    Definitions for John 16:5

    Whither - Where; which place.

    Clarke's Commentary on John 16:5

    None of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? - In John 13:3, Peter had asked, Lord, thither goest thou? - and Thomas much the same in John 14:5, both of whom had received an answer. But now, at the time when Jesus was speaking this, none of them asked this question, because their hearts were filled with sorrow: John 16:6.

    Barnes' Notes on John 16:5

    Now I go my way - Now I am about to die and leave you, and it is proper to announce all these things to you.

    None of you asketh me ... - They gave themselves up to grief instead of inquiring why he was about to leave them. Had they made the inquiry, he was ready to answer them and to comfort them. When we are afflicted we should not yield ourselves to excessive grief. We should inquire why it is that God thus tries us; and we should never doubt that if we come to him, and spread out our sorrows before him, he will give us consolation.

    Wesley's Notes on John 16:5

    16:5 None of you asketh me - Now when it is most seasonable. Peter did ask this before, John 13:36.
