John 16:12-14 (American Standard Version)

I [Jesus] have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now.

[Be it as it may,] when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it to you.
