22 1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the
2And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might
put him to death; for they feared the people.
3And Satan entered into
Judas who was called Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
went away, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might
deliver him unto them.
5And they were glad, and covenanted to give him
6And he consented, and sought opportunity to deliver him unto them
in the absence of the multitude.
7And the day of unleavened bread came,
on which the passover must be sacrificed.
8And he sent Peter and John,
saying, Go and make ready for us the passover, that we may eat.
said unto him, Where wilt thou that we make ready?
10And he said unto
them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall meet you a man
bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house whereinto he goeth.
11And ye shall say unto the master of the house, The Teacher saith unto
thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my
12And he will show you a large upper room furnished: there
13And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they
made ready the passover.
14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and
the apostles with him.
15And he said unto them, With desire I have
desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16for I say unto
you, I shall not eat it, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
17And he received a cup, and when he had given thanks, he said, Take
this, and divide it among yourselves:
18for I say unto you, I shall not
drink from henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God
19And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake
it, and gave to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do
in remembrance of me.
20And the cup in like manner after supper, saying,
This cup is the new covenant in my blood, even that which is poured
out for you.
21But behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me
on the table.
22For the Son of man indeed goeth, as it hath been
determined: but woe unto that man through whom he is betrayed!
began to question among themselves, which of them it was that should do this
24And there arose also a contention among them, which of them was
accounted to be greatest.
25And he said unto them, The kings of the
Gentiles have lordship over them; and they that have authority over them are
26But ye shall not be so: but he that
is the greater among you, let him become as the younger; and he that is
chief, as he that doth serve.
27For which is greater, he that sitteth at
meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am in the
midst of you as he that serveth.
28But ye are they that have continued
with me in my temptations;
29and I appoint unto you a kingdom, even as my
Father appointed unto me,
30that ye may eat and drink at my table in my
kingdom; and ye shall sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you
32but I made supplication for thee, that thy faith fail not;
and do thou, when once thou hast turned again, establish thy brethren.
33And he said unto him, Lord, with thee I am ready to go both to prison
and to death.
34And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow
this day, until thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
said unto them, When I sent you forth without purse, and wallet, and shoes,
lacked ye anything? And they said, Nothing.
36And he said unto them, But
now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a wallet; and he
that hath none, let him sell his cloak, and buy a sword.
37For I say unto
you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in me, And he was reckoned
with transgressors: for that which concerneth me hath fulfilment.
they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is
39And he came out, and went, as his custom was, unto the mount of
Olives; and the disciples also followed him.
40And when he was at the
place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
he was parted from them about a stone's cast; and he kneeled down and prayed,
42saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43And there appeared unto
him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.
44And being in an agony he
prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became as it were great drops of blood
falling down upon the ground.
45And when he rose up from his prayer, he
came unto the disciples, and found them sleeping for sorrow,
unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.
47While he yet spake, behold, a multitude, and he that was called Judas,
one of the twelve, went before them; and he drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a
49And when they that were about him saw what would follow, they
said, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50And a certain one of them
smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his right ear.
Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye them thus far. And he touched his
ear, and healed him.
52And Jesus said unto the chief priests, and
captains of the temple, and elders, that were come against him, Are ye come
out, as against a robber, with swords and staves?
53When I was daily with
you in the temple, ye stretched not forth your hands against me: but this is
your hour, and the power of darkness.
54And they seized him, and led him
away, and brought him into the high priest's house. But Peter
followed afar off.
55And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the
court, and had sat down together, Peter sat in the midst of them.
certain maid seeing him as he sat in the light of the fire, and
looking stedfastly upon him, said, This man also was with him.
denied, saying, Woman, I know him not.
58And after a little while another
saw him, and said, Thou also art one of them. But Peter said, Man, I
59And after the space of about one hour another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this man also was with him; for he is a
60But Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And
immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
61And the Lord turned,
and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how that he
said unto him, Before the cock crow this day thou shalt deny me thrice.
62And he went out, and wept bitterly.
63And the men that held
Jesus mocked him, and beat him.
64And they blindfolded him, and
asked him, saying, Prophesy: who is he that struck thee?
65And many other
things spake they against him, reviling him.
66And as soon as it was day,
the assembly of the elders of the people was gathered together, both chief
priests and scribes; and they led him away into their council, saying,
67If thou art the Christ, tell us. But he said unto them, If I tell you,
ye will not believe:
68and if I ask you, ye will not answer.
69But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of
the power of God.
70And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? And
he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
71And they said, What further need
have we of witness? for we ourselves have heard from his own mouth.
