OET (OET-RV) He was talking about God’s spirit that the ones who trust him would receive in the future—not yet because Yeshua hadn’t been lifted up to heaven yet.

OET-LVBut he_said this concerning the spirit, of_whom they_were_going to_be_receiving, the ones having_believed on him, because/for the_spirit was not_yet, because Yaʸsous was_glorified not_yet.

SR-GNTΤοῦτο δὲ εἶπεν περὶ τοῦ ˚Πνεύματος, οὗ ἔμελλον λαμβάνειν, οἱ πιστεύσαντες εἰς αὐτόν· οὔπω γὰρ ἦν ˚Πνεῦμα, ὅτι ˚Ἰησοῦς οὐδέπω ἐδοξάσθη. 
   (Touto de eipen peri tou ˚Pneumatos, hou emellon lambanein, hoi pisteusantes eis auton; oupō gar aʸn ˚Pneuma, hoti ˚Yaʸsous oudepō edoxasthaʸ.)

T4T When Jesus said that, he was referring to God’s Spirit, whom those who believed in Jesus would receive later. Up to that time God had not sent the Spirit to live within believers, because Jesus had not yet died and returned to his glorious home in heaven, from where he would send the Spirit.

?:? A few manuscripts supply the participle “given” here; while it is unlikely this represents the original reading, many English versions nevertheless supply “given” to avoid the impression that the Spirit did not exist prior to this point

BBE This he said of the Spirit which would be given to those who had faith in him: the Spirit had not been given then, because the glory of Jesus was still to come.

7.39 Nondum enim, etc. Et si prophetæ acceperunt eumdem spiritum: et Joannes et alii ante resurrectionem Christi; tamen erat alius modus donationis futurus apertior et plenior: post resurrectionem enim, quando primum apparuit apostolis, insufflavit in faciem eorum, qui flatu primo homini animam indidit, et de limo erexit. Significans ergo se esse eumdem, insufflavit spiritum apostolis, ut de luto exsurgerent. Deinde post ascensionem plenius Spiritum misit in igneis linguis, ut omnes gentes docerent, sicut illi tunc omnibus linguis: sic nunc unitas Ecclesiæ loquitur omnibus linguis, a qua unitate præcisus non habet spiritum. Quia Jesus nondum erat glorificatus, etc. Ex illa ergo turba, etc. Postquam autem baptizantur Spiritu sancto, et effunditur gratia Spiritus sancti in eis; tunc libere loquuntur ad principes Judæorum: Oportet obedire magis Deo quam hominibus Act. 5.: mortuos suscitant, inter flagella lætantur, sanguinem fundunt, et aliis suppliciis coronantur. Nondum ergo erat Spiritus in apostolis, nec de ventre eorum fluebant gratiæ spirituales: quia nondum fuerat Dominus glorificatus.


7.39 Nondum because, etc. And when/but_if prophetæ acceperunt eumdem spiritum: and Yoannes and alii ante resurrectionem Christi; tamen was alius modus donationis futurus apertior and plenior: after resurrectionem because, when primum apparuit apostolis, insufflavit in faciem eorum, who flatu primo homini animam indidit, and about limo erexit. Significans ergo se esse eumdem, insufflavit spiritum apostolis, as about luto exsurgerent. Godnde after ascensionem plenius Spiritum misit in igneis linguis, as everyone gentes docerent, like illi tunc omnibus linguis: so now unitas Ecclesiæ loquitur omnibus linguis, a which unitate præcisus not/no habet spiritum. Quia Yesus nondum was glorificatus, etc. Ex illa ergo turba, etc. Postquam however baptizantur Spiritu sancto, and effunditur gratia Spiritus sancti in eis; tunc libere loquuntur to principes Yudæorum: Oportet obedire magis Deo how hominibus Act. 5.: mortuos suscitant, between flagella lætantur, sanguinem fundunt, and aliis suppliciis coronantur. Nondum ergo was Spiritus in apostolis, but_not about ventre eorum fluebant gratiæ spirituales: because nondum fuerat Master glorificatus.

TSNTyndale Study Notes:

7:39 In Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, his life and the Spirit were poured out (see 19:34; 20:22).


UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: writing-background

General Information:

In this verse John gives information to clarify what Jesus was talking about in the previous verse. Use the natural form in your language for expressing background information.

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

οὔπω & ἦν Πνεῦμα

not_yet & was /the/_Spirit

John implies here that the Spirit would later come to dwell in those who trusted in Jesus. If it would be helpful to your readers, you could state this explicitly. Alternate translation: “the Spirit had not yet come to dwell in the believers”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

οὐδέπω ἐδοξάσθη

not_yet /was/_glorified

Here the word glorified could refer to: (1) the time when Jesus would die on the cross and rise from the dead (See: John 12:23). Alternate translation: “had not yet been crucified and resurrected” (2) the time when Jesus would ascend to his Father in heaven. Acts 1–2 records the Holy Spirit coming after Jesus went up to heaven. Alternate translation: “had not yet returned to God in glory” (3) both the crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus. Alternate translation: “had not yet been glorified by his death, resurrection, and return to heaven” See the discussion of double meaning in Part 3 of the Introduction to the Gospel of John.
