Luke 22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

22 And the holiday of therf loaves, that is said pask, approached.[a]

And the princes of priests and the scribes sought, how they should slay Jesus, but they dreaded the people.

And Satan entered into Judas, that was called Iscariot, one of the twelve.

And he went, and spake with the princes of priests, and with the magistrates, how he should betray him to them.

And they joyed, and made covenant to give him money.

And he promised, and he sought opportunity, to betray him, without the people. [And he promised, and he sought covenability, that he should betray him, without the companies.]

But the days of therf loaves came, in which it was need, that the sacrifice of pask were slain [in which it was need, that pask, that is, the sacrifice of pask, be slain].

And he sent Peter and John, and said [saying], Go ye, and make ready to us the pask, that we eat.

And they said, Where wilt thou, that we make ready?

10 And he said to them, Lo! when ye shall enter into the city, a man bearing a vessel of water shall meet you; follow ye him into the house, into which he entereth.

11 And ye shall say to the husbandman of the house, The master saith to thee, Where is a chamber [Where is the harbourgerie], where I shall eat the pask with my disciples?

12 And he shall show to you a great supping place strewed, and there make ye ready.

13 And they went, and found as he said to them, and they made ready the pask.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat to the meat [he sat to meat], and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said to them, With desire I have desired to eat with you this pask, before that I suffer;

16 for I say to you, that from this time I shall not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the realm of God.

17 And when he had taken the cup, he did graces [he did thankings], and said, Take ye, and part ye among you;

18 for I say to you, that I shall not drink of the kind of this vine [soothly I say to you, I shall not drink of the generation of this vine], till the realm of God come.

19 And when he had taken bread, he did thankings, and brake, and gave to them, and said, This is my body, that shall be given for you; do ye this thing in mind of me. [And the bread taken, he did graces, or thankings, and brake, and gave to them, saying, This is my body, which shall be given for you; do ye this thing into my commemoration, or into mind of me.]

20 He took also the cup, after that he had supped, and said, This cup is the new testament in my blood, that shall be shed for you. [Also and the chalice, after that he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.]

21 Nevertheless lo! the hand of him that betrayeth me, is with me at the table.

22 And [soothly] man's Son goeth, as it is determined; nevertheless woe to that man, by whom he shall be betrayed.

23 And they began to seek among them[selves], who it was of them, that was to do this thing.

24 And strife was made among them, which of them should be seen to be greatest.

25 But he said to them, Kings of heathen men be lords of them, and they that have power on them be called good doers, [Forsooth he said to them, Kings of heathen men be lords, or lordship, of them, and they that have power upon them be called good doers,]

26 but ye not so; but he that is greatest among you, be made as a younger [be made as the younger], and he that is [a] before-goer, as a servant.

27 For who is greater, he that sitteth at the meat, or he that ministereth? whether not he that sitteth at the meat? And I am in the middle of you [Forsooth I am in the midst of you], as he that ministereth.

28 And ye [it] be, that have dwelled with me in my temptations; [Soothly ye it be that have dwelt with me in my temptations;]

29 and I assign to you, as my Father hath assigned to me, a realm, [and I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a realm,]

30 that ye eat and drink on my board in my realm, and sit on thrones, and deem the twelve kindreds of Israel [deeming the twelve kindreds of Israel].

31 And the Lord said to Simon, Simon, lo! Satan hath asked (for) you, that he should riddle you as wheat;

32 but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not; and thou sometime converted [and thou converted sometime], confirm thy brethren.

33 Which said to him, Lord, I am ready to go into prison and into death with thee. [Which said to him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, and into prison and into death.]

34 And he said, I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow to day, till thou thrice forsake that thou knowest me.

35 And he said to them, When I sent you without satchel, and scrip, and shoes, whether any thing failed to you? And they said, Nothing.

36 Therefore he said to them, But now he that hath a satchel, take also and a scrip; and he that hath none [and he that hath not], sell his coat, and buy a sword.

37 For I say to you, that yet it behooveth that thing [this thing] that is written to be fulfilled in me, And he is areckoned with wicked men; for those things that be of me have an end.

38 And they said, Lord, lo! two swords here. And he said to them, It is enough.

39 And he went out, and went after the custom into the hill of Olives [And he gone out, went by custom into the hill of Olives]; and the disciples followed him.

40 And when he came to the place, he said to them, Pray ye, lest ye enter into temptation.

41 And he was taken away from them, as much as is a stone's cast; and he kneeled, and prayed,

42 and said [saying], Father, if thou wilt, do away this cup from me; nevertheless not my will be done, but thine [nevertheless not my will, but thine be done].

43 And an angel appeared to him from heaven, and comforted him [comforting him].

44 And he was made in agony, and prayed the longer [And he made in agony, either anguish, prayed longer]; and his sweat was made as drops of blood running down into the earth.

45 And when he was risen from prayer [And when he had risen from prayer], and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for heaviness.

46 And he said to them, What sleep ye? Rise ye, and pray ye [Rise ye, and pray], that ye enter not into temptation.

47 Yet while he spake, lo! a company, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them; and he came [nigh] to Jesus, to kiss him.

48 And Jesus said to him, Judas, betrayest thou man's Son with a kiss?

49 And they that were about him, and saw that that was to come, said to him, Lord, whether we smite with sword?

50 And one of them smote the servant of the prince of priests, and cut off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, and said, Suffer ye till hither. And when he had touched his ear, he healed him.

52 And Jesus said to them, that came to him, the princes of priests, and magistrates of the temple [and magistrates, or masters, of the temple], and elder men, As to a thief ye have gone out with swords and staves?

53 When I was each day with you in the temple, ye stretched not out [the] hands into me; but this is your hour, and the power of darknesses.

54 And they took him, and led to the house of the prince of priests; and Peter followed him afar.

55 And when a fire was kindled in the middle of the great house, and they sat about, Peter was in the middle of them.

56 Whom when a damsel had seen sitting at the light[b], and had beheld him, she said, And this was with him.

57 And he denied him, and said [saying], Woman, I know him not.

58 And after a little another man saw him, and said, And thou art of them. But Peter said, A! man, I am not.

59 And when a space was made as of one hour, [soothly] another affirmed, and said [saying], Truly this was with him; for also he is of Galilee.

60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And at once [And anon] yet while he spake, the cock crew.

61 And the Lord turned again [And the Lord turned], and beheld Peter; and Peter had mind of the word of Jesus, as he had said, Before that the cock crow, thrice thou shalt deny me.

62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

63 And the men that held him scorned him, and smote him.

64 And they blindfolded him, and smote his face, and asked him, and said, Declare, thou Christ, to us, who is he that smote thee? [And they veiled him, and smote his face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy thou, who is it that smote thee?]

65 Also they blaspheming said against him many other things. [Also they blaspheming said many other things against him.]

66 And as the day was come, the elder men of the people, and the princes of priests, and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, and said [saying],

67 If thou art Christ, say to us. And he said to them, If I say to you, ye will not believe to me;

68 and if I ask, ye will not answer to me, neither ye will deliver me. [soothly and if I shall ask, ye shall not answer to me, neither ye shall let go.]

69 But after this time man's Son shall be sitting on the right half of the virtue of God.

70 Therefore all said, Then art thou the Son of God? And he said, Ye say that I am.

71 And they said, What yet desire we witnessing? for we ourselves have heard of his mouth.

Luke 22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ is betrayed. They eat the Passover lamb. The institution of the sacrament. They dispute who should be greatest; he reproves them. He prays three times upon the mount. They seize him and bring him to the high priest’s house. Peter denies him three times, and they bring Jesus before the council.

22 The feast of sweet bread drew near, which is called the Passover. And the high priests and scribes were seeking how to kill Jesus, but they feared the people. Then Satan entered into Judas, whose surname was Iscariot (who was of the number of the twelve), and he went his way and communed with the high priests and officers, how he might betray Jesus to them. And they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he accepted, and sought an opportunity to betray Jesus to them when the people were away.

Then came the day of sweet bread, when of necessity the Passover lamb must be offered. And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare for us the Passover lamb so that we may eat. They said to him, Where would you like us to prepare it? 10 And he said to them, When you have entered into the city, there a man bearing a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him into the same house that he enters in, 11 and say to the head of the house, The Master says to you, where is the guest chamber, where I may eat my Passover lamb with my disciples? 12 And he will show you a large upper room furnished. There make ready.

13 And they went and found things as he had said to them, and made ready the Passover lamb.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15 And he said to them, I have inwardly desired to eat this Passover lamb with you before I suffer. 16 For I say to you, henceforth I will not eat of it any more until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17 And he took the cup and gave thanks and said, Take this, and divide it among you. 18 For I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God has come.

19 And he took bread, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, This is my body, which is given for you. This do in the remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also, when they had supped, he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you. 21 Yet behold, the hand of him who betrays me is with me on the table. 22 And the Son of man goes as it is appointed; but woe be to that man by whom he is betrayed.

23 And they began to enquire among themselves which of them it could be that would do that. 

24 And there was a dispute among them, which of them should be taken for the greatest. 25 And he said to them, The kings of the Gentiles reign over them, and those who bear rule over them are called gracious lords. 26 But you shall not be like this. Rather, he who is greatest among you shall be as the youngest, and he who is chief shall be as the servant. 27 For who is greater: he who sits at food, or he that serves? Is it not he who sits at food? But I am among you as he that serves. 28 And you are those who have stayed with me in my trials. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father has appointed to me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit upon seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold: Satan has desired you all, to sift you like wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. And when you have turned back again, strengthen your brethren. 33 And Peter said to him, Lord, I am ready to go with you into prison, and to death. 34 And he said, I tell you, Peter, the cock will not crow this day till you have three times denied that you knew me.

35 And he said to them, When I sent you out without wallet or bag or shoes, did you lack anything? And they said, No. 36 And he said to them, But now, let him who has a wallet take it up, and likewise his bag. And he who has no sword, let him sell his coat and buy one. 37 For I say to you that that which is written must yet be performed in me: Even with the wicked was he numbered. For those things which are written of me have their fulfilment.

38 And they said, Lord, see, here are two swords.

And he said to them, It is enough.

39 And he came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of  Olives. And the disciples followed him. 40 And when he came to the place, he said to them, Pray, lest you fall into temptation. 41 And he went apart by himself, about a stone’s throw from them, and kneeled down and prayed, saying, 42 Father, if you will, withdraw this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours be fulfilled.

43 And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, comforting him. 44 And he was in an agony, and prayed somewhat longer. And his sweat was like drops of blood trickling down to the ground.

45 And he rose up from prayer and came to his disciples, and found them sleeping for sorrow, 46 and said to them, Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you fall into temptation.

47 While he was yet speaking, behold, there came a band of men, and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. And he pressed near to Jesus to kiss him. 48 And Jesus said to him, Judas, do you betray the Son of man with a kiss?

49 When those who were with Jesus saw what would follow, they said to him, Lord, shall we smite with swords? 50 And one of them struck a servant of the most high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered and said, Let it come to this. And he touched the servant’s ear and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said to the high priests and officers of the temple, and the elders who had approached him, Have you come out as if to a thief, with swords and clubs? 53 When I was daily with you in the temple, you did not stretch forth hands against me. But this is even your very hour, and the power of darkness.

54 Then they took him and led him, and brought him to the home of the high priest. And Peter followed afar off.

55 When they had kindled a fire in the centre courtyard of the palace and were sitting together, Peter also sat down among them. 56 And one of the servant girls saw him as he sat by the fire, and took a good look at him and said, This man was also with him. 57 Then he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58 And after a little while another saw him and said, You are also one of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59 And about the space of an hour afterwards, another affirmed, saying, Surely this fellow was with him, for he is from Galilee. 60 And Peter said, Man, I don’t know what you are talking about.

And immediately, while he yet spoke, the cock crew. 61 And the Lord turned back and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the words of the Lord, how he said to him, Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times. 62 And Peter went out and wept bitterly.

63 And the men that stood about Jesus mocked him and beat him, 64 and blindfolded him, and struck his face. And they asked him, saying, Prophesy! Who it is that hit you? 65 And they said many other things despitefully against him.

66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the high priests and scribes came together, and they led him into their council, saying, 67 Are you the very Christ? Tell us.

And he said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe. 68 And also if I ask you, you will not answer me or let me go. 69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

70 Then they all said, Are you then the Son of God?

He said to them, As you say, I am.

71 Then they said, Why do we need any further testimony? We ourselves have heard from his own mouth.

Luke 22 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

22 3 Judas selleth Christ. 7 The Apostles prepare the Passover. 24 They strive who shall be chiefest. 31 Satan desireth them. 35 Christ showeth that they wanted nothing. 42 He prayeth in the mount. 44 He sweateth blood. 50 Malchus’s ear cut off and healed. 57, 58, 60 Peter denieth Christ thrice. 63 Christ is mocked and strooken. 69 He confesseth himself to be the Son of God.

Now the [a]feast of unleavened bread drew near, which is called the Passover.

And the high Priests and Scribes sought how they might kill him: for they feared the people.

[b]Then entered Satan into Judas, who was called Iscariot, and was of the number of the twelve.

And he went his way, and communed with the high Priests and [c]captains, how he might betray him to them.

So they were glad, and agreed to give him money.

And he consented, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them, when the people were [d]away.

[e]Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the Passover [f]must be sacrificed.

And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the [g]Passover that we may eat it.

And they said to him, Where wilt thou, that we prepare it?

10 Then he said unto them, Behold, when ye be entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water: follow him into the house that he entereth in,

11 And say unto the good man of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the lodging where I shall eat my Passover with my disciples?

12 Then he shall show you a great high chamber trimmed: there make it ready.

13 So they went, and found as he had said unto them, and made ready the Passover.

14 [h]And when the [i]hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve Apostles with him.

15 Then he said unto them, I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you, before I [j]suffer.

16 For I say unto you, Henceforth I will not eat of it anymore, until it be fulfilleth in the kingdom of God.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among you:

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God be come.

19 [k]And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave to them, saying, This is my body, which is given for you: do this in the remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also after supper he took the cup, saying, This [l]cup is [m]that new Testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

21 [n]Yet behold, the [o]hand of him that betrayeth me, is with me at the table.

22 [p]And truly the Son of man goeth as it is appointed: but woe be to that man by whom he is betrayed.

23 Then they began to inquire among themselves which of them it should be, that should do that.

24 [q]And there arose also a strife among them, which of them should seem to be the greatest.

25 But he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles reign over them, and they that bear rule over them, are called [r]bountiful.

26 But ye shall not be so: but let the greatest among you be as the least: and the chiefest as he that serveth.

27 For who is greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at table? And I am among you as he that serveth.

28 [s]And ye are they which have continued with me in my tentations.

29 Therefore I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me,

30 That ye may eat, and drink at my table, in my kingdom, and sit on seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 [t]And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired you, [u]to winnow you as wheat.

32 [v]But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: therefore when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

33 [w]And he said unto him: Lord, I am ready to go with thee into prison, and to death.

34 But he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before thou hast thrice denied that thou knewest me.

35 ¶ And he said unto them, When I sent you without bag, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye anything? And they said, Nothing.

36 [x]Then he said to them, But now he that hath a bag, let him take it, and likewise a scrip: and he that hath none, let him sell his coat, and buy a sword.

37 For I say unto you, That yet the same which is written, must be performed in me, Even with the wicked was he numbered: for doubtless those things which are written of me, have an end.

38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

39 And he came out, and went (as he was wont) to the mount of Olives: and his disciples also followed him.

40 [y]And when he came to the place, he said to them, Pray, lest ye enter into tentation.

41 [z]And he was drawn aside from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, If thou wilt, take away this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done.

43 And there appeared an Angel unto him from heaven, comforting him.

44 But being in an [aa]agony, he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was like [ab]drops of blood, trickling down to the ground.

45 [ac]And he rose up from prayer, and came to his disciples, and found them sleeping for heaviness.

46 And he said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into tentation.

47 [ad]And while he yet spake, behold, a company, and he that was called Judas one of the twelve, went before them, and came near unto Jesus to kiss him.

48 And Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

49 [ae]Now when they which were about him, saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

50 And one of them smote a servant of the high Priest, and struck off his right ear.

51 Then Jesus answered, and said, Suffer them thus far: and he touched his ear, and healed him.

52 [af]Then Jesus said unto the high Priests, and captains of the Temple, and the Elders which were come to him, Be ye come out as unto a thief with swords and staves?

53 When I was daily with you in the Temple, ye stretched not forth the hands against me: but this is your very hour, and the [ag]power of darkness.

54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him to the high Priest’s house. [ah]And Peter followed afar off.

55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter also sat down among them.

56 And a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and having well looked on him, said, This man was also with him.

57 But he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

58 And after a little while, another man saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not.

59 And about the space of an hour after, a certain other affirmed, saying. Verily, even this man was with him: for he is also a Galilean.

60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately while he yet spake, the cock crew.

61 Then the Lord turned back, and looked upon Peter: and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

63 [ai]And the men that held Jesus, mocked him, and struck him.

64 And when they had blindfolded him, they smote him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy who it is that smote thee.

65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

66 [aj]And as soon as it was day, the Elders of the people, and the high Priests and the Scribes came together, and led him into their Council,

67 Saying, Art thou that Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe it.

68 And if also I ask you, you will not answer me, nor let me go.

69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit at the right hand of the power of God.

70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say, that I am.

71 Then said they, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard it of his own mouth.

Luke 22:36 All this talk is by way of an allegory, as if he said, O my friends and fellow soldiers, you have lived hitherto as it were in peace: but now there is a most sharp battle at hand to be fought, and therefore you must lay all other things aside, and think upon furnishing yourselves in armor.

  28. Luke 22:44 These do not only show that Christ was true man, but other things also which the goodly have to consider of, wherein redemption of all mankind is contained in the son of God his debasing himself to the state of a servant: such things as no man can sufficiently declare.

Luke 22 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

22 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. 11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16 for I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 18 for I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. 22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! 23 And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. 25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. 26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. 27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. 28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 32 but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. 33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. 34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, 46 and said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves? 53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off. 55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them. 56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him. 57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilæan. 60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. 61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him. 64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee? 65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, 67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68 and if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go. 69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. 70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. 71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
