9 I am askingXLI on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I have been glorified in them. 11 And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am comingXLII to you. HolyXLIII Father, protectXLIV them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one,XLV as we are one.
12 While I was with them, I protected them in your name that you have given me. I guardedXLVI them, and not one of them was lostXLVII except the one destined to be lost,XLVIII so that the scriptureXLIX might be fulfilled.L
15 I am not asking you to takeLVII them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one.LVIII 16 They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 17 SanctifyLIX them
in the truth;LX your wordLXI is truth.LXII 18 As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.LXIII
20 “I ask not onlyLXIV on behalf of these but also on behalf of those who believe in me through their word,LXV 21 that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one,LXVI so that the world may know that you have sent me and have lovedLXVII them even as you have loved me.
25 “RighteousLXXI Father, the world does not know you, but I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 I made your name knownLXXII to them, and I will make it known, so that the loveLXXIII with which you have loved me may be in them and I in them.”
