17 1These 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
2even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that to all whom
thou hast given him, he should give eternal life.
3And this is life
eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou
didst send, even Jesus Christ.
4I glorified thee on the earth,
having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do.
Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with
thee before the world was.
6I manifested thy name unto 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.
7Now they know that all things whatsoever thou
hast given me are from thee:
8for the words which thou gavest me I have
given unto them; and they received them, and knew of a truth that I
came forth from thee, and they believed that thou didst send me.
for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me;
for they are thine:
10and all things that are mine are thine, and thine
are mine: and I am glorified in them.
11And I am no more in the world,
and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy
name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are.
12While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast given
me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of
perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13But now I come to
thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy made
full in themselves.
14I 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.
15I pray not that thou shouldest take them from the world, but that thou
shouldest keep them from the evil one.
16They are not of the
world even as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them in the truth: thy
word is truth.
18As thou didst send me into the world, even so sent I
them into the world.
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they
themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
20Neither for these only do I
pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word;
they may all be one; even 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
22And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that
they may be one, even as we are one;
23I in them, and thou in me,
that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst
send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.
24Father, I desire
that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where I am, that they may
behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the
foundation of the world.
25O righteous Father, the world knew thee not,
but I knew thee; and these knew that thou didst send me;
26and I made
known unto them thy name, and will make it known; that the love wherewith
thou lovedst me may be in them, and I in them.
