The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 These words spoke Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 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 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast 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 this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast 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 glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thy ownself, with the glory which I had with thee 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 manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest to me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy 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 have known that all things whatever thou hast given me are from thee. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 For I have given to them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send 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 pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given to me; for they are thine. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified 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 am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thy own name those whom thou hast given to me, that they may be one, as we [are]. 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 in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest to me I have kept, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 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 thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 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 to them thy word; and the world hath hated them, 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 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil. 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, even as I am not of the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 Neither pray I for these alone; but for them also who shall believe on 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 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast 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 thou gavest to me, I have given to them; 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 thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them as thou hast 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 will that they also whom thou hast given to me be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given to me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 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 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast 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 declared to them thy name, and will declare [it]: that the love with which thou hast loved 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."
