The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
1Jesus spoke these words and lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, Father, the hour is come; clarify thy Son, that thy Son may also clarify thee,
as thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I have clarified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou didst give me to do.
And now, O Father, clarify thou me with thine own self with that clarity which I had with thee before the world was.
6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou didst give me out of the world; thine they were, and thou didst give them me; and they have kept thy word.
7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9I pray for them; I do not pray for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10And all my things are thine, and thine are mine; and I have been clarified in them.
11And now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, those whom thou hast given me, keep them in thy name, that they may be one, as we are.
12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name; those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14I have given them thy word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15I do not pray that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil.
16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them in thy truth; thy word is the truth.
18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified in the truth.
20Neither do I pray for these alone, but also for those who shall believe in me through their word;
21that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22And the clarity which thou gavest me I have given them, that they may be one, even as we are one:
23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfect in one and that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.
24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am, that they may behold my clarity, which thou hast given me, for thou hast loved me from before the foundation of the world.
25O righteous Father, the world has not known thee; but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26And I have manifested unto them thy name and will manifest it still, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
