John 17

ESV 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, MSG 1 Jesus said these things. Then, raising his eyes in prayer, he said: Father, it's time. Display the bright splendor of your Son So the Son in turn may show your bright splendor. ESV 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. MSG 2 You put him in charge of everything human So he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge. ESV 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. MSG 3 And this is the real and eternal life: That they know you, The one and only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom you sent. ESV 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. MSG 4 I glorified you on earth By completing down to the last detail What you assigned me to do. ESV 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed. MSG 5 And now, Father, glorify me with your very own splendor, The very splendor I had in your presence Before there was a world. ESV 6 "I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. MSG 6 I spelled out your character in detail To the men and women you gave me. They were yours in the first place; Then you gave them to me, And they have now done what you said. ESV 7 Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. MSG 7 They know now, beyond the shadow of a doubt, That everything you gave me is firsthand from you, ESV 8 For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. MSG 8 For the message you gave me, I gave them; And they took it, and were convinced That I came from you. They believed that you sent me. ESV 9 I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. MSG 9 I pray for them. I'm not praying for the God-rejecting world But for those you gave me, For they are yours by right. ESV 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. MSG 10 Everything mine is yours, and yours mine, And my life is on display in them. ESV 11 And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. MSG 11 For I'm no longer going to be visible in the world; They'll continue in the world While I return to you. Holy Father, guard them as they pursue this life That you conferred as a gift through me, So they can be one heart and mind ESV 12 While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. MSG 12 As we are one heart and mind. As long as I was with them, I guarded them In the pursuit of the life you gave through me; I even posted a night watch. And not one of them got away, Except for the rebel bent on destruction (the exception that proved the rule of Scripture). ESV 13 But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. MSG 13 Now I'm returning to you. I'm saying these things in the world's hearing So my people can experience My joy completed in them. ESV 14 I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. MSG 14 I gave them your word; The godless world hated them because of it, Because they didn't join the world's ways, ESV 15 I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. MSG 15 Just as I didn't join the world's ways. I'm not asking that you take them out of the world But that you guard them from the Evil One. ESV 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. MSG 16 They are no more defined by the world Than I am defined by the world. ESV 17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. MSG 17 Make them holy - consecrated - with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth. ESV 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. MSG 18 In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world. ESV 19 And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. MSG 19 I'm consecrating myself for their sakes So they'll be truth-consecrated in their mission. ESV 20 "I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, MSG 20 I'm praying not only for them But also for those who will believe in me Because of them and their witness about me. ESV 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. MSG 21 The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind - Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. ESV 22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, MSG 22 The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So they'll be as unified and together as we are - ESV 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. MSG 23 I in them and you in me. Then they'll be mature in this oneness, And give the godless world evidence That you've sent me and loved them In the same way you've loved me. ESV 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. MSG 24 Father, I want those you gave me To be with me, right where I am, So they can see my glory, the splendor you gave me, Having loved me Long before there ever was a world. ESV 25 O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. MSG 25 Righteous Father, the world has never known you, But I have known you, and these disciples know That you sent me on this mission. ESV 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them." MSG 26 I have made your very being known to them - Who you are and what you do - And continue to make it known, So that your love for me Might be in them Exactly as I am in them.
