"Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
"But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’
"But now I am going away to the one who sent me, and none of you has asked me where I am going.
But now I am on my way to the One who sent me. Not one of you has asked, 'Where are you going?'
But now I am going to him who sent me; and not one of you says to me, Where are you going?
But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
"But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’

1 sn Now the theme of Jesus’ impending departure is resumed (I am going to the one who sent me). It will also be mentioned in 16:10, 17, and 28. Jesus had said to his opponents in 7:33 that he was going to the one who sent him; in 13:33 he had spoken of going where the disciples could not come. At that point Peter had inquired where he was going, but it appears that Peter did not understand Jesus’ reply at that time and did not persist in further questioning. In 14:5 Thomas had asked Jesus where he was going.
2 sn Now none of the disciples asks Jesus where he is going, and the reason is given in the following verse: They have been overcome with sadness as a result of the predictions of coming persecution that Jesus has just spoken to them in 15:18-25 and 16:1-4a. Their shock at Jesus’ revelation of coming persecution is so great that none of them thinks to ask him where it is that he is going.
