Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had thus spoken, He raised his eyes towards Heaven and said, "Father, the hour has come. Glorify Thy Son that the Son 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 even as Thou hast given Him authority over all mankind, so that on all whom Thou hast given Him He may bestow the Life of the Ages. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.
3 And in this consists the Life of the Ages--in knowing 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 earth, having done perfectly the work which by Thine appointment has been mine to do. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 And now, Father, do Thou glorify me in Thine own presence, with the glory that I had in Thy presence 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 have revealed Thy perfections to the men whom Thou gavest me out of the world. Thine they were, and Thou gavest them to me, and they have obeyed Thy message. 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 whatever Thou hast given me is from Thee. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 For the truths which Thou didst teach me I have taught them. And they have received them, and have known for certain that I came out from Thy presence, and 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 am making request for them: for the world I do not make any request, but for those whom Thou hast given me. Because 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 everything that is mine is Thine, and everything that is Thine is mine; and I am crowned with glory in them. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
11 I am now no longer in the world, but they are in the world and I am coming to Thee. "Holy Father, keep them true to Thy name--the name which Thou hast given me to bear--that they may be one, even 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, I kept them true to Thy name--the name Thou hast given me to bear--and I kept watch over them, and not one of them is lost but only he who is doomed to destruction--that the Scripture may 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 "But now I am coming to Thee, and I speak these words while I am in the world, in order that they may have my gladness within them filling their hearts. 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 Thy Message, and the world has 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 that Thou wilt remove them out of the world, but that Thou wilt 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 do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Make them holy in the truth: Thy Message is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 Just as Thou didst send me into the world, I also have sent them; 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 and on their behalf I consecrate myself, in order that they may become perfectly consecrated in truth. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "Nor is it for them alone that I make request. It is also for those who trust in me through their teaching; 20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
21 that they may all be one, even as Thou art in me, O Father, and I am in Thee; that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send 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 hast given me I have given them, that they may 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 in them and Thou in me; that they may stand perfected in one; that the world may come to understand that Thou didst send me and hast loved them with the same love as that with which 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, those whom Thou hast given me--I desire that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see the glory--my glory--my gift from Thee, which Thou hast given me because Thou didst love me before the creation 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 And, righteous Father, though the world has failed to recognize Thee, I have known Thee, and these have perceived that Thou didst send 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 made known Thy name to them and will make it known, that the love with which Thou hast loved me may be in them, and that I 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."
