25 (A)O righteous Father, even though (B)the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 (C)I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love (D)with which you have loved me may be in them, and (E)I in them.”

Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

18 When Jesus had spoken these words, (F)he went out with his disciples across (G)the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew (H)the place, for (I)Jesus often met there with his disciples. (J)So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons. Then Jesus, (K)knowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them, (L)“Whom do you seek?” They answered him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am he.”[a] Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. (M)When Jesus[b] said to them, “I am he”, they drew back and fell to the ground. So he asked them again, (N)“Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. So, if you seek me, let these men go.” (O)This was to fulfil the word that he had spoken: “Of those whom you gave me I have lost not one.” 10 Then Simon Peter, (P)having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant[c] and cut off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.) 11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; (Q)shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?”
