541Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the highpriest ; but 2Peter was following at a distance.
553After they had kindled a fire in the middle of 4the 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."
But he denied it, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him."
A littlelater, 5anothersaw him and said, "You are one of them too !" But Petersaid, "Man, I am not!"
After about an hour had passed, anotherman began to insist, saying, "Certainlythismanalso was with Him, 6for he is a Galileantoo."
But Petersaid, "Man, I do not knowwhat you are talking about." Immediately, while he was stillspeaking, a roostercrowed.
617The Lordturned and looked at Peter. And Peterremembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, "8Before a roostercrowstoday, you will deny Me threetimes."62
And he went out and weptbitterly.
