Luke 22:34-44 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
34 But Jesus said, "Peter, before the rooster crows this day, you will say three times that you don't know me." 35 Then Jesus said to the apostles, "When I sent you out without a purse, a bag, or sandals, did you need anything?" They said, "No." 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse or a bag, carry that with you. If you don't have a sword, sell your coat and buy one. 37 The Scripture says, 'He was treated like a criminal,' and I tell you this scripture must have its full meaning. It was written about me, and it is happening now." 38 His followers said, "Look, Lord, here are two swords." He said to them, "That is enough." 39 Jesus left the city and went to the Mount of Olives, as he often did, and his followers went with him. 40 When he reached the place, he said to them, "Pray for strength against temptation." 41 Then Jesus went about a stone's throw away from them. He kneeled down and prayed, 42 "Father, if you are willing, take away this cupn of suffering. But do what you want, not what I want." 43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to him to strengthen him. 44 Being full of pain, Jesus prayed even harder. His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
