Matthew 26:69-75 New Life Version (NLV)
Peter Said He Did Not Know Jesus
69 Peter sat outside in the yard. A young servant-girl came to him. She said, “You were also with Jesus Who is from the country of Galilee!” 70 But Peter lied in front of all of them, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” 71 After he had gone out, another young servant-girl saw him. She said to those standing around, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” 72 Again he lied and swore, “I do not know this Man!” 73 After a little while some of the people standing around came up to Peter and said, “For sure, you are one of them. You talk like they do.” 74 Then he began to say bad words and swear. He said, “I do not know the Man!” At once a rooster crowed.
75 Peter remembered the words Jesus had said to him, “Before a rooster crows, you will say three times you do not know Me.” Peter went outside and cried with loud cries.
