New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
20 "I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony. 20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
21 My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father -- that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe 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 them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are -- 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 you in me, all being perfected into one. Then the world will know that you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love 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 whom you've given me to be with me, so they can see my glory. You gave me the glory because you loved me even before the world began! 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 doesn't know you, but I do; and these disciples 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 And I have revealed you to them and will keep on revealing you. I will do this so that your love for 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."
