Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Jesus finished saying this, he looked up to heaven and said, "Father, the hour has 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 For you gave him authority over all people, so that he might give eternal life to all those you gave 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 eternal life means to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, whom you sent. 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 shown your glory on earth; I have finished the work you gave me to do. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 Father! Give me glory in your presence now, the same glory I had with you before the world was made. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 "I have made you known to those you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me. They have obeyed your word, 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 and now they know that everything you gave me comes from you. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 I gave them the message that you gave me, and they received it; they know that it is true that I came from you, and they believe 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 "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those you gave me, for they belong to you. 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 I have is yours, and all you have is mine; and my glory is shown through 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 am coming to you; I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world. Holy Father! Keep them safe by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one just as you and I 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 by the power of your name, the name you gave me. I protected them, and not one of them was lost, except the man who was bound to be lost - so that the scripture 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 am coming to you, and I say these things in the world so that they might have my joy in their hearts in all its fullness. 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 gave them your message, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to 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 I do not ask you to take them out of the world, but I do ask you to keep them safe 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 Just as I do not belong to the world, they do not belong to the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Dedicate them to yourself by means of the truth; your word is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 I sent them into the world, just as you sent me into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 And for their sake I dedicate myself to you, in order that they, too, may be truly dedicated to you. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "I pray not only for them, but also for those who believe in me because of their message. 20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
21 I pray that they may all be one. Father! May they be in us, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they be one, so that the world will believe 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 I gave them the same glory you gave me, so that they may be one, just as you and I 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 completely one, in order that the world may know that you sent me and that you love them as you love me. 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! You have given them to me, and I want them to be with me where I am, so that they may see my glory, the glory you gave me; for you loved me before the world was made. 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 Righteous Father! The world does not know you, but I know you, and these know 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 I made you known to them, and I will continue to do so, in order that the love you have for me may be in them, and so that I also may be 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."
