John 17:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

17 These things Jesus spake, and when he had cast up his eyes into heaven [and the eyes lifted up to heaven], he said, Father, the hour cometh, clarify thy Son, that thy Son clarify thee.

As thou hast given to him power on each flesh, that all thing that thou hast given to him, he give to them everlasting life.

And this is everlasting life, that they know thee very God alone [that they know thee alone very God], and whom thou hast sent, Jesus Christ.

I have clarified thee on the earth, I have ended the work, that thou hast given to me to do.

And now, Father, clarify thou me at thyself, with the clearness that I had at thee, before the world was made.

John 17:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The most hearty and loving prayer of Christ to his Father for all those who receive the truth.

17 These words Jesus spoke, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come. Glorify your Son, so that your Son may glorify you. For you have given him power over all flesh, so that he may give eternal life to as many as you have given him. This is life eternal: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

I have glorified you on the earth. I have finished the work that you gave me to do. And now glorify me, Father, with your own self – with the glory that I had with you before the world was.

These [a]things spake Jesus, and lift up his eyes to heaven, and said, [b]Father, that hour is come: glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee,

As thou hast given him power over [c]all flesh, that he should give eternal life to all them that thou hast given him.

  1. John 17:1 Jesus Christ the everlasting high Priest being ready straightway to offer up himself, doth by solemn prayers consecrate himself to God the Father as a sacrifice: and us together with himself. Therefore this prayer was from the beginning, is, and shall be to the end of the world, the foundation and ground of the Church of God.
  2. John 17:1 He first declareth, that as he came into the world to the end that the Father might show in him, being apprehended by faith, his glory in saving his elect, so he applied himself to that only: and therefore desireth of the Father, that he would bless the work which he hath finished.
  3. John 17:2 Over all men.
  4. John 17:3 He calleth the Father the only very God, to set him against all false gods, and not to shut out himself and the holy Ghost, For straightway he joineth the knowledge of the Father and the knowledge of himself together, and according to his accustomed manner, setteth forth the whole Godhead in the person of the father: So is the Father alone said to be King, immortal, wise, and dwelling in the light which no man can attain unto, invisible, Rom. 16:17; 1 Tim. 1:17.
