(1) ApJas 9:9 [=SecJas 9:7-13]

/9:7/ "This is all I shall tell you at this time. Now I shall ascend to the place from which I have come. /8/ But you, when I was eager to go, have rebuffed me; and instead of accompanying me, you have chased me away. /9/ Still, pay attention to the glory that awaits me and, having opened your hearts, listen to the hymns that await me up in heaven. /10/ For today I must take my place at the right hand of my Father. I have spoken my last word to you; I shall part from you. /11/ For a chariot of spirit has lifted me up, and from now on I shall strip myself so that I may clothe myself. /12/ So pay attention: congratulations to those who proclaimed the Son before he descended, so that, having come, I might ascend. /13/ Congratulations three times over to those who [were] proclaimed by the Son before they existed, so that you might have a share with them." [Complete Gospels]
