GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 After saying this, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, "Father, the time is here. Give your Son glory so that your Son can give you glory. 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 After all, you've given him authority over all humanity so that he can give eternal life to all those you gave 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 This is eternal life: to know you, the only true God, and 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 On earth I have given you glory by finishing 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 Now, Father, give me glory in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world existed. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 "I made your name known to the people you gave me. They are from this world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me. They did what you told them. 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 they know that everything you gave me comes from you, 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 because I gave them the message that you gave me. They have accepted this message, and they know for sure that I came from you. They have believed 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'm not praying for the world but for those you gave 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 Everything I have is yours, and everything you have is mine. I have been given glory by the people you have given me. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
11 I won't be in the world much longer, but they are in the world, and I'm coming back to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name, the name that you gave me, so that their unity may be like ours. 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 that you gave me. I watched over them, and none of them, except one person, became lost. So Scripture came 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 "But now, [Father,] I'm coming back to you. I say these things while I'm still in the world so that they will have the same joy that I have. 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 them your message. But the world has hated them because they don't belong to the world any more than I 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'm not asking you to take them out of the world but to protect 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 don't belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 "Use the truth to make them holy. Your words are truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 I have sent them into the world the same way you sent me into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 I'm dedicating myself to this holy work I'm doing for them so that they, too, will use the truth to be holy. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "I'm not praying only for them. I'm also praying for those who will believe in me through 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 all of these people continue to have unity in the way that you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray that they may be united with us so that the world will believe that you have 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 have given them the glory that you gave me. I did this so that they are united in the same way we are. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:
23 I am in them, and you are in me. So they are completely united. In this way the world knows that you have sent me and that you have loved them in the same way you have loved 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, I want those you have given to me to be with me, to be where I am. I want them to see my glory, which you gave me because 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 didn't know you. Yet, I knew you, and these [disciples] have known 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 have made your name known to them, and I will make it known so that the love you have for me will be in them and I will 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."
