72:15 Long may he live! May gold from Sheba be given him. May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.
72:16 Let grain abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway. Let its fruit flourish like Lebanon; let it thrive like the grass of the field.
72:17 May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.
72:18 Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
72:19 Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen.
72:20 This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse.
14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
14:2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
14:4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
14:5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
14:7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
14:8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
14:9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
14:11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
14:12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
14:13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
14:14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command.
14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever–
14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
14:18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
14:19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
14:20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
14:21 Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.”
14:22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”
14:23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
14:24 He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
