(A)“I have manifested your name to the people (B)whom you gave me out of the world. (C)Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything (D)that you have given me is from you. For I have given them (E)the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that (F)I came from you; and (G)they have believed that you sent me. I am praying for them. (H)I am not praying for the world but for those (I)whom you have given me, for (J)they are yours. 10 (K)All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and (L)I am glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, but (M)they are in the world, and (N)I am coming to you. (O)Holy Father, (P)keep them in your name, (Q)which you have given me, (R)that they may be one, (S)even as we are one. 12 (T)While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have (U)guarded them, and (V)not one of them has been lost except (W)the son of destruction, (X)that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now (Y)I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have (Z)my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 (AA)I have given them your word, and (AB)the world has hated them (AC)because they are not of the world, (AD)just as I am not of the world. 15 I (AE)do not ask that you (AF)take them out of the world, but that you (AG)keep them from (AH)the evil one.[a] 16 (AI)They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 (AJ)Sanctify them[b] in the truth; (AK)your word is truth. 18 (AL)As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And (AM)for their sake (AN)I consecrate myself,[c] that they also (AO)may be sanctified[d] in truth.
