John 13:1-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

13 But before the feast day of pask Jesus witting, that his hour is come, that he pass from this world to the Father [Jesus witting, for his hour cometh, that he pass over this world to the Father], when he had loved his that were in the world, into the end he loved them.

And when the supper was made, when the devil had put then into the heart, that Judas of Simon Iscariot should betray him, [And the supper made, when the devil had sent now into the heart of Judas, of Simon Iscariot, that he should betray him,]

he witting that the Father gave all things to him into his hands, and that he went out from God, and goeth to God,

he riseth from the supper, and doeth off his clothes; and when he had taken a linen cloth, he girded him(self).

And afterward he put water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe with the linen cloth, with which he was girded.

And so he came to Simon Peter, and Peter saith to him, Lord, washest thou my feet?

Jesus answered, and said to him, What I do, thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know afterward.

Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered to him, If I shall not wash thee, thou shalt not have part with me.

Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, not only my feet, but both the hands and the head [but and mine hands and the head].

10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed, hath no need but that he wash the feet, but he is all clean [but he is clean all]; and ye be clean, but not all.

11 For he knew, who it was that should betray him [Forsooth he knew, who should betray him]; therefore he said, Ye be not all clean.

John 13:1-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ washes the disciples’ feet, tells them of Judas the traitor, and commands them to love one another earnestly.

13 Before the feast of Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, to the end he loved them. And when supper was ended, after the devil had put in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, arose from supper and laid aside his upper garments, and took a towel and girded himself. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.

Then he came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to him, Lord, shall you wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to him, What I am doing, you do not understand now, but you will know hereafter. Peter said to him, You shall not wash my feet while the world stands! Jesus answered him, If I do not wash you, you will have no part with me. Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head! 10 Jesus said to him, He who is washed needs not but to wash his feet, and is clean every whit. And you my disciples are clean – but not all. 11 For he knew his betrayer. Therefore he said, you are not all clean.

John 13:1-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

13 4 Christ rising from supper, 14 to command humility to his Apostles, washeth their feet. 21 He noteth the traitor Judas, 26 with an evident token. 34 He commendeth charity. 37, 38 He foretelleth Peter of his denial.

Now [a]before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come, that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, forasmuch as he loved his [b]own which were in the world, unto the end he loved them.

And when supper was done (and that the devil had now put in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him.)

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his [c]hands, and that he was come forth from God, and went to God,

He [d]riseth from Supper, and layeth aside his upper garments, and took a towel, and girded himself.

After that, he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel, wherewith he was girded.

Then came he to Simon Peter, who said to him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do, thou knowest not now: but thou shalt know it hereafter.

Peter said unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou shalt have [e]no part with me.

Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.

10 Jesus said to him, He that is washed, needeth not, save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

11 For he knew who should betray him: therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

  1. John 13:1 Christ no less certain of the victory, than of the combat which was at hand, using the sign of washing the feet, doth partly thereby give an example of singular modesty, and his great love toward his Apostles in this notable act, being like very shortly to depart from them: and partly witnesseth unto them, that it is he only which washeth away the filth of his people, and that by little and little, in their time and season.
  2. John 13:1 Them of his household, that is, his Saints.
  3. John 13:3 Into his power.
  4. John 13:4 In that he is said to rise, it argueth that there was a space between the ceremonies of the Passover, and this washing of feet, at what time it seemeth that the Supper was instituted.
  5. John 13:8 Unless thou suffer me to wash thee, thou shalt have no part in the kingdom of heaven.

John 13:1-11 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; he riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
