1: Now the feast of unleavened bread, which [is] called the passover, drew nigh, 2: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people. 3: And Satan entered into Judas, who was surnamed Iscariote, being of the number of the twelve. 4: And he went away and spoke with the chief priests and captains as to how he should deliver him up to them. 5: And they were rejoiced, and agreed to give him money. 6: And he came to an agreement to do it, and sought an opportunity to deliver him up to them away from the crowd. 7: And the day of unleavened bread came, in which the passover was to be killed. 8: And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare the passover for us, that we may eat [it]. 9: But they said to him, Where wilt thou that we prepare [it]? 10: And he said to them, Behold, as ye enter into the city a man will meet you, carrying an earthen pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he goes in; 11: and ye shall say to the master of the house, The Teacher says to thee, Where is the guest-chamber where I may eat the passover with my disciples? 12: And he will shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13: And having gone they found it as he had said to them; and they prepared the passover. 14: And when the hour was come, he placed himself at table, and the [twelve] apostles with him. 15: And he said to them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer. 16: For I say unto you, that I will not eat any more at all of it until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17: And having received a cup, when he had given thanks he said, Take this and divide it among yourselves. 18: For I say unto you, that I will not drink at all of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God come. 19: And having taken a loaf, when he had given thanks, he broke [it], and gave [it] to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20: In like manner also the cup, after having supped, saying, This cup [is] the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. 21: Moreover, behold, the hand of him that delivers me up [is] with me on the table; 22: and the Son of man indeed goes as it is determined, but woe unto that man by whom he is delivered up. 23: And they began to question together among themselves who then it could be of them who was about to do this. 24: And there was also a strife among them which of them should be held to be [the] greatest. 25: And he said to them, The kings of the nations rule over them, and they that exercise authority over them are called benefactors. 26: But ye [shall] not [be] thus; but let the greater among you be as the younger, and the leader as he that serves. 27: For which [is] greater, he that is at table or he that serves? [Is] not he that is at table? But I am in the midst of you as the one that serves. 28: But ye are they who have persevered with me in my temptations. 29: And I appoint unto you, as my Father has appointed unto me, a kingdom, 30: that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 31: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded to have you, to sift [you] as wheat; 32: but I have besought for thee that thy faith fail not; and thou, when once thou hast been restored, confirm thy brethren. 33: And he said to him, Lord, with thee I am ready to go both to prison and to death. 34: And he said, I tell thee, Peter, [the] cock shall not crow to-day before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me. 35: And he said to them, When I sent you without purse and scrip and sandals, did ye lack anything? And they said, Nothing. 36: He said therefore to them, But now he that has a purse let him take [it], in like manner also a scrip, and he that has none let him sell his garment and buy a sword; 37: for I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned with [the] lawless: for also the things concerning me have an end. 38: And they said, Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said to them, It is enough. 39: And going forth he went according to his custom to the mount of Olives, and the disciples also followed him. 40: And when he was at the place he said to them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and having knelt down he prayed, 42: saying, Father, if thou wilt remove this cup from me: -- but then, not my will, but thine be done. 43: And an angel appeared to him from heaven strengthening him. 44: And being in conflict he prayed more intently. And his sweat became as great drops of blood, falling down upon the earth. 45: And rising up from his prayer, coming to the disciples, he found them sleeping from grief. 46: And he said to them, Why sleep ye? rise up and pray that ye enter not into temptation. 47: As he was yet speaking, behold, a crowd, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went on before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss him. 48: And Jesus said to him, Judas, deliverest thou up the Son of man with a kiss? 49: And they who were around him, seeing what was going to follow, said [to him], Lord, shall we smite with [the] sword? 50: And a certain one from among them smote the bondman of the high priest and took off his right ear. 51: And Jesus answering said, Suffer thus far; and having touched his ear, he healed him. 52: And Jesus said to the chief priests and captains of the temple and elders, who were come against him, Have ye come out as against a robber with swords and sticks? 53: When I was day by day with you in the temple ye did not stretch out your hands against me; but this is your hour and the power of darkness. 54: And having laid hold on him, they led him [away], and they led [him] into the house of the high priest. And Peter followed afar off. 55: And they having lit a fire in the midst of the court and sat down together, Peter sat among them. 56: And a certain maid, having seen him sitting by the light, and having fixed her eyes upon him, said, And this [man] was with him. 57: But he denied [him], saying, Woman, I do not know him. 58: And after a short time another seeing him said, And thou art of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not. 59: And after the lapse of about one hour another stoutly maintained it, saying, In truth this [man] also was with him, for also he is a Galilaean. 60: And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he was yet speaking, [the] cock crew. 61: And the Lord, turning round, looked at Peter; and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, Before [the] cock crow thou shalt deny me thrice. 62: And Peter, going forth without, wept bitterly. 63: And the men who held him mocked him, beating [him]; 64: and covering him up, asked him saying, Prophesy, who is it that struck thee? 65: And they said many other injurious things to him. 66: And when it was day, the elderhood of the people, both [the] chief priests and scribes, were gathered together, and led him into their council, saying, 67: If thou art the Christ, tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not at all believe; 68: and if I should ask [you], ye would not answer me at all, nor let me go; 69: but henceforth shall the Son of man be sitting on the right hand of the power of God. 70: And they all said, Thou then art the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am. 71: And they said, What need have we any more of witness, for we have heard ourselves out of his mouth?
