Psalm 19:14 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts,
and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing,
acceptable before your eyes,
my only Redeemer, my Protector-God.[a]

Matthew 26:50-56 The Passion Translation (TPT)

50 “My beloved friend,”[a] Jesus said, “is this why you’ve come?”[b]

Then the armed men seized Jesus to arrest him. 51 But one of the disciples[c] pulled out a dagger and swung it at the servant of the high priest, slashing off his ear. 52 Jesus said to him, “Put your dagger away. For all those who embrace violence will die by violence.[d] 53 Don’t you realize that I could ask my heavenly Father for angels to come at any time to deliver me? And instantly he would answer me by sending twelve armies of the angelic host[e] to come and protect us. 54 But that would thwart the prophetic plan of God. For it has been written that it would happen this way.”

55 Then Jesus turned to the mob and said, “Why would you arrest me with swords and clubs as though I were an outlaw? Day after day I sat in the temple courts with you, teaching the people, yet you didn’t arrest me. 56 But all of this fulfills the prophecies of the Scriptures.”

At that point all of his disciples ran away and abandoned him.

Footnotes:

  1. Matthew 26:50 As translated from the Hebrew Matthew.
  2. Matthew 26:50 As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is “Do what you’ve come to do.”
  3. Matthew 26:51 From John 18:10 we learn that the disciple was Peter. Matthew, although knowing it was his friend Peter, kept him from any embarrassment by not naming him in his Gospel narrative.
  4. Matthew 26:52 The Aramaic reads, “Those who have taken up swords against me will all die by the sword.” The Aramaic is a prophecy that those armed men who came against Jesus in the garden that night would die by the sword.
  5. Matthew 26:53 Or “twelve legions.” A legion was a detachment of six thousand Roman soldiers. Jesus could have called down seventy-two thousand angels to come to his aid. The number twelve was a reminder to the twelve disciples that God had more than enough protection for them all.

Luke 22:52-53 The Passion Translation (TPT)

52 Jesus turned to those who had come to seize him—the ruling priests, the officers of the temple police, and the religious leaders—and said, “Am I a criminal that you come to capture me with clubs and swords? Wasn’t I with you day after day, teaching in the temple courts? 53 You could have seized me at any time. But in the darkness of night you have now found your time, for it belongs to you and to the prince of darkness.”[a]

Footnotes:

  1. Luke 22:53 The “prince of darkness” is Satan. This phrase is found only in the Aramaic manuscripts. The Greek text states, “the powers of darkness.”
