Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to 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 since thou hast given him power over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom 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 eternal life, that they 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 glorified thee on earth, having accomplished 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, Father, glorify thou me in thy own presence with the glory which I had with thee before the world was made. 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 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 know that everything that thou hast given me is from thee; 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
8 for I have given them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them and know in truth 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 am praying for them; I am not praying for the world but for those whom thou hast given 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 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 they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we 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 kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me; I have guarded them, 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 But now I am coming 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 them thy word; and the world has 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 do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep 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 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 in the truth; thy word is truth. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
18 As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
19 And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
20 "I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in 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 may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so 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 The glory which thou hast given 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 become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even 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 desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am, to behold my glory which thou hast given me in thy love for 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 has not known thee, but I have known thee; and these know 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 I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, 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."
