16 “For God so (B)loved the world, that He (C)gave His [b](D)only begotten Son, that whoever (E)believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God (F)did not send the Son into the world (G)to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 (H)He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of (I)the [c]only begotten Son of God. 19 This is the judgment, that (J)the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for (K)their deeds were evil. 20 (L)For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who (M)practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
John’s Last Testimony
22 After these things Jesus and His (N)disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He was spending time with them and (O)baptizing. 23 John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized— 24 for (P)John had not yet been thrown into prison.
25 Therefore there arose a discussion on the part of John’s disciples with a Jew about (Q)purification. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “(R)Rabbi, He who was with you (S)beyond the Jordan, to whom you (T)have testified, behold, He is baptizing and all are coming to Him.” 27 John answered and said, “(U)A man can receive nothing unless it (V)has been given him from heaven. 28 You yourselves [d]are my witnesses that I said, ‘(W)I am not the [e]Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent ahead of Him.’ 29 He who has the bride is (X)the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this (Y)joy of mine has been made full. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 “(Z)He who comes from above is above all, (AA)he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. (AB)He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 What He has seen and heard, of that He (AC)testifies; and (AD)no one receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony (AE)has set his seal to this, that God is true. 34 For He whom God has (AF)sent speaks the words of God; [f](AG)for He gives the Spirit without measure. 35 (AH)The Father loves the Son and (AI)has given all things into His hand. 36 He who (AJ)believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who (AK)does not [g]obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”Read full chapter

2 even as (A)You gave Him authority over all flesh, that (B)to [a]all whom You have given Him, (C)He may give eternal life. 3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, (D)the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom (E)You have sent. 4 (F)I glorified You on the earth, [b](G)having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 Now, Father, (H)glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had (I)with You before the world was.
6 “(J)I have manifested Your name to the men whom (K)You gave Me out of the world; they were (L)Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have (M)kept Your word. 7 Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You; 8 for (N)the words which You gave Me (O)I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that (P)I came forth from You, and they believed that (Q)You sent Me. 9 (R)I ask on their behalf; (S)I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom (T)You have given Me; for (U)they are Yours; 10 and (V)all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11 I am no longer in the world; and yet (W)they themselves are in the world, and (X)I come to You. (Y)Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name (Z)which You have given Me, that (AA)they may be one even as We are. 12 While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name (AB)which You have given Me; and I guarded them and (AC)not one of them perished but (AD)the [c]son of perdition, so that the (AE)Scripture would be fulfilled.
The Disciples in the World
13 But now (AF)I come to You; and (AG)these things I speak in the world so that they may have My (AH)joy made full in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and (AI)the world has hated them, because (AJ)they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them [d]from [e](AK)the evil one. 16 (AL)They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 (AM)Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As (AN)You sent Me into the world, (AO)I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I (AP)sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be (AQ)sanctified (AR)in truth.
20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; (AS)even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, (AT)so that the world may [f]believe that (AU)You sent Me.
Their Future Glory
22 The (AV)glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 (AW)I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected [g]in unity, so that the world may [h]know that (AX)You sent Me, and (AY)loved them, even as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that (AZ)they also, whom You have given Me, (BA)be with Me where I am, so that they may see My (BB)glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before (BC)the foundation of the world.
25 “O (BD)righteous Father, [i]although (BE)the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that (BF)You sent Me; 26 and (BG)I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that (BH)the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”Read full chapter
