Luke 22:34-44 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, you will say three times that you don't know me. And you will do it before the rooster crows today." 35 Then Jesus asked the disciples, "Did you need anything when I sent you without a purse, bag or sandals?" "Nothing," they answered. 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it. And also take a bag. If you don't have a sword, sell your coat and buy one. 37 It is written, 'He was counted among those who had committed crimes.'#1(Isaiah 53:12)#2 I tell you that what is written about me must come true. Yes, it is already coming true." 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.

Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives

39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives. His disciples followed him. 40 When they reached the place, Jesus spoke. "Pray that you won't fall into sin when you are tempted," he said to them. 41 Then he went a short distance away from them. There he got down on his knees and prayed. 42 He said, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup of suffering away from me. But do what you want, not what I want." 43 An angel from heaven appeared to Jesus and gave him strength. 44 Because he was very sad and troubled, he prayed even harder. His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
