Chapter 17

1

 Jesus said these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, 'Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you; 


2

 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, that to all whom you have given him, he will give eternal life. 


3

 This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. 


4

 I glorified you on the earth. I have accomplished the work which you have given me to do. 


5

 Now, Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world existed. 


6

 I revealed your name to the people whom you have given me out of the world. They were yours, and you have given them to me. They have kept your word. 


7

 Now they know that all things whatever you have given me are from you, 


8

 for the words which you have given me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew for sure that I came forth from you, and they believed that you sent me. 


9

 I pray for them. I don't pray for the world, but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. 


10

 All things that are mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. 


11

 I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them through your name which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are. 


12

 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom you have given me I have kept. None of them is lost, except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 


13

 But now I come to you, and I say these things in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves. 


14

 I have given them your word. The world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 


15

 I pray not that you would take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one. 


16

 They are not of the world even as I am not of the world. 


17

 Sanctify them in your truth. Your word is truth. 


18

 As you sent me into the world, even so I sent them into the world. 


19

 For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 


20

 Neither for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, 


21

 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me. 


22

 The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; 


23

 I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me. 


24

 Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world. 


25

 Righteous Father, the world didn't know you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me. 


26

 I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.' 


John 18
