The High Priest Questions Jesus

19 (A)The high priest then questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. 20 Jesus answered him, “I have spoken (B)openly (C)to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. (D)I have said nothing in secret. 21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me what I said to them; they know what I said.” 22 When he had said these things, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, (E)“Is that how you answer the high priest?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If what I said is wrong, bear witness about the wrong; but if what I said is right, why do you strike me?” 24 (F)Annas then sent him bound to (G)Caiaphas the high priest.

Peter Denies Jesus Again

25 (H)Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. So they said to him, “You also are not one of his disciples, are you?” He denied it and said, “I am not.” 26 One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of (I)the man whose ear Peter had cut off, asked, “Did I not see you (J)in the garden with him?” 27 Peter again denied it, and (K)at once a rooster crowed.

21 “For his eyes are on (A)the ways of a man,
    and he sees all his (B)steps.
22 There is no (C)gloom or (D)deep darkness
    where evildoers may hide themselves.
23 For God[a] has no need to consider a man further,
    that he should go before God in (E)judgment.
24 He (F)shatters the mighty without investigation
    and sets (G)others in their place.
25 Thus, knowing their works,
    he (H)overturns them in the night, and they are crushed.
26 He strikes them for their wickedness
    in a place for all to see,
27 because they turned aside from (I)following him
    and had no regard for any of his ways,
28 so that they (J)caused the cry of the poor to come to him,
    and he (K)heard the cry of the afflicted—
29 When he is quiet, who can condemn?
    When he hides his face, who can behold him,
    whether it be a nation or a man?—
30 that a godless man should not reign,
    that he should not ensnare the people.

31 “For has anyone said to God,
    ‘I have borne punishment; I will not offend any more;
32 (L)teach me what I do not see;
    if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more’?
33 Will he then make repayment to suit you,
    because you reject it?
For you must choose, and not I;
    therefore (M)declare what you know.[b]
34 Men of understanding will say to me,
    and the wise man who hears me will say:
35 ‘Job (N)speaks without knowledge;
    his words are without insight.’
36 Would that Job were tried to the end,
    because he answers like wicked men.
37 For he adds rebellion to his sin;
    he (O)claps his hands among us
    and multiplies his words against God.”
