Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Jesus said these things; then, lifting his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the time has now come; give glory to your Son, so that the Son may give glory to you: 1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.
2 Even as you gave him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all those whom you have given to him. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.
3 And this is eternal life: to have knowledge of you, the only true God, and of him whom you have sent, even Jesus Christ. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
4 I have given you glory on the earth, having done all the work which you gave me to do. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 And now, Father, let me have glory with you, even that glory which I had with you before the world was. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 I have given knowledge of your name to the men whom you gave me out of the world: yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your words. 6 "I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word.
7 Now it is clear to them that whatever you have given to me comes from you: 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 Because I have given them the words which you gave to me; and they have taken them to heart, and have certain knowledge that I came from you, and they have faith that you sent me. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.
9 My prayer is for them: my prayer is not for the world, but for those whom you have given to me, because they are yours 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
10 (All mine are yours, and yours are mine) and I have glory in them. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
11 And now I will be no longer in the world, but they are in the world and I come to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name which you have given to me, so that they may be one even as we are one. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name--the name you gave me--so that they may be one as we are one.
12 While I was with them I kept them safe in your name which you have given to me: I took care of them and not one of them has come to destruction, but only the son of destruction, so that the Writings might come true. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
13 And now I come to you; and these things I say in the world so that they may have my joy complete in them. 13 "I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.
14 I have given your word to them; and they are hated by the world, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.
15 My prayer is not that you will take them out of the world, but that you will keep them from the Evil One. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
16 They are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Make them holy by the true word: your word is the true word. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 Even as you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 And for them I make myself holy, so that they may be made truly holy. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 My prayer is not for them only, but for all who will have faith in me through their word; 20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
21 May they all be one! Even as you, Father, are in me and I am in you, so let them be in us, so that all men may come to have faith that you sent me. 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
22 And the glory which you have given to me I have given to them, so that they may be one even as we are one; 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:
23 I in them, and you in me, so that they may be made completely one, and so that it may become clear to all men that you have sent me and that they are loved by you as I am loved by you. 23 I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
24 Father, it is my desire that these whom you have given to me may be by my side where I am, so that they may see my glory which you have given to me, because you had love for me before the world came into being. 24 "Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
25 Father of righteousness, I have knowledge of you, though the world has not; and to these it is clear that you sent me; 25 "Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.
26 And I have given to them knowledge of your name, and will give it, so that the love which you have for me may be in them and I in them. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them."
