Luke 22:21-38 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)
One Will Betray Jesus
21 “But look, the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22 The Son of Man is going to go as it has been determined, but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed!”
23 They began to discuss with one another which of them it was who was going to do this.
Who Is Greatest?
24 A dispute arose among the disciples about which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 But he told 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 to be that way with you. Instead, let the greatest among you become like the youngest, and the one who leads like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, one who reclines at the table or one who serves? Isn’t it the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 You are those who have remained with me in my trials. 29 I am going to grant a kingdom to you, just as my Father granted to me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom. And you will sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
31 The Lord said, “Simon, Simon, pay attention: Satan has asked to have you all, so that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have returned to me, strengthen your brothers.”
33 He said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death!”
34 But Jesus replied, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you deny three times that you know me.”
35 He said to them, “When I sent you out without money bag, traveler’s bag, and sandals, did you lack anything?”
“Nothing,” they said.
36 Then he told them, “But now, let the one who has a money bag take it, and likewise a traveler’s bag. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘He was counted with transgressors.’[a] Indeed, what is written about me is going to have its fulfillment.”
38 They said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”
He said to them, “That is enough.”
