17 These things spake Jesus, and lifting up his eyes unto heaven said:—Father! The hour is come! Glorify thy Son, That the Son may glorify thee,—
2 Even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, That as touching whatsoever thou hast given him He might give unto them life age-abiding.
3 And this is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, And him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ.
4 I glorified thee on the earth, The work finishing which thou hast given me that I should do.
5 And now glorify me—thou, Father, With thyself with the glory which I had before the world’s existence with thee.
6 I manifested thy name unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: Thine they were And to me thou gavest them, And thy word have they kept:
7 Now have they come to know That all things as many as thou gavest me are from thee;
8 And the declarations which thou gavest me have I given them, And they received them and came to know in truth, That from thee came I forth,—And they believed That thou didst send me forth.
9 I concerning them make request: Not concerning the world do I make request, But concerning them whom thou hast given me Because thine they are,—
10 And all my possessions are thine And thy possessions mine, And I have been glorified in them.
11 And no longer am I in the world, And they are in the world,—And I unto thee am coming. Holy Father! Keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, That they may be one as we.
12 When I was with them I kept them in thy name which thou hast given me,—And I kept watch, And none from among them went to destruction,—Save the son of destruction, That the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 But now unto thee am I coming; And these things am I speaking in the world, That they may have my own joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word, And the world hated them Because they are not of the world—Even as I am not of the world.
15 I request not that thou wouldst take them out of the world But that thou wouldst keep them out of the evil:
16 Of the world they are not, Even as I am not of the world.
17 Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word is truth.
18 Even as thou didst send me forth into the world I also send them forth into the world;
19 And on their behalf I hallow myself, That they also may have become hallowed in truth.
20 Not however concerning these alone do I make request, But concerning them also who believe through their word on me:
21 That they all may be one,—Even as thou Father in me, And I in thee,—That they also in us may be;—That the world may believe that thou didst send me forth.
22 And I the glory which thou hast given to me have given to them, That they may be one Even as we are one,—
23 I in them and thou in me; That they may have been perfected into one,—That the world may get to know That thou didst send me forth, And didst love them even as thou didst love me.
24 Father! As touching that which thou hast given me I desire—That where I am They also may be with me, That they may behold my own glory which thou hast given me,—Because thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 Righteous Father! And so the world came not to know thee; But I came to know thee, And these came to know that thou didst send me forth:
26 And I made known unto them thy name and will make known,—That the love wherewith thou lovedst me In them may be, And I in them.
