John 16:23

Context
16:23 At that time 1  you will ask me nothing. I tell you the solemn truth, 2  whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. 3 

John 16:26-27

Context
16:26 At that time 4  you will ask in my name, and I do not say 5  that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 16:27 For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. 6 

1 tn Grk “And in that day.”

2 tn Grk “Truly, truly, I say to you.”

3 sn This statement is also found in John 15:16.

4 tn Grk “In that day.”

5 tn Grk “I do not say to you.”

6 tc A number of early mss (א1 B C* D L pc co) read πατρός (patros, “Father”) here instead of θεοῦ (qeou, “God”; found in Ì5 א*,2 A C3 W Θ Ψ 33 Ë1,13 Ï). Although externally πατρός has relatively strong support, it is evidently an assimilation to “I came from the Father” at the beginning of v. 28, or more generally to the consistent mention of God as Father throughout this chapter (πατήρ [pathr, “Father”] occurs eleven times in this chapter, while θεός [qeos, “God”] occurs only two other times [16:2, 30]).
