17:1 These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven,
and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy
Son also may glorify thee:
17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should
give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
17:3 And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only
true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the
work which thou gavest me to do.
17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thy ownself, with
the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
17:6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest to
me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to
me; and they have kept thy word.
17:7 Now they have known that all things whatever thou hast
given me are from thee.
17:8 For I have given to them the words which thou gavest me;
and they have received [them], and have known surely that I
came from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them
whom thou hast given to me; for they are thine.
17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am
glorified in them.
17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the
world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thy own
name those whom thou hast given to me, that they may be one, as
17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy
name: those that thou gavest to me I have kept, and none of
them is lost but the son of perdition; that the scripture might
17:13 And now I come to thee, and these things I speak in the
world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
17:14 I have given to them thy word; and the world hath hated
them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of
17:15 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world,
but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil.
17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also
sent them into the world.
17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may
be sanctified through the truth.
17:20 Neither pray I for these alone; but for them also who
shall believe on me through their word.
17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me,
and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world
may believe that thou hast sent me.
17:22 And the glory which thou gavest to me, I have given to
them; that they may be one, even as we are one.
17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect
in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and
hast loved them as thou hast loved me.
17:24 Father, I will that they also whom thou hast given to me
be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou
hast given to me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of
17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I
have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
17:26 And I have declared to them thy name, and will declare
[it]: that the love with which thou hast loved me, may be in
them, and I in them.
