I did manifest Thy name to the men whom Thou hast given to me out of the world; Thine they were, and to me Thou hast given them, and Thy word they have kept;
now they have known that all things, as many as Thou hast given to me, are from Thee,
because the sayings that Thou hast given to me, I have given to them, and they themselves received, and have known truly, that from Thee I came forth, and they did believe that Thou didst send me.
`I ask in regard to them; not in regard to the world do I ask, but in regard to those whom Thou hast given to me, because Thine they are,
and all mine are Thine, and Thine [are] mine, and I have been glorified in them;
and no more am I in the world, and these are in the world, and I come unto Thee. Holy Father, keep them in Thy name, whom Thou hast given to me, that they may be one as we;
when I was with them in the world, I was keeping them in Thy name; those whom Thou hast given to me I did guard, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of the destruction, that the Writing may be fulfilled.
`And now unto Thee I come, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves;
I have given to them Thy word, and the world did hate them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world;
I do not ask that Thou mayest take them out of the world, but that Thou mayest keep them out of the evil.
`Of the world they are not, as I of the world am not;
sanctify them in Thy truth, Thy word is truth;
as Thou didst send me to the world, I also did send them to the world;
and for them do I sanctify myself, that they also themselves may be sanctified in truth.
