Luke 22:39-49 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
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. 45 When he finished praying, he went to his followers and found them asleep because of their sadness. 46 Jesus said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray for strength against temptation." 47 While Jesus was speaking, a crowd came up, and Judas, one of the twelve apostles, was leading them. He came close to Jesus so he could kiss him. 48 But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you using the kiss to give the Son of Man to his enemies?" 49 When those who were standing around him saw what was happening, they said, "Lord, should we strike them with our swords?"
