Yeshua said to him, "Yes! I tell you that tonight before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!"
"Even if I must die with you," Kefa replied, "I will never disown you!" And all the talmidim said the same thing.
Then Yeshua went with his talmidim to a place called Gat-Sh'manim and said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray."
He took with him Kefa and Zavdai's two sons. Grief and anguish came over him,
and he said to them, "My heart is so filled with sadness that I could die! Remain here and stay awake with me."
Going on a little farther, he fell on his face, praying, "My Father, if possible, let this cup pass from me! Yet -- not what I want, but what you want!"
He returned to the talmidim and found them sleeping. He said to Kefa, "Were you so weak that you couldn't stay awake with me for even an hour?
Stay awake, and pray that you will not be put to the test -- the spirit indeed is eager, but human nature is weak."
A second time he went off and prayed. "My Father, if this cup cannot pass away unless I drink it, let what you want be done."
Again he returned and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy.
Leaving them again, he went off and prayed a third time, saying the same words.
