You have granted Him power and authority over all flesh (all humankind), so that He may give eternal life to all whom You have given Him.
And this is eternal life: to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and to know Him, Jesus Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent.
I have glorified You down here on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do.
And now, Father, glorify Me along with Yourself and restore Me to such majesty and honor in Your presence as I had with You before the world existed.
I have manifested Your Name to the people whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have obeyed and kept Your word.
Now they know and understand that all You have given Me belongs to You .
For the words that You gave Me I have given them; and they have received and accepted and have come to know positively and in reality that I came forth from Your presence, and they have believed and are convinced that You did send Me.
I am praying for them. I am not praying (requesting) for the world, but for those You have given Me, for they belong to You.
All Mine are Yours, and all Yours belong to Me; and I am glorified in (through) them.
And I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep in Your Name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We .
While I was with them, I kept and preserved them in Your Name . Those You have given Me I guarded and protected, and not one of them has perished or is lost except the son of perdition , that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
And now I am coming to You; I say these things while I am still in the world, so that My joy may be made full and complete and perfect in them .
I have given and delivered to them Your word (message) and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world , just as I am not of the world.
I do not ask that You will take them out of the world, but that You will keep and protect them from the evil one.
They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.
Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth.
Neither for these alone do I pray , but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching,
That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.
I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one as We are one:
I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them as You have loved Me.
Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me may 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.
O just and righteous Father, although the world has not known You and has failed to recognize You and has never acknowledged You, I have known You ; and these men understand and know that You have sent Me.
I have made Your Name known to them and revealed Your character and Your very Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.Self, and I will continue to make known, that the love which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them and that I may be in them.
