You have pain now.
But I will see you again.
Will take your joy
καὶ ὑμεῖς οὖν νῦν μὲν λύπην ἔχετε· πάλιν δὲ ὄψομαι ὑμᾶς, καὶ χαρήσεται ὑμῶν ἡ καρδία, καὶ τὴν χαρὰν ὑμῶν οὐδεὶς αἴρει ἀφ’ ὑμῶν.
John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that they would have pain or grief now (καὶ ὑμεῖς οὖν νῦν μὲν λύπην ἔχετε), but that he would see them (δὲ ὄψομαι ὑμᾶς) again (πάλιν). Then their hearts (ὑμῶν ἡ καρδία) would rejoice (καὶ χαρήσεται). No one (οὐδεὶς) would be able to take away their joy (καὶ τὴν χαρὰν ὑμῶν) from them (ἀφ’ ὑμῶν). Jesus warned his disciples that they would be in pain now, but he was going to return and see them. Then they would rejoice, because no one could take away their joy, since it would be everlasting, not just a little while. The joy of childbirth was a foretaste of eternal joy. When did you have the most joy in your life?
