John 17:11-21 CEV
(11) Holy Father, I am no longer in the world. I am coming to you, but my followers are still in the world. So keep them safe by the power of the name that you have given me. Then they will be one with each other, just as you and I are one. (12) While I was with them, I kept them safe by the power you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost, except the one who had to be lost. This happened so that what the Scriptures say would come true. (13) I am on my way to you. But I say these things while I am still in the world, so that my followers will have the same complete joy that I do. (14) I have told them your message. But the people of this world hate them, because they don't belong to this world, just as I don't. (15) Father, I don't ask you to take my followers out of the world, but keep them safe from the evil one. (16) They don't belong to this world, and neither do I. (17) Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours. (18) I am sending them into the world, just as you sent me. (19) I have given myself completely for their sake, so that they may belong completely to the truth. (20) I am not praying just for these followers. I am also praying for everyone else who will have faith because of what my followers will say about me. (21) I want all of them to be one with each other, just as I am one with you and you are one with me. I also want them to be one with us. Then the people of this world will believe that you sent me.

John 17:11-21 LITV
(11) And no longer am I in the world, yet these are in the world; and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, those whom You gave to Me, that they may be one as We are. (12) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name; I guarded those whom You gave to Me, and not one of them was lost, except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. (13) And now I come to You, and I speak these things in the world, that they may have My joy being fulfilled in them. (14) I have given them Your Word, and the world hated them because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. (15) I do not pray that You take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the evil. (16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. (17) Sanctify them in Your Truth; Your Word is Truth. (18) As You have sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world, (19) and I sanctify Myself for them, that they also may be sanctified in Truth. (20) And I do not pray concerning these only, but also concerning those who will believe in Me through their word; (21) that all may be one, as You are in Me, Father, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

John 17:11-21 NWT
. . .Also, I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world and I am coming to you. Holy Father, watch over them on account of your own name which you have given me, in order that they may be one just as we are. 12 When I was with them I used to watch over them on account of your own name which you have given me; and I have kept them, and not one of them is destroyed except the son of destruction, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I am coming to you, and I am speaking these things in the world in order that they may have my joy in themselves to the full. 14 I have given your word to them, but the world has hated them, because they are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 15 "I request you, not to take them out of the world, but to watch over them because of the wicked one. 16 They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. 18 Just as you sent me forth into the world, I also sent them forth into the world. 19 And I am sanctifying myself in their behalf, that they also may be sanctified by means of truth. 20 I make request, not concerning these only, but also concerning those putting faith in me through their word; 21 in order that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me and I am in union with you, that they also may be in union with us, in order that the world may believe that you sent me forth."
