 33093309 John xviii. 1.This said Jesus, and went forth with his disciples to a place which was called Gethsemane,33103310 Matt. xxvi. 36. on33113311 Vat. ms. has and on. the side that is in the plain33123312 The word rendered plain (cf. Dozy, Supplement, sub voc.), which occurs also in the text of Ibn-at-Tayyib (loc. cit., f. 362b), properly means lake. The word in the Jerusalem Lectionary means valley as well as stream. For the whole clause cf. the text of John xviii. in Die vier Evangelien, arabisch, aus der Wiener Handschrift, edited by P. de Lagarde, 1864. of Kidron, the mountain,33133313 cf. Sinaitic Syriac and Luke xxii. 39. the place  in which was a garden; and he entered thither, he and his disciples. 33143314 John xviii. 2.And Judas the  betrayer knew that place: for Jesus oft-times met with his disciples there. 33153315 Luke xxii. 40a; Matt. xxvi. 36b.And when Jesus came to the place, he said to his disciples, Sit ye here, so that I may go and pray; [4, 5] [Arabic, p. 181] and pray ye, that ye enter not into temptations. 33163316 Luke xxii. 40b; Matt. xxvi. 37.And he took with him Cephas and the sons of Zebedee together, James and John; and he began to  look sorrowful, and to be anxious. 33173317 Matt. xxvi. 38.And he said unto them, My soul is distressed unto  death: abide ye here, and watch with me. 33183318 Luke xxii. 41a.And he withdrew from them a little,  the space of a stone’s throw; 33193319 Mark xiv. 35b.and he kneeled,33203320 Lit. fell on his knees. and fell on his face, and prayed, so  that, if it were possible, this hour might pass33213321 Lit. let this hour pass. The Borg. ms. omits him. him. 33223322 Mark xiv. 36a.And he said, Father, thou art able for all things; if thou wilt, let this cup pass me: 33233323 Luke xxii. 42b.but let not my will be done,  but let thy will be done. 33243324 Matt. xxvi. 40a; Mark xiv. 37b.And he came to his disciples, and found them sleeping;  and he said unto Cephas, Simon, didst thou sleep? 33253325 Matt. xxvi. 40b.Could ye thus not for one hour  watch with me? 33263326 Matt. xxvi. 41a; Matt. xiv. 38b.Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptations: the spirit is  willing and ready, but the body is weak.33273327 Lit. diseased. The Arabic word is rare in the sense required by the context (cf. Pesh.). 33283328 Matt. xxvi. 42.And he went again a second time, and prayed, and said, My Father, if it is not possible with regard to33293329 This reading would perhaps more easily arise out of the Sinaitic than out of the Peshitta. this cup that it pass,  except I drink it, thy will be done. 33303330 Mark xiv. 40.And he returned again, and found his disciples sleeping, for their eyes were heavy from their grief and anxiety; and they knew not  what to say to him. 33313331 Matt. xxvi. 44.And he left them, and went away again, and prayed a third  time, and said the very same word. 33323332 Luke xxii. 43.And there appeared unto him an angel from  heaven, encouraging him. 33333333 Luke xxii. 44.And being afraid33343334 cf. Peshitta. Or, And although he was afraid. he prayed continuously:33353335 The Peshitta (hardly Cur.) is capable of this interpretation. and his sweat33363336 cf. Syr., especially Peshitta.  [Arabic, p. 182] became like a stream of blood, and fell on the ground. 33373337 Luke xxii. 45a.Then he rose from  his prayer, and came to his disciples, and found them sleeping. 33383338 Luke xxii. 46; Matt. xxvi. 45b.And he  said unto them, Sleep now, and rest: 33393339 Mark xiv. 41b.the end hath arrived,33403340 cf. Syr., especially Peshitta. and the hour hath come;  and behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 33413341 Mark xiv. 42a; Matt. xxvi. 46b.Arise, let us go:33423342 cf. § 4, 20, note. for he hath come that betrayeth me.
 33433343 Matt. xxvi. 47.And while he was still speaking, came Judas the betrayer, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude carrying lanterns and torches33443344 John xviii. 3. and swords and staves, from the chief priests and scribes and elders of the people, and with him the footsoldiers  of the Romans.33453345 cf. John xviii. 3 (Jerusalem Lectionary). In Syriac Romans means soldiers. The Arabic footsoldiers might be man (singular). 33463346 Matt. xxvi. 48; Mark xiv. 44b.And Judas the betrayer gave them a sign, and said, He whom I shall kiss, he is he: take him with care,33473347 cf. Syriac versions. Obviously we must supply a diacritical point over the last radical, or read the middle one as dhal. and lead him away.33483348 Lit. him to —. Borg. ms. probably means bear him away.
118 33493349 John xviii. 4a.And Jesus, because he knew everything that should come upon him, went forth  unto them. 33503350 Matt. xxvi. 49; Matt. xxvi. 50a.And immediately Judas the betrayer came to Jesus, and said, Peace,  my Master; and kissed him. 33513351 Luke xxii. 48b.And Jesus said unto him, Judas, with a kiss betrayest  thou the Son of man? 33523352 Matt. xxvi. 50b; Luke xxii. 52a, c.Was it for that thou camest, my friend? And Jesus said  to those that came unto him, Whom seek ye? 33533353 John xviii. 4b; John xviii. 5.They said unto him, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus said unto them, I am he. And Judas the betrayer also was standing  with them. 33543354 John xviii. 6.And when Jesus said unto them, I am he, they retreated backward, and  fell to the ground. 33553355 John xviii. 7.And Jesus asked them again, Whom seek ye? They answered,  Jesus the Nazarene. 33563356 John xviii. 8.Jesus said unto them, I told you that I am he: and if ye seek  me, let these go away: that the word might be fulfilled which he spake, 33573357 John xviii. 9.Of those  [Arabic, p. 183] whom thou hast given me I lost not even one. 33583358 Matt. xxvi. 50c.Then came those that were with Judas, and seized Jesus, and took him.
 33593359 Luke xxii. 49.And when his disciples saw what happened, they said, Our Lord, shall we smite  them with swords? 33603360 John xviii. 10.And Simon Cephas had a sword, and he drew it, and struck the servant of the chief priest, and cut off his right ear. And the name of that servant  was Malchus. 33613361 John xviii. 11a.Jesus said unto Cephas, The cup which my Father hath given  me, shall I not drink it? 33623362 John xviii. 11c; Matt. xxvi. 52b.Put the sword into its sheath: for all that take with33633363 Withis doubtless an accidental repetition of by (the same Arabic particle) in the next clause. the  sword shall die by the sword. 33643364 Matt. xxvi. 53.Thinkest33653365 The introductory interrogative particle may represent an original Or. thou that I am not able to ask of my  Father, and he shall now raise up for me more than33663366 Vat. ms. omits than, and has more only in the margin by another hand. twelve tribes of angels? 33673367 Matt. xxvi. 54.Then  how should the scriptures which were spoken be fulfilled, that thus it must be? 33683368 Luke xxii. 51b.Your  leave in this.33693369 The phrase is awkward. The rendering is different in the text (f. 292a, cf. Lagarde, Die vier Evv.), and yet again in the comment (f. 293a) of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary. 33703370 Matt. xxvi. 55.And he touched the ear of him that was struck, and healed it. And in that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, As they come out against a thief are ye come out against me with swords and staves to take me? Daily was I with you in  the temple sitting teaching, and ye took me not: 33713371 Luke xxii. 53b.but this is your hour, and the power  of darkness. 33723372 Matt. xxvi. 56.And that was, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.
 33733373 John xviii. 12a.Then the disciples all left him, and fled. And the footsoldiers and the officers  and the soldiers33743374 cf. § 11, 11. of the Jews seized Jesus, and came. 33753375 Mark xiv. 51.And a certain33763376 Lit. one. young man  followed him, and he was wrapped in a towel, naked: 33773377 Mark xiv. 52.and they seized him; so he  [Arabic, p. 184] left the towel, and fled naked. 33783378 John xviii. 12b; John xviii. 13.Then they took Jesus, and bound him, and brought him to Annas first; because he was the father in law of Caiaphas,  who was chief priest that year. 33793379 John xviii. 14.And Caiaphas was he that counselled the Jews, that it was necessary that one man should die instead of the people.
 33803380 John xviii. 15.And Simon Cephas and one of the other disciples followed Jesus. And the chief  priest knew that disciple, and he entered with Jesus into the court; 33813381 John xviii. 16.but Simon was standing without at the door. And that other disciple, whom the chief priest knew,  went out and spake unto her that kept the door, and she brought Simon in. 33823382 John xviii. 17a.And when the maid that kept the door saw Simon, she looked stedfastly at him, and said unto him, Art not thou also one of the disciples of this man, I mean Jesus the  Nazarene? 33833383 Luke xxii. 57; Mark xiv. 68b.But he denied, and said, Woman, I know him not, neither know I even  what thou sayest. 33843384 John xviii. 18a.And the servants and the soldiers rose, and made a fire in the  middle of the court, that they might warm themselves; for it was cold. 33853385 Luke xxii. 55a.And when  the fire burned up, they sat down around it. 33863386 John xviii. 18c; Matt. xxvi. 58b.And Simon also came, and sat down with them to warm himself, that he might see the end of what should happen.
