John 17
King James 2000

Jesus Prays for Himself

1These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify you:

2As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him.

3And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

4I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do.

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

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

6I have manifested your name unto the men that you gave me out of the world: yours they were, and you gave them to me; and they have kept your word.

7Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given me are of you.

8For I have given unto them the words which you gave me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have believed that you did send me.

9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them that you have given me; for they are yours.

10And all mine are yours and yours are mine; and I am glorified in them.

11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are.

12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name: those that you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

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

15I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil.

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

17Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.

18As you have 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 through the truth.

Jesus Prays for All Believers

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also who shall believe on me through their word;

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

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

23I in them, and you in me, 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.

24Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

25O righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me.

26And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
