And one of them struck the slave of the highpriest and cutoff his rightear.
But Jesusanswered and said, "aStop ! Nomore of this." And He touched his ear and healed him.
52ThenJesussaid to the chiefpriests and 2officers of the temple and elders who had comeagainst Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs3as you would against a robber ?53"While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not layhands on Me; but bthishour and the power of darkness are yours."
544Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the highpriest ; but 5Peter was following at a distance.
556After they had kindled a fire in the middle of 7the courtyard and had satdowntogether, Peter was sittingamong them.
And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and lookingintently at him, said, "Thisman was with Him too."
