View In My Bible
58 But 1Peter was following Him at a distance as far as the 2courtyard of the high priest, and entered in, and sat down with the a3officers to see the outcome. 59 Now the chief priests and the whole b4Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death. 60 They did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on 5two came forward, 61 and said, "This man stated, '6I am able to destroy the ctemple of God and to rebuild it din three days.' " 62 The high priest stood up and said to Him, "Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?" 63 But 7Jesus kept silent. 8And the high priest said to Him, "I e9adjure You by 10the living God, that You tell us whether You are fthe Christ, 11the Son of God." 64 Jesus said to him, "12You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, ghereafter you will see 13THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and 14COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN." 65 Then the high priest 15tore his hrobes and said, "He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy; 66 what do you think?" They answered, "16He deserves death!" 67 17Then they 18spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others islapped Him, 68 and said, "19Prophesy to us, You jChrist; who is the one who hit You?"

Peter's Denials

69 20Now Peter was sitting outside in the 21courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, "You too were with Jesus the Galilean." 70 But he denied it before them all, saying, "I do not know what you are talking about." 71 When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and said to those who were there, "This man was with Jesus of Nazareth." 72 And again he denied it with an oath, "I do not know the man." 73 A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, "Surely you too are one of them; 22for even the way you talk kgives you away ." 74 Then he began to curse and swear, "I do not know the man!" And immediately a rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, "23Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." And he went out and wept bitterly.
