the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill
him; for they feared the people.
3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the
number of the twelve.
4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and
captains, how he might betray him unto them.
5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them
in the absence of the multitude.
came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and
prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye
are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher
of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the
house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I
shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12 And he shall shew you a large upper room
furnished: there make ready.
13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they
made ready the passover.
14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve
apostles with him.
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have
desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more
eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take
this, and divide it among yourselves:
18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of
the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and
gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is
given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This
cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was
determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
23 And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it
was that should do this thing.
24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be
accounted the greatest.
25 And he said unto them, The kings of the
Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority
upon them are called benefactors.
26 But ye shall not be so: but
he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is
chief, as he that doth serve.
27 For whether is greater, he that
sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at
meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
28 Ye are they which have continued with me
in my temptations.
29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my
Father hath appointed unto me;
30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in
my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy
faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both
into prison, and to death.
34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock
shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou
35 And he said unto them, When I sent you
without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they
36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that
hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and
he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37 For I say unto you, that this that is
written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the
transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he
said unto them, It is enough.
he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his
disciples also followed him.
40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray
that ye enter not into temptation.
41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stoneís cast, and
kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou
be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine,
43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening
44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat
was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples,
he found them sleeping for sorrow,
46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise
and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one
of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest
thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said
unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut
off his right ear.
51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye
thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the
temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be
ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was daily with you in the temple,
ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the
power of darkness.
took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priestís
house. And Peter followed afar off.
55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and
were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and
earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art
also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he
is a Galilaean.
60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And
immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter
remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock
crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face,
and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the
chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their
67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If
I tell you, ye will not believe:
68 And if I also ask you, ye will not
answer me, nor let me go.
69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the
right hand of the power of God.
70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said
unto them, Ye say that I am.
71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we
ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
