17:1 These things Jesus spoke, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said: Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee.
17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he may give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him.
17:3 Now this is eternal life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
17:5 And now glorify thou me, O Father, with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world was, with thee.
17:6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gavest them; and they have kept thy word.
17:7 Now they have known, that all things which thou hast given me, are from thee:
17:8 Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me: because they are thine:
17:10 And all my things are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
17:11 And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name whom thou has given me; that they may be one, as we also are.
17:12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled.
17:13 And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves.
17:14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world; as I also am not of the world.
17:15 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from evil.
17:16 They are not of the world, as I also am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth.
17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
17:19 And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.
17:20 And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me;
17:21 That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
17:22 And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one:
17:23 I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.
17:24 Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me may be with me; that they may see my glory which thou hast given me, because thou hast loved me before the creation of the world.
17:25 Just Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee: and these have known that thou hast sent me.
17:26 And I have made known thy name to them, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.
