John 17:11-15

11 And I am no longer in the world, but 1they are in the world, and 2I am coming to you. 3Holy Father, 4keep them in your name, 5which you have given me, 6that they may be one, 7even as we are one.
12 8While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have 9guarded them, and 10not one of them has been lost except 11the son of destruction, 12that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 But now 13I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have 14my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 15I have given them your word, and 16the world has hated them 17because they are not of the world, 18just as I am not of the world.
15 I 19do not ask that you 20take them out of the world, but that you 21keep them from 22the evil one.[a]
