The Passion Translation
4 I have glorified you on the earth
by faithfully doing everything you’ve told me to do.
5 So my Father, restore me back to the glory
that we shared together when we were face-to-face
before the universe was created.”[a]
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
6 “Father, I have manifested who you really are
and I have revealed you[b] to the men and women
that you gave to me.[c]
They were yours, and you gave them to me,
and they have fastened your Word firmly to their hearts.
