Luke 22:44 The Passion Translation (TPT)

44 He prayed even more passionately, like one being sacrificed,[a] until he was in such intense agony of spirit that his sweat became drops of blood, dripping onto the ground.[b]


  1. Luke 22:44 The Aramaic text is literally “He prayed sacrificially.”
  2. Luke 22:44 Although vv. 43–44 are found in the Aramaic manuscript, many Greek texts omit them. Most of the early church fathers included them in their translations and commentaries. Though very rare, the phenomenon of hematidrosis, sweating blood, is well documented. Under great emotional stress, tiny capillaries in the sweat glands can break, thus mixing blood with sweat. This process could have marked weakness and possibly shock.
