Chapter 17

John 17:1 These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You:

John 17:2 as you have given Him power over all flesh, that He should give infinite life to as many as You have given Him.

John 17:3 and this is infinite life, that they might know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ, who You have sent.

John 17:4 I have glorified You on the land: I have finished the work which you gave Me to do.

John 17:5 Now, oh Father, glorify Me with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

John 17:6 I have manifested Your name to the men who You gave Me out of the world: they were Yours, and You gave them to Me; and they have kept Your word.

John 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatever You have given Me are of You.

John 17:8 For I have given to them the words which You gave Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from You, and they have believed that You did send Me.

John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those who you have given Me; for they are Yours.

John 17:10 And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I am glorified in them.

John 17:11 Now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your own name those who You have given Me, that they may be one, as We are.

John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name: those that You gave Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

John 17:13 Now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

John 17:14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

John 17:15 I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil.

John 17:16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

John 17:17 Sanctify them through Your reality: Your word is reality.

John 17:18 As You have sent Me into the world, even so I have also sent them into the world.

John 17:19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the reality.

John 17:20 Neither do I pray for these alone, but for them also who will believe on Me through their word;

John 17:21 that they all may be one; as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that You have sent Me.

John 17:22 and the glory which you gave Me I have given them; that they may be one, just as We are one:

John 17:23 I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made mature into one; and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as You have loved Me.

John 17:24 Father, I desire that they also, who You have given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which you have given Me: for You loved Me before the downfall of the world.

John 17:25 Oh righteous Father, the world has not known You: but I have known You, and these have known that You have sent Me.

John 17:26 and I have explained to them Your qualities, and will declare it: that the love with which You have loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
