11 And I am no longer in the world, but (A)they are in the world, and (B)I am coming to you. (C)Holy Father, (D)keep them in your name, (E)which you have given me, (F)that they may be one, (G)even as we are one. 12 (H)While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have (I)guarded them, and (J)not one of them has been lost except (K)the son of destruction, (L)that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now (M)I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have (N)my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 (O)I have given them your word, and (P)the world has hated them (Q)because they are not of the world, (R)just as I am not of the world. 15 I (S)do not ask that you (T)take them out of the world, but that you (U)keep them from (V)the evil one.[a] 16 (W)They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 (X)Sanctify them[b] in the truth; (Y)your word is truth. 18 (Z)As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And (AA)for their sake (AB)I consecrate myself,[c] that they also (AC)may be sanctified[d] in truth.

20 “I do not (AD)ask for these only, but also for those (AE)who will believe in me through their word, 21 (AF)that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that (AG)they also may be in (AH)us, so that the world (AI)may believe that you have sent me. 22 (AJ)The glory that you have given me (AK)I have given to them, (AL)that they may be one even as we are one, 23 (AM)I in them and you in me, (AN)that they may become perfectly one, (AO)so that the world may know that you sent me and (AP)loved them even as (AQ)you loved me.
