When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him.
Returning the third time, he said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour1 has come. Look, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.42Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!"
Just as he was speaking, Judas,2 one of the Twelve, appeared. With him was a crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests, the teachers of the law, and the elders.
Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him and lead him away under guard."
Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Rabbi!"3 and kissed him.
The men seized Jesus and arrested him.
Then one of those standing near drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.
48"Am I leading a rebellion," said Jesus, "that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me?49Every day I was with you, teaching in the temple courts,4 and you did not arrest me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."550
Then everyone deserted him and fled.6
