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; (A)even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, (B)so that the world may [a]believe that (C)You sent Me.

Their Future Glory

22 The (D)glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 (E)I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected [b]in unity, so that the world may [c]know that (F)You sent Me, and (G)loved them, even as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that (H)they also, whom You have given Me, (I)be with Me where I am, so that they may see My (J)glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before (K)the foundation of the world.

25 “O (L)righteous Father, [d]although (M)the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that (N)You sent Me; 26 and (O)I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that (P)the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
