Chapter 17John

17

1 These things spake Jesus; and lifting up his :eyes to :heaven, he said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy :Son, that the Son may glorify thee: 2 even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that whatever thou hast given him, to them he should give eternal life. 3 And this is the eternal life, to know thee the only true God, and whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. 4 I glorified thee on :earth, having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do. 5 And now glorify THOU me with thyself, Father, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I manifested thy :name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy :word. 7 Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are from thee: 8 because the words which thou gavest me I have given to them; and they received them, and truly knew that I came forth from thee, and they believed that THOU didst send me. 9 I ask for them: I ask not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me; because they are thine: 10 and all things :mine are thine, and thine mine: and I am glorified in them. 11 And I am no more in the world, and THEY are in the world, and I come unto thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy :name, in which thou hast given them to me, that they be one, even as we are. 12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy :name in which thou hast given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of :perdition; that the scripture be fulfilled. 13 But now I come unto thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have :my :joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy :word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I ask not that thou take them †out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them out of the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth: :thy :word is truth. 18 Even as thou didst send me into the world, I also sent them into the world. 19 And for them I sanctify myself, that THEY also may be sanctified in the truth. 20 And not for these only do I ask, but for them also that believe unto me through their :word; 21 that all be one; even as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee, that THEY also be in us: that the world believe that thou didst send me. 22 And I have given them the glory which thou hast given me; that they be one, even as we are one; 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they be perfected into one; that the world know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me. 24 Father, what thou hast given me, I desire that where I am, they also be with me, that they may behold :my :glory, which thou hast given me: because thou lovedst me before the world’s foundation. 25 Righteous Father, the world also knew thee not, but I knew thee; and these knew that thou didst send me; 26 and I made known to them thy :name, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou lovedst me be in them, and I in them.
