4 I have glorified thee on the earthI have finished the workwhich thou gavest me to do.

5 And nowO Fatherglorify thou me with thine own self withthe glory which I had with thee before the world was.

6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest meout of the worldthine they wereand thou gavest them me and they have kept thy word.

7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast givenme are of thee.

8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest meandthey have received themand have known surely that I came outfrom theeand they have believed that thou didst send me.

9 I pray for themI pray not for the worldbut for them whichthou hast given mefor they are thine.

10 And all mine are thineand thine are mineand I am glorifiedin them.

11 And now I am no more in the worldbut these are in the worldand I come to thee. Holy Fatherkeep through thine own namethose whom thou hast given methat they may be oneas weare.

12 While I was with them in the worldI kept them in thy namethose that thou gavest me I have keptand none of them islostbut the son of perditionthat the scripture might befulfilled.

13 And now come I to theeand these things I speak in the world that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

14 I have given them thy wordand the world hath hated them because they are not of the worldeven as I am not of theworld.

15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the worldbutthat thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

16 They are not of the worldeven as I am not of the world.

17 Sanctify them through thy truththy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the worldeven so have I also sentthem into the world.

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myselfthat they also might besanctified through the truth.
