"I have revealed Thy perfections to the men whom Thou gavest me out of the world. Thine they were, and Thou gavest them to me, and they have obeyed Thy message.
Now they know that whatever Thou hast given me is from Thee.
For the truths which Thou didst teach me I have taught them. And they have received them, and have known for certain that I came out from Thy presence, and have believed that Thou didst send me.
"I am making request for them: for the world I do not make any request, but for those whom Thou hast given me. Because they are Thine,
and everything that is mine is Thine, and everything that is Thine is mine; and I am crowned with glory in them.
I am now no longer in the world, but they are in the world and I am coming to Thee. "Holy Father, keep them true to Thy name--the name which Thou hast given me to bear--that they may be one, even as we are.
While I was with them, I kept them true to Thy name--the name Thou hast given me to bear--and I kept watch over them, and not one of them is lost but only he who is doomed to destruction--that the Scripture may be fulfilled.
"But now I am coming to Thee, and I speak these words while I am in the world, in order that they may have my gladness within them filling their hearts.
I have given them Thy Message, and the world has hated them, because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.
I do not ask that Thou wilt remove them out of the world, but that Thou wilt protect them from the Evil one.
They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.
Make them holy in the truth: Thy Message is truth.
Just as Thou didst send me into the world, I also have sent them;
and on their behalf I consecrate myself, in order that they may become perfectly consecrated in truth.
