John 17
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1JESUS spoke these things, and then he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, O my Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son, so that your Son may glorify you. 2Since you have given him power over all flesh, so that to all whom you have given him, he may give life eternal. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know you, that you are the only true God, even the one who sent Jesus Christ. 4I have already glorified you on the earth; for the work which you had given to me to do, I have finished it. 5So now, O my Father, glorify me with you, with the same glory which I had with you before the world was made.

6I have made your name known to the men whom you gave me out of the world; they were yours and you gave them to me; and they have kept thy word. 7Now they know that whatever you have given me is from you. 8For the words which you gave me I gave them; and they accepted them, and have known truly that I came forth from you, and they have believed that you sent me. 9What I request is for them; I make no request for the world, but for those whom you have given to me; because they are yours. 10And everything which is mine, is yours; and what is yours is mine; and I am glorified by them. 11Hereafter I am not in the world, but these are in the world; and I am coming to you. O holy Father, protect them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I protected them in your name; those you gave me I protected, and not one of them is lost, except the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13Now I am coming to you; and these things I speak while I am in the world, that my joy may be complete in them. 14I have given them your word; and the world hated them, because they were not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15What I request is not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should protect them from evil. 16For they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17O Father, sanctify them in your truth, because your word is truth. 18Just as you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes, I am sanctifying myself, so that they also may be sanctified in the truth.

20I am not making request for these alone, but also for the sake of those who believe in me through their word. 21So that they all may be one; just as you, my Father, art with me, and I am with you, that they also may be one with us; so that the world may believe you sent me.

22And the glory which you gave me, I gave to them; so that they may be one just as we are one. 23I with them and you with me, that they may become perfected in one; so that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them just as you loved me. 24O Father, I wish that those whom you have given me, may also be with me where I am; so that they may see my glory which you have given me; for you have loved me before the foundation of the world.

25O my righteous Father, the world did not know you, but I have known you; and these have known that you have sent me. 26And I have made your name known to them, and I am still making it known; so that the love with which you loved me may be among them, and I be with them.
