Bible: John 17:6-19

Jesus Prays for the Disciples

17:6I have revealed 1  your name to the men 2  you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, 3  and you gave them to me, and they have obeyed 4  your word. 17:7 Now they understand 5  that everything 6  you have given me comes from you, 17:8 because I have given them the words you have given me. They 7  accepted 8  them 9  and really 10  understand 11  that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 17:9 I am praying 12  on behalf of them. I am not praying 13  on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those you have given me, because they belong to you. 14  17:10 Everything 15  I have belongs to you, 16  and everything you have belongs to me, 17  and I have been glorified by them. 18  17:11 I 19  am no longer in the world, but 20  they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe 21  in your name 22  that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one. 23  17:12 When I was with them I kept them safe 24  and watched over them 25  in your name 26  that you have given me. Not one 27  of them was lost except the one destined for destruction, 28  so that the scripture could be fulfilled. 29  17:13 But now I am coming to you, and I am saying these things in the world, so they may experience 30  my joy completed 31  in themselves. 17:14 I have given them your word, 32  and the world has hated them, because they do not belong to the world, 33  just as I do not belong to the world. 34  17:15 I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but that you keep them safe 35  from the evil one. 36  17:16 They do not belong to the world 37  just as I do not belong to the world. 38  17:17 Set them apart 39  in the truth; your word is truth. 17:18 Just as you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. 40  17:19 And I set myself apart 41  on their behalf, 42  so that they too may be truly set apart. 43
