471While He was stillspeaking, behold, 2Judas, one of the twelve, came up aaccompanied 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, 3Rabbi !" and kissed Him.
And Jesussaid to him, "4Friend, do what you havecome for."Then they came and laidhands on Jesus and seized Him.
And behold, 5one of thosewho were with Jesusbreached and drew out his 6sword, and struck the 7slave of the highpriest and ccutoff his ear.
52ThenJesussaid to him, "Put your swordback into its place ; for 8allthose who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.53"Or do you think that I cannotappeal to My Father, and He will at onceput at My disposalmore than twelved9legions of 10angels ?54"Howthen will 11the Scriptures be fulfilled, which say that it musthappenthisway ?"55
At that timeJesussaid to the crowds, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me as you would against a robber ? 12Everyday I used to sit in the templeteaching and you did not seize Me.56"But allthis has takenplace to fulfill13the Scriptures of the prophets."Thenall the disciplesleft Him and fled.
