John 17:1-26

Jesus Prays to Be Glorified

1After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:

“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

6“I have revealed you17:6 Greek your name to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of17:11 Or Father, keep them faithful to your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by17:12 Or kept them faithful to that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

13“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17Sanctify them by17:17 Or them to live in accordance with the truth; your word is truth. 18As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

Jesus Prays for All Believers

20“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

25“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26I have made you17:26 Greek your name known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Knijga O Kristu

Ivan 17:1-26

Isusova molitva

1Pošto je Isus sve to rekao, pogleda prema nebu i nastavi:

“Oče, došao je čas! Proslavi svojeg Sina da on može proslaviti tebe. 2Jer ti si mu dao vlast nad svim ljudima na zemlji. On daje vječni život svakomu koga si mu ti dao. 3A vječni život jest spoznati tebe, jedinoga, istinitoga Boga, i Isusa Krista, koga si ti poslao. 4Pronio sam tvoju slavu ovdje na zemlji čineći sve što si mi rekao da učinim. 5A sada ti mene, Oče, proslavi slavom koju sam dijelio s tobom prije postanka svijeta.

Molitva za učenice

6Ovim sam ljudima rekao sve o tebi. Bili su u svijetu, ali ti si mi ih dao. Zapravo su oduvijek i bili tvoji, ali dao si ih meni i poslušali su tvoje riječi. 7Sad su spoznali da je sve što imam od tebe 8jer sam im prenio riječi koje si mi dao. Prihvatili su ih, pa tako sigurno znaju da sam izišao od tebe i vjeruju da si me ti poslao.

9Moja molitva nije za svijet, već za one koje si mi dao jer tebi pripadaju. 10Svi oni koji su moji pripadaju tebi, i svi koji su tvoji pripadaju meni. U njima sam se proslavio. 11Sad odlazim s ovog svijeta, ostavljam ih i idem tebi. Sveti Oče, brini se za njih i dalje, očuvaj sve one koje si mi dao u svojem imenu da budu sjedinjeni baš kao i mi. 12Dok sam bio s njima, očuvao sam u tvojem imenu sve one koje si mi dao. Čuvao sam ih da nijedan osim sina pogibli ne propadne da se obistini proročanstvo iz Svetoga pisma.

13A sada idem tebi. Ovo govorim dok sam u svijetu kako bi oni u sebi imali moju radost u svoj punini. 14Dao sam im tvoju riječ, a svijet ih je zamrzio jer ne pripadaju svijetu, baš kao ni ja. 15Ne molim te da ih uzmeš sa svijeta, već da ih očuvaš od zla. 16Nisu više od ovoga svijeta, kao što ni ja nisam od svijeta. 17Posveti ih istinom; tvoje su riječi istina. 18Kao što si mene poslao u svijet, tako i ja njih šaljem. 19I ja se posvećujem za njih da i oni budu posvećeni istinom.

Molitva za sve vjernice

20Ne molim te samo za ove nego i za sve koji će povjerovati u mene zbog njihova svjedočanstva. 21Moja je molitva za sve njih da budu jedno, baš kao što smo ti i ja, Oče, ti u meni i ja u tebi, neka tako i oni budu jedno u nama da svijet povjeruje da si me ti poslao. 22Ja sam im dao slavu koju si mi ti dao; da budu jedno kao što smo i mi— 23ja u njima, a ti u meni, da budu savršeno jedno. Tako će svijet spoznati da si me ti poslao i shvatiti da ih voliš kao što voliš mene.

24Oče, želim da budu sa mnom—svi koje si mi dao—neka gledaju moju slavu koju si mi dao jer si me volio još prije postanka svijeta!

25Pravedni Oče, svijet te ne poznaje, ali ja te poznajem. I ovi su učenici spoznali da si me ti poslao. 26Njima sam otkrio tebe i dalje ću te objavljivati da žarka ljubav kojom mene voliš bude u njima i da ja budem u njima!”
