1 After two days was the feast of the passoverand ofunleavened breadand the chief priests and the scribes soughthow they might take him by craftand put him to death.
2 But they saidNot on the feast daylest there be an uproarof the people.
3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leperas hesat at meatthere came a woman having an alabaster box ofointment of spikenard very preciousand she brake the box and poured it on his head.
4 And there were some that had indignation within themselves and saidWhy was this waste of the ointment made
5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence and have been given to the poor. And they murmured againsther.
6 And Jesus saidLet her alonewhy trouble ye hershe hathwrought a good work on me.
7 For ye have the poor with you alwaysand whensoever ye willye may do them goodbut me ye have not always.
8 She hath done what she couldshe is come aforehand to anointmy body to the burying.
9 Verily I say unto youWheresoever this gospel shall bepreached throughout the whole worldthis also that she hathdone shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
10 And Judas Iscariotone of the twelvewent unto the chiefprieststo betray him unto them.
11 And when they heard itthey were gladand promised to givehim money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
12 And the first day of unleavened breadwhen they killed thepassoverhis disciples said unto himWhere wilt thou that wego and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover
13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciplesand saith untothemGo ye into the cityand there shall meet you a manbearing a pitcher of waterfollow him.
14 And wheresoever he shall go insay ye to the goodman of thehouseThe Master saithWhere is the guestchamberwhere Ishall eat the passover with my disciples
15 And he will shew you a large upper room furnished andpreparedthere make ready for us.
16 And his disciples went forthand came into the cityandfound as he had said unto themand they made ready thepassover.
17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
18 And as they sat and did eatJesus saidVerily I say untoyouOne of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
19 And they began to be sorrowfuland to say unto him one byoneIs it Iand another saidIs it I
20 And he answered and said unto themIt is one of the twelvethat dippeth with me in the dish.
21 The Son of man indeed goethas it is written of himbut woeto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayedgood were itfor that man if he had never been born.
22 And as they did eatJesus took breadand blessedand brakeitand gave to themand saidTakeeatthis is my body.
23 And he took the cupand when he had given thankshe gave itto themand they all drank of it.
24 And he said unto themThis is my blood of the new testamentwhich is shed for many.
25 Verily I say unto youI will drink no more of the fruit ofthe vineuntil that day that I drink it new in the kingdom ofGod.
26 And when they had sung an hymnthey went out into the mountof Olives.
27 And Jesus saith unto themAll ye shall be offended because ofme this nightfor it is writtenI will smite the shepherd and the sheep shall be scattered.
28 But after that I am risenI will go before you into Galilee.
29 But Peter said unto himAlthough all shall be offendedyetwill not I.
30 And Jesus saith unto himVerily I say unto theeThat thisdayeven in this nightbefore the cock crow twicethoushalt deny me thrice.
31 But he spake the more vehementlyIf I should die with theeIwill not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemaneand hesaith to his disciplesSit ye herewhile I shall pray.
33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and Johnand began tobe sore amazedand to be very heavy
34 And saith unto themMy soul is exceeding sorrowful untodeathtarry ye hereand watch.
35 And he went forward a littleand fell on the groundandprayed thatif it were possiblethe hour might pass fromhim.
36 And he saidAbbaFatherall things are possible unto theetake away this cup from menevertheless not what I willbutwhat thou wilt.
37 And he comethand findeth them sleepingand saith untoPeterSimonsleepest thoucouldest not thou watch one hour
38 Watch ye and praylest ye enter into temptation. The spirittruly is readybut the flesh is weak.
39 And again he went awayand prayedand spake the same words.
40 And when he returnedhe found them asleep again for theireyes were heavy neither wist they what to answer him.
41 And he cometh the third timeand saith unto themSleep onnowand take your restit is enoughthe hour is come beholdthe Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
42 Rise uplet us golohe that betrayeth me is at hand.
43 And immediatelywhile he yet spakecometh Judasone of thetwelveand with him a great multitude with swords and stavesfrom the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
44 And he that betrayed him had given them a tokensayingWhomsoever I shall kissthat same is hetake himand leadhim away safely.
45 And as soon as he was comehe goeth straightway to himandsaithMastermasterand kissed him.
46 And they laid their hands on himand took him.
47 And one of them that stood by drew a swordand smote aservant of the high priestand cut off his ear.
48 And Jesus answered and said unto themAre ye come outasagainst a thiefwith swords and with staves to take me
49 I was daily with you in the temple teachingand ye took menotbut the scriptures must be fulfilled.
50 And they all forsook himand fled.
51 And there followed him a certain young manhaving a linencloth cast about his naked bodyand the young men laid holdon him
52 And he left the linen clothand fled from them naked.
53 And they led Jesus away to the high priestand with him wereassembled all the chief priests and the elders and thescribes.
54 And Peter followed him afar offeven into the palace of thehigh priestand he sat with the servantsand warmed himselfat the fire.
55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witnessagainst Jesus to put him to deathand found none.
56 For many bare false witness against himbut their witnessagreed not together.
57 And there arose certainand bare false witness against himsaying
58 We heard him sayI will destroy this temple that is made withhandsand within three days I will build another made withouthands.
59 But neither so did their witness agree together.
60 And the high priest stood up in the midstand asked JesussayingAnswerest thou nothingwhat is it which these witnessagainst thee
61 But he held his peaceand answered nothing. Again the highpriest asked himand said unto himArt thou the ChristtheSon of the Blessed
62 And Jesus saidI amand ye shall see the Son of man sittingon the right hand of powerand coming in the clouds ofheaven.
63 Then the high priest rent his clothesand saithWhat need weany further witnesses
64 Ye have heard the blasphemywhat think yeAnd they allcondemned him to be guilty of death.
65 And some began to spit on himand to cover his faceand tobuffet himand to say unto himProphesyand the servantsdid strike him with the palms of their hands.
66 And as Peter was beneath in the palacethere cometh one ofthe maids of the high priest
67 And when she saw Peter warming himselfshe looked upon himand saidAnd thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
68 But he deniedsayingI know notneither understand I whatthou sayest. And he went out into the porchand the cockcrew.
69 And a maid saw him againand began to say to them that stoodbyThis is one of them.
70 And he denied it again. And a little afterthey that stood bysaid again to PeterSurely thou art one of themfor thou arta Galilaeanand thy speech agreeth thereto.
71 But he began to curse and to swearsayingI know not thisman of whom ye speak.
72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mindthe word that Jesus said unto himBefore the cock crow twicethou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereonhewept.
