Matthew 26:69-75New American Standard Bible (NASB)
69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.”70 But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.”71 When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and *said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.”72 And again he denied it with an oath, “I do not know the man.”73 A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Surely you too are one of them; for even the way you talk [a]gives you away.”74 Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed.75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.
66 As Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant-girls of the high priest *came,67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and *said, “You also were with Jesus the Nazarene.”68 But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you are talking about.” And he went out onto the [a]porch.[b]69 The servant-girl saw him, and began once more to say to the bystanders, “This is one of them!”70 But again he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders were again saying to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean too.”71 But he began to [c]curse and swear, “I do not know this man you are talking about!”72 Immediately a rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had made the remark to him, “Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.”[d]And he began to weep.
55 After they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them.56 And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, “This man was with Him too.”57 But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”58 A little later, another saw him and said, “You are one of them too!” But Peter said, “Man, I am not!”59 After about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, “Certainly this man also was with Him, for he is a Galilean too.”60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.61 The Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, “Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times.”
16 but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought Peter in.17 Then the slave-girl who kept the door *said to Peter, “You are not also one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He *said, “I am not.”
