Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 17:9-14

_ _ I pray for them — not as individuals merely, but as representatives of all such in every succeeding age (see on John 17:20).

_ _ not for the world — for they had been given Him “out of the world” (John 17:6), and had been already transformed into the very opposite of it. The things sought for them, indeed, are applicable only to such.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 17:6-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 17:9

I pray not for the world — Not in these petitions, which are adapted to the state of believers only. (He prays for the world at John 17:21, John 17:23, that they may believe — That they may know God hath sent him.) This no more proves that our Lord did not pray for the world, both before and afterward, than his praying for the apostles alone, John 17:6-19, proves that he did not pray for them also which shall believe through their word, John 17:20.
