John 17:6-19 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

I have showed thy name to those men, which thou hast given to me of the world [I have showed thy name to the men, whom thou hast given to me of the world]; they were thine, and thou hast given them to me, and they have kept thy word.

And now they have known, that all things that thou hast given to me, be of thee.

For the words that thou hast given to me, I gave to them; and they have taken, and have known verily, that I went out from thee; and they believed, that thou sentest me.

I pray for them, I pray not for the world, but for them that thou hast given to me, for they be thine.

10 And all my things be thine, and thy things be mine [And all mine things be thine, and thine things be mine]; and I am clarified in them.

11 And now I am not in the world, and these be in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given to me [whom thou hast given to me], that they be one, as we be.

12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name; those that thou gavest to me, I kept, and none of them perished, but the son of perdition, that the scripture be fulfilled.

13 But now I come to thee, and I speak these things in the world [and these things I speak in the world], that they have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

14 I gave to them thy word, and the world had them in hate; for they be not of the world, as I am not of the world.

15 I pray not, that thou take them away from the world, but that thou keep them from evil.

16 They be not of the world, as I am not of the world.

17 Hallow thou them in truth; thy word is truth.

18 As thou sentest me into the world, also I sent them into the world.

19 And I hallow myself for them, that also they be hallowed in truth.

John 17:6-19 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

I have declared your name to the men that you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your sayings. Now they know that all things, whatsoever you have given me, are of you. For I have given to them the words that you gave me, and they have received them, and know surely that I came out from you, and do believe that you did send me.

I pray for them – and pray not for the world, but for those whom you have given me. For they are yours. 10 And all mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep in your own name those whom you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, except that lost child, so that the scripture may be fulfilled.

13 Now I come to you. And I speak these words in the world so that they may have my joy full in them. 14 I have given them your words. And the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I ask not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from evil. 16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them with your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so have I sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified through the truth.

John 17:6-19 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]I have declared thy Name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: [b]thine they were, and thou [c]gavest them me, and they have kept thy word.

Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast given me, are of thee.

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.

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 [d]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 [e]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 [f]Sanctify them with thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 [g]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 [h]truth.

  1. John 17:6 First of all he prayeth for those his disciples, by whom he would have the rest to be gathered together, commendeth them unto the Father, (having once rejected the whole company of the reprobate) because he received them of him into his custody, and for that they embracing his doctrine, shall have so many and so mighty enemies, that there is no way for them to be in safety, but by his help only.

John 17:6-19 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 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 they have believed that thou didst send me. 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 I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak 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, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
