But Jesus said, "Peter, let me tell you something. The rooster will not crow tomorrow morning until you have denied three times that you even know me."35
Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you out to preach the Good News and you did not have money, a traveler's bag, or extra clothing, did you lack anything?" "No," they replied.
36"But now," he said, "take your money and a traveler's bag. And if you don't have a sword, sell your clothes and buy one! 37For the time has come for this prophecy about me to be fulfilled: 'He was counted among those who were rebels.' a Yes, everything written about me by the prophets will come true."38
"Lord," they replied, "we have two swords among us." "That's enough," he said.
Then, accompanied by the disciples, Jesus left the upstairs room and went as usual to the Mount of Olives.
There he told them, "Pray that you will not be overcome by temptation."41
He walked away, about a stone's throw, and knelt down and prayed,
42"Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will, not mine." 43
Then an angel from heaven appeared and strengthened him.
He prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood. b
