37 Taking along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.(A) 38 Then He said to them, “My soul is swallowed up in sorrow[a] —to the point of death.[b] Remain here and stay awake with Me.”(B) 39 Going a little farther,[c] He fell facedown and prayed, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.”(C)
