261While they were eating, Jesustook some bread, and a2after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat ; this is My body."27
And when He had taken a cup and giventhanks, He gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you;28for 3this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for 4many for forgiveness of sins.29"But I say to you, I will not drink of thisfruit of the vine from now on until that daywhen I drink it new with you in My Father'skingdom."305After singing a hymn, they went out to 6the Mount of Olives.
31ThenJesussaid to them, "You will allb7fallawaybecause of Me thisnight, for it is written, '8I WILL STRIKEDOWN THE SHEPHERD, AND THE SHEEP OF THE FLOCK SHALL BE 9SCATTERED.'32"But after I have been raised, 10I will goahead of you to Galilee."33
But Petersaid to Him, "Even thoughall may cfallawaybecause of You, I will neverfallaway."
34Jesussaid to him, "11Truly I say to you that 12this very night, before a roostercrows, you will deny Me threetimes."35Petersaid to Him, "13Evenif I have to die with You, I will not deny You." All the disciplessaid the samethingtoo.
3614ThenJesuscame with them to a placecalled15Gethsemane, and said to His disciples, "Sitherewhile I gooverthere and pray."37
And He took with Him 16Peter and the twosons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed.
38Then He said to them, "17My soul is deeplygrieved, to the point of death ; remainhere and 18keepwatch with Me."39
And He went a littlebeyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is possible, let 19thiscuppass from Me; 20yet not as I will, but as You will."40
And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "So, you men could not 21keepwatch with Me for onehour ?41"22Keepwatching and praying that you may not enter into temptation ; 23the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."42
He wentawayagain a secondtime and prayed, saying, "My Father, ifthis24cannotpassawayunless I drink it, 25Your will be done."43Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.
And He left them again, and wentaway and prayed a thirdtime, saying the samethingoncemore.
45Then He came to the disciples and said to them, "dAre you stillsleeping and resting ? Behold, 26the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.46"Get up, let us be going ; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand !"
4727While He was stillspeaking, behold, 28Judas, one of the twelve, came up eaccompanied by a largecrowd with swords and clubs, who came from the chiefpriests and elders of the people.
48Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him."
49Immediately Judas went to Jesus and said, "Hail, 29Rabbi !" and kissed Him.
And Jesussaid to him, "30Friend, do what you havecome for."Then they came and laidhands on Jesus and seized Him.
