John 17

The High Priestly Prayer

When Jesus had spoken these words, a he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father b the hour has come; c glorify your Son that the Son may d glorify you, since e you have given him authority over all flesh, f to give eternal life to all g whom you have given him. h And this is eternal life i that they know you j the only k true God, and l Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I m glorified you on earth n having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father o glorify me in your own presence with the glory p that I had with you q before the world existed.

r “I have manifested your name to the people s whom you gave me out of the world. t Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything u that you have given me is from you. For I have given them v the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that w I came from you; and x they have believed that you sent me. I am praying for them. y I am not praying for the world but for those z whom you have given me, for aa they are yours. 10  ab All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and ac I am glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, but ad they are in the world, and ae I am coming to you. af Holy Father ag keep them in your name ah which you have given me ai that they may be one aj even as we are one. 12  ak While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have al guarded them, and am not one of them has been lost except an the son of destruction ao that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now ap I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have aq my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14  ar I have given them your word, and as the world has hated them at because they are not of the world au just as I am not of the world. 15 I av do not ask that you aw take them out of the world, but that you ax keep them from ay the evil one.
Or  from evil
16  ba They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17  bb Sanctify them
Greek Set them apart (for holy service to God)
in the truth; bd your word is truth.
18  be As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And bf for their sake bg I consecrate myself
Or  I sanctify myself; or  I set myself apart (for holy service to God)
that they also bi may be sanctified
Greek  may be set apart (for holy service to God)
in truth.

20 “I do not bk ask for these only, but also for those bl who will believe in me through their word, 21  bm that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that bn they also may be in bo us, so that the world bp may believe that you have sent me. 22  bq The glory that you have given me br I have given to them bs that they may be one even as we are one, 23  bt I in them and you in me bu that they may become perfectly one bv so that the world may know that you sent me and bw loved them even as bx you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be by with me bz where I am ca to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me cb before the foundation of the world. 25  cc O righteous Father, even though cd the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26  ce I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love cf with which you have loved me may be in them, and cg I in them.”
