NASB — John 17 — KJV

The High Priestly Prayer

1 Jesus spoke these things; and alifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; bglorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You, 2 even as aYou gave Him authority over all flesh, that bto Iall whom You have given Him, cHe may give eternal life. 3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, athe only true God, and Jesus Christ whom bYou have sent. 4 aI glorified You on the earth, Ibhaving accomplished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 Now, Father, aglorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had bwith You before the world was.

Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him,

1 ¶ These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
