English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 1 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.
2 During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him, 2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.
3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?" 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
7 Jesus answered him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand." 7 Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
8 Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no share with me." 8 "No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."
9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!" 9 "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"
10 Jesus said to him, "The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you." 10 Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you."
11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, "Not all of you are clean." 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, "Do you understand what I have done to you? 12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them.
13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 13 "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
18 I am not speaking of all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But the Scripture will be fulfilled,'He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.' 18 "I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
19 I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he. 19 "I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.
20 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me." 20 I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."
21 After saying these things, Jesus was troubled in his spirit, and testified, "Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me." 21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me."
22 The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom he spoke. 22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.
23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining at table close to Jesus, 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.
24 so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus of whom he was speaking. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means."
25 So that disciple, leaning back against Jesus, said to him, "Lord, who is it?" 25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
26 Jesus answered, "It is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread when I have dipped it." So when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 26 Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon.
27 Then after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, "What you are going to do, do quickly." 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "What you are about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him,
28 Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him. 28 but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.
29 Some thought that, because Judas had the moneybag, Jesus was telling him, "Buy what we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor.
30 So, after receiving the morsel of bread, he immediately went out. And it was night. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. 31 When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him.
32 If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and glorify him at once. 32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and just as I said to the Jews, so now I also say to you, 'Where I am going you cannot come.' 33 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
36 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?"Jesus answered him, "Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterward." 36 Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later."
37 Peter said to him, "Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you." 37 Peter asked, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."
38 Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times. 38 Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
