John 17:6-11

6 1"I have manifested your name to the people 2whom you gave me out of the world. 3Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
7 Now they know that everything 4that you have given me is from you.
8 For I have given them 5the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that 6I came from you; and 7they have believed that you sent me.
9 I am praying for them. 8I am not praying for the world but for those 9whom you have given me, for 10they are yours.
10 11All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and 12I am glorified in them.
11 And I am no longer in the world, but 13they are in the world, and 14I am coming to you. 15Holy Father, 16keep them in your name, 17which you have given me, 18that they may be one, 19even as we are one.
