Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 [When] Jesus had said these [things], he went out with his disciples to the other side of the ravine of the Kidron, where [there] was a garden into which he and his disciples entered. 1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.
2 (Now Judas, the one who betrayed him, also knew about the place, because Jesus often gathered there with his disciples.) 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3 So Judas, taking the cohort and officers from the chief priests and from the Pharisees, came there with lanterns and torches and weapons. 3 So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.
4 Then Jesus, [because he] knew all the things that were coming upon him, went out and said to them, "Who are you looking for?" 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 They replied to him, "Jesus the Nazarene." He said to them, "I am [he]." (Now Judas, the one who betrayed him, was also standing with them.) 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 So when he said to them, "I am [he]," {they drew back} and fell to the ground. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 Then he asked them again, "Who are you looking for?" And they said, "Jesus the Nazarene." 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 Jesus replied, "I said to you that I am [he]! So if you are looking for me, let these [men] go," 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 in order that the word that he had spoken would be fulfilled: "Those whom you have given to me--I have not lost anyone of them." 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."
10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. (Now the name of the slave was Malchus.) 10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
11 So Jesus said to Peter, "Put the sword into [its] sheath! The cup that the Father has given me--shall I not drink it?" 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
12 Then the cohort and the military tribune and the officers of the Jews seized Jesus and tied him up, 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 and brought [him] to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
14 (Now it was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it was better [that] one man die for the people.) 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people.
15 So Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. (Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest.) 15 Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard,
16 But Peter was standing by the door outside. So the other disciple [who was] known to the high priest went out and spoke to the doorkeeper and brought Peter in. 16 but Peter had to wait outside at the door. The other disciple, who was known to the high priest, came back, spoke to the girl on duty there and brought Peter in.
17 Then the female slave [who was] the doorkeeper said to Peter, "You are not also [one] of the disciples of this man, [are you]?" He said, "I am not!" 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not."
18 (Now the slaves and the officers were standing there, having made a charcoal fire because it was cold, and they were warming themselves. And Peter was also standing there with them and warming himself.) 18 It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.
19 So the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus replied to him, "I have spoken openly to the world. I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple [courts] where all the Jews assemble, and I have said nothing in secret. 20 "I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus replied. "I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret.
21 Why are you asking me? Ask those who heard what I have said to them! Behold, these [people] know what I said." 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 Now [when] he had said these [things], one of the officers who was standing by gave a slap in the face to Jesus, saying, "Do you reply to the high priest in this way?" 22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby struck him in the face. "Is this the way you answer the high priest?" he demanded.
23 Jesus replied to him, "If I have spoken wrongly, testify about what [is] wrong! But if [I have spoken] correctly, why do you strike me?" 23 "If I said something wrong," Jesus replied, "testify as to what is wrong. But if I spoke the truth, why did you strike me?"
24 Then Annas sent him, tied up, to Caiaphas the high priest. 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 Now Simon Peter was standing there and warming himself. So they said to him, "You are not also [one] of his disciples, [are you]?" He denied [it] and said, "I am not!" 25 As Simon Peter stood warming himself, he was asked, "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it, saying, "I am not."
26 One of the slaves of the high priest, who was related to the one whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?" 26 One of the high priest's servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, challenged him, "Didn't I see you with him in the olive grove?"
27 So Peter denied [it] again, and immediately a rooster crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they brought Jesus from Caiaphas to the governor's residence. Now it was early, and they did not enter into the governor's residence so that they would not be defiled, but could eat the Passover. 28 Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.
29 So Pilate came outside to them and said, "What accusation do you bring against this man?" 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
30 They answered and said to him, "If this man were not doing evil, we would not have handed him over to you!" 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 So Pilate said to them, "You take him and judge him according to your law!" The Jews said to him, "It is not permitted for us to kill anyone," 31 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected.
32 in order that the word of Jesus would be fulfilled that he had spoken, indicating by what sort of death he was going to die. 32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.
33 Then Pilate entered again into the governor's residence and summoned Jesus and said to him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
34 Jesus replied, "Do you say this from yourself, or have others said [this] to you about me?" 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 Pilate replied, "I am not a Jew, [am I]? Your people and the chief priests handed you over to me! What have you done?" 35 "Am I a Jew?" Pilate replied. "It was your people and your chief priests who handed you over to me. What is it you have done?"
36 Jesus replied, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews. But now my kingdom is not from here." 36 Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."
37 Then Pilate said to him, "So then you are a king!" Jesus replied, "You say that I am a king. For this [reason] I was born, and for this reason I have come into the world: in order that I can testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice." 37 "You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
38 Pilate said to him, "What is truth?" And [when he] had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, "I find no basis for an accusation against him. 38 "What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him.
39 But it is your custom that I release for you one [prisoner] at the Passover. So do you want [me] to release for you the king of the Jews?" 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release 'the king of the Jews'?"
40 Then they shouted again, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" (Now Barabbas was a revolutionary.) 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
