Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him,
John 17:1 These things spake Jesus; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that the Son may glorify thee: John 17:2 even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that whatsoever thou hast given him, to them he should give eternal life. John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, [even] Jesus Christ. John 17:4 I glorified thee on the earth, having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do. John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
to preserve his Apostles,
John 17:6 I manifested thy name unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy word. John 17:7 Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are from thee: John 17:8 for the words which thou gavest me I have given unto them; and they received [them], and knew of a truth that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou didst send me. John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me; for they are thine: John 17:10 and all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them.
John 17:11 And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we [are]. John 17:12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. John 17:13 But now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them from the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil [one]. John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth. John 17:18 As thou didst send me into the world, even so sent I them into the world. John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
to glorify them, and all other believers with him in heaven.
John 17:20 Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; John 17:21 that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me. John 17:22 And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that they may be one, even as we [are] one; John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me. John 17:24 Father, that which thou hast given me, I will that, where I am, they also may be with me; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. John 17:25 O righteous Father, the world knew thee not, but I knew thee; and these knew that thou didst send me; John 17:26 and I made known unto them thy name, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou lovedst me may be in them, and I in them.
