And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour hath come, that he may remove out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own who [are] in the world -- to the end he loved them.
And supper being come, the devil already having put [it] into the heart of Judas of Simon, Iscariot, that he may deliver him up,
Jesus knowing that all things the Father hath given to him -- into [his] hands, and that from God he came forth, and unto God he goeth,
doth rise from the supper, and doth lay down his garments, and having taken a towel, he girded himself;
afterward he putteth water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of his disciples, and to wipe with the towel with which he was being girded.
He cometh, therefore, unto Simon Peter, and that one saith to him, `Sir, thou -- dost thou wash my feet?'
Jesus answered and said to him, `That which I do thou hast not known now, but thou shalt know after these things;'
Peter saith to him, `Thou mayest not wash my feet -- to the age.' Jesus answered him, `If I may not wash thee, thou hast no part with me;'
Simon Peter saith to him, `Sir, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.'
Jesus saith to him, `He who hath been bathed hath no need save to wash his feet, but he is clean altogether; and ye are clean, but not all;'
for he knew him who is delivering him up; because of this he said, `Ye are not all clean.'
When, therefore, he washed their feet, and took his garments, having reclined (at meat) again, he said to them, `Do ye know what I have done to you?
ye call me, The Teacher and The Lord, and ye say well, for I am;
if then I did wash your feet -- the Lord and the Teacher -- ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
`For an example I gave to you, that, according as I did to you, ye also may do;
verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor an apostle greater than he who sent him;
if these things ye have known, happy are ye, if ye may do them;
