New King James Version
Peter Denies Jesus, and Weeps Bitterly(A)
54 (B)Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest’s house. (C)But Peter followed at a distance. 55 (D)Now when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them. 56 And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, “This man was also with Him.”
57 But he denied [a]Him, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”
58 (E)And after a little while another saw him and said, “You also are of them.”
But Peter said, “Man, I am not!”
60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying!”
Immediately, while he was still speaking, [b]the rooster crowed. 61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then (H)Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, (I)“Before the rooster [c]crows, you will deny Me three times.” 62 So Peter went out and wept bitterly.
Jesus Mocked and Beaten(J)
63 (K)Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and (L)beat Him. 64 [d]And having blindfolded Him, they (M)struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, “Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?” 65 And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.
Jesus Faces the Sanhedrin(N)
But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will (R)by no means believe. 68 And if I [e]also ask you, you will by no means answer [f]Me or let Me go. 69 (S)Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God.”
70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”
So He said to them, (T)“You rightly say that I am.”
71 (U)And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”Read full chapter
