34Andsaith unto them,Mysoulis exceeding sorrowfuluntodeath: tarry yehere,andwatch .35And he went forward a little, and fellon the ground,andprayedthat,if it werepossible, the hour might passfromhim.36And he said , Abba,Father, all things are possible unto thee; take awaythiscupfromme:neverthelessnotwhatIwill , butwhatthou wilt.37And he cometh , andfindeththemsleeping , andsaith unto Peter,Simon, sleepest thou ? couldestnot thou watchonehour?38Watch yeandpray , lest ye enterintotemptation. The spirittruly is ready,but the flesh is weak.39Andagain he went away , and prayed , and spake the samewords.40And when he returned , he foundthemasleepagain, (for theireyeswereheavy ,) neitherwisttheywhat to answerhim.41And he cometh the third time,andsaith unto them,Sleep onnow,and take your rest : it is enough , the hour is come ; behold , the Son of man is betrayedinto the hands of sinners.42Rise up , let us go ; lo , he that betrayethme is at hand .43Andimmediately, while heyetspake , comethJudas,one of the twelve,andwithhim a greatmultitudewithswordsandstaves,from the chief priestsand the scribesand the elders.44And he that betrayedhim had giventhem a token,saying , WhomsoeverI shall kiss , that same is he ; takehim,and lead him awaysafely.45And as soon as he was come , he goethstraightway to him, and saith , Master,master;andkissedhim.46And they laidtheirhandsonhim,andtookhim.47Andone of them that stood bydrew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest,and cut offhisear.48AndJesusanswered and said unto them,Are ye come out , asagainst a thief,withswordsand with staves to takeme?49I wasdailywithyouin the templeteaching , and ye tookmenot:but the scripturesmust be fulfilled .50And they allforsookhim, and fled .
51And there followedhimacertain young man, having a linen clothcastabout his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:52And he left the linen cloth, and fledfromthemnaked.53And they ledJesusawayto the high priest:and with him were assembledall the chief priestsand the eldersand the scribes.54AndPeterfollowedhimafaroff,evenintothepalace of the high priest:and he satwith the servants,and warmed himselfat the fire.55And the chief priestsandall the councilsought for witnessagainstJesustoputhim to death ; andfoundnone.56Formany bare false witnessagainsthim,but their witnessagreednottogether .
