21 But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with [a]Mine on the table.22 For indeed, the Son of Man is going as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”23 And they began to discuss among themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing.
Who Is Greatest
24 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest.25 And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’26 But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.27 For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.

31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has [b]demanded permission to sift you like wheat;32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”33 But he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!”34 And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”
35 And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” They said, “No, nothing.”36 And He said to them, “But now, [c]whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and [d]whoever has no sword is to sell his [e]coat and buy one.37 For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, ‘And He was numbered with transgressors’; for that which refers to Me has its[f]fulfillment.”38 They said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.” And He said to them, “It is enough.”
