John 17 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
17 1 Christ prayeth that his glory together with his Father’s may be made manifest. 9 He Prayeth for his Apostles, 20 and for all believers.
2 As thou hast given him power over [c]all flesh, that he should give eternal life to all them that thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they know thee to be the [d]only very God, and whom thou hast sent, Jesus Christ.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now glorify me, thou Father, with thine own self, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
7 Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast given me, are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and have believed that thou hast sent me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me: for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them.
11 And now am I no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy Name, even them whom thou hast given me, that they may be [h]one as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy Name: those that thou gavest me, have I kept, and none of them is lost, but the child of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee, and these things speak I in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
15 [i]I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou keep them from evil.
16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
17 [j]Sanctify them with thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 [k]As thou didst send me into the world, so have I sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes sanctify I myself, that they also may be sanctified through the [l]truth.
20 [m]I pray not for these alone, but for them also which shall believe in me, through their word,
21 That they all may be one, as thou, O Father, art in me, and I in thee: even that they may be also one in us, that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory that thou gavest me, I have given them, that they may be one, as we are one,
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they which thou hast given me, be with me even where I am, that they may behold that my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world also hath not known thee, but I have known thee, and these have known, that thou hast sent me.
26 [n]And I have declared unto them thy Name, and will declare it, that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.
