John Chapter 17
1These words spake 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:
thou hast given him power over all flesh, that
he should give eternal life to as many as thou
hast given him.
this is life eternal, that they might know thee
the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou
have glorified thee on the earth: I have
finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own
self with the glory which I had with thee before
the world was.
have manifested thy name unto the men which thou
gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and
thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy
they have known that all things whatsoever thou
hast given me are of thee.
I have given unto them the words which thou
gavest me; and they have received them, and have
known surely that I came out from thee, and they
have believed that thou didst send me.
pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for
them which thou hast given me; for they are
all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am
glorified in them.
now I am no more in the world, but these are in
the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep
through thine own name those whom thou hast
given me, that they may be
one, as we are.
I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy
name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and
none of them is lost, but the son of perdition;
that the scripture might be fulfilled.
now come I to thee; and these things I speak in
the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled
have given them thy word; and the world hath
hated them, because they are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
pray not that thou shouldest take them out of
the world, but that thou shouldest keep them
from the evil.
are not of the world, even as I am not of the
them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I
also sent them into the world.
for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they
also might be sanctified through the truth.
pray I for these alone, but for them also which
shall believe on me through their word;
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
the glory which thou gavest me I have given
them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
in them, and thou in me, that they may be made
perfect in one; and that the world may know that
thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou
hast loved me.
I will that they also, whom thou hast given me,
be with me where I am; that they may behold my
glory, which thou hast given me: for thou
lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
righteous Father, the world hath not known thee:
but I have known thee, and these have known that
thou hast sent me.
I have declared unto them thy name, and will
declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast
loved me may be in them, and I in them.
