New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
6 "I have told these men about you. They were in the world, but then you gave them to me. Actually, they were always yours, and you gave them to me; and they have kept 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 I have is a gift from you, 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 for I have passed on to them the words you gave me; and they accepted them and know that I came from you, and they believe 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 "My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you. 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 of them, since they are mine, belong to you; and you have given them back to me, so they are my glory! 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
11 Now I am departing the world; I am leaving them behind and coming to you. Holy Father, keep them and care for them -- all those you have given me -- so that they will be united just 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 During my time here, I have kept them safe. I guarded them so that not one was lost, except the one headed for destruction, as the Scriptures foretold." 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 am coming to you. I have told them many things while I was with them so they would be filled with my joy. 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. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not. 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'm 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 are not part of this world any more than I am. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.
17 Make them pure and holy by teaching them your words of truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 As you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 And I give myself entirely to you so they also might be entirely yours." 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
