John 13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
13 4 Christ rising from supper, 14 to command humility to his Apostles, washeth their feet. 21 He noteth the traitor Judas, 26 with an evident token. 34 He commendeth charity. 37, 38 He foretelleth Peter of his denial.
1 Now [a]before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come, that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, forasmuch as he loved his [b]own which were in the world, unto the end he loved them.
2 And when supper was done (and that the devil had now put in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him.)
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his [c]hands, and that he was come forth from God, and went to God,
4 He [d]riseth from Supper, and layeth aside his upper garments, and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that, he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel, wherewith he was girded.
6 Then came he to Simon Peter, who said to him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do, thou knowest not now: but thou shalt know it hereafter.
8 Peter said unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou shalt have [e]no part with me.
9 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.
10 Jesus said to him, He that is washed, needeth not, save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who should betray him: therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
12 ¶ So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call me Master, and Lord, and ye say well: for so am I.
14 If I then your Lord, and Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do, even as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his master, neither the [f]ambassador greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, blessed are ye if ye do them.
18 ¶ [g]I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but it is that the Scripture might be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me, hath lift up his heel against me.
19 From henceforth tell I you before it come, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe that I am he.
20 Verily, verily I say unto you, If I send any, he that receiveth him, receiveth me, and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.
21 When Jesus had said these things, he was troubled in the Spirit, and [h]testified, and said, Verily, verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
23 Now there was one of his disciples, which [i]leaned on Jesus’ bosom, whom Jesus loved.
24 To him beckoned therefore Simon Peter, that he should ask who it was of whom he spake.
25 He then as he leaned on Jesus’ breast, said unto him, Lord, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it: and he wet a sop, and gave it to Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son.
27 And after the sop, Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28 But none of them that were at table, knew, for what cause he spake it unto him.
29 For some of them thought because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast: or that he should give something to the poor.
30 As soon then as he had received the sop, he went immediately out, and it was night.
32 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
33 [l]Little children, yet a little while am I with you: ye shall seek me, but as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, can ye not come: also to you say I now.
34 A new commandment give I unto you, that ye love one another: as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know, that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
36 [m]Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now: but thou shalt follow me afterward.
37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why can I not follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou have denied me thrice.
