1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all
together in one place.
2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a
violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house
where they were sitting.

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper,
that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him
or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you
