27"You will all fall away," Jesus told them, "for it is written: " 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.'a128But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee."229
Peter declared, "Even if all fall away, I will not."
30"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "today--yes, tonight--before the rooster crows twiceb you yourself will disown me three times."331
But Peter insisted emphatically, "Even if I have to die with you,4 I will never disown you." And all the others said the same.
