John 17:1 These thingis Jhesus spak, and whanne he hadde cast vp hise iyen in to heuene, he seide, Fadir, the our cometh, clarifie thi sone, that thi sone clarifie thee. John 17:2 As thou hast youun to hym power on ech fleisch, that al thing that thou hast youun to hym, he yyue to hem euerlastynge lijf. John 17:3 And this is euerlastynge lijf, that thei knowe thee very God aloone, and whom thou hast sent, Jhesu Crist.

John 17:5 And now, fadir, clarifie thou me at thi silf, with the clerenesse that Y hadde at thee, bifor the world was maad.
to preserve his Apostles,
John 17:6 Y haue schewid thi name to tho men, whiche thou hast youun to me of the world; thei weren thine, and thou hast youun hem to me, and thei han kept thi word. John 17:7 And now thei han knowun, that alle thingis that thou hast youun to me, ben of thee. John 17:8 For the wordis that thou hast youun to me, Y yaf to hem; and thei han takun, and han knowun verili, that Y wente out fro thee; and thei bileueden, that thou sentist me. John 17:9 Y preie for hem, Y preye not for the world, but for hem that thou hast youun to me, for thei ben thine. John 17:10 And alle my thingis ben thine, and thi thingis ben myne; and Y am clarified in hem.
John 17:11 And now Y am not in the world, and these ben in the world, and Y come to thee. Hooli fadir, kepe hem in thi name, whiche thou yauest to me, that thei ben oon, as we ben. John 17:12 While Y was with hem, Y kepte hem in thi name; thilke that thou yauest to me, Y kepte, and noon of hem perischide, but the sone of perdicioun, that the scripture be fulfillid. John 17:13 But now Y come to thee, and Y speke these thingis in the world, that thei haue my ioie fulfillid in hem silf. John 17:14 Y yaf to hem thi word, and the world hadde hem in hate; for thei ben not of the world, as Y am not of the world. John 17:15 Y preye not, that thou take hem awei fro the world, but that thou kepe hem fro yuel. John 17:16 They ben not of the world, as Y am not of the world.
John 17:17 Halewe thou hem in treuth; thi word is treuthe. John 17:18 As thou sentist me in to the world, also Y sente hem in to the world. John 17:19 And Y halewe my silf for hem, that also thei ben halewid in treuthe.
to glorify them, and all other believers with him in heaven.
John 17:20 And Y preye not oneli for hem, but also for hem that schulden bileue in to me bi the word of hem; John 17:21 that all ben oon, as thou, fadir, in me, and Y in thee, that also thei in vs be oon; that the world bileue, that thou hast sent me. John 17:22 And Y haue youun to hem the clerenesse, that thou hast youun to me, that thei ben oon, John 17:23 as we ben oon; Y in hem, and thou in me, that thei be endid in to oon; and that the world knowe, that thou sentist me, and hast loued hem, as thou hast loued also me. John 17:24 Fadir, thei whiche thou yauest to me, Y wole that where Y am, that thei be with me, that thei see my clerenesse, that thou hast youun to me; for thou louedist me bifor the makyng of the world. John 17:25 Fadir, riytfuli the world knew thee not, but Y knew thee, and these knewen, that thou sentist me. John 17:26 And Y haue maad thi name knowun to hem, and schal make knowun; that the loue bi which thou hast loued me, be in hem, and Y in hem.
