João 17

1 These things Jesus spoke; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son, that the son may glorify you:

2 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, that to all whom you have given him, he should give eternal life.

3 And this is eternal life, that they should know you the only true God, and him whom you sent, [even] Jesus Christ.

4 I glorified you on the earth, having accomplished the work which you have given me to do.

5 And now, Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was.

6 I manifested 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 kept your word.

7 Now they know that all things that you have given me are from you:

8 for the words which you gave me I have given to them; and they received [them], and knew of a truth that I came forth from you, and they believed that you sent me.

9 I pray for them: I don't pray for the world, but for those whom you have given me; for they are yours:

10 and all things that are mine are yours, and yours are mine: and I am glorified in them.

11 And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we [are].

12 While I was with them, I kept them in your name which you have given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

13 But now I come to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves.

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

15 I don't pray that you should take them from the world, but that you should keep them from the evil [one].

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

17 Sanctify them in the truth: your word is truth.

18 As you sent me into the world, even so I sent them into the world.

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

20 Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word;

21 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, [are] in me, and I in you; that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that you sent me.

22 And the glory which you have given me I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we [are] one;

23 I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me.

24 Father, [about] what you have given me, I desire that where I am those also may be with me, that they may see my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father, the world didn't know you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me;

26 and I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.
