Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Tonight you will all fall away because of me. This is because it is written, I will hit the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will go off in all directions.a32 But after I'm raised up, I'll go before you to Galilee."
Peter replied, "If everyone else stumbles because of you, I'll never stumble."
Jesus said to him, "I assure you that, before the rooster crows tonight, you will deny me three times."
Peter said, "Even if I must die alongside you, I won't deny you." All the disciples said the same thing.
