1Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, #John 12:23the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2#Dan. 7:14; Matt. 11:27; John 3:35; (Phil. 2:10; Heb. 2:8)as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many #John 6:37, 39; 17:6, 9, 24as You have given Him. 3And #(Is. 53:11); Jer. 9:23, 24this is eternal life, that they may know You, #1 Cor. 8:4; 1 Thess. 1:9the only true God, and Jesus Christ #John 3:34whom You have sent. 4#John 13:31I have glorified You on the earth. #(Dan. 9:24); John 4:34; 19:30I have finished the work #Is. 49:3; 50:5; John 14:31which You have given Me to do. 5And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory #Prov. 8:22–30; John 1:1, 2; Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3which I had with You before the world was. 6#Ps. 22:22“I have manifested Your name to the men #John 6:37whom You have given Me out of the world. #Ezek. 18:4; Rom. 14:8They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. 8For I have given to them the words #John 8:28which You have given Me; and they have received them, #John 8:42; 16:27, 30and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that #Deut. 18:15, 18You sent Me. 9“I pray for them. #(1 John 5:19)I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. 10And all Mine are Yours, and #John 16:15Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11#(Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51); John 13:1; (Acts 1:9; Heb. 4:14; 9:24; 1 Pet. 3:22)Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, #(1 Pet. 1:5); Jude 1keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one #John 10:30as We are. 12While I was with them in the world, #Heb. 2:13I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and #(John 6:39; 18:9); 1 John 2:19none of them is lost #Matt. 27:4, 5; John 6:70; Acts 1:16–20except the son of perdition, #Ps. 41:9; 109:8; John 13:18; Acts 1:20that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them Your word; #Matt. 24:9; Luke 6:22; 21:17; John 15:19; 1 John 3:13and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, #John 8:23just as I am not of the world. 15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but #Matt. 6:13; Gal. 1:4; 2 Thess. 3:3; (2 Tim. 4:18); 2 Pet. 2:9; 1 John 5:18that You should keep them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17#(Acts 15:9; Eph. 5:26; 1 Pet. 1:22)Sanctify them by Your truth. #Ps. 119:9, 142, 151Your word is truth. 18#John 4:38; 20:21As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19And #1 Cor. 1:2; 1 Thess. 4:7; (Heb. 10:10)for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. 20“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21#(John 10:16; Rom. 12:5; Gal. 3:28); Eph. 4:4, 6that they all may be one, as #John 10:38; 17:11, 23You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22And the #John 14:20; 1 John 1:3glory which You gave Me I have given them, #(2 Cor. 3:18)that they may be one just as We are one: 23I in them, and You in Me; #(Col. 3:14)that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. 24#(John 12:26; 14:3; 1 Thess. 4:17)“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; #Matt. 25:34; John 17:5for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father! #John 15:21The world has not known You, but #John 7:29; 8:55; 10:15I have known You; and #John 3:17; 17:3, 8, 18, 21, 23these have known that You sent Me. 26#Ex. 34:5–7; John 17:6And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love #John 15:9; (Eph. 3:17–19)with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
