Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him,
John 17:1 These wordes spake Iesus, & lyfte vp hys eyes to heauen, and said: father the houre is come: glorify thy sonne, that thy sonne maye glorifye the: John 17:2 as thou haste geuen hym power ouer all flesh, that he should geue eternall lyfe to as manye as thou hast geuen hym. John 17:3 This is lyfe eternall that they myghte knowe, the that onely very God, and whome thou haste sente Iesus Christ. John 17:4 I haue glorifyed the on the earthe. I haue finyshed the worke whiche thou gauest me to do. John 17:5 And nowe glorifye me thou father with thyne owne selfe with the glorye which I had with the, yer the worlde was
to preserve his Apostles,
John 17:6 I haue declared thy name vnto the men which thou gauest me out of the worlde. Thyne they were and thou gauest them me, and they haue kepte thy saiynges. John 17:7 Now they knowe that all thynges whatsoeuer thou hast geuen me, are of the. John 17:8 For I haue geuen vnto them the wordes whiche thou gauest me, and they haue receyued them and knowe surely that I came out from the, and do beleue that thou dyddest sende me. John 17:9 I praye for them, and praye not for þe worlde but for them whome thou haste geuen me, for they are thyne. John 17:10 And all myne are thyne, and thyne are myne, and I am glorifyed in them.
John 17:11 And now am I no more in þe world, but they are in the worlde, and I come to the. Holy father kepe in thyne owne name, them whom thou hast geuen me, that they maye be one, as we are. John 17:12 Whyle I was with them in þe worlde, I kept them in thy name. Those that thou gauest me, haue I kept, and none of them is lost, but that loste chylde, that the scripture myght be fulfylled. John 17:13 Nowe come I to the, and these wordes speake I in the worlde, that they myghte haue my ioye full in them. John 17:14 I haue geuen them thy wordes, and the worlde hath hated them, because they are not of the worlde, euen as I am not of the worlde. John 17:15 I desyre not that thou shouldest take them out of the world: but that thou kepe them from euyl. John 17:16 They are not of the worlde, as I am not of the world.
John 17:17 Sanctifye them with the truthe, thy saiyng is truthe, John 17:18 As þu diddest sede me into the world, euen so haue I sent them into the worlde, John 17:19 & for theyr sakes sanctifye I my selfe, that they also myght be sanctifyed through the truth:
to glorify them, and all other believers with him in heaven.
John 17:20 I praye not for them alone: but for them also which shall beleue on me through theyr preachyng John 17:21 that they all maye be one, as thou father art in me, and I in the that they maye be also one in vs, that the worlde maye beleue þt thou haste sent me. John 17:22 And that glorye that thou gauest me, haue I geuen them, that they may be one, as we are one, John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they maye be made perfect in one, & that the worlde maye knowe that thou haste sent me, & hast loued them as thou haste loued me. John 17:24 Father, I will that they which thou haste geuen me, be with me where I am, that they maye se my glory which thou hast geuen me. For thou louedest me before the makynge of the worlde. John 17:25 O righteous father, þe very world hath not knowen the: but I haue knowen the, and these haue knowen that thou haste sente me. John 17:26 And I haue declared vnto them thy name, & will declare it that the loue where with þu haste loued me, be in them, and that I be in them.
