Jesus went out [of the city] to the Mount of Olives as he usually did. His disciples followed him.
When he arrived, he said to them, "Pray that you won't be tempted."
Then he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, knelt down, and prayed,
"Father, if it is your will, take this cup [of suffering] away from me. However, your will must be done, not mine."
Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength.
So he prayed very hard in anguish. His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.
When Jesus ended his prayer, he got up and went to the disciples. He found them asleep and overcome with sadness.
He said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up, and pray that you won't be tempted."
While he was still speaking to the disciples, a crowd arrived. The man called Judas, one of the twelve apostles, was leading them. He came close to Jesus to kiss him.
Jesus said to him, "Judas, do you intend to betray the Son of Man with a kiss?"
The men who were with Jesus saw what was going to happen. So they asked him, "Lord, should we use our swords to fight?"
