When Yeshua had spoken these words, he went forth with his talmidim over the brook Kidron, where was a garden, into which he entered, himself and his talmidim.
Now Yehudah, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Yeshua often resorted there with his talmidim.
Yehudah then, having taken a detachment of soldiers and officers from the chief Kohanim and the Perushim, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
Yeshua therefore, knowing all the things that were coming on him, went forth, and said to them, "Who are you looking for?"
They answered him, "Yeshua of Natzeret." Yeshua said to them, "I AM." Yehudah also, who betrayed him, was standing with them.
When therefore he said to them, "I AM," they went backward, and fell to the ground.
Again therefore he asked them, "Who are you looking for?" They said, "Yeshua of Natzeret."
Yeshua answered, "I told you that I AM. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way,"
that the word might be fulfilled which he spoke, "Of those whom you have given me, I have lost none."
Shim`on Kefa therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the Kohen Gadol's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Melekh.
