto you.  31723172    John xiv. 27.Peace I leave you; my peace I give unto you:  and not as this world giveth, give I unto you.  [8] 31733173    John xiv. 28.Let your heart not be troubled,31743174    This word is quite unlike that used in § 45, 29. nor fearful.  Ye heard that I said unto you, that I go away, and come unto you.  If31753175    The Syriac form of the introductory particle is wrongly used, for in Arabic it has interrogative force. ye loved me, ye would rejoice, that I go away to my [9] Father:  for my Father is greater than I.  31763176    John xiv. 29.And now I say unto you before it come [10] to pass, that, when it cometh to pass, ye may believe me.  31773177    John xiv. 30.Now I will not speak with you much:  the Archon of the world will come, and he will have nothing in [11] me:  31783178    John xiv. 31a.but that the world may know that I love my Father, and as my Father charged me, so I do.

[12] 31793179    Luke xxii. 35.And he said unto them, When I sent you without purses, or wallets, and shoes,31803180    The first letter of the Arabic word has lost its diacritical point. [13] lacked ye perchance anything?  They said unto him, Nothing.  31813181    Luke xxii. 36.He said unto them, Henceforth, whosoever hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise the wallet also:  and whosoever hath not a sword, shall sell his garment, and buy for himself a [14] sword.  31823182    Luke xxii. 37.I say unto you, that this scripture also must be fulfilled in me, that I should be reckoned31833183    A possible rendering of the Syriac he was reckoned. with the transgressors:  for all that is said of me is fulfilled in [15] me.  31843184    Luke xxii. 38.His disciples said unto him, Our Lord, lo, here are two swords.  He said [16] unto them, They are sufficient.  31853185    John xiv. 31b; Luke xxii. 39.Arise, let us go hence.  And they arose, and praised, and went forth, and went, according to their custom, to the mount of Olives, he and his disciples.

[17] 31863186    John xv. 1.And he said unto them, I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  [18] 31873187    John xv. 2.Every branch that produceth not fruit in me, he taketh it:  and that which giveth fruit, [19] he cleanseth it, that it may give much fruit.  31883188    John xv. 3.Ye are already clean because of the word [20] that I have spoken unto you.  31893189    John xv. 4.Abide in me, and I in you.  And as the branch of the [Arabic, p. 175] vine cannot produce fruit of itself, if it be not abiding in the vine; so too ye [21] also, if ye abide not in me.  31903190    John xv. 5.I am the vine, and ye are the branches:  He then that abideth in me, and I in him, he giveth much fruit:  for without me ye cannot [22] do anything.  31913191    John xv. 6.And if a man abide not in me, he is cast without, like a withered [23] branch; and it is gathered, and cast31923192    The verbs may be active or passive, but are singular (cf. § 38, 43, note). into the fire, that it may be burned.  31933193    John xv. 7.If ye abide in me, and my word abide in you, everything that ye desire to ask shall be [24] done unto you.  31943194    John xv. 8.And herein is the Father glorified, that ye may give much fruit; [25] and ye shall be my disciples.  31953195    John xv. 9.And as my Father loved me, I loved you also:  [26] abide in my love.  31963196    John xv. 10.If ye keep my commands, ye shall abide in my love; as I have [27] kept my Father’s commands, and abode in his love.  31973197    John xv. 11.I have spoken that unto you, [28] that my joy31983198    Two words from the same root. may be in you, and your joy31993199    Two words from the same root. be fulfilled.  32003200    John xv. 12.This is my commandment, [29] that ye love one another, as I loved you.  32013201    John xv. 13.And no love is greater than this, namely, [30] that a man should give his life for his friends.  32023202    John xv. 14.Ye are my friends, if ye do all that [31] I command you.  32033203    John xv. 15.I call you not now servants; for the servant knoweth not what 115his lord doeth:  my friends have I now called you; for everything that I heard from [32] my Father I have made known unto you.  32043204    John xv. 16.Ye did not choose32053205    Different words. me, but I chose I you, and appointed you, that ye also should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should32063206    Or, shall and will, respectively. [33] abide; and that all that ye shall ask my Father in my name, he may32073207    Or, shall and will, respectively. give you.  32083208    John xv. 17.This [34] I command32093209    Or, have commanded. you, that ye love one another.  32103210    John xv. 18.And if the world hate you, know that [35] before you it hated me.  32113211    John xv. 19.If then ye were of the world, the world would love its own:  but ye are not of the world:  I chose you out of the world:  therefore the world [36] [Arabic, p. 176] hateth you.  32123212    John xv. 20.Remember the word that I said unto you, that no servant is greater than his lord.  And if they persecuted32133213    cf. § 8, 34, note. me, you also will they [37] persecute;32143214    cf. § 8, 34, note. and if they kept my word, your word also will they keep.  32153215    John xv. 21.But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, for they have not known32163216    The Arabic text (Vat.) is grammatically inaccurate, and the Borg. ms. has know not. him [38] that sent me.  32173217    John xv. 22.And if I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin:  [39] but now they have no excuse for their sins.  32183218    John xv. 23.Whosoever hateth me, also hateth my [40] Father.  32193219    John xv. 24.And if I had not done the deeds before them that no other man did, they would not have had sin:  but now they have seen and hated me and my Father [41] also:  that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their law, 32203220    John xv. 25.They hated me for [42] nothing.  32213221    John xv. 26.But when the Paraclete is come, whom I will send unto you from my Father, even the Spirit of truth, which goeth forth from my Father, he shall bear witness of [43] me:  32223222    John xv. 27.and ye also bear witness, because from the beginning ye have been with me.

[44, 45] 32233223    John xvi. 1.I have said that unto you, that ye may not stumble.32243224    Lit. sway (as one does in dozing).  32253225    John xvi. 2.And they shall put you out of their synagogues:  and there cometh an32263226    Or, the, as in Borg. ms. hour when every one that killeth [46] you shall think that he hath offered unto God an offering.  32273227    John xvi. 3.And they will do that, [47] because they do not know me, nor my Father.  32283228    John xvi. 4.I have said that unto you, so that [48] when its time is come, ye may remember it, that I told you.  32293229    John xvi. 5 [in the Greek and English verse 5 begins at But.].And this hitherto I said not unto you, because I was with you.  But32303230    In the Greek and English verse 5 begins at But. now I go unto him that sent me; and no [49] man of you asketh me whither I go.  32313231    John xvi. 6.I have said that unto you now, and grief hath [50] come and taken possession of your hearts   32323232    John xvi. 7.But I say the truth unto you; It is better32333233    Or, best. for you that I go away:  for if I go not away, the Paraclete will not come unto you; [51] [Arabic, p. 177] but if I go away, I will send him unto you.  32343234    John xvi. 8.And when he cometh, he will reprove the world for sin, and for righteousness, and for judgement:  [52, 53] for sin, 32353235    John xvi. 9.because they have not believed in me; 32363236    John xvi. 10.and for righteousness, because I go [54] to my Father; 32373237    John xvi. 11.and for judgement, because32383238    Lit. that (cf. Peshitta). the Archon of this world hath been [55] judged.  32393239    John xvi. 12.And further have I many things to speak unto you, but ye cannot tarry32403240    Or perhaps receive (them).  Possibly a Syriac d has been read r.  But Ibn-at-Tayyib in the text of his Commentary (f. 357a) has a word which perhaps might be rendered accommodate yourselves (to them) (same letters, but last two transposed), while his comment (f. 357b) gives ye cannot bear it. [56] now.  32413241    John xvi. 13.Howbeit32423242    Or, And. when the Spirit of truth is come, he will remind32433243    The Syriac words for remind and lead differ only in the length of a single stroke.  Ibn-at-Tayyib (ibid. f. 357b) almost seems to have read illumine you with, although he calls attention to the “Greek” reading. you of all the truth:  he will say nothing from himself; but everything that he heareth, that shall [57] he say:  and he shall make known unto you the things that are to be.  32443244    John xvi. 14.And he shall [58] glorify me; for from me shall he take and shew you.  32453245    John xvi. 15.All that my Father hath is mine:  therefore said I unto you, that he taketh32463246    Same tense. of mine, and shall shew32473247    Same tense. you.
