Jesus Prays for Himself 17 1Jesus spoke these things, looked up to heaven, and said: Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son so that the Son may glorify You, 2for You gave Him authority over all flesh;[Z] so He may give eternal life to all You have given Him. 3This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ. 4I have glorified You on the earth by completing the work You gave Me to do. 5Now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with that glory I had with You before the world existed. Jesus Prays for His Disciples 6I have revealed Your name to the men You gave Me from the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7Now they know that all things You have given to Me are from You, 8because the words that You gave Me, I have given them. They have received them and have known for certain that I came from You. They have believed that You sent Me. 9I pray[A] for them. I am not praying for the world but for those You have given Me, because they are Yours. 10Everything I have is Yours, and everything You have is Mine, and I have been glorified in them. 11I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect[B] them by Your name that You have given Me, so that they may be one as We are one. 12While I was with them, I was protecting them by Your name that You have given Me. I guarded them and not one of them is lost, except the son of destruction,[C] so that the Scripture may be fulfilled. 13Now I am coming to You, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have My joy completed in them. 14I have given them Your word. The world hated them because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 15I am not praying that You take them out of the world but that You protect them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify[D] them by the truth; Your word is truth. 18As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19I sanctify Myself for them, so they also may be sanctified by the truth. Jesus Prays for All Believers 20I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in Me through their message. 21May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one[E] in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me. 22I have given them the glory You have given Me. May they be one as We are one. 23I am in them and You are in Me. May they be made completely one, so the world may know You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me. 24Father, I desire those You have given Me to be with Me where I am. Then they will see My glory, which You have given Me because You loved Me before the world’s foundation. 25Righteous Father! The world has not known You. However, I have known You, and these have known that You sent Me. 26I made Your name known to them and will make it known, so the love You have loved Me with may be in them and I may be in them.
