New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Jesus said these things, he looked toward heaven and prayed, "Father, the time has come. Give glory to your Son so that the Son can 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 You gave the Son power over all people so that the Son could 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 this is eternal life: that people know you, the only true God, and that they know Jesus Christ, the One 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 Having finished the work you gave me to do, I brought you glory on earth. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 And now, Father, give me glory with you; give me the 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 showed what you are like to those you gave me from the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have obeyed your teaching. 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 I gave them the teachings you gave me, and they accepted them. They knew that I truly came from you, and they 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 am praying for them. I am not praying for people in 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 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 I am coming to you; I will not stay in the world any longer. But they are still in the world. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they will 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 only one of them, the one worthy of destruction, was lost so that the Scripture would 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 "I am coming to you now. But I pray these things while I am still in the world so that these followers can have all of my joy 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 them your teaching. And the world has hated them, because they don't belong to the world, just as I don't 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 am not asking you to take them out of the world but 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 They don't belong to the world, just as I don't belong to the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Make them ready for your service through your truth; your teaching is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 I have 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 For their sake, I am making myself ready to serve so that they can be ready for their service of the truth. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "I pray for these followers, but I am also praying for all those who will believe in me because of their teaching. 20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
21 Father, I pray that they can be one. As you are in me and I am in you, I pray that they can also be one in us. Then 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 have given these people the glory that you gave me so that they can 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 will be in them and you will be in me so that they will be completely one. Then the world will know that you sent me and that you loved them just as much as you 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 these people that you gave me to be with me 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 Father, you are the One who is good. The world does not know you, but I know you, and these people know 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 showed them what you are like, and I will show them again. Then they will have the same love that you have for me, and I will live 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."
