John 17:11-17:19

Prepared for Preservation

  1. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
  2. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
  3. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
  4. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
  5. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
  6. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
  7. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
  8. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
  9. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
