Matthew 26:42-54 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

42 He went away once more and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup cannot pass away from me but that I drink of it, thy will be fulfilled. 43 And he came and found his disciples asleep again. For their eyes were heavy. 44 And he left them and went again and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then he came to his disciples and said to them, Sleep on now, and take your rest! Take heed: the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Arise, let us be going. Behold, he who betrays me is at hand.

47 While he was yet speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a large band of men bearing swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 And he who betrayed him had arranged a sign, saying, Whomever I kiss, he is the one; lay hands on him. 49 And at once he went up to Jesus and said, Hail, Master! and kissed him. 50 And Jesus said to him, Friend, why have you come? Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

51 And at that, one of the men who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. 52 Then said Jesus to him, Put your sword back in its sheath. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think I cannot now pray to my Father, and he would send me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then would the scriptures be fulfilled? For this is how it must be.
