Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now before the feast of Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come that he would depart from this world to the Father, [and] having loved [his] own in the world, 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 And [as] a dinner was taking place, [when] the devil had already put into the heart of Judas [son] of Simon Iscariot that he should betray him, 2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.
3 [because he] knew that the Father had given him all [things] into [his] hands, and that he had come forth from God and was going away 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 he got up from the dinner and took off [his] outer clothing, and taking a towel, tied [it] around himself. 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 the washbasin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe [them] dry with the towel {which he had tied around himself}. 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 Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?" 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will understand after these [things]." 7 Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet {forever}!" Jesus replied to him, "Unless I wash you, you do not have a 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 {only needs} to wash [his] feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not all [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 the one who would betray him; because of this 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 So when he had washed their feet and taken his outer clothing and reclined at table again, he said to them, "Do you understand what I have done for 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 speak correctly, for I am. 13 "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.
14 If then I--[your] Lord and Teacher--wash 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 just as I have done for you, you also do. 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 slave is not greater than his master, nor 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 understand these [things], you are blessed if you do them. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
18 "I am not speaking about all of you. I know whom I have chosen, but in order that the scripture would be fulfilled, 'The one who eats my bread has lifted up 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 From now [on] I am telling you before [it] happens, in order that when [it] happens 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, the one who receives anyone I send receives me, and the one who 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 [When he] had said these [things], Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified and said, "Truly, truly I say to you that 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 began looking at one another, uncertain about whom he was speaking. 22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.
23 One of his disciples--the one whom Jesus loved--was reclining {close beside} Jesus. 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.
24 So Simon Peter gestured for this one to inquire who it was about whom he was speaking. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means."
25 He leaned back accordingly against Jesus' chest [and] said to him, "Lord, who is it?" 25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
26 Jesus replied, "It is he to whom I dip the piece of bread and give [it] to him." Then [after] dipping the piece of bread, he gave [it] to Judas [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 And after the piece of bread, then Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you are doing, 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 of those reclining at table knew for what [reason] he said this to him. 28 but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.
29 For some were thinking because Judas had the money box, Jesus was telling him, "Purchase {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 he] had taken the piece of bread, he went out immediately. And it was night. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
31 Then, when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is 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 will glorify him immediately. 32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33 Children, yet a little [time] I am with you. You will seek me and just as I said to the Jews, "Where I am going you cannot come," now I say also to you. 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, that you also 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 everyone 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 replied, "Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow later." 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 am I not able to 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 replied, "Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly I say to you, the rooster will not crow until 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!
