John 17

1 These things spoke Jesus, and lifted·​·up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee,
2 as Thou hast given Him authority over all flesh, that as to every thing which Thou hast given Him, He might give to them eternal life.
3 And this is eternal life, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Him whom Thou hast sent, Jesus Christ.
4 I have glorified Thee on the earth; I have finished the work that Thou hast given Me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify Me with Thyself, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou hast given Me out of the world; they were Thine, and Thou hast given them to Me, and they have kept Thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things, as·​·many·​·as Thou hast given Me are from Thee,
8 because the sayings which Thou hast given Me, I have given them; and they have received, and have known truly that I came forth from Thee; and they have believed that Thou didst send Me.
9 I plead for them; I plead not for the world, but for them whom Thou hast given Me, because they are Thine.
10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am 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 in Thy name whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one as We are.
12 When I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name; those whom Thou hast given Me I have guarded, and none of them has been destroyed except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 But now I come to Thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in them.
14 I have given them Thy Word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
15 I plead not that Thou wouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou wouldest keep them from the wicked.
16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
17 Hallow them in Thy truth; Thy Word is truth.
18 As Thou hast sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I hallow Myself, that they also may be hallowed in the truth.
20 But I plead not for these alone, but also for those who believe in Me by1 their word,
21 that they all may be one, as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
22 And I have given to them the glory which Thou hast given to Me, that they may be one, even 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 hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which Thou hast given Me, because Thou lovedst Me before the founding of the world.
25 O just Father, the world has not known Thee, but I have known Thee, and these have known that Thou hast sent Me.
26 And I have made known to them Thy name, and will make it known, that the love with which Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
