John 17:13-26 NAS
But now I come to You;
and these things I speak in the world so they may have My joy made full in
themselves. I have given them Your word; and the world has hated
them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the
world. I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep
them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I
am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is
truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the
world. For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also
may be sanctified in truth.
do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those who also believe in Me
through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are
in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may
believe that You sent Me.
glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one,
just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in
unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even
as You loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have
given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You
have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known
You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name
known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You
loved Me may be in them, and I in them."
