The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Kedron, where was a garden, into which he entered, and his disciples. 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 And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus often resorted thither with his disciples. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3 Judas then, having received a band [of men] and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither 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 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that were coming upon him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye? 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them, I am [he]. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them. 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 As soon then as he had said to them, I am [he], they went backward, 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, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am [he]: If therefore ye seek me, let these go away: 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 That the saying might be fulfilled which he spoke, Of them whom thou gavest to me, I have lost none. 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, having a sword, drew it, and smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name 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 Then said Jesus to Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath 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 band, and the captain, and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 And led him away to Annas first, (for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was the high priest that same year.) 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
14 Now Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should 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 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and [so did] another disciple. That disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace 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 stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple who was known to the high priest, and spoke to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 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 saith the damsel that kept the door to Peter, Art not thou also [one] of this man's disciples? He saith, 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 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; (for it was cold) and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed 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 The high priest then asked Jesus concerning his disciples, and concerning his doctrine. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. 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 dost thou ask me? ask them who heard me, what I have said to them: behold, they know what I have said. 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers who stood by, struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? 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 answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear testimony of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou 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 (Now Annas had sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.) 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore to him, Art not thou also [one] of his disciples? 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 servants of the high priest (being the kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off) saith, Did not I see thee 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 Peter then denied again, and immediately the cock crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment-hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might 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 Pilate then went out to them, and said, What accusation bring ye 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 he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up to thee. 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Then said Pilate to them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: 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 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying what death he should 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 into the judgment-hall again, and called Jesus, and said to him, Art thou 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 answered him, Sayest thou this thing from thyself, or did others tell it thee concerning me? 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee to me: What hast thou 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 answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 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 Pilate therefore said to him, Art thou a King then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a King. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth 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 saith to him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them, I find in him no fault. 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 ye have a custom that I should release to you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release to 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 all cried again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
