John 17:1-10 CEV
(1) After Jesus had finished speaking to his disciples, he looked up toward heaven and prayed: Father, the time has come for you to bring glory to your Son, in order that he may bring glory to you. (2) And you gave him power over all people, so that he would give eternal life to everyone you give him. (3) Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, the one you sent. (4) I have brought glory to you here on earth by doing everything you gave me to do. (5) Now, Father, give me back the glory that I had with you before the world was created. (6) You have given me some followers from this world, and I have shown them what you are like. They were yours, but you gave them to me, and they have obeyed you. (7) They know that you gave me everything I have. (8) I told my followers what you told me, and they accepted it. They know that I came from you, and they believe that you are the one who sent me. (9) I am praying for them, but not for those who belong to this world. My followers belong to you, and I am praying for them. (10) All that I have is yours, and all that you have is mine, and they will bring glory to me.

John 17:1-10 LITV
(1) Jesus spoke these things and lifted up His eyes to Heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may also glorify You, (2) as You gave to Him authority over all flesh, so that to all which You gave to Him, He may give to them everlasting life. (3) And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. (4) I have glorified You on the earth. I finished the work that You gave Me to do. (5) And now Father, glorify Me with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the existence of the world. (6) 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 kept Your Word. (7) Now they have known that all things, whatever You gave to Me, are from You. (8) For the Words which You gave to Me, I have given to them. And they received and truly knew that I came out from beside You, and they believed that You sent Me. (9) I pray concerning them; I do not pray concerning the world, but concerning the ones whom You gave to Me, because they are Yours. (10) And all My things are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.

John 17:1-10 NWT
17 Jesus spoke these things, and, raising his eyes to heaven, he said: "Father, the hour has come; glorify your son, that your son may glorify you, 2 according as you have given him authority over all flesh, that, as regards the whole [number] whom you have given him, he may give them everlasting life. 3 This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. 4 I have glorified you on the earth, having finished the work you have given me to do. 5 So now you, Father, glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you before the world was. 6 "I have made your name manifest to the men you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have observed your word. 7 They have now come to know that all the things you gave me are from you; 8 because the sayings that you gave me I have given to them, and they have received them and have certainly come to know that I came out as your representative, and they have believed that you sent me forth. 9 I make request concerning them; I make request, not concerning the world, but concerning those you have given me; because they are yours, 10 and all my things are yours and yours are mine, and I have been glorified among them.
