And Jesussaid to him, "Truly I say to you, that a1thisverynight, before2a roostercrowstwice, you yourself will deny Me threetimes."31
But Peter kept sayinginsistently, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And they all were saying the samethingalso.
323They came to a placenamedGethsemane ; and He said to His disciples, "Sithereuntil I have prayed."33
And He took with Him Peter and bJames and John, and began to be very4distressed and troubled.
And He said to them, "5My soul is deeplygrieved to the point of death ; remainhere and keepwatch."35
And He went a littlebeyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, 6the hour might cpass Him by.
And He was saying, "7Abba ! Father ! Allthings are possible for You; removethiscup from Me; 8yet not what I will, but what You will."37
And He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you asleep ? Could you not keepwatch for onehour ?38"9Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation ; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."39Again He wentaway and prayed, saying the samedwords.
And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy ; and they did not knowwhat to answer Him.
