47 And (B)while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.

48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.” 49 Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” (C)and kissed Him.

50 But Jesus said to him, (D)“Friend, why have you come?”

Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. 51 And suddenly, (E)one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

52 But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, (F)for all who take the sword will [a]perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with (G)more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, (H)that it must happen thus?”

Then (J)all the disciples forsook Him and fled.
