The High Priestly Prayer
1Jesus spoke these things; and raising His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, so that the Son may glorify You,
2just as You gave Him authority over all Lit fleshmankind, so that Lit everything that You have given Him, to them He mayto all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
3And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
4I glorified You on the earth Or having accomplishedby accomplishing the work which You have given Me to do.
5And now You, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world existed.
6 “I have revealed Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have followed Your word.
7Now they have come to know that everything which You have given Me is from You;
8for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.
9I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but on the behalf of those whom You have given Me, because they are Yours;
10and all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.
11I am no longer going to be in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, so that they may be one just as We are.
12While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name, which You have given Me; and I guarded them, and not one of them perished except the Heb idiom for one destined to perishson of destruction, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled.
The Disciples in the World
13 But now I am coming to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves.
14I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
15I am not asking You to take them out of the world, but to keep them away from Or evilthe evil one.
16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
18Just as You sent Me into the world, I also sent them into the world.
19And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, so that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
20 “I am not asking on behalf of these alone, but also for those who believe in Me through their word,
21that they may all be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may Gr tense indicates continually believebelieve that You sent Me.
Disciples’ Future Glory
22 The glory which You have given Me I also have given to them, so that they may be one, just as We are one;
23I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected Lit into onein unity, so that the world may Gr tense indicates continually knowknow that You sent Me, and You loved them, just as You loved Me.
24Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
