    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:15

    No ruego que los quites del mundo, sino que los guardes del mal.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 17:15

    Verse 15. That thou shouldest take them out of the
    world] They must not yet leave the land of Judea: they had not as yet borne their testimony there, concerning Christ crucified and risen again from the dead. To take them away before this work was finished would not answer the gracious design of God.-1. Christ does not desire that his faithful apostles should soon die, and be taken to God. No: but that they may live long, labour long, and bring forth much fruit. 2. He does not intimate that they should seclude themselves from the world by going to the desert, or to the cloisters; but that they should continue in and among the world, that they may have the opportunity of recommending the salvation of God. 3.

    Christ only prays that while they are in the world, employed in the work of the ministry, they may be preserved from the influence, tou ponhrou, of the evil one, the devil, who had lately entered into Judas, chap. xiii. 27, and who would endeavour to enter into them, ruin their souls, and destroy their work. A devil without can do no harm; but a devil within ruins all.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. I pray not that thou shouldest take theft of the world , etc.] Either in an unusual manner, by a translation, as Enoch and Elijah were; or by death in its common form, before their time, and purely to be rid of afflictions: this he prayed not for; for he had much work for them to do, by preaching the Gospel, for the conversion of sinners and comfort of saints; and it was for his interest they should live longer; and it would make most for his glory, and be best for his chosen people and churches: but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil ; either of sin, which is an evil and bitter thing, being committed against a good God, and a righteous law, and brings ruin and destruction upon men; from this the apostles were kept, and all the saints are; not from indwelling sin, nor from the commission of sin, but from the dominion of it, and from falling into it and by it, so as to perish eternally: or from the evil of the world; not from afflictions in it; nor from the reproach and persecution of it; but from its wickedness and lusts, and from the evil men of it: or from Satan the evil one, who is eminently, originally, and immutably so; not from being tempted by him, but from sinking under his temptations, and from being devoured by him. Christs praying for this, after this manner, shows that evil is very abhorrent, pernicious and powerful; the danger saints are in by it; their incapacity to keep themselves from it; and that the Lord alone is the keeper of his people; but does not suggest that Christ has dropped the charge of them, or is unequal to it; but by so doing he expresses his great love to them, how dear they are to him, and what care he takes of them, and what concern he has for them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-16 -
    Christ does not pray that they might be rich and great in the world but that they might be kept from sin, strengthened for their duty, an brought safe to heaven. The prosperity of the soul is the bes prosperity. He pleaded with his holy Father, that he would keep them by his power and for his glory, that they might be united in affection an labours, even according to the union of the Father and the Son. He di not pray that his disciples should be removed out of the world, tha they might escape the rage of men, for they had a great work to do for the glory of God, and the benefit of mankind. But he prayed that the Father would keep them from the evil, from being corrupted by the world, the remains of sin in their hearts, and from the power and craf of Satan. So that they might pass through the world as through a enemy's country, as he had done. They are not left here to pursue the same objects as the men around them, but to glorify God, and to serv their generation. The Spirit of God in true Christians is opposed to the spirit of the world.

    15. From the
    evil (tou ponhrou). Or, the evil one. This rendering is according to John's usage. See 1 John ii. 13, 14; iii. 12; v. 18, 19; and compare xii. 31; xiv. 30; xvi. 11. From (ek), literally, out of, means out of the hands of.
