“Peace I leave with you,

my peace I give unto you:

not as the world giveth,

give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,

neither let it be afraid.

In my Father’s house

are many mansions:

if it were not so,

I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go

and prepare a place for you,

I will come again,

and receive you unto myself;

that where I am,

there ye may be also.

And whither I go ye know,

and the way ye know.

Peace I leave with you,

My peace I give unto you.”


John 14:27, 2-4
