11 (A)Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, (B)keep[a] through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one (C)as We are. 12 While I was with them [b]in the world, (D)I kept them in [c]Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and (E)none of them is [d]lost (F)except the son of [e]perdition, (G)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 fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; (H)and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, (I)just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but (J)that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 (K)Sanctify[f] them by Your truth. (L)Your word is truth. 18 (M)As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And (N)for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
