Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him,
John 17:1 These things spake Iesus, and lift vp his eyes to heauen, and saide, Father, that houre is come: glorifie thy Sonne, that thy Sonne also may glorifie thee, John 17:2 As thou hast giuen him power ouer all flesh, that he shoulde giue eternall life to all them that thou hast giuen him. John 17:3 And this is life eternall, that they knowe thee to be the onely very God, and whom thou hast sent, Iesus Christ. John 17:4 I haue glorified thee on the earth: I haue finished the worke which thou gauest me to doe. John 17:5 And nowe glorifie me, thou Father, with thine owne selfe, with the glorie which I had with thee before the world was.
to preserve his Apostles,
John 17:6 I haue declared thy Name vnto the men which thou gauest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gauest them me, and they haue kept thy worde. John 17:7 Nowe they knowe that all things whatsoeuer thou hast giuen me, are of thee. John 17:8 For I haue giuen vnto them the wordes which thou gauest me, and they haue receiued them, and haue knowen surely that I came out from thee, & haue beleeued that thou hast sent me. John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the worlde, but for them which thou hast giuen me: for they are thine. John 17:10 And al mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them.
John 17:11 And nowe am I no more in the world, but these are in the worlde, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keepe them in thy Name, euen them whome thou hast giuen mee, that they may bee one, as we are. John 17:12 While I was with them in the worlde, I kept them in thy Name: those that thou gauest me, haue I kept, and none of them is lost, but the childe of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. John 17:13 And now come I to thee, and these things speake I in the worlde, that they might haue my ioy fulfilled in themselues. John 17:14 I haue giuen them thy word, & the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou keepe them from euill. John 17:16 They are not of the worlde, as I am not of the world.
John 17:17 Sanctifie them with thy trueth: thy word is trueth. John 17:18 As thou diddest send me into the world, so haue I sent them into the world. John 17:19 And for their sakes sanctifie I my selfe, that they also may bee sanctified through the trueth.
to glorify them, and all other believers with him in heaven.
John 17:20 I praie not for these alone, but for them also which shall beleeue in mee, through their woorde, John 17:21 That they all may bee one, as thou, O Father, art in me, and I in thee: euen that they may be also one in vs, that the worlde may beleeue that thou hast sent me. John 17:22 And the glory that thou gauest me, I haue giuen them, that they may be one, as we are one, John 17:23 I in them, and thou in mee, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the worlde may knowe that thou hast sent mee, and hast loued them, as thou hast loued me. John 17:24 Father, I will that they which thou hast giuen me, be with me euen where I am, that they may beholde that my glorie, which thou hast giuen mee: for thou louedst me before the foundation of the world. John 17:25 O righteous Father, the worlde also hath not knowen thee, but I haue knowen thee, and these haue knowen, that thou hast sent me. John 17:26 And I haue declared vnto the thy Name, and will declare it, that the loue wherewith thou hast loued me, may be in them, and I in them.
