John 17:11–26

11 I am no longer in the world; and yet athey themselves are in the world, and bI come to You. cHoly Father, keep them in Your name, the name dwhich You have given Me, that ethey may be one even as We are.

12 While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name awhich You have given Me; and I guarded them and bnot one of them perished but cthe 1son of perdition, so that the dScripture would be fulfilled.

The Disciples in the World

13 But now aI come to You; and bthese things I speak in the world so that they may have My cjoy made full in themselves.

14 I have given them Your word; and athe world has hated them, because bthey are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them 1from 2athe evil one.

16 aThey are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

17 aSanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

18 As aYou sent Me into the world, bI also have sent them into the world.

19 For their sakes I asanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be bsanctified cin truth.

20 I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word;

21 that they may all be one; aeven as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, bso that the world may 1believe that cYou sent Me.

Their Future Glory

22 The aglory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;

23 aI in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected 1in unity, so that the world may 2know that bYou sent Me, and cloved them, even as You have loved Me.

24 Father, I desire that athey also, whom You have given Me, bbe with Me where I am, so that they may see My cglory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before dthe foundation of the world.

25 O arighteous Father, 1although bthe world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that cYou sent Me;

26 and aI have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that bthe love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
