Chapter 17



  These words spoke 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:  





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





  And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.  





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





  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thy ownself, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  





  I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest to me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy word.  





  Now they have known that all things whatever thou hast given me are from thee.  





  For I have given to them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  





  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given to me; for they are thine.  





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





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





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





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





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





  I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil.  





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





  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  





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





  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth.  





  Neither pray I for these alone; but for them also who shall believe on me through their word.  





  That 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 me.  





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





  I 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.  





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





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





  And I have declared to them thy name, and will declare it: that the love with which thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.
