14:1 After two days was [the feast of] the passover, and of
unleavened bread: and the chief priests, and the scribes,
sought how they might take him by craft, and put [him] to
14:2 But they said, Not on the feast-[day], lest there should be
an uproar of the people.
14:3 And being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as
he sat at table, there came a woman having an alabaster box of
ointment of spikenard, very precious; and she broke the box,
and poured [it] on his head.
14:4 And there were some that had indignation within themselves,
and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
14:5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred
pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured
14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath
wrought a good work on me.
14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whenever ye will
ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
14:8 She hath done what she could: she is come beforehand to
anoint my body to the burying.
14:9 Verily I say to you, Wherever this gospel shall be preached
throughout the whole world, [this] also that she hath done
shall be spoken of, for a memorial of her.
14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief
priests, to betray him to them.
14:11 And when they heard [it], they were glad, and promised to
give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray
14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed
the passover, his disciples said to him, Where wilt thou that
we go and prepare, that thou mayest eat the passover?
14:13 And he sendeth two of his disciples, and saith to them, Go
ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a
pitcher of water: follow him.
14:14 And wherever he shall go in, say ye to the master of the
house, The Master saith, Where is the guest-chamber, where I
may eat the passover with my disciples?
14:15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished [and]
prepared: there make ready for us.
14:16 And his disciples went, and came into the city, and found
as he had said to them: and they made ready the passover.
14:17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
14:18 And as they sat, and were eating, Jesus said, Verily I say
to you, One of you who eateth with me, will betray me.
14:19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by
one, [Is] it I? and another [said], [Is] it I?
14:20 And he answered and said to them, [It is] one of the
twelve that dippeth with me in the dish.
14:21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written concerning
him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed!
good were it for that man if he had never been born.
14:22 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed,
and broke [it], and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is
14:23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave
[it] to them: and they all drank of it.
14:24 And he said to them, This is my blood of the new
testament, which is shed for many.
14:25 Verily I say to you, I will drink no more of the fruit of
the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of
14:26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the mount
14:27 And Jesus saith to them, All ye will be offended because
of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd,
and the sheep shall be scattered.
14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into
14:29 But Peter said to him, Although all shall be offended, yet
[will] not I.
14:30 And Jesus saith to him, Verily I say to thee, that this
day, [even] in this night, before the cock shall crow twice,
thou wilt deny me thrice.
14:31 But he spoke the more vehemently, If I should die with
thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they
14:32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and
he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
14:33 And he taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and
began to be greatly amazed, and to be very heavy;
14:34 And saith to them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful to
death: tarry ye here, and watch.
14:35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and
prayed that, If it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things [are] possible to
thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless, not what I
will, but what thou wilt.
14:37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith to
Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldst not thou watch one hour?
14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The
spirit truly [is] ready, but the flesh [is] weak.
14:39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spoke the same
14:40 And when he returned, he found them asleep again (for
their eyes were heavy:) neither knew they what to answer him.
14:41 And he cometh the third time, and saith to them, Sleep on
now, and take [your] rest: it is enough, the hour is come;
behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
14:42 Rise, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
14:43 And immediately while he was yet speaking, cometh Judas,
one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords
and staffs, from the chief priests, and the scribes, and the
14:44 And he that betrayed him, had given them a token, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead
[him] away safely.
14:45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth immediately to him,
and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
14:46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a
servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
14:48 And Jesus answered and said to them, Have ye come out, as
against a thief, with swords and [with] staffs to take me?
14:49 I was daily with you in the temple, teaching, and ye took
me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
14:50 And they all forsook him, and fled.
14:51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen
cloth cast about [his] naked [body]; and the young men laid
hold on him.
14:52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him
were assembled all the chief priests, and the elders and the
14:54 And Peter followed him at a distance, even into the palace
of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed
himself at the fire.
14:55 And the chief priests, and all the council sought for
testimony against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
14:56 For many bore false testimony against him, but their
testimony agreed not together.
14:57 And there arose certain, and bore false testimony against
14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made
with hands, and within three days I will build another made
14:59 But neither so did their testimony agree together.
14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked
Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these
testify against thee?
14:61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the
high priest asked him, and said to him, Art thou the Christ,
the Son of the Blessed?
14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man
sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of
14:63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What
need we any further witnesses?
14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all
condemned him to be guilty of death.
14:65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and
to buffet him, and to say to him, Prophesy: and the servants
struck him with the palms of their hands.
14:66 And as Peter was below in the palace, there cometh one of
the maids of the high priest:
14:67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon
him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither do I understand
what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock
14:69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that
stood by, This is [one] of them.
14:70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that
stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art [one] of them:
for thou art a Galilean, and thy speech agreeth [thereto].
14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, [saying], I know not
this man of whom ye speak.
14:72 And the second time the cock crowed. And Peter called to
mind the word that Jesus said to him, Before the cock shall
crow twice, thou wilt deny me thrice. And when he thought
thereon, he wept.
