Jesus Prays for the Father to Glorify Him1 Jesus spoke these [things], and having lifted up his eyes to heavens he said: Father, the hour is come. Glorify your son, in order that the son glorify you. 2 Just as you gave to him authority over all flesh, in order that all that you gave to him, he give to them eternal zoe-life1 . 3 This is eternal zoe-life1, that they know you the only true God and whom you sent, Jesus Christ. 4 I glorified you upon the earth, having completed the work that you gave me in order that I do [it]; 5 and now glorify me, father, in your presence2 with the glory that I had in your presence2 before the world was.
Jesus Prays for the Disciples6 I revealed your name to the men whom you gave to me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept3 your word. 7 Now they know that all, whatsoever you gave to me, is from you; 8 that the words you gave to me I have given to them, and they received [them] and they knew truly that I came from beside you2, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I ask4 concerning them, not concerning the world do I ask4, but concerning whom you have given me, because they are yours, 10 and all mine is yours and yours mine, and I have been glorified by them. 11 And no longer am I in the world, and [yet] they are in the world, and I come to you. Holy father, keep3 them in your name that you have given to me, in order that they be one just as we [are]. 12 When I was with them, I was keeping3 them in your name that you have given me, and I guarded3 [them] and no one of them perished5 except the son of destruction6, in order that the scripture be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to you, and I speak these [things] in the world in order that they have my joy made full in them. 14 I have given them your word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask4 that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the wicked7 [one]. 16 They are not of the world just as I am not of the world. 17 Make them holy in the truth; your word is truth. 18 Just as you sent me into the world, I also sent them into the world. 19 And in their behalf do I make myself holy, in order that they also be made holy in [the] truth.
Jesus Prays for Believers Everywhere20 But not concerning these only do I ask4, but also concerning those believing in me through their word, 21 in order that they all be one, just as you, father, [are] in me and I in you, in order that they also be in us, in order that the world believe that you sent me. 22 And the glory that you have given to me I have given to them, in order that they be one just as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, in order that they be completed8 into one [thing], in order that the world know you sent me and [that] you agape-loved them just as you agape-loved me.
24 Father, whom you have given me, I wish that where I am they also be with me, in order that they behold my glory, which you have given to me, because you agape-loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 Just father, the world also knew you not, but I knew you, and these [men] knew that you sent me; 26 and I made known to them your name and I will [continue to] make [it] known, in order that the agape-love with which you agape-loved me be in them and I in them.
1from ZOE "ZOH-ay" (ζωη)—Life 'collectively', interdependent, interconnected. Although it means 'life' in the conventional sense (for example: Matt.9:18, Matt.27:63, Luke.2:36, Acts.25:24, Rom.7:2, 2Cor.1:8, 1Thes.4:17, 1Tim.5:10, Rev.19:20), Jesus uses ZOE exclusively of 'life eternal' (with the possible exceptions of Luke.15:13, Luke.16:25). The other N.T. writers use ZOE in both senses—temporal and eternal, generally clear from the context. The Father is the 'zoe-living God' (see Matt.16:16). The Septuagint (LXX) in Gen.2:7 has "...[God] breathed into his nostrils the breath of zoe-life, and the man became a zoe-living psyche-life" (and see 1Cor.15:45); and Gen.3:20 (LXX) "And Adam called his wife's name ZOE, because she was the mother of all zoe-living." Contrast PSYCHE (ψυχη): an individual manifestation of life/consciousness. See John.12:25 where both ZOE and PSYCHE occur. Greek also has the word BIOS (βιoς ) for 'life' in the sense of biological processes.
3TAREO "tay-REH-oh" (τηρεω) to guard, protect; in the case of a commandment—to obey it.
6noun form of APOLLUMI, "perished", just a few words earlier in the verse
7PONEROS (πoνηρoς ) here. The Greek word KAKOS (κακoς ) is always translated `evil', PONEROS is usually translated as `wicked' although occasionally as `bad'; it can also mean 'diseased', 'sickly' and is thus translated where appropriate. Like KAKOS, PONEROS also means `evil', but the harm that evil does is more in view, where KAKOS is more `evil as evil'.
