John 17

Etheridge(i) 1 These spake Jeshu; and, uplifting his eyes to heaven, he said, My Father, the hour hath come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee. 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that to all whom thou hast given him he should give the life which is eternal. 3 But this is the life which is eternal, that they know thee, who art the true Aloha,[The Aloha of truth.] and Him whom thou hast sent, Jeshu Meshicha. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth; the work which thou didst give me to do, I have finished it. 5 And now glorify thou me, my Father, with thyself, in that glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have made known thy name unto the sons of man; those whom thou gavest me from the world: thine they were, and to me didst thou give them; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now have they known that whatsoever thou hast given me is from thee. 8 And the words that thou gavest me I have given them, and they have received, and have known assuredly that from thee I came forth, and have believed that thou didst send me. 9 And for them I pray; not for the world I pray, but for them whom thou hast given me, because they are thine. 10 And every thing of mine is thine, and thine is mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 Henceforth I am not in the world; but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them through thy name, that (name) which thou hast given to me, that they may be one as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them through thy name: those whom thou gavest me I have kept, and a man of them is not lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled. 13 BUT now I come to thee, and these (things) I speak in the world, that they may have my joy completed in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 15 Not that thou wouldest take them out of the world do I pray, but that thou wouldest keep them from the evil; 16 for they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Father, sanctify them through thy truth; for thy word is truth. 18 As me thou hast sent into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated for the truth. 20 Nor for these do I pray only, but also for those who shall believe in me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as thou, my Father, (art) in me, and I in thee, that they also in us one may be; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou hast given me have I given unto them, that they may be one as we are one; 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and that thou hast loved them, as me also thou hast loved. 24 Father, those whom thou hast given I will that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see that glory of mine, which thou hast given to me; for thou lovedst me before the foundations of the world. 25 My righteous Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have made known unto them thy name, and I make it known that the love itself, wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I may be in them.
