John 17:1–8

The High Priestly Prayer

2 even as aYou gave Him authority over all flesh, that bto 1all whom You have given Him, cHe may give eternal life.

3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, athe only true God, and Jesus Christ whom bYou have sent.

4 aI glorified You on the earth, 1bhaving accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.

5 Now, Father, aglorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had bwith You before the world was.

6 aI have manifested Your name to the men whom bYou gave Me out of the world; they were cYours and You gave them to Me, and they have dkept Your word.

7 Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You;

8 for athe words which You gave Me bI have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that cI came forth from You, and they believed that dYou sent Me.
