Yokhanan 17 – יוחנן יז


1Yeshua spoke these things, and then He lifted up His eyes to Heaven and said, “O Avi, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify You, 2since You have given Him power over all flesh, so that to all whom You have given Him, He may give life eternal.  3And this is life eternal, that they might know You, that You are the only true Elohim, even the one who sent Yeshua HaMashi’akh.  4I have already glorified You on the earth; for the work which You have given to me to do, I have finished.  5So now, O Avi, glorify me with You, with the same glory which I had with You before the world was made.”

6“I have made Your Name known to the men whom You gave me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to me; and they have kept Your D’var.  7Now they know that whatever You have given me is from You.  8For the words which You gave me I gave to them; and they accepted them, and have known truly that I came forth from You, and they have believed that You have sent me.  9What I request is for them; I make no request for the world, but for those whom You have given to me, because they are Yours.  10And everything which is mine is Yours, and what is Yours is mine, and I am glorified by them.”

11“Hereafter I am not in the world, but these are in the world; and I am coming to You. O Av Kadosh, protect them in Your Name, which You have given me, that they may be one, even as we are.  12While I was with them in the world, I protected them in Your Name; those whom you gave me I protected, and not one of them is lost, except the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.  13Now I am coming to You, and these things I speak while I am in the world, that my joy may be complete in them.  14I have given them Your D’var; and the world hated them, because they were not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  15What I request is not that You should take them out of the world, but that You should protect them from evil.  16For they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.”

17“O Abba, consecrate them in Your truth, because Your D’var is truth.  18Just as You did send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.  19And for their sakes, I am setting myself apart, so that they also may be consecrated in the truth.”

20“I am not making request for these alone, but also for the sake of those who trust in me through their word.  21So that they all may be one; just as You, Avi, are in me, and I am in You, that they also may be one in us; so that the world may believe that You did send me.  22And the glory which You gave me, I gave to them; so that they may be one just as we are one.  23I in them and You in me, that they may become perfected in one; so that the world may know that You did send me, and that You did love them just as You loved me.”

24“O Abba, I desire that those whom You have given me may also be with me where I am, so that they may see my glory which You have given me; for You have loved me before the foundation of the world.  25O Avi HaTzadik, the world did not know You, but I have known You; and these have known that You have sent me.  26And I have made Your Name known to them, and I am still making it known, so that the love with which You have loved me may be among them, and I may be in them.”
