New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed. He said, "Father, the time has come. Bring glory to your Son. Then your Son will bring 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 him authority over all people. He gives eternal life to all those you have given 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 what is eternal life? It is knowing you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have 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 brought you 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 So now, Father, give glory to me in heaven where your throne is. Give me the glory I had with you before the world began. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
6 "I have shown you to the disciples you gave me out of the world. They were yours. You gave them to me. And 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 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 I gave them the words you gave me. And they accepted them. They knew for certain that I came from you. 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 pray for them. I am not praying for the world. I am praying for those you have given 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. Glory has come to me because of my disciples. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
11 "I will not remain in the world any longer. But they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name. It is the name you gave me. Keep them safe so they can 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 guarded them. I kept them safe through the name you gave me. None of them has been lost, except the one who was sentenced to be destroyed. It happened so that 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 say these things while I am still in the world. I say them so that those you gave me can have all my joy inside 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 word. The world has hated them. This is because they are not part of the world any more than I am. 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 pray that you will take them out of the world. I pray that you will 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 do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to it. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Use the truth to make them holy. Your word is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 You sent me into the world. In the same way, I have sent them into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 I make myself holy for them so that they too can be made holy in a true sense. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "I do not pray only for them. I pray also for those who will 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 Father, I pray that all of them will be one, just as you are in me and I am in you. I want them also to be in us. Then 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 you gave me. I did this so they would be one, just 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 will be in them, just as you are in me. I want them to be brought together perfectly as one. This will let the world know that you sent me. It will also show the world that you have loved those you gave me, just as 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 me to be with me where I am. I want them to see my glory, the glory you have given me. You gave it to me because you loved me before the world was created. 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 holy. The world does not know you, but I know you. Those you have given me know you have 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 shown you to them. And I will continue to show you to them. Then the love you have for me will be in them. I myself 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."
