17:1 These things spoke Jesus; and, lifting his eyes to heaven, he said: Father, the hour has come: glorify thy Son, that the Son may glorify thee,
2 as thou hast given him authority over all flesh, that to all that thou hast given him he may give them life eternal.
3 But eternal life is this, that they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth, having finished the work that thou gavest me to do;
5 and now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world. Thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word;
7 now they know that all things whatever thou hast given me are from thee;
8 for the words that thou gavest me I have given them, and they have received them, and have known in truth that I came forth from thee, and have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for those that thou hast given me, for they are thine,
10 and all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I have been glorified in them.
11 And I am no longer in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in my name that thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we.
12 When I was with them I kept them in thy name that thou hast given me, and I have guarded them, and no one of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the Scripture may be fulfilled.
13 But now I come to thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou take them out of the world, but that thou keep them from the evil one.
16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou didst send me into the world, I sent them into the world;
19 and for them I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in the truth.
20 But not for these only do I pray, but also for those that believe on me through their word,
21 that they all may be one, as thou. Father, art in me and I in thee, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that thou didst send me.
22 And the glory that thou hast given me I have given them, that they may be one as we are one:
23 I in them and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one, that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, as to what thou hast given me, I would that they also be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which thou hast given me because thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 Righteous Father, though the world has not known thee, yet I have known thee, and these have known that thou didst send me;
26 and I have made known to them thy name, and will make it known, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them and I in them.
