John 17

CHAPTER 17

Jesus' Prayer

These things Jesus spoke, and lifted up his eyes unto the heaven, and said, O father, [3has come 1the 2hour]; glorify your son! that also your son should glorify you. As you gave to him authority over all flesh, that all whom you have given to him, he gives to them life eternal. And this is the eternal life, that they should know you the only true God, and [3whom 4you sent 1Jesus 2Christ]. I glorified you upon the earth; [2the 3work 1I perfected] which you have given to me that I should do. And now [2glorify 3me 1you], O father, with [3of yourself 1the 2glory]! which I had [3before 4the 5world 6being in existence 1with 2you]. I made manifest your name to the men whom you have given to me from out of the world. They were yours, and [2them to me 1you have given]; and your word they have given heed. Now they have known that all things, as many as you have given to me, [2from 3you 1are]. For the words which you have given to me, I have given to them; and they received, and they know truly that from you I came forth, and they believed that you sent me. I [2concerning 3them 1ask]; not concerning the world do I ask, but concerning whom you have given to me; for they are yours. 10 And the ones mine [2all 3yours 1are]; and the ones yours mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11 And no longer am I in the world, but these [2in 3the 4world 1are], and I [2to 3you 1come]. [2father 1O holy], keep them in your name! the ones whom you have given to me, that they might be one, as we. 12 When I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name; whom you have given to me I guarded, and not one of them perished, except the son of destruction; that the scripture should be fulfilled. 13 And now to you I come, and these things I speak in the world, that they should have [2joy 1my] having been filled in them. 14 I have given to them your word; and the world detested them, for they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 15 I ask not that you should take them from out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. 16 [2of 3the 4world 1They are not], as I [2of 3the 4world 1am not]. 17 Sanctify them in your truth! [2word 1Your] is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I also send them into the world. 19 And for them I sanctify myself, that also they might be ones having been sanctified in truth. 20 [3not 4for 5these 1And 2I ask] only, but also for the ones believing [3through 4their word 1in 2me]; 21 that all might be one; as you, O father, are in me, and I in you, that also they in us might be one; that the world should believe that you sent me. 22 And I [3the 4glory 5which 6you have given 7to me 1have given 2to them], that they should be one, as we are one. 23 I in them, and you in me, that they should be perfected into one; and that [3should know 1the 2world] that you sent me, and loved them, as you loved me. 24 O father, whom you have given to me, I want that where I am, also those should be with me; that they should view [2glory 1my], which you gave to me; for you loved me before the founding of the world. 25 [2father 1O Righteous], even the world [3you 1did not 2know], but I knew you, and these knew that you sent me. 26 And I made known to them your name, and I will make it known; that the love which you loved me [2in 3them 1should be], and I in them.
