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;and the world has hated them because they are not of the world,just as I am not of the world.15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, butthat You should keep them from the evil one.16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.17 Sanctify[a]them by Your truth.Your word is truth.18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.19 Andfor their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
Jesus Prays for All Believers
20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who[b]will believe in Me through their word;21 that they all may be one, asYou, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.22 And theglory which You gave Me I have given them,that they may be one just as We are one:23 I in them, and You in Me;that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me;for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.25 O righteous Father!The world has not known You, butI have known You; andthese have known that You sent Me.26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the lovewith which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
