Matthew 26:37-39 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

37 And taking with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to [a]show grief and distress of mind and was [b]deeply depressed.

38 Then He said to them, My soul is very sad and deeply grieved, so that [c]I am almost dying of sorrow. Stay here and keep awake and keep watch with Me.

39 And going a little farther, He threw Himself upon the ground on His face and prayed saying, My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will [not what I desire], but as You will and desire.
