John 17

Jesus spoke these words; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, said, Father, the hour has come; glorify thy Son, in order that the Son may glorify thee: as thou didst give Him authority over all flesh, in order that whatsoever thou hast given unto Him, He may give unto them eternal life. But this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou didst send. I glorified thee upon the earth, having finished the work that thou hast given to me that I may do it. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name, to the men whom thou didst give me out of the world. They were thine, and thou didst give them to me; and they have kept thy word: now they know that all things so many as thou hast given to me are with thee: because the words which thou didst give me I have given unto them; and they received them, and they know truly that I came out from thee, and they believed that thou didst send me. I pray for these: I pray not for the world; but for those whom thou hast given me, because they are thine: 10 and all mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I have been glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, and they are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them through my name whom thou hast given unto me, in order that they may be one, as we are. 12 When I was with them, I was keeping them in thy name whom thou hast given unto me. And I guarded them, and no one of them perished, except the son of perdition; that the Scripture may be fulfilled. 13 And now I come to thee; and speak these things in the world, that they may have my joy complete in themselves. 14 I have given unto them thy word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that you may take them out of the world, but that you may keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through the truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou didst send me into the world, I also sent them into the world: 19 and I sanctify myself in their behalf, in order that they may also be sanctified through the truth. 20 And I not only pray for these, but also for those believing on me through their word; 21 that they may all be one, as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that thou didst send me. 22 And I have given unto them the glory which thou hast given unto me; in order that they may be one, as we are one; 23 I in them, and thou in me, in order that they may be perfected into one; in order that the world may know that thou didst send me, and didst love them, as thou didst love me. 24 Father, that which thou hast given unto me, I wish that they may also be with me, where I am, in order that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given unto me: because thou didst love me before the foundation of the world. 25 Righteous Father, indeed the world does not know thee, but I know thee, and they know that thou didst send me; 26 I made known thy name to them, and will make it known; in order that the love with which thou didst love me may be in them, and I in them.
