John 18:1-11 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 After offering this prayer Jesus went out with His disciples to a place on the further side of the Ravine of the Cedars, where there was a garden which He entered--Himself and His disciples. 2 Now Judas also, who at that very time was betraying Him, knew the place, for Jesus had often resorted there with His disciples. 3 So Judas, followed by the battalion and by a detachment of the Temple police sent by the High Priests and Pharisees, came there with torches and lamps and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all that was about to befall Him, went out to meet them. "Who are you looking for?" He asked them. 5 "For Jesus the Nazarene," was the answer. "I am he," He replied. (Now Judas who was betraying Him was also standing with them.) 6 As soon then as He said to them, "I am he," they went backwards and fell to the ground. 7 Again therefore He asked them, "Who are you looking for?" "For Jesus the Nazarene," they said. 8 "I have told you," replied Jesus, "that I am he. If therefore you are looking for me, let these my disciples go their way." 9 He made this request in order that the words He had spoken might be fulfilled, "As for those whom Thou hast given me, I have not lost one." 10 Simon Peter, however, having a sword, drew it, and, aiming at the High Priest's servant, cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. 11 Jesus therefore said to Peter, "Put back your sword. Shall I refuse to drink the cup of sorrow which the Father has given me to drink?"
