John 13:3-15 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 Jesus, 1knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that 2He had come forth from God and was going back to God, 4 got up from supper, and laid aside His garments ; and taking a towel, He 3girded Himself.

Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet

5 Then He poured water into the basin, and began to 4wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. 6 So He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, "Lord, do You wash my feet ?" 7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand 5hereafter ." 8 Peter said to Him, "Never shall You wash my feet !" Jesus answered him, "6If I do not wash you, 7you have no part with Me." 9 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head." 10 Jesus said to him, "He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean ; and 8you are clean, but not all of you." 11 For 9He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, "Not all of you are clean." 12 So when He had washed their feet, and 10taken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? 13 "You call Me 11Teacher and 12Lord ; and ayou are right, for so I am. 14 "If I then, 13the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 "For I gave you 14an example that you also should do as I did to you.
