Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him,
John 17:1 These things, spake Jesus, and, lifting up his eyes unto heaven, 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, as touching whatsoever thou hast given him, he might give unto them, life age-abiding. John 17:3 And, this, is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ. John 17:4 I, glorified thee on the earth, The work, finishing, which thou hast given me that I should do. John 17:5 And, now, glorify methou, Father! with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world's existence, with thee.
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, to me, thou gavest them, and, thy word, have they kept: John 17:7 Now, have they come to know, That, all things, as many as thou gavest me, are, from thee; John 17:8 And, the declarations which thou gavest me, have I given them, and, they, received them, and came to know in truth, that, from thee, came I forth,and they believed, that, thou, didst send me forth. John 17:9 I, concerning them, make request: not, concerning the world, do I make request, but concerning them whom thou hast given me, because, thine, they are, John 17:10 And, all my possessions, are, thine, and, thy possessions, mine, and I have been glorified in them.
John 17:11 And, no longer, am I in the world, and, they, are, in the world,and, I, unto thee, am coming. Holy Father! Keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, as, we. John 17:12 When I was with them, I, kept them in thy name which thou hast given me,And I kept watch, and, none from among them, went the destruction,save the son of destruction, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled. John 17:13 But, now, unto thee, am I coming; and, these things, am I speaking in the world, that they may have my own joy fulfilled in themselves. John 17:14 I, have given them thy word, and, the world, hated them, because they are not of the worldeven as, I, am not of the world. John 17:15 I request not, that thou wouldst take them out of the world, but that thou wouldst keep them out of the evil: John 17:16 Of the world, they are not, even as, I, am not of the world.
John 17:17 Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word, is, truth: John 17:18 Even as thou didst send me forth into the world, I also, send them forth into the world; John 17:19 And, on their behalf, I, hallow myself, that, they also, may have become hallowed in truth.
to glorify them, and all other believers with him in heaven.
John 17:20 Not however concerning these alone, do I make request, but, concerning them also who believe, through their word, on me: John 17:21 That they, all, may be, one,even as, thou, Father, in me, and, I, in thee,that, they also, in us, may be;that, the world, may believe that, thou, didst send me forth. John 17:22 And, I, the glory which thou hast given to me, have given to them, that they may be one, even as, we, are, one. John 17:23 I, in them and, thou, in me; That they may have been perfected into, one,That the world may get to know, that, thou, didst send me forth, and didst love them even as thou didst love, me. John 17:24 Father! As touching that which thou hast given me, I desireThat, where, I, am, they also, may be, with me, that they may behold my own glory which thou hast given me,because thou lovedst me, before the foundation of the world. John 17:25 Righteous Father! And so, the world, came not to know thee; but, I, came to know thee, and, these, came to know that, thou, didst send me forth: John 17:26 And I made known unto them thy name, and will make known,that, the love wherewith thou lovedst me, in them, may be, and, I, in them.
