John 17
1 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the
hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 as You have
given Him authority over all flesh, that He should[a] give eternal life to as many as
You have given Him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only
true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth.
I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father,
glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the
world was.

6 “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the
world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7
Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. 8 For I
have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received
them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed
that You sent Me.
9 “I pray for them. I do not pray 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 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world,
and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have
given Me,[b] that they may be one as We are. 12 While I was with them in the
world,[c] I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept;[d] and
none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be
fulfilled. 13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they
may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the
world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the
world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You
should keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not
of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me
into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I
sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will[e] believe in Me
through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in
You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just
as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one,
and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You
have loved Me.
24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am,
that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before
the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You,
but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have
declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved
Me may be in them, and I in them.”

                                     John 11: 41 - 42
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying.[d]
And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are
standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
John 12: 27 - 28
27 “Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’?
But for this purpose I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify Your name.”
Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it
