John 17:1–26


17 Jesus spoke these things, looked up to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so that the Sonu may glorify you,v since you gave him authority over all people,D,w so that he may give eternal lifex to everyone you have given him.y This is eternal life: that they may know you, the onlyz trueaa God, and the one you have sentabJesus Christ.ac I have glorified you on the earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father,ad glorify me in your presence with that gloryae I had with you before the world existed.af


I have revealed your nameag to the people you gave meah from the world.ai They were yours, you gave them to me,aj and they have kept your word.ak Now they know that everything you have given me is from you, because I have given them the words you gave me.al They have received them and have known for certain that I came from you.am They have believed that you sent me.

I prayE for them. I am not praying for the world but for those you have given me,an because they are yours. 10 Everything I have is yours, and everything you have is mine,ao and I am glorified in them. 11 I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you.ap Holyaq Father, protectF them by your namear that you have given me, so that they may be oneas as we areat one. 12 While I was with them, I was protecting them by your name that you have given me. I guardedau them and not one of them is lost, except the son of destruction,G so that the Scriptureav may be fulfilled.aw 13 Now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy completed in them. 14 I have given them your word. The world hatedax them because they are not of the world,ay just as I am not of the world.az 15 I am not praying that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.ba 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.bb 17 Sanctifybc them by the truth;bd your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world,be I also have sent them into the world. 19 I sanctify myself for them, so that they also may be sanctified by the truth.


20 I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in me through their word. 21 May they all be one,a as you, Father, are in me and I am in you.b May they also beA in us, so that the world may believe you sent me. 22 I have given them the gloryc you have given me, so that they may be one as we are one. 23 I am in them and you are in me,d so that they may be made completely one, that the world may know you have sent me and have lovede them as you have loved me.f

24 Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am,g so that they will see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the world’s foundation. 25 Righteous Father, the world has not known you. However, I have known you,h and they have known that you sent me. 26 I made your namei known to them and will continue to make it known, so that the love you have loved me with may be in them and I may be in them.”j
