Matthew 26:45

Overview - Matthew 26
Christ foretells his own death.
The rulers conspire against him.
The woman anoints his feet.
14 Judas bargains to betray him.
17 Christ eats the passover;
26 institutes his holy supper;
30 foretells the desertion of his disciples, and Peter's denial;
36 prays in the garden;
47 and being betrayed by a kiss,
57 is carried to Caiaphas,
69 and denied of Peter.

Matthew 26:45  (King James Version)
Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
 


Sleep on
That is, as it is well paraphrased by Euthymius, "Since you have thus far failed to watch, sleep on the rest of the time, and take your rest, if you can."
