The Best and Most Important Online Catholic Books: The Gospel of St. John
Christ's prayer for his disciples.
1 These things Jesus spoke, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said; Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee.
2 *As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he may give life everlasting to all whom thou hast given him.
3 Now this is life everlasting, that they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee upon the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do:
5 And now glorify thou me, O Father, with thyself, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gavest them: and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things which thou hast given me are from thee.
8 Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them: and they have received them, and have known for certain that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me: because they are thine:
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, whom thou hast given me: that they may be one, as we also are.
12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. *Those whom thou gavest me, I have kept: and none of them hath perished, but the son of perdition, **that the Scripture may be fulfilled.
13 And now I come to thee: and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world: as I also am not of the world.
15 I do not ask that thou take them away out of the world, but that thou preserve them from evil.
16 They are not of the world: as I also am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
19 And for them do I sanctify myself: that they also may be sanctified in truth.
20 And not for them only do I pray, but for those also who through their word shall believe in me.
21 That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them: that they may be one, as we also are one.
23 I in them, and thou in me: that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.
24 Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me, may be with me: that they may see my glory, which thou hast given me: because thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world.
25 Just Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee: and these have known, that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have made known thy name to them, and will make it known: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.
