John 17

1Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him; 6and to preserve his apostles in unity of faith, 15and from all evil; 17and to sanctify them with the word of truth: 20and for the perfect union of all believers, and their admission to a share of his glory in heaven.

1 These 1words spake Jesus, and 2lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, 3the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

2 1As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should 2give eternal life to 3as many as thou hast given him.

3 1And this is life eternal, 2that they might know thee 3the only true God, and Jesus Christ, 4whom thou hast sent.

4 1I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

5 And now, O Father, 1glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which 2I had with thee before the world was.

6 1I have manifested thy name unto 2the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and 3they have kept thy word.

7 1Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

8 For 1I 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.

9 1I pray for them: 2I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for 3they are thine.

10 1And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; 2and I am glorified in them.

11 1And now I am no more in the world, but these are in 2the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, 3keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, 4that they may be one, 5as we are.

12 While I was with them in the world, 1I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but 2the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13 1And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

14 1I have given them thy word; and 2the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest 1keep them from 2the evil.

16 1They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

17 1Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 1As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19 1And for their sakes I 2sanctify myself, that they also might be asanctified through the truth.

20 Neither pray I for 1these alone, but for 2them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21 That they all 1may be one; 2as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: 3that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And 1the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 1I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made 2perfect in one; and 3that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and 4hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, 1be with me where I am; 2that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me 3before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father, the world 1hath not known thee: 2but I have known thee, and 3these have known that thou hast sent me.

26 1And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me 2may be in them, and I 3in them.
