John 17

These things spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said: My Father, the hour is come: glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee. As thou hast given him authority over all flesh, that he might give life eternal to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they may know thee, that thou art the only true God, and whom thou hast sent, Jesus Messiah. I have glorified thee on the earth; the work which thou gavest me to do, I have finished. And now, my Father, glorify thou me, with that glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have made known thy name to the men, whom thou gavest me from the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy word. Now I have known, that whatever thou hast given me, was from thee. For, the words thou gavest to me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known certainly, that I came from thy presence; and they have believed that thou didst send me. And I pray for them; it is not for the world that I pray, but for them whom thou hast given me, for they are thine. 10 And all that is mine is thine, and what is thine is mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 Henceforth I am not in the world; but these are in the world, and I go to thee. Holy Father, keep them in that thy name, which thou hast given to me; that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I have been with them in the world, I have kept them in thy name. Those thou gavest me, have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that my joy may be complete in them. 14 I have given them thy word: and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not, that thou wouldst take them out of the world, but that thou wouldst keep them from evil: 16 for they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Father, sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is the truth. 18 As thou didst send me into the world, so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. 20 And it is not for them only that I pray, but also for those who shall believe in me through their discourse; 21 that they all may be one; as thou, my Father, art in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; so that the world may believe, that thou didst send me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me, I have given them; that they may be one, as we are one. 23 I in them, and thou in me; that they may be perfected into one; and that the world may know that thou didst send me, and that thou hast loved them as also thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I desire that those whom thou hast given me, may also be with me where I am; that they may see that glory of mine which thou hast given me, as thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 My righteous Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee, and these have known, that thou didst send me. 26 And I have made known to them thy name; and I will make it known; so that the love, with which thou lovedst me, may be in them, and I in them.
